    Re: Texas Talent vs. Iowa State

    Sportsmanship is shaking the competitors hand and congratulating them on their victory despite your own disappointment.
    Hanging out shooting the breeze at the 50 is continuing a lackadaisical attitude. We need more of an edge, perhaps more self reflection on 48 rushing yards on a poor rushing defense should have been on James Whites mind instead of catching up with old friends.

    I'm sure James White and the rest of the team had some self-reflection later that will continue into the start of practice this week.

    At the end of the day, it's still just a game.

    Re: Texas Talent vs. Iowa State

    Funny because last year besides the turnovers, I thought ISU was pretty even with Texas on talent. So much easier to reload if you're Texas. No excuses, have to execute better.

    You are an idiot.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Re: Texas Talent vs. Iowa State

    shouldn't the title be "Texas Talent > ISU Talent. And there is nothing wrong with talking with opposition after the game.

    well you kind of can as the coaches are the ones recruiting. look at franklin and vandy. pulling in top tier kids to a place equally as hard to recruit to with much higher academic standards (assumption there).

    its possible, you just have to be a super human recruiter. it would probably be worth it to hire a coach specifically for recruiting, even if that is all he does.

    I'd say Franklin and Vandy may have an advantage just by being in the SEC, not to mention that it's always possible schools are using questionable recruiting techniques. In saying that if we could bring in a coach just to recruit and he was incredible at it and could get multiple four and five star guys a year, I'd be all for it.

    I think James White after the game should have punched opposing players in the face because he was was ****** at them for beating us.

    Re: Texas Talent vs. Iowa State

    I don't think this came down to Texas having better players. This would be more true of Oklahoma, particularly the QB and WRs. I think this game was decided in the game plans and adjustments. Their defensive game plan beat our offensive game plan and we didn't make effective adjustments.

    James White is from freaking Dallas Texas! He has friends all over the field for UT. Give it a rest. They have more talent. It can't be argued. We're getting there. We can't be Texas overnight if ever. Flush the loss and move on. That's what the players have to do the minute the clock reads zeros. Then they go back to film and work on Kansas. James White seems like a tremendous person and a pretty good back. Can you not remember him last year? Had a good year - EVEN DESPITE HIS POOR ATTITUDE AND LACK OF REFLECTION. Our line isn't as good this year. Two guys playing in the NFL! Get some perspective.

"All In" doesn't lend well to slapping *** after the game.
    More stars, yes and a fact of life. More heart? That is a team beating us at our own game.
    What is wrong with this? I see it at the HS level all the time and think it is great that kids are able to leave everything on the field and get along off of it.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
