  1. I hate the internet sometimes. It's driven so much by content and conflict. Hamm could have just been cordial and professional but instead wants to take a shot at an up and comer in the Texas HS recruiting game. Recruiting is important but you're suppose to be objective and tell people the truth rather than what they want to hear. I guess that ideal is out the window.
  2. Idk about Baltimore but in DC, I'd go down Embassy Row if you're in a car and see all the embassies which are really cool. Also, I would go to Chinatown and hit up Chinatown Express. Has this Duck Noodles Soup that is awesome. National Cathedral is awesome as well. Honestly, the national mall is daunting enough so anything beyond that is gravy IYAM.
  3. Texas advances to the Regionals, playing BYU in the Sweet Sixteen. BYU stunned the Longhorns in 2014 with an upset in the Final Four eventually losing to Penn State. We'll see how this game unfolds.
  4. Texas had that one bad loss to Iowa State that cost them the Big 12 title. Tough but that's life. The 1st and 2nd Round are going to be easy if the team is focused. Texas gets BYU in the Sweet 16. If they survive that, they may get Kansas. Yikes. Then even if you get passed that, you get Nebraska who whooped you back in August. Then it could be Wisconsin (who Texas lost to as well) or Minnesota. Anything is possible in the NCAA tournament but Final Four might be the peak of this team.
  5. Of course fans do! That's why he puts it in there.
  6. I've seen his kid, he's a pure junkyard dog (or wolf).
  7. Which most journalists have forgotten Journalism 101. Know your source's motivation. This goes for anything. If you have a politician/staff, agent, AD, coach, etc., feeding you anonymous information, why are they doing it? They are typically not doing it out of their own sense of morality. They want to control the message through a neutral 3rd party. However, journalism today is "Get the story out first" because research shows that when you're first, site traffic blows up. You don't have the luxury of waiting until print time to get the story right, 24 hour news and the internet has ruined that mentality. The old tenets of Journalism aren't rewarded by consumers today, so it's all about content and how much buzz you can generate to stay relevant. Herman is the media focus right now, and his agent/Herman himself is soaking it up to get the big paycheck.
  8. That's going to be a major problem this year. Can't get outrebounded and expect to win games.
  9. I was the biggest Strong supporter but there's was always a caveat. BEAT kU!!! (Mizzou hate is strong in me). Great guy, I hope he wins a championship someday but it won't be here.
  10. To be fair, they did get Shaka Smart. That seemed to work out very well. But yeah, 1 out of 5 is still a 20% success rate so not that good.
  11. Shouldn't be up for debate. He should be done. That doesn't mean there won't be fallout. Players will transfer, recruits will de-commit and there will be drama. That comes with the territory. But Texas has to get this hire right. Even if it isn't Herman (which I think some fans are too bullish that Herman is guaranteed to come to UT), if the next coach fails in 3 years, that means Texas spent the entire 2010s mired in mediocrity. Minnesota and Pitt were once powers and after years of mediocre football, they lost their edge and have never gained it back. That could happen to Texas. So it needs to be handled right, and right now the AD has stumbled out of the gate. Too many BMDs have too much power and there is no coherent message from UT athletics.
  12. Might be able to get Harbaugh John Harbaugh to be exact.
  13. Charlie Strong. It makes Economic sense. Not only do you get the $10 million buyout for Strong, you have to buy out the staff (4th 'n 5 says ~10 mil). So call it $20 million right out the door. Plus add $15-20 million for whoever is the next head coach. So at worse, $40 million. Lot of other people's money fans seem to want to spend. Also, it could be a 2014 scenario again. [insert fan's obsession here] or Bust. This time, it's not whether Herman leaves but who he leaves to. LSU is already open but Ed Oregeron is going to be tough to beat out right now for the job. Texas A&M is likely going to make a move as well. Wild Card: Oregon. Oregon might try to convince Chip Kelly to come back but my guess is that won't happen. So where did some of the best players Oregon had come from? Texas. Herman runs a similar system to Oregon when they are successful. So there could be 4 offers for Herman to choose so it's not a lock. If Texas fires Strong, strikes out on Herman, what's next? Les Miles? Will Muschamp? Who could you say would meet the extremely high expectations of Texas in a college football game where the talent is being dispersed all over like it has never been before? These are things that have to be considered. Now that doesn't mean he WON'T be fired, it's just seems more likely than not that Charlie Strong is the coach next year.
  14. Well, let's hope the CFB draft committee does the same thing so he comes back for his senior year.
