    • Moderate-High. This would be “I just ate a Carolina Reaper pepper”
    • Connor Williams: The big man did what he had to do in the Putting Up Tape department and proving his health following an early-season knee injury.
      • he gone
    • This one had been in the wind for a bit – advocates of his move to H-back saw what Warren is but failed to see what he thinks he is. He wants to be an I-formation, downhill runner and we’ll see who gives him that shot.
    • While it was a long shot, his embrace of the H-back role could have been a real shot in the arm for an offense that’s now looking at:
    • As your IT IS ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY TO HAVE A TITULAR TE/H-BACK ON THE FIELD AT ALL TIMES options.
    • First Round, Second Round or Other these days
    • while Elliott is a fantastic athlete by Regular Human standards he’s middle of the road for an NFL safety.
    • He’d all but certainly improve his stock with another year under Craig Naivar’s tutelage, but there’s also something to be said for starting that second-contract clock early.
    • Teams would certainly be more likely to risk a Friday pick on him if he turned in a stellar (and clean) 2018 campaign, but he’d certainly be drafted on his physical gifts if he goes this year.
    • but he’s a guy where continued development and refinement could make a 2-3 round difference in draft stock while helping to ensure that he’s a significant part of his new team’s plans rather than a throw-in.
    • He needs to keep building his resume as a tough and versatile dude, and we need him to do it in Burnt Orange next year.
    • it’s tough to build a major case that he needs to do a lot of refinement work on his craft. Can we sell an Aussie on the value of a Longhorn degree prior to a 15-year NFL career? Here’s hoping.
    • But when you follow an offseason of grueling workouts, intense discipline, burned eggs and limp toast (or vice versa) with a 6-6 inaugural campaign where one side of the ball was marked by individual stagnation or regression and mystifying personnel rotations…some guys aren’t going to sign up for a second helping of soggy biscuits.
    • Jake McMillon: McMillon chose to walk with the seniors and won’t be returning for his final season on the 40.
    • Terrell Cuney: He walked with the seniors. Cuney likely wasn’t slated to start in 2018 even with McMillon’s departure, but he’d likely have seen snaps at either guard or center barring terrific injury luck.
    • Alex Anderson: He walked with the seniors after the staff made it clear that they’d rather rub a ball of tinfoil on their dental fillings than give him live-game snaps.
    • let’s just say that if some recruiting isn’t done over the next couple of weeks, the recruiting classes in 2018 and 2019 could total 55+ dudes between them. Cross your fingers that we don’t lose wheat and chaff in equal measure.
    • We’re already light on numbers in this year’s OL class relative to our (massive, gaping) need and there’s nothing solid on any incoming JUCO/grad transfer dudes at this point.
    • Running off a guy who could help you get off the OL Development Crazy Train would have been absurd.
    • I think we ended up losing 5 of the 10 on the 2 deep at one time or another?
    • with Jake. I have first hand personal knowledge that he left of his own accord and was not only encouraged, but entreated to stay. He has his degree and he wanted to get on with the rest of his life. Like Jake Oliver did. No intrigue. Just that simple.

    • This.
       
       It exemplifies the issue that our OC doesn’t seem to see a pattern, he sees a list of players and a list of plays. Personnel, alignment, play calling should all be part of a flow that anticipates what will come, accounts for what has past, and leads your opponent to be disadvantaged because of what he thinks you may/will do or because you have arranged your pieces to do that thing he hoped he wouldn’t have to defend. You know, basic game theory. We seem to wander randomly between using our QB as a battering ram (“extra blocker, whee!”) and calling plays that doom a drive unless they work as drawn up, despite experience’s suggesting that they will not.
       
       I am no D1 OC, but my substitutions and play calling on offense would be an upgrade.
    • They think they are better than Sumlin. History says they are wrong.

    • In Cordray’s corner is the Dodd-Frank Act, the landmark 2010 law that created the CFPB and sets up its own line of succession, stating that the bureau’s deputy shall serve as acting director in the “absence or unavailability of the Director.”
    • “I think Trump will ultimately prevail here, but it’s going to end up in litigation regardless of the opinion the White House is seeking from the Office of Legal Counsel,” Kaplinsky said. “The issue could ultimately end up in the U.S. Supreme Court, but in the meantime who’s running the agency? It will be very unclear who has authority to govern the agency.”
    • Barney Frank, the former chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and an architect of the Dodd-Frank Act, said the 2010 law was deliberately written to prevent the president from naming an interim director.
    • Alexander, the Republican chairman of the Senate HELP Committee, was furious that a top DeVos aide was circumventing a new law aimed at reducing the federal government’s role in K-12 education. He contended that the agency was out of bounds by challenging state officials, for instance, about whether they were setting sufficiently ambitious goals for their students.
    • In basketball to make the shot every time just do a small jump and as you shoot put the wii remote out in front of you, it should be facing you and about 2-3 inches above your eye brows. This method works for me every time. One last thing about basketball is if you pass the ball 2 times before trying to shoot you make the shot easier.

    • Apply motion effects to text, still images, and Smart Objects
    • Make sure that Timeline is selected, which will bring up the video toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
    • Alternatively, head to Window > Workspace > Motion to bring up the entire suite of video controls.
    • Alternatively, for more precise control over the file when it comes to exporting, go to File > New. Select Film & Video from the drop-down menu and change to the appropriate values.
    • nce the new document has been created, import the video file itself by going to Layer > Video Layers > New Video Layer from File.
    • The next thing you may want to do before launching into the edit is to turn the video layer into a Smart Object.
    • Once this has been done, any adjustments you make through filters will be reflected in all frames on that particular layer.
    • Videos can be split by selecting the scissor tool on the Timeline.
    • Photoshop has some common transitions built in, such as fades and crossfades. These can be found in the Timeline toolbar, denoted by the split-square transitions icon.
    • Photoshop lets you add text to videos using the same method as still images
    • First you will want to create a new video group so you can adjust the position of the text and placement over the clip. Do this by selecting the filmstrip icon in the timeline and selecting “New Video Group.”
    • Select the text tool from the side toolbar, place the cursor on the image, and start typing. Photoshop places the text on a new layer so you can move it to the desired place in the timeline.
    • To add a transition to text, simply use the same method outlined above for the video image — just drag the transition over the text layer instead.
