    If I understand correctly, Bev Kearney was the track coach who had an affair with a student athlete and was fired.

    Allegedly Major Applewhite was also caught having an fling with a student trainer but it was swept under the rug.

    Something like that correct?

    Yes that's right. I think that is the foundation for this new story that's about to break.

    If this doesn't result in Deloser Dodds getting fired I'll be extremely disappointed. We're good at golf, that's it. But this will probably end up with a Mack contract extension somehow. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

    You know outside of a major recruitng violation or somethign causing them to lose scholarships and bowl games I don't see what could be that bad.

    College coaches shouldn't sleep with students, but they are adults. I love that Mack brought a championship, but really no one on that campus should feel to safe because of production not scandal.

    This is an old story. This story broke like a month ago. The Kearney Story broke in November of 2012.

    I don't really think this story is that big of a deal any longer but I guess we'll see.

    Short memory, I see.

    Over the last decade, Texas has had one the premier overall sports programs in the country...and they've gone from nothing special 20 years ago to the wealthiest program in the entire NCAA.

    Like Galloway and others say..."Ahh, the whiney Orange".

    And I am a UT fan of sorts.

    Just a further note:

    There are only four sport programs in the whole country that routinely rank (on average) in the top 10 in the "all-sports" race and also have a BCS football title. They are Texas, Florida, USC, and Ohio St.

    Yeah, we have money. A football program circling the drain, a basketball program that makes football look good, baseball that is on the way down and an Athletic Director that doesn't care because we have money. And golf.

    Eh, those tweets sound a lot worse than the Applewhite story to me.

    Of course it could just be hyperbole from those people.

    Yes but her and her lawyers might have some dirt on the athletic department.

    I don't know about you guys but I'm ready for a compete overhaul of the athletic department. I hope Powers keeps his job because I like the route he's trying to take the university. On the other hand, if he falls from this then Rick Perry will set this university back many years.

    You have no clue what you're talking about. Total short-sighted, what-have-you-done-lately talk.

    UT was 5th in the country in overall sports last year, so they have plenty of good teams.
    You can't possibly think one the country's most consistant football programs is going down the drain after just a couple of years of mediocrity....following top 10 finishes for a 10-15 straight years.
    And you sound like basketball and , of all things baseball, have been terrible for 5-10 straight years. UT baseball is freaking iconic.

    Classic UT brat-talk.

    I hope these affairs and flings are with consenting adults only. That is to say, I hope it is not another situation like what we have seen at Penn State.

    If not, you deserve to get fired , and Jailed

    Classic we're the Jones and nobody is as good as us talk.
    In the last 3 years Mack brown has gone from a Boise St offense, to an Alabama offense to now this spring an up tempo offense. We just had the worst defense in UT history. We're losing recruits to a&m and just had two of the biggest blowout losses in history to OU. The game has passed him by but hey, we won it all 8 years ago so lets put our heads in the sand and talk about how good we used to be.
    Basketball, they do always make the tournament but no one really gives a crap so I guess it doesn't matter.
    Baseball, does Augie even go to the games anymore?

    who cares about being 5th in all sports when golf and swimming is what has us up there.

    Mack's coaching them up

    If we have all this money and power, we shouldn't be settling for this crap in basketball at least! Rick Barnes has done crap with some insane talent! Look at the rosters in the mid to late 2000's! It's crazy how many good to great NBA players he has had without a single deep NCAA run since the days of TJ Ford! Football is kind of understandable that they want Mack around, even though I disagree. But Rick Barnes is worthless

    Apparently Cayleb Jones was arrested according to the local ESPN affiliate, which is sharing a report from Chip Jones of orangebloods.com He supposedly hit a UT tennis player or something to that effect. This incident happened in late February.

    WR Cayleb Jones is charged with aggravated assault after fracturing the jaw of a #UT tennis player

    He hit tennisplayer Joseph Swaysland over his relationship with volleyball player Katherine Bell, per Carter Strickland's twitter.

    Ok I just read the report. A felony? Man I hope this doesn't end up bad for him but it sounds like a scorned boyfriend trying to control a girl.
