    Texas A&M postgame thread

    Plenty of Malzahn haters bashing Stidham but no other player that I can recall. I'm not sure any defensive players have been singled out for significant criticism since Holland

    Grading win over Ole Miss

    Good job. I might have given DBs a C+. But the problems were understandable considering starters being out. Definite improvement though from previous week. WDE!!
  3. I've also been disappointed with Moultry's play this year after the rave reviews last year. Aggressiveness and decision making don't seem to be there so far. You may have hit the nail on the head with the root cause Corch. Hopefully that light will come on soon. We really need him.

    We've had some pretty ugly kicks this year .Seems the kid has just lost his confidence. Truth be told most of us probably have too, but not Gus. Unless it's a PAT like kick I think odds might be better at making the 4th down yardage than kicking FG right now. Gus is pretty quick to make a change with punter but not so much with place-kicker for some reason.

    Clemson Grad Transfer QB Kelly Bryant

    Lawrence may have been No. 1 recruit last year but my understanding is that it was debatable a toss-up between Justin Fields and Lawrence.

    First and goal from the 3 yard line

    No push from our OL this year. Our running plays only work when defense guesses wrong.

    Are there solutions with the OL?

    We had some success with passes to Cox who usually powered his way for a first down. That part of offense has all but disappeared. Maybe because CC is our most reliable blocker. Don't know the answer. Last year Nate and Hastings made a lot of mid range receptions. Since they are apparently out of the picture it seems Seth Williams is our No. 1 target for those passes and that's only once or twice a game

    2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    I'm certainly not disappointed in Horton's recruiting this past year. Asa Martin, Shivers, and Joiner is a pretty good haul. They may not turn out as good as we hope but that's on Horton too I guess. Like Coach Grimes and Coach Brown, CTH will probably never get respect he deserves.
  9. Are Hastings and Stove on the same timetable or is one of them a little ahead of the other for returning?
  10. I don't believe Clark's decommittment affects the strength of 2019 class much at all unless it has some effect on Pappoe's committment. Don't know how close they were but have to admit it does make me a little nervous.
  11. Clark seems to be getting more respect from recruiters but is still underrated IMO. Regardless his rating hasn't improved to the point that he can be playing games with our staff or any other staff for that matter. I'm sure he has several other offers but does he have a committable offer from UT?

    Scholarship Numbers (Updated 8/18/17)

    If this puts us at 85 limit I'm guessing last year walk-on recipients of 1-year schollies are being renewed (Will Hastings, Tucker Brown, etc). Can anyone verify that?

    Scholarship Numbers (Updated 8/18/17)

    Are we at the 85 count now or are two or three slots available for deserving walk-ons? I'm probably wrong but I don't believe we've had as much attrition this year.

    JB Grimes- Thoughts?

    My gut feel is our staff hasn't given up on landing Webb. Until that happens there is always a chance. Also don't think they've given up on Morris and he's committed to UT.

    2018 Fall Camp - 8/13/18

    Looks like they've settled on what I have been expecting all along for our starting OL. I know Driscoll is new to our offense but he probably has more starts (and maybe more meaningful snaps) than the rest of our line combined. Our OL is so thin on experience we really need his maturity. Ashley and Trox are the future but I feel better right now with current first team guys.
