Habe on the Horns – Texas Moves on from Barnes’ Dismissal
When Texas announced on Sunday that Rick Barnes was out as coach of the Longhorns’ men’s basketball team, it wasn’t a surprise to very many people – after all, there had already been plenty of demands that Barnes be fired or step aside after Texas’s disappointing 2014-15 season that ended in a NCAA Round of 64 loss to Butler.
The naysayers and critics got their wish, and the opinion here is that the Longhorns may be worse off in the long run. It’s said that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, but one has to be wary that such a green patch isn’t over a septic tank.
