Congrats Baylor fans.

I hate it.

Beard better be working his tail off to get to that level. The good thing is he knows the expectations. I just received this a few minutes ago, so they know.

Lol Tech is doing just fine. Capital One Cup standings keep up with all sports programs collectively and gives points based on performance (winning). 2019 was the last year of full sports without covid. #trollon

I hear ya, National Titles are hard to come by and (speaking of Beard) those standings were thanks to the 36 points they received from Beards squad making the final. I guess it's a good way for some schools to win a little extra cash. Stanford, dominates those standings every year. Including the Directors cup.

This is Pre-Rona, No?

Tech's biggest mistake was pushing Leach out. There's no telling what that fella may have done.


Attached shows the institutions that dominate the Directors Cup. For what it's worth. lol

I mean if you're not familiar, maybe you dont watch enough college sports. ESPN promotes the hell out of it. How else do you keep up with athletic program rankings as a whole?

Was refreshing to read a good article by a UT writer that wasn't a homer like most the tshirt fans on here. I mean yall act like UT actually wins stuff.... . I'll stop stoking the fire now.

I don't keep up with "athletic program rankings as a whole", because it's a pointless, and irrelevant stat. If that is your measure of a program, then aggy is the trash that....checks notes....Northern Arizona took out.

Akron, Long Beach State, and Kennesaw...I don't watch enough college sports, apparently...and I'm not gonna.

You're stoking the fire with ice cubes, bud.

Wescott is a trip. Welcome to his "Schtick". lol

ESPN also has their own recruit rankings that very few follow outside of them being added to the 247 composite values. If that is something you ant to hang a banner on, by all means. Do.

You're a trip as well, I don't think you've ruffled anyone's feathers. But, you sure like to peacock.

On another note, it appears Beard is hiring current HC's to his staff.

That's why Beard was hired, to win. I'd suggest that those CUP's are something you hang your hat on when it is out of the norm or you're Stanford. lol

https://big12sports.com/news/2011/6/1/205160610.aspx

Conference titles and National Championships are all that really matter.

Virginia added 2 National Titles to their trophy case with one being in the Big 3. Not too shabby.

Tech lost to Virginia in the Men's Basketball final 36 points (Coach is now at Texas)
Won their 2nd National Title (in the history of the school) in any sport (T&F) 20 points
Made a decent run in Omaha 18 points

Tech had 79 total points of which 74 came from these three programs. Blind Hog will find a nut every once in a while. Congrats on a good season in those three sports. That doesn't say much for the entire athletic program.

So you want to compare wins in the last, say 5 years or so? I know you're not trying to act relevant bc of a Rose bowl win almost 20 years ago...bc that would be very Aggie of you.... That said, over the last 5 years, here are the overall total wins for the Big 3 Men's Programs; Football, Basketball, and Baseball....

The sooner yall accept that UT is not near as good at sports as yall have all been brainwashed to believe, the better off you'll be! Haha Enjoy!

Lol, I love the cherry picking fellas! Texas just hired a new HC in Football and Basketball due to the last five years. Baseball is doing just fine.

It is pretty funny that Texas won their first Big 12 title in Basketball and "One" game later the search was on for a better HC. I like the upgrade, we'll see how it pans out. Actually, I like both upgrades.

Don't be so soft. Texas played for a Big 12 title in Football in 2018, won the baseball tournament in 2015 (reg season top dog in 2018), and the BB tournament in 2021. They'll be aight. Conference championships and National Titles are all that matters.

I never compared, that is the Aggie thing to do.

Well Tech retained Adams, and Beard unfriended him on Twitter. So there's that. We're also getting some very interesting assistants and most of the players except Peavey have come back. Beard was the offensive scheme, but that defense was all Adams.

Beard's time at Tech:

20-21 scoring O #136, scoring D#23
19-20 scoring O #147, scoring D #29
18-19 scoring O #162, scoring D #3
17-18 scoring O #153, scoring D #16
16-17 scoring O #172, scoring D #55

Now, Beard will have more 4 and 5 stars to work with at tu. Will that be a big game changer? Or did tu just get a lame duck? I suppose time will tell. It'll be interesting to see how this all falls out. Beard is a salesman, I'll give him that.

And yes, it's rough when that guy that finally was taking a team places, that told the fanbase and the players exactly what they wanted to hear, leaves to go to a rival. Not only leaves, but just takes off in the middle of the night, didn't even talk to his players or his fanbase or anything. Just poof, gone like a fart in the wind. Obvious character flaw exposed. I didn't realize that he did the same thing at UNLV when we got him. But now after reading about that, it's a pattern for sure. Still think we got the better end of the deal. Adams isn't as charismatic and that's ok. Look forward to that first game at the USA.

That they were/are, has never been the point. The point is that your previous list was pointless and stupid, and it remains so.

You know why Texas just replaced the football coach, and the basketball coach? Because they sucked, and everyone knew it. Tech's basketball/baseball combo has been the class of the state...many states, actually. You aren't breaking any news here, chief.

Edit: uncalled for.

Again… Everyone knows Texas has underperformed for a decade. This is not news. If Texas is in Tech’s shadow… Where the hell is Aggy, dumplin?

All good fellas, you had to have been there to get back. Time will tell on the football side of things as Riley owns that bit in Big 12 country. Baseball is doing just fine. Basketball will never be the cash cow at Texas.

Sand Aggy is pretty close to aggy.

Texas Tech is the only Power 5 school in Texas that has not been to a BCS/NY6 Bowl.

Since 2000, only five Power 5 teams have less 10-win seasons than Texas Tech

Default Beard to Texas!

To be clear, I have no delusions about where Texas football, basketball, and baseball, are right now....or have been for a while.

Baseball is in good shape, but they’ll be dogs to Tech until they change it. Obviously baylor has set the bar at basketball (regardless of what I think about basketball, I understand that it matters), and atm (and ou) had the better football season. Those things are not debatable. If you want to look at pedigrees, a lot of those things are far different. But it’s a “right now” world, and they need to get on it!

That’s just how it is...all results oriented businesses. They are making moves to get better. Will they work? Who knows! But they have a man in charge working on it. Most people can recognize that and see the difference between “sunshine pumping”, and optimism.

What I don’t get is why people think Texas is arrogant and pounding their chest about how great Texas is right now. Texas is in a terrible stretch in football and basketball, but as a Texas fan they finally look like they have the pieces in place to get back to the run of the 2000s where they dominated the college sports landscape. After DeLoss retired, Texas wandered in the desert for years until CDC came along. Texas is finally acting like Texas and putting the resources they have to use.

I guess it’s good that other fans think of Texas as that way, but it’s not Texas fans telling you how good they are right now. Texas has been terrible, but are putting the resources to use and the future is exciting. It’s time to get to work and get back to the standard of Texas. I think the whole athletic department is in step and moving that way. I know this is as excited as I have been in 10 years for what’s going on.

Agreed and the Steve Patterson hire exacerbated the ordeal. Thankful for CDC and his approach. HE has made some quality hires and I feel like these latest additions to Football and BB will be more of the same.

7/35 with incentives and bringing in two current HC's, etc as assistants. The money is finally being used as it should be. Hope it pays off.

Actually they are #2 and #3 in revenue generation.

Plus you mentioned Tech men's basketball.

One of my biggest complaints (or regrets looking back at it) have been the assistant coach hires of Strong, Herman, and Shaka. They all brought in a terrible staff that had to be upgraded during their tenure which put them behind the 8 ball to start.

I like the Sark and Beard hires, but digging deeper its their staff that is the difference between the the previous head coaching hires and the two recent ones. That is where a lot of my optimism lies in it seems CDC and the two new hires grasp the importance of using Texas resources to win and win at an elite level.
