    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    The school isn’t paying for it. He’ll be on an associate professor’s salary (or something like that) from the university, making him an official university employee. The Longhorn Foundation, funded entirely from outside donation, pays the real money.

    Agree. It is super fast moving with not a lot of thought in most posts, but at least it’s not orangebloods.com. Almost no one on Surly claims real insider information.

    My post is about the HC hiring process. Yes we are all thankful for Mack. The point is that it was supposed to be Gary Barnett due to an absolute clown show of a search process that the big-money donors force down the AD’s throat every damn time.

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    If this is true it is a perfect representation of what an unholy mess the football program is. They have screwed up every head coaching hiring process since the regents forced coach Royal out in 1976. Every single one. Royal wanted Mike Campbell to succeed him so the regents picked Fred to spite...

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    Money wasn’t the issue. He apparently was concerned about his health and the year-round stress of college football, including having to deal with our absolutely bonkers big-money donors (the tail wags the dog at Texas). He also as, it seems, expressed interest in the NFL and wanted to keep his...

    I am absolutely gobsmacked at this. I was all for getting rid of Herman; not sure what to think of Sarkisian.

    Lol. Not enough bad things can happen to Florida. Too bad it’s against the Sooners.

    True. Back when I was able to run and compete, I ran two halves and a full marathon in bare feet. But it’s not for everyone. Just do what makes you comfortable.

    Thank goodness. Now we can fire Herman and wrap up Meyer.

    And I am so totally down with that. As long as the boosters are paying, I am ready to be relevant again. This would be the first coaching search that Bellmont has not screwed up since they forced out coach Royal.
