Originally posted by Q6: I disagree Ketchum. Kids who don't have a clue at 16 or 17 for whatever reason and choose something else given they are not completely informed. And we dwell on their mistakes? I bet everyone of those kids wish their lives turned out differently. I'm sure every one of them wishes they went to Texas instead. But to publish these kids problems later in life is low in my opinion. How about publishing all the Texas kids who came here and didn't make it? Where are they? I think you should stick with positives and not negatives.
Their stories are part of history and they'll be talked about for decades, just like those came before them.
Guys like Mohetau and Bomar are important footnotes in the history of the program when you look at where Mack Brown has taken the program.
I also don't think this is anything that isn't already discussed in the main stream. There have been newspaper columns about it in recent years.
Why is bomar an important footnote? or Perriloux? They didn't come here and we have been fine. They are just kids who made decisions like kids do with awful advice from whomever their advisors were. Is it part of the story to follow their downfall from not accepting a Texas offer? We probably get more offers accepted as a % than any school in the country. The actual curse is the 5 star players in HS around the country that don't pan out in college football. Life happens.
