  1. Texas nor OU will play a lame duck schedule next year. If necessary (and a usual reliable source has told me it won't be necessary) they both will bite the bullet and pay the penalties. Sadly, we will watch the Big 12 this year for the last time. At least as we know it.
  2. Hey, everyone. I have a couple of predictions. We will go 11-1 (OU will be the loss, but we will beat them in the championship game). I don't know why everyone is concerned about the first two games. This Longhorn team is loaded with a Heisman running back and NFL talent scattered all over the roster. We will beat the ever loving crap out of Lala and Arky both. The next prediction is we will be playing in the SEC next year. Trust me on this. In two years UT will be the second best team in the SEC and OU will be the third. aggy has some serious talent, but they are aggy and they always will be. When UT enters into the NIL competition we will be merciless and start stacking talent like it is cordwood. There - how is that for drinking the koolaide?
  3. Got it. Well, that is two of us. But it doesn't look good.
  4. This sounds logical but it is not correct. He flipped because of the UT coaching conundrum and some real effective negative recruiting. Most of which came from the NFL.
  5. Zoom! That went over my head. How does that relate exactly?
  6. Just jumped on the board. How is everyone doing? We all in on Sark? Here is a tidbit for whatever it's worth. Sark and Ewers were in an hour long Facetime. Don't get excited yet - I've also heard that Ewers is solidly an Ohio State Buckeye. Solidly.
  7. Although Herman will think he is coaching for his job and excels in bowl games, Colorado will win 48-42.
  8. Outstanding. At some point I need to pull you out to my farm in Brenham and let you and my wife converse. She will probably want to adopt you. (and, by-the-way, canker fungus really sounds nasty)
  9. I've got two spiral cut cedar tress in my front yard garden in Katy. Both appear to be dying and Google says it could be a fungus of which there is no cure. You familiar with this malaise?
  10. OT and I may have already posted this, but your comment reminded what I once heard. Regarding the state lottery he said you had a better chance of getting hit by a wheel that fell off an airplane then winning it.
  11. You would be right. I worded it wrong. I should have said from his agent's camp. Generally when their boy is being discussed is when they maneuver for favorable leverage ($). It is the internet age and it always happens. Always.
  12. I will just say there are others, but have you heard anything from Myer's camp? Get my point? Lots of water needs to flow under that bridge, yet.
  13. Basically, it is a cadre of posters that always attends the mods little drinking fests in order to kiss their behinds and gossip about other posters. I attended one once, incognito of course, just to what was going on. No way in hell would I reveal who I really was even though I learned that one of the lawyer posters had tried mightily to dox me and my family. That being said there are some really good people that are members and a big bunch of them are still in the military. I like the military folks, they don't suffer fools very well.
  14. It's public knowledge but the straw that broke the camels back was the photo of only Ehlinger standing for the Eyes. Herman had already led the rest of the team to the locker room. Bobby Burton alluded to this on IT, but I have it on good information that the fury by those that count was massive and final. Okay, it will post it - it's over. Don't ask about Urban Myer, you might not like the answer. And, no, I'm not saying he isn't being considered.
  15. I don't visit this board that otten, I spend most of my time on IT. Why I'm not sure. I have been lambasted and skinned alive by many posters over there. Even the mods. But IT does provide many interesting articles and a couple of writers that I admire - particularly one called Scipio Tex. But I do have an affinity for this site because the posters seem to lack the arrogance that is prevalent on IT. So it has been my pleasure to divulge what little behind the scenes info I acquire here rather than there. I just hope you folks understand that most of what I here is often infused with the opinions of those giving me the info. It's the nature of us humans.
  16. Lol! The truth is you are correct. Hiring and firing of coaches is always a delicate and sensitive operation and for good reasons. There are the money aspects, reputations, pasts and futures of people, other coaches and the just plain optics of it. It's true that old codgers like myself who have grown up with people that are connected ti UT, get occasional morsels of interesting info. But we rarely are privy to the meat and potatoes. I will say this as most of you have already ascertained, as far as the admin is concerned the bloom is off the rose regarding Herman., And it is irrepairable. I believe things are going to happen. We'll see.
  17. Got it. So, in your opinion, the only way a school can be judged as "premier" is by how games it wins. So by your definition, aggy is a 3rd tier school and always will be. They are simply in the same tier as Tulane. No matter how much of the farm they give away to hire a has been coach.
  18. That's a strange reaction to my post. Almost aggy like. Bragging? Athletic highlight? Just the salary? If I have to explain the whys to a so called "aUTfan", then you ain't one.
  19. Ha, ha! The bet was not my house against yours is was simply you putting up your house that he wasn't coming. That being said, and I shouldn't even hint at this, you never know in the coaching ranks what could happen. And you are right about UT in todays environment. By-the-way, I will relate a little about the mercenary Brocks. I heard they just didn't like hand and they thought they had a better chance at rings at Bama. Although the league was a consideration, they felt confident enough to believe they could get there at any school. And, finally, their treasonous dad had much to do with this as well. Anyhow, that's the "rumor". All of us should be aware of what the new administration (the AD and Pres.) are going to do with the football program. I have repeated, ad nauseum, that we should always follow the money. First and foremost. Take off your fan hat and put on your business hat. UT has been hemorrhaging money this past year. And it doesn't like it.. So it is considering options to stop the bleeding. Especially since the football program is the main sports money maker. (Don't even ask about the schools other revenue sides). Although Herman's buyout is an obvious consideration, it is pimp money compared to what they have lost in the program altogether. So they are considering their business options and if, you, the business hat were in their place what would you do to put a finger in the dike and maybe even jack up sales? Get my drift, Mr. Business man? EDIT: And let me repeat one more tiresome thing. If you think the university gives a damn what the fans want, you are sadly mistaken.
  20. Lol! In defense of those that shot you down you must understand they view Dabo and Clemson as the ultimate and that Dabo would never leave just as they wouldn't if they had the job However, coaches by nature are egotistical and extremely competitive. It is what drives their life and ego. Dabo is already rich so it wouldn't be for money he would leave. Just like it wouldn't have been for Saban.. It's the challenge that gets his juices stirring and the money is just frosting on the cake. Do you really believe that jimbo would want him and his family to live in that crap hole?
  21. Where is your home located and you will pay off the mortgage and give the home to me if you are wrong? You have no idea how close we were to snagging Saban. And it appears you still think Clemson is a plum job over Texas. I can understand your frustration with the product on the football field, but don't EVER think the Texas job is not at the very least as good and viewed by most as better.
  22. Eastex - you are a hardhead on IT as well. (you are the eastex from IT, aren't you?). Name me a better job and I will counter all the things that make UT better. Just because the morons in college station gave the farm away doesn't mean every other university is that stupid. IMO Herman is making an obscene amount as it is. Especially since our ROI sucks with him. Besides big time HC jobs are not easy anywhere you go. Texas is no different.
  23. I tried to caveat my comment by stating no outside drama. I forgot to include health. I was trying to encapsulate coaching only.
