    Maybe we were watching different teams last year. The UT I saw was complete trash that would not stand a chance against ISU's. Based on recruiting rankings, we should have crushed UK and Arky but didn't. Kentucky beat us by 27pts at home! Hell, GA State literally beat us in the trenches...

    Despite that talent gap, ISU would absolutely beat this year’s team by at least 3 TD’s. The bigger issue is that the pathway to the playoffs is simply easier for ISU than it is for UT.

    Iowa St. site

    Campbell has ISU humming right now whereas UT sounds like a 64 Dodge Dart. Had the Cyclones beat OU in the B12 championship game, they might have nudged ND for a spot in the play-offs. He has a lot of guys returning next year with another shot at the championship game/ play-off bid. We...

    Fleck is a decent coach but also an annoying jackass. He is a slightly more successful version of Butch except that he also has the incredibly annoying tendency to always somehow put himself in the spotlight. Fleck is a clown and it's only a matter of time till his ******** cliches grow stale...

    The Reason Fulmer is Retiring

    Yep, I think the ‘Plan’ likely involves Steele as HC. A possibly brighter alternative is Steele as DC/mentor and al as HC. I suspect you are right, though, and KS will be announced as our interim HC with the understanding that 6-7 wins gets him the job.

    The Reason Fulmer is Retiring

    IF we do have an AD by Friday, that will be a promising sign that somebody with clout might have actually drafted a plan before pulling the trigger. It would be very Un-UT of us to appear to actually have a plan! Btw, I would be surprised too but we can always hope that the AD is announced...

    Pruitt’s lawyer makes a statement denying wrongdoing

    Does anyone know if the verbiage related to NCAA compliance changed from the original contract to the extension? If so, we either got very lucky all things considered or someone fairly high up either knew or suspected there was enough junk floating around the program to fire with cause if...

    In hindsight, would we have gone 6-6 in a normal year?

    If Grandma had nuts, she'd be Grandpa. Pruitt could face an All-MAC schedule and probably still end up 6-6. I honestly want the guy to succeed but it just isn't happening.

    SDS: UT dumpster fire still has plenty of fuel left

    Forget championships, how about those coaches (not 100% sure about Mullen while @ MSU) has beat a more talented UT roster with a less talented roster. The difference being those dudes were all better than the clown we called HC. Good coaching is a thing but I completely understand why Tnutater...

    Pruitt to Texas as DC ??!!

    They’ll hire him as DC for $35k a year once we fire home without cause thereby picking up the rest of the tab in typical UTAD excellence.

    If you had to choose

    I believe 'Tee Martin' would be Phil's coaching pseudonym. God, that would be an absolute disaster and enough for me to welcome the Marrone coaching era with open arms just to avoid it. I'll take Malzahn or Herman all day long. Neither will likely get us to the championship game but we...

    Ty Chandler in the transfer portal

    When you only average 204 yards/game in the air a LOT of options were overlooked.Agree that Ty was a great receiver out of the backfield but Our O was so bad that everyone’s stat line suffered.

    Sark to Texas

    By past struggles, I was referring to some of the addiction issues he dealt with. I personally wouldn’t hold it against him moving forward but Sark himself may not want to deal with the incredible pressures of being a head coach. All the head coach $ in the world is worthless if you destroy...

    Sark to Texas

    I think Sark would be a great hire for either UT but, based on his past struggles, he may not want to be bumped up a peg and the heat that comes with it.

    Mock 2021 schedule

    Only UT could downgrade by firing Butch Jones. The guy was not a good coach but he was decent. Jeremy’s not even decent.
