Malachi Nelson is a stud. If the Aggies ever start spending the money on OL that they have spent on DL and other positions, then watch out.

It is the only way they were going to have a chance to land him. It's Jerry Maguire time!

In this market, you do what ya gotta do. He will/would be a game changer for their recruiting class.

Ags already have a pretty decent recent history of OL development (early last season not withstanding.) The Ag OL was final 3 for the Joe Moore award the season before last. I believe there are 11 Aggie offensive linemen currently playing key roles for NFL teams, including a first rounder from last year's OL.

The Aggie OL was pretty young and inexperienced (and banged up) last season, but they are returning two freshmen all Americans (Fatheree and Foster) and a pre season all American and Lombardi & Outland (and Wuerffel) watch lists candidate, Layden Robinson. There is also much more quality depth than last season. I think OL will ultimately be a strength of this year's team.

Isn't 2024 supposed to be a stellar recruiting cycle for OL prospects in Texas (especially compared to the current cycle?)

I'll go first...Baylor today vs the Baylor from the 90's & 2000's is a great program turnaround. Some bumpy areas with Briles but even that rebound was pretty remarkable with some great hires in Rhule and Aranda. Definitely didn't think Baylor would be back where they are after that whole mess.
I'll give it a shot

I think Sark hiring Gary Patterson was the best assistant/coordinator hire of the off-season. He's a great coach who did a lot with less than some of the big programs he competed against in the B12.

I think Venables was the best HC hire of the offseason. He's a little weird, and he acts like Dabo, but he's a solid coach and seems like a good guy. OU fans should supprt this dude.

Both good mentions and agree with both. If GP can't get a fire lit in ATX on the Defensive side, not sure who can. I think he will help set a culture of toughness and accountability. OU did a great job with their hire and interested to see how Lebby's Offense sets in.

Rumor has it they're in a pretty good position with Branch regardless of what Nelson does. Not saying they'll land either (I personally think the Nelson buzz is mostly clickbait - "Messageboard Geniuses" sounds like it's sole purpose is to troll various message boards) but I wouldn't be surprised to see them flip Branch. I would be very surprised to see Nelson sign anywhere other than USC.

One or both would be a nice pull. I think they are chasing clicks but there has to be a story in there somewhere right??

I agree. Nelson would be a helluva pull from a coach he has a longstanding relationship with and a history of putting QB's in the league. But, it's a whole new world with this NIL business. It's pretty wild to see what has taken place and I'm sure it's not going to slow down anytime soon.

Branch would be huge.

Not that anyone besides myself and maybe one or two others on here care, but I found this article pretty good. For your light reading pleasure and a change of pace. For the record, I just want my Mustangs to finish stronger than we have the last couple of years. Oh and beat the Frogs again-more so this year than any since the '80's.

Guess who is in the Top 15 for having one of the WORST college football programs this year...... Texas should be 1-0 afterwards

Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks
ULM got off to a promising start under new head coach Terry Bowden but would lose their final five games of the season. The lack of a passing offense led to the demise and will need to be addressed this season if they have any shot at reaching four wins again. The problem will be their schedule, which is brutal for a team trying to rebuild. They begin the season at Texas and then travel to Alabama two weeks later. Those paydays will help the Hawks down the road, but not this year.

If A&M is paying $15M for Nelson, does that mean Texas is paying $45M for their class this year? That's what I heard. Obviously, it's true. Now go spread the word.

Also, if we're paying Nelson (#2 rated overall QB) $15M, does that mean we paid Weigman (#2 rated overall QB) $15M last year?

So retarded to even think that kinda money is being spent on 1 player out of 85

Our O-Line is pretty darn good. And that’s before NIL. The 2 true freshman were outstanding last year and made first team all freshman SEC. Not to mention a first round NFL draft pick and a kid that will be a junior who was named to the preseason 1st team all SEC watchlist this year. But that D-Line haul gets attention for obvious reasons.

I’ll play nice even though I usually do.

Baylor - what a great hire with Arranda. Bears will compete for another conference championship.

OkState - how nobody has pulled Gundy out of Stillwater still baffles me. Kudos to him for staying loyal. My pick to win the conference.

Texas - Bijan and Worthy are the most skilled players in the Big12-2-2+4. Will the OL allow them to do damage?

L$U - Bayou Brian has been able to recruit at a high level. They scare the **** out of me.

Ole Miss - gonna be a problem and ruin someone’s season. Joey Freshwater has them ready. Can they replace Corral is a big ?

Arkansas- they could win 10 games. That matchup with the Ags in week 4 will likely springboard the winner to a 9 or 10 win season.

Bama - screw you little Nicky. Eat **** and die

Yes, it is highly unlikely. The rumblings are that he will NIL for around 2 million at SC. Not far off the 7 figures Ewers puled in from NIL when he toyed with tOSU.

Have you ever heard Gundy talk?? The dude has an edge to him and unlike Saban's edge, he hasn't won any championships so he gets discounted as an A-hole. However, the dude can coach football, he had to have folks coming to him but not with enough dough I guess???

Tennessee came after Gundy pretty hard - twice I think - but that's the only school he has talked to that I recall (at least that was publicly known about) Most recently when he reportedly got cross ways with T Boone. He's got a great life in Stillwater and doesn't seem to have much ambition to go anywhere else.

Is anyone using YouTubeTV for CFB? I used Sling last year because it had the Pac12 Network, but I didn't get ABC so I missed many games. YouTubeTV has local channels plus the regular ESPN and FS1. I hate how the streaming service seems to take forever switching back and forth between the games. My local cable company has $40 in fees per month so I will not use them just on principle.

I have YTTV and it works fairly well for us. It goes unused for long periods of time, but we keep it, essentially, for college football and Aggie baseball.

Congrats to tech on the stadium expansion. Tortillas and batteries should fly farther being thrown from a second level!

This leaves ESPN void of inventory of games so they probably ink a new deal with the Big 12, thus releasing OU and Texas to go to the SEC earlier and with less of an exit fee.

Good news for A&M and anybody else in the Nelson sweepstakes, he just signed with Klutch Sports becoming their 1st high school athlete. This means they are going to start shopping him and if people are willing to step up, you can have a seat at the table.

This should get interesting. No doubt that SC has the funds to pay Nelson as much as anyone else.

My NIL guy says that he thinks this means he sticks with USC though. He said Klutch is based in LA and he thinks this just helps USC get the dollars in front of him that he needs to stick. Chad it right, dude is going to get paid.

They have a cool feature I used this year where you can suspend it by the month. Turned mine off after March Madness and just got the notification that it is back online. Saves a lot of $

Fired up for some football, going to get a new big tv for the mobile home at the deer lease. Love that I can cast any game from my phone now and don't have to deal with satellite providers.

I love to watch Big 12 teams, I understand that is changing quick, but it is where most of my buddies went to school, so it makes the games more fun.

Hate to see OU and Texas leave, just like I hated to see the Ags leave, but I certainly understand why they left.

I think it is going to be really hard to coach 19 year old millionaires. I think coaches are going to lose their locker room more often moving forward. Coaches are set in their ways and have not ever had to deal with many of their players making as much as them. Money is a demotivator and a huge distraction, it should not be given in bulk to 19 year olds that are living without parents for the first time and testosterone levels over 1000.

My poor little Bears will try to go back to back as big 12 champs, that would be 4 of the last 9 years, if they can get it done. Our lines and linebackers are as good as anyone in the nation, just have to replace a lot of skill positions.. Time will tell.

Excited to see how Joey does at Tech, he is a great guy, I could see him as a Mack Brown CEO type coach. May take him a couple of years to get the right assistance, but would not bet against him.

Glad Houston is coming back, got a bunch of Coog buddies that I miss talking trash with. Got to give it to them, they are the second best athletic program in the state in reference to sports that matter.

Hope all the kids stay healthy and there are a lot of close games this year.

Glad to hear the University left you some money for options on your football packages
I guess you got your son moved in Ok.

I went with Fubo, only because I coudlnt get the Astros on YouTubeTV. Still get all my local channels and should be able to watch any college football game that I want to.

I think he sticks to USC as well. But……Klutch also represents Kellen Mond.
