3 Reasons #Mizzou Football's recent shenanigans wouldn't fly at U.T.

"A fool has no delight in understanding,
But in expressing his own heart."
Proverbs 18:2

As we've watched the situation at Mizzou unfold, we've tried to imagine a similar situation at U.T.  While U.T certainly has it's share of #sjw insanity, we don't think it would spread to the Football program.  Here's why:

1.  Charlie Strong:

While we've had our issues with Strong's in-game performance over the past two years, Charlie Strong deserves tremendous credit for his willingness to cut players who aren't committed to the team.  As Breitbart reported, many (if not most) of Mizzou's players did not support this nonsense.  Whatever the man's other flaws, Charlie Strong would NEVER tolerate players abandoning their teammates.
2. Red McCombs: 

Watching the #Mizzou situation unfold from a distance, we can't help but wonder: Where are the boosters?!?  With Red McCombs (and, to a lesser degree, Joe Jamail), U.T. Football has very wealthy boosters who wouldn't allow some transient group of players to undermine the team they've been supporting for decades.  In the (unlikely) event Charlie Strong failed to cut the offending players, U.T. Football's wealthy benefactors WOULD NOT tolerate players undermining the program.

3. Dan Patrick:

Finally, even if both the coaching staff AND the boosters fell down on the job, there's the Texas Senate.  In our interview last week, Lt. Governor Patrick made clear that the Senators are getting sick of the nonsense emanating from the U.T. politburo.  If U.T. were to appease the #SJW lynch mob the same way #Mizzou did, they'd be starting World War III with the Texas Senate more so than they already have.  #ElectedOfficialsMatter

Bottom Line: There are institutional factors at play at U.T. that apparently don't exist at Mizzou; between the coaching staff, the wealthy boosters, and the conservative Texas Senate, this type of appeasement simply couldn't fly.
