Aaron Williams, Sam Acho on Dr. Saturday's Up-and-Coming List

7

Title says it all. These two 'Horns are getting some respect from Dr. Saturday, ending up on his all-up-and-coming team. I think Acho's going to have his work cut out for him to earn and keep the starting job, but I do believe he's going to get plenty of meaningful playing time either way. Defensive End: Sam Acho • Texas While the Longhorns were waiting for more hyped recruits Eddie Jones, Lamarr Houston and Russell Carter to round into form, Acho quietly worked his way onto the field immediately in 2007, notched three sacks last year off the bench and slides into a starting role this fall at a position that's produced four draft picks (Brian Orakpo, Tim Crowder, Brian Robison and Cory Redding) in the last seven years. Cornerback: Aaron Williams • Texas Williams was mostly restricted to nickel and dime (it is the Big 12) roles as a true freshman, a reasonable destination for him again considering Texas returns two of its three front line corners, Chykie Brown and Deon Beasley, and another reserve, Curtis Brown, who played more than Williams in '08. But Williams apparently lived up to his outsized recruiting hype in the spring, exiting with an inside track on deposing Beasley as a regular starter.

Steve McNair Found Shot To Death

It's not really Longhorns-related, but it's relevant to a lot of football fans, especially those of the Houston Oilers and Vince's predecessor at Tennessee. NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Former Titans quarterback Steve McNair has been killed. Police said McNair suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head in downtown Nashville. RIP, Steve. You were a good guy.

"Like, maybe we play Penn State this year, Notre Dame next year," Saban said. "I don't know, who's another Alabama (connection)? Texas, Southern Cal -- if you just got those and just kind of rolled (them over). It would make it easier for scheduling, too." BOH comment: Any takers?

USC linebackers tested positive for steroids at NFL combine

26

Can't say I'm shocked, should this prove to be true. It comes from a source that isn't exactly iron-clad, but it's worth watching. USC LB’s Brian Cushing & Clay Matthews tested positive for steroids at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to various sources, including one NFL team.

Schedule swap: Tech now 8/19, UCF now 11/7

1

"The move was made to accommodate a request by ESPN and either Texas or the Big 12 Conference, allowing Texas and Texas Tech to play Sept. 19 in primetime on ABC. The Longhorns and Red Raiders were originally scheduled to play on Nov. 7. I think it's a good idea to accommodate ESPN and keep the game on the schedule rather than just accepting a financial penalty Texas would pay to kick UCF off the schedule and line up another opponent. TV schedules have not been set, but I would be really surprised if the UCF-Texas game is not on national television." I guess it'll be nice to face one semi-decent team before heading to Dallas to face OU, and of course UCF will be a nice reprieve before the Baylor-KU-TAMU gauntlet...

Cobi Hamilton chooses Arkansas. I don't know much about the kid except that he was a late offer, played with Mallett in HS, and is a bigger possession receiver.  I don't fault the kid, since Ark...
