Pretty sure this article was just for fun so I'm not sure why people feel the need to be the voice of reason here. I think the point here, if any, is that there is a high rate of busts among guys that spurn our program - much higher than the number of busts who chose Texas or are simply guys that chose another school over Texas. Given our ridiculously high hit rate on commitments, the fact that Ketch could go by position in a span of about 3-4 years of recruiting classes and find a full roster and nearly a 2 deep is uncanny. I do acknowledge there is some wiggle room for a couple of guys that I'm not sure really spurned Mack - mainly on defense. The QB position alone is worthy of its own article.

I enjoyed the article, much better than the wikipedia entry on the topic.
Geez, some of you self-righteous fools will complain about anything. Don't listen to the haters, Ketch. I enjoyed it. For the complainers, if you don't like the topic, don't read the article.

Seriously? That's what you take away from the complaints?
I love this site to death and think very highly of Ketch, but this site's entire value is predicated on having access to and building relationships with recruits, their families, their coaches, etc. Without those relationships and the trust that exists within them, we get no information. So it's a very dangerous precedent to write something that can so easily be perceived as mean-spirited, whether you in your infinite wisdom perceive it that way or not.
In the short term though, I guess it's no big deal as long as you enjoyed reading it.
And before I get blasted by the tough guys on the board, let me reiterate that I too enjoyed reading it and was laughing hysterically at times. I just won't be surprised if Ketch and company start getting some icy receptions from parents in the future. And I also won't be surprised when many of the same tough guys around here complain about this site getting scooped or recruits only talking to other sites.

I wasn't aware that this was a topic in national media circles. I thought it to be an OB deal only. To me, thats more interesting than the team.

Mack throws a mean curse, but he must have sold his soul to conjure the black magic he droped on OU this season.

This article already making the rounds on some other sites and you guys are getting absolutely blasted (as you should) for writting such an article
Ketch just took a giant dump in the trailer park. Have a laugh watching these guys meltdown by taking it seriously. Sad that some of our own have done the same on this thread. Where's the spirit here? Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?
