In this Spring ball edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar, we discuss, duh, spring ball. The first handful of practices are in the books and El Cohiba Grande weighs in on what’s up both on and off the field with Charlie Strong’s second group of gridiron gladiators. Aside from football, obviously a lot has gone down in the last 48 hours for the Texas basketball program.

In this edition of Mondays of the Humidor we spend most of our time recovering from a spring break without any football. We still have some bulleted information to tide you over before spring ball, but it’s not going to be the comprehensive information that you’re used to. On the basketball front, things seem to be getting heated as factions play point and counter point while Rick Barnes’ job hangs in the balance.

In this abbreviated Spring Break edition of Mondays in the Humidor, our sources will get into the team mindset as it gets ready for spring ball. The kids have earned a nice long week of rest and relaxation but they all know it’s the calm before the storm. Lay off the Jack and Coke lads, Coach Moorer looms large.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ll focus almost entirely on the team’s prospects as they go into spring ball. In the last week we’ve had eyes on every unit and there are some surprises to say the least. We’ll also talk a little bit about projections along the offensive line and defensive secondary that should come to fruition once the season starts.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ve got two issues on tap — strength and conditioning in Texas’ offseason program, and the Rick Barnes execution watch as it were. Weeks away from spring ball, and the Longhorns are having productive winter workouts unlike last season when the order of the day was for the coaching staff to get guys to quit.

In this Valentine’s edition of Monday’s in the Humidor we’re throwing bouquets and breaking hearts with depth chart madness you can’t get anywhere else. As a “can’t get it anywhere else” aside, if you haven’t picked up the Inside Texas Firemen’s calendar, you’ll want to spend the $5.95 for March and April alone for Ian Boyd and Justin Wells’ ode to 50 Shades of Gray.

In this edition of Monday’s in the Humidor we have a special hacker free version. Out with the Commodore Computers and in with some player personnel news that should give you more insight to what is going on as the team heads into spring. The Cigar walks us through what is going on with some of the younger guys and a couple of players who need the light to come on quick before their time on the 40 is done. We’ll also talk a little bit about the quarterback position. Hint…

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor as Longhorn nation girds its loins for what should be an interesting and hopefully fruitful signing day, we’ll give you roster breakdown of sorts. Coach Strong is trying to fill some holes and our source has a breakdown of what needs fixin’ at this point if you’re the Texas staff.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor it wouldn’t be a proper piece if we didn’t hit on some recruiting, especially with signing day nearly a week away and the likelihood of the bat guano possibly hitting the proverbial fan in College Station if things fall the way those in the know think it will fall.
