In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’re going to take you inside the locker room after the game. We’ll also talk a little film study after the ball game as well. And it wouldn’t be a proper Humidor if we didn’t take you inside the athletic department with some Steve Patterson tidbits there. We’ll talk about the past but we’re also happy about the future inside the Humidor.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ve got some inside the lines intel about what went down on Saturday night. Our eye in the sky takes us into the film room of sorts with some information you won’t get about the game anywhere else. Our Cigar connections also take us to the opposite sideline where we’ll discuss what Rice thought about Texas and its personnel.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar it’s akin to the day after a natural disaster. You get out of the house, assess the damage, and try to figure out the most efficient way to pick up the pieces. I suspect Charlie Strong is in a similar mode but he has to know that Rice is just the eye of the storm and there’s much more “bad weather” on the horizon in the coming weeks.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll once again keep inside the lines, for the most part, considering actual, real life football is upon us. El Cohiba Grande gives us the goods about what to expect this weekend against the Irish. The Cigar will talk unit by unit along with some macro-level talk that should have Horns fans pretty optimistic about Saturday.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll keep it between the lines as we did last week despite swirling rumors that reside on the outlandish side of the fence. El Cohiba Grande has a pretty salty overview of the last week of practice and what to look forward to as we head down the stretch to opening day. While your 401k’s may be languishing, the outlook is bright for the 2015 Longhorns as we go inside the Humidor.

We do have some solid intel about the goings on between the lines, however, and the Cigar chimes in on some things to look for as we head to the opening game of the 2016 season. Finally, we’ll discuss the Cigar’s takes on the opening few days of practice with thoughts on the coaches and lads alike as we go down the rabbit hole inside the Humidor.
