    Comment from long time Texas coach today

    At the HS and college level : ?letting Arnett make decisions without an AD in place is like letting a six year old run around in a room full of boxes of live hand grenades. Now that the other coaches and players are landing in other programs, expect the portal to really heat up?. ...end quote.... The guy who made that comment is pretty low key and stated given the circumstances he was initially rooting for Arnett to succeed.

    My own opinion is :

    Looking at this decisions that have been made with the staff and program, you can only draw one of two conclusions : either Arnett is the dumbest guy to ever hold a P5 level job, which is very possible or........he is just mercenary and he has 9 million guaranteed and he?s following the orders of boosters and influencers above him and really doesn?t give a damn as long as he banks 9 million.
    That?s also possible. But given these are his colleagues and he?s supposed to have some integrity that may be even worse.

    I think that?s a bit of a hyperbole but I agree to an extent. I think promoting Zach without an AD was too much. Was really hoping we?d have one in place by now

    It's gotta be 2). Arnett is not a MS native, I can't believe he truly thinks we need all MS guys and no guys with ties to other states. I also can't believe he thinks Bumphis is an upgrade over who we had, or that Miller is worst than Friend. This is 100% boosters playing AD and HC. Shame on Keenum for letting this happen, and shame on Arnett. he's not who I thought he was.

    I’m sorry but none that makes any sense to me. If we would have landed KB, he would be the smartest coach we’ve ever had. I serious doubt he’s just trying to collect a check and not be worried about his future. It’s sounds like you’re saying he doesn’t care. And who knows what CZA is thinking for OC. Bobo could have been just a bunch of BS to mislead people.

    I just don’t see CZA as a sellout to boosters either. It’s his name on the line. I figured he would get to bring in who he wants, not the AD. And if I’m not mistaken, wasn’t Bump close to coming at one time under Leach?

    I initially thought it was stupidity and arrogance, but it’s probably a combination. 9 million guaranteed would make a lot of people follow orders. The comments on 1 and 2 are mine, the initial comments of a six year old with no ad are the Texas coaches.

    I see nothing controversial about stating the obvious.

    Well he wasn't going to post when we were in negations with hiring a guy of Briles caliber. Can't spew the vitriol to the effect he wants.

    You just called Arnett dumb, a mercenary with no integrity, I would say that's controversial and I'd sure like to know the genius coach that said that. Maybe we should hire him?

    No I said arnett is dumb and a mercenary. The former Texas coach said he was like a six year old running amok without an ad, he also said expect many more players to leave.

    I didn't say anything about Miller, liar. And last I checked he's still here. You may have said he was leaving or fired but can't keep track of your lies. But I didn't say one word about Miller.

    I stand behind everything I said about how it went down with Drew because that's the truth. He was up front and we were, PRIOR to the bowl game. You can lie all you want to spread your feces. I'm not here to post what I know for you but will combat falsehoods.

    Guess we'll just have to wait and see all these many players leaving.
