Four games into the season, Texas has beaten one bad team solidly, lost badly to two mediocre teams, and squeeked out a win against another bad team. What does that make the Texas Longhorns?
It makes them a bad team as well, although one with a bit more heart than I thought before yesterday.
The K State game was badly officiated from top to bottom, but the last few minutes were ridiculous. It really got the crowd fired up, however. …
The mood was a bit grim walking into the Frank Erwin Center today, after the embarrassment in Provo. Hook ‘Em worked the crowd, trying to discourage negativity, but he didn’t have a whole lot of success.
The scheduled speaker was originally to be Manny Diaz, but he obviously had to be replaced. While we would have received very interesting answers to our questions from Coach Diaz, they sent Major Applewhite instead.
I anticipated lots of hard questions for Coach Applewhite. …
I attended my first Austin Longhorn Club lunch today. It’s held the Thursday before every Texas Longhorn home game, and features a speaker from the coaching staff. This week, it was Coach Mack Brown.
The event is held at the Erwin Center. On the way in, I asked how many people were expected.
The man at the name tag table hemmed and hawed a bit. He said that it’s usually 250 to 300 people, and usually about 500 when Coach …
Please be aware that this situation is highly fluid. What I’m writing below is speculation based upon rumor. Even if it’s accurate right now, it could change in an hour.

I’d be happy with this choice. Shannon wasn’t a very good head coach, but …
While there’s no official word, everybody under the sun is reporting that Greg Davis is being moved to an administrative position within Belmont. Many believe that an official announcement will be made either Friday or Saturday.
Top names being given as Holgorsen (Oklahoma State) and Malzahn (Auburn). The former studied under Leach, and Okie Light had one of the most balanced, consistent offenses this year that didn’t have a mallard as a mascot.
And there’s been some speculation that Malzahn …
With the season over, and little to talk about in college football until signing day and the NFL draft, I thought I would take a look at my all time favorite Longhorns.
This is based upon nothing by my personal opinion and biases, but current players are not eligible. Therefore, Colt McCoy, who would otherwise likely make the list, will have to wait until next year.
I'm also going to limit it to guys who I can actually remember playing college ball, which limits us to about the mid-Seventies. This disqualifies amazing players like Tommy Nobis, Bill Bradley, and James Street. Sorry guys, I only had limited control over when I was born.
