Yahoo trying to cancel Sark already
God these people are terrible. They are on a mission to destroy college football.

quote:

Texas hired Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian as its new head coach amid great fanfare.
On his first day on the job Tuesday, he stepped into a minefield.



quote:

One of the first questions he was asked concerned the Texas school song “The Eyes of Texas,” which was exposed in recent months for its roots in racism.


Sark said
quote:

know this much, ‘The Eyes of Texas’ is our school song,” Sarkisian said. “We support that song. We’re going to sing that song, we’re going to sing it proudly.”




quote:

The song was a source of controversy last season amid the nation’s race reckoning in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police.
Texas athletes called for the school to stop playing the song over the summer, citing its racist ties. The song, set to the tune of “I’ve been working on the railroad,” debuted in 1903 at a campus minstrel show featuring white students performing in blackface.

I knew it was going to be about the song before I read it. The liberal media is beyond vomit inducing.

Austin is VERY liberal. He might receive blowback from his own side on this one

shite that really sucks for him. Guess the only thing that can be done is for him to rehabilitate his image and come back to be the OC at Alabama.

At what point do we use common sense and look at the current intent rather than previous use? Eye of Texas has been sung at UT games for decades with 0.0% racist intentions.

Never. We'll never do that.

Hell, I just started the press conference and right before he brought Sark up Del Conte said this

"I want to welcome you to the Longhorn family. Because today, the Eyes of Texas are upon us. They are upon you."

Oh noz!

There are still very normal people there in positions of power, unfortunately maybe not for too much longer. Seems to be that way across the country

Not from the people that truly matter (boosters who hired him and fired Herman because of his stance).

I'm sure you know more than I do about it because I have never been there. But I wasn't really suggesting that his job would be insecure - but that the liberals in Austin will nonstop attack him. It's enough to make a fellow miserable

It’s amazing that they’re literally calling a tune racist.

What a sad "gotcha" attempt, on literally his first day.

Remember when sports reporters covered, you know, sports?
