It might be Herman...UH AD said Herman expected to leave within 48 hrs - KwoodTiger
And Strong still employed. A 48 hr timeframe likely too tight to fire Strong and hire Herman. Would look real bad for UT even if they could pull it off that quick b/c would be obvious they were dealing behind Strong's back. ...

re: Mood in Austin - KwoodTiger
Austin is an odd place. Have a kid at UT so have spent time there as a parent. There's a weird split between old school UT/Austin people and the newer ones that are representative of what UT has become (over the top liberal bastion, don't offend anyone, etc.). Seems to have filtered into at...

Doesn't last night prove Austin is a cesspool? - KwoodTiger
If I'm Tom Herman, and I see the UT booster overreach firsthand, doesn't this validate his booster meddling concern? ...

re: Make up y'all's mind people.... - KwoodTiger
Most happy about Jimbo news because he's an upgrade over Miles and the preferred candidate if 50/50 between he and CEO. Now, if Herman is truly part of the mix, I'd venture to say he is the top candidate for most...and was before tonight. ...

re: Trump advisors considering Jamie Dimon for SecTreas - KwoodTiger
Jamie Dimon is one of the smartest and well-regarded bankers on the planet. Doubt he would accept. In an odd twist, he's also a democrat (though he was very anti-Obama). ...

5th and 57th is a MAJOR intersection in NYC - KwoodTiger
Gridlock around city soon. How can this be allowed? Cops need to clear this out. City will grind to a halt because of these idiots. 70 more days......

Despite the fix being in by the media, the DOJ, etc., the voting public saw through it all. Truly amazing. ...

CEO = rebound relaionship...nothing more - KwoodTiger
New, different, and even better than old in some ways. But, after newness wears off, not what's needed. After watching LSU not even compete offensively against Alabama for the 6-7th consecutive year despite having a once in a generation tailback over the past 3 years, we need an innovator on ...

re: Anyone else feel like hiring CEO is going back to pre-Saban way of doing things? - KwoodTiger
CEO has beaten Missouri, Southern Miss, and a fading Ole Miss team...not exactly murderers row. And certainly not a reason to turn over the program to a coach literally no one else wants. Point is, interim coach doesn't equal head coach material whether it be Hal Hunter or Ed Orgeron. ...

Should have hired Hal Hunter instead of Saban. Brilliant. ...

re: For those "in the know" re: Tom Herman - KwoodTiger
Fwiw, spent the weekend in Austin. UT folks certainly haven't cooled on him. In fact, despite the win, the chatter leaving the stadium was that the win could prevent them from hiring Herman should Strong go on a streak. They are convinced they still have him. And, haven't cooled at all. Hop...

Feels awfully familiar. We are literally possibly about to hire a coach that no one else wants. ...

re: Seems to be shaping up like this for the time being - KwoodTiger
Anyone remember how Tiger Stadium looked for much of the 90's? Upper end zones empty under the old scoreboards...and that was with only the West side upper deck. With ticket prices today much more expensive than back then, that place will be empty if we get this hire wrong. ...

re: Seems to be shaping up like this for the time being - KwoodTiger
You have to make either Herman or Jimbo say no to $8MM/year. Too much riding on this hire and too much invested in the football program at this point to go cheap. Can't be penny wise and dollar foolish. Jimbo the safer pick and better fit. But, so much upside with Herman..esp if he retai...

re: Blueprint for Coach O if retained. - KwoodTiger
If Coach O is retained without winnning out, it's an admission that the administration fired Les without having Herman or Jimbo secured. Can't fathom how those fools made that call that early without a secure plan in place. The real screw up was last year. Because they caved to media pressure, et...
