AS far as Kingsbury goes, well, he's a young man who is in over his head. He should have never been hired for a head coaching job. Just too young and inexperienced. He'll learn, but he's going to make a lot of mistakes along the way.
You don't care about the national title?

That's the difference: Sooner fans do. Doesn't look like we'll be competing any time soon though as bad as our defense is.

There were still a number of influential "big cigars" behind the Texas program that resisted social change in the '60s, and unfortunately they discouraged integration in the athletic sports at UT for too long. We even saw some remnants of that earlier this year from a "dinosaur" billionaire booster's comments when Charlie Strong was hired.
Greg Pruitt was to Darrell Royal what Sam Cunningham was to Bear Bryant. When Pruitt ran all over Texas in 1971 I think even the most ardent anti integration Texas fans and boosters realized that black players were needed in order to compete. I think at that point, just about everybody else had integrated except for maybe Ole Miss. Ole Miss had the unusual situation that Black players really weren't too keen on going there.

By then there wasn't much of an issue any more so Royal didn't have the pressure that he would have had just a few years earlier.

If y makes OU fans feel any better, UT is never going to field a good football team again. I like Charlie as a person, but this job is too big for him. He doesn't know how to field an offense and he won't hire somebody that is serious about offense.

What a joke. Charlie can thank Bridgewater for the salary he's collecting now. What a whiff of a hire.
