we should play a December game there when the students are out of town.  

Yep, or play every non-conference game there that doesn't include a big name team.

that schedule is terrible, and the FEC will be 1/4 full for a whole bunch of those games.

He has us starting only 4 players so of course we won't do very well.

Coleman, Ramey, Febres, Jones, and Sims. He listed 5.

A real coach would have this talented bunch contending for a conference championship. Shaka will have them contending for the bottom of the Big 12.

IF that isn't a fuck you to fans from Shaka, I don't know what is.  A home schedule with UAB and  Central Michigan in one season?  Holy Shit, these are the days!!!

 

Be advised, those games before NYC, that's not some kinda super sexy 8-team play in.  THose will be two garbage directional play in teams from nowhere.  

The SEC Challenge game will be played here in Austin, but I';m guessing it'll be a mid-level team like an Missouri or Mississippi State.  
 

Wow, this thing turned to shit faster than I thought it would.  Don;t get me wrong, with A&M, and Providence, and then 2 games with Duke and Georgetown.  It's not bad at all overall, just absolutely dog shit here at home.  I bet there's a reason for that.  

Get your tickets now.  I bet prices go up and the deadline come up faster.

They scheduled the two "marquee" home-and-homes with identical travel schedules - Austin in 2018, away in 2019.

That logistical AD play should really sit well with fans who barely give a fuck as is.  2019 is dogshit on paper in terms of OOC schedule.  That's all that matters.

They’re not there but full in the two NYC teams and the SEC opponent.  That slate is 7-6, 8-5 at best.  15-16 overall.

Also announced are mid-November games against California Baptist and Prairie View A&M.

Jesus christ. What a lousy schedule. I hope we can at least split with Cal Baptist & PVA&M though.

Anybody else wait until last day to renew season tickets but can't because the website has been down all day and nobody answer the phone?  Maybe they're trying to tell me something...

 The website is down because of that scintillating out of conference schedule    

 For the very first time in Texas basketball history fans can get Prairieview A&M northern Colorado Central Michigan California Baptist High Point University  McNeese State and UAB     All in one season     That kind of schedule is  going to crash our website every time    

 Coach smart is playing the RPI long game  and I am way excited.  The good news is only three or 4000 fans on average will need to witness this final shit show

Decent matchup, they did make the Sweet 16 last year.  They're overall about as disappointing as we've been in the last decade or so, maybe moreso.  

I'll be the first to propose---honorary captains for this game should be Stromile Swift & Chris Mihm.  Recreating his class role/roll.  

All that said, what an absolutely dogshit, pile-of-crap home schedule:

LSU, UAB, Central Michigan, Northern Colorado, High Point, McNeese State, California Baptist, and Prairie View A&M.  That has to be the worst home schedule of any Big XII team and that's saying something.  And certainly, by far the worst in Shaka's tenure and maybe the worst at UT overall in the last 20-25 years.  

Yeah, there's Georgetown, Purdue, A&M, and Providence.  But those four games have 4 things in common-they're on the road and we're going to lose all of them.

Just one more season of Shaka and we can finally wipe our hands clean, hopefully. What a nauseating ride this has been. Between he and Charlie, this has made me apathetic towards basketball, and I used to watch the team religiously.

hell, those two are so good i won't be surprised if Shaka is here to see the new arena open, doing just enough to not get fired for several years in a row.

we should try to steal garrett madenwald from Tennessee. Todd Wright was the best S&C guy in the country, and Barnes replaced him with the next best thing. anyone who has seen what madenwald did with Schofield, Williams, Alexander, Pons, etc should want him at Texas. their players look like UFC fighters. i miss that.

Speaking of Todd Wright, don't know if you saw but the Clippers hired him away from the 76ers a few days ago.

great move for all parties involved. I am now a Clippers fan, which A)I can't  believe I'm saying, and B)what an awesome time to be a Clippers fan!

well that sure seems like a guy who feels like he's jumping off a sinking ship. he's leaving on his own to go back to a much smaller school/program/conference. and he came here with shaka. yikes.

The line of people who need to come to eat crow on this one should look like the Hong Kong protests. I had people crushing me for even insinuating that it was a top 10 job. Glad to finally have a quote on this one.

wow. we suddenly have a seriously legit staff of assistants. shaka may have actually bought himself some time with these hires, especially if Greg Brown III does in fact commit to Texas as everyone seems to think he will. if that happens next fall, on top of these hires? shaka will be here for the next several years at least. fuck it. let's do this shit.
