    "My guess is there was an attempt to keep it from us," Byrne said. "I think the whole thing started as something well-intended, to keep a number of people who were good donors to the university forever informed about things that were going on. It just got out of control."

    Well intended? Maybe if he was doing this stuff for free. And that's a pretty big maybe still.

    He could make that very difficult if they win or do very well in the South this year.

    And, that's not inconceivable.

    I think they need to hire Dan down there and clean up the program.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I'd prefer that McCarney didn't associate with the Aggies.
