Muschamp Rumors Won't Go Away

With news that Texas Athletic Director Deloss Dodds will likely receive a contract extension in the midst of the turbulence surrounding possible conference realignment, speculation has started anew about the future of Will Muschamp at Texas. The obvious ramification is that the extension will delay Mack Brown's possible move from head coach to athletic director, a move that Texas continues to deny. The next step for football writers looking to find something to talk abut in the off-season is to start speculating about Muschamp becoming impatient and taking another job, speculation fueled in some measure by Brown not only refusing to give a timetable, but seemingly feeling more comfortable in his job than at any other point in his tenure at Texas. So in wades the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Tony Barnhart, one of the most respected college football writers around, teasing that Muschamp "could be available for the 2011 season" and basically laying out the current situation as described above. The point of all this is just that Texas fans needs to be prepared for this type of speculation several times a year until Mack Brown steps down as coach -- it's a fabric of the landscape now. And, hey, that's better than the alternative, which is watching Coach Boom from afar as he leads another team. Oh yeah, and it's also a slow news day in the world of Texas sports (I'mjustasbadastheyareforusingthesameexcuse).

Mack Brown Announces 2010 to be Final Year as Head Coach

Earlier this year I posited that Mack may have planned on 2009 being his last run at a title, with 2010 being his "victory lap" to set up Muschamp for his ascension to the throne. Well, it looks like that was the plan, it just didn't turn out the way we'd hoped. Surely this will be the focal point of discussion for at least a month, but for now, an astrophysics test and an airpline ride await.

InsideTexas Says Muschamp Met With Tennessee This Morning

Refrain from melting down for the time being. Lots of faulty sources out there so far (this one has "historic ties to UT Men's Athletic Department", whatever that means) and even if it's true, it doesn't mean anything. Yet. Follow the ongoing story at SBNation. [HT to BMC237] UPDATE (PB): Howevah, same Inside Texas source (Ross Lucksinger) saying Muschamp turned down TN offer. Interesting to see what's what when this all settles. UPDATE 9:30 PB: Lucksinger's latest: "Recruits have been contacted and told Muschamp is staying." And with that, we're done updating unless it's from Belmont. FINAL UPDATE (PB): It's over. Muschamp stays, is happy right where he is. Whoever was sourcing Lucksinger was plain wrong. Hooray for needless scare.

Leach on Kindle's Hit: "Really obvious helmet-to-helmet"

I prefer Muschamp's Take: "I liken it to holding. If they call it, it's holding. If they don't call it, it's not. They didn't call it." So there was nothing wrong with Kindle's hit? "Nothing. Great hit," Muschamp said.

Even better -- the coordinators talk, too

Coach Boom is back behind the microphone, a welcome place for him. As is Greg Davis, coming off a season where he remarkably suffered little criticism. Quite a movement in his career. Yes! More football information.
