First UT memory: Watching a RB named Metcalf with my dad ('64).

Graduated UT in '94 and '96. Met my hubby ('90) on campus.

Name of first-born: Austin.

Currently brainwashing my children with lots of burnt orange clothing and accessories. So far, it's working.

Hook 'em.

Arkansas picks up Chris Peterson as head coach, Texas still with Mack??

Many Texas fans have held out hope that offensive master Chris Peterson would be the next head coach in burnt orange. Well, once again, the dithering by Mack and Belmont have cost us a golden...


My special reason for despising LHN

My love for Texas started with my Dad. Some of my earliest memories include watching Longhorn football games every weekend while my Dad taught me the rules of the game. For decades, we've gotten...


The ultimate aggy delusion - going independent!

There is a fantastically hilarious story today in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Let me summarize: Texas A&M wants to go to the SEC. Texas A&M will leave the Big 12 no matter what, even if...


The basketball trio: Will they stay or will they go?

Now that it's officially the off-season for basketball, I have but one topic in mind for my boys in burnt orange. Will our most-talented team members move on to the $greener$ pastures of the NBA,...


Halftime Horn greatness at Baylor game

The UT crowd was rockin' at Ferrell Center in Waco last night. But perhaps the best UT crowd moment came when the players were in the locker room at halftime. Baylor Athletics ran a contest...


Welcome to Longhorn hell

Do you feel it? Is it looming over you, its shadow slowly expanding to fill the room? It's here. And it's ugly. The off-season. There are a few things that make this off-season different from...


Harrison Smith leaving - ship issue solved?

According to the Statesman, Harrison Smith is leaving to play for another school. Here's the scoop. So this brings up a couple of questions: 1. Will we miss Harrison? He hasn't contributed much...


What will ESPN do tonight?

ESPN greatly surpassed my expectations of homerism last night. No, it wasn't the worn out small-ball storyline. Nor was it the "mighty" bats of LSU. It was the wardrobe. Yes, I'm a girl. But that...


Tim Floyd resigns - first chink in USC's armor?

Ever since the Reggie Bush Heisman debacle and the allegations that soon followed, I know many of my fellow BON'ers have shared my interest in the compliance of USC with NCAA rules. Things got...


ESPN's baseball coverage bias

So every time I flipped to ESPNU this weekend, there was a game from the East or the West ... it seemed like an overload of SEC and Pac-10 teams. Not once did I see coverage of the Austin or Fort...


Colt's freakish QB rating

Yes, the non-conference competition has been less than stellar. But even if the Horns were playing a pickup team made up of me and my oldest, most-decrepit relatives, I still wouldn't expect Colt...


Cedric released by Bears

I hope the drinks were really tasty. Cedric has been booted by the Bears, according to the Statesman. So does he get picked up elsewhere? Or is he radioactive for now? I've seen some speculation...

Baseball loses to Mizzou in Big 12 tourney

That didn't take long. For the first time in a long time, I'm not liking our chances in the tourney.


Do guys do THIS all the time?

First there were the allegations that The Rocket aubsed steriods. Now there is more ugliness, with claims that Roger Clemens had a 10-year affair with country music star Mindy McCready. The...


Great expectations?

Some time ago, there was a poll on BON asking what would make us happy. Would Rick Barnes have to take his team all the way to a national championship for this season to be considered a success? Or...


What kind of fan are you?

Why do you bleed orange? Are you a student, a graduate, or the much-maligned "T-shirt fan"?Since BON is a pretty learned sports community, I'm wondering about the population. Let us all know ......


Another COY award for Barnes

The Associated Press has named Rick Big 12 coach of the year. Baylor coach Scott Drew came in a distant second.Check out this nice Dallas Morning News piece, which includes some coaching highlights...
