  1. CDC one of the top AD's in the country per SI survey

    Kirk Bohls, one of the local sportswriters, has CDC at the top of the list, or at least his list, to replace the interim athletic director at UTx-- along with Castiglione and the Notre Dame AD.
  2. The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    There's a faction (at least on the former bf.com board) of people that claim to be Baylor fans that would celebrate any success Briles might have down the road, anywhere he might plausibly end up even TTech or A'nM. And I could see either of those schools, and maybe Ole Miss, hiring the bastage out of desperation, if the stars line up for such a move for either of them. So it's not really that tough a choice. I can't wish anyone perpetual unemployment, even a vile felon. But Briles has no business in any position that involves responsibility for the lives and activities of anyone, much less students whether in college or younger. I hope that everyone, even the Ole Misses and TTechs of this world, have the integrity and good judgment to stay away from Briles as anything more responsible than a position coach or a "consultant".
  3. That photo from the 2012 TCU - UTx game still warms my heart.
  4. VOIP phone service question

    Thanks.
  5. VOIP phone service question

    Has anyone had any recent experiences, good, bad, or ugly, with switching land lines to VOIP service? The clowns at GoogleFiber are suggesting that I do that rather than use the phone service available with a GoogleFiber account. GoogleFiber's internet service is by far the fastest I have ever used. GoogleFiber's TV service is amazing, picture-wise. My 10-year-old Sony Bravia has a great picture. But GoogleFiber's customer service is a mess, far worse than the Spectrum/TimeWarner that we dumped. And that's saying something. Spectrum/TimeWarner customer service was my previous standard for bad customer service. Anyway, wife and I have had the experience of dealing with GoogleFiber face-to-face in their fancy downtown Austin retail space 3 times, and dealing with them over the phone 8 times, and have gotten 11 different answers to the questions/problems we were trying to address. The folks we were dealing were slick salespeople, but have never given us a correct answer. Not once. Anyway again, and back to the original question: Would anyone recommend or warn about any particular VOIP telephone service? Thanks.
  6. The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    Is Baylor going down? They seem to be recruiting successfully for athletics, and they at least claim that their general applications are not suffering. They claim to be raising lots of money. Aside from litigation and settlement expense, and losing a recruiting class or two (note 1), how are they suffering long term? Note 1. BU is spending enough on litigation and settlement, I realize, that this is sort of an "aside from that one incident, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?" Sort of comment.
  7. Echols-Luper transferring again

    When I was his age, if I had had active warrant(s), I damn sure would have wanted to get away from my dad (and my mother).
  8. Echols-Luper transferring again

    Best of luck to him.
  9. Big 12 adds Fresno State and Northern Iowa

    Just about all the state universities in the State of California not named Cal or UCLA have struggled to the point of major cuts in the last several years. Too bad for California.
  10. Loovul fans can be very entertaining when outraged. Not quite outraged-Aggie entertaining, but close. I remember waaay back, I think the first time a Patterson team beat Loovul in their house, Coach P was quoted in the Startlegram (my best and usually only source for TCU sports back then; internet dumb I was) saying something like: It sure does feel good to beat them in Mama's Pizza Stadium. The squawking letters to the sports editor that the Startlegram published were beyond funny. One would think Patterson was Coach Superior mocking Florida State.
  11. TurkVision Programming Alert...

    You can tow it with your Prius, right?
  12. Bob Stoops Retires

    This. Austin paper says Lincoln Riley is to replace him. Doesn't sound like a Briles-style catastrophe for OU's program

  14. LSU tackle to transfer

    My idea is that an in-conference transfer by a player on scholarship (Baker Mayfield wasn't on scholly at TTech) costs a player 2 years of eligibility without a release, per B12 conference rules. If a player from outside the conference transfers in, he has to sit 1 year without a release in most situations.
