Plane leaves Fort Worth at 7:06. Lands in Austin at 7:36.

 

Whoever goes out to the airport, look for a Cessna Citation Excel (twin jet). Oh, and look for a curly headed guy getting off the plane.

There's also a chance that he is on the Learjet 60 that left Fort Worth at 4:19 and is landing in Austin at 4:53.

TCU countered with their own offer. Money isn't as good as Texas and Meacham would still call plays.

 

Stil, caused a delay. Still expect this to happen.

Makes sense. Wanted to give TCU a chance to counter with their best offer then go from there. I think if we see any movement on the Gilbert front the writing will be on the wall.

A poster on another site said that a friend of his overheard a conversation today between somebody and Cumbie that, while he didn't actually say it, made it sound like Cumbie was turning down the Texas job. This was while he was out recruiting for TCU.

 

  1. He has an offer from UT on the table
  2. Visits Austin yesterday
  3. Meets with GP and TCU admin for a counter offer
  4. Goes out recruiting for TCU later

Doesnt look promising.

You'd think a "No" would have been announced already then....

True.  Maybe he just likes watching everyone sweat it out.

 

It is weird if he is seriously considering taking the job why he is out recruiting for TCU.  Isnt that a conflict of interest?

Per Jeremy Clark TCU 247 site

 

 

Cumbie did meet with Patterson but meeting was not about making a decision but more about updating Patterson. Cumbie was out recruiting today. NO decision as of 15 minutes ago. Cumbie is not going to Austin tonight even though Horns 247 said there is a flight going there

The College Football Media is watching this story close. No way he's out recruiting and the media doesn't know.

 

Hard for me to bite on that one

 

So the recruiting today is just a rumor or actually witnessed?

If he is out recruiting forTCU and then takes the Texas job he was essentially lying to every recruit today.

Watson was out recruiting for us last week when he, we, and everyone else knows he's gone. If s recruit directly asks Cumbie I'm sure he'll tell the kid he's still deciding - and then sell the university. Coaches come and go.
