  1. 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!"

  2. 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

  4. 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

  5. And that right there says it all when it comes to SJW's. Lets pick on the one guy that doesn't break tradition. That's the main reason that this movement has so much "support", people are afraid to rock the boat. Hat's off to Ehlinger for showing his school spirit despite cancel culture.

  6. Geeze! There's the big idea! We simply forfeit the rest of the season, blame it all on Covid, and replace CTH yesterday. The ones who don't want to be at Texas can leave.

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

    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

  11. 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.

    I'm sure someone has posted the origin of the EOT, but here it is again. History The song was written in 1903 by John Sinclair. The lyrics were intended to poke fun at University President Colonel Prather. Prather had attended _Washington and Lee College_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_and_Lee_College) , where _Robert E. Lee_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_E._Lee) would frequently tell his students "The eyes of the South are upon you." Prather was known for including in his speeches a similar admonition, "The Eyes of Texas are Upon You," meaning that the state o

  13. 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

    Silver Lining....

    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.

  15. Although it’s not posted in awhile, “Football matters when you are on a football scholarship at Texas.” If staying on the field and participating in your school’s song is distasteful to you, may I kindly suggest finding another school to play football for?

  16. I see 2 scenarios here. Neither of which would shock me. 1. Tom was insubordinate to his boss. 2. The players were insubordinate to their coach. As far as I'm concerned, there has been a total organizational failure from top to bottom. From the President of the university all the way down to the players. No passes for anyone. Well, except for Sam E.

  21. 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.

  22. 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

    They have better developed athletes. Coming out of HS many of our kids are comparable with Alabama and Georgia’s. The issue is they are not much better and in some cases worse than they were as Freshmen. No one can recruit well enough to win on ability it takes development.

    Hermann needs to go

    The only way TH gets fired sooner rather than later will depend on 2 things. The anger level of the BMD’s and the anger level of CDC. The donors are like the fans with regards to the team and the eyes. But after what I have read CDC might be so pissed that Herman has been insubordinate regarding the eyes and creating the crap storm that he might well be willing to cut him loose. It’s pretty crappy of Herman to make CDC be the bad guy so he can be the hero to his players. In TH Monday presser he stuck it in CDC’s face yet again by saying he would encourage his players to participate in the

    Time to repeal it especially if these platforms are going to dictate which speech is allowed and which isnt. They are no longer just a bulletin board for all speech.

  31. A 3% difference between control and case groups and within the margin of error. 71% percent got the virus anyways. Another 14% "often wore masks" end up up positive. The other 15% never wore masks. In other words Masks do not prevent COVID. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/pdfs/mm6936a5-H.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3E3-BiWu5CERowrpnKtuQJAibFzDLWGIg-3Ija_CoKO-k3UH4O-zzT0DI

    Email to CDC. Lost confidence in the head coach by 98% of the fans equals damage to the brand, university, players, and recruiting. The 2% that wants to keep bailing water will go down with the ship as the inevitability of perception becomes the reality of a football program that is dying before our very eyes.

    In the past I worked with several people who had PHDs, from very top notch universities, in their selected field that didn't have a lick of common sense.

  34. Ok, this is the absolute worse thing the AD and administration can do. Either shit on the pot or feed yourself a nice, new helping of Herman stew and be done with it. Living in the in between is only going to make things worse on all fronts (recruiting, team cohesion, and other). Make a decision. Either stick to your guns and back Herman until the end of the year or call it.

  35. I wonder if herman and co. Really study any opponent game film. Seems like the texas staff does not look for any weakness/tendencies that they can expose. I believe they have an offense game plan that they feel will work but its just scripted plays with no real regard to what the opponent is good or bad at. Maybe thats why they subsititute players for different plays that they think are better with certain personnel packages whatever his thinking is has not worked. The whole staff is lacking in game planning. I cant even talk about making adjustments during the game or after halftime..everyth

  40. 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."
