As UT's president I'm not sure Fenves foresaw being in this situation this year. In many ways he's not prepared for any changes that may need to be made, be it with the AD or the head coach. In other ways, he's more than prepared and qualified. Let's break down the situation he's in, and by extension, you the fan.
Today on Inside the Humidor we continue with summer workout information. Not much new here, but at least it seems the kids are fighting through the wall they seemingly hit last week. We’ll also talk a little bit the offensive depth chart. Not much news here but all eyes are on Patrick Hudson to see if he can make some noise and shake up the depth chart a bit. Finally, there’s a tidbit on the AD that you won’t want to miss as we continue the dog days of summer.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor the Big Cigar we’ve got a little bit of team news that builds on to what we’ve hinted at in the mini-Humidor last week. Tommie Robinson has left his post and new offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert has some replacement names he’d like to pursue to help implement his offense.
In a sentence, that’s how we feel about this Texas program from top to bottom and last week was one fiasco too many as the Texas brass and to an extent Charlie Strong pulled up in their clown car, collectively honked their bright red noses, and proceeded to nearly make Tulsa University look like a destination job.
AUSTIN, Texas — Mike Perrin was named men’s athletics director for The University of Texas at Austin and will serve in that role through the 2017-18 year. Perrin has served as interim men’s athletics director since September, per Texas release today.
If you had Charlie Strong’s blank check, what would you do? Remember the movie Jurassic Park? The park proprietor, John Hammond, explained his investment in the park by ending every description with, “Spared no expense!”
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor, El Cohiba Grande has the goods on what's going down on the 40 acres after a frustrating loss on the road in Morgantown. The more things change, the more they remain the same as the young Texas Longhorns found a new way to lose a game--one in which they perhaps dominated on the stat sheet.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar, the roller coaster ride seems to have become more of a steady ascent for Charlie Strong especially considering the schedule begins to soften up. El Cohiba Grande will discuss the happenings from last Saturday’s big win, and what has changed on the macro level to help the Horns recover from what seemed like death blow against TCU.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’re coming off the bye week and a big win vs. Idle it would seem. Any time the Aggies lose and the Horns don’t is typically a good weekend for the college football universe and it sounds like the lads took advantage of the week off and much needed rest as they try to build on the momentum created by vanquishing the Oklahoma Sooners.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar, it’s a tale of two weeks really. Our sources say that Charlie Strong was all but buried but they countered if Strong could win games he shouldn’t, and could indeed right the ship, then all bets may be on hold.
