Yesterday, seeing news on Hall transferring to Texas, I thought of the fact that this is a expression of just how desperate Sarkisian is to field a competitive team at Texas. It represents the only possible way it can be done at this point in time. After Texas losing streak last year he realizes that he only has this year to be competitive in the conference. Otherwise he would be fired and both he and Texas would be starting over. That is the nature of the situation he has put himself into.Saw a tweet yesterday (can't find it now) where the writer said (paraphrase): "building a team based on players that couldn't make it at Bama is an interesting approach for Sarkisian..."
