07:14 AM ET 05.15 | Rick Barnes has had better offseasons, as the line to leave the Longhorns basketball program has formed. Guard Julien Lewis is the latest to bolt. ... With Lewis gone, only forward Jonathan Holmes remains from [Barnes'] six-player recruiting class that began the 2011-2012 season as freshmen. Sterling Gibbs transferred to Seton Hall after his freshman season. Lewis, Jaylen Bond and Sheldon McClellan are in the process of transferring. Myck Kabongo entered the NBA draft. The Longhorns have lost their top three scorers from a team that finished 16-18, missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time in Barnes' 15 seasons as coach.

I know alot of Horns who only want Barnes' name on the list of those leaving the program.

When you are 16-18, it is good the players are not returning. But Ricky probably won't make the new ones any better.

and since JRM is AWOL

FIRE RICK BARNES

Line should start with the A/D, HC in basketball, HC in baseball, and HC in football.

Truth of the matter, though, this would be bad news for the rest of us. Texas wouldn't be irrelevant in these major sports if it wasn't for the poor leadership.

UT should never miss the NCCAA tourney in baseball or basketball, and they should never be outside looking in @ bowls.....kinda glad the current regime is still there

Either somebody is taking the concept of "loyalty" to heights it never should be taken, or there are some HC's with pictures of Deloss and a aTm goat in an on-campus shower doing the deed.
