  1. As a staff, we've stayed away from posting updates and information relative to Tom Herman's future and the "what ifs," should Texas pursue another skipper to lead the program. Primarily because there is a plethora of information out there and fans absorb that information and decide on their own what to believe/not believe. Information is a game of ups and downs and decisions that were made one day can pivot the next week, day, or even hour. Therefore information can be accurate one day and inaccurate the next. All of our friends at the other Texas site are doing a fantastic job of reporting

  2. I don't visit this board that otten, I spend most of my time on IT. Why I'm not sure. I have been lambasted and skinned alive by many posters over there. Even the mods. But IT does provide many interesting articles and a couple of writers that I admire - particularly one called Scipio Tex. But I do have an affinity for this site because the posters seem to lack the arrogance that is prevalent on IT. So it has been my pleasure to divulge what little behind the scenes info I acquire here rather than there. I just hope you folks understand that most of what I here is often infused

  3. Lol! The truth is you are correct. Hiring and firing of coaches is always a delicate and sensitive operation and for good reasons. There are the money aspects, reputations, pasts and futures of people, other coaches and the just plain optics of it. It's true that old codgers like myself who have grown up with people that are connected ti UT, get occasional morsels of interesting info. But we rarely are privy to the meat and potatoes. I will say this as most of you have already ascertained, as far as the admin is concerned the bloom is off the rose regarding Herman., And it is irrepa

  4. Dude, you’re killing me. There is nothing new to report. The parameters of the deal are agreeable to both sides. UM is putting feelers out for staffing in a “what if” scenario. It’s been rumored that he’s meeting with his family possibly in Austin very soon. Now the attention is focused on Herman and how the separation will be handled. He’s known it was coming but they have to work out the details and that is something for both sides attorney’s to figure out. This stuff takes time. Neither UM or The University wants it all broadcast during this stage. Read or listen closely to what th

    Herman got political and failed to develop players. Two reasons to stick a fork in him.

  7. Friends, a poster on another board who has proven to be credible in the past is saying that a verbal agreement was reached this evening. OMG I so hope this is true.

  8. Its been like a funeral for our board members around here for the past year. The spring training that got cancelled. The Spring game as well. Fall camp filled with social justice BS. Then the close encounter of the Lubbotocks kind. Then the TCU slap in the face followed by the OU game and Ehlinger slinging up the Hook'em all by his lonesome . . . . . . . but TODAY, our hoops team wins the Maui Invitational Championship by knocking off ranked North Carolina. Team is undefeated and making noise and deep enough across the board to make a serious run. . . . meanwhile, someone smuggled in box

  10. Folks, I'm beginning to think we're going to need a redo on this election. I know its unheard of but there is no credibility left in the process we're currently conducting. Rampant cheating on a scale that renders the whole thing pointless. Whoever ends up winning, is not our president. They were not elected to the office. This looks very much, and I don't say this lightly, as an attempted coup/takeover.

  11. TFB has certainly changed its tune in the past 24 hours. Now, they've backtracked and their latest update has what Urban Meyer has listed as one demand – COMPLETE CONTROL. This includes the hiring/firing of the following positions: His entire coaching staff (with three year guaranteed contracts) All individuals that work in football support The Assistant Athletic Director that overlooks football Academic support staff Physicians, trainers and physical therapy team Obviously, we are making some real progress here.

    While 2020 has been a really crappy year, there is much to be thankful for. To all my HS friends, Have a GREAT Turkey Day and as they say in Florida, arrive alive.

    It is, however, amusing that Woke Tom Herman thought the real power at UT is as left-leaning as the administration. Yet another tactical error that mirrors his game-planning most weeks.

    Been a really bad year, especially losing my wife. I still have so much to be thankful for though.

  15. It's public knowledge but the straw that broke the camels back was the photo of only Ehlinger standing for the Eyes. Herman had already led the rest of the team to the locker room. Bobby Burton alluded to this on IT, but I have it on good information that the fury by those that count was massive and final. Okay, it will post it - it's over. Don't ask about Urban Myer, you might not like the answer. And, no, I'm not saying he isn't being considered.

    Hermann needs to go

    I’m speculating here: If you still think Tom Herman should be coaching at Texas next year, your reasoning is not based on the football product. Maybe you think it’s unfair or immoral to fire a coach before his contract is up; maybe you like him and feel sorry for him; maybe you loathe Urban Meyer and don’t want to see him in Burnt Orange.... but you really can’t look at this team play and think, “this is exactly what I want.... we’re headed in the right direction!” Can you? I don’t want to hear 8-2 and playing for a conference championship either. I hate to do this, but I will....

  20. Re: Tom Herman IT reporting the loss today is the end of Herman’s tenure at Texas, and the only thing left there is an official announcement. Urban Meyer remains the all-out priority and his duties at Fox end on 12/19.

  21. Bullshit! Herman has been failure before the EOT. He came into this season with piratically a whole new coaching staff. This is Herman being a bad coach it has nothing to do with the EOT. One thing WE ALL can agree on is Herman is a horrible coach. Herman sucks!

  27. As things play out as they will with the Longhorns' top coaching target, there are rumblings at the state house in the Lone Star State. Athletics is manifested on the field, but the ripple effect transcends sports and indubitably makes its way into politics - which is equally important and just as polarizing, depending on which way you lean. Should the Longhorns land their big fish, there will be a collective burnt-orange sigh of relief followed by the popping of champagne corks. State-elected leaders heading to Austin in January for the Legislative Session may have a different reaction.

    The Coaching Conundrum

    Sometimes mistakes are made. The University of Texas should never be a proving ground for coaches. Open the checkbook and get a proven commodity. I believe that is what’s happening right now. Let’s see how this plays out before we begin hand wringing over the details of a contract that few if any have seen yet.

    Heard he was thoroughly vetted, but there was concern he would turn the Gatorade into wine and it would be problematic for the players mid-game.

    The only way $9 mill is accurate is if the current incentive is for $3 mill per year for taking the position. He declined $10 Mill a year and is considering $12 Mill. I sense the two sides are negotiating a few other things on UM’s “list of demands” and we will end up with 4 or 5 staff that he insists on bringing in and the current staff can interview for a position if they choose. Ash will be the DC for certain. When the contract is signed (Within 5 days after the Kansas game) UM will get $12-$13 mill a year in salary plus benefits. Chris Ash will coach the Bowl Game and TH will be unemployed

  34. I've got a buddy who is a high-up in a big time Dallas firm. Alum, season ticket holder, kids go to Texas, pals around with some big money--the whole deal. Very connected. He says he has no idea what's going on. Full Disclosure - I stole that off another site. Just too good to pass up posting it.

  36. Would you like some senseless penalties with that whine? We are overstocked. He has nothing to do to "get ready for the NFL." Unless you're trying to say he's not in shape and should train like it's football season. lol He's doing this to avoid injury. I tend to prefer knowing when I have a player who is focused on himself and not the team. The team was given a schedule to play. They should finish the schedule or just come out and call him a part-time player, part-time team mate. Skipping a bowl game is one thing, but quitting while the season is still going is quite anothe

  39. There are hundreds of people this has happened to. People went to vote and were turned away because they apparently already voted. Hell even service dogs voted in California. California was the pilot for the entire country. It was all a scam. A virus was the reason for the mail in ballots and corruption was the goal. Even if they make voting in person and do away with all mail in ballots it wont matter. Biden intends on giving amnesty to roughly 25 million illegals which vote Democrat. Just like the morons who move to Texas fleeing the cesspool CA and bring their garbage ideology

    If you don’t want to take my word on this then take a little time and see what was happening in the months heading up to Mack’s resignation with the people involved in this power play (pardon the pun). I was told this by a booster who definitely has enough stroke to know what happens behind the scenes. A couple of the more renegade donors had decided they wanted Mack gone so they met with Dodds and told him they wanted a change. Of course Dodds and Mack were good friends and he told them he supported Mack completely and that was out of the question. As you might expect the boosters didn’t l

  41. I’ve said before, it’s like flipping a coin 120,000 times and it comes up heads every time. You would think it would have been more subtle but they could check the “voting machine” and found out Trump was way ahead so subtle went out the door. That’s went they shut everything down and brought ballots in and started marking for just Biden......nothing else on the ticket, just Biden. In a few hours.......bingo now Biden was way ahead and oh no you can’t watch us and we’ll cover up the windows with cardboard so you can’t see us. It’s really hard to believe that this and all the other things (dead
