I'm just surprised you feel the need for a poll to get an idea on this...

The only thing I've seen on social media is #FireTeis. Everyone seems to be in the same boat on that. Everyone also seems to still be supportive of the student-athletes. It really isn't fair that they're having to play in the toxic culture the AD has created over the past 15 years.

I am assuming you aren't taking into account any costs associated with this right?

My general feeling is Fire Teis this year. Let the new AD come in, get a handle on things, and basically let Withers know: It's bowl or bust this season. You don't get it done, might as well pack your bags.

That way, it would minimize cost, give the AD a chance to evaluate everything on a clean slate, and make changes as he saw fit.

From experience, athletic cultures within teams have zero bearing coming from an AD. It all deals with recruiting and the bad apples within a team.

I think this is the best approach.

Honestly, if we fire Teis this year and bring in a new AD, the new AD can evaluate the performance of all coaches over the next 1-2 years and make the necessary changes then. That could even allow Withers to finish out his 5 year contract with no buyout. However, if Withers has another 1-11 or 2-10 season next year, the new AD might want to just fire him and buy out the contract for the final year.

I was going to say just the coach and AD, but went with clean sweep since we may not get the coach and AD without also getting the President.

If we go 1-11 or 2-10, we HAVE to eat the cost and let Withers walk. By this point, we've seen all we are going to see from him and his staff. Talent-wise, we are a 3-9 or 4-8 team. At that level, he would have demonstrated enough to warrant another year.

After reading a few things... I'm fully prepared to have Trauth goes as well. She truly truly TRULY does not care about athletics.

She might enjoy the games, she might cheer for our team. But she doesn't care one way or another.

I have always like Trauth for what she has done to grow the university but I am good with her going. The way she handled the racist student body president really pissed me off. The school as a whole could use new blood and vision. I am sick of being the rising star of Texas. How many years does it take to rise. Think bigger.

After that KTSW interview I would like to change my vote to include Trauth now.
