Texas AD Chris Del Conte

I'm sure Perrin didn't handle it well because in the end he was an amateur AD.

It is distressing that we weren't able to land at least a big name coach.  The timing was bad, for one thing.  For another, we actually have to compete for recruits in the state of Texas now.  Our facilities and player-training tech were way behind.  I don't think there were that many coaches anxious to follow Garrido's and Gus' footsteps in a program that had fallen behind in many ways.

Late-stage Dodds-Plonsky syndrome, followed by a couple of years of NBA leadership, really, really fucked us in the ass.

CDC has probably done about as well as could be expected so far, because he really inherited a mess.  Hopefully, he has us in a sort of steady state from which he can be a real AD, not a triage specialist, and get us back to winning.

Good points but we'd have been lucky and happy if Patterson's reign was just "NBA leadership" level.   Instead, he was a lying, disingenuous snake-in-the-grass piece of shit.   The most despised and loathed person ever associated with Texas athletics.   And, yes, that includes Polonsky.

Not sure if it was mentioned here already but CDC hinting DKR is getting LED lighting like this for next year:
 
 
 
 

That’ll be sweet as fuck for all our early afternoon games dictated by TV broadcast schedules.

So I got a little worried after listening to CDC on the podcast with fuck chip brown as he said he wouldn't be fair to have herman on the hot seat even if he has a "meh" season this year? Now they never said a win total as the floor as I assume if herman shit the bed and won 6 games he's gone but what got me worried was CDC didn't just brush off the question he went in full detail of what herman inherited and it's only year 4 and how hard it was for him to let go of his lifelong buddies(cue up the timey violin). Like I had a completely different view of CDC and maybe he can turn into a hard ass behind closed doors but if Texas win 8 games next year i'd want to see us go Hire a Urban Meyer and i'm afraid CDC would keep herman another year.

 

Anyone else listen to his interview?

I haven’t heard it, but there’s absolutely no reason for him to say anything publicly other than that he believes Herman is the guy, and he’ll have a long leash here.

Anything else would really undercut our recruiting and player retention efforts and would only hurt the program with no benefit coming from it. 
 

I wouldn’t put any significance on his comments. He said nice things in Shaka’s defense just a couple weeks ago and people freaked out about that, yet it’s looking more and more like Shaka will he fired by the day.

Assuming the team chemistry improves and program stays clean, Mensa probably returns for 2021 season with an 8-4 regular season record or better...

Correct.

Anyone expecting CdC to go all Surly in public on anything about UT isn’t being realistic.

But I also wouldn't expect a full blown defense of Herman either and he went way into saying Herman inherited Charlie's shit and we need to have perspective and went overboard about herman letting his bros go and this is his first season with a new staff? You expect THAT much? I don't expect him to be all surly but I do expect maybe a "Tom knows he has a opportunity to right the ship and that's our plan and at The University of Texas the bar is high and this is a prestigious job and we all are approaching it that way every day".

Any hint of a hot seat from the AD in public is bad for the program. Especially ahead of a season where, if it goes well, things could be totally fine. No reason to torpedo recruiting.

Nah fuck that. I'm cool with the AD not adding coals to the hot seat fire and allowing Chip "shit stain" Brown (fuck him) to stir up shit in the program. Anything less than a full blown defense allows that.

It would be cool if just one coach in the future just says "next question" in the middle of Chip's classic storytelling bullshit adventure "questions". Get a fucking clue and move to Waco or something dumbfuck

Yep.    Right now CDC's full attention should be on firing Smart the day after the last game in a couple of weeks.  

I bet some 1A or 2A girls playoff basketball games up in the Panhandle  outdrew the attendance last night.

It's damn near impossible to take anything said by somebody who advocates hiring Urban Meyer seriously.

Then CDC will be 2 years too late in firing him.

Well, you just know whatever's coming on their twatter is going to be complete shit.

Even the most vocal, but sane, political twitters don't announce "BERNIE BRO!" or "Proud Liberal."
