Cut and paste:

Analyzing the Timing of the Coaches' 10th and 20th Losses. 
— Of the eight coaches hired since 1957, their success can be clearly predicted by looking at when each coach had their 10th and 20th losses. If the 10th loss happened in Year 2, the coach was fired within 1-4 years. If the 20th loss came before or during Year 5, the coach was fired within one year. McWilliams and Strong’s 20th losses both came in two of the most infamous defeats in Texas history. All data from TexasSports.com

10th Loss
— Royal and Akers: 10th loss in Year 4.
— Brown: 10th loss in Season 3, next to last game.
— McWilliams, Mackovic, Strong, Herman, and Sarkisian all had their 10th loss in Year 2. 

20th Loss: Year 8 or 9
— Brown, Year 9. Record to that point 84-20. National title in 2005 in that game we all cherish.
— Royal, Year 8. Record 75-20-3. National title in 1963 with major beatdown of Navy. Just missed by a single score on two other undefeated seasons and possible national titles, 1961 and 1964.
— Akers, Year 8. Record 75-20. Missed on two titles after undefeated regular seasons ending ranked #1. Damn that fumbled punt. Yes, Akers and Royal both had 75 wins when they hit 20 losses.
 
20th Loss: Year 3, 4, or 5
— Mackovic, Year 5, Record to that point 32-20-1. Beats Corn for “Roll Left” Big 12 title. Fired the next year for going 4-7, including Rout 66. Going 4-7 with Ricky Williams! 
— McWilliams, Year 4. Record 26-20. The 20th loss was the 46-3 Miami beatdown in the Cotton Bowl. Fired or resigned the next year after going 5-6.
— Strong, Year 3, Record 16-20. The 20th loss was the infamous Kansas game, fired one game later.
— Herman fired at 32-18. (No doubt the 20th loss would have come in Year 5, likely at the State Fair in overtime or with walk off game-winning TD.) 
 
Comparing 20th Loss Records
— Mack, 84-20, Royal and Akers, 75-20
— Mackovic, 36-20, McWilliams 26-20, and Strong, 16-20.
— The data is unmistakable by the 20th loss. Brown, Royal, and Akers had 40-50-60 more wins. 
 
Turnarounds
— Year 1: Royal, Brown, and Akers (see caveat* below)
— No turnaround: McWilliams, Mackovic, Strong, and Herman. 
— Of course, Royal famously did a turnaround on himself after three straight 6-4 seasons. Installed the Wishbone, won 30 straight games, and won two more national titles (and revolutionized college football offenses for 10-15 years).
— Keys to the Akers and Brown turnarounds were installing offenses that featured Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams, enabling them to win Heismans and signal the Texas turnaround. Sark's offense did not feature Bijan and a Heisman chance was lost. 
— *One might say Akers did less of a turnaround than just keeping the Royal machine going (5-5-1 in Royal’s final year, but 10-2 in year prior), until Akers's winning collapsed and he was fired after Year 10. 
 
Beware the Illusory Turnarounds or "Texas is Back" seasons
— The 10-2 “turnaround” season in Year 4. Mackovic in 1995 and McWilliams' “Shock the Nation” in 1990 (went 5-6 the next season and was fired).
— The Big 12 championship with so-so record. Mackovic 8-4 in 1996 and was fired after the next year.
— The big bowl victory: Herman winning Sugar Bowl, with Bevo nearly goring Uga and Sam declaring “We’re Back.” Herman fired two years later.
 
Have at it everyone. I am sure someone is eager to shred this somehow or just disregard it. Or launch some ad hominems.

Instead of the 8 coaches hired since 1957, he should have done the 11 coaches hired since 1937.

He would have found a glaring exception.

Looking back at when I was able to scout Texas' open fall practice, my 3 conclusions:
1) The D is base quarters and they look very good in it
2) Pass pro is way better and Banks is legit
3) Card is pretty far ahead of Ewers in the dropback pass game.https://t.co/1ZmkrJ2NIZ

Also interesting from back then. Card hit TWO post routes for TDs in practice.

Listening to the broadcasters during Texas games, you'd think Ewers was actually meeting expectations, when in reality he's been a severe liability. They have no downfield passing game because he cannot get the ball to Xavier Worthy.

FWIW... Here are Hudson Card's numbers

10+ yds downfield

Comp%: 47%

Catchable: 72%

In a clean pocket

Comp%: 72%

Catchable: 89%

With even average QB play UT is already in the CCG. 
 7 win Stubborn Steve is gonna stick with his boy and sacrifice the team’s and fans chances of winning. 
 Still got a shot at a 10 win, title championship season, but willfully pissing it away without even trying a change. 
 Back to the UT chant, “Next Year”.

Sure, over the past four decades, OU has many more 10-win seasons, Big 12 titles, and Heisman Trophies (VY and Colt were robbed). 

Here's why. The stark difference between Texas and OU since Royal’s golden era: Hiring "the Guy."

The Guy (Great, transformative coach who wins titles)
— Since 1972, OU hired TWO great college coaches (Switzer, Stoops) and one very good coach (Riley, likely to be great). 
— Post-Royal 1976, Texas hired ZERO great college coaches, one very good coach (Brown), and one good coach (Akers). 
Not the Guy (Can't get it done, for whatever reason, no excuses)
— OU had three: Gibbs (5 years), Schnellenberger (1 year), and Blake (3 yrs). Total years: 9 years. (Possibly Venables, too)
— Texas had four: McWilliams (5 years), Mackovic (6 years), Strong (3 years), and Herman (4 years). Total years: 18 years (23 including Mack's last four and Sark's 2021 train wreck). 
 
It’s that simple, yet so complex. OU lucks into Stoops who finds Riley, while UT stumbles along with Strong, Herman, and now Sark. We point all the fingers, BMDs, no real search, blah blah blah. Bottom line: UT made more bad hires who had to be fired. Absurd, but true. 
—It’s that simple, as some of you have stated here. It's hiring the Guy! There is no full-proof "science," to it. No a priori formula. Just assemble evidence, references, and insights as best you can and hope like hell you hire The Right Guy. If not, keep trying.

fyi, it is really interesting when you put JD on ignore, his propensity to post multiple times with no response from anyone is highlighted.

At one point I counted seven in a row, with no intervening response.  I didn’t click, so I have no idea if he was arguing with himself or blowing his horn, but that is the definition of internet clutter.

No doubt that is one of the reason’s that Shaggy banned him after 4 days.  Four days!!!  That is embarrassing. 😳

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

btw, is it true that the Aggys have only won 4 games, including the cream puffs on their schedule?  Guess they will need to hire a national championship winning coach to get out of this mess.

Oh, wait, they already did that! 😂

Hook ‘em!

BevoAbyss joined Surly Horns last Sunday and has posted posted 9 times in the "This is who Steve Sarkisian is" thread and has not posted anything in other thread. 

If I had to guess, that's probably not a coincidence considering your anti-Sark stance.

I would suggest to you that Card will only get mop-up time from here on and then will leave Texas after the season. You can follow him next year on some other team's message boards (hint, hint).

You throw out wild assumptions and pretend they are fact. Everyone else recognizes it as pretending. Pretending is for young children, so we don't join you on that juvenile stuff.

We cannot finish with 10 wins. With a win over Baylor and a bowl win, we can finish with 9. That is slightly better than most had hoped for (8-4) and definitely shows improvement from last year.

Sark is going nowhere and pushing that shtick makes you an even bigger idiot than most here have thought.

Baylor, CCG vs TCU with the help of KState, and. NY6 bowl game are all still on the table. 
 That’s why it matters whether we are stuck with Quinn due to politics, or playing to put up banners in the stadium.
