I've been a Longhorn fan all my life, or at least as long as I've known the identiity of an object called a football. My aunt used to sew/alter the uniforms for the UT cheerleaders back in the late 60's during the DKR heyday, and I guess a lot of that passion rubbed off on me. One of my earliest memories is the 1969 showdown in Fayetteville and the incredulity of my dad and other relatives when James Street engineered the winning drive.

I like writing on BON because it is the cleanest, most intelligent sports blog, period and just so happens to be a Longhorn blog. I hope you find my comments interesting and stimulating - that's how I certainly find yours.

Now that the results practice has slipped out of public eyes, into the ears of selected sportswriters and onto the mouths of coaches and selected, usually senior, players, the dedicated fan longs...

Reading the Tea Leaves

With unbridled enthusiasm for football like the foam in a boiling pot, Horns fans are salivating for the season. The murmur of "Texas Fight" in our subconscious begins to leak into our unguarded...

New Year's Resolutions - where are we now?

Right after the big win over Arizona State, I jotted down a few New Year's resolutions for the Longhorns and expressed the vain hope that 2 would come true. So... given nothing else to do on a...

When things start going south....

Look to the north... for an example of how not to do things. As much as we BONers complain about the ingenuity and boldness of Greg Davis, Mack Brown, things could be worse. Nebraska's football...

Where no UT fan has gone before...

Or at least not since 1997. Gloom and doom has set in around the Longhorn fan base this week, for two reasons it seems to me. One is the "free fall" of our anticipation of excitement from UT. Our...
