  1. The ship has sailed I think. Students fuel all of these traditions. The Eyes will only stay if the students genuinely want to keep it. No report will change that. Or maybe there is a real engagement strategy. Who knows. I love the tradition myself, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s some silly lyrics to the tune of “Imma workin’ on the railroad.”

  3. Excess deaths prove you wrong. And this is with massive isolation, masking, and mitigation for a year.
  4. If students have to be coerced to participate, then the Eyes will not only fade away, but UT will continue to be humiliated in the national press, negatively recruited, and distracted by a wedge issue. “I’ve been working on the railroad”’s days are numbered. Perhaps you’d be more at home in College Station, where traditions are more sacred.
  5. Eagles looked damn good in the Iowa State game, including that knee slide catch over his head. I think play design and QB accuracy would have helped him get better experience and more confidence.
  6. Nationally, Eyes has been smeared and it will be an upheld battle to retain it as a tradition. The comp was in reply to the idea that Eyes will stay no matter what. Not that it was exact same situation. Bottom-line: if its a no go with students and spirit groups and athletes, it will fade away. Or become really awkward. Awkward is not good for anyone. Also, our racist underbelly was exposed in the bigwig emails. That’s gonna leave a mark.
  7. Cloth mask debate is analogous to our bad coaching debate Charlie Strong is like wearing no mask Shaka Smart is like wearing a cloth mask Tom Herman is like wearing an N95, but not over your nose and sometimes getting drunk without any mask in a strip club. Steve Sarkisian is like getting a vaccination and praying to God it works against new strains of the disease (OU)
  8. Jack Ryan’s not a believable action hero. Thats part of whats so compelling about the character.
  9. Baldwin >>> Old Ass Harrison Ford It’s really not close. Baldwin as Jack Ryan was a wonky, reluctant action hero. Lot’s of energy and comedy at own expense. Ford was Old Ford. Could have been playing the President and yelling “get off my plane!” Your conclusions were all wrong. Ford acted stupidly.
  10. Seemed fine. Had a great comic and action chops. Carried the movie at times and made it fresher than another comic book movie. Was supposed to be a bit out of place or dorky. Jon Snow or a young Keanu? No thanks.
  11. He should strenuously object.
  12. How should DeShaun escape a toxic franchise?
  13. The filibuster is the only issue. Nothing else matters.
  14. The organization has scuttled itself. Watson played with a collapsed lung and is heading into the prime of his career. His leverage is that he is the only thing of value in that organization and has already experienced pain and failure. I’m not sure how bad the holdout rules are, but he could pull a Kawhi and milk an injury. He likely already has an injury that an independent physician could verify. He shows up. Does what he wants. Calls the plays he wants. Reports all injuries. It’d be different if he wasn’t already one of the best players in the league and a natural leader.
