Texas fired Chris Beard after a felony domestic violence charge. Maybe Texas Tech and Texas can now agree that Chris Beard might be a scumbag. And probably hangs out with scumbags.
Here’s the sign I want to see at games from both schools: “Chris Beard bites!!!”. See the police report. Yikes.
There are scumbags in all walks of life. But I’d like to see us be less forgiving of scumbags on big stages with positions of leader/teacher/mentor. And any men who bite their domestic partner in anger. That’s just crazy, right? As my friend Andy put it, “Biting Hall of Fame: Marv Albert, Mike Tyson, Hannibal Lecter.” All bat-poop-crazy in their own way.
Kudos to Texas for doing the right thing here. Boos for taking 3 weeks to do it.
I’d like the coach of my alum to be fired (Juwan Howard) for his inability to maintain a professional demeanor. He hasn’t advanced to scumbag status though, at least not yet. There’s the rub: yet. I don’t hate Howard, I just don’t trust him. Ticking time bomb. I miss John Beilein, a lot.
I put Harbaugh in the untrustworthy bucket too. He’s been there a long time, bu† the hypocritical righteousness while violating NCAA rules is the one that really rubs me the wrong way. Not to mention the stupidity. If you bought a hamburger for a recruit at the Brown Jug, it’s downright stupid to lie about it to an investigation committee. We’re not talking about fancy food here; Wendy’s makes better burgers. In fact, at my age, you’d have to pay me to eat a burger at the Brown Jug. It’s a college campus dive. I spent my fair share of time at the Brown Jug as a student, mostly eating eggs and pancakes late at night after a long study session with friends. But it’s not a place you take someone to impress them or sway them. It’s not even the institution that Crazy Jim’s or the Fleetwood is, never mind a fantastic food place like Zingerman’s.
