The Texas AD doesn’t see the need to schedule a game with Texas A&M, but sending a group to Dubai “on a football-related trip meant to explore future possibilities for Texas athletics”? No problemo.
And isn’t it convenient that Steve’s wife speaks Arabic?
He’s something else.

Watch out, citizens and residents of the UAE: Steve Patterson’s about to try to jack up your cable bill with the Longhorn Network.
You’ve never heard of “rolling a Dubai”?
They won’t go near the condo real estate on the manmade islands, will they?
They are the forward contingency of Neiman-Marcus and will dedicate a new oil well drilled by a Texas Co – that supports UT Football.
Where in hell are the players? All that perfume to buy in Dubai for Mother’s Day and these are the muthas?
Where is al Queda when you really need’em?
Maybe they’ll be able to do a little recon in Yeman while they’re in the neighborhood
Looks like some of the guys you served with are gonna give Yemen and the Floating Ayatollah Hardware store a recon today. Good luck to’em and our new “Gunboat Diplomacy” move.
In a somewhat warped way, Texas was conveniently smart to stop playing TAMU. Given A&M’s ascension in recent years combined with UT’s downfall, I’d guess TAMU would be riding a nice 3-4 game winning streak had they not eliminated the series.
It’s like your relative, who used to abuse you in sports, now realizing you have the upper hand so he conveniently stops playing those pickup basketball games or whatever with you, all while still touting his dominance of yesteryear.
I have an Uncle with whom I used to play racquetball. He would sandbag the entire time, until the last game, which he would then go all out to win. This enabled him to say “Well, I won the last time we played…” Even if I’d beat him 4 games to 1. He did this until I turned about 21 and I was able to beat him that last game too. I’m now 52 years old. “Hey Uncle Napp, who won the last time we played?”
Silly they don’t play….glad at least the Coaches say they should play. A lotta good that does though.
Bet Charlie Strong is thinking right about now…”thank God we still have Mack Brown on the payroll as a special consultant or else it’d be my ass over in Dubai right now”.
Then again, if he doesn’t turn things around soon in Texas, Charlie maybe wishing that he had one of those consulting gigs earning $500k a year;-)
“Steve Patterson continues the rebranding.” By sending Mack into a war zone.
LMAO – now that you mention it, maybe this is Patterson’s attempt at a cost reduction initiative by looking to “eliminate” $500,000 a year from the budget…..Then again, that’s giving the guy too much credit for his business acumen.
Steve blazes new trails. Goes double or nothing by sending wife on mission also 🙂
