The Shaka Smart Era Is Over

You don’t come back from this video. Or picture:

You just don’t. When the arena looks like a Nickelback concert ten minutes before a conference game — you’re done.

And honestly, as much as UT basketball has sucked this year, I really don’t know if Shaka has lost the locker room. But I, and the video, will tell you this — he’s DEFINITELY lost the fans.

It doesn’t help Shaka either that just an hour away in Waco the Baylor Bears are No. 1 in the country and setting records with 23 straight wins. Not to mention, Texas Tech arena is out looking like this:

So, who’s the next head coach at Texas? Gregg Popovich? Becky Hammon? TJ Ford? Royal Ivey? Kevin Durant? Chris Beard?

PS: As I’m writing this, Texas is losing 44-41 in the second half.
