A Pre-Thanksgiving Update


Recommended Posts

We told you we'd keep you updated with the latest going on inside the football offices.  We didn't post anything yesterday, because we honestly didn't feel there was anything worth posting.  The coaching search is dominating our time right now, but we honestly are in a bit of a holding pattern.  I wanted to check in with you guys to wish you a happy Thanksgiving, and give you some tidbits on what we are hearing at this point.

 

 

1. The message that most of our sources are conveying is that this thing doesn't really get started until after Friday's game against TCU.  There's a lot of posturing and guessing going on right now about how things will play out, but that's just part of the process of getting the horse into the gate.  The race begins once Friday's game ends.  

 

2. Despite what is being reported elsewhere we continue to hear that Texas will move on from Charlie Strong win or lose Friday.  Barring a rogue decision by the guys in charge (that would go against everything they've told key people at Texas), Friday will be the finale for the Charlie Strong era.

 

3. We have heard things have slowed with Tom Herman, but it's more from a sense of waiting until things are official before making a push.  As of now we still believe he is a front runner for the job.  

 

4. Remember that these negotiations are largely about perceived leverage for both sides, and a lot of things are leaked in the name of that leverage.  Nobody is willing to show their cards at this point when they really don't have to.  

 

5. We understand that UT Chancellor William McRaven is involved in the search, but we've heard it's from more of an organizational/guidance standpoint than a clear cut "commanding officer" role.  He will definitely have a voice in the decision, but from what we know he doesn't want to be "THE voice".  

 

6. At this point we haven't heard any credible names for backup hires if they do decide to move on from Tom Herman.  Several names have come out, but nothing substantial enough to run with.

 

7. Relax and enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family.  If you're traveling to the game on Friday be safe and support these seniors.  Things will start to speed up this weekend.

Seriously?  Another year what if after K-A-N-S-A-S and the worst record in Texas history?   You have to be kidding.

About the only thing I see that makes Charlie's resume stronger than Herman's is that he has more years as a head coach. And despite that fact, Herman has had as many winning seasons as Charlie has. 

I'm unsure how it i so hard for people to understand The University of Texas is just not going to ever fire a head coach durng the season.

It's appropriate and unfortunately necessary to wait until after the game Friday win or lose. 

I just hope the players show up and do their best for Strong on the field.

Well too bad I gotta work Thanksgiving. Big money day. But I do gotta say this and this has been eating at me for a few minutes, this is a time where we all need to be thankful for great reporters like Mike,Aaron , Harrison which his ass NEEDS a raise from the job well done and a great asset to the Hornsports team, and Daniel. We thank you gentlemen for doing an amazing job and Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone of you.

Hot spot is working, yeah, I have internet!

 

Glad McRaven is involved in organization.  If he can organize Seal teams and the split second timing they require, I believe this coaching search should run smoothly.  It's no wonder Belmont is on lockdown.  What a way to plug the leaks!  I love it.

 

Hook 'em!

Also, this is just an opinion, but misinformation/subterfuge/opsec seems a key part of the way he'd think.

Should be a lot of emotions on the field at DKR for the players and I hope it translates into a victory for the Seniors and for Charlie as I would like him to leave with a victory. I do appreciate the hard work that he put into this program, but I am very excited for the changes that will be made for the program.
