Charlie Strong situation forces media to acknowledge UT Politburo's INCOMPETENCE
“Here is the man who did not make God his strength,
But trusted in the abundance of his riches,
And strengthened himself in his wickedness.”
Charlie Strong is a good Christian man. The current situation is unfortunate, even as it's become undeniable. That being said, some of the headlines we've seen this week from media outlets that spent years schilling for Bill Powers and the business as usual crowd is a sight to behold:
Bottom Line: The situation with the football program is an unfortunate reflection of the fact that UT is run by a good ol' boy network that protects its own. Perhaps if the above media outlets had insisted upon accountability when the University was creating a 'forgivable loan' slush fund, lying on its financial statements, creating a secret admissions program for the offspring of powerful legislators (and their donors), or raising tuition, the current mess might have been avoided. At a minimum, the irony is rich.
