An aggy criticizing someone for lack of honor is like a whore criticizing somone for sucking dick.

But if a whore criticizes aggy for sucking dick she’s spot on and probably saw something happening through a chain link fence

I understand the disappointment from Tech fans but the bullshit from Hocutt? He’s a god damned UT grad for fucks sake. How do you not understand him taking this job. 

We’re a huge school that produces tons of alumni. There’s bound to be a few whiny little bitches among them. 

Edit: I see, you were talking about Beard as the UT grad, not Hoecut.

Ummm. Hocutt played for K-State and has a masters from OU. Don’t see any relationship to UT.

Final thought: You can't spell "butthurt" without ttu

God, this reminded me that it was only a few years ago when we never had to say our area code in this town.

I have no business being the fashion police, but that’s not a good look for TJ.

No shit, polo shirt under a sport coat is absolute bush league. Are those sweatpants styled like slacks? The fuck?

If a fabulously flamboyant gay man went through my closet he would be offended by many things, but I would never dream of throwing that outfit together. ¬†I didn‚Äôt even notice the drawstrings on the pants on my first glance. ¬†Untucked polo with a ‚Äúsuit‚ÄĚ is a poor look.

Between BitterWhiteGuy from Barking Carnival and Will Curry from BON, the SBN guys are faaaar from thrilled with this hire. Not that I agree, but just putting it out there.

 

I cannot stress this enough: the only difference in the UT Hoops pay guys and your average fan is that those guys follow the sport/program more closely. that's it. i wish that we had better reporters/journalists/personalities covering our program, but we don't. if you go back over the history of these guys and their prognostications, man for man, almost every one of these guys has terrible opinions and takes on our teams and the sport in general. they're just nerdier than the average fan. that's it. it's not super surprising being that we're not a basketball school and all, but it kills me when i see the Average Joe UT hoops fan buying into anything that is opined by any of these guys. remember: BWG was basically the second or third-to-last guy to recognize Shaka for what he is, making him a more loquacious version of Cameltoe and Wescott Eberts. 

moral of the story: do not listen to the $9.95ers or the private board guys when it comes to Texas hoops. they might have the passion and the ability/want-to to follow our program and stats more closely than most, but historically their opinions and takes suck shit through a straw. in fact i'm pretty sure that at least 4/5 of them stopped playing basketball after sixth grade. you're usually better off with fading these guys than you are putting any stock into what they have to say.

I mean, I'm sorry and all, but what did you expect.  Tech is an inferior school by every measure.  I mean, nice people and all go there, but... really.  Seriously?  Beard had a choice?  I think not.

Man, comparing him to Wescott is harsh. Whatever your opinion on his basketball knowledge, at least he can write well. And without multiple grammatical errors in every post.

true dat. i might not agree with a lot of what BWG says but i do respect his passion, knowledge, and his willingness/ability to share his thoughts on our program. Wescott is just a loud mouth, know-nothing loser who's only worth following for the laughs/boost in self-esteem.

I was in Knoxville when Ogden was hired.  In the press conference (or initial interview), he said the Vols have a better color of orange.  

He's dead to me.

(Just kidding about the "dead to me" part.)

"Show" will probably = a bunch of 63 - 55 wins, but hell I'll take it.

I'll stress mightily over some of those in November-February but then be thrilled about them in March and (hopefully) April.
 

I'd have had zero problem with an Ivey hire, but Beard seems like a really solid pick. On the heels of the deeply flawed Shaka experiment, I don't mind playing it safe with an alum who's highly respected in the college game and has demonstrated a high floor.

As for how Beard will do with 5-star prospects, I don't know that we even need to find out. It's his call which type of player to recruit. The late rounds of March Madness are full of guys who will never stick in the NBA. Being a feeder school for the association seems overrated.

Thought Tech would break the bank to keep Beard but looks like he simply wanted to be at Texas.  Shaka was such a bust and took six long years to finally be rid of him.

He was pretty legendary if you think about it.  What other coach has ever faxed a player's grades to a radio station?

Luke Axtell was a douche and deserved to be shamed (Westlake Alum here)

Probably both. Who knows that Tech wouldn’t have broken the bank of Beard actually game them the opportunity to counter, just for shits and giggles.

Tech did not have the opportunity to counter.  Beard was coming to Texas, regardless.

 

It's funny to me how some detractors, some of whom were Texas folk trying to manage the letdown if Beard didn't switch;  are poo-pooing Beard's conference record as hovering around .500.

1) It's a tough ass conference and Tech was never an easy out with Beard in charge. 

2) His postseason record was 9-3, with an almost certain opportunity for more wins missed in 2020 due to Cv-19.

Yeah, I'll take factor #2 over league play any fucking day.

This motherfucking right here.

Guy was the player most responsible for getting us to a Final Four in my long ass lifetime.

He could wear a panty on his head and I would not care......and actually that would be awesome.
