I still don't understand why the UT staff invited Trent Gow & Jeremiah Gains (neither of them have any offers) to a JD but Christian Morgan (who is considered the best TRUE TE in the state along with Smythe) isn't even invited to a JD.
I'm hoping & guessing that Morgan is UT's True TE back-up option to Smythe and that Gow & Gaines are more H-Back/Flex TE/FB combo options.
You might be right there. Not inviting him could be an indication of how they feel about Smythe.
I agree. I have no problem if a mod turns it into VIP conversation. But it's annoying when normal VIP posters do it.
And I thought Jack Benny was dead.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
I'm not a subscriber to OB anymore. Hookem247 and IT do a WAY better job than OB at info inside the team and program. The only advantages for OB is it has the most active & recognized UT Message board and it's part of the Rivals.com network.
Hayden Christensen - to merely call him wooden is an affront to puppets everywhere...
Or the staff doesn't necessarily agree with someone else's assessment that Morgan is considered the best TRUE TE in the state.
I think that's more likely the case.

Certainty is the enemy. I think.......
That's exactly how I read it. Agree with everything you said.
Do y'all make house calls?
This is all true, but I can not fault a young man for leveraging his athletic ability into the best possible education. If I had son in that position, I would pray he went through the process with the same thinking as this young man. I have seen many a Texas fan slam kids for their choices and many times it is based on the education of the school they chose over UT. I completely agree with that line of thought, because making the NFL is never a sure bet. I hope he looks at the combined package of athletics and education that UT offers and becomes a Longhorn. If he selects Stanford based on best education, i can not hold that against him and will simply tip my hat to him for being one of the few recruits that have their priorities straight.
Or Corey Robinson???
