I don't understand how a staff could let this happen. What makes this worse is that 2014 looks weak and Texas is behind some other schools for the top dogs. Add to the fact that Mack refuses to look out of state and you got yourself a two year shit-sandwich in the making on the defensive line.
perplexed? no, what did you expect when we have the worst D coordinator in the big12. why would a recruit want to come play for him?
I'm only upset that powers and dodds refused to make the change at head coach and fire mack. Everyone is kicking his ass and he has no answer for it. Mack blows!!
it's more than just Diaz. Yea he sucks at just about every aspect of his job, but some of this has to fall back on the head coach.
FIFY. Leadership and responsibility start at the top
Well, looks like we just got a UH DLIneman transfer...walk-on. No worries, boys...
Not really. Mack allowed McWhorter to only sign 2 OL in 2010 while Aggy hit a homerun with their OL class.
if the Dfence plays like last year this time next season this board will look all different. We will all be reading about the new staff and what they have done in their first year of recruiting....

sorry you're "perplexed".
-Robinson has been committed to Texas for 11 1/2 months. he looked at USC and Alabama in September but remained committed to Texas. should we have planned around the horrible possibility? yes, and we did.
-Manning was NEVER coming to Texas. most had him pegged for OU. aTm was a surprise. we offered him. he's busy on his twitter and facebook talking trash. talented? yes. a fit @ Texas? i don't think so. five-fingers Granger and Stoops probably didn't help. neither did a current player telling him on-line we didn't need him because he have Malcolm Brown. he was never coming here. he was offered and recruited though. can't get all of them and won't most of the time.. so, no there.
-Golden is an excellent DT. he was also expelled from school and had to transfer after fighting a student and a coach i believe(not sure). i've read he may be a grade risk. i have no idea if that's true or not. not sure if he was ever interested in Texas. if he was not recruited, there's probably a good reason.
-Huggins apparently is a grade risk for qualifying. other than Peter Jinkins, Dallas Skyline has taken a dump on Texas recently. he's an aTm decommitment. no thanks.
-Walker i really don't know much of. maybe that's a miss. who knows?
-Billings it seems we are still far behind from getting. we're still trying. TCU over Texas? Baylor over Texas for some flying classes after he's stated publicly he wants to get away from home? a bit strange.
what other DT should we have exactly recruited? a JUCO? recent history suggests we have. i doubt that was ignored.
your "perplexed" perception is exactly what it is.
"What makes this worse is that 2014 looks weak and Texas is behind some other schools for the top dogs."
2014? i remember a former friend telling me in July 2009 Texas had found better DE than 4-5-star Richetti Jones. his name? Sam Acho. who is that guy? never heard of him. it's a tad early to start grading the 2014 class.
let's not shut the door on Norman and Boyette this early.
Mannys defense is not hard to sell against.
you sound just like Mack, making excuses and deciding to mail it in when you don't even attempt to recruit players outside of the state lines.

Yea. The stunt man seems to inspire no one. The recruits AND the fan base seem equally unimpressed.
you sound like someone blatantly unskilled in research.
that looks like 20 claimed offered out of 40-43 out. around or close to 50%. hmmmm.
"you don't even attempt to recruit players outside of the state lines."
even if you think half of those offers are lies(they're not) we're still around 1/3.
you should do more reading and less posting.
TexAus are you telling us it's not our staff's fault that there are no defensive linemen in this class? Ok great.....I get it, just bad luck. I feel better now.
That's quite the list of OOS DL prospects.
Do you see Cole Luke as more of a nose tackle or three technique?
Luke is definitely a 3. Sua Cravens has 1tech written all over him
Yeah, we'll you're sounding like someone who has zero clue...zero
How many dt's in that list? Oh wait are you gonna change the subject/your point again?
For future reference, if you don't have a somewhat valid/reasonable argument, keep your mouth shut before bashing other posters genius.
I assume this means Texas will hit the JUCOs for DLs now?
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
In the right weight regimen, I think Sua would be better off as a 0 in a 3-4.
He has a natural ability to take on and split double-teams, and in the US Army bowl he was two-gapping in the middle like a pro against the best C prospects in America.
