    What bugs me more than anything is the perception that we couldn't afford to sh*t can his ass. Totally untrue, yet that's what a lot of people seem to believe.

    That is correct. Most everyone in Texas thinks that this is the case, the sports "experts" on the paper and radio around here believe the only reason he is still around is because of a $$$ shortage. Although I can't blame them, anyone with his record would be long gone around here - it's the only explanaiton that makes sense to us Texas folk.

    And what makes it worse is that Bohn can't exactly come out and say "OK, listen up folks. We were all set to fire this asshole. We had the money. It turns out that our University President thought it would be in bad taste to pay him $3MM to walk away while the state legislature was setting the budget for the entire system".

    Yup, it's very upsetting when people won't or can't come out and tell it like it is.

    I thought the article was hilarious.

    BC is a spinoff of the some of the best posters from Hornfans.com from years ago (1999, 2000ish) before it went to hell in a handbasket. ScipioTex, RPongetti, and others are all pretty smart guys. Hornfans used to be a pretty good board when it was driven by these guys (as uberposters, opinion leaders or whatever)...back then. Before TJ Ford made them all pompous about even college hoops, hf had the best hoops board in the conference with a lot of posters from most schools. it was a lot of fun.

    Most of the good ones migrated over to shaggybevo. I go there for lots of laughs in their non-sports boards. I can't really stomach the football board because we suck so bad.

    Not much upside in a killer write-up. It's not like the two teams play each other this season.
