The Inside Scoop – 12/18/17

Texas is going to sign a talented group of players on Wednesday but a full class it doesn't make. For this class to truly be a success (on paper) it will have to continue rounding out rough edges by adding on the lines, at linebacker, and by landing a supplementary explosive athlete or two. In my years of doing percentages this certainly won't rival some of the most optimistic efforts. Perhaps some chickens are about to come home to roost due to tardy overtures from the staff? We’ll see. Plus quotes after the OV weekend in Austin. All in the Scoop.

Thanksgiving leftovers in the Humidor

The West Virginia win was big in many regards. We've been mentioning how big the win was for team psyche and long-term buy-in, but it was also a good opportunity to raise some money for the school. A booster or two took it upon himself to get the hat passed around and a significant amount of money was pledged in a short period of time. Even at the season's lowest points we mentioned Herman was under no heat from the school or boosters but that doesn't mean key players were in a hurry to part with money. The WVU win was a nice little windfall for your struggling little athletic department.

Fridays in the Humidor – 11/2/17

This specific Texas team knows it owes TCU for the recent pasteings. This sounds like a pretty vengeful bunch, at least on defense. I don't know that Texas will win, but I feel confident TCU will know it's been in a fight. Recruiting tempered some over the course of the week. The OU momentum faded a bit, at least as it concerns Texas. Keondre Coubrn canceled his trip to Alabama, and some big official visits have been set up.
