I want to stress that at this point this is nothing more than a Twitter rumor, but I saw elsewhere that a few people who follow Texas sports closely are hinting strongly at some bad news coming soon for Texas. I will post the relevant tweets and links and we will see if anything comes of it, I suppose.

BAD BAD NEWS about UT athletics etc about to come out tonight. Brace yourself it's terrible news. STAY TUNED
Lots of rumors and things floating around. Don't want to put out anything until I talk to some folks. But it's not good
For those wanting Dodds out this will probably get it done. Everyone is reluctant to put out yet. You hope this shit is not real.
Lets just say that it's not good when UT's general counsel quit today. Separate yourself from the shit storm going down

Serious trouble may be brewing on the 40 acres, from what I am hearing.. As soon as I can confirm details, I will... http://fb.me/2nN9Er1B8
EDIT: Additional Update
Poster BobbyBurton on Texas247: "Guys, there are rumors. We have heard them. If true, they would be crippling to several athletic department members. Time will tell if they are substantiated or if they are rumors."
EDIT 2: Additional speculation from Reddit user Beave1:
"Doing some snooping around and piecing a few facts together, here's what I can surmise...
Bev Kearney, a lesbian African American track coach, was fired recently when it came out (she admitted I believe) to a sexual relationship with an athlete back in the early 2000's. After that firing it also came out that Major Applewhite had a sexual relationship (one-nighter) with a student trainer. His pay was frozen, but he was not fired. After his pay freeze he was promoted to co-OC and given a big raise. Kearney and her lawyers are upset and claiming inconsistent and discriminatory treatment in how her firing.
Sexual relationships between UT employees and students are not actually illegal. They are highly discouraged by the university though, and the employees are required to report them. (editorial comment - Due to the quasi-employment status of student athletes a whole host of sexual harassment laws may apply and claims could be brought if a student chose to sue the school, so the school clearly doesn't want to see this stuff go on.)
My educated guess here is that in preparing a legal case against UT, Kearney and her lawyer have obtained "the list" of all such reported sexual relationships either within the AD or possibly all of UT. It's not just "Kearney and Applewhite", it's bigger, messier, and much more embarrassing than that. And they're either threatening to or have leaked it and it will become public. I will also guess that UT is going to try to split hairs here in the legal department. They will claim Kearney was fired not for the relationship, but not reporting it or covering it up, and that Applewhite's relationship was reported. This sort of a legal defense of course is horrible for PR, even if it may be technically defensible. The court of public opinion will not care."

What is it. That is the question.
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Major Applewhite FTL. Follow Weedline and Bama into Texas, we are about to rob the sit out of that state.
Yup, nobody on our homeboard seems to know either. A couple people on our homeboard are guessing it has something to do with Rick Barnes but nobody really knows yet.
Campus prostitution in all sports is the rumor right now.
prostitution... that seems a little extreme to be believable
Then what is going on at T A&M to out recruit them. That is the real question.
At Texas or UNLV?
This is what I read (once again this is not my info, just what I am reading):
I heard on radio this evening.
And the big news is a football equipment manager took naked pictures of female track athletes.
Chip Brown was on the show - but I do not know if he is the one who said it.
Major Appelwhite is the guy they are saying for football. Of course, that's just what I'm reading so I have no idea if it's true.
so, then bust the prostitutes... big deal.
so, ummm....when do you think these pics will become available to the general public?
There's a big difference between banging coeds and prostitution.
I've said it before, I'll say it again, even if something as crazy as this is true, it makes us better not worse. Our administration has needed to go for a couple years now, if this makes it happen then so be it.
Chip Brown is not a credible media member

You gaywads are getting there.
Only if people start leaving the conference will it be complete
A couple of days ago Peyton Manning became a quadriplegic according to twitter. I will take the wait and see approach.
Bobby Petrino to Texas
His pants would explode the second he stepped foot on campus
UT has some serious talent on campus.
