    I feel better about giving up my season tickets now. Our collective voices were heard, or at least the lack of our collective dollars.

    So, you get rid of one leach to hire another? Doesn't make any sense but I'm sure whoever the next AD is will surely kiss your back side real good before he takes your money, unlike Patterson and you will like it. Also Mack Brown as a job and he needs to stay there.

    MB might do alright and is good at the glad handing and political schmoozing stuff with the BMDs. My concern would be him in charge of Strong. Why run the risk of him poking his beak in the program that was mediocre when he left. Better to go after some other candidates before considering MB as AD. I also want a person who is forward thinking to get this program in another conference or can help get a couple of quality teams in from other P5 conferences.

    I will say that Mike PerrIn is the PERFECT interim AD. He is a frat brother of mine & I have several UT alum friends in his inner-circle. He has impeccable credentials as an attorney, business man & former UT player. Also a great family man & person of very high character. I'm sure Mike (and that inner circle + other 'big cigars') will have a hands-on role in selecting the new AD. They will not make another mistake like SP!

    I think the days of promoting a head coach to an AD are probably gone. It's not like it was even in the '70s. You're a coach, not an administrator, not a marketer, not a fundraiser, and you really have to be all of those things. There are no coaching skills that significantly carry over into the role - only the name and the reputation, but that's why we have things like "assistant to the AD in charge of fundraising" or "president of the T-association" or whatever.

    I'm not gonna stress over the replacement candidates just yet. This is too glorious of a day getting rid of the POS who all but destroyed the very foundation of "We're Texas".

    Oliver Luck should have been hired in the first place, Patterson somehow won the hire in the interview process.

    The policies that got him fired should now be under review and changed or your still leaving cancer in the UT body.

    Jurich, from Louisville is another consideration.

    This was not just a few people on the internet wanting this done. It was a large coalition of fans, alumni, donors of all sizes, and even ex-players all coming together on this subject.

    "College Football" is still alive and well at the University of Texas. It's not the NFL and not just some brand. The people of UT still matter and it makes me glad for all of us.

    Oliver works for the NCAA in charge of "regulatory matters". It's interim until he assumes "the throne" as head of NCAA

    I gave up my tickets this year, after going to games for over sixty years. There were more than one reason, but Steve Patterson made the decision very easy.

    But now I feel...

    Debbie Yow - current athletic director at NC State - looks like she's already campaigning for the Texas job.

    Actually, Mack has always surrounded himself with quality people and I think he would be hands off with Charlie. I originally thought years and months ago that Mack would be a poor choice. Now that I start to look at it, I think he might be the perfect candidate, win back the boosters and put the right people in place to make the coaches successful.

    IF Mack understands now that hard decisions must be made and made decisively he would be a great face for UT.
    That is the only concern I have, based on his history. One good thing in his favor is that he is not emotionally invested in coaches now.
    Heck when you watch him pimp for the UT golf course you feel he is still Texas. Sally? might be a hard sell
