Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Legendary Arkansas coach Frank Broyles died yesterday. When he was hired, his salary was $15,000. After coaching he went into broadcasting. He then became part of a team that was never better than this:
  • Trump tried to do damage control yesterday by coming out and giving a stronger condemnation of the Saturday events in Charlottesville. He looked like a child told by his parents to go next door and apologize. (Ticket fans: I promise 100% I wrote this before Junior Miller said the exact same thing this morning at 7:20 a.m.)
  • Aggieland has cancelled a white nationalist rally scheduled for 9/11. I think that's wrong for a public university to do that. Let them speak. They have that right. And I definitely want to hear what they have to say. 
  • And I'm split right down the middle on whether to remove Confederate statues. On one hand, they remind us of history. On the other, statues are put up to honor someone. But it is absolutely wrong for a mob to destroy one like what happened in North Carolina late yesterday.
  • The Mooch was on Colbert last night. I'm still sad he's not Trump's spokesman any longer. The guy is full throttle entertainment.
  • Road rage?
  • One piece of advice I gave to the College Sophomore in the House. Never, ever, honk at someone. In this day and time, your momentary anger can get you killed.
  • In the past, I've criticized the FBI for finding idiots online and setting them up to do something they aren't smart enough to ever pull off. In the past, they just went after Muslims. (The Dallas case in 2009 was a prime example.) Well, at least they don't discriminate now: 
  • Three CEOs have resigned from Trump's "Manufacturing Council" because of the way he handled the Charlottesville crisis.
