2015 Post-Season

I Have a Dream I’m not sure exactly when it began but it must have been within a year or two after I graduated from U.T. that I started having an all-too-real reoccurring dream. In this dream, I’m on my way to taking a final exam for a class that I hadn’t attended once the entire semester.  I don’t know if it qualifies for being a nightmare, but it’s darned unpleasant, and I feel a great sense of relief when I wake up.  Many years ago, I told my brother David about this dream.  He said that he used to […]

Ali McGraw is kind of cute too.  Anyway, the […]

Therefore, I give you Willie Earl Remnants 2015. The Texas Football Cartel Texas has just signed a 15-year $200 million apparel contract with Nike. The deal is easily the richest deal in college sports. Michigan signed a 15-year deal this summer for $169 million, […]

West Virginia Post-Game

Charlie Strong Should be Retained for 2016 It was a bit of an outlier that a 4-5 team would have only seven turnovers through nine games.  So Texas was due to lose a game because of turnovers.  Texas had more total yards, rushing yards, passing yards, and time of possession than West Virginia.  In many ways, it was Texas’ second most well-played game of the year. But when one of your go-to offensive weapons is Tyrone Swoopes, and your starting quarterback is a redshirt freshman who has only attempted about 100 passes that traveled beyond the line of scrimmage, you’re […]
