We ARE the Joneses (TM)

This off-hand comment by DeLoss Dodds, which BON has now picked up, has transformed us from an admired program into what the rest of the world views as hubristic jackasses. Even worse Dodds has managed to alienate a large percentage of the Longhorn faithful with his Longhorn Network that about six people get. It is time for Dodds to retire.

Which brings me to Dodds’ asshole buddy Mack Brown. The Regents should have grown a pair and said, "Mack, win the Big 12, then we will talk." But no they incredibly gave him a contract extension. Please note that I am a fan of Brown, and as such do not want him fired, but we should demand performance for pay.

Which sadly brings me to Rick Barnes. He has done a great job of taking us to the next level, but we will need a new coach to take us all the way. Barnes’ forte is taking smallish teams and getting them to over-perform which has been moderately successful in the Big 12 but which also guarantees early exit at tournament time. For what we pay him we can bring in a coach who can coach big men thereby giving us a shot at a title.

In short, the men’s athletic department has turned us into a bigger joke than aggy. God how I hate that!
