We are at a new all time level in recruiting . With a few exceptions our main competition is Baylor ,Northwestern ,andTCU. All of these schools are recruiting the leftovers from Alabama, LSU, Florida , and yes the Colli-station group. And guess what; we are actually loosing many recruits to Northwestern and Baylor. I guess because we only won 10 games last year. Something is very wrong in Austin!!
Could be the traffic.

We only won 9 games if that helps with your panic attack.
The bar has been significantly lower than it is today.
Always live on the same side of the river as your job. That helps.
Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide.
I hate it when we loose recruits.
flexibility is key to loose recruits. Yoga. Hot yoga.
If you believe this, you obviously haven't followed recruiting for very long. The level of hyperbole used on this board is approaching the absurd. And it's doing so at ludicrous speed.
why thats just preposterous, egregious and mountainous. Our recruiting has fallen into bolivian.
It's because Mack Brown is a looser! We need moor better cocheing writte now.
Did you mean to post a pic of Steven A Smith? Or Ludacris?
Pic is Ludacris referencing the speed at which we are moving but the comment is whoever although "bolivian" is classic Tyson.
He is quite flexible for an older guy.
I don't know a whole lot about boating in boggy areas though. It could help, but I doubt it.

Saying recruiting is at an all time low for the history of UT is wrong.
Saying it is close to an all time low for Mack Brown in his 15 years is a possibility. The landscape is definitely different than it was 4 years ago and the staff has to work harder on the elite recruits to gain a commitment.
fuck man, they are having to work harder just to get in the top 3 of these kids now.
Do you have to be drunk to post this on this thread?
fvckin fark man, Mack's fighting his heart out against Baylor and TCU. If the kid has an A&M or SEC offer you might as well just close the book. Northwestern just stole a kid from Mack. Akina can't get a DB to commit to save his life.
It seems a lot of the recruiting "gurus" on this board can't decide if they want all of the 4&5 * "straight commit to texas" guys who haven't panned out because of poor evaluations, or the 3* guys that apparently have been whipping texas's ass over the last freaking decade! Losing guys to TCU or Baylor because our coaches suck. God and heaven for bid that a 3* choses Northwestern over TEXAS! maybe he thinks he might acyually have a chance at playing, you know since texas is in on about every freaking major back worth a 5* ranking including his teammate and is looking to take about a half a dozen. Lets change the way we recruit! Wait let's not! Lets stop taking these guys that suck but want to play for texas only, nah we should put our name into every top out of state recruits hat! Ahhhh hell screw that these recruits making us look like fools, we should only take guys who really want to be here! You know Texas Good! These 17 and 18 year olds have figured out the game, maybe with the help of people that really don't have the kids best interest in mind.
None the less. Texas will be fighting this new battle for recruits. SEC has shoveled themselves an underground tunnel into the state of Texas. We have three of the best recruiters in the land and have to push the envelope to secure the best talent out there. We must Develop the talent that is also on campus. Our coaches relationship with texas HS coaches have to tighten up, but our out of state recruiting also needs to become stronger!
By the way, where are these recruits parents when the lessons of pride, commitment and integrity are supposed to shine through their children?
Shit if you can make sense of anything I just posted please explain it to me! Lol. Texas will be fine. We will be the first University to pay a coach 10 mil. We will get back to National prominence and be the contender again! My prediction is that Texas will bookend the National Championship by beating an SEC team! We slayed the mighty Trojan in 05 and we will kill the sec sec sec giant soon! Who knows maybe the Mack Brown farewell tour is this year and he goes out on TOP! Anything can happen!
Sorry for the drunken stupor rant! Lol! Aaahhhh screw it! I'm not sorry!
my fault. i saw it before you. i could have saved some subscribers some time w/ predictable posts by a certain poster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbIuxmaiCOk
