Horns vs. Cajuns Game Three Open Thread, 2nd Edition


The game is now tied 4-4 and the comments are flowing deep and fast, so it's time to rewind and bring this baby home. Workman is holding steady on the mound and LSU is close to having to dig into...

Vince and the Future


An analysis of Vincent Young's future from a long-time Longhorn observer: does the great future which beckoned in 2005 still possible?

The Golden Age in a new Century.


  Happy Holidays to one and all. A few weeks ago I suddenly wondered just how many of the 831 games Texas has won had I been witness to in one fashion or another, and how many of those victories...

Love Hurts even in the Cyber Stadia


A personal reflection on football, writing, interactivity and the nature of the game.

Enjoy the Day


Tech feels the pressure of greatness, and I have to contend with a dangerous Tech fan while the action is hot.


Sexy Dexy headin' downtown

Finally, a little good news from the basketball program concerning Dexter Pittman and his role this coming season. And he definitely will be the go-to guy in the paint. A couple of years of...


Fozzy Probable

 DMN reports on the Texas Injury Report. Fozzy is probable, so is Ian Harris. Buck Burnette is out. Plus there's this ending sentence: Last week, offensive coordinator Greg Davis said...

The Greatest Opportunity


Sometimes in this life the greatest opportunity happens to occur within the context of our greatest threats, in the midst of our most powerful fears, where our basic human dignity and integrity are...


Fozzy, Harris out for CU

The Austin American Statemen just released a statement noting that Fozzy Whitaker will not make the trip to Colorado. The article also noted that Ian Harris will not play, as well as Buck Burnette...

As the Knife Turns


Saturday, October 16, 1965. My hunger for football was approaching the heavenly, bloated level. The Horns were 4-0, ranked #1 and I had just experienced my first OU weekend, exhilarating in a 19-0...

Garrett Gilbert Patiently Taking Names


 Last century, Lake Travis football sucked.  It was not just that they were a losing program since their inception, they were considered soft, rich lake kids that ran the spread long before it was...

Ghost Runners in the Sky


Any physical stats for football players are suspect to some degree. I've even known coaches to fudge downwards, but for the same reasons as some enhance their players sizes and times.  One of the...

The Q-Package: Perspective and Resolution


The Q package seemed to come out of the frustration of last year, the lack of threat in so many games until JC got his wheels rolling. We needed more weapons, so it seemed, but what the Horns...

When the sun rises orange

While it may be 45 days until we finally start the season, it's only 18 days until the Horns hit the field for fall practice. The ESPN blog has now noted that Texas starts practice on Monday,...


One foot in the grave

The conventional wisdom took a season-long vacation last year.  There's also the conventional wisdom, the status quo, within the Longhorn community. Here's one: If you're losing to A&M or Baylor,...


Burnt Orange finds a way!

This post will deal with some stats that might be of value, but first I want to congratulate Marshevette Hooker and Leo Manzano for making the 2008 Olympic team this afternoon. Hooker was closing...


MOFOs on parade

  A month and a half ago, the greatest rarity in baseball occurred. On Monday, May 12, Toronto’s second-baseman Asdrubal Cabera turned an unassisted triple play, the second of this century for the...


Where We Feast

Later this week we shall give thanks for our bountiful harvest, however we may conceive it, and thank our lucky stars as we sit before our turkey and dressing and near our loved ones.As UT fans it...
