But their football program’s MONEY is ALWAYS relevant.
Now Paul on dem 🥜 lol funny how that works. The sec has been recruiting against Texas for 15 years
Any offensive coordinator looks good at Alabama
This aged well. Now you are praising Texas for how relevant they are. Haha
Texas never was relevant minus a few years that Mack was there
They couldn’t even beat TCU, Texas is like my drunk buddy who wants to fight everyone but gets womped even by the bigger girls.
Yeah Paul we already know this what are you a 5 year old??
F Texas and everything that it stands for😈🍢🍢🍢🍢 GO NOLES
I'm a fan of UT, I think they need to join the SEC , more recruits will want to go there , just like Tx A&M did
Hide and watch \m/
Truth, they suck now and have sucked for years. Break out the VHS tapes texas fans. Its all ya got.
Idiots like Finebaum have said "click-bait" bs like this for decades. Texas isn't relevant (then Vince Young and the Horns win it all)... years go by and they start saying it again ...
You think Louisiana and Arkansas are good teams?
What’s Texas’s recruiting pitch? “Hey Mr. 4-5* player. Dont go to Oklahoma, LSU, or Alabama where youll olay in the NFL. Come to Texas where youll be a car salesman or selling insurance when you graduate.”
Our problem is that our program is run by a collection of Jerry Jones type individuals. You can get by with that in the pros but its a recipe for disaster and mediocrity at the college level. I pray we have success and that that success convinces the prominent boosters to not meddle and just let our guy coach and do his job.
Charlie Strong and Tom Herman both both assembled a rogue's gallery of ineptitude and inexperience for their respective staffs. Sark has assembled a legit staff, better than any in recent memory at Texas. Remains to be seen how things will turn out but this at least has given Texas fans hope.
Somebody had to say it...Houston is doing better than Texas...
I think not relevant is corporate speak for they are not any good. They should just keep it simple and say that.
I'm an OU fan and I want Texas to be good again. As long as they lose that game in October, a strong Texas program is good for the Big 12 and college football as a whole.
Should high school players get paid too ?
He's right; UT, Lands good recruits every year n shits the bed
But In fairness old man Finebaum is not relevant either. But for some reason ESPN keeps him around.
When you generate the kind of cash that Texas does, you tend to stay relevant even during down years. This is just Paul being outlandish for the publicity.
Thank you Paul
The last thing to say to Paul, thank you.
With a school like Texas they can go from being irrelevant to a power house in a short amount of time. Before Saban even Bama had went through a long stretch of being irrelevant. with schools like that once they start winning it’s a lot easier to build on that success into becoming a juggernaut
Of course inbread looking big Ears never mentions his beloved Tennessee.
They are too liberal is the problem. And had to get the coach with a black wife.
Texas A&M rules that state
Paul is the most reliable source here. After all that man can probably hear the future.
The bald guy wants you just to watch Alabama in the national champ game every year!
Well then why are you talking about Texas?
How is such wormy, arrogant, holier-than-though, elitist snob like Paul Finebaum so popular in the deep south?
And not one single sportswriter or sportscaster in the world is relevant. Or ever was
Paul finebaum is irrelevant... Smh
Simple. They have to keep high level Texas recruits in Texas.
True you have to do something
The eyes of Texas are no longer upon the Longhorns
Texas had won the last 3 Boxl Games, Ask Georgia, Utah and Colorado if Texas is relevant Paul get your nose out of the SECANM’s fixing to teach you a lesson Texas boys are
Their greed in setting up the Longhorn network years ago weakened the conference (not OU). They haven’t been competitive since. But hey, as a business, don’t they out-earn all of the other “schools” out there?
Sark is NOT an upgrade from Herman. I've been a Horn fan since 1963, I am not optimistic about 2021.Saw clip of him talking about how he was gonna put the best players on the field, and get the ball to the "playmakers"......wow....no coach in FB tries to do that? Sheesh.
Lmao i just moved to Austin and hearing austin sports radio react to this was gold. Theyre so delusional
If the city of Austin ever gets real with major league sports (NBA, NFL, MLB) you can kiss that football program goodbye. They have a unique situation in that they’re located in the heart of one of the 10th largest cities in the U.S., but they have no professional sports programs. Eventually, major league sports will make their way in and fracture UTs monopoly on sports in Austin. The boosters know this, and they’re probably the ones blocking professional sports in Austin.
Texas , really , I think you should ask Georgia and Utah if Texas is Relevant.
Texas , really , I think you should ask Georgia and Utah if Texas is Relevant. We’re going to keep them people away from the start he’s running the show down here all of it no interference he gets it all
Paul Finebaum is a fine analyst, but he is also a total SEC homer. He may be right about my 'Horns, but we'll just have to wait and see. I much prefer to be trashed and underestimated prior to the season, rather than showered with adulation. So, thanks Mr. Finebaum and keep up the good motivational work. Hook 'em.
Who's this guy again? Oh yeah an SEC fan boiiiii
What happened to Texas is what happened to all the other failed big name football programs, the alumni took them over and destroyed them.
Sark already knows he's in for rough ride. He knows that the qb roster at Texas is not very good and that's why he's trying so hard to land an elite qb. Texas doesn't have what it takes right now. A&M is the marquee school in Texas by far at the moment.
The Texas Longhorns have the 4th toughest schedule in college football with teams like "Louisiana and Arkansas".....for real? If Texas doesn't beat those 2 teams, they are REALLY in trouble.
The shivering freon ideally bathe because donna encouragingly grip as a puzzled guilty. afraid, humorous cotton
Paul Finebaum is not a relevant college football commentator and ESPN is not a relevant source of sports coverage anymore
Pathetically behind Jimbo?? Lost all credibility right there.
The boosters are what's wrong with the program. Every Texas fan knows this.
Yep. DKR had a knack for doing things his way and still keeping the big $ boosters happy. Certain "boosters" were ticked when Akers was hired, and it's been like that ever since.
ESPN is boring. No good personalities
Funny thing is Oklahoma Sooners have plenty of billionaire boosters or at least worth 100 million or more and they don’t meddle as much… it’s the egos problem… Oklahoma billionaires keep to themselves and Texas billionaires are egotistical clowns
Funny how Texas and clowns are virtually synonymous
Sark is not tejas savior he is a good o coordinator and that’s where his ceiling stops
Texas Longhorns should never have pushed Mack to resign they cursed themselves for a century with their clowns they’ve hired afterwards Short horns are the laughingstock of fallen blue blood programs. Bijan is overrated and injured 🤕 prone fat calf
Yes it is, ask Georgia
Texas can’t recruit anyone from Texas. All the best player are going to the sec
4th hardest schedule in the fbs? Give me a break that schedule is a cake walk outside of OU.
Watch and learn
Who is the lady @2:23 🤷🤷🤷🤷
Out of the last 30 to 40 years when were they relevant?
Most DELUSIONAL fan base in all of college football!
If they aren't relevant, why would you discuss them. More "hot takes" from Finebaum to bait clicks. The man definitely has a face for radio.
The pressure is phenomenal
Why would Texas be a relevant program? Like why does this even need to be said? 🤦🏾♂️
Says the most biased unrelevant sports broadcaster known to mankind. How many coaches did Alabama go through before hiring Saban and how long did they last?? Florida, LSU, Texas A&M, Florida State, USC, Michigan etc. These people listen to what this tool and his other people say and take it for face value. 🤣🤣
Yep that can be exhausting for any head coach. The boosters are hurting more than helping the Texas football program.
Texas is going to shut a lot of people up this year!
Can’t beat Oklahoma or Oklahoma state, let alone any teams outside the B12 like OSU Clemson Bama LSU UGA ND Oregon. Don’t come @me with the UGA bowl game when half their team sat out a unimportant non playoff bowl game.
To be fair, the billionaire boosters didn't like Strong and they didn't like Herman, turns out they were correct. They both suck.
The sec has 14 teams, one great team in Alabama, one great season by a transfer in Joe Burrow, that’s it. It’s Alabama and the 13 dwarfs. The sec needs Alabama, without Bama the sec is Average, no other school is s threat, Georgia never lives up to the hype, Florida hasn’t been relevant since Tebow, LSU has athletes, but can never seem to get a QB, with the lone exception of Burrow and Joe Brady to guide the passing game, both are long gone, now it’s back to same ole LSU, and for the fans who chant sec sec, it doesn’t make your team relevant just because your sec team gets the privilege of wearing the same conference logo as Bama, and you get to watch your team get boat raced every yr by Bama.
Finebaum knows that Texas was the only school Saban thought about leaving Bama for in 2013, he also knows if Texas ever figures it out, they can be a major power again, he has to keep bad mouthing Texas to belittle them, they have a recruiting hotbed, more money than any other college football program, Forbes ranked them 1 richest college football program, and it’s not even close, and Austin doesn’t hurt recruiting, great weather, night life, etc .
Hope Austin has a large stock of Tequila…have fun with 7 wins a year
Meh, who cares. In Austin, win or lose, we still booze
Texas and Texas A&M will never learn. Paying coaches a ton of money doesn’t mean you’re gonna win 😂
LSU and Arkansas and they could be 0-2? LoOLOLOLOLOL.
Lord knows I can’t stand Texas but this has to be the dumbest statement I’ve ever heard from Finebaum. They may not be championship contenders right now, but they are definitely relevant.
As a Texas alumnus and fan of Texas sports, I can admit that the truth hurts. It’s a not nationally relevant football program these days, and the only that will change that is sustained success on the field. And it’s no secret that we have too many “Buddy Garrett” type BMDs who feel like their financial support entitles to access and influence. It’s frustrating to know that we have access to great recruiting, facilities, legit academics, desirable location, and of course the money. None of that does much good with the amount of political nonsense and meddling that the coaches and AD have to negotiate.
At 1:30....that's Louisiana State, not Louisiana. You're welcome.
Love me some Paul. He tells it like it is.
@Jonathan Houser hard not to be, it’s been blatantly obvious. Texas never recovered from Colt McCoy getting hit. After that play Bama’s program went one way, Texas the opposite. Maybe hiring all of bamas staff is the solution? We’ll see
Paul is an idiot. But he is right on this.
Its not just Texas. Its ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!! The best recruits only go to maybe 4 or 5 schools: Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, Oklahoma and maybe swap out the Sooners with another team every so often. There is ZERO parity in college football. Everyone sucks except those teams.
It’s also because everyone else is taking all of our recruits we have the best football players but not they not staying in Texas like they were doing
A&M doesn’t have that problem. So... Maybe it’s the quality of the university and/or the program; not the State. Peace
Texas has been out recruited in state by out of state programs. Texas cant land top recruiting classes anymore.
Enormous sense the last time Texas have won a national championship since 2006 in 2010 but with this coach from Alabama that’s been with Sabin for a long time if he’s been with Sabin Saban has probably told him a lot a good things I hope this new coach from Alabama what do a good job because the good thing is he recruited a lot of people but not from high school so I hope that Texas wins a national championship this year all the Longhorns fans Support Texas Longhorns
Paul Finebaum sugarcoats nothing. Sadly, he is correct. The UT alums have not a done a service to past coaches. There needs to be a unified message coming from a singular source- the AD to the coach. Look at the coaches who have done well the past decade- Saban, Riley, and Urban- they are the unquestioned boss and given anonymity. The alums at UT are being foolish.
There are several times that, for various reasons, have lost relevance, including Texas, Michigan, Florida State, USC, and Penn State.
I often wonder how it would've been if Mack Brown stayed.
This dude still so salty about Bama coaching staff going to Texas. I cant take ESPN journalism as real....247sports is better
"ESPN" . . . "journalism" in the same sentence? Never!!!
Texas, Nebraska, and Tennessee are the big three irrelevants. Nebraska's downfall was totally self-inflicted. Nebraska, Florida, and Florida State dominated the 90's. Nebraska was good into the 2000s then fired good coaches.
The only thing no longer relevant in NCAA football is Paul Finebaum! He's ALWAYS been biased and uninformed in his opinions. We're talking about 30+ years of schilling for whatever team / conference ESPN is broadcasting, and usually with little to zero factual information in his statements. He's the epitome of ignorance in college sports!
Paul is an irrelevant announcer
I hate Texas .But I hate Cecil turtle More .F u Cecil ( finebaum ) turtle
What makes a program relevant? Natties or conference championships ? Paul sounds like a hater ..
The better players don’t want to play there. Would you want Matthew McConaughey hanging around the locker room sniffing your game day underwear?
Texas fan here - we know we're not relevant. Idk who is claiming that we are. Nothing wrong with being optimistic and cheering for your guys though.
