  1. For the most part our team doesn’t stay for/stand/sing/put horns up or participate in singing the Eyes of Texas? And the head coach doesn’t enforce the Athletic Director’s directives? Tom Herman should be fired for insubordination if he is guilty. End of story. There is no excuse. If not because of that he should be let go by the end of the season for not developing his players and for fielding a mediocre product over four years. Four years is enough time to see progress. Charlie got three but had losing seasons in each. Now on to Del Conte. He screwed up from the beginning by giving

    Decommitment

    I have decided to decommit from being a Texas fan for the remainder of 2020. A lot of thought was put into this decision, however after the in ability for our coaches to teach basic skills, such as blocking, tackling and not getting penalties I have decided to spend my time elsewhere that is more deserving of my time. please respect my decision

    Lemme get this straight

    I would just remove any Band members that dont want to play it. We can always find more or as @Sirhornsalot mentioned invite HS bands. Employees that pull that crap get fired and replaced. I dont see why students should be treated differently. You dont want to play it then find someone who does. Problem fixed. Any players not wanting to stand for the Eyes, show them the portal. They are not entitled to that scholarship. They can go elsewhere for all I care. I do not want them here at all, yes that means you Overshown and whoever else. I dont care how athletic they are. I would

  4. I wouldn’t say no leaders at Texas. I will say that DiNino was The Alpha. If he said something would happen, he made it happen. No LHB member or group was indispensable, and the aren’t now. During the Royal years, when Royal wouldn’t travel without the Band. The LHB was part of the AD. I know that during the Mack Brown years, the AD once again paid for travel expenses for at least a contingent. The LHB doesn’t sound like they are supporting the team right now. They sound like jerks. Bring on the Alumni Band, and when we make it to a Bowl Game, take them.

  5. Dabo He's likeable, younger, and much "cleaner" than Meyer. But, Dabo is probably next in line at Bama if he wants that job in a couple of years. Only reasons to come to UT are money and "challenge". The off-the-field challenges make the UT job much more difficult than Clemson, Bama, and other universities. The inmates run the asylum here. It's becoming both untenable and unpalatable for many alumni and fans.

  6. The reason DKR got out when he did and why his recruiting began to suffer is that recruiting became more like a "job fair"...or better..."deal or no Deal"..So many players were getting paid that it got hard to no go along. Frank Broyles threw in the towel before Royal. In fact , the story was that when DKR went to Earl Campbells house for his "in home" he asked Earl if he had been offered money. Earl just laughed....of course he had....but then he got real serious and told DKR...."Coach, my people were bought and sold like cattle at one time.... aint nobody buying Earl Campbell!"

  7. 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

  8. The new president has a committee to investigate the history of the Eyes of Texas. I heard the coaches were made to stay. You can flame me all you want but I bet the whole thing is Carrington bitching about having to stay. He been one of the main outspoken one since this started. If he doesn’t like it go work somewhere else. I don’t give a crap. Again we are spending more time on this stuff than getting ready to play football. Texas made a good faith effort with several concessions, but guess what......it’s not good enough. Guess what else.......no matter what they do it won’t be good enough.

  9. Actually, the 2022 class is kicking arse so far. You couldn't ask for a better start to a class. I'm the kind of guy who, once his mind is made up, its very difficult to change it. I decided after OU that it was time for Herman to go. As you all know, I had not mentioned anything about it until that point. Today didn't move the needle for me. The only real significance this game held was that had we lost it, Tom Herman would have been fired within the week. We were supposed to win that game. We should have won that game. A loss would have proven this program was even worse than thoug

    Its the compassionate thing to do. Herman has empathy and cares and loves everyone. We should build bridges not walls. I am sure my sarcasm is showing but just let me know when POS arrogant fraud of HC is fired and BLM activists are gone.

  16. From what I heard this morning from B & E on The Horn, the faculty is at fault here. There seems to be a group of professors that are pushing the racist narrative concerning the "Eyes". Effing libtards. These morons are single handedly destroying this nation's youth.

  19. I don't know Herman so its really hard to say I hate him. I have lost confidence in him as a coach and as the leader of a program the size and magnitude of Texas. Herman is a better recruiter than Charlie was, but that's about all you can say tips the scales in that comparison. You could say Charlie did more with less. His classes were eye candy, but really never addressed true needs because he always started so late in the process. Herman, to his credit, has refined a pretty decent recruiting process and gives it the type of attention it deserves. All that said, we shouldn't be eeki

    Hermann needs to go

    You are absolutely correct on both points. We are better than 2014-2017 which were historically bad for UT. I am also blinded by hate. I hate undisciplined football at the level I coach and even more at the level that UT is supposed to be at. I also hate it when any coach seems unwilling to be accountable when the product and culture they are getting paid handsomely to produce is sub par.

  21. Why punish those in the UT band that want to perform the Eyes of Texas? Call out to the Alumni Band members to make up any deficiencies. Not showing up to the game and not performing the Eyes of Texas only rewards the “woke” members of the student band. Where in the hell is our University President and Board Members? Is Texas truly lacking this much leadership? And yes, those that refuse to play the Eyes of Texas you simply say “Turn in your uniform over there and your hat over here.” “Goodbye”

  23. I posted this in the Herman Needs To Go thread, thought I'd put it here, too. Spoke to a well connected friend today. I called him over a week ago. Today, he calls me back. Go figure. Glad he did. Yes, the BMDs are not only active, but extremely active. There is an obvious #1 choice and that is the primary pursuit. Lining things up. A buyout is no longer an issue. Neither is new salary for new coach, even if its someone like Urban. BMDs feel betrayed by CTH for reasons I've stated here already. Here's an exchange that I at least tried to write down as I was talking to him

  24. Yeah, it's hard to generate enthusiasm for a bunch of spoiled prima donnas who're worried about a song that didn't offend anyone for over a century. But, now it's a problem? Educate yourselves. Or maybe that's the bigger problem with our left-leaning professors?

  26. No, I compare CTH to Tony Romo. He wins just enough to give you hope, then he goes out and brutally kills that hope. And it will be rinse, repeat each year. Make a preliminary deal with Urban, come back and fire CTH, wait until CTH clears the parking lot, then hire Urban officially.

  27. I'm kind of bored today, so I decided to watch a little of the TCU and OU games. Imo, there are 4 things the offense needs to do to be consistent and successful. 1. PLAY Jared Whiley A LOT more. That dude is a player and his blocking is fairly decent. Play him 2. Bijan Robinson needs to touch the ball at least 15-20 times a game. I don't care if he gets the handoff, flares out to the flat, or runs the wheel route. He is so dynamic. Time to take the shackles off of him. 3. They need to run more zone read with Sam keeping the ball more or run more QB power. Bottom line, Sam

    Do you score or not?

    As a former coach, I probably would've instructed them to do the same thing and not score. Why? Because it secured the victory with Baylor being out of timeouts. No way they would lose the game at that point. I don't know if that's exactly what transpired, but that's what I would've done. That's just me though. I did have a step on their throats mentality until the game was already in hand.

    Hermann needs to go

    When comparing the differences in success between Stoops/Riley and Strong/Herman, one of the biggest differences in my opinion is the ADs. Castiglione has been exceptional at supporting the program and helping alleviate some of the external pressures of the OU head coaches. In contrast, Patterson was a train wreck as an AD and is deserving of a significant part of the blame of the past decade of athletic failures at Texas. It is also true that Dodds was likely a big reason why Mack was able to grow and develop into the successful coach he became. Herman was hired before Del Conte so the progra

    I'm not sure I even care much about the rest of this season. I just want it to be over. I want Tom gone and I would like the social justice Horn warriors gone to. The antics of these may have destroyed UT football forever.

    Hermann needs to go

    I agreed that him surviving this for the rest of the season seems impossible. We as fans are looking from the outside in. Unfortunately the decisions are made from the inside out. Generally I don't bring this up because people tend to get irritated if you name drop or share what seems to be insider information. Let me be clear that I am only a fan nothing more or less. Last year I emailed the athletic department about my concerns with TH as the coach and the constant deflections and winning is really really hard crap. I received an email back from the athletic department asking for

  44. Well if you want to go back in history, the majority of slaves sold to the European slave traders were sold by fellow Africans. The tribes would fight each other and the victors would sell the losers. Black people sold black people, I guess boycotting Africa is next? BTW, slavery is and was wrong however it's been going on since the beginning of mankind. In fact, it's still going on in some parts of Africa now. Just goes to show you how greedy people can be.

  45. seeing Sam alone while listening to "the Eyes of Texas" postgame tell me volumes about this team, it breaks my heart, never thought it would ever get to this. I know there are some outspoken former players who have voiced their opinion on the social injustice both in the world and also the perception at UT, but NEVER I mean NEVER would I have expected to see a Texas team captain alone on the field after the game to face the music
