Board Meeting: March 26, 2012

3/26/2012

Welcome to your daily Board Meeting. Each evening we’ll update you on the day’s hottest topics on the HornsNation forum.

1. Kabongo making noise: It’s finally some good news for the Texas Longhorns basketball team. The Longhorns narrowly made the NCAA tournament only to get bounced by Cincinnati in their first game. The season’s end left many UT supports wondering what next year’s team might look like since both freshman Myck Kabongo and junior J'Covan Brown were seen as borderline NBA prospects and could have elected to leave. Kabongo has silenced the rumors about his future, for at least a year after announcing today that he’ll be back for his sophomore season. How will this affect Brown’s decision? What might the Longhorns lineup look like next season? Those are just some of the threads in this forum post.

2. Recuits: Broad topic, broad question thrown out from the fans. What five undecided recruits does Texas need to get? It’s tricky when discussing the 2013 class. There are only a few spots left and, don’t forget, Texas has yet to offer any in-state defensive backs. Some of the answers range from the realistic – Maurice Smith, Dontre Wilson, Ra’Shaad Samples -- to maybes like Su’a Cravens and Cole Luke, to wishful thinking like Robert Nkemdiche. Which five do you want?

3. Who wants to talk about QBs?: It started with Sean Adams’ column which talked about how Mack Brown’s personal history could be affecting how he handles the QB situation and if that history is hurting the Longhorns. It’s also interesting when you consider that it seems David Ash is going to be the guy and is growing more confident with the role. We’ll probably know more after the spring game, but also have to wait to see if Connor Brewer is redshirted. If he is, that means Texas probably feels comfortable with Ash and can finally get some separation between its quarterbacks. How do you think Texas is doing with its QB situation?

Remember, the forum is always open. Stop by and add your thoughts to some of these threads or start your own and talk with the HornsNation staff.
