First former Longhorn off the board at last!

While the nattering nabobs of negativism are busy crying about the lack of former Longhorns being drafted, crying about the lack of evaluation, recruiting and development at our beloved school, I...

It's too bad we couldn't have waited

Until after the MNC game to get a really smart coach like Jimbo Fisher. Unlike Mack Brown, who we all figured was just lucky to win the crystal football, Jimbo really knows what he is doing. T...

Winning is the only thing, or is it?

I have seen a number of comments here and on Barking Carnival calling for Art Briles as our next head coach. This got me to thinking about just what is most important to The University of Texas...

What does NCAA stand for? A modest proposal

I've seen the pictures of the Boz, with his t-shirt saying the "C" stood for communist. I can't agree, for more than the obvious reason that no thinking person could ever recommend anything done...

I enjoy college football more. Tonight, I watched Monday Night Football, and came to a decision. I will not watch another NFL game until the real officials are back. I don't have any strong...

Aggies being aggies

The old expression was: "As dumb as a bag of hammers." Well, now it needs to be changed to "As dumb as a box of hammers. " As in Richard Box, an A&M regent and, of course, a former Aggie. Here...

Another idea for Penn State

I put this here for your consideration, rather than add it to Hopkins Horn's excellent post, as I don't want it to get lost. Just maybe there could be a better answer than the death penalty. Odds of this happening? Pretty slim. The possible benefits could be enormous.

Not only do I feel your pain, I want to do something about it. If UT or OU had your record this year, there is no doubt that we would be ranked #2. So, spread the word. This is the best chance ever for college football fans to kill the BCS. Boycott the game. It's not like you would be missing anything, right?

Boycott time

I know I'm preaching to people who believe in SEC Supremacy here, but seriously, folks. If there ever was a "Championship Game" to boycott, this is it. Do your part. Refuse to watch this travesty. Help us all get to a better place. Thank you.

Genius like this deserves the widest possible audience. Or, more likely, the drunkest possible audience. Either way, prepare to be amazed.

Good news about Colt

1

Looks like Colt is in much better hands than last year. In addition to this article, I believe I read earlier that Colt was given non-existent plays to call in the huddle, just to make him look bad in front of his teammates. I couldn't help but think about the similarities between his situation and that of another UT QB you might have heard of. Replace 3rd round with 3rd pick in round 1, and change the names. What might have been if someone like Holmgren was at the Titans, and saw that they could win with their QB, but not with their coach?

The mail forwarding issues were the final straw!

Remember, you can talk all the smack you want online, but in person it can get strange. Be careful out there.

NCAA puts teeth in glass overnight, then loses them the next morning

+

Well, if tOSU's actions in this case aren't "Lack of institutional control" or "failure to monitor" then I guess nothing is. After the sanctions against USC, some of us hoped that we were seeing the dawn of a new era concerning violations by big-time schools. Obviously, that is not the case. If Texas and other schools want to belong to an organization that actually enforces its rules, I think it's time we left the NCAA and started our own.

All is well in Columbus

From Yahoo Sports: (Click on fanshot title for link) "COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—As part of his punishment for not revealing his knowledge of his players’ NCAA violations, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel will attend a five-day compliance seminar in June in Tampa, Fla. Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch confirmed Saturday that Tressel would take part in the NCAA-sponsored event June 6-10 at a resort hotel on the waterfront. One of the topics of the compliance seminar—one of two put on by the NCAA this summer—is "Division I Major Infractions." Well, all you negative naysayers have been proven wrong. It seems that the reason Coach Tressel covered up his players' misdeeds and lied repeatedly was that he didn't know it was wrong. After attending this seminar, he will finally know the rules." As an aside, to those who say the NCAA will never come down hard on a program like Ohio State, consider the punishment here. Five days at an oceanfront resort! That should put the fear of God into any other programs tempted to cheat.

Adios, Nebraska

Not sure when this was taken, but it seems to sum up our travels to Lincoln over the years. Thanks to Gen. Stoopnagle from EDSBS.
