    TH lost his job more because he was a dick head than W/L. We didn't need another. I still think Sark can right this ship. He may need a new DC. Time will tell. He's a hell of a play caller. I look at this season pre and post thumb injury. Casey was just not the same and then the wheels fell off. But we were in each of these games except ISU and Arky. Next year we need better play and a little luck. We're do some close wins.

    Seems like Coach Kelly is a ready-made villain.

    We'll re-package Urban as a reptentant sinner. Have him discuss his commitment to clean and healthy living. And how Notre Dame changed his life. Working title: Urban Reform.

    Isn’t zero the number of national championship that Kelly and Sark have won? The same number.that Riley and Florida’s new, and old head coach have won.. If that is your metric, the fired LSU
    should be a hot commodity.

    For that matter, I think LSU screwed up.
    Baylor’s head coach should have been their choice.

    Yes it is. BK seems like the football equivalent of Judge Smails from Caddyshack. Him and Saban will make for interesting rivals. Kiffin and Leach too.

    I think that Sark would have been able to turn Texas around to play in the Big 12. He would probably have Texas competing for a conference championship most years. But Texas is not staying in the Big12. Texas is moving to the SEC. I don't think Sark will be a good head coach in the SEC. He was a great OC at Alabama for 2 years, but his head coaching stints have been iffy. I don't think he will ever be able to get Texas to a top SEC team. Mediocre at best. Probably more than likely toward the bottom.

    I am really starting to doubt the logic of moving to the SEC. I think it will be a long time before Texas will be able to compete in the SEC. Why leave a conference where you are 1 of the 2 big dogs, for a conference where you will have to scratch and claw just to be mediocre? The best scenario in college athletics is being the big dog in a mediocre conference. Texas had that. Now, in the SEC, Texas will be one of many.

    Oklahoma is probably also having regrets about going to the SEC.

    Sounds like Kelly must be from the Bellicheck family tree of coaching

    It was never about competing, it was about money. Texas and OU got tired of financially carrying the rest of the little 12 schools.

    We've won 3 conference titles in the last 25 years. I don't think the Big 12 has been a good fit for us. At all.

    That record of futility is on us, not on the other members of the conference.

    I agree, it's about us. Specifically: is the Big 12 a good fit for us? The track record of 3 conference titles in 25 years is a resounding NO.

    Mind you, this stretch overlaps one of the golden eras (98-09) of our program. The Big 12 was a shotgun marriage. Totally made on the fly. It was never intended to be a forever, or even long-term, home for us.

    LHN was going away regardless. They had to replace that money and so off we went.

    I get your point but it is bizarre to think of the Horns as a "big dog" when we have won the conference title three times in 25 years
    Even the 2005 natty is a faded memory for non-Texas fans
    I'll try to be optimistic about competing in the SEC though

    Looks like Lincoln Riley was not high about going to the SEC.
