Go big, or go home.

I see Sark has quickly embraced one of college football’s greatest traditions, living vicariously through another program.

That ought to carry him through a season or two in Austin.  Maybe.

    Unless he discovers some of that Texas moonshine.

    Dana Bible and Darrell Royal are rolling in their graves. Time was Texas had a supercilious sniff at Bama.

      This made me look up Royal’s record. He went 17-13 in his 2 stops before Texas. At Texas he won about 63% of his games with only 1 bowl win in his first 6 years before he gets his 1st national championship. He then goes on a 4 year championship drought before reeling off 7 conference championships in 9 years along with 2 more national championships.

      I don’t see how he even gets hired at a major program these days, much less survive long enough to go on the great run for which he is remembered.

        You can do that with just about any legendary coach – Bowden, Osborne, Beamer, etc. Took all of them a while to get their system in place and catch on. But the money and ADHD is such that every coach needs to win now or else.

    What time is it over in Austin right now?

    Their history is a lot closer to ours than to Bama and even that is not the best comparison. They are basically in a 10 year Ray Goff period without the 1992 season or the NFL draft picks. It is a wild situation. It Means Oklahoma gets to go to the playoffs every year unless they lose 2 games, I wish we had it that easy.

    Saw a tweet that said firing Herman for Sarkisian was like driving past a Bennigan’s to pull into a Chili’s.

    Texas’ oil, tech & steak heirs justifying an HC hire is a site to see. A guy that bat .500 as an HC in the Pac12. Good luck to the program that has been 3rd or 4th fiddle in their own state to Tex A&M, Baylor & even TCU over last decade, let alone their own conference.
