Today in Inside the Humidor we have some insight as to what’s going on with weekly workouts as Fall camp is fast approaching. Our sources talk about the young guns expected to see the field when the Fighting Irish hit Austin and also have a little bit of intel on what the current situation is with realignment in the Big 12. With Grant of Rights set to expire in what seems like a 100 years, Texas seems poised to take its medicine with the addition of the Cougs and Bearkats?

Today on Inside the Humidor we continue with summer workout information. Not much new here, but at least it seems the kids are fighting through the wall they seemingly hit last week. We’ll also talk a little bit the offensive depth chart. Not much news here but all eyes are on Patrick Hudson to see if he can make some noise and shake up the depth chart a bit. Finally, there’s a tidbit on the AD that you won’t want to miss as we continue the dog days of summer.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’re back to a tidbits format.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ve got some good team information all things considered as we head into the dog days of summer. While the offense should be feeling its oats coming off a stellar spring, the unit is not without serious concern. We’ll tell you what is keeping Sterlin Gilbert and company up at night and it’s not the quarterback position.
