    I acknowledge the point. It just (to me) is a distraction. Popovich has been ranting for a few years now, but he's got titles in his pocket (none lately). As I said, I'd be of the same mindset if it was a conservative coach who came out on a pro-gun rant and then failed to produce over the years. He may have just done it once and then got a talking to, but it's out there. Like if Sark came out and said "I just don't know how the team is going to handle Biden as POTUS, but we'll try to go forward".

    If you say it once and move on then it's not a distraction.
    Herman created a distraction.
    Not Shaka.
    You just can't quit crying about it. ;)

    There's some people that can get away with saying something once and others who can't.

    Thankfully though it'll be free to UT as well since he left on his own.

    Between flushing He-Man down the sewer, and getting rid of Shocka-Con for free, CDC has done a great job clearing out dead wood.

    And does each one of those beer taps represent a first round exit for a Shocka-Con team?

    Why does anyone care if someone else claims that someone lives rent free in your head? It's kind of...weird.

    At least it won’t be in Austin. If he was still in Austin, the free rent would become a migraine or a tumor.

    What?
    Stupidest thing I've ever read.
    I've literally sent a mass email to my entire company asking them to quit sending me emails filled with their political opinions.
    Only to have the owner tell me, "Well, you know, freedom of speech".

    I don't know. The "trolls" part of that headline seems inaccurate. Why wouldn't a basketball coach love coaching at basketball crazy place? Texas IS far from basketball crazy.

    Thats not at all what he said. When asked the question why he left I thought his answer was about as pc as he could do. Did you think he would admit it was because he was about to get fired? The writer of the article said Texas was a football school not Shaka.

    Most larger companies I know of will not allow mass emails with political or religious content. Sure, you can send it but be prepared for a company response.

    The bigger question to me is why a basketball crazy place would see the 6 years at Texas and think, "Wow! We really need this guy!"

    Excellent. CDC is doing a whale of job bringing in good hires.

    I know many of you are still sore that Shaka dumped us for a basketball school up North. Don't feel bad. Beard is also a great coach, and we'll be bound for the Final Four in no time.

    Probably. If this Beard thing is just an April Fools joke, then we should still pursue him. Who else are we going to get?

    When he made those comments after Trump was elected, I knew he was too dumb to coach at Texas. I was 100% right.

    I will use the term distracted. You’re here to coach winning basketball, period. It appears it is not possible for that particular minority group.

    To be fair, I heard some of that crap from white coaches as well.

    Shut up and coach!
