I Know A Winner When I See One

Last Sunday as I sat in the Giant Golden Boobie watching Mulk's team destroy Trailer Mulk's team for the second time in recent weeks I couldn't help reflect on the quote across the back of the Gold-Out provided t-shirts.
I know a winner when I see one.
- Kim Mulkey.

I was in a reflective mood because I was attempting to avoid an inadvertent brown-out of my own making. The evening before I had consumed no less than a tub of IPA before, during and after the men's game. If it wasn't for the Taco Cabana restroom on the way to the Sunday afternoon game I do not believe I would have been able to consume the three servings of funnel cake I indulged in during the game.

One - What does Mulk honestly think of Scott Drew? I know she would never say it, but she has to look at him and think to herself, "You're lucky there are only 24 hours in a day because I'd do both our jobs for a bargain basement $2 million/year." Shouldn't we just let Mulkey be our AD as well. I mean we could do it just like one of these reality modeling shows. Have the various candidates for a coaching position walk back and forth a few times on the runway and Mulk would eyeball them, maybe ask a few questions for the camera and select a couple of finalists. It could be high drama, tears would be shed, the losers would exit and Mulk would tell them how they do and don't remind her of herself. Ultimately she will pick a winner. I think this could be accomplished in one day of filming and on a low budget. FSN would pick it up and maybe we could use the profits to pay the coaches salary. One thing is clear, Mulk needs more power.

At this point Victoria and Heidi need
Mulk more than she needs them.

Second - Where are all the students for women's games? The contrast last weekend couldn't be more stark. Drew's team brought in the second largest crowd, including the usual bear Pit Folks, in school history to watch a Top Ten Texas team beat the B for the 22nd time in a row. Do you hear that, "The 22nd time in a row". It has been ten, I repeat 10 years, since the Gentlemen beat Texas, in basketball. Basketball, not football, Basketball. Yes, I know it was on ESPN and yes I know we have our best record in a long time, but still come on. A perennial top ten Baylor team played a top ten Oklahoma team on a weekend afternoon in a game in which they were giving away free t-shirts to watch a battle for the Big 12 title and the crowd was 3,000 less than the gentlemen's game and student's were noticeably absent. This less than inspiring crowd number happened to be the largest crowd of the season for the women's team. Frankly it's embarrassing. I will say that the crowd that did show up was boisterous and caused as much a ruckus as can be expected for a group who started voting during Ike's presidency.

  • Mulk Center--aka Bear Meat--is back! As I pledged in the Waco Trib, the gold paw on green field icon stayed on my desktop all these lonely months. Welcome back!

  • Oh, for the love of Walter Abercrombie. Y'all can't just take several months off and then reappear again without warning or explanation.

    So what happened already? Jail time? I'm guessing serious jail time.

  • First off I don't think BearMeat is back. According to the court order Red must still spend time with his illegitimate kids and Pat has immersed himself in a Dutch nunnery. Apparently its a great place to score, you know with all the ladies and priests favoring a younger demographic. No, I don't think BearMeat will ever be quite the same. I have a hankering for some posting though. I'll get something up with more details. Perhaps entitled the "Demise of BearMeat" or "She's Still Married Even if You Are Both Drunk".

  • Judge,

Well at least not usual legal means. So since his family isn't going anywhere and he is stick with them regardless, please tell him that his friends here at Bear Meat Blog miss him dearly and that he better come back soon and never pulll this disappearing act again or else unlike his family we can and will leave!!!
