  1. The eyes of Texas situation on Saturday has added a new level of dissatisfaction with Herman. As you would expect there were a few folks hesitant to fork out the money to get rid of him but the new thought is “he doesn’t represent the UT brand” it’s beyond X’s and O’s. They were under the impression that the players could choose but they would “choose” to honor the University. One particular, infuriated alum said “it’s time to blow it up. Get rid of his ass and pull every scholarship but Sam’s. If they are going to wear Texas across their chest it needs to mean something to them”. If you thoug

  2. Enough said…ONLY Sam and Buchyvsky (sp), the punter, standing and recognizing “The Eyes of Texas” says it all!!! The Eyes of Texas is our school song and is NOT racist!!! As an alum of the University of Texas, I and others have a voice and say about keeping and respecting “The Eyes of Texas” as our school song. It is NOT just a song to be sung and recognized in support of athletics. It represents the entire University, past, present and future!!! I say that if an athlete, especially on scholarship, at The University of Texas cannot at least stand in silence when “The Eyes of Texas” is playe

  3. Whoever took that 2nd video was sitting pretty close to me! I remember nobody wanting to leave that night and yes, the players were singing The Eyes.

  4. Good ole days. Maybe someone should tell the current players that better players on better teams sang EOT.

  5. Does anyone else see the irony in having a patch on the Longhorn jerseys that says “we are one” with Sam standing out there representing the Longhorn team alone? No matter your opinion of his QB abilities that my friends is a man. If everyone on that team played with his heart and his passion for the University of Texas we would not be 2-2 right now.

  7. Guess I am old and narrow minded but I can not see any thing racist aboutthe Eyes. Does not say I been working on the plantation. Says railroad chineselabor built a lot of that. No Chinese on team. And bottom line much better players than current bunchhave sang Eyes with no problem.

  8. Texas bought the TH that was the bowl coach. What they got was the weekly season coach who was in a conference that was not even close to being nationally competitive. We bought that TH would be that bowl guy with the resources of Texas. He isn’t. talk about buyers remorse. One other thing. I must be slow or mentally handicapped because I have found myself believing that this will be the year we break out for the last 4 years. What the hell is wrong with me. I set myself up for disappointment over and over. My love and passion for all things Longhorn has blinded me from t

  9. Tuesday morning words from Burton at 247. "A picture is worth a thousand words. Sam Ehlinger standing alone among a smattering of coaches and support personnel while the school’s Alma Mater is played at the Cotton Bowl was the final straw. In my correspondence with sources from within the Board of Regents all the way to megadonors who write large checks to complete capital projects currently underway, it is the appearance of sheer dysfunction and disrespect as much as it is the poor play on the field that could very well cost Tom Herman his job."

  11. if urban says yes I think they'd get it done, no way we are that stupid, boosters have deep pockets. you don't move on from Herman unless urban is in the bag.

  12. Why would our 3-star players go to Bama or Clemson? We don't recruit on their level yet. I think that's the problem. The BMDs already made a compromise and doled out their end of the bargain. But they didn't get what they asked for in return. It is amazing . . . outright a miracle that somehow, someway, UT was able to have teams for 100+ years where the players stayed, stood and sang at the end of the game. And now, they just can't? lol, Yeah, I'd be up front about the tradition here and I think that's been the case since both of our great-grandfathers were born. Seeing Sa

  17. Hi first time poster. So forgive the the typos. Many years ago E Smith walked out of Texas Stadium ended a brilliant career and I was convinced that he was the the last Cowboy. Today after watching this game that I Have not missed seeing since the 1976 version and then seeing Sam by himself at the end. Find the picture to see what I mean. .It is possible that Sam is the last Longhorn. I can’t give up on these guys until he no longer steps on the field. He is Texas and he is us. please don’t let the pretenders and the weak take what is ours. Goods ....life

    Hermann needs to go

    Here’s a kick in the head. If you had a month to prepare for a bowl game as an underdog would you pick TH to coach your team? Let that sink in. Now if you had to prepare for a game week to week as the favorite would you want TH to coach your team? Now that it has sunk in do the university, players, fans, and recruiting a favor and get the guy that put a hole in the boat out of the boat and let’s repair it with some Meyers glue.

  21. He also said that Herman sent James Brockermeyer home with an offer of being a walk on. The number one center in the country with a brother whose the number one tackle in the country and he offers a walk on with our great offensive line recruitment. Iowa State on the same day offered James a scholarship.. Herman needs to go!

    Hermann needs to go

    I was thinking about this just yesterday. I liked Strong as a person but he wasnt getting it done as HC but you have to consider Strong had Swoopes at QB and Herman has Sam. Now add the arrogance of Herman into and its settled for me. I want his ass gone but I dont have to write the check

  25. The chance of this team running the table is slim and none. And slim just left town. I will think of future when Tom is gone. Rolling ball of butcher knives a LB back when Horns had a coach.

  26. Little more detail regarding the situation at Baylor. Looks like we may get to stew on our dumpster fire for an extra week. Or...an extra week to transition to an interim coach.

  27. It would seem that either there's a compromise between the donors and the players to stand and sing the Eyes of Texas or we tell recruits before they sign. When we send out a scholarship offer it will say in the fine print that you must stand and sing the Eyes of Texas. Otherwise you can go to Alabama or Clemson.

    At least Strong was not arrogant. Watching game now and looks worse than on Sat. Rerun on satellite.

    The Last Longhorn

    Sam brought us back into the game with his legs. He was clutch late in the 4th and OT. That being said his passes 10+ yards are not very accurate the last 2 games. Its hard to blame him because our OL is pathetic. I

  36. Another offer to a WR? This recruiting class is turning into a sh!t show with all the decommits and misses. Herman needs to run the table or he is a dead man walking. The lack of consistent winning is really hurting recruiting.

  37. Probably right but what if he completely loses the team? like Strong did and loses to Kansas? I don't know if they will lose to Kansas but this team is not playing to their talent at all and so nothing can be discounted. Iowa st, Kansas st, OSU and OU all look considerably stronger than UT...if they lose those 4, they will be 5-5 on the season. I don't see Bijan Robinson staying after this year, or Jake Smith. Herman already cant develop talent that is considerably better than the rest of the big XII, i cant imagine how much worse it would get if his classes dip below top 25. I honestly d
