Let me clear about Tom Herman. He proved that I know nothing about picking coaches. I wanted him in Baton Rouge, but I'm so tickled that I was wrong. Herman played the two schools against each other. I want Texas to return to prominence because I think that college football is better when Texas is strong (I maintain the same things about Michigan and USC).

I think that Texas is better than 6-5. Texas played LSU tough. I wrote after that game being highly complimentary of your QB, who I think is an exciting player. Will Herman be successful? Time will tell. However, let's just say that he's off to a bumpy start in a place with little patience (except for Mack Brown, who you should have fired at least three years prior to when you did) for mediocre results. Query how this impacts recruiting. I guarantee you that it will have some adverse effect on recruiting.

 I am elated and highly surprised by Orgeron's success. I mean he was 10-25 at Ole Miss (where it's impossible to win except for if you're cheating or Johnny Vaught is the coach). He's running things like a CEO and hiring (and paying) some of the brightest minds in college football. It will be interesting to see if we can retain Joe Brady. If I have to choose which to retain, either Brady or Aranda, I'm keeping Brady. LSU is winning despite a swiss cheese defense.

It's hard for me to know how much of Texas' 6-5 record to attribute to injuries, which have been a big problem this year.  But I do know that the coaching has been poor.  It hasn't sunk to Charlie Strong levels yet, but even Mack Brown's teams were usually better coached.

Compare Tom Herman's three year progression with Matt Ruhle's progression at Baylor. Also consider that Ruhle had to recruit with the label of Rape U hung on the school and also that he went 1-11 his first year.

This drives me crazy because the NCAA will burn a program to the ground if a kid takes a loan, but coaches covering up rapes doesn’t even hit on their radar.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

I mean, this sort of thing is not unique to the college game.  In the NFL:

Assault a woman: suspended a few games
Smoke weed: suspended up to a full season
Kneel for the anthem: lifetime shadowban

I'm pretty sure he takes that as a complement.

What really annoys you is that LSU is undefeated and ranked No. 1 in some polls, while your Longhorns are bowl eligible.

What really annoys me is when people modify “unique”, like “very unique”, when unique already means one of a kind.

But this is way up there.

I'm annoyed when people tap their brakes for no reason. Also when they wont pass or move over. That annoys the hell out of me. Or two cars driving side by side 5 miles below the speed limit on a two lane interstate with a parade of cars behind them that only want to drive the speed limit. Fuck them! Those people are total assholes.
