I think a gofundme or similar would be more appropriate. Gather funds with the stipulation they are sent to the athletic department upon the removal of Larry. That would be a very public figure into how much he is costing the university in missed donations.

Two things about that:

1. It's been done before and didn't get much traction.
2. I think that sends a negative message. To me, you'd want to raise funds to promote the university (contingent on certain criteria). So if you're raising money to donate to student athlete's scholarships, it sounds much better than raising money to fire someone.

Well, it's no different than donors saying they are done donating until Teis is gone or X happens...


I mean, I suppose you can call it blackmail, I prefer to call it leverage.

you can call an ant an elephant, that doesn't make it true.


black·mail

noun: the action, treated as a criminal offense, of demanding money from a person in return for not revealing compromising or injurious information about that person.

verb: demand money from (a person) in return for not revealing compromising or injurious information about that person.



leverage is much more appropriate.

Watching this app state game tonight is just another reminder like watching Arkansas and Rutgers get beat a drum week in and week out how bad of a coach withers is

The timing on this interview stinks because of hype around the throwback... but this interview and Kirk’s thoughts are spot on! Great work Reily... keep on fighting the good fight.

I would start looking for it around 2:30, maybe a little earlier as he has to leave the stadium area before 5.

we started tailgating around 230 and noticed the plane around 3. I'd post a pic but my cell phone is only able to capture potatoes at that range. It is, however, glorious to behold

This is a great interview and is a must listen if you visit this board or are interested at all in TXST athletics. Thanks Mahidibal!

Keff has a few good pics up of the banner. It flew for almost 2 hours.
