I blame your new profile pic.  

That's what did us in at the end of the day. That motherfucking Pizza Hut employee that thought that pizza was acceptable.

Check out this stat line

 

 

1A8A3DA2-C2FA-4E32-9615-90B2BDAA0664.png

23 turnovers and only 5 offensive rebounds, which leads to...

they got 27 more shots than us.

lost to a team that shot less than 30% from the field.

Shaka is the highest paid Pizza Hut employee of all time.  That’s not nothing.

ACU the only team in the past 11 years to shoot less than 30% and still win an NCAA tourney game

ACU was in Division II only seven years ago and only became eligible to compete for Division I championships in 2017.    Other than football and track, they kind of sucked at everything else in D2.

It is a terrible terrible loss. One that will follow me for a long time courtesy of my ACU sister and BIL.

That said, I knew this was going to be a dogfight as soon as I saw Tech only beat them by 7. And Arkansas didn’t blow them out either. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they beat UCLA. They are so scrappy.

lol they fucking suck. Any team with a decent big should beat them by 20... we have 3 decent bigs.

Chris Beard with Texas' roster would have beat this team by 25 points tonight.

ACU gave Tech all they wanted in the early season matchup with the Red Raiders winning 51-44. McCullar was still out from his high ankle sprain. We did get 10 points from highly touted Freshman Nimari Burnett, who is no longer with the team( player choice,) so maybe that's a statement about how Beard would coach Texas' athletes differently. I don't think he'd trade rosters with Texas, regardless.

Beard gets right to the point at the beginning of the video.

A silver lining for me is the previous decade of watching Texas athletics has almost completely numbed me to this loss. I basically feel nothing.

I am looking forward to bacon, eggs and cinnamon rolls for breakfast however. I never have breakfast during the week so weekends are a treat for me.

That Paul Hiepler dude can go fuck himself.. you didn't beat us, you sat on the bench all game long looking and acting "intense" going crazy and then you go and start throwing up Horns down when your teammates win the game.

Shaka needs to go, fucking embarrassment of a loss.

I didn't even watch because I barely care about anything except volleyball and baseball anymore.  Football and basketball are going to need to earn my interest back.

90% of the posters on this board were fellating shaka after the b12 tournament just 1 week ago.  2 wins either side of a forfeit, had to give him credit, 1st b12 title evar.

a very small number of us were shit on for saying "show me the 2nd weekend".

shaka's agent has a half-dozen on cells on his breakfast table that were ringing all week and are now dead silent.  this is now very easy for cdc.  just reassign him with a red stapler to an office in belmont and let the contract run out.  no woke controversy.  no buyout.

disgusting and pathetic.

laughing stock of the country.

we play hero ball, it's all we do and it bit us in the ass.

this is the reason he can recruit.  he does not enforce any system, only a few occasional directives.  he lets the team play street ball with no discipline or fundamentals, and the players love it because for them it's fun and they feel like they are showcasing their prowess for the league.   it's not about winning or representing the school or delivering value in return for their education.  it's not even about monetizing the brand.

shakaball is a cesspool, worse than anything we've seen in football since the depths of the mcwilliams era.

and it was easy to see this happening after watching certain games this season, and i point directly to the 2OT loss to okie lite where we didn't score for 10 minutes and shaka did not insert himself in to what was happening.  zero coaching at all.

This is satire, right? 

If someone had told you that ACU was going to shoot 30% from the field, 17% from 3, and only attempt 12 free throws, you would have guessed that UT wins by 40.

Last night was a near statistical impossibility. Scrappy or not, that's not a very good basketball team.

No they weren't. A small minority decided to start barking.

Abilene Fucking Christian.

Moved to D1 in 2013.

Think about that.

Unacceptable. 

Shaka is horrible. 

Ironically, 2013 was the last year Shaka won an NCAA tournament game.  Greg Brown was, what, a 5th grader?

No. There was a loud minority of people prematurely claiming victory for the season but a much bigger group of posters were happy about the tourney championship while understanding it was not the ultimate goal for the season.

They’re extremely good for who they are. Even in the Southland, winning 20 games three years in a row is not luck. They are absolutely outclassed by major teams and Texas should have run them out of the gym on athletic mismatches alone. ACU played the exact and only game that could have gotten them a win against Texas. That stat line tells me Golding’s team did exactly what they wanted to.

Yeah I was happy to unload the 800 lb gorilla of the big 12 tournament even if it came with an asterisk.

That did not mean Shaka was all the sudden a serviceable coach for the school. As much shit as we give Ricktator he never lost to 11 seeds lower and he actually managed to win more than 0 tournament games...

Its time to move on because we peaked

UCLA will win by double digits.

Rick actually lost to an 11 seed in 2001. Then he proceeded to go on the greatest run that Texas basketball has ever seen (before it all fell apart).

Any advice on how to beat Abilene?  Seems they are giant killers.

impose your size on them.  take care of the ball.  play solid defense and don't foul/jump on the fakes.  their offense is literal dog shit.  yall better not lose to ACU or your program will go into nuclear meltdown.

Have your kids 7th grade coach watch 5 minutes of film on them and let him coach the game. That would be enough to win.

Losing to an 11 seed != Losing to 11 seeds lower.

I think he meant 11 seeds lower 14-3 not an 11 seed

Yeah, I think at least one 11 has won almost every year since the tournament expanded. It sucks to go down to an 11 but 6 v 11 is never the mismatch that 3 v 14 nearly always is.

But but but we have Final Four talent. Bullshit

Lol.  Read the room, buddy.  Now is not the time to white knight for Shaka and blame it on a lack of talent against ACU.

And, yes, if a good coach had been developing these guys the last couple of years, it would have been Final Four talent.  We have, bar none, the most athletic front court in the country with Sims, Jones and Brown.  

We are one of only three teams in the country projected to have multiple first round picks in the NBA draft this year.

We are an extremely experienced veteran team with only one freshman, in the era where all the teams that get high level recruits are constantly really young with lots of freshmen.  In raw talent and pro prospects, plus even experience, we basically have the second most talented roster in the country after Gonzaga.  

Shaka screwed the pooch big time.   I knew he’d waste this year and keep us from being a national title contender like the talent would have justified, but before the season I thought he’d at least get a Steve Alford or Jeff Capel  dead cat bounce where we finish second to Baylor in conference and reach the Sweet Sixteen or something (before it all crashes down next year).   Instead, we got another first round exit in the most embarrassing loss in program history.  

He gets zero benefit of the doubt about anything.   If anything, I suspect Jones, Brown and probably even Sims are underrated as pro prospects because of his shit coaching and they’ll go on to have careers that make this look even worse in 5 years.

Was just coming to post this also...complete horse shit. Shaka needs to be shit-canned today.

Honest question: not what you want to happen, but what you think will happen.  Shaka fired or nah?
