Vince Young officially retires

+

His career didn't pan out the way Texas fans (or he) wanted, but he still had some memorable moments in the NFL. I wish he landed in a better place for his development, but he got an opportunity to play in the league, which most people never get to do. We'll see in what capacity he works for the university.

Congratulations to the Brooklyn Nets

I want to extend my sincerest congratulations to the Brooklyn Nets for stopping Kevin Durant's streak of 30 point games. It takes a special team to be so utterly atrocious, falling behind by...

No to Nick Saban

Nick Saban is clearly not good enough for Texas because he can't beat OU.

Mike Sherman: Texas in A&M's shadow

"I’ve never thought A&M was in Texas’ shadow. When they stood together, I thought Texas was in A&M’s shadow, but not enough (Aggies) realized it," Sherman said. Uh... ok. 76-37-5.

Can't say I blame the guy. Maybe Stoops didn't need to reinstate those receivers after all.

If you're bored, here is the Texas vs Okie State game in 2007, where we came back from 24 down in the fourth to win it. Not sure why I wanted to watch this again, but it was amusing. Video quality isn't great though. A few notable things: -This was easily Colt's roughest year, yet his QB play is light years ahead of what we've seen the past two. -Jamaal Charles is really fast. His 75 yard run in the fourth is one of my favorites. -Huge drops in the second half from both Cosby and Shipley. Nobody is perfect. -Texas gained over 300 yards in one quarter after having only like 270 after three. All three 4th quarter touchdown drives went the length of the field, so it's not like the Pokes were doing stupid things and gifting the Horns with good field position. -Mack Brown looked almost guilty we won that game, similar to how Nick Saban was decidedly unexcited about the Bluegrass Miracle. Probably not the type of win most coaches want.

The Dream Team vs. 2012

I know this doesn't have anything directly to do with Texas athletics, but it's the offseason and the Olympics are coming up. And it does concern at least one former Longhorn. I want to talk some...

Well... uh, I'm glad Pittman wants to stand up for his boys, but there are better ways to do that other than elbowing someone in the throat. Dexter is a big dude; I'm sure that hurt a lot. Disappointing play. I guess he felt like Stephenson needed to really feel like he was choking if he was going to make such gestures.

Steve Kerr on NBA Age Minimum

Not all of his points are strong, but at least he focuses, correctly, on the business reasons that the NBA should raise the age minimum rather than resorting to bad arguments that blame the NCAA or the players.

Analysis of Undefeateds

An interesting look by Huckleberry on the chances of the remaining undefeated teams to remain so. I like Boise State and I know they're good, but this again shows how easy it is for them to go undefeated in their awful schedule. Even average teams on a weekly basis can be dangerous and significantly decrease one's chances of going through the season unscathed.
