Being a former Longhorn player is very low on the list of reasons why a coach should be hired to return to his alma mater. I've actually seen the suggestion of Vince Young as quarterbacks coach on this here internet. Even for one of the greatest Longhorn heroes ever, that should count for next to nothing. Rising through the coaching ranks, much like playing time, should be a meritocracy.
We start 2015 with a jam-packed Inside Scoop. We look at the coaching upheaval and what we expect next. We touch base with some Florida contacts and gather the latest. We also talk to recruits at Army All-America and talk to a top recruit after the UT coaching change. Plus, Taylor's back and J'Covan Brown news. All in the Scoop.
As I sit here in the Orlando airport I'm reminded of the EPIC airport thread that broke out the other day. Truly worthy of the perma-pin any time you have a thread produce such organic quality. Next time I hope we can talk about truck stops. More from Orlando at the Under Armour All-star festivities.
Some decently interesting stuff in here but no new revelations, I don't think. I missed a couple of guys I'll try and get tomorrow. It's impossible to get everyone in one fell swoop when a gathering like this gets out. Remember the game Red Rover? Now send 100 football prospects right over at the same time. Here's what I got.
In this week's Inside Scoop, we get ready for the Under Armour and Army All-American games next week as well as catch up with Kris Boyd, Ryan Newsome, and others. We also talk to a 2017 point guard who recently visited Austin and look closer at the top WR in Texas for 2016.
What a difference one 30 minute announcement ceremony makes. Percentages, they're fun again, for the first time in years. As you might expect, I love evaluation, but what you might not know is I prefer it take me 15 seconds to realize a guy is a take rather than watching a five minute highlight tape four times to maybe come to that conclusion.
Thursday Scoop! Surprises are nice from time to time, aren't they? There will be plenty to discuss tomorrow so we wanted to post this info today. Plus Friday Justin travels to Arlington to cover the state games. When I'm done writing this, I'll be headed back to Mesquite in preparation for tomorrow's big announcement.
