  1. Sark was on the Dan Patrick show this morning and he was asked out how difficult it’s going to be to out recruit Nick Saban, his response was, “I hope to still be here 15 years from now and people will be asking how do you out recruit Steve Sarkisian?”

    Some sad news tonight

    I know some of us here are/have been posters on other sites over the years. One of our close friends, @JimsTexas, passed away this morning, peacefully in his sleep. His son called me tonight with the news. Jim had some health issues, but still was able to go out and fish and faithfully followed the Longhorns, never wavering in his support regardless of recruiting classes, coaches or W/L record. I've personally known him for years and spoke with him on Monday night. I'm happy to call him a friend, spelling mistakes and all. If you're the praying type, please keep his wife, son and gr

  3. 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

  4. quit making excuses for them would be a good start. I have three separate lines of Cherokee and I dont hold ANYONE today responsible for the Trail of Tears, of which two of my Cherokee lineages were forced to participate. The Irish were treated horrendously as well. Every race and every culture has had slavery and victims of it. Name ONE player at Texas that isnt at an advantage over 90% of peers in the state of Texas. You may find a couple or three exceptions but for the most part, these players are self-important, entitled, brats screaming for attention (as are players in other prog

    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

  7. Disclaimer: I have no idea how good a coach Pete Golding is. But as I've followed all of this stuff over the past week or so, I get the impression that there are not all that many assistant coaches out there that a team's fanbase doesn't hate. When Bama's defense plays well, it's due to Saban. When it plays bad, that's on Golding. Typical fans, lol.

  9. 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

  10. 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

    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

  12. View from the Cheap Seats-Mad Miners of UTEP Could not have scripted it better. In a year where we have been deprived of sports, spring football etc, the 2020 college football season is finally here and with it a degree, of a return to normalcy. Coach Tom clearly has done a good job getting the team ready for the opener and TEXAS dominated an outmatched UTEP team of mad minors (miners?) from start to finish. On a day when the BigXII teams SERIOUSLY stubbed their toes, TEXAS, OU and WVU represented well against each’s respective tomato cans. ISU Kan

  13. @hornsups What’s to prevent other players from doing the same or leaving?? It better mean more than a UT education and a football career. Missing a season is a big risk and not many would want to do that, IMO. Make hay while the sun shines, as they say. Besides, its the rules. On the other hand, I think Overshown has a great point to make. There was talk. But there hasn't been results or communication regarding the issue. Thats on CDC and UT. I see nothing wrong with renaming some buildings, removing some statues and whatnot. They could at least get that moving. It’s

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

  18. Wanted to take a moment from the hand wringing over CUM's decision to break TEXAS fans hearts and remember the attack on Pearl Harbor, on this day 79 years ago. Also, while the movie Pearl Harbor sucked, the scenes from the attack were outstanding and captured well the events of that morning. Also, while we all know about the USS Arizona, I only learned the story of the USS Nevada while steaming out of Pearl Harbor as we deployed to WESTPAC. A great story. On the morning of Dec 7th, the USS Nevada was moored to the northern most spot along

  19. 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

  21. 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.

  22. "The Eyes of Texas are upon you..." Yes, they are, and when you run off the field and show disrespect for your school, what have you accomplished? The school song is only racist if you imagine it is. Racism is real and it's bad, but the school song is not a good example. Creating a problem when there is no problem is utter foolishness. Choose your battles wisely, young men, so you don't do damage to the very cause you're fighting for.

  26. I think LSU is not where an aspiring coach wants to go right now, at least not until O shows he has staying power. Not sure he can do it. My Dad used to say that a person can let adversity beat them or make them stronger. After watching Sark’s press conference, I think he put a lot of effort into making himself stronger.

  29. View from the Cheap Seats-Buffs return to Texas Game review and season/off season wrap up. One of the things bowl games bring is hope for the following season. It is a game where younger players who have often not gotten much playing time, get a chance to shine while giving the fans a glimpse of things to come. This year’s Alamo Bowl game certainly gave TEXAS fans what they hope is a vision for the future though sadly, TEXAS has failed to deliver on that tease for 3 years in a row. While not the “signature win” of the Sugar Bowl beat down of the Dawgs, this was easily

  31. IF we get to play Kansas, I would only play Ehlinger for a quarter, maybe a little more. Then put in Casey Thompson and let him go for 2nd and 3rd quarters. Then let either JQ or Card in for some time in the 4th. These QBs need some PT.

  34. 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....

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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

  39. 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.

  40. I'm sitting at the beach now relaxing and letting the stress wash away from me. Maybe its the Hawaii beach talking, but I'm going to try a different approach than i normally would. This team has a lot of work to do, but i would rather learn that after a win than a loss. They got a conference win on the road and learned a lot about themselves in the process. One thing they learned (hopefully) is they're not as great as maybe they thought they were and cant take anyone for granted. Again, they learned this in a win. They also learned (or at least I did) that this team has heart and

    I agree that Black Lives Matter, but in a larger context, who will disagree with me when I say that All Lives Matter? Because I am not black, but a different race, does my life matter less? Marquez’s letter was very well written; however, the ideas sound like those of a collective group that simply threw every idea out, and he included all on the list. I realize that our athletes sacrifice much for our team, but gentlemen, compared to Earl Campbell, Tommy Nobis, Vince Young, James Saxton, Jimmy Street, Bob McKay, Ricky Williams, Bobby Layne, the 1969 National Championship Team, th

Anyway, a couple of the boys had some interesting news about the new coaches. They're excited about them. Says they take no shit and allow no shit from the players. And they are COACHING! And they will tell Herman when he is wrong nd when to shut the F up and let them handle it.
