It’s called putting things into perspective. Most of our programs are winning national championships or finishing as runner-ups. It’s nearly too many to keep up over the last 2 years (volleyball, M and W indoor track, M and W swimming, M and W outdoor track, softball, W tennis, M golf, rowing, etc). This year M tennis will likely finish 1 or 2. The point is that we have a single program if compared to our other programs based on performance would be destroyed if faced on the court, on the field, on the track, on the course, etc. Of course, the previous year the program were losers. It’s not hyper-ventilation but the sad truth.
You could argue it takes longer to turn around the football program relative to the other sports but not sure if that is entirely accurate. I think the better argument is that the program was a lot worse than folks on this board could imagine. It’s obvious now in hindsight when you see how the other programs at Texas are doing.
