It really doesn’t matter if this story is true. In the best Lyndon Johnson fashion, the value is in the distraction it provides.

“Pulp Fiction” reference for the win.
Some headers just write themselves, don’t they?

Interesting that the story doesn’t come out until there are 3 losses on the board. Whether true or not, sound like Butch is losing friends. If they were undefeated, you know this story never comes out. Now, people are looking for ways to undermine him.
Exactly, someone wanted some ammo and the right time to use it. Boom.
My favorite quote about LBJ actually came from Nixon, when his close advisors mentioned during a meeting LBJ’s sheer ruthlessness and hatred of JFK. Nixon replied: I’d do just about anything to become president….but I wouldn’t kill for it.
One of my favorite quotes: ” My Momma taught me to only say good about the dead. Lyndon Johnson is dead. Good.”
I’d always heard the sheep version of that LBJ story. Much classier, don’t ya think?
Zed’ dead baby, Zed’s dead. So is Sgt. Carter’s career in Knox (provided we close the casket on him Saturday).
Raise your hand if you heard Kevin Butler, on the post game show, call for Butch’s firing if they lose to us on Saturday.
“absolutely”. Why so much effort booch?
All I can think of is Bo Pelini.
Never thought of the similarities but, damn, from the physical down to the rest of it, they could be brothers.
Is UT still running a deficit? The last I saw they were 110 million in the red. They cant afford another coach on the payroll who is no longer the coach. They lose to us on Saturday and attendance is going to drop back off a cliff.
