UT, Meyer Nick Sabin, SEC discussed on Ernie Brown


They're the top three, I think I think they might be the number one. Richest yeah football program athletics program in, the country money's. No object money apparently is not but winning is an object and they, can't seem to find? A, way to do it and I don't. Understand how that's possible to me I look back at. When they needed it. Into a new. Coach and you know how, every year there's usually like one ace coach that is available. And. You, can get like an urban. Meyer Nick Sabin type. Dam but type that year that they needed a new. Coach I thought there was. Nobody like great no guarantee available and I think, that's what we're seeing now, that this is, Tom Herman is that his name yeah I think he's just an, average coach I think he's just like. When they got Charlie strong. Just an average coach I was disappointed, they didn't get Charlie strong Enough time he really was trying to recreate the, culture the gave them, three years nothing was happening and you know you can. Look back at Nick saban's career and, find that when. He took over a team you're number two you saw a difference things, started urban Meyer things? Started, range ones they get it done real. Quick yeah and they can't seem to do it at, the university of Texas. I don't understand. What is going I wondering They they lose. To Maryland again which really they shouldn't have they, were ranked twenty third, now, they're not even? Going to be in the top twenty five again this is one of the biggest schools in the country the richest program in the country and they can't even become one of the top. Twenty five so I got to wonder what is taking place at the university behind the scenes why? Do people not want. To go there. Is here's the problem you have too many mediocre seasons in a row and people start thinking well you, know what I'd rather go play for someplace. Where, I'm going. To get seen d think any of it. Has to do with that. Argument of now a. m. is, in the best conference the SEC do you think they're poaching away some players because the SEC, is perceived to, be the better conference. That's a good question I don't know I. Am just day they wanted to. Walk, this week and although that was kind of a preseason game it. Was kind of a shero away. Game yeah I bet everybody who's paying? JIMBO Fisher, that big money. God my whole job was on the line but, we won that's all, we, needed but then? They have Alabama on the way they have Clemson next week number two, and number one on the way so they're playing they're playing for it all here very quickly I think if I'm. A college football player and I'm I think the sexiest league hands down is the SEC and when? You can live in. Texas and just. Go to tech Sanam and being the SEC even though you should know you're never going to win the, title as long as Nick Sabin is there. Yeah Or did that division yeah yeah or LSU is there yeah I think it's a no, brainer to go there I, the only thing is you know UT still isn't a cool city for kids? Yeah Considered a cool place college station not so. Much, I don't have any problem with BCS I. Liked, it I lived there for a couple. Of years I thought it was a great I know but in the eyes. Of a eighteen. Year, old yeah Austin and. Sixth street that. Appeals, to him. Yeah but that's all it appeals to me I gotta tell you sixty six three. Is. Is. Eighteen? To nineteen year olds that's about it well that's there you go, that's your demographic yeah I know but. I I'm with. You the fact that. Texas can ever not win ten games yeah, unacceptably why why can Ohio State managed to pull. It off because they're really it should be, UT in Ohio State, they're, to me they're comparable except differences Ohio State actually has a good football program whereas? UT. Seems. To be mediocre year. After. Year now they've won a couple of national. Championships. But you gotta go yeah nineteen sixty, nine and what two thousand five or two. Thousand Six I don't remember Charlotte that's an awfully. Big gap in between and and then one, other opportunity they lost, Alabama, and I actually. Think that if Colt McCoy hadn't gotten hurt They probably would have won that I'm with, you on, that now since. Then they can't seem to recruit winter I can't remember was, there a coach inbetween trestle an urban Meyer was there a slump in their guy couldn't but see that's. The thing if you don't get the. Great coach right off the. Bat you go in a slump look at Michigan even though they. Lost this, week before they had Jim Harbaugh they add that, Brady Hoke or. Whatever. He was a flop down. Notre. Dame's, been a. Flop, until they, got who's not chip Kelly but anyway the guy that got now, on the hot seat but. They look okay Harbaugh's on. A. Hot seat yeah now, Notre Dame yeah but I I just I thought the year that they, were looking for. Coach the Texas needed a coach there wasn't any great options When they wanted to say they tried. To get, our browse at the time and he didn't leave, they tried to. Get. Everybody and their mother to. Go. To, the university. Of. Texas and, nobody wanted to go well it's true Nick saban's mom said she, did receive a phone call. To come coach the long Well I don't know what, their problem is I don't know why they keep, coming up short like that it just doesn't make sense I and I would like to know if it's because? Of maybe the alumni people behind the scenes who keep screwing it up nothing, more annoying than people who interfere behind the scenes coach, will tell you did you ever see the movie Friday night lights the movie back in two thousand couple of, scenes in there with the alumni or. Trying to manipulate the, coach can you imagine what that's, like when there's now millions of dollars at stake and now it's a university and you're the poor sap. Who's got a coach and deal with these idiots over here. Who probably are passing out cash? Envelopes to people and that's going to cost you everything if they get. Caught you can't control all of that but you're going to be the. Guy who gets blamed for I remember Phil Knight the founder of Nike there was rumor that not only in. His, in his. Suite could. He hear the coaches playcalling but there is also rumor that, he got To call one? Play a game really or for Oregon I had how insane is that if. That is true I wouldn't surprise I had a gentleman, in in church years ago Fred Pruitt Fred was massively big man and he played for bear Bryant at Alabama, and he told me the story said. When they were recruiting, me out of high school and, this is in the sixties there recruiting them in high school he said bear Brian came into my living. Room and on the coffee table he laid out ten one. Hundred dollar bills and said there's? Plenty more where that came from it yeah Last. Year New people know what. That's like, so yeah that's the way they. Do it I know they claim that doesn't. Happen anymore I I'm a little soft and, believing that but, you know maybe, it doesn't but whatever, it takes I can't figure out why UT can at least cheat their way to a a. Competitive team there's something nobody at. That state I felt bad, for Maryland their play at the old, RFK stadium I believe was that down now I think. It is I drove by that I drove. By that I drove by that a number of times when I was, in Washington I, kept thinking where's? The handle so you. Can, flush yeah because it just the place was a toilet is, a toilet and I noticed nobody. Was there and that's obviously that's. A big they're playing a huge name in college. Ball yet nobody was there. Still want it's a huge name but not really figured team names don't necessarily add up to that. Much art it's. Labor Day and that means Bill Jackson is here and he's checking on traffic.

Coming up next
