And as for the quote, I think that's a bit overboard. How many Oregon players have gone on to become anyone in the NFL? The guy wasn't stacked with talent compared to some of the big dogs yet was still in the mix every year. If he could get that out of role players, imagine what he can do with NFL talent.

He might not but I'll definitely say I'm excited to see what could happen.
Or one could argue that once he has to play a real team he gets beat.....and that he can't develop NFL talent

Very good point.

Not that it necessarily stops Texas, though.

Oregon up until the past 3-4 years or so recruited lower tier guys and coached them up to their system. only recently have they started landing big stud type players and doing it consistently. Dion Jordan being one of them.

they've put out some solid RB's and a couple of nice TE's and DB's.

Texas gets their pick of any top guy in Texas every year. they have most of their class wrapped up by fall practice. they rarely land less than a 4 star player.

Mack Brown had just got too damn comfortable and turned his staff into a country club instead of keeping his foot on the gas and keeping the Texas product elite.

same thing happened to Frank Beamer this year.

SEC vs. the crumbling Big 12. Easy decision. Add in Von Miller, Luke Joeckel, and Damontre Moore as top 5 draft picks...there ya go.

Austin is 3 hours from both Dallas and Houston. College Station is also closer to Dallas and real close to Houston.

There's simply no reason in the world Texas shouldn't be in the top 10, if not the top 5 rankings every single year in football. I'm not sure why Mack Brown hasn't been fired yet.

Hey I agree, while I'm a huge Buff fan seeing them get their asses kicked each time almost made me into a longhorn fan. But they always fold in crunch time.

My daughter went to school in OK, used to hate them also but both OSU and OU have eaten into the wins of UT. Both have outstanding programs built with ltsnof Texas talent.

Football in TX is almost a religion, how Mack is still here is beyond me.

The cap-strapped New York Jets began their anticipated salary dump Tuesday, releasing linebacker Bart Scott and three other veterans.

In other expected moves, the Jets also cut linebacker Calvin Pace, safety Eric Smith and tackle Jason Smith. Just like that, the Jets created $30.7 million in cap relief. It puts them about $5.7 million under the cap.

wonder if bart scott has anything left. I think elway and co. are thinking of sticking with the current group of guys at 'backer though.

Does anyone know when the team is gonna start making cuts? It'll be interesting to see who all gets cut, and how much money is available after. Noticed Moreno, Dj Williams, and Joe mays are all top 7 on the team in salary.
