I think you're saying "UT had the ability to land these guys but for the

head of the university." Which is the same thing I'm saying, which is that UT didn't have the ability to land these guys. Institutional dysfunction is still dysfunction.

Assuming the money was there for buyouts and salaries: Now we don't know what sort of marching orders or limitations the President put on Currie. Currie could have thought he had carte blanche to swing for the fences and bring in the best he could get, and the apparent sabotage is shame on the UT administration. Or Currie could have been told "we're drawing lines on XYZ, don't come to me with a deal that requires me to cross those lines," which Currie did. In which case shame on him.
