Texas booster Red McCombs on Charlie Strong: 'We got the princess of the ball'

Texas Longhorns booster Red McCombs isn’t done complaining about Charlie Strong.

Having already found it appropriate to refer to the hiring as “a kick in the face,” McCombs continued to spout ignorance like a broken fire hydrant on KESN-FM 103.3 on Tuesday, calling Strong a disappointing hire and saying that Jon Gruden would’ve been the better direction to go in.

According to McCombs, Gruden could have won five national titles in 15 years if he was the head coach of the Longhorns. While that’s a claim more unrealistic than outright outlandish, McCombs decided to up the inanity ante with this gem of a metaphor:

I was disappointed on a relative basis. I thought we had the chance to have the absolute beauty of the ball and instead we got a princess of the ball. We’ll do well with Charlie. I don’t have any doubt. I have no issue with Charlie. I just happen to think I had a champion of the world that could’ve done it. And Charlie may be another one. We’ll just have to see (The Dallas Morning News).

Yeah…McCombs clearly doesn’t have a problem with Charlie “Princess of the Ball” Strong. Nope, not at all.
