  1. Texas should immediately kill the Thanksgiving night game. The TCU/Tech fanbases have never played in these games and they have no idea how to deal with it. Texas fans don't care as much because the matchup isn't sexy. Most importantly, the NFL has completely taken over Thanksgiving from 11:30am - 10:00pm. It's not worth the trouble.
  2. Oh believe me I know. I don't remember which game it was last year in Omaha but a pitcher left a hanger right over the plate, and the guy just crushes the ball. In Rosenblatt that thing would have been top row of the bleachers. Instead the LF comes in like 5 steps to catch it. At Reckling last weekend it was funny to notice how every ball hit off of one of those bats sounds like a broken wood bat on contact. It was a good idea to tone it down a little but they went soooo far overboard.
  3. Taking a look at the profiles of the 16 teams left in the Supers...here's my ranking from Most Likely to Least Likely to win it all in Omaha. FAVORITES: 1. TCU - Interesting to see if the long innings last weekend come back to haunt, but I think this team has the best overall profile of the remaining teams, now that all those national seeds have already exited the dance. The best ERA in college baseball in 2014 (Team ERA of 2.14). This is the one team I would absolutely not want to face right now. 2. Virginia - They blew it in the Supers last year as a national seed. They've also got
  4. Yeah you can PayPal or mail a check, either way. Send me a private message and I will give you the details. I will pick up the first round at a future hornsports happy hour if I win first place
  5. We're running our 16th annual tournament pool on ESPN's Tournament Challenge this year. http://games.espn.go.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/2014/en/game group name: Onions! password: texas $20 to join, payout is 75% to 1st 19% to 2nd 5% to 3rd 1% (and a year of humiliation) to dead last Usually we have around 30 people signed up so if you're interested and want some bragging rights on hornsports, sign up and play.
  6. I hate to disappoint you but football is not the most important venture on the 40.
  7. I heard that Mack violates the Austin ban on plastic grocery bags. What a savage.
  8. Getting warmer, I think. Lesson learned to all. You don't go papering terms with the new coach until you've already bought out the old contract. An embarrassing blunder by the Get Saban camp, and something that made me very uneasy when the word contract started getting tossed about.
  9. JJ threats carry a lot more water than Mack going public with anything. JJ threatening to block the Saban hire is certainly possible. But that blows apart the notion that a unified effort was underway to get Saban. When a guy whose name is on the field is still standing in the way, then this was never really as close to happening as we think.
  10. And Saban would say, as he has actually said before in 2012, that teams come after him all the time and he has no idea what communications or inquiries come to his agent. Plausible deniability. This idea is ludicrous.
  11. No. Removing Powers opens up Texas to the shithead brigade led by Perry and causes far more problems for the University itself, problems more important than the football program.
  12. So Mack Brown threatened to go public with information that Chip Brown and others have already made public months ago? How does that make any sense? Think this through. What damage would that really have done, other than to make Mack look like a crazy out of touch old coach, and only validate the actions being taken to remove him? Either Mack was bluffing and our guys are the worst poker players ever, or more pieces are still missing?
  13. Lead Texas on, keep mouth shut, secure an extra 2mil a year, then deny everything. Perfectly played.
  14. This. I simply cannot believe that the effort to get Saban was a uniform, unanimously supported decision and that one man stopped it (Mack). That's an extremely simple and convenient explanation for an exceedingly complex situation.
  15. For Christ's sake stop taking these ESPN leaks at face value. That statement, if you take the time to think about it, supports everything stated in the OP
