In a way I hate to lose Coach Boom but he was a shadow of his former self this year, so subdued. And his defense was not stellar. And his recruits have not been great. Maybe a change is good.
When the Regents meet on Friday to approve the new DC contract I hope they point out to Mack the error in his ways. He has us thinking a ten win season equates to success. Success is winning the Big 12 or whatever they will call themselves next year. Stoops 7, Brown 2.
Attendance was 10,000 for the N Florida game. North FL, are you kidding me? Who will we schedule next, West West Virginia? Turnstile was 5,000. Hmm, the other 3,000 must have been invisible. It’s getting harder and harder to be a UT basketball fan.
Kansas is the cream of the crop. And, instead of challenging them, we are being supplanted by Baylor and K State. Please tell me this is not true, that I am having a bad dream. Baylor? WTF? This cannot be happening.
I’m fairly confident Mack will make us happy and we will be big winners again. I’m not so sure about Barnes. He has convinced us and the media that getting to the tournament every year equates to success. What it really means is that we have settled.
The Florida AD took a flier on Billy Donovan and they have not one but two national championships to show for it.
Dodds has done a good job but he has become stodgy and conservative. What do you think?
