    A source very close to Bo Davis has confirmed that David is returning to Texas to coach the defensive line on Steve Sarkisian's staff.

    Davis coached defensive tackles at Texas from 2011-13.

    He has been with the Detroit Lions since 2018.

    As a Bama fan, we would take Bo Davis, Tosh, and Derrick Ansley back in a hot minute. I’m not sure even Golding could fuck up with that assistant lineup.

    All great recruiters who can pitch recruits on putting a ton of kids in the league. One thing Owsley didn’t mention about Golding is that he’s not fiery on the sideline, very cerebral.

    Not all Bams would agree with me but IMO we’ve gotten so soft on D since he’s been here. Used to have that alpha / attacking mentality that we don’t presently have. Some guys wave it off the “modern offenses,” but I that’s a clear problem

    DC pecking order per IT:

    Dan Quinn, Zach Arnett, then Golding

    LSU may go after Arnett

    Yep. ND and VaTech threw off Venables a bit by huddling, but Day took it to the next level by huddling plus rushing to the LOS and snapping immediately. The Clemson front 7 was out of sorts all night.

    He was pretty good at Kentucky and Bama, no clue if it was the overall pile of shit in those tenn football offices that caused him to suck there or what

    That was what VT did in it's first half. The part OSU was doing was acting like they were waiting to get the play in when they weren't. That was the part that really caught them off guard. And seemed dumb as fuck that Venables wouldn't have had base plays to put defense in based on formation.

    Quinn is reportedly going to stay in the NFL anyway

    so either Arnett or Golding or it’s just completely under wraps

    It was all encapsulated for me in one 5 minute span last night. We had a couple of hits on Fields, and he is clearly hurting and struggling. Next series, we come out rushing 3 and playing coverage, and quickly give up a TD. He's SO passive.

    Oh without a doubt, Del Conte made him take a firm stand on this topic because the old money wants it done.

    I just wonder if Texas is going to pay $40M to fire the band if they refuse to play it?

    Not gonna lie, didn’t really know anything about the song or controversy, so just looked at the lyrics...is there reason to believe it originated from the concept of Lost Cause outside of what Campbell and Williams said? I saw the song was written well after the Civil War, though that doesn’t really mean anything...the lyrics are vague, but definitely could be interpreted as sketchy given the source of the phrasing.

    the two students who created the lyrics strictly just wanted a school song to match other schools. it was a tuba player and yearbook writer. the tune is from “ive been working on the railroad” so people try and tie them in together.

    i personally don’t care at all if anyone sings the song, and my opinion does not matter at all. just don’t think the song has this big racial backstory that some try to allude to.

    wasn't it written around turn of the century?

    that was basically the prime creation period for Lost Cause mythology

    maybe don't have a song where the key phrase is borrowed from Robert E Lee post civil war and explicitly is telling people to uphold southern traditions, again, literally single digit years post war who a student loved so much he took it for Texas itself

    the idea there aren't racial caste undercurrents to it, which is common for cultures to share publicly, is something I'd be curious to hear arguments for why it doesn't

    lets say beyond the students who were indoctrinated to this phrase maybe didn't understand that undercurrent when they wrote the lyrics, but is very literally the reason these phrases are repeated
