    It's Texas Week!

    From my perusal of SurlyBevo and discussions with my Whorn fan friends, UT's general attitude seems to be, "TCU is going to kick our ass." I kinda miss the arrogance sometimes...

    The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    A conversation meant to be in private is now public, and the record now shows Baylor University’s gut reaction was to not fire football coach Art Briles. Last week in a Waco court, portions of Baylor board of regent member Phil Stewart’s testimony, which was taken on Aug. 22, was released. His testimony re-confirms considerable dissension among board members about how to specifically handle the sexual assault allegations, the internal Title IX investigation conducted by the law firm of Pepper Hamilton, and the future of Briles. Stewart testified, “I’m talking about there was a straw vote, and he [Briles] survived that straw vote.” Stewart said he was not privy to any private meetings between certain board members of the firm. He also said once he was aware of the firm’s deep ties to Starr, he was uneasy about any potential conflict of interest between the two parties. In testimony taken and released by Jane Doe’s lawyers, Stewart said, “It’s difficult for me to express an opinion as to whether or not I believe that a conspiracy existed among either a small group of Regents and/or certain members of the Baylor administration to point a laser at one division within Baylor University upon which to develop the findings that were presented on May 12, 2016. “I have testified that I do believe that the investigation did not go far enough and determine the role of the administration in the overall process of Title IX issues, which includes the identification and the resolution of -- of handling issues of sexual assault and student misconduct, otherwise defined as prohibited conduct, far enough. I am concerned that there was an effort to protect certain members of the administration.” The person Stewart said he thought the school was trying to protect is former Baylor chief financial officer, Reagan Ramsower.

    61-58, baby! (or about $200k/point, not counting Art's parting gifts.)

    Maybe they need to work in a few more revivals down in Waco. https://www.wacotrib.com/news/courts_and_trials/baylor-legal-fees-skyrocket-amid-investigations-lawsuits-related-to-sexual/article_68e04459-f2e9-5e90-a974-62de4d142a3a.html

    It's SMU Week!

    This is a NO WIN situation for TCU. Even if we curb stomp those inbred trust-fund cokeheads, it's still a blot on our RPI. They have no class. They'll try to injure our guys. Remember the hit on Ryan Christian in 2009? We can lose. Remember 2005? We need to drop this frikkin' game.

    Texas (and other states') Elections 2018

    https://www.dictionary.com/browse/socialism?s=t So... if an institution that educates people to enter the work force as productive citizens is an example of a "means of production," and if said institution is owned by the State, it is an example of socialism, just like the public roads you took to work today, the national parks you visit to maintain your productivity, and the police and military forces that protect your capital to maintain production. So who wants to tell the aggys that they're a bunch of damn socialists? Can it be me?

    2018 College Football Variety Thread

    They don't stop there. One poster is talking about a Patterson / Dixon / Schlossnagle reunion. There are few more elegant ways to say that UT is TCU's three-way major sport bitch.
