dude I love your fandom but I bet you eat this comment sooner rather than later
You thinking maybe 15 or 20 instead? I like your style.
Want to beat OU but want Mack Brown gone. Very confused right now.
Mack is gone no matter what. Whatever happens now is just a farewell tour for him
with even a decent QB how many points would Texas have?
I've never been a big Case fan, but at least he's managed to be a bus driver the last few games. One thing for sure, UT needs to recruit better QBs to be competitive for NCs again.
I'm sure to wake up from this bizarro world I seem to be living in today.
Did not see this coming, pleasantly surprised
did Mack tell the team he was retiring?
I'm shocked no matter what happens. I think Mack is gone no matter what but I did not expect this. Rivalry games are a pain.
I live for them. Also, sometimes I die. LOL..
Longhorns crushed the Sooners, wow. Who'd have thought?
Briles was "a Coog for life" at one point as well. How did that work out?
worked out great for Sumlin
Big 12 was where he always wanted to be, not Conference USA. And he turned away both his alma maters to be with Baylor, he's not going to jump across conference to another team he has no prior affiliation with beyond his son having a bad experience with Mack Brown.
PS in 2002 he approached Baylor about interviewing with the Bears, he was at the time runningbacks coach under Mike Leach at Tech, Baylor AD Ian McCaw told him the criteria for a head coach would be someone with head coaching experience, and recommended he go get some and that Baylor would sure as heck take a second look at him down the line if the job came open.
Low and behold in 2007 it did, and Baylor hired him.
Baylor gave him the big time AQ opportunity he always wanted, he was willing to leave one of his alma maters for it, he reached out to Baylor four years before they hired him and he was employed by his other alma mater, and he declined to be lured back to Tech in 2009, he is staying at Baylor.
Yeah, Sumlin has never inherited a bare pantry. Briles left him great roster at UH and Mike Sherman left him unrealized talent and depth at A&M.
One reason Texas might be wise to look at Tony Levine, who is winning at UH, is he is doing it without any Briles recruits, and since UH's last two coaches were good as AQ coaches, perhaps Levine will be as well.
Whatever. The fact remains that AB said all the same things about being committed to UH, but when the time came he showed his true colors.
Yep, Green & Gold.
Houston is in better position not to lose coaches to AQ programs now that they've finally joined an AQ conference, all be it the lesser of them, it is a positive step in the competitive direction going forward. Conference USA was a starter conference for any coach with ambition, it was never going to be a destination for a coach like Briles or Sumlin, UH has much better potential of regaining some SWC glory in the renamed Big East, and maybe in the future in the Big 12 or elsewhere.
