08:12 AM ET 02.13 | In more than 30 years on the job, DeLoss Dodds has hardly endured such trying times. The wolves are at his football coach's door after a 22-16 three-year record. If Mack Brown is looking for sympathy, he won't get any from Rick Barnes, whose basketball team is threatening to become the first in his 15 seasons to miss the NCAA tournament. ... [And even Augie Garrido] is receiving more scrutiny after his injury-riddled baseball team failed to qualify for the postseason last May. People are incredulous about how this could happen with every conceivable advantage the flagship school touts. "We're going to have good years again," Dodds promised. "Our bad years are not that bad. Take a school like Missouri. Our bad years are better than their good years."

Seems to be at that age old people get, when their "I don't give a !@#$ what people think of me when I say stuupid @#$%"

But hey, UTx won national championships in golf and volleyball last year.

There was a time when I'd say that such smug smack was out of character for you, Joe.

Yeah, and if he thinks that puts Texas' programs in a favorable light, he oughta resign.

That is just what I was thinking. If you have to make yourself and your fans feel better by dumping on Missouri, then you truly are at a low point.

This was one of the funniest articles I've read in a long time! One of my favorite quotes:

'If you win all the time, it's not good for the coaches or the kids. You've got to learn to appreciate it.'

Heh. It's been time to flush that toilet for a couple years now.

It's a reflection on both schools...arrogance vs. ignorance

It's not smug smack. It is brutal honest fact.

Texas: You got more money than any other school in the Big XII ( both the old Big XII and the watered down new Big XII) and you STILL can not win games. Then want to bad mouth another school? If any other school in the Big XII had Texas money, they would have more wins than Texas (both current and former members). Based on your record, many of them do, without Texas size money.
