  1. I recognize that Kade Renfro is an exceptional talent at quarterback but I'm less worried about that position. Austin Aune had the highest rating at that position of any of our quarterbacks when he came out of high school. If he recovers those skills I don't believe that Renfro could topple him. Will Kuehne is near to or equal to Renfro in passing ability. Ditto for Kason Martin. Jason Bean hasn't yet exhibited great passing skills but he is our best dual threat quarterback with plenty of potential. I believe that we already have very good quarterback candidates; perhaps moreso than any other position.
  2. Perry stated that he was happy here and would be content to finish his career here. He was from East Texas and enjoyed being close to home.
  3. Most posts allude to our weakness at TE, at least until Lee and Roberts get here but have we written off Alberding? I think that he will be a rock as well. Unless we find someone wanting to come here who walks on water, I believe that TE, QB and RB are set for several years.
  4. He may not have been a home run but he's at least a double. True, he only has one interception but he's third in tackles with 58 (40 solo).
  5. Well, Austin Aune has only gotten to throw one pass...but he completed it giving him a 100% completion rate. Now, if he could keep that consistency we'd be 9-0.
  6. I certainly agree with Abner but not Leon King. He did not take near the abuse that Abner did and his contribution was minimal. Further, Abner was arguably the best player in the old AFL, a member of the Texas Hall of Fame and the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame.
  7. I don't know about starters but I count 23 on the roster who were not there last year. Most of those have played this year. Here is the list: Abercrombie DT Rice Banks TE UMass Bryant OL Riverside CC Buechele QB Texas Callaway CB Arkansas Choate DE Utah Fitz LB Drake Flores OL Columbia Granson TE Rice Hogan K West Virginia Holloway LB Kilgore James TE Alabama Jones, Cam'ryn DB Nebraska Jones, Will DT Baylor McBryde LB Auburn McIntyre TE Cornell Moore LB Texas A&M Nelson S Illinois Pugh DT Tulsa Roberts K MTSU Sanders WR Notre Dame Stephens DB UCLA
  8. I don't believe that they were recruits. I believe that they were redshirts and scout team. I have previously seen recruits near the south end of the second level (section 209-210?). I'm not sure if that is/was a permanent or temporary location. I've yet to notice prospects on the sideline but it's possible that commitments might have been included since it appeared that a fairly large number was dressed in black and white.
  9. Kansas did beat Boston College which totally baffled me. They had barely beaten FCS Indiana State in their opening game then lost to G5 newbie Coastal Carolina by five the following week at home. So to beat BC at their place borders on the unbelievable. Les Miles is a good coach and may very well make them a factor but having a statement game this early was shocking. What's more, they scored 17 more points against Boston College than they scored in the first two games combined.
  10. Jim, I had varied reasons for calling for detente with SMU. My oldest daughter's late father-in-law was an SMU graduate and financial supporter and one of the finest men that I've known. Cindy is now on the staff at SMU and it's hard to be too critical of the institution who will support her retirement in a few years. I don't hate anyone. Intense dislike...yeah, but to me that's healthy. On the other hand hate is consuming and unhealthy. It's with you 24/7. Like you, I was an early fan of SMU. I especially liked Doak Walker and later Don Meredith. I'm now looking at Mason Fine in the same light as I saw the Doaker, who was credited with building the (enlarged) Cotton Bowl. I also intensely disliked the cheating of SMU that resulted in the death penalty. However, I attributed that to the head of the Mustang Club and the former governor of Texas (both of whose names escape me at the moment). The average SMU fan was not a participant and did not condone the school's actions. The real reason that I called for detente was that I hoped that we could work together to gain admittance to the WAC for North Texas (or whatever conference SMU was in.) Instead, they chose La Tech. I would still like to see North Texas, SMU, Houston (and maybe Rice) in the same conference. Good competition, cheap travel, and natural rivalry for all. Hell, throw in johnny-come-lately UTSA for all I care. My hope is that Wren Baker and Smatresk have enough diplomancy to make it happen.
  11. And/or throw in Darden and running backs, I don't believe that SMU can cover them all. I think that we can win in a shootout.
  12. No, he redshirted last year but he still has four years of eligibility. (Referring to Jaire Shorter)
  13. In the scrimmage at Mean Green Mania he scored on about a 50-yard bomb.
