    Some advice for you all. Stop probing the wound. Let it go. The problem can't be fixed. If you need therapy get it. But it's time to move on.

    Speaking of someone who can't move on and needs therapy...
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Bonus points to SU for keeping the thread going. In the end, this thread might be more of a monument to him than anything else.
    Unfortunately we live in a world where words have meaning.

    Fertitta is not happy with UT and the Big 12... I guess when you are a billionaire you can just tell people how you really feel.

    Tilman Fertitta calls Big 12's expansion vetting process 'a sham'

    Houston board of regents chairman Tilman Fertitta had some strong words for the Big 12 in the aftermath of Texas' hiring of former Cougars coach Tom Herman.


    Houston experienced immense success in Herman's two-season tenure there, going 22-4, including a 13-1 season in 2015 that included a Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl victory over Florida State and six wins over top-25 teams. Texas hired Herman on Saturday, hours after firing Charlie Strong.


    Fertitta, appearing on "The Michael Berry Show" on KTRH-AM in Houston on Tuesday morning, took exception to the fact that a school in the Big 12, which explored expansion but eventually decided against it, hired Herman.


    "It's disappointing that the University of Texas -- who wants to open a campus in Houston and said they would never do anything to harm the University of Houston, with all the football coaches in America, who said that they would stand up for us to get into the Big 12 and then didn't even vote for us when they met with the commissioner and all the schools -- had to come take our little football coach," Fertitta told Berry. "But that's business and it's a great opportunity for Tom and I wish him the best. I hope they all do well, but I just hope we do better."

    The Big 12 will play a conference championship game starting in 2017. When discussing the interview process that potential expansion candidates engaged in with the Big 12, Fertitta was critical.


    "You know when I knew we were in trouble?" Fertitta said. "There were three [university] presidents who were on the [Big 12 expansion] committee and when we went to the interview, they weren't even part of the interview process. I walked out of that meeting and said 'Wow, this is a sham. There's no intention of doing anything.'


    "It was one of the great shams in college football, and college athletics, and just college period. ... It was a total sham and I sit here today and I laugh at the Big 12 and their leadership."

    Comments about leadership are a bit much from a guy who reports that on behalf of his school, he's looking for "more clarity" on what happened with Briles. That said, the Big 12 business was a travesty.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    All of the expansion insiders have been wrong, but none have been consistently more wrong than MHver3.
