Take a look at where this year top kids are going from the state: http://247sports.com/Season/2013-Foo...chool&State=TX.

    Perhaps you guys can close the gap after a few successful seasons assuming UT still struggles, but I don't think you will ever top them. That is like the Cowboys/Texans or the Bama/Barn debate. The Texans have been more successful over the past few years and the Boys are regrettably stuck with Jerry Jones until he croaks. However, Dallas still owns 70% of the Texas fan base as does the Tide (guesstimates). You do have a great QB and coach so your future is bright!
    You will see that I am right very soon!

    Cam does not have this kids heart either.

    While recruiting is the fuel that feeds the program, there is still another piece, and that is the coaching engine that COACHES them up into good players. Imagine if Saban did all his work recruiting in January/February and then went on vacation the rest of the year after the class was signed.....That's Mack Brown. He is clueless as a coach. An amazing recruiter, but clueless as a coach. He's been through like 5 coordinators in the last 5 years....that's an issue. A&M's recruiting is coming on strong, and our COACH is also. The power structure in Texas is switching, it is the perfect storm of new conference and coach.

    You nailed that CrimsonPride. What John Football lacks in stature, he makes up for with heart - it's Tebow-esque.......he HATES to lose, and commands the moment.

    whats most impressive about Manzeil is his elusiveness...He's just so shifty and moves very lightly on his feet....

    As someone said earlier, hes a slick weasel...just cant get a firm hold on him.

    And he is pretty accurate passing while on the run...thats a hard thing to do.

    Maybe, maybe not. It probably hardly ever matters because he's hardly ever running in a straight line.
