    Beating Texas and recruiting

    Beating Texas was a big win, no question, but Just wondering what everyone thinks about the effect that this win could have on recruiting since so many recruits come from the state of Texas. Beating Tech has to help as well. I know coach mentioned 100+ cell phone messages/texts when he turned his phone on after the game, some from recruits who saw the game. This win could give our program a big time boost!

    I would hope this would solidify our position with a couple of recruits, and hopefully get us some more fence sitters. Hoping JJ Gaines gets on board, we land one more OL(a guard prospect), and a HS WR(Babineux or Lucien if we are lucky). That would be great. The on the fence JUCOs will hopefully come our way as well.
