    Voepel on Texas

    Gail Goestenkors not satisfied with success at Texas - ESPN

    some comments on Big 12

    kind of rehash of a similar article last year.

    Re: Voepel on Texas

    Agree with Redbird that this article recalls one last year where the Texas coach said in effect that there were no easy games in the Big 12, unlike the ACC, where I believe she said that she could count on a few easy wins. That point aside, I wonder why Texas deserves such a long in-depth article? Just because of its clout?

    Voepel used to work for the KC Star. If anything she has been partial to K-State and ISU in her articles over the years.

    Reason for the article? Easy, Texas has been a disappointment since GG's arrival in Austin. They have made the NCAAs but they have not been a threat for the B12 title and they haven't advanced in the NCAAs. GG inherited and has recruited good talent to UT but they have clearly not lived up to expectations.

    Okay, thanks, that makes sense.
