James Hale is an idiot.
Mack Brown is an idiot.
Keith Ford is an idiot.
Keith Ford Sr. is an idiot.
I am an idiot.
He's 17. Most 17 year olds ARE simpletons.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
Let me preface my remarks by saying that I want Mack Brown gone.
With that being said, f*ck Keith Ford. Junior and senior. And if you're taking their side against Texas, f*ck you too.
Absolutely correct ( but how much fun would that be for Hale to write ? )

i might be the best looking guy in the world and hung like a horse, but if i ignored some chick all night and then called her at 3am for a booty call, is that rude? yeah, it is. just because we've all done it, doesn't mean it's not.
if i had been committed to any school's rival for the better part of a year, and that rival hadn't said so much as one word to me over that time, but contacted me with 2 weeks to go before nsd because they had struck out on all their prospects at my position, i would laugh straight to their face and ask what the hell they were thinking.
if this story came out about aggy or ou calling our guys, this kid would be held up as a hero. matter of fact, we've had similar stories several times over the last couple of years. one kid who threw the horns up in gov goodhair's face (i want to say malcolm brown, but not sure). another who talked plenty of shit about ou at the under armour (army?) game (think it was a dt, again - not sure).
Yeah, but you're Roger Huerta, whereas Dick Schmoe can't get away with this, Roger Huerta can, and does. Do you not think Alabama, Ohio State, or any other Jones does this? For once, I'm actually proud of our guys for the effort.
i'm not saying we shouldn't do it. we absolutely should. well, hold up....we should have been keeping in touch w/ ford, wilson, white, etc all along, and most especially since 12/3 when hicks flipped. but that's neither here nor there, because that obviously didn't happen - at least w/ ford. sounds like it might have been happening w/ wilson, but then, he was more open to texas in the first place.
there's a HUGE difference between what we should do and how we should expect others to react. he's been committed to our rival for a year w/o a word from us - hell yeah it looks rude to him to be contacted at the last minute like he's a little bitch just waiting for us to call. on our part, who cares what he thinks, unless he's willing to flip. you'll never know if you don't ask - just like that booty call.
point is, he's not wrong in his assessment. but we aren't wrong for asking either.
These recruits have so many feelings. We can't talk to one because the other gets mad. The other gets mad if we don't offer in a timely manner. I don't know how you win.
I think his word choice is wrong. It's not rude to ask if he's interested so late. The kid feels disrespected. Boo hoo. Truth is we have a spot. I'm glad we're asking the top rb's, if they say no...moving on.
I hope the stupid kid never amounts to anything. I hope I'm not being rude saying that.
Ford's comments are great locker room bulletin board material. Hope our D-Line are reminded of his comments and blast him every chance they can. Enjoy your mediocre college Ford, where you have to drive yourself to a field for practice, while our boys enjoy life in Austin and being bussed to practice...
Brevity is not his strength.
I am sure that you will do many productive things in your life. Just never try your hand at recruiting. You have a tin ear.
You're missing the point here. I don't think anyone is bashing Ford for not being interested. He never had any interest to begin with. The staff could've hounded him all year, he wasn't coming. But to say calling him up to gauge his interest now is "rude" or "disrespectful" is just dumb on his part. It would in fact be stupid for the staff NOT to call now, they've lost their lone rb commit and just hired a new rb coach, wtf are they supposed to do? Not sure how this is a knock on Texas other than not keeping better in touch (but once again, that would've been fruitless here anyway).
IMO, all parties involved here look pretty stupid but the Ford gang comes off as extremely butt hurt.
If you don't like other schools coming after committed kids go hang out with Bret bielema, cause yall will be the only ones who feel that way.
yeah, that comment will make all the difference in the world. maybe they'll only whip us by 30 now.
Luckily our practice fields, dorms and stadium are all within a block of each other. If your DL needs these, completely meaningless comments to get motivated for RRS then there are major issues.
Oh, there are definitely major issues
Thanks for the downvote Self....from what I saw in a "VIP Video" of practice, where your o-line had to jump in one of the guys old trucks and drive through town to get to practice, it didn't seem like it was a block away....it just seemed funny, while I know are guys have charter buses to get to practice. I'm just saying that I think Ford should get a couple of extra licks for his comments.
