Urban Meyer or bust

Yep. Clemson is far from a blue blood. The term Dabo'ing was coined because how much Dabo choked at Clemson. Boom, playoff appearances 4 straight years and 2 national titles wins. They have now passed Texas right now in the present. They are an attractive destination. Texas is not. But I get it, people will hang on to the all time wins, blue blood, We're Texas, 2005. It's natural. But some people need to come to grips to what Texas is right now in football. We are not a blue blood at the moment. Not even close.

As Swandered pointed out, it was Clemson'ing -- not Dabo'ing.

no way in hell you can watch our oline and say talent isn't a problem

They're not world-beaters but the coaching is so ridiculously bad they don't have a chance.

When your team regresses instead of progressing it’s 100% coaching. Especially if injuries aren’t involved.

 Do you think injuries aren’t involved with this teams problems this year?

I’m not saying a change isn’t warranted but this team was playing a ab at rb yesterday and had played mason Ramirez as a db

Our offensive line has been intact all year I do believe, minus a game or so.


Yes our secondary has been beat up but that doesn’t explain the entire rest of the team getting worse.

I have OU fans in my family. They don't even taunt me after a loss anymore. It would just be dog piling. We're getting to be like the loser in the family that's used to being the zero, it no longer bothers them to be humiliated or to need other people's help, their* past even trying to take care of themselves, when you see them you try to be respectful so as not to be cruel, but inside you have nothing but contempt, and are just glad you have never sunk that low

This is no longer about winning games or winning championships, this is about not tarnishing the university, It's about having some self respect, It's about having a football team show up on Saturday that doesn't embarrass themselves, and make no mistake that sh** Show yesterday should embarrass you

The hubris here is thinking you can humiliate yourselves for ten years running and assume it's just a matter of time before you make it back to prominence because "we're Texas"

What a bunch of buffoons

We need to hire Urban Meyer because he will kick people's asses, and everyone will respect us for doing that regardless of what they say

Also if CDC pulls this off, and it works out well,  he’s a hero forever here.  If he pulls it off and Urban can’t right the ship either, well the same fate would happen in regard to CDC.

I just think Meyer could get it done in a shorter period of time than others.

And..... don’t let anyone fool you about the sports vs education thing either.  Many people that go to major colleges for Academics, also want good sports teams.  Or they lean towards the school with better sports teams when there are identical majors and costs involved.

I’m fine with the sentiment and think those that are critical of Saban/Meyer - particularly Saban - are retarded. But Dabo and Chizik were unproven and arguably Jimbo and Mack too. 

Reading comprehension, dude.  Work on it.  Dabo, Chizik, Jimbo and Mack were unproven.  And only one of those is a blue blood program (aka all the big shit that comes with a blue blood school).

Which leaves Mack...20 years ago.  That formula doesn’t seem to work anymore.  Or hasn’t for 20 years.

The formula for a program like UT is spelled out in crayon right before us.  And in order for it to work, it takes a proven coach at a college football behemoth like UT.  Apparently it’s the special ingredient that is really really hard to find.  And there just happens to be one available right fucking now.  Hire Urban.

If CDC wants the Dabo formula to happen, then after hiring an OC & DC, he’s also going to need to find a church to purchase 5 star talent every year.

Urban Meyer wouldn't call a time out down by 21 with 5 seconds remaining to score a TD. Herman is truly embarrassing and inept. Meyer would shape the 2020 team into something respectable, 10-2 sounds about right. Urban recruited some premier players from the state of Texas to play for him in Ohio, can you imagine the recruiting classes he'd sign in Austin? Kids would be lining up to play for a 3x National Championship winner who finishes in the Top 10 year after year. He's been a bad ass coach at every stop. He tore up the mid-major ranks and carried that success into the SEC and Big 10.

Urban does seem to make the most sense, but I'd need someone to convince me he wouldn't step out in an unexpected stress/medical reason.  

I wouldn’t expect him to stay long but if we had a few successful seasons in a row and were in NC contention, it would be easier for the following coach to maintain than build it up.

We don’t need him to stay 10 years. Get it turned around, win a NC in year 2-3 and then he can walk away. There are no other good options out there this year.

I remember ou going through this shit aka “decade of shame” in the 90’s after they had to dump Switzer. Gardere is still throwing TD’s against those shitty teams. 

They started with Gibbs, tried a once proven but now inhebriated Smellsofburbon. And finally to close out the decade with John Blake (a real gem offered up by Switzer). Blake, who you may remember. Orchestrated that fine  73-21 effort that allowed the fanbase to realize....they were proper fucked.

Until they landed Stoops they were on life support as a program. And ou did what we did, and what everyone seems to do. Go after the hot name, and hope you strike gold. And for whatever reason those that turn out better than good, always have some shit in their closet. 

It was more fun watching them go through it. And unlike 25 years ago. Hiring coaches is a crap shoot that costs big money if you get it wrong.

Another thing, if there is some behind the scenes talk, it’s going to be kept quiet unlike the Mack/Saban debacle.

There isn't an available coach with a better resume than this :

urbanmeyer.jpg

 

Some of y'all are acting like he's going to leave Texas with an SMU style death penalty. Naw......UF and Ohio St were never under any NCAA sanctions after he stepped down. I'm good with Urban coaching Texas for a short span of 5 years if it results in a NC and some conference championships along the way. Zach Smith won't be a part of his staff, that's irrelevant. You know damn well with the disdain Urban has towards Herman he'd love nothing more than to succeed Herman and begin winning with his team as a big fuck you to MENSA.

Clemson is now a blue blood.  Anyone who thinks otherwise is not recognizing what they’ve become.


Their upcoming class is really fucking good too.

Jesus. This is what we’ve fallen to? Receiving pity from a meth head double-wide living sooner?

Not surprising.  My OU relatives are not even shit-talking anymore.  It's turned into "seriously, what the fuck guys, are you going to get your shit together or what?"

Fuck it. Let's do it. If someone with that type of pedigree can't win here, then we will truly know that the ship rotted down to the hull and will never sail again.

I’ll never understand the appeal of Mike Leach to so many on this site. No thanks on trading a 6-5 coach for a 6-5 coach.

Mike Leach is awesome....

 

 

 

 

At other schools where we can laugh from afar. Don't get me wrong I loved the fact that he thought a class at Wassu but I think Wassu is the perfect spot for him. He gets to be him and they are largely happy so he should stick around.
