re: Tulsa scored most points against OU in 2015...Gilbert was Tulsa's OC...video - OrangeBlood
I'm not saying Gilbert wouldn't be a good hire, and I've mentioned this on another thread, but he was the OC in name only there. Philip Montgomery called the plays (was HC, came from being OC at Baylor under Briles). I'm sure Gilbert had input on play scheme etc. but it was Montgomery's show there...

re: Those that have Gilbert in your top 3 for OC - OrangeBlood
[quote]What about looking at his playcalling when he was at Tulsa in 2015? Here is a link to the Tulsa/OU game in early 2015...also includes plays from other games that season. [/quote] I'm almost positive Gilbert did not call plays at Tulsa. I believe it was Philip Montgomery (OC under Briles...

re: Sterlin Gilbert must be highly thought of in coaching circles... - OrangeBlood
[quote]he may have been told to do that[/quote] I'm pretty sure that's right. It was puzzling how they used it incorrectly and then put it away for good (even when circumstances called for it). Never saw it after it was stopped late in the Tech game on 3/4 down. But it was so predictable at th...

re: Sterlin Gilbert must be highly thought of in coaching circles... - OrangeBlood
Gilbert's biggest weakness is play calling. First year doing it and it showed, especially late in games and late in the year once it was clear that the FR QB was injured and couldn't throw a deep ball to keep Ds honest. But he did a great job with the offense this year for the most part. I don'...

re: Racism at UTx (white coaches vs. black coaches) - OrangeBlood
[quote]Clint Hurtt.[/quote] No doubt. He didn't have him specifically, and also, no one like him in his initial staff at Texas. And by "like him" I mean a good recruiter. Chris Vaughn was probably the best (then busted for previous actions at Ole Miss). No one on the offensive side of the bal...

re: Racism at UTx (white coaches vs. black coaches) - OrangeBlood
[quote]Here is what I don't get. Strong is a good coach. He was an excellent DC at Florida and very good at Louisville as a head coach. Texas has been a dumpster fire since they lost to Bama in the BCS championship game. Could the problem be more Texas than the Head Coach of Texas? [/quote] I've...

re: Art Briles Offense - OrangeBlood
It's a great offense that is predicated on smash mouth up-the-gut running. Hence the "veer" part of "veer and shoot." Baylor has run the ball quite well - and part of the reason is that the defense has to account for both dimensions of the field with the threat of the passing game - vertical and h...

[quote]Oh good lord Texas did lose to both of them this season didn't they? has that happened before? [/quote] Not that I'm aware of - granted, Texas has very little history against either but I'm almost positive KState is the only Big12 school that Texas has a losing record against....

re: Yes Art Briles at LSU - OrangeBlood
[quote]And what's the rest of the story. No one knows. Maybe the AD said don't worry about it I'll take care of it. Belies says ok and goes about his business thinking that the AD would report it. It does seem slimy. But if Briles truly covered it up he would have been arrested.[/quote] Whoev...

re: Sterlin Gilbert and Baby Briles - OrangeBlood
Gilbert was very mediocre as a play caller this year - Texas had good offensive production because of an above average OL against crappy Big12 DLs and a great RB. This was his first year ever as a play caller and it shows. Kendall Briles may likely get a hard look by the NCAA over the KD Cannon ...

re: Anyone think Charlie Strong would coach our LB's? - OrangeBlood
If you watched our LBs this year, you would not want whoever was coaching them to coach the LSU backers. Worst unit on the defense. Brian Jean-Mary was the LB coach and came from Louisville with Strong. Run fits were terrible, took on blocks with the wrong shoulder (if taken on at all), etc. et...

[quote]Really? So is Strong looking to be retained or is Herman just tired of playing the waiting game?[/quote] No clue really. I'm not a gambler but they previously had extraordinarily high odds of Herman to Texas. Much higher than what they had in 2013 for Strong to Texas (I think they had hi...

re: "why does no one ever mention Chip Kelly or Chris Peterson?" - OrangeBlood
[quote]Chris Peters[b]e[/b]n[/quote] There's reliable info that Texas has reached out to him this year a couple times and he's said no each time. We did the same thing with Shaw in 2013 prior to hiring Strong. Truth be told, Shaw was the first choice of the only person who mattered in that de...
