6 Prospect
  1. Prospect Meetings, Visits, and workouts

    A danish guy reported that we are one of two teams (the other being the Vikings) that have taken a serious interest in OG Hjalte Froholdt. I'm pretty sure this guy either gets his info from Froholdt himself or someone in the Froholdt family.
  2. Prospect Meetings, Visits, and workouts

    I guess Roberson is a legit prospect for us. He has visited us as well as meeting at the East/West game. Former Top 100 recruit out of HS. Played sparingly at Texas before transferring to Sam Houston State. Finished his senior season with 15 sacks.

    I feel kind of bad for Rashan Gary. Running a 4.58 at 277lbs is rare but Sweat takes all the attention. He has also looked pretty damn fluid in position drills as well, IMO. I have guys higher on my own board for #19, but Gary is climbing. And quickly.
  4. Prospect Meetings, Visits, and workouts

    Texas DL Charles Omenihu has met with us at the Combine.
  5. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    I'm looking to get a masters in Sport Management. There's only a few schools throughout Europe that offers that at the Masters level and none here in Denmark. The schools I've been looking at comes primarily from SportBusiness' rankings of the 40 best Postgraduate programs. I want that extra level of education compared to my competition here in Denmark. I know that a lot of danish sports organisations looks towards the US for inspiration and ideas, so ideally I can get a year or two (maybe more?) of working experience after grad-school. All of the things you mentioned is a big part as to why Austin and UT is so enticing to me. There are so many opportunities. The only thing that Austin doesn't have, that NY and LA does, is a direct flight to Denmark. But that's such a little, and unimportant, thing that I won't let that factor into my decision. It really doesn't matter if it's a 12 hour trip from NY to my home in Denmark, or a 20 hour trip from Austin. Unfortunately I've never been to Austin, so it's a complete unknown to me. That scares me a bit. All of the other schools I'm looking at are located in a city or an area that I've been to before. It gives me some kind of comfort knowing that the city is like. But no doubt I'll come visit Austin if that's where I choose to go and I get accepted in.

    "Do what you want now and get the experience you want. Your masters degree is going to hold value regardless". Thank you! I really mean that. This is one of the best recommendations/suggestions I've come across while seeking help/advice. For some reason I never thought about it like that.
  7. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    Honestly, that sounds awesome! As a Dane, I can relate to free education, lol. Good point regarding school size. Schools in Denmark are generally smaller than those in the US, and all schools I've been attending so far have been rather small (tiny actually) compared to US schools. My local university here in Denmark have about 45K students and I've been around campus a lot, so maybe it wouldn't be such a big difference for me to go to a big state college? The whole thing about leaving my bubble is a big reason why I want to go to the US for grad-school. But I never thought about the religious aspect of school. How much influence does religion have on schools? I know some schools are a bit more religious than others (Notre Dame for instance), but in general? I haven't found anything saying the schools I'm looking at are religious in any way (I looked up Carson-Newman and the first sentence on Wikipedia mentioned it's religious beliefs). Do you have any experience regarding living accommodations? It seems awfully expensive to live at a Dorm on campus? I have a friend who did a semester at P5 school and he told me to find housing outside of campus due to that.
  8. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    Most of the schools I'm looking at are P5 schools, but I'm also looking at a few schools with more prestigious academics (Georgetown, University of San Francisco and Columbia). But those schools are the only non-P5 I'm looking at currently. Part of me wants to go with the best academics as possible, so that my degree holds a value (especially if when I'm going back to Europe to work), but another part of me wants that full college-experience with awesome athletic departments and a lot of fun. I'm a Texas fan and it's something I've been for almost a decade, and they are probably #1 my list. I know a lot about the athletic department, and as far as I can tell, they are a pretty good school, academic wise. Texas seems to be the perfect mix.
  9. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    This is a pretty big step for me, so I'm taking all the help I can. I'm currently in the process of applying to grad school in the US (I'm from Denmark). I know what I'm going to study and I've been narrowing down the list of schools I'm applying to based on who offers that program. I have somewhat of an idea of what I'm looking for, but there's definitely things I've forgot to include. Maybe you guys can help me make a more educated decision? Where did you guys go to school (both undergrad and grad school), and why did you pick that school? What kind of concerns and thoughts influenced your decision the most? Anything you've regretted since? I hope you guys are willing to share your thoughts about your own college experience.
  10. 2019 NFL Draft/College Thread

    For the most part, I agree with this. But I did see a mock a few days ago, that had us taking TJ Hockenson in the 2nd round (without trading up). If Hockenson is there at #51, I would be welcoming of him. I also feel like Cody Ford could be an interesting pick at #20, if the board falls out horrible for us. I think he'll be a very, very good player in the NFL for a long time (might be as a OG though). But outside of those, two scenarios, I won't be a fan of Tackle or TE on the first two days.

    Two player meetings reported so far for this years East/West Shrine Game. CB Jimmy Moreland of James Madison https://jmusports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=14962 OT Ryan Pope of San Diego State https://goaztecs.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5073
  14. Cyprien Out For The Year

    I think Reid's the better safety, but I think Vaccaro's the better overall DB and the better fit for what we, probably, wanted Cyprien to do in our new defense. I'd prefer Vaccaro simply because he got tats.
