Stop eating so fast. Stop checking your phone. Stop riding so close to that guy’s bumper. Stop listening to talk radio. Stop snapping at everybody. Stop. Every year at this time, since I started this gig in the spring of 2006, I write this column. The Texas Longhorns have a predictable way of causing their fans to consider jumping off tall buildings.
Most of you, I would suspect, will not agree with what I’m about to say. If you are on this site, you probably are serious about your Longhorns, you have high expectations for UT sports teams, and you want the school to always strive to do the right thing.
Which is why Augie Garrido should be allowed to finish his contract next year as the Texas baseball coach.
The headlines use the word “flirting” when discussing possible discussions between the Big 12 and a list of suitors who would love to maneuver themselves into a Power Five conference.
It certainly makes perfect sense for the non-Power Five schools to flirt their way to the big buffet table of money: revenue generated by the big dawgs in the big conferences is obscene. Everybody wants a big piece of the green pie.
Here are my Five Quick Thoughts following Texas’ 23-17 win over Baylor Saturday in Waco.
A road game awaits Texas offensive play caller Jay Norvell this week. But despite this rather foreboding prospect, Norvell appeared relatively confident Tuesday night – and a tad less testy – than he did at the same media gathering the week prior.
AUSTIN — Embattled Texas offensive play caller Jay Norvell touched on a variety of topics Tuesday at his weekly media availability session that was probably not a fun exercise in wake of Saturday’s shut out against Iowa State.
AUSTIN — Jay Norvell is clearly not overly concerned with winning football games in a way that’s aesthetically pleasing. He is, however, interested in winning football games.
AUSTIN — Texas offensive play-caller Jay Norvell has known Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder for “half my life.” More from Norvell, Heard, and Hall’s IT Daily Dose.
Normally we do Five Quick Thoughts, but today’s game deserved more thoughts, in my opinion, so I added one after UT’s 24-17 win over Oklahoma in Dallas.
AUSTIN — Sifting through the carnage of Saturday’s 50-7 meltdown at TCU, Texas offensive play-caller Jay Norvell was surprisingly positive at his Tuesday media availability. Of course, he doesn’t really have a choice.
