2. That recruiting class he had coming in to VCU

One player ended up at UNC and another at Kentucky. He could have created a monster dominant program in a mid major here. Im a VCU grad. Great home court too - 7500 loud fans. Oh well that Texas money was huge. Hed said no to UCLA already.

3. I guess he didn't want to be fired like Charlie Strong.

When you are beaten by a lowly team like Kansas in football or Abilene Christian in basketball, the board and alumns at Texas don't like it at all.

4. This was surely in the works.

Texas is always going to be football track and swimming - basketball will never get what it needs.
