Daily Round Up: So Much For That Game Against UH

I hope you didn’t make plans to attend the UT-UH game.

Well, there goes the series with Houston. “The University of Texas rejected an offer by Houston to play home-and-home football and basketball series in exchange for reducing the buyout owed for former coach Tom Herman, Houston athletic director Hunter Yurachek said.”

Charlie Strong took a pay cut to coach at South Florida but he still has the UT buyout. “Since Strong acquired a new job, his buyout has been reduced by half of the amount of his new salary, meaning Texas will pay him about $4 million in 2017 and 2018.”

The Sooners only care about football. “But the Westbrook case is different for one reason — a background check didn’t turn up that he had been arrested twice on allegations of domestic violence. It took Cody Stavenhagen of the Tulsa World to do that — something OU should have done before it ever offered Westbrook a scholarship.”

Bobby Petrino has denied all involvement all involvement with Wakeyleaks. "I have no knowledge of the situation," Petrino said in a statement at the time. "We take a lot of pride in the way we operate our program. As I've stated already this season, my coaching philosophy has always been to play the game with sportsmanship. Right now, our focus is on our game tomorrow at Houston and finishing the 2016 season strong."

Jim Harbaugh has enemies everywhere. "He said 'Look guys, short, sweet, to the point, I'm not leaving, don't worry about it'. These are lies made up by our enemies'," Glasgow said during the team's bust on Tuesday night. "It got the team riled up. We don't want any enemies infiltrating our fortress."

In college football, the rich just keep getting richer. “But had the Big 12 taken Houston, might Houston have had a shot at keeping Herman? ‘I think we would have, yes,’ Houston Athletic Director Hunter Yurachek said Tuesday.”
