    Re: Texas Is Moving To An Up-Tempo Offense This Spring

    Some think the Texas talent is overrated, but Alabama likes to cherry pick a few. The Longhorns have a reputation of being soft in the weight room. I think that hurts them the most.

There are only 22 starting spots that result in significant playing time and if you don't play you don't get better. Many more very athletic students might be available in a bigger high school but due to the hard work required and the lower chance of playing time they either go to other sports or just don't play at all.

    Homewood in Birmingham for instance isn't that massive but they have fielded teams in the last 10 to 15 years that could play toe to toe with the biggest Texas teams. I'm not saying they would beat them all, just that the difference isn't as much as they would like to believe.

    Bottom line is that it's ALL just high school football, dress it up all you want but it's a MASSIVE step up to Division 1 college football. Any kid who can play there is going to mostly dominate in high school. That's why it takes a real expert to watch the film and know who is really great and who is just taking advantage of slow footed kids who will one day be accountants and computer programmers.

And just sheer moaning & groaning..Sheesh..

    Now you know what those of us in Texas have to put up with. Puts a new twist on the old "those who can, do................" speech.

    Mack better quit worrying about Nick Saban and focus on Kevin Sumlin being in his recruiting backyard.

    Mack already making excuses. With the deep pockets at Texas it sure seems he would be building up a massive staff with the de-regulations but I guess it is easier being lazy and moaning and groaning about it.

    Mack commented on Alabama and the de-regulations. I'll start a new thread with the link.

    Exactly..Coach Saban is playing 100% by the new NCAA deregulation rules..Mack needs to retire ASAP..He's making a fool of himself...

    Re: Texas Is Moving To An Up-Tempo Offense This Spring

    I think TX high school recruits are overrated as well. Tops by far is still Florida & specifically south FL.
    But Alabama HS kids have always been underrated there is some really good down home talent.

    I would be satisfied if we NEVER went to Memphis again.

    Talent is one thing for sure you need but the lessons from CNS & his staff have really brought out a kids Best.

    Mack can't do that, sorry. If a kid needs a little help who is there Applewhite?

    All the major programs get great recruits, truthfully how much difference is there? It's what is done with these recruits once they are on campus and obviously nobody does it better than CNS.

    since we are on the subject of overrated HS football states, y'all can throw in California too.
    I will give Cali kids one thing though, they beat Texas kids most of the time in head to head competition.

    Re: Texas Is Moving To An Up-Tempo Offense This Spring

    Go ahead but the trouble started before Aggy went to SEC and before anyone knew who Johnny Manziel was. If Mack doesn't mope around and actually coaches or handed the program to Muschamp, the course of history changes.

    At the time the run was over, Aggy had nothing to do with it. We had just come off two straight wins over them, including the largest margin in series history. Mack decided to give up and pout after Colt got hurt. That's where it all began, 3 seasons before 11-2 and a Johnny Football Heisman

    They still can't get over it.

    In other words..They're admitting what we Bama Fans have known since the NC defeat..Mack was "Processed" that night..The man will never be the same after that game..
