"College hoops junkies like to joke about Barnes, especially when it comes to nuances with X’s and O’s, but there’s no arguing that he’s had a very successful tenure in Austin. Barnes just completed his 15th season in charge of the Longhorns, and his accomplishments speak for themselves: He’s made a Final Four and two other Elite Eights, won 30 or more games in two different seasons and won 25 or more games seven different times. This past season was the first time since Barnes’ debut campaign in Austin that he didn’t win at least 20 games. Given Texas basketball’s relative standing in relation to the football program, in terms of both administration and fan interest, this is a more than acceptable performance."
"That said, the program is definitely trending the wrong way, as the departures of numerous assistants and some questionable early entry decisions have started to grease the skids toward mediocrity. The Longhorns have won a total of two NCAA tournament games in the past five years, and they’re looking squarely at back-to-back missed NCAA tournament berths in 2013-14."
"It begs the question: Facing another season of diminishing success and fan interest, will football-focused AD DeLoss Dodds finally reach a breaking point with the basketball program? Because if so, there’s a very, very obvious target to go after: Marquette’s Buzz Williams."
BRING ON BUZZ!!!!
- God Bless Texas
So depressing. Where is DeLoss Dodds? Where is Bill Powers? Where are the big money people? Does anybody out there give a damn except the fans and alumni?
So assistants leaving to become Head Coaches is a bad thing?
Lots of love going around for Brad Stevens and Shaka Smart. Both are great coaches and deserve the attention. Gregg Marshall getting some run after the Shockers run to Atlanta.
But Buzz has been my guy for the last couple years. Strong results in a Power 6 conference, Sweet 16 the last 3 yrs including this yr's run to the Elite 8, has recruiting ties to the state, chaotic defensive style combined with a "free-flow" offensive scheme.

Shacka, Stevens then Buzz. Bierce breakdown is correct.
