Texas official: ASU's Steve Patterson will be next Longhorns AD

Per the article, Patterson had not been formally interviewed at the time he reportedly rejected an offer, but "emerged as the favorite early Tuesday morning and agreed to take the job a few hours later." Grains of salt all around, but it's out there.

M. Sco...Thayer Evans indicts OK St of Miles era; Larry Porter implicated

Larry Porter allegedly made payments to OSU players under Les Miles. That's just one of many alleged infractions in the article that names several former players as sources. No word on which parts were "spiced up."

Your daily SEC misinformation: "Longhorn Network makes playing Texas worthless: Just ask Ole Miss"

Despite having enough time to learn what happened in the partial-crumbling of the Big 12, SBN writer Steven Godfrey perpetuates the Nebraska and TAMU myth about why they left the conference.The point of the game was and is national exposure, and the Rebels just got a taste of what sent Texas A&M into the neighborhood.

Johnny Manziel apparently has a tattoo. Well, several, really, but one in particular is interesting: it's a Longhorn on his left rib area. Apologies if this is a re-post, but I didn't see any others.

Athlon's Top 25 Players of the BCS era

There are "only" two Longhorns on the list, but they were #6 Ricky Williams and #2 Vince Young. The author says VY was the greatest player he's ever seen on a college gridiron, which fuels the discussion of whether he or Tebow really deserves to be #1.

WVU's Holgorsen reportedly kicked out of casino by police

10

From the Charleston Daily Mail: Holgorsen's behavior allegedly reached a point that necessitated involvement from on-site security, sources said. Holgorsen was escorted out of the casino with the episode caught on surveillance. University representatives who were with Holgorsen were said to have then intervened. No arrest was made. Police records indicate Metro 911 received a call from the casino at 3:13 a.m. that night. A "white male" was said to be "refusing to cooperate with the casino's management." Casino supervisors had the male detained at the time. The Nitro Police Department was dispatched to the scene. The official records do not say what happened next, but it's believed Holgorsen was released under the supervision of those he was with.

UT senior left tackle Kyle Hix, who has 37 career starts, will miss Saturday's game against Oklahoma State with a concussion, the Longhorns announced Thursday night. That leaves the critical spot in the hands of redshirt freshman Paden Kelley.

Tim Brewster could be fired if Purdue beats Minny tomorrow

5

Minnesota would not confirm nor deny a report Friday that it will fire coach Tim Brewster if the team loses Saturday at Purdue. Citing sources with knowledge of the situation, 1500espn.com reported Friday that the university drafted a press release and media plan Thursday to institute if the Gophers lose Saturday to fall to 1-6. The 1500espn.com report said Brewster would have to decide whether he wants to remain as coach for the season's final five games. Eh...anyone want him back as tight ends coach?

Big 12 approves round-robin football schedule

7

As most probably expected, the Big 12 will play a round-robin schedule, meaning nine conference games per year. Teams like Texas and OU at the Cotton Bowl (or KU-Mizzou at Arrowhead), who play big games at neutral sites, will play four home games, four away games, and the one neutral-site game.

Sergio Kindle hospitalized with head injury

11

From PFT: We've confirmed that Ravens linebacker Sergio Kindle has been hospitalized with a head injury suffered on Thursday night. A league source tells us that Kindle initially had some swelling inside his skull, but the situation has since improved significantly. "Members of our medical staff, including Bill Tessendorf and Dr. Andy Tucker, have spoken with doctors in Texas. We understand Sergio is stable at this time and that he is being tested and observed," Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said in a release posted on the team's website. (more at the link)

Longhorns at the Senior Bowl: measurements

44

The surprising news to me is that Houston comes in just a shade under 6'3", which definitely has to be good for his draft stock. Hell, that's definitely at least an inch taller than Glenn Dorsey was. I was concerned Houston would only be 6' even. #33 Lamarr Houston DL Texas 6′ 2.75" 302lbs. 33" reach 9 1/2" hands #38 Roddrick Muckelroy LB Texas 6′ 1.625" 236lbs. 32" reach 9" hands

3-4 draft prospect rankings

2

I'm not usually one who goes nuts for the smaller sites that look like they were made by some guy with a laptop in his mother's basement, but this one actually impressed me. I agree with the rankings on the NTs, except I might put Troup at #3. Kindle, Sapp, and Hardy should all be higher at OLB. But overall, it does a solid job of listing all the guys I'd consider relevant at the positions that are of particular interest to teams running the 3-4.

An Argument Against Colt McCoy

11

Colt McCoy’s stellar collegiate career has him high on the NFL Draft radar, regarded by some as a potential first-round pick. The dual-threat quarterback has four years of starting experience and results against good competition, and possesses the intangibles that will give him a chance to succeed. Faced with the daunting task of replacing Vince Young and defending a national championship as a freshman, the perennial Heisman candidate and 2009 Maxwell Award winner had a career completion percentage of 70.33, just shy of the all-time mark held by Hawaii’s Colt Brennan (70.39 percent). This study, however, analyzed each throws from four games this season (at Oklahoma State, vs. Kansas, at Texas A&M and vs. Nebraska) in an argument against McCoy’s draft status and future in the NFL, exposing his accuracy by an offense heavily aided by short passes. The Texas offense uses safe passes as a substitute for running plays and is notorious for short routes such as quick screens, slants, shovel passes and working underneath against defensive backs. Colt may have the ultimate gunslinger name, but with the following analysis it is easy to see that he will not live up to his name at the next level. Each of McCoy’s throws in the four games were tracked on the basis of excluding yards after catch and recording completion percentage on throws behind the line of scrimmage versus 1-9, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39 and 40+ yards downfield. In this study, McCoy completed 66.67 percent of passes, slightly below the 70.6 percent on the 2009 season. During these games he threw for nine touchdowns and three interceptions, a ratio higher than the 2.25 TD/INT for the season and the 2.48 for his career.

2010 BCS National Championship Game Program

+

Pretty neat guide, 204pgs. long. It runs through all the games for each team this season, plus all the usual stuff. What it does not list is the halftime performance, which I've been trying to find for a while. Normally the BCS does something brilliant, like pushing Lenny Kravitz to the back of the stage while Ashlee Simpson lip-syncs her way into the hearts of football fans, but I'd really just like to know.
