UT ex shares Masters lead

Jordan Spieth, with two birdies in the last five holes, pulled into a tie (with Bubba Watson) after 54 holes of The Masters. Spieth has been one of the major stories on the PGA Tour the last year...

Daje Johnson commits

Glad to see the offer finally come through for Daje. --GoBR-- From a couple of twitter posts, Daje Johnson switched his commitment from TCU to Texas a few minutes ago.

Walk-on kicker


Recruitocosm is reporting Texas has received a commitment from kicker-punter Nick Rose of Highland Park

Mack news conference


Mack Brown to speak at 2 p.m. Any thoughts on topics?

Snow, Randall named All-Big 12


Houston Chronicle/SA Express News selections


You can't keep it secret!

Gotta share this. Seems particularly pertinent after Mack Brown’s (more complete than usual) blackout of Thursday night’s scrimmage. Summer 1968. Emory Bellard was installing the wishbone option...

Ruffin traded, promoted to majors


Didn't take long to get from Disch-Falk to The Show

Tariq Allen returns


Surprise here. Back as a walk-on.

Golden Spikes award


Taylor Jungmann is one of three finalists; announcement tonight.

Turner, Shipley, Bergeron turning heads


The Statesman's Kirk Bohls reports that three incoming freshmen are making summer statements in the ongoing workouts. Jaxon Shipley is no surprise. Josh Turner sounds encouraging -- looks like we'll be playing 1 sophomore and 3-4 freshmen at corner this season. Bohls says FB Joe Bergeron is a workout and fitness geek. Less promising is the report on a pair of frosh linebackers, Chet Moss and Steve Edmond.

Absolutely no regrets


Look back at Austin Wood's 169-pitch relief appearance from the Houston Chronicle

Turgeon to Maryland?


Dallas Morning News, from Fox


Thoughts on attrition?

  So . . . just noodlin’ on something while waiting out a pitching change. Way too many of those in MLB. Screw you, Tony La R . . .   Eyeing the football season, we’re sitting at 87 players on...


A mystery solved

Until this weekend, I had hopes for our offense. Our BASEBALL offense. No more. Details after the jump.  


It'll be up to the kids

  Have you tried to project next year's depth chart? I fiddled with it this week. I came away surprised at how few Sr.’s and Jr.’s made the list. Mack Brown usually does a news conference before...


Not The Big Brother Anymore...

With the announcement of Stacy Searels as offensive line coach, Mack’s makeover is complete. Unless/until somebody else leaves. Counting the strength & conditioning coach, that’s seven new faces on...

Planting a seed?


Mack Brown's Wednesday update. (It's here.) Near the bottom, talking about dealing with coaches in difficult times, Mack relates a Terry Donahue story. Maybe it's ol' suspicious me, but I couldn't help but think he was hinting at something.

Mike Davis out


Feared this when he didn't return last week.


Redshirting: The numbers game

  Mack Brown said recently he expects more true freshmen to play this year than in the past. You probably know Mack says this every year. At approximately the same time, using about the same...


Are we a catch? You bet

  I always knew we were a big fish in the world of football. I didn’t know we were THE big fish. I sure didn’t know how massive a big fish we are.  

Graduation day!


Among UT's grid graduates on Saturday were Kwame Cavil, who completed his eligibility in 2000, and Fozzy Whittaker, who earned his undergrad degree in three years. He has two years of football eligibility remaining. Roddrick Muckelroy flew in from Cincinnati for the ceremony. Full story

Former Longhorn, Aggie Zapalac


Good piece on long-time assistant coach Willie Zapalac, who died this week. He worked with Bear, Darrell, Bum. Story here.


Track question

Draft prospects


Good piece on Sergio Kindle's draft prospects. Of note -- an accompanying chart (which was in the print version but not in the online version linked here) was a round-by-round prediction for UT seniors. Charlie Tanner is listed as a siixth-round pick, interesting given that the perception on several fronts was that Adam Ulatoski (who is not projected) was our best OL last season. Chron's picks had Sergio and Earl Thomas in Round 1, Houston and McCoy in Round 2, Shipley in Round 3, Tanner sixth and Lawrence in Round 7.

Moving up


Baseball team edging back toward the top of the polls . . . 4-3-4-4 on the four updated at the moment (No. 6 by NCBW, which has not updated).

Westerman's decision


From the Arizona Republic


So many events, so little time

Helluva busy week at the (much more than) Forty Acres  . . .
