    2020 NCAA Football

    yes, they were. The players came in three phases. Upperclassmen in the Austin area reported for testing on 6/8. The rest of the players from outside the Austin area reported 6/15. The newly enrolled freshmen came 6/18. Every morning they are required to fill out a screening assessment and...

    The Last Dance

    The P-L-O chant was at Arizona State. It's still one of the first things I associate with that school. Every last one of those students should have been kicked out of school.

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    The game has passed Boeheim by in that Bowden at Florida State way. The program is stale and sliding into irrelevancy. Recruiting has gone down, development has stalled out, and the guy who should be coaching the team is racking up McDonald's All Americans at Washington. It's gonna be an ugly...

    2019 Longhorns Football

    I went to the fair last year during the game, but didn't get inside the stadium. I had my grade school aged kids with me, and it was hot as hell, but I managed to catch a good chunk of the game (and pretty much the entire 4th quarter) in between doing fair stuff. I enjoyed the experience, and...

    I saw Sterns at the UT soccer game today wearing a huge brace. From what I hear, I am skeptical about his return this season. Hoping for the best.

    2019 Longhorns Football

    that was the one thing I was pleasantly surprised with Johnson's play on Saturday night. He showed the ability to pick up some blitzes from the RB spot. For a guy who is new to the position (a massive qualified, to be sure), I think he is actually well suited to be a quick study on that aspect...

    2019 Longhorns Football

    RB depth is, indeed, scary. Ingram had a bone bruise and has been back to a full participant at practice for the last week or so. Whittington has a nagging groin injury related to a high school injury. It flares up time to time, but he has been a full participant at practice. Both Ingram and...

    2019 Longhorns Football

    I don't know if it'll help you feel better, but the RRR gave is the 6th game and 7th week of the season (La Tech, LSU, Rice, Ok St, BYE, WVU, OU), not week 5. I might be too close and have lost any hope of perspective, but I see a 10-2 type season. I think they lose one of LSU/Ou and a random...

    2019 College Football

    I'll be curious to see this dynamic up close. I went to the Syracuse/LSU game a few years ago (I'm a Syracuse fan by birth and now also a Texas fan since my wife works for UT Athletics and travels with the team). The LSU tailgate scene was hyped, and it certainly measured up. My father and I...

    2019 College Football

    The last WVU game was an 11AM kick in the rain, and had a pretty subdued vibe (at least according to my wife). They project to be pretty bad this year, though it has trap game written all over it for UT, as it comes after a bye week and right before the OU game. I was pretty stunned at how...

    2019 College Football

    I have Texas season tickets and arranged my work trips to coincide with Texas away games. If everything breaks right, the only games I won't attend at the WVU and ISU games. Not that I'm necessarily expecting it, but I also took the liberty of blocking out my work schedule for the playoff...

    AfterDraft ... Here come the FAs

    FWIW, he played tackle at Texas (and Rice, previously, as he grad transferred to Texas). He's been working on snapping in an effort to be more valuable, but at least in college he was a good pass blocker and a pretty poor run blocker. Both Anderson and Beck are very high character, disciplined...

    Road to Omaha -- 2019 College Baseball Thread

    great atmosphere tonight. Largest crowd since 2012 and the LSU fans definitely showed up with lots of tailgating. I'm already counting the days until the football game - I plan to be at the game both this year and next year in Baton Rouge. I saw Malcom Roach and Jordan Pouncey at the game...

    Road to Omaha -- 2019 College Baseball Thread

    I went to the Texas game yesterday - or at least game 1 of the doubleheader. Very young team (I noticed the freshman starting SS is a kid from New Hampshire), but for the first time in a while they seem to be developing talent. I'm curious to see if Bryce Elder can develop into a legit Friday...
