Shout out to D.J. Augustin

I know when we think of Longhorns in the NBA, we only focus on Durant and Aldridge, but D.J. Augustin somehow found his shooting stroke and resurrected his NBA career in Chicago. Now the Bulls who...

Thon Maker - 7'1" KD/KG hybrid!

2

UT recruiting experts, anyone know if we have a shot at this guy? I read on another forum that he's done some work with John Lucas. With his son Jai being on our staff, I wonder if that could somehow help UT establish a relationship with him. What an incredible talent. A 7'1" center with guard skills. Whatever school that's lucky enough to get him is an instant Final Four contender.

Great article about Rick Barnes on USA Today

1

Lots of insight on recruiting as well. Heavy AAU influence in Texas and Barnes' insistence on maintaining a clean program seems to be a major reason why we haven't had much success recruiting locally (and psst.. why Baylor is inexplicably getting these talented players) UT admitted not recruiting Forte from OSU was a mistake -- especially considering it could've helped us get Marcus Smart.

Cleveland Browns to trade Colt McCoy after drafting Brandon Weeden

35

He fits with the Texans scheme wise. Doesn't have a big arm (similar to Matt Schaub) but can run the bootleg with his mobility. Would have no problem acquiring him for a 6th/7th round pick. Provides additional competition for T.J. Yates since Matt Leinart is gone.

Quincy Miller has change of heart, declares for NBA draft

Baylor will still be a contender next year, but this is definitely good news.

Avery Bradley - defensive beast

+

Nothing new for any of us who followed AB's brief career at Texas, but lineup-specific stats suggest that when Bradley is paired up with Garnett or Rondo, the results are devastating on the defensive side. His decision to go pro early has worked out. Ray Allen's injury gave him starting minutes for the Celtics and he proved himself as a very useful role player. Good for him.

To Baylor and Scott Drew haters - time to rejoice

"The men's and women's basketball programs at Baylor University are facing possible NCAA sanctions following an investigation that uncovered more than 1,200 impermissible phone calls and text messages during a 29-month span." The NCAA is considering this a "major violation" due to the large number of impermissible calls/texts. Punishment could include loss of future scholarships for both mens/womens basketball. Uh oh! Is anyone surprised though? I'm sure Rick Barnes and Bobby Knight are quietly celebrating at this revelation of Baylor cheating.

Bobby Petrino placed on admistrative leave

Couldn't have happened to a better guy. "The Razorbacks coach was put on paid administrative leave on Thursday night less than seven hours after his boss, athletic director Jeff Long, learned Petrino had failed to disclose he had been riding with a female employee half his age when his motorcycle skidded off the road over the weekend."

Interesting graphic that came out of the annual MIT sports analytics conference. This is an NBA shot chart that basically tells you which shots net you the most points per attempt on average. While this graphic isn't surprising, it further confirms the value of the corner three and scoring inside.

Durant gets his first 50+ point game

What a game for stat lovers. Durant's 51 and Westbrook's 40 marks the first time teammates have gone for 40+ points since some other duo named Jordan and Pippen. Also, Serge Ibaka had an unconventional triple-double: 14 pts, 15 rebs, 11 blks

Right now Texas is in the "First Four Out". If you ask me, this is good news, seeing how we are somehow very close to getting in despite a really mediocre resume. This tells me we are only a couple of quality wins in the Big XII away from avoiding bubble team status.

Every year, you're going to see the "WTF!?" outliers in the voting. Alabama/OSU ended up in a very close margin, but I wanted to see if those outliers made a difference.

Absolutely sickening story at Penn State

7

Former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight young men and the current Penn State athletic director and another administrative official did absolutely nothing about it. In fact, they lied in court that he never knew about it even though complaints were brought to him. "Attorney General Linda Kelly called him "a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys."" "It is also a case about high-ranking university officials who allegedly failed to report the sexual assault of a young boy after the information was brought to their attention, and later made false statements to a grand jury," Kelly said. Ugly, ugly story, and I think everyone wants to hear Joe Pa's reaction to this.

Mack Brown on a Mobile

Tremendous and very informative insight from Coach Brown about Garrett Gilbert, last season's failure, the Longhorn Network, former OC Greg Davis, and Texas A&M going to the SEC. This is totally the real Mack Brown.

A&M SECeding doesn't even work out for them financially

2

We already know it would be bad for their football program. Turns out going to the SEC would also require them to essentially take a pay cut. Now I really hope they make the move. "Texas A&M and Team No. 14 are expected to receive a pro rata share equal to what the SEC’s 12 current universities are making: an average of about $18 million in league payouts. (Individual universities can make more money from their separate television deals.) The SEC deal, which ends in 2025, has a few windows when it can be renegotiated but no one from the SEC or the networks expects any radical change. So the notion that Texas A&M will see a significant financial gain by going to the SEC is not true. While the SEC offers more long-term security, the Big 12 could end up with a television deal in four years that surpasses the annual payout of the SEC, according to Joel Lulla, a New York-based lawyer who is the Big 12’s television consultant. Starting next season, A&M is guaranteed $20 million of total revenue from the Big 12. Once the Big 12 negotiates its deal that expires in four years, Texas A&M would be poised to make more money. Texas A&M also has to deal with a potentially significant buyout that will be in the neighborhood of $15 million. "Economically, unless the SEC opens their TV deals to the extent where they make more than a pro rata increase, it makes no sense at all," Lulla said."
