    1sa,

    Dolph had little to do with it. There was a brothel on I-10 in Sealy. They started putting fliers on cars at Lee HS, Memorial, & occasionally Lamar. Marvin Zindler was an idiot but seized the opportunity to shut both places down.

    The house & the 8 acres was sold to a couple of attorneys in Houston for $38,000. They were negotiating with Hugh Hefner to sell it to him for $500,000+ for a Playboy resort. When that deal fell through, they sold the building to the guy in Dallas to move it to Greenville Ave for a restaurant, which was nearly an instant failure.

    As for Dolph, if he was opposed, why did TXDOT redo HWY 71 to widen the old road and put shoulders on both sides of the road for 18 wheelers to park even though the new bypass was being built? Curious why they put a new entrance and let the old entrance become overgrown

    Thanks for the info. I've slept 3-4 times since all that went down. Guess my recollection/memory of the facts has faded a bit. I do remember Zindler was involved in his usual hyperbolic fashion. I was living on the Navajo Reservation at the time & only got the story ex post facto & 2nd/3rd hand.

    It definitely was that foolish, attention-seeking Zindler. Was he even a Texan? Both my brother and I were living in Houston at that time. My brother was very upset. I never was there but my brother would drive there from Austin from 1970 1971 while we were in high school. No ID required.

    Defense has been coming together these past few games. Lots of young guys getting opportunities too.

    Gyl,

    He was born and reared in Houston. Graduated from San Jacinto HS (I believe he graduated with Walter Cronkite). His family had one or more men's clothing stores, but wouldn't let him work in them. His "day job" was as a deputy for either the sheriff's dept or constable serving papers.

    Jack Harris, the father of Houston television who ran the Hobby's broadcast empire (not the Post) once told me that Zindler called him 3-4 times a week asking for a job at KPRC. Harris wouldn't talk to him, although he told me he once told Zindler that he was in charge of running television to provide news to the populous of greater Houston, not to provide them with a free circus and suggested Zindler call Barnum & Bailey. Ironically, Jack admitted that Zindler was the reason that KRTK was number one in local ratings. Zindler was truly one of the least intelligent human beings I've ever met or dealt with.

    Zindler heard that a bank his family had money in was in serious trouble, and their deposit far exceeded FDIC coverage. Zindler demanded a check for the full amount. A consultant in the bank gave Zindler a bank draft rather than a cashier's check. Zindler carried the draft around in his pocket for weeks, which was a wonderful thing since the bank didn't have the funds to cover the draft.

    Zindler was certainly a showman

    "SLIME IN THE ICE MACHINE!" really should not be a memorable phrase, thanks Marvin

    What few realized is that the little Texas Medical Center weekly paper published the list of restaurant violations, which KTRK people got and provided to Zindler to try to read on air. The staff would send out someone to take photos of the restaurants.

    If you were ever at KTRK during his report, you had to feel sorry for Zindler for the way the behind the scenes people talked (yelled & belittled) him while he was trying to read.

    This is going to be a real interesting year for the portal. New rules, and it all starts in a little over 10 days. We'll have to be ready for some serious roster management starting that week. You'll want those who are leaving to make that call right away, and then we'll have to be extra selective on those coming in because it looks like you are stuck with them once they come. NIL is gonna make this process even more unpredictable, as players who are happy where they are enter the portal just to look for the best free-agent offers.

    So true. Add in the fact that these kids have been told for years how great they are, and you have a formula for massive poor decisions by many.

    Texas needs to win out to stop any back crawling on a top 3 class (or higher).

    We’ll see how everything plays out but with TAM crumbling and OU on life support, between the portal and recruiting, I expect for Texas to have an epic haul.

    The portal is going to present opportunities for all teams both good and bad. We will lose some to portal and will gain some. Hope the net is an improvement for us. Bottom line is Texas has far superior talent on paper to everyone except ou but we have not coached that talent up. There is improvement this year so hope that trend continues!

    believing that texas always has "far superior talent" is a myth IMO. The gap between the best players and the rest has closed due to most athletes getting good training these days. (off season players camps).
    I also believe our coaching has gotten better especially offensive line, defensive line, and special teams. I hope we don't lose any coaches. However if colt Mccoy became an option I would find a way to take him.

    Yes; however the issue is Sark is the QB Whisperer and bring Colt in the hand;e the QBs would be an admission of failure.
