"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
I'm not about to panic over losing one commitment. But losing recruits to Baylor and TCU irks me.
This whole situation bears an eerie resemblance to what happened at Tennessee... and it's frightening. Follow me, for just a minute...
Reasonably successful, long-tenured head coach. A transcendent talent at quarterback. 10+ wins every year, but couldn't beat biggest rival. One MNC, and flirtation with another. A steady decline in on-field results. Lost recruiting battles. UT. Orange and white.
We're on the exact same road as the Vols, and you see where they are as a program right now. Trust me, my wife is a Vol, and these past two seasons have mirrored each other... as fans, we have high expectations for our storied programs only to be bitterly disappointed in the results.
The difference is, we're Texas... we have access to talent and coaches that Tennessee can only dream of. Why the f**k can't anyone in a position of power see that we are a sinking ship, a punchline in a bad joke?
I don't have the answer. But I truly believe it's time for a new regime... a new way of doing business on the field, a new attitude... players and coaches that won't settle for 7-5 and an ass-kicking by OU every year. This is beyond a one-year or two-year blip... we're in serious danger of falling into a multi-year abyss that may be unrecoverable. That should be un-f**king acceptable to everyone on the 40.
