There were a few questions from Wednesday's VIP chat I was unable to get to, and in this Daily 5 I'll answer those questions.
If you look at Mack's teams that have performed the best against Oklahoma, they've all been the same. Veteran teams with strong leadership cores, or even just having a team of veterans period (if you remember, the 2010 team had multiple chances to win that game against an OU team that won the Big 12).
Interesting that Stoops doesn't use veteran BS has won 8 conference championships compare to Mack's 2
When does Grant of Rights start?
Really good stuff Jeff. Especially the S&C issue. Glad to see MD more involved. I think we were not strong in the trenches last year and have not been for sometime. We have had some physical lines bot '09 to 12 were pretty bad on offense. I think some of that is attributable to the "core." C&Js build the core. Heavy lifting is for power.
In fairness to Wylie, his system has yieled results. He built a monster trench group at TT so I don't think he is to fault for deficiencies and he hasn't been around that long.
By the way, I would love to know how to post questions for this forum if you get to read this post. Thanks a bunch. You guys are the best in the biz by far.

Thanks for the response Jeff. That said, this really bothers me:
"First off, yes, it's true that Maddog will have a bigger role in the day-to-day stuff this summer. The feedback I received from sources centered around the thought process that Maddog's approach to training when it comes to mental toughness is something that will help this team gets to where it wants to be."
Mental toughness? Isn't that mental toughness part of the bigger issue that has led to the belief that Texas players are "soft" and not mentally tough? That mentally tough condition that MadDog instilled in his pledges led rather directly to some serious embarrassment in the Cotton Bowl nearly a half dozen times over the past decade and a half. Explosive training? Isn't a lack of explosive strength what led rather directly to an offensive line that was incapable of imposing its will?
I don't understand this decision. Not one bit.
