    SFlonghorngirl reacted to Randolph Duke in Patterson Out   
    I want Tom Jurich, not just for his business skills, but also because he is singularly suited to decide if Charlie Strong should be the head football coach at UT or whether it would be best for one or both parties that he move on to coach elsewhere. Personally, I am tired of all the drama surrounding UT athletics and I think it is time we get back to our versionof normal. I want to get the right people in place to manage the various responsibilities and then get back to the job of adding to the legacy of the various athletics programs. I want UT football to be fun again, I want basketball to become relevant, I want to sit and enjoy a beer at a baseball game and I want to be surprised by the tower being lit orange when the other, less well followed teams, does well.
     
    It is unusual in that we recently replaced the Chancellor of the System, the university president, the athletic director, the head football coach and the head basketball coach. Statistically, one of those hires had to go wrong. It did. It was dealt with effectively. We're still Texas.

    SFLG,
    Last year you and I were among the dreamer's predicting a 10 win season. A dose of reality tastes bad, but I'm still going with eight and four and a bowl win.
    ( Over Arkansas I wish). Eternal optimist.

    The actual betting line is 6, not the 8 that is imagined in the original post. My bet is the team goes 6-6 this season (regular season wins being the substance of the Vegas line). I made it clear that if someone wants to make an o/u of 8 I will take the under.  
    My direct answer to the direct question is I'm not betting a 6 win o/u but I will bet an 8 o/u if someone wants to take the bet and escrow the funds. Anyone who wants to bet the Horns offense under Shawn Watson will pull out 9 wins this season needs to part with his money up front. Im not taking any 9+ bets on credit.

    Can't wait for this game. Who's all going? I'll be there! Got hooked up with free tickets!
     
    I'll consider it a moral victory if we lose by TD or less. Don't want embarrassment on national television.
     
    Hope our secondary's ready for the ND WRs. And traditionally ND develops great TEs, but I'm sure Malik will shut them down. \m/

    SFlonghorngirl reacted to Randolph Duke in Big 12 vs. SEC thread   
    There are changes that have already been put in motion and won't be reversed that will make the difference between UT Austin and TAMU College Station moving forward far greater than most people realize.
     
    With the opening of the med school, the operating budget of UT Austin will make it the second individual system institution with a budget larger than the entire TAMU system (right now the UT Austin operating budget is roughly $2.5 billion, for aggy iis roughly $1.3 billion). Also, the UT Austin non-PUF endowment is almost $10 billion, after the latest $3.1 billion raise. Compare that to the entire TAMU System non-PUF endowment (The TAMU Foundation)which is only $1.5 billion. Regents Rule 80303 grants UT Austin an allocation from the PUF income (the AUF) equal to that of the entire TAMU system.
     
    Add all this together and you have UT Austin (36,000 undergrads, 48,000 total students) with far greater resources than the entire TAMU System which educates almost 140,000 students today and which will be educating almost 160,000 when aggy fully implements Rick Perry's "reforms." Currently UT Austin spends in excess of $40,000/full time student equivalent while for aggy, the number s less than $25,000/FTSE. Add more students and that number goes for aggy continues to decline while the non-PUF endowment of UT Austin that is 6X the size of the entire TAMU system non-PUF endowment continues to drive the number higher at UT Austin.
     
    What Bill Powers did in stunting Rick Perry's "reforms" cannot be forgotten. One of the main reasons aggy had to go to the SEC is so they had new schools to compare themselves to. The difference between UT and aggy is going to expand significantly. The burnt orange shadow they were living in is getting bigger, not smaller. They had to escape.

    Loooooooooooooooooooooong day. Not even home yet. Running errands w/my daughter .
     
    Appt went well. Much better than even expected. 24% reduction on average of all tumors. Only one that has not reduced is main Thyroid tumor but there is significant evidence of necrosis from within. Which is much more important. Than just reduction in size. It means it's dying from within. Sr Subbiah, the dude just couldn't stop smiling. He said he expects the tumor to eventually die. Yes, he said that!
     
    However, that doesn't mean something else doesn't kreep into the picture or the Cancer Mutation morph into something the drug is ineffective on. But for now we're headed in the right direction.
     
    He threw out some more numbers, mainly for my daughter, Jennifer since she hasn't met him or been on any of my Appts.
     
    There are less than 200 Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer diagnosis each year in the USA. Of those only about 30 have the BRAFF Mutation. Only two or three are actually tested and discovered to have the Mutation in order to enter "proper" treatment. In other words, the Clinical Trial Drug that I'm on.
     
    Outstanding!
     
    OK, I just sat down at my laptop to type up a HS update now that I got home.

    I'm a woman of my words. I'd like to eat crow and reluctantly say Juan Grande was right.  Even with a healthy Derrick Rose, my Chicago Bulls play a super boring style of basketball.  Anemic offenses do not equates championship teams.  Defenses elevate during playoffs and if teams are unable to produce points during regular season, they're not scoring during playoffs either.
     
    With that.......Go Warriors!
