DeLoss Dodds, the University of Texas athletic director, seems to be on some sort of mission to shift the focus away from all the negativity around the football program in Austin – suspensions, the team’s struggles, Mack Brown’s job security – to other sports or schools. Dodds recently said college basketball was in “shambles,” and the sport went on an unprecedented run of upsets and buzzer beaters. His latest target? For some reason, Dodds took a jab at Missouri in the Statesman...
quote:

“We’re going to have good years again,” Dodds promised. “Our bad years are not that bad. Take a school like Missouri. Our bad years are better than their good years. But we’ve created a standard.”

I can disagree because it is not even close to being factually true. Texas is sub 500 in the big 12 over the last three years. That is not better than Missouri's good years. Not even close.

I guess Dodds forgot that Texas went o-fer everything against Mizzou in our last year of the Big12.

DeLoss, what a fitting name for him.

Dodds, Brown and Barnes all should get kicked out of Austin. There's no reason they shouldn't have some of the best teams every year. I'm not complaining though

Can't disagree, but Texas doesn't have the kinds of excuses that Missouri has. Texas is one of the most underachieving programs in D-I football... actually it's probably the most underachieving.
