Maryland's Gary Williams retires

No idea if Barnes would be interested, but a huge job just opened in college basketball.

"PU" may not be as innocent as you think

The NCAA just slapped the damaging "lack of institutional control" label on Boise State for an "alleged major violation in women's tennis and secondary violations in four sports, including football".

Of course all this is subject to change since the deadline to declare for the draft isn't till later this month. Andy Katz has Texas at #4 for now. Katz video here Dick Vitale ranks UT #3

Has nothing to do with UT sports, but if you've appreciated former Texas Tech RB Baron Batch's writing in the past, you will certainly love this piece. This one blows minds.

NBA DraftExpress on Tristan Thompson

8

Thought I'd share some of his tweets on TT: "Tristan Thompson's offensive limitations looked very clear. Scouts want to know how he'll score in the NBA? Cannot post-up, create or shoot." "Problem w/Tristan Thompson already announcing he's returning is he's a 20-year old freshman. Better come back a substantially better player." (I didn't realize he was already 20) "If Tristan Thompson doesn't come back with some new offensive wrinkles, NBA executives might not be so sympathetic. Needs to be careful." "Tristan Thompson is a hot name. Some NBA teams project him as a lottery pick. Don't think his stock can improve, either stays same or drops." "Some flashbacks with Elias Harris (projected 1st rounder, returned, stock bombed) here w/Tristan Thompson. Hope he doesn't regret this move."

Jordan Hamilton's Terrible Timeout

Obviously I'm posting this because I agree with him. What happened with the 5-second violation was a total travesty, but none of that happens if a timeout wasn't called to begin with.

Titans will try to trade Vince Young

1

"The Tennessee Titans intend to try and trade quarterback Vince Young rather than release him, according to league sources. Young is due a $4.25 million roster bonus 10 days after the start of the league year, whenever there's a new collective bargaining agreement. It originally had been thought Young was due the bonus March 10."

UT basketball ranked 7th/8th in latest AP/Coaches Poll

ESPN's Bracketology is also out, and Texas is already a 2 seed. You can see in the brackets that our goal should be to maintain at least a 2 seed. A 1 seed is not necessary, as a 2 seed will most likely get us into the San Antonio region, where we would "unfairly" get a huge home-court advantage in the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight (against what would be 1 seed Pittsburgh in this bracket). I wouldn't exactly expect a pro-UT crowd in Tulsa with the Cowboy/Sooner fans in attendance, but with the Final Four in Houston, we have a great opportunity to win the whole thing.

"BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU and Les Miles have agreed in principle to a new contract that will run through the 2017 season. LSU athletic director Joe Alleva says Miles' annual pay of a little more than $3.75 million will remain the same."

Even with the loss at home to UConn, Joe Lunardi has Texas as a #3 seed and trending up. Thank you Rick Barnes and your tough non-conference schedule.

Texas Tech on probation for 2 years due to texting recruits

"LUBBOCK, Texas -- The NCAA put Texas Tech on two years of probation Friday for a series of recruiting violations, saying 16 coaches or assistants sent nearly 1,000 impermissible text messages to football, softball and golf prospects."

Reds/Cards have some additional competition in the NL Central, especially from a starting pitching standpoint. Brewers just acquired Greinke, Garza to the Cubs. Astros? Well... nothing yet.

Nebraska's Chancellor Unhappy with Bo Pelini's Antics

20

"""OMAHA, Neb. -- Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman isn't happy with coach Bo Pelini's behavior. Perlman said Sunday that Pelini's verbal assault of officials during Saturday's game at Texas A&M did not reflect well on the university or the football program. "I think it was very unfortunate," Perlman said, "and I think it's something we'll have to address with Bo." The game was televised on ABC, and Perlman said he felt uneasy about the numerous camera shots of Pelini's outbursts. Perlman spoke Sunday morning with athletic director Tom Osborne about Pelini's conduct, and the chancellor said he, Osborne or both would talk to Pelini about his decorum."""

VY might be done for the year

For multiple reasons. First, he injured his thumb in the 3rd quarter during a throw and did not return. Secondly, he once again pouted on the sidelines. Jeff Fisher supposedly called him out in the media after the game. Unlikely that Fisher will start him the rest of the season.
