HD and BON are reporting that, dispite earlier denials, UT is negotiating with Smart.

Just from a semantics perspective:

 

Strong > Brown

Smart > Barnes

Let's be clear....BON is reporting that HD is reporting that Chip says UT "hopes" to make a deal with Smart.

Nah - you didn't screw anything up. I just don't want anyone to assume there's more going on behind the scenes then there is!

 

No worries!

Negotiations can turn at any moment. If Shaka keeps turning down schools, he won't get another offer or a good one for a long time and maybe the shine will wear off.

after 27 years of the football team being coached by someone with a Mc Mac or Mack in their name Patterson decided to move to bald guys with one syllable last names.

or something like that.

My first thread led to the deaths of thousands of innocents. I was forgiven so I'm sure you will be, too ;)

Steve Patterson is a marketing guru. I'm really looking forward the new campaign on Texas Athletics being "Strong & Smart".

He had a different tweet? If he edited it to say 'hoping' that furthers the point, doesn't it?

so... revisionist bulletin board games ... ( play on 'bulletin board' and 'board game' ) ... Chipster is standby mode on the phone with the guys at 104.9 FM (Buck & Erin) if anything more materializes before 7pm CDT when these two go off the air

In the current age of news where credibility only seems to be gained by those that break news, semantics and wordsmithing are very important. If I say I'm hoping to do something, I'm correct no matter which alternative happens.

 

I'm not saying that's what Chip is doing, but I do know that there are too many reporters that pay close attention to how things are worded.

Bohls was first to report that Smart is presently on his way to Austin. Looks like the deal will be finalized tomorrow, then announced on Friday.
