My friend played under Beckman at UT... Said he was a good coach but a real A-hole. Lied to players all the time and didn't connect with them well... Funny and insignificant example: someone farted in the locker room while he was talking. He repeatedly asked who did it and ensured that if they fessed up, they wouldn't get in trouble. As soon as the player fessed up to passing gas, Beckman kicked him out of the locker room and punished him the whe week w/ sprints, etc. at practice. A very insignificant example, but somewhat humorous, nonetheless.
