Since Will won’t be able to make Big 12 Media Days, 4th and 5 gives him an opportunity to ask each Big 12 coach one question, plus some thoughts on each team going into this season. We also dip into the mailbag to answer some more questions.
The NCAA released a statement on Tuesday regarding Texas C Mohamed Bamba’s eligibility.
We talk about the latest news on the 40 Acres, including Corona’s new role in Longhorn athletics, who is going to Big 12 Media Days, the power of revenue in college football, and more.
The sweltering heat made its expected appearance in College Station for the State 7-on-7 Championship. I was able to catch up with some prospects, both on and not quite yet on Texas’ radar. I knocked out most of my interviews on Friday since elimination games begin Saturday. I’ll watch a lot of the players closely today to get a better feel for their play.
Late June and early July marks the beginning of the contact dead period for college football coaches. In order to fill that void, The Opening puts on their elite event in Oregon. At the same time in the Texas heat, high school 7-on-7 teams from all over the state gather in College Station to try and battle for the Texas State 7-on-7 Championship.
Throughout this century, Texas has been able to pick up more than a handful of 5-star prospects to play in burnt orange at the Erwin Center. Before freshman Mohamed Bamba’s recent decision, former Horn and the Brooklyn Nets’ 22nd overall pick Jarrett Allen was the next 5-star, one and done talent, destined to lead Texas to relative success thanks to his elite skill level.
Despite substandard results on the hardwood from the Longhorn basketball program in the last five seasons, they continue to thrive on the one night the NBA holds its amateur draft.
That Texas tradition continued tonight when freshman center/forward Jarrett Allen was selected by the Brooklyn Nets with the 22nd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
I join Will Baizer on the 4th and 5 podcast to recap the Texas Heats Wave, Brandon Hodges’ departure, and talk at length about Texas’ future basketball facility.
One of the best ways to enjoy at hot summer day is to call a few friends over, open up the grill, and hang out by the pool.
Texas football took this notion to heart today as Tom Herman and his staff hosted the Texas Heat Wave pool party on campus in Austin.
After a 39-24 campaign in his first season as Texas head coach, David Pierce has brought a renewed energy to the program. Last year, the team was sitting at home during late May watching as other teams played during a time Texas rarely misses out on. This season, Pierce was one game away from two consistent goals of the Longhorn baseball program; hosting an NCAA regional and advancing to the super regional round.
