Cigarroa to Step Down - What Does it Mean for UT?

Curious as to what the Barkers in the know feel about the news that the Chancellor is going to step down. Seems like really poor timing for Bill Powers given that the next administration, whichever...

Want to read something that will make you feel guilty about liking college football?

Deadspin ran a letter from an FSU teacher that provides yet another reminder (as if there are not enough out there) about the filthy underworld of linking big dollar athletic enterprises with supposed institutions of higher learning. Pretty good read, imo.

Let's Talk Head Coaching Candidates

I loved Scipio's analysis last year on under the radar candidates, and seeing as how he said he has not had time (understandably) to compile a similar list this year, I thought the least we could...

Per 247, Desmond Harrison will be practicing today

Bobby Burton and Jeff Howe are reporting that despite BYU's adverse ruling, Desmond Harrison will be practicing today, suggesting that either UT believes NCAA clearance is assured or he has already been cleared to play.

Manny Diaz reaching out to FSU? FSU sites are reporting it to be so...

There is speculation out on the internets that Manny Diaz has reached out to Jimbo regarding the vacant FSU DC job. Granted, there is also speculation that FSU is likely to offer Bama's DB coach the job. But nonetheless it is intriguing that his name keeps popping up. Maybe he is trying to find a soft landing spot, secure his own lifeboat off of the H.M.S. Mack Brown, or maybe his agent is good at getting his name out so it doesn't seem like he is an abject failure.


Bryan Harsin to interview for Arkansas State HC job per Bruce Feldman

Bruce Feldman (CBS Sports) just tweeted that Harsin is expected to interview for the Arkansas State head coaching job which opened when Gus Malzahn left to take over the rotting Chizik fire that is...


First 2014 commitment? WR Lorenzo Joe per 247

Per 247's Blake Munroe, Abilene Cooper WR Lorenzo Joe has committed to UT.... for the 2014 class. In what seems to be a massive change of recruiting tactics, it would appear that the staff has sent...

Rough Week for OU -- Senior Center Ben Habern calls it quits

In a week when several JUCOs apparently failed to qualify (Courtney Gardner - a highly rated WR - and Will Latu - an OL), a sophomore OL that was potentially going to figure into the 2 deep (Dylan Dismuke) leaves the team due to a knee injury, and their top ranked recruit decommits, the news just got worse. Ben Habern, the projected starting center, is calling it quits due to persistent back and neck troubles.

More JUCO offers for UT? - DE Marcus Hardison

According to 247's Blake Munroe, Bo Davis has talked with the coaches of Kansas JUCO DE Marcus Hardison (who grew up in Louisiana). The 6'4 290 lb DE told 247 that Texas is his favorite school and he would likely commit immediately if offered.

President Powers' Job in Jeopardy According to Texas Monthly's Paul Burka

This is beyond embarrassing if true, and will probably not end well for anyone involved. I can only say that I hope there is enough muscle behind the scenes to make the Governor back down. Whatever side of the political aisle one finds themselves on, it is tough to believe anything other than that Powers has been a tremendous ambassador for the University and has led the school incredibly well through some turbulent times.

New Texas Longhorns Committment: ESPN 150 CB Antwuan Davis (Bastrop)

One DB down.... ESPN 150 cornerback Antwuan Davis (Bastrop, Texas/Bastrop) made the 25-minute drive west to Austin and gave his verbal pledge to the Texas coaching staff, a source informed HornsNation. He is Texas' 14th commitment overall and the first since four-star tight end Durham Smythe committed on March 8.

Miles Onyegbule to have surgery - likely to miss significant time

Torn pectorial muscle. Sounds like he is out at least through August and speculation is he will miss a significant chunck of the season and may redshirt. The curse of the TE position continues - although from spring practice, it looked like Miles had his work cut out for him and may not have contributed this year.

Darius Terrell (So) and Eryon Barnett (Jr) To Transfer

Texas sophomore tight end Darius Terrell and junior defensive back Eryon Barnett have elected to transfer. ... and we are now below 85 for 2012.


Realized the OL was a problem in 2007

Mack just said this in his press conference this afternoon. Not that it is anything we all didn't know, but I am a little troubled to hear him admit this, and admit that they saw all of the flaws...
