Didn't one of dipshits think Art Briles deserved a shot?

    I see you are still going to bat for a mediocre coach.

    Fortunately for all of us, the standards, methods, processes and rationales for criminal conviction are quite different from those for hiring.

    Would you set your daughter up on a blind date with OJ Simpson?

    He would fit in well at Tech with mediocre pro talent.

    I think this is you saying, "I agree", maybe...? If so, thank you.

    He could go to Bama as OC and it would be all good with Saban's baptism.

    Damn it - I know when I've lost.

    To be clear, I don't question the hire of CGC. My biggest issue is that it appears from the reporting and court cases that the Baylor Administration and Police Force are the ones to primarily blame for this situation through egregious and reprehensible acts. What happened to them? Ken Starr was fired as president but was offered the Chancellor role and a professorship in the law school (he turned both down and decided to retire). No one else was fired and no one was apparently blackballed from ever working again. Meanwhile, Art Briles can't even coach a high school team without protests.

    The administration blamed Briles in an attempt to save themselves, and it appears that smoke screen worked.

    All of which I agree with. Which is why your continuing prickliness is so perplexing.

    Perhaps his perplexing prickliness preposterously proclaims his petty pride.

    I thought it has been established that folks can "just move" to improve their situation. Amirite?

    Srsly though, I understand that rules are rules, but how can the intent of a family, moving from Colorado to Texas, be in the purview of the DEC? Am I missing something?

    (Also, I don't care at all one way or the other regarding Briles)

    Yeah, I'm not sure what is wrong with moving from another state to play football. This is America isn't it? If you are willing to move that far, I'm not sure what right any govt body has to tell you that you can or can not play football in HIGHSCHOOL. It is crazy.

    There can be a problem if you "move" from one county to another but don't actually move and it is only because of football. Even in those cases, I think policing of it should only be for egregious cases where the player might be taken advantage of.

    Rulings like this are not for the "kids" it is because of adult "high school wannabe All-Americans" that lives through the local HS football team.

    Yeah but we'd probably have more than one win.

    It sounds as though Baylor (or Art Briles) could be considered a fixer upper that could use the help of Chip and Joanna Gaines.

    Once you lie in mud some people think you belong there. Talking about Briles. Hate to think kids are punished because of Briles but sometimes exemptions can be made at the high school level in good faith. Not saying it happened this way but it would be easy for Texas athletic boards to not let Briles cut any shortcuts
