    How do you like your new basketball coach?

    Shaka Smart has agreed to become Texas' new coach after six years with the VCU Rams, multiple sources confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.


    Not too many Shaka's in Texas huh?

    Like I said a few days ago all we need now is to force our baseball coach in to retirement, bring in Ron Washington, and then we'll have the full set of new progressive coaching.

    At a school that size the expectations will certainly be high, but a couple final 4 berths should keep a guy employed.

    Stay where I can make the final four or go somewhere else that has unlimited money but can't win anything?

    He'll be lucky if he stays 4 years, not because he's not a good coach but because the team won't win enough games and the fans/media/boosters will be screaming for his job.

    Seriously, when is the last time that Texas was relevant in basketball? Baylor and Smu seem to be more credible these days.

    It makes me happy knowing both the football and basketball programs will be mediocre at best for the next few years.

    and good for Gregg Marshall to down turn Alabama to stay a Wichita State. Sure he got a pay raise but seriously, Alabama? This is where careers go to die.

    :lol:

    How many players did Charlie Strong kick off the team last year? :hhh:

    He wants to win the right way and have good citizens.... except that shit doesn't work. Look at Florida when they won during Urban Meyer, guys getting arrested all the time. As long as they produce on Saturdays, that's all he cared about.

    Yup. You cover that shit up, keep the local PD in your pocket, pay off people to keep quiet, and when all else fails, you punish the player.

    Jameis Winston is going to be punished by being a Top 5 IF not #1 overall pick.
