Quote of the day

Tell me you’ve lost your football team without saying you’ve lost your football team.

Texas is on its first five-game losing streak since 1956.  Sark is in his first contract year, so I seriously doubt his job is in jeopardy, but when you’ve got money and a willingness to burn it — remember, it just cost the school $24 million in buyouts to get rid of Herman — I should never say never.

  1. Speaking of how this game ended, you know winning is a new feeling when time is out, you’ve won, the final is…final, and you’re frantically running around screaming maniacally trying to get your team back on the sideline.

    As for Texas, they aren’t even in the conference yet and already they are watering down the brand.

    Maybe if the fictional Matt Foley had caught that pass he wouldn’t be thrice divorced. Yeah I’m riding this for a while.

      All those former SWC teams need to go live in a van down by the western bank of the Mississippi river and stay the hell out of our conference. Texas, Okie, Mizzou and Arky, bunch of heathens.

  2. Sark is a damn good college offensive coordinator and QB coach who likely doesn’t have what it takes to be a successful head coach. He could have made a ton of money in Tuscaloosa with the best toys to play with.

      I think Sark id good enough as a head coach. He has to completely change the culture, and yeah I don’t think that’s going to happen.


      • I just don’t see Sark as the kind of guy who is going to change a culture. Does Texas have culture problems? Yes. Would you hire Steve Sarkisian as the guy to fix it? I wouldn’t.

          That didn’t take long….

          Maybe find a guy who is from Texas who is the Son of a coach who actually was an outstanding player at Texas. I think that formula is working for us.


          • I think you’ve absolutely hit on something. Ray Goff is a Georgia man through and through, but he was so ill-prepared to take the job (he had never even been a coordinator). Jim Donnan was a darn good Xs and Os guy but never emphasized the culture (he didn’t realize what a great place he was in until he no longer had the job). Mark Richt had been groomed to take the job, was an excellent X and O guy, and had changed the culture (eventually, the program needed a reboot for whatever reason). Kirby has it all – the Georgia connections of Ray, the X and O prowess of Jim (albeit, on defense), and the training and culture focus of Mark.

            We’re seeing it all play out now.

  3. They still believe letting Mack Brown go was the best thing for the program and can’t understand why Saban didn’t come over. I really want to see Texas v Florida in a bowl game.

    Here’s the thing, if Sark does what he should do, which is eject the half of his team that’s infected with the entitled loser culture left over from Herman into the Transfer Portal so he can rebuild with his own recruits and carefully selected transfers, next year as a bridge year could be worse.

    He definitely should have done a better job of weeding those guys out before THIS year, so yeah, ultimately, he may be screwed no matter what. Man… Texas is the worst. I really wish Sankey would’ve taken Okie State instead of these assholes.

  5. Sad to see what this program has become, but an entitled attitude, a revolving door on the HC’s office, and a bunch of fart-sniffing boosters who are more concerned with the players singing “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” than actually winning games will do that to you.

    Sankey just thrilled about Riley & Sark this weekend. But agents bleeding schools AD budgets via their “xyz hot name” clients’ salaries is now apparently a new thing? Texas, where big oil & tech Boosters still wag the dog on coach choices…good luck & giddyup.

    First Big12 road win for Kansas in 13 years. Pathetic.

      The 5 Kansas fans at the game were mocking Texas with the SEC chant. Can we still cancel the deal?

        I think we can cancel the deal. Texas and OU haven’t actually joined the conference yet. Might be a lawsuit but since they haven’t made the move yet both would be in exactly the same position as before. Damages? Pay ‘em some dough and tell them to go f*ck themselves. I’m afraid Texas will end up screwing up the SEC just like they did with the old SWC and now the Big 12.

    Herman is a good coach. What’s wrong with Texas is systemic and it will take more than just a coaching chance it fix it. If they end up firing Sark, particularly if it happens in only 3-4 years, Texas will have a lot of trouble hiring a top quality HC to replace him.

    Man, what a target-rich week for SEC Shorts. Harsin thanks Sark for moving everyone’s attention away from his collapse at home. Mullen’s checking his contract to see if 70-52 over Samford after getting blown out by SC and punked by LSU and Kentucky meets the criteria for cause. And Jimbo’s wondering how he managed to be only +11 against Ole Miss’ defense, which was hilarious but so lost in this week’s wash.

    Hey Senator help us non lawyer people out. At what point are Steve and Dan guilty of gross negligence and fired with cause?
