  1. Not a new member but I will be spending some time here from now on
  2. It happens. I'm not happy, but at same time, it's way too early in the year to be worried about what happens at crunch time
  3. Pitchers gave up four hits in 12 innings and we still can't win. Disappointing.
  4. Merry Christmas to all and truly wish you all the best for 2016. Ain't that far away fellers.
  5. So---if all we're willing to offer is a 2 year deal...then all the "Charlie's been given a blank check" to hire the next guy.....is nothing but pure bull sh**..I suppose the term blank check means one thing to one person and something else to another. But people need to quit using the phrase when they're doing nothing but talking out their ass while trying to spend somebody else's money.
  6. I don't understand the concern about the uncertainty of Charlie Strong's future and how that uncertainty might affect our ability to hire an OC. With the mess we have on our hands at present, I can't imagine than any OC would be willing to take the Texas job without haveing a GUARANTEED 3 year deal. And I strongly suspect that's what we're offering. Therefore, if your new hire has a 3 year contract guaranteed with compensation at 1 mill per year, and Charlie leaves at the end of the next year and the new guy gets fired with him...he walks away with his guaranteed $3 million for one year's
  7. This is not a popularity contest: 1. Coach Stoopid....wins by a substantial margin 2. Briles 3. Patterson 4. Snyder 5. Gundy Let Strong, Holgerson and Kingsbury draw straws for the 6,7 and 8 position.
  8. Hurtt can recruit with the best of them. That's the main reason I want him. I know he got a little over-zealous when working for Charlie in Louisville, but I'm confident that Charlie would be keeping a close eye on him to make certain it didn't happen again.
  9. Happy Birthday!! You are now officially a member of the old timer's club. 52 (and holding) .Cheese said 65. You're a damned good worker for being as old as you are.
  10. Thanks Mark for such a civil response. As you well know (and perhaps you know better than most ...I'm kidding you) .....choice of words when posting can take you down a slippery slope. For example...using words like "always", "100%", "certain", "never' and others that don't come to mind right now...will most always elicit an argumentative response. On the hand, using words like "possible or possibly", "usually", "almost", "occasionally" and "in my opinion"....leave a lot of wiggle room and can nip an argument in the bud.. So....perhaps I was wise in saying "possibly catastrophic". My thou
  11. I think they gave him 3 mill because that's pretty much the going rate for successful coaches these days. In other words, that's what he would be offered by any number of schools that might be interested. Furthermore, even if Texas was interested, a 3 million dollar deal at a highly secure and relatively low pressure job might make him think long and hard about leaving (for a job like Texas). Texas is high reward, but also...very high risk. It's no wonder that Charlie forced Texas into a 25 million guaranty to persuade him to leave the safety of Louisville. The way it's turned out, I got
  12. Charlie knows his $15 mill ain't going nowhere (but in his pocket). And he'll be picking up his checks in Austin for at least one more year. I believe we're going to be pleased with this recruiting class by the time it's finished.
  13. I use Chrome with free version of ad block, and it couldn't be better (or easier).
  14. Congratulations. You have reason to be proud.
  15. I saw this game description yesterday in the Victoria Advocate...where the writer described the contest (volleyball) between Victoria West and Mission Veteran's Memorial. It struck me as funny (and a lot of fun for the students involved) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Though not in the box score, the Veterans Memorial student section of roughly 60 students did its best to make Tuesday feel like a road game for West, hounding the Warriors with quick chants of "you-messed-u
