    DBut82 reacted to utparothed in The Coaching Conundrum   
    After a day of speculation about whether or not we're getting the coach we want and insiders giving conflicting information I've decided that I'm not going to waste my time one anyone else's opinion/info, I'm going straight to the source to get the answer I need...

    As a staff, we've stayed away from posting updates and information relative to Tom Herman's future and the "what ifs," should Texas pursue another skipper to lead the program.  Primarily because there is a plethora of information out there and fans absorb that information and decide on their own what to believe/not believe.  Information is a game of ups and downs and decisions that were made one day can pivot the next week, day, or even hour. Therefore information can be accurate one day and inaccurate the next.  All of our friends at the other Texas site are doing a fantastic job of reporting what they are hearing from their contacts.  Not to mention, there's no job opening to fill right now.
    We've heard some really good nuggets over the last few weeks that we've held onto, primarily because we felt it was premature in the reality of a potential change.  And information changes, like we said, on the flip of a coin.  Our sources have mentioned significant financial numbers tied to securing their prize...  numbers that would be "firsts" in the realm of college football.   
    Depending on your preference for a change and for who that change brings to the 40 Acres, today we heard some positive news.  Should the Longhorns be in the market for a change at the head coaching position, it appears that their prime candidate has been presented with a sweetheart deal and Longhorn fans will be very happy with the candidate's decision.  With that being said, timing is key as we saw during the waning days of the Mack Brown era.... Nothing has been formalized yet and until it is, nothing is final.  Things can turn in a split-second if things aren't handled timely, with precision and extreme care. 
    The Longhorns have two games remaining and the "timely" component is critical - especially as it pertains to recruiting.  National Signing Day is two weeks away and the Longhorns have suffered decommitment after decommitment over the last month and a half. However, should things progress as expected, the 2021 recruiting class for the Longhorns could benefit immensely if the timing works in their favor.

    You guys must not know but he’s a Saban disciple and a good man there’s many stories of him going the extra mile in Dallas and I think he would be a dynamite recruiter and a great developer of talent. I’m a huge believer that he’d kill it in college you can laugh but if given the opportunity I think he’d flourish. He’s old school and he’s honestly a perfect Texas coach because he knows how to play the politics game

    It would depend if they like living in Columbus and working for Ryan Day. Austin is nice and hopefully, they are more loyal to Urban.

    If you don’t want to take my word on this then take a little time and see what was happening in the months heading up to Mack’s resignation with the people involved in this power play (pardon the pun). I was told this by a booster who definitely has enough stroke to know what happens behind the scenes. 
    A couple of the more renegade donors had decided they wanted Mack gone so they met with Dodds and told him they wanted a change. Of course Dodds and Mack were good friends and he told them he supported Mack completely and that was out of the question. As you might expect the boosters didn’t like being told no so they decided if Dodds wouldn’t play along then it was time for a new AD. Next they set a meeting with Bill Powers (UT President at the time) and told him they wanted Mack gone and Dodds won’t do it so they wanted Dodds moved out. As you might expect Power’s didn’t appreciate them telling him who to hire or fire so he refused as well. He basically told them he didn’t work for them and as the President he made those decisions based on what was best for the University not by pressure from Alumni. The boosters were not happy with Powers response but instead of taking no for an answer they decided it was time for a new President or at least someone to push him to “play along”. This is the tricky part because the President doesn’t have a direct supervisor he answers to the Board of Regents so in order for him to be convinced or dismissed they would need enough Regents to agree. That would take a massive amount of time and convincing so they decided it would be more efficient to have a couple of new Regents that represented their agenda. They decided a meeting with Governor Perry was needed. They made an appointment and explained to him the whole story and what the needed. During this meeting they gave him two options. He could appoint a few regents that they wanted and they would generously give to his campaign fund or he could choose not to make the appointments and they would contribute enough money to whoever his next opponent was to ensure they won. Unlike the other folks these guys approached Slick Rick was a die hard politician and really enjoyed his position. He also had higher aspirations and knew these were the kind of people he needed on his side so he agreed to help. Perry was never a big fan of Bill Powers but he really turned up the heat in the early part of 2013. He basically told him to get on board, resign or be fired. The soured relationship between Perry and Powers was well documented in the press. The reason for the sudden urgency however was not made public. With the increased pressure being applied Powers told Dodds  it was probably time to move on because he would not be able to protect him much longer. In October Dodds made the announcement he would be resigning as the AD. Mack knowing what was next followed suit and retired in December. Powers bought himself a couple of years but probably didn’t enjoy them. 
     
    Do not underestimate what the UT  big money donors, or any billionaire for that matter, are capable of doing once they set their mind on something

    The Saban fiasco had nothing to do with the boosters, they did act in their own interest but the table was set and Saban was on board. Mack derailed the hire. Saban and Mack are friends or at least have respect for each other. Saban would not take the job until Mack resigned. Mack knew the plan and he refused to resign. Saban had a new contract offer from Bama but hadn’t signed off yet. He stayed out of the office “recruiting” to give the Texas situation time to play out. Once he realized Mack wasn’t going to resign and he couldn’t put Bama off any longer he signed the new contract. He signed on December 13, 2013 and on December 14, 2013 Mack announced he was resigning. Mack was understandably pissed at the way it was all handled but end the end he got a little retribution at the expense of the program. The better story is what the boosters went through just to get Mack at the point of resignation but that’s a discussion for another time.

    It wasn't Saban's agent that kept Saban from coming to UT. It was Mack Brown.

    I’ve been getting better results with a water pan with fat side up and I definitely wrap with butcher paper. 
    Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get any good pictures since everyone was ready to eat but this is all I was able to manage:

    Looks amazing!  Do you use a water pan for your brisket?  Also, do you fat side up or down?  The best results I've had regarding brisket is no water pan and fat side down.  I've done some pretty amazing cooks but can honestly say I haven't had one jiggle quite like that.  Also, did you wrap or let it ride?  I tend to wrap in butcher paper when it hits the stall.
    I own a BGE (large) btw...
    And I agree with @J.B. TexasEx, we gotta see the ring bro! LOL!
