you're an idiot. That is all.
Well, well, well. As I've been hoping all year for, the one offensive performer I really wanted to commit to the Horns, Fort Worth Dunbar receiver Darius White, did just that today at the Under Armour All American High School game played in Florida on Saturday.
The class is rounding up really, with 2 possibly 3 more high profile recruits to chime in really soon as to their indications of their college preference for the next 4-5 years.
So far, we are the #2 rated recruiting class, depending on the rankings you choose to give the nod to, with the potential of garnering *5 DE Jackson Jeffcoat out of Plano West, and *5 OOS LB, Jordan Hicks out of Ohio, as well as the potential de-commit of highly ranked LB Corey Nelson from Dallas Skyline from his committment from Aggsy.
Either way the recruiting class with the development of Darius White's committment, in conjuction with the de-commit from LSU by Skyline WR Mike Davis to us, really boosts the status of this years class.
IMO, 2002, is still the best in the Mack era, followed by the 2008, then 2006 class. This years class may be inches close to that 2002 class when all is said and done.
Anyway, it is a good day to be a Horn!

I'm sorry, but I havea to apologize to you fellow Orangebloods of the 'former' LN that came by here to check my anti eATMe journal, that I was planning to post up.
Initially I wanted to post my usual, anti eATMe rant type pictorial journals that I used to do on the LN. However, my idiot roomate, who is the owner of this house, did not pay Time Warner, for the internet bill, and thusly, I was out of my capabilities to upload a journal full of pics.
I could only use my brother in laws ISP in Corpus, when I went down on Turkey Day to celebrate the daily festivities with my family. I did not have the time to enter a journal. Hell, I didn't even have time to eat, as it was time for the turkey day showdown between the good guys, and our inbred cousins to the northeast.
However, today this morning on OB's, I came across this link. I think you'll get the gist of it. I did not actually notice it during the game, but the guy that does these, does an excellent job of highlighting and blowing up the action in slow motion.
I think you'll get a laugh, of course at the expense of one of the 'milkmen'.
LIke Jimmy, a.k.a., Champs2005 stated on my last journal, one of my favorite slogans on those T-shirts that were so popular on the 40 acres in the 80's, ..... "OU Sucks, eATMe Swallows"!!!!
Oh yeah, .... we got notified yesterday, that we would be getting Big 12 CCG tickets.

Well, ol well, it's that time of the year. My second favorite week of the year. (SxSW Spring Break Week being first).
It's eATMe Hate Week, fellow Orangebloods. You know what that means don't you? Yep, you guessed it. Countless pics of our sheep humping inbred friends to our northeast.
Please allow this journal to be a teaser journal in preclusion to what will arrive when I come back from work later tonight.
Y'know. All the de-meaning, de-basing, yet factual photos of aggsy ineptitude that have ever surfaced the internet.
Until later tonight ladies and gents, ..... eATMe Blows!!!!

Yeah, it's reared it's ugly head again. Yesterday, Ketch broke the news that Darrell Scott had decided to leave CU. It was all over the Buff blog network sites.
You fellow Horns remember D. Scott don't you? He was the guy that pulled a 'Perriloser' on us 2 seasons ago. Yeah, that guy.
I only have one thing to say. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!
I wonder if his mom will be transferring also. BWahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!
Paging Thayer Evans. Paging Thayer Evans. (Cue the drum for wannabe OU douchebag journalist idiots)
Among other things in rr land this morning, .... it's only 4 more weeks till my most favorite time of the year. No, not the start of football season, nor St. Patricks day, nor even SXSW week.
Instead, my most favorite week, is Aggroloid beatdown week.
My landlord, sends his son to eATMe. I gave him shit this morning. He shot back, that the sheep humpers were utilizing their best defensive player in practice this week, to begin the task of taking the cheap shot on Colt.
Even though my landlord does really understand the rivalry between our two schools, he is totally clueless as to the ridiculousness of all things 'aggy'.
Today, I enlightened him to the countless youtube videos out there that covered all things glorious in Jr. Collie Station. Why heck, I even stumbled upon the 'Tra La La' video.
What does he then do? He walks out of the room, and says that Texas better watch out. HaHa! My landlord, has officially become an Ag turd.
It's gonna be fun in this house the next 4 weeks. Oh man, I can't wait. Nothing but Aggsy hate coming from me. I said it before on the LN, I'll say it again. I hate no team more than I hate eATMe. That includes BlowU, and tOSU Suckeyes.
Have a great day, RT Horns.

Don't know if y'all have had a chance to see this. Go to this link. Sorry, I can't get it to format on here. I have been having problems with my computer functions.
Ever since I got banned from TexAgs, Soonerscoop, and Photobucket, I have not been able to utilize all the function tabs keys on this site.
I can't even bold, italicize, etc., etc.
So, here is the address. Just paste it in your browser and hope it works.
It is funny as shit!

Hope y'all have a great halloween. The weather will be perfect here in heaven, a.k.a. Austin,Tx. It will be cool, clear and crisp. In other words perfect football weather.
Don't forget to cheer on the Horns, as they take a halloween trip to 'scary' T.Boone Pickens stadium.
So without further delay, let me get this shit started right now, .........
.......... from my bedroom about to hit the sack, .... TEXAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are a few things to look out for in tomorrow game versus Okie Lite. Courtesy of OB's C.Brown.
Take it away coach Boom!
Will Muschamp's defense got gashed for 217 yards rushing last season by Oklahoma State. But Muschamp wanted OSU to run last season, so he showed the Cowboys seven in the box and invited them to run.
He felt that was better than having Brandon Pettigrew and Dez Bryant catching passes from Zac Robinson against a secondary with two freshmen safeties.
I look for that philosophy to totally change Saturday night in Stillwater. I look for Coach Boom to stick nine in the box and dare Robinson to throw it to a cast of young-but-talented receivers.
Like he did against Oklahoma, Boom will attempt to take away the run, and look to pressure Robinson and take his chances with man-to-man coverage from a secondary that grows in confidence by the game.
1. Muschamp said Oklahoma State is as balanced a team (like Oklahoma) as Texas will face all season.
"They are No. 6 in the nation in scoring," Muschamp said. "They do not give up many negative plays at all. They give up very few tackles for loss. Four sacks on the season.
"They are very well tied together in their running game and their play-actions off of the running game. They give you a lot of what I would call run-pass conflicts based in coverage of faking the ball, throwing the ball down the field and then having the same runs off that, the same looks.
"The quarterback is a very experienced player. He does a good job of taking care of the football. Lot of pocket movement. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an outstanding athlete. He knows where to go when he feels pressure. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a mobile guy who has been very accurate.
"The last game, he only had four incompletions for the game. So accurate with the football, pocket movement and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve really stepped up out wide. (Hubert) Anyiam has really come in and done a nice job for them. He has 19 receptions the past two games.
"You see the vertical game. Anyiam's a guy they feel comfortable with without Dez Bryant in the mix. Russell Okung is an outstanding offensive lineman. So they do a nice job.
"WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always felt like Keith Toston and Beau Johnson were good players, the backup running backs. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll give you a different flavor each week."
2. The Texas defense has only given up 10 points on the 15 turnovers by the Texas offense, and both of those scores when the turnovers occurred inside the UT 10-yard-line (FG by ULM and TD by Colorado).
"Offensively, some teams are different from others," Muschamp said. "Some teams, when they get a turnover, they want to immediately take a shot. Some teams they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t change what they do philosophically based on getting a turnover. They would just a soon run their offense.
"We felt like Missouri is a team that likes to take a shot after a turnover, so we pressured. The longer, developing plays take longer to develop, so we pressured and made sure our eyes were right, so we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t lose someone in zone coverage. (UT ended up with a 14-yard sack that killed Mizzou's drive).
"We just preach from day one that certain things are going to happen, and sudden change turnovers are part of that. Regardless of the situation, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not going to have a negative attitude toward it.
"I always tell the guys weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re the firemen. We gotta go put the fire out. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on the 3-yard-line. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on the 50. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got to stop the momentum, stop the surge of the other team. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a great momentum changer if you can hold them to a three-and-out, hold them to a field goal in the red area.
"ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a big momentum boost to our kids because they understand, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ever want the other team to score. But if you can force people to kick field goals in the red area, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a win.
"They understand that regardless of how they got down there, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good job to hold them to a field goal. We address that in training camp and throughout the year."
3. Senior CB Deon Beasley got his first start last week against Missouri after missing time with an academic issue. Beasley is still listed as a starter heading into the Oklahoma State game.
"HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s practiced well and prepared well, and we play the guys who practice hard," Muschamp said. "IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m young but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m old fashioned in that how youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to prepare through the week is probably how youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to play on Saturday. Not always , but for the most part. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s done a good job. He deserves it."
4. Like Oklahoma, Oklahoma State is a team that will hurry to the line, take a look at the defense, and then look to the sideline for an adjustment. Against OU, Muschamp used that opportunity to load the box and talk OU into getting out of running plays and into passing plays. I think that will happen again Saturday night. But that's just me.
"TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re a look back team," Muschamp said. "TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll hurry up on you. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll look back twice. But I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a whole lot of change.
"YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got a lot on your plate (as the head coach and offensive play caller). But Mike Gundy's got a tremendous staff. (Co-offensive coordinator/WRs coach) Gunter Brewer and (Co-offensive coordinator/OL coach) Joe Wickline are two guys I know who I have a tremendous amount of respect for.
"And if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to call the plays as a head coach youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got to have guys you really trust who are in the room. With all the time constraints you have, you may not have enough time to see all the film, so you have to rely on someone you trust to help put the game plan together.
"Gunter I know through recruiting and coaching against him. And Joe (Wickline) was at Florida when I was at LSU. A guy who has always done a nice job. He was with Larry Fedora for a long time."
5. Muschamp said Oklahoma State was able to get in a rhythm last year offensively that kept the Longhorns' D off-balance, allowing Kendall Hunter to run 18 times for 161 yards (8.9 ypc). Mike Gundy said this week Hunter's injured ankle would only allow him to play eight to 10 snaps.
"We needed to execute a little bit better up front," Muschamp said. "I think the tempo got us out of sorts a couple times. We ne
Well, yesterday, a Rivals 250 athlete, confirmed that he would be indeed be committing to Texas for the 2010 season. There was a bit of a glitch though.
The catch, ......... he had to de-commit from UT. The other UT, ... Tennessee.
This one caught me by surprise. You see, Demarco Cobb, a super talented WR out of Tulsa, OK, had initially in his recruitment this early part of the year, us as his favorite. He said back then, "it wasn't even close".
Then he had a change of heart. With each and every unofficial and official trip he took to various schools that were offering for his services, he said that particular school was the new favorite.
Once this started, I noticed the trend as did many others. We were more than happy to see him commit back in September to the other UT.
Now, that he is on board, I have mixed feelings.
Also, consider the fact that Lache Seastrunk, the 'supposed' top back in the state, whom I have never been impressed with. We were in a bit of a recruiting battle for him earlier. No more however. The reason the staff backed off, was his too consistent behavior of liking the most recent school he visited.
Notice a trend here?
I went on record back during the LN days, that I saw Lache as a LSU candidate all the way. His attitude and demeanor, are tailor made for Les Miles.
So for Cobbs to be given consideration again, I just wonder if Mack is gonna allow it. Cobbs has spoken to Bruce Chambers, the coaching staff member assigned to his recruitment, and given him the acknowledgement that he wants to be verballed to the real UT. You have to remember, that in the beginning of the recruiting season, (February), Cobbs gave every indication he would verbal. Yet he never attended the junior days camps. He kept telling Mack, he would make it down to Austin. Week by week would pass. Same word, same result. No show.
Will Mack take in his pledge now? Mack has not spoken to Cobbs as of this morning, as this announcement was not made till late yesterday afternoon. I will find out later today on the stance from Mack.
Right now, we are in a battle for the services of FW Dunbar *5 WR Darius White. BlowU being the chief antagonist on that front. It has appeared in recent weeks that BlowU will win that battle. Can't understand that one, other than the fact that one of his HS teammates has already committed and Stoops'id' is using that as a fulcrum to swing the recruitment his way.
So, if the staff is gonna pass on D. White, and his 'reported' leanings, well then I'm skeptically willing to be accepting of Cobbs decison to re-pledge towards the Horns.
*** It is important to note, that I had originally posted a few months ago, the 20th and 21st pickups for this recruiting class. During the summer, we had 2 de-committments. Ahmad Dixon the *4 safety out of Waco Midway who committed to Baylor, and Ross Apo, the *4 WR from Arlington Oak Ridge who committed to BYU.

Man, I'm pissed. I have so much good material to show you guys about our so called rivals. It is pure gold. Yet, I can't upload from Photobucket.
Have any of you seen the 'Tra La La' milkman fire up video from this past weekends game against KSU?
I didn't book mark it, but if you want to see gay, dressed up in white, well then that video is all you need. I even think I laughed so hard, I gave myself a hernia.
Yes, BlowU week was a big success. Got to see U2. Got to go to the fair, The Gingerman, Dealey Plaza, got sunburned, drunk 3 nights in a row, saw a massive front end crash at 2 a.m. off McKinney avenue, and the ultimate, ........ saw BlowU and Bob Stoopid get punked by coach Boom and his D.
6 down, and 6 more to go before the Big 12 title game.
