    Gilbert's issue has always been between the ears. Funny how he's still an NFL quarterback even if he's a career 3rd string quarterback and Kaepernick isn't. White privilege.

    So much for the optics of firing a coach during a pandemic, South Carolina about to cut a $15M check to Muschamp.

    He didn't have to think when he was in HS, then got exposed in college, but he's pretty much one of the most physically talented kids you will ever see.

    Texas - KU postponed. KU didn’t meet COVID threshold.

    He de-committed weeks ago, right?

    Why does this matter?

    It doesn't really. Just a nice little reminder that top kid from Texas, whether a Texas legacy or actually committed, don't want anything to do with Herman and the program.

    Texas, the state, has lots of QBs and RBs....I'm way more concerned with UT recruiting all of the OLs.

    To me, they seem to be slacking in that regard. DLs galore! I want a roadgrading OL.

    Agreed. Losing out on the Brockmeyer twins is almost worse than losing out on Quinn, even as a generational QB talent. Apparently a lot of it stemmed from Herman not offering their big brother Luke a scholarship. The fact that we don't develop OL for **** probably didn't help either.

    Herman is out of his league he is not the attention to detail guy that UT needs.

    Meyer or bust.

    Kaepernick doesn't want to play anymore unless he's making 20 million per year. Nobody's going to pay him that kinda money.

    Lol there’s a better chance we see Troy Aikman come down from the booth to play QB for the Cowboys than Kap.
    Pretty sure Kap is never going to play again in the NFL

    Seems like the consensus from a lot of the “insiders” is that Herman is essentially one loss away from getting canned. And apparently off field factors have played a large role.

    I have no idea what’s gonna happen but to me CDC’s response has been a pretty big tell. Someone tallied it up and he’s tweeted something like 3 tweets about football since OU, while tweeting out 20+ for volleyball, swimming, etc...

    Another failed UT football coach........ at some point the school needs to look internally and figure out why outside of Brown and Akers, no one has been able to win at UT for 40 years.... over the last 11 seasons the Horns have finished ranked 3 times and only once better than 19th.

    UT shouldn't be winning a national title every year but something is off and has been.

    The Aggies went for a big name and it appears that they've turned the corner this year.

    Idk. I agree with Herman and think that's a really dumb thing to look at. Overall, Texas would be better off if we had 1/3 of the number of "insiders" trying to sell monthly subscriptions by peddling drama.
