    TFloss started another thread for opinions on the current political climate and how they related to UT Football/college football. I disagree with people running you out of here, just please keep your comments related to recruiting. The original post about Gundy was relevant - all the subsequent comments, including my current post, are irrelevant to recruiting. This isn't about race/politics - lets just keep this thread informative and on point. Thanks.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. Political posts should be moved or deleted and not just the ones that respond to such nonsense

    The key there (for Hubbard) is 2,000 yards (last season) -- That gave him all the power to go ‘you know what, this is wrong. I’m pretty solid on this team. I’m going to make it. I’m going to be the starting running back. I’m going to call it as I see it," Simms said on Pro Football Talk. I don’t know what else to say about Coach Gundy. You’re tone-deaf. You’re clueless for wearing that t-shirt. I mean, there is some really radical, crazy things talked about as far as the African American culture, Black Lives Matter, all of those things by this OAN or whatever it is. I’ve come across it, too.

    “The fact that now that I’m reading about the background, it’s very interesting. We should take a long look at that and have a serious conversation about that,” Boyer continued. “Trust me, I’m all about tradition. I love college football tradition. I think it’s really cool the way college football is celebrated. But if any of those things are rooted in an uncomfortable or racist path, we have to fix it. We have to move forward. I’ll take my pride today over tradition any time.”

    UT making sweeping changes to appease blacks

    Alabama doing nothing. This is why University of Texas never wins anything.

    I have mixed feelings. Obviously, I'm not afraid of the past and believe we should always learn from it. However, I'm okay with the changes that were made.

    1. It was the Jamil family that made the suggestion that Texas rename the field after Earl and Ricky. That was big, on their part and lightened the burden, plus I think in doing so it highlights the accomplishments of two men who were huge in making Texas great.

    2. The Eyes is staying, period. I don't care how it got it's start, it's a great song and though some guys created it in a racist way. It in and of itself is not racist and should be celebrated. The song speaks to the fact that all of Texas looks to the University of Texas for leadership and it's a reminder that as they go forth they can make a difference in the world.

    3. I have long held that Julius Whittier was a pioneer in being the first black player to play at Texas. I think this was a long time coming.

    4. There were several other things that the University did of note, but in truth none of them were huge to me except one. They are not giving money to BLM. I would never watch another second of Texas football if they gave money to those Communist and Terrorist.

    As far as I'm concerned this is a positive step and wasn't either side caving to the other side. We can't hide from our past and shouldn't. No one is saying slavery wasn't bad, but we have to understand that we as a country had to grow. We as a society had to grow, celebrate the growth don't try to hide it.

    Not a knock at you but I don't know why people think slavery was the stopping point for the demonic black people go through. Black people were still being lynched well into the 50's. After slavery came: Jim Crow, segregation and housing policies...and other policies put in place to hurt not help. In order to grow we need the dominant society, white people, to not run from the past so quickly. People are still dealing with that trauma and it has to be acknowledged and dealt with before we can move on.

    Anyways, I like that UT listened to its players and made a change for the better. I also am glad BLM didn't get a dime. I think they started on good intentions but you really cant trust and organization with no clear leadership and they've started to focus on other issues I don't necessarily agree with. Give that money to innercity programs like youth football leagues for equipment and fields. After school programs or educational programs for the less fortunate.
