Several more bricks in the wall were laid today. It will take a few years but with BJ and staff working there tail off to build relationships, I can see him putting together classes like Fulmer use to in his prime.

One of the best and most spot on columns John Adams has written in a long time.

Couldn't agree with you more FWBVol ... in shock that Adams wrote this.

I don't want to go into shock so I'll take the word of the above comments and not bother to read the column.

Adams is a smart aleck but he often says things that need to be said. I certainly don't agree with him that often but he has sources I don't and is around media types with better sources than he probably has. UT fans need to get every perspective we can because information is a healthy thing to have -- and the more the better. You can decide what do with the info, which parts you believe and what opinions you will form.

Well said; agree with all.
