Santa Dirk Video

Not the funniest video they've produced, but Dirk is always great.

Cameron Ridley commits to Texas

[Update]: As the OP says, this is a big-time commitment for a program that desperately needed an interior player in the 2012 class and Ridley fits that bill as a pure post, if a bit undersized at 6-9. More on Ridley later. Hook 'em, Cameron! --GoBR-- Big-time. Barnes locks up another top recruit.

Abilene vs. Belton Prospects

I'm attending David Ash's game tonight as Belton plays Abilene at the Alamodome for part of the Texas Football Classic. I'm sure OK State commit Hershel Sims will be impressive, but I was...

Perot alleges insolvency and other bs.

New NCAA Recruiting Rule Limits Head Coaches In-Waiting

An NCAA rule adopted 1-16-10 applies all recruiting limitations currently reserved for head coaches to head coaches in-waiting.  It covers any FBS assistants publicly designated to become the next...

Dooley from La. Tech now at the top of Tennessee's list.

Volunteers look to make a splash (as small as possible, like in diving).

Kevin Arnovitz praises Ahmad Nivins - Summer League Roundup

"Ahmad Nivins looks like a pro player -- long, muscular, athletic, and coordinated. The but that usually follows this profile is ... lacks fundamentals, or doesn't have a post game. With Nivins, though, that doesn't appear to be the case. He displays good footwork, moves around the floor with purpose, and is a beast on the boards. When you ask folks here why he dropped to No. 56 in the draft, you get a lot of shrugs, followed by a soft endorsement of his skills. He's had a nice week thus far -- 14 points and 6 rebounds per game on 51.6 percent shooting from the field. The only apparent drawback is that he looks waaaay too wound up on the court, and that intensity occasionally works against him."

Johnson out of running for Pistons Coaching Vacancy

Avery says they were unable to agree on a vision for the future. Apparently, Detroit wasn't ready to commit to a four year deal.

Posnanski picks the Longhorns to reach the Elite 8

In his whimsical 64 second NCAA bracket feature, Texas upsets Duke and Villanova before falling to Pitt.

Jaric cleared of misconduct allegations.

Marko Jaric accused of sexual assault in Philadelphia, but the claims have been deemed untrue upon closer investigation.

This was an amazing shot. Congrats to Devin.

Oklahoma State is Tonight!!!

Hello there, Longhorns.  I'm completely surprised that tonight's home game has not been mentioned today on BON.  I know everyone is disappointed with our recent play and current losing streak,...

Finally, the SI Cheerleader of the Week is from UT

Not much explanation is needed here. Chaps are great.

Gabe Muoneke assaulted after CBA Game

Van Gundy mentioned this during last night's Rockets game. Apparently Liu Wei went after Muoneke with a water bottle (!) after a recent CBA game. He avoided fighting since his family was present. Anyway, it's an unfortunate way for a former Longhorn to make the news.

Mack Brown Love

This Posnanski article only scratches the surface of what most BONers already know, but it's nice to see Mack get the attention. I like how he comes right out and says this:"Mack Brown IS the best college football coach in America. I'm not offering this up as an opinion. I don't even see how anyone else has a case."

Watching the Game in Austin

I wanted to start a thread regarding the best places to watch the Horns beat hell outta ou this Saturday for those of us who unfortunately won't be making the trip up I-35.  Standards such as...

Josh Smith signs Grizzlies' $58MM Offer Sheet

He'd rather play for Memphis??? This must be the best deal he could find, but Atlanta can still match the offer. This could nicely solidify a young core for the Grizz. So much for all of that cap space, I guess.

Sooner Recruit Jarboe Kicked Off Team for Packing (Heat)

One of OU's '08 WR recruits has been dismissed for gun charges of carrying a pistol at his high school + getting caught by the asst. principal. Apparently, he also likes to rap about shooting people.

Lion's West Point draft pick ordered to give up football

This is a shame, as I was looking forward to seeing this player in action. The article doesn't say much, but his provision to be serve as recruiter while in the NFL has been revoked/superceded by a newer DoD policy.

Can the Mavs renege?

This is probably just wishful thinking.  Is there any chance the front office says, "Thank you, Devean, we really dodged a bullet there.  We can now keep Harris, Diop's interior help, our draft...
