Texas football has hit such a lull lately that it almost feels undignified taking jabs at the Sooners’ rivals to the south. Of course, DeLoss Dodds and Mack Brown start flapping their gums, and it gets awfully hard to resist.
These days, though, you don't even need an OU fan to beat up the straw men trotted out by Gasbag and Gassier -- not when Bevo backers are more than willing to do it themselves. Unless you’re talking to someone inside the well-heeled cabal of boosters who regularly play in Dodds’ foursomes and get their boots shined by Brown, I reckon plenty of UT fans share Scipio’s sentiments about marking time until the two bigwigs step down. Honestly, I can’t say that I blame them.
Brown may still have the charm reserves needed to woo high school recruits and their parents with the best of them, but he has devolved into a punchline as a coach. Meanwhile, Dodds continues to strengthen his bid for the title of “College Football’s Preeminent Producer of Intellectually Dishonest Bullshit.” (Watch out, Jim Delany.)no comments
