    That's true, but Ricky will never be a head coach at Texas either.

    Lubbock Texas and Texas Tech are FAR FAR FAR more conservative than Austin or UT.
    Leach's issue has been his desire to be an outsider and oddball.
    He strives for that. He likes being a rebel and he despises authority.

    Tech didn't get rid of him lightly though.
    They did so largely because of salary.
    They felt he strong-armed them into a VERY high salary for the school.

    And the fan base absolutely hated the administration for firing Leach.
    The Church-going tee-totalers who are card-carrying tea party members LOVED that guy.
    Hiring Kliff was as much about bringing back Leach supporters as it was grabbing a youthful exuberant coach.

    Leach would/could have been a very successful Coach at UT.
    But that was a lot for the rich Regents to swallow.

    Malzahn? Not at all. He's a traditional Southern white guy who's won big with offenses that excite the masses and his star is certainly ascending.
    He'd jump on this job and he'd LIVE it. As Kristie mentioned the guy does 16-18 hour days in the office.

    I think Mack is DONE. When Campbell calls for your head you can say Goodbye.
    And I'd say odds are 40/40 right now between Saban(his job on his terms if he wants it obviously) and Malzahn with the rest of the world totaling 20%.

    I am not saying this as a smart arse but have you ever been to Austin, Texas?

    If Red Raiders, Aggies and Longhorns can't goad each other then forums are useless. I have never known Aggies to be so sensitive.

    As to the rest. No, I am looking at it from MY perspective. Not UT's or Saban's because they didn't share their perspective with me.
    Mine.
    Saban is a living legend wherever he goes.
    He's not getting any bigger in Alabama than he already is.

    He can stay there and face the toughest road to National Championships that exist via the SEC East OR he can move to the Big 12 and own one of the most powerful states in the union and the producer of insane amounts of football talent.
    At UT he has a VERY LARGE say in what the ENTIRE conference does.

    And if you think the Longhorn network is failing if they hire Saban you are just lying to yourself.

    If I am a Longhorn network director and UT hired Malzahn, Kristie has a regular weekly reality show day 1.

    I kid you not. She's as crazy as (and more entertaining than) a Kardashian and with her husband working around the clock she has the free time.
