Mike Roach is Awesome

Mike knows as much as anybody in the state of Texas regarding recruiting. I would just encourage them to elaborate a little bit in this less formal setting.

My favorite podcast every week!

I really enjoy this podcast every week! They say that recruiting is the lifeblood of a college football program, and this show consistently delivers the current information. The content is great and delivered in an enjoyable format. The discussions between Mike and Nick are good, I love the Q

Great Podcast!!! Love the Content

I am a big Texas Longhorns fan and I like to follow the recruiting aspect of Texas football. This podcast gives the best insight into Longhorn recruiting. And the best thing about the podcast is that it is FREE!!! Good job, love the podcast.

MAILBAG QUESTION: Where does Texas stand with Tommy and James Brockermeyer with the likes of Clemson, Alabama, and Auburn?
