    I find it fascinating how coaches, when they change jobs, go ALL IN. What I mean is that this is an Aggie and he's now got the Longhorn t-shirt and burnt orange cow hide seats (although the shelves in the back are empty because they must still be moving in).

    I know almost all coaches never end up coaching at their alma mater. It's just interesting this dynamic causing an Aggie to be all Longhorn.

    We can only hope an A&M grad has as much success at Texas as a sooner (DKR) or Baylor grad (Conradt).

    As a coach, I don’t think I would have fared well coaching for other than, or against, my alma mater.

    Craig’s looking a bit scruffy...

    Podcast with Vic:
    https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=a...Ewjxt9iN5abpAhVFnq0KHYJMAMkQieUEegQICRAE&ep=6
    What's of interest in here is:
    1) He hasn't gotten a house in Austin yet, wife has to go house-hunting
    2) We know he was born in Austin, seems because dad was a bird-colonel, probably Bergstrom AFB
    3) Discusses being spanked by UConn and then playing them the next year
    4) Discusses Mulkey and his history with her - he ain't taking none of her guff

    Yeah in the Craig Way interview he talked about someone buying out from under his wife. That was surprising to hear. My friend is a real estate agent and he's getting no income right now at all and published real estate transactions in Austin over the last month and it's so pedestrian. Really shocked they'd be in a competitive situation.

    Andrea Lloyd interviews Jody and Vic. While they wait for Vic to show, Jody makes some very good points about next fall and football. I know a lot of you on here care about this one, he says practices will be open to the fans. Apparently, Johnnie Harris has found a house but Vic and his wife still have not.

    Amazing interview and visit..I welcome the new staff n coach as I was there for Coach Conradts first game and was at the National Championship in Lexington and the shot in Bowling Green which lasted 5 seconds and kept us out of the final four in Austin the year before.... .Small plane rides to Fayetteville to Barnhill and so much more..A new era Longhorn Nation can be proud of .Hook Em

    I was especially happy to see Coach JC chat back and forth, and can appreciate the
    sincerity in her excitement about Coach Vic's hire. I agree that it's always great for a woman to get opportunities because, let's face it, this world is not fair and equal. Having said that CdC, CP, JC, Kathy, and whomever else was involved HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK by getting the best available candidate and bringing in Vic and his staff. IMO when you think of his Texas ties, personality, coaching style, knowledge of the history of the UT program and his relationship with JC... I don't think there could have been a better hire even if we would've been able to hand pick from any coach in the nation.

    EDIT: Looks like a compilation of previous interviews.

    I’ll try to post a reminder when it’s closer to air/release date. Should be some great stories...

    Vic, Jody, Gary Blair, Marsha Sharp and Mulkey.
