    Almost as unceremonious as his past 2 victories to finish off the season, Tom "the turtle" Herman has been removed as the head coach of the Texas Longhorns. 
     
    We don't really wish you anything, but to get the hell out of here Tom.

    Texas triples down on “potential” over “proven” after Strong and Herman experiments failed.  Perhaps they had no choice with bridges burned internally and hard No’s from higher hanging fruit, but from where I’m sitting this feels like a likely lateral move while hoping what you throw at the proverbial wall finally sticks.  Definitely not sexy or game-changing on day of the hire.  Will be up to Sark to create the sexy or we’ll be having the same ole conversation 3 or 4 years from now.

    This is a horrible hire in every way. Embarrassing.

    Any kid on our roster with 2 brain cells should transfer. I encourage them to do so. 

    Is CDC reckless? Stupid? Incompetent? All of these? Regardless, only an idiot would allow their son to play for this institution, with leadership this poor.

    Dude must give blow jobs in his interviews or something as he’s done nothing to justify his fall upward. Holy Hell, CDC, I thought we were leaving 2020 behind us? This is at best an even swap, but I think it’ll be harder to get rid of Sark after dark than Herman (who was very disliked). Sark’s actually not a thin-skinned prick. Sets UT back another 8 years.

    I wouldn't like a Sarkisian hire but he hasn't fallen upward. He lost his head coaching gig, went back to assisting, and actually turned Alabama into an offensive juggernaut (being the first offensive guy to convince Saban he needed to open it up)*.

    He's done very very well as an offensive assistant in his second go at that. Doesn't mean I want him hired as Texas head coach but failing up doesn't apply.

    People were generally happy when we hired Charlie Strong.

    Maybe the Sark hate means we finally made the right hire, lol.

    or we finally reached a point of total conciousness

    Is this hire fucking with Nicky in any sense?  That's the only redeeming sense of satisfaction I can garner from this today.  Sark should be missing in Miami and Mac Jones throws four picks sort of freakout would at least make me feel a little better.

    Time to start the list of who we hire in 2023 after this no-talent drunk leads us to back-to-back losing seasons. I guess aspiring to beat Iowa State and TCU was just too much for CDC.

    I don't think Sark is a terrible choice for UT - assuming (as we must) that he's rid himself of his demons. He pulled UW out of its worst period in history (for which most of us here are thankful) and certainly has put in the time at Alabama. It will be easy for me to root for him at Texas.

    If he can build a solid defensive staff - his failing at UW - he's got the ability with the resources at UT to do very well.

    Yeah, he's no Urban Meyer but I think there is a very good chance he'll have success on the 40 Acres. Y'all did alright with the last former UW coach you hired (Darrell Royal).

    I'll be pulling for you and Sark.

    This is where I am. And optimism is more fun personally.

    This is like when you take a hot chick home thinking youre gonna score and it turns out she has a dick

    It’s more like settling for the fat chick at the end of the bar and then finding out she has a dick.

    its time to fire CDC. I knew he was an imbecile.

    According to insiders, CDC wasn't in charge of the hire.  He'd been kicked to the curb by the BMDs.  You know, our "brain trust."
