  1. Past hour
  2. In a rare Sunday post, Brainiacs say Princely is trending toward Baylor and away from Texas. Still feels confident in Collins though.
  3. Back in the mid fifties there was an all American RB at TCU named Jim Swink. I remember people would say that, although he was fast, what made him so good was he seemed to be able to run as fast sideways as he could forward. I think about that every time I watch Robinson. His lateral movement is unreal.
  4. RIP Kobe Bryant killed in helicopter crash in Calabasas https://www.yahoo.com/sports/reports-kobe-bryant-killed-in-helicopter-crash-in-calabasas-194537553.html
  5. Today
  6. Who’s next? Orlando, Shawn Watson, Diaz, Greg Davis, Mehringer?
  7. I know these people that figure this stuff out are highly intelligent, but for a coach to be in this long and still owed $10.5M just seems like someone made a mistake somewhere. First thing these long term contracts need to be out the window. I’d rather pay a little more for a coach on a 3 year deal and then after the second year if the program is showing improvement you could add a year with a raise and keep doing like that. Perrine ran in there and extended and should have waited. Reminds me of when they were so excited after Texas beat Nebraska that they practically extended Mackovic in the locker room after the game and were ready to fire him the next year. Teams need to show marked improvement regardless of the sport before throwing more money at a coach. Just my opinion
  8. I don't believe Texas will spend $23M to fire a basketball coach so we are stuck with Smart for at least a couple of more years.
  9. Give Shaka his money and send him on his way. Hire a high school coach, it couldn't get any worse.
  10. Beard isn’t leaving Lubbock for the dumpster fire in Austin anyways.
  11. RE Shaka Smart I was told today that there is no "buy out" in the contract. Its a guaranteed contract. So we would need to pay the remainder of the contract, and the remainder of the assistant's contracts – then spend money on the new coach and staff. If your eye is on Beard, we'd then have to pay his buyout in order to have him, in addition to what was listed above. That's around $20-$23 million spent to have a new coach. Would Texas spend that much on basketball?

  13. Yesterday
  14. Fortunately the practices are more important than the game when it comes to evaluation.
  15. North south game over, NORTH Texas played a big part in north win ATM, Baylor, SMU and TCU players played well South was led by aa South Oregon QB. And by Texas WR who was severly under used.
  16. One more nail in Shaka’s coffin...how many are enough for CDC?
  17. Texas nearly pulled off an improbable comeback Saturday afternoon, overcoming a 16-point second-half deficit to give themselves a chance at a victory against a solid LSU squad. Ultimately, the comeback came up just short, as the Longhorns offense faded down the stretch in a 69-67 loss against the Tigers. The loss drops the Longhorns record to 12-7 overall, a far cry from the 9-1 start Texas had to begin the season. The first 30 minutes of the game featured an offensive clinic by LSU, who was seemingly scoring at will behind big performances by Trendon Watford, Skylar Mays and Javonte Smart. Watford scored a game-high 22 points and also added 6 rebounds along with 3 assists. The Tigers entered halftime with a 42-32 lead and stretched the lead out to 52-36 with a little over 15 minutes remaining in the game. The Longhorns responded with a 16-2 run to pull within 2 points following a layup by Andrew Jones, who led Texas with 20 points off the bench. Shortly after, the Longhorns re-took the lead on a jumper by Jericho Sims to, who had a big second half to finish with 14 points and 7 rebounds. LSU responded though, using clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch to pull away and hand the Longhorns their 3rd straight loss. The Longhorns had an improved offensive showing, shooting 48% from the field, but continued to be trigger-happy from beyond the arc (26 three-point attempts) and only had 6 free throw attempts on the afternoon. Texas will return to Big 12 play on Wednesday when they travel to Fort Worth to face TCU.
  18. My thoughts also. OTOH, CTH may have a little more insight into Fedora's thinking.
  19. Glad we have new OC and DC so schemes will change and Fedora won’t be quite in the know to scheme against us.
