I've lived in North Texas all my life. My parents weened me on stories of Staubach comebacks and I've been a Cowboys fan ever since. I also follow the DFW sports teams and have attended games for all four major franchises and a few local minor league teams. I became an obsessed fan (instead of a casual fan) of the Stars during college, the Rangers just after college, and the Maverick's during the NHL lockout.

"SMU got a lot of help from us over the last three or four years. They are not going to get any help about a game or a conference; they are going to get no help from Gary Patterson. Don't ask me about anything. We've bent over backwards to help them because that's what I believe in."

SMU the new name in Big East expansion rumors

+

A source with knowledge of the meeting told ESPN.com's Andy Katz that the Big East did not issue any invitations Sunday. The source said a number of schools were discussed, including Navy, Army, Air Force, Temple, Central Florida and a new name in SMU, which would be a natural rival with TCU if the Horned Frogs honor the commitment to join the conference in 2012-13. All of these schools except Army and Navy would join the Big East for all sports.

TCU is fully committed to the Big East

Marinatto also added that TCU is fully committed to the Big East and so next year's conference will at least include the Horned Frogs.

Pretty basic stuff, although I thought it was interesting that the Rangers learned from the potential Halladay trade in 2009 to save money for deadline deals in 2010.

Meantime, in the what’s fair is fair department, it should be noted that over in Detroit on Sunday, former Ranger Armando Galarraga did not make it out of the first inning, surrendering four hits and five runs while walking three. Last year, as Galarraga was winning 13 games for the Tigers while Texas’ pitching struggled, he was being held up as just one more example of Texas general manager Jon Daniels’ failures. This isn’t to say that Galarraga won’t come back strong or that the Rangers’ current pitching success will continue to this magnitude. Things change in this game, and they’ve seen plenty of that in Arlington.

At last. Someone in the national media, in this case CBS Sports' Weekend Buzz, noticed Galarraga is sucking and gives JD a break on losing him.
