Post by: Bqqkie Pimp on July 24, 2014, 04:24:11 PM
I'll leave the more obvious news of the day alone to open this thread and lead with the fact that the SID managed to mis-spell "Texas" on every page of the media guides that were handed out this past Monday/Tuesday in Dallas...

http://www.foxsports.com/southwest/story/texas-misspelled-on-every-page-of-longhorns-media-guide-072414

The Texas football team was recently given a random drug test, according to Chip Brown of Horns Digest.
Brown suggests this could be the reasoning for the numerous recent dismissals by head coach Charlie Strong. Two players were dismissed from the team this past spring, and Brown points out it was due to failed drug tests. Running back Joe Bergeron, backup safety Chevoski Collins and running back Jalen Overstreet were recently dismissed for violating team rules. Horns Digest notes two more players are under review.

Source: Horns Digest Jul 25 - 3:12 PM

Bold. He's cracking down. Kicking players out for sexual assault is one thing, but dismissing two of your top RB's for smoking pot is taking it to another level(Bergeron and Overstreet). Big 12 might be the cleanest conference due to Patterson and Strong. Good thing  :dunno:

Macks mumped texas since 2010. It's going to take a few years to cut the fat that butter teeth had on the team.

the end product will be successful. no more juice bars and orange slices. Strong will field a team right away that wont win them all...but hopefully you'll remember playing Texas.

Mack was/is just the best and got a raw deal IMO.

But ya know, Strong sings high praise of our LHCBS.   

The issue that I see is that Texas has a lot of clingers, and big cigars, and Texas H.S. coaches all think they're the Flying Spaghetti Monster's gift to football and . . . can a personality like Strong handle it???

But my prediction for the entirety of major conference D1 football in Texas over the next few yeas is:  With the exception of maybe Baylor it will be giant pile of mediocrity which will mirror the final days of the SWC.

aTm is gonna fall back, and that's why I would suggest to my friends in the construction and architecture industry to be getting progress payments, if not cash money up front.   Because they'll have 20,000 empty seats at Made Up Championships Stadium and Various Other Re-Writings of History Stadium/Kyle Field.

Jeremy Crabtree (friend of goEMAW), was on BITB the other day talking about recruiting, the topic strayed to Charlie Strong and Texas.  Crabtree, who is typically very subtle about any criticism, was very clear that Texas high school coaches are NOT responding well to Charlie Strong.  They don't like him.  Crabtree seemed quite convinced of this.  He then pointed out that aTm and Sumlin ARE well received by Texas HS coaches.

Then, you have Charlie Strong at Big 12 media days take some random question and seemingly absurdly go into a long winded tangential statement about how great Texas high school coaches, and how he loves them so much.

I immediately thought, "that dude is mumped."  I don't see Charlie Strong winning at Texas.  He's getting out recruited, when he has every advantage in the world.  There is NO way Texas fans accept being like Kansas State, where they are forced to ignore recruiting rankings.  Won't work.  They won't accept it.

I hear ya Pete.

But then I go look at Texas' commit list and while it wasn't filled up a year in advance like it was under Mack, and didn't quite have as many stars as Mack got.

They're still getting guys with huge offer lists from high major schools.    The QB they got out of NM has an offer list a mile long.    Even the "3 star" guys all had offers from four and five Big Five conference schools.

Sorry, but until aTm actually fields a defense I see nothing but 7-5 in their future and by that time Sumlin will be off to the NFL . . . IMO.

TX recruiting is absolute hot garbage right now.  by UT standards.  very disappointing.  #32 rivals class, behind 8 SEC schools.  9 commits from TX Top 100 (1 from top 25).  A&M has 15 commits from TX Top 100 (7 from top 25).  Back in 2010, UT had 15 of the TX Top 25, 7 of the Top 10.  UT is the 3rd or 4th best program in TX right now.  Behind A&M and Baylor and about even with TCU.  I can envision 7-5 seasons from A&M.  sure.  But, if they keep recruiting well, I can see 8-4 and 9-3 seasons becoming pretty routine down there.  As long as Briles and his new stadium keep producing, I can see them being a consistent 8-4, 9-3, top half of the B12 caliber program.  OU isn't going anywhere. 

Long story short, Strong has the resources to turn it around in 1 season.  TX is a program that should have a top-10 recruiting class every year and should win the state of TX every year.  If they've not regained this status in 3 years, Strong's history.

Texas fans wont be holding him to a pedestal right away...we know there's a load of work to be done. Mack buried this program for years. Strongs got his work cut out for him, at least his history shows he's turned programs around before.

Mack would just take the Texas 100 list and then went and started offering.    The stories about the lack of scouting, lack of film work, just take a list, bring in a bunch of 4 and 5 star kids on visits, love all over them and then offer abound.

Did Texas just blow this game in a way that only Texas can?  Up 4, 4:36 on the clock and you get the interception.  So what do you do?  How about a 4/out followed by allowing a 2 touch TD.  Great job.

I do think Coach Strong probably gave the players their horns back a little bit too soon. They clearly weren't ready for them, and now if he takes them away again before the next season, they will know he will cave in and just give them back before the first game.

Does your memory not go back the 20 months or so ago when they hired strong as like their 5th or 6th choice?

Also the narrative when Mack left is that he and his staff just stopped recruiting and the cupboards were beyond bare. If that is the case why are we indicting Charlie Strong after 14 games? There's no way UT makes a bowl last year with butter teeth still there.

I don't think it was the fact that Mack stopped recruiting, it was the fact that Mack and staff just stopped recruiting in a way that actually made sense.   Which may be worse.   They were just taking guys because they had a huge rating and because they could, without real evaluations of where they fit into the system.

The only coach who has had great success at a major program that was down when he arrived in Year 1 is Urban Meyer. There are far more cases where they make the big leap in Year 2 - Carroll at USC, Stoops at OU, Saban at Alabama. Even Mack Brown didn't really breakthrough with a big season until Year 4. Not exactly the same, but Snyder's big leap came in Year 2.

good points.  not really fair to cast too much blame on Strong for year 1.  but, if the ND game is any indicator, there won't be a big leap in year 2.  notwithstanding, I still don't think Strong is/was an elite coach and I think UT should have been able to do better.

I mean he got fired because he wouldn't/couldn't get recruits to the University of Texas. Tyrone Swoopes was his quarterback, he broke their like 24,729 year streak of NFL draft picks. How in the world would that work here?

Joe Hubener is our quarterback, and we barely even had to recruit him.

When Mack Brown was rolling his strength was recruiting, his player development was always questioned.

Why keep mack brown when every coach in the world would kill to coach at texas?

Well, I mean, him being a better coach for starters.


SD, better coach: Mack or Ned Yost?

Well, both are by far the best coaches in their respective programs histories. Mack won at a higher level than Ned has to date. But, Ned can catch him.

Another "swing and a miss"... Not race related at all. Strong, like Prince, is following a long tenured (bordering on legendary) coach and falling flat on his face while setting that program back another 4-5 years.  Nice try, racist.

Fair play, MIR. I lumped you in with the race-baiting of meow-mix...

I agree that that there are differences between Prince's & Strong's experience level. With that said, there are also some similarities... Namely, being in over one's head while trying to follow a "legend". (And I use "legend" fairly loosely in regards to Mack)

This really went off track seeing as how all I was trying to say is how fuggin' funny it'd be to beat UT with the coach they ran off.

Mack was certainly a coach in decline, but he's still vastly superior to Charlie Strong.  That guy is in way over his head.  They've lost their last 3 games by a combined 97 points.  I've seen Texas have down years before, but I don't remember them ever taking consistent beatings like this before.
Title: Re: Texas Football is hurting
Post by: sonofdaxjones on September 11, 2015, 09:00:33 AM
Strong's biggest mistake is having an incompentent offensive staff.    While I get sick of the LHC Bill Snyder stories I'll admit that about the only way I could see those reclamation projects he had on his offensive staff to be any good at all, is for them to be working under someone like Snyder.    Left to their own devices by a defensive oriented head coach like Strong, it is a recipe for disaster.

If a FB or MBB coach has a problem, does a good AD openly say "If they have a problem, they talk to a mid-level AD boss"?  The idea that the AD at Texas openly says if the Texas FB coach has a problem his boss will elevate it to me is crazy to me.

I fully believe that KSU does something like this to insulate Currie and allow Bill to keep his semi-God status.  There's no way in hell Stoops or Harbaugh or Meyer or Saban are talking to a mid-level AD to elevate it if they have a problem.  Every story that's come out about Patterson makes me believe that statement he made about how UT operates is true.

This really had more to do with Patterson pissing off big boosters and rank & file alums and ultimately the new Pres that did not hire him. This tidbit from Chip is solid gold

Quote
On Sept. 4, the night before the Notre Dame game, at a high-dollar Texas reception thrown by Fenves’ office for donors at the top of the Hancock Tower in Chicago, Fenves acknowledged some key figures in the room.

He publicly thanked Texas chancellor Adm. William McRaven as well as those who helped organize the event. But Fenves made no acknowledgement of Patterson, who was also in the room.

Sources said there were no name tags for Patterson and his wife, Yasmine Michael, when they checked in for Fenves’ reception.

That allegedly led to a fit thrown by Michael, who has gotten very involved in donor relations at Texas. The lack of name tags also led to questions about if Patterson and Michael were invited, sources said.
If Strong had gone 8-4 and was 2-0 this year he is probably still employed

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, former Texas coach and ESPN analyst Mack Brown, Louisville AD Tom Jurich and NCAA executive vice president Oliver Luck are among the candidates to replace Patterson, sources told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

This is, bar none, the biggest meltdown I have ever seen...and it's only getting bigger.  When will Texas finally get a fair shake? 

They're right, though.  They need to go somewhere with officiating that is beyond reproach, and that place is obviously the PAC 12.  That conference is the gold standard for quality officiating.

I hope that instantly made the Texas fans realize how ridiculous they are being.

Some awful calls, no doubt. But I would say the punter's inability to kick the ball beyond the line of scrimmage was a bigger factor in the loss...as was Strong's clock management.

Quote from: ShaggyTexas poster who is clearly hurting
Charlie Strong didn't get flagged for what he said. He got flagged for being a black head coach at 'tu' and saying what he said to an aggy with a penalty flag.

Coach Strong got uppity with an aggy who from his days in the aggy corps had never tolerated a black man calling bull$#@! bull$#@! and the aggy exactly reacted as one would expect. He put Charlie Strong back in his place. Or so he thought.

Walt Anderson and Bob Bolwsby can condone this bull$#@! all they want. This is absolute bull$#@! and Mike Perrin had better not also condone it. The good 'ol boy power structure in the Big 12 cannot be allowed to ensure the $#@!s behind this circus are allowed to escape accountability.

$#@! Walt Anderson, $#@! Bob Bowlsby, $#@! the "good 'ol boy Big 12 power structure" and $#@! the Big 12
Would I be a bad person if I pointed out that Texas A&M has a black coach of their own and that Walt Anderson is a Texas grad?

My favorite was the guy who said something along the lines of "I usually hate it when people play the race card, but this time it's totally justified".

It's a pretty amazing coincidence that the only time this white dude from Austin has ever agreed with playing the race card just happens to also be the one time that it supports his agenda.

I don't remember where I saw it, but I think Patterson was burning bridges with Nike, and that was one of the many reasons he fell out of favor so quickly.  They didn't trust him to execute this process in the best interest of Texas, regardless of who they ultimately picked.
