TCU has had consistently good defenses since joining. Especially given the offenses they face yearly. Sure, they have a down year here and there, but they're also doing it with a lot of players that Texas wouldn't bother to recruit.

I expect that kind of consistency at Texas.  If TCU can do it, then Texas can do it.

Expecting defense that is consistently at the level of TCU, at The University of Texas, isn't too much to ask.  It's just not.  And it is my expectation.  Any and every time we don't manage it, I am disappointed.

This, with "Oklahoma" instead of "Texas."
In a conference with high-powered, up-tempo offenses, the defensive stats are going to suffer.  But, from my perspective, OU should at a bare minimum have one of the top 2 or 3 defenses in the Big 12.  And it seems to me that UT should have a similar expectation.
And this year OU did, although Brown County doesn't know it.  #1 in the conference in total defense, #2 behind Baylor in scoring defense.
Sorry for the interjection.  Back to the Chris Ash discussion.

Not surprised.  Didn’t he make fun of a player from an opposing team awhile back?

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Yup.  His actions reminded me a lot of this move:

Dammit Herman.  More "not Texas standard" stuff.  And here we go with another year.  I guess for appearances sake, we have to let some more time pass between Herman's firing and CDC upping his contract.
