DVR’ed the game and tried to watch it last night. It’s the same story different year. As Tejas said, Shaka seems to be a great guy but it’s not working here. 
I haven’t been this down on Horns basketball since the Weltlich days. Showed my age there a bit

Exactly. You’d think he would have caught on and try to change it up by now. Usually when they would press in years past while down 20, they’d have a lot of success.

I still remember during his tenure buying 1 ticket to see 2 games, the men & women teams vs TCU. Even with that, the FEC was almost empty.

Have you seen some of the crowds at the Erwin Center lately?

I met Carlton Cooper in Commerce, TX a few years ago.  He’s certainly on the UT All-Vertical Jump Team.

I just remember Penders’ first season and watching Lance Blanks throw down a huge dunk the first game of the year. I was thinking “this might be fun!”.

I think Weltlich outlawed dunks and threes.

I think 7-2?  
 

John Brownlee was Wetlich’s crowning jewel.  Shared the conference title with him... that’s right Bob Wetlich shared a conference crown (pretty sure). 
 

I’m not defending Bob Wetlich - but he was fired with Lance Blanks and Joey Wright on the bench in street clothes due to transfer rules. Mayes was a junior and also a Wetlich recruit.  BMW were his recruits.  He pleaded for one more year.  
 

Penders lifted us to a new level.  Barnes was the best Longhorn basketball coach in our history.
