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.

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.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ve got a special treat from behind enemy lines. We’ll get an Oklahoma Cigar’s take on the hiring of Coach Jay Norvell, what it means for Texas potentially, and what Texas fans can expect after poaching the Sooners’ wide receiver coach.

In light of the lack of news, this is going to be a somewhat abbreviated edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar. Our sources talk about a variety of topics from Jerrod Heard and the quarterback position overall to the assistant coaching search to replace Coach Chambers and Koenning. We’ll also hit on some topics having to do with the recruiting trail.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’re going to yen and yang this thing with a little bit of bad news short term and would-could be some good news going forward. Hint, as things currently stand, Texas has personnel issues.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we have very little good news to report—unless you consider the end of this season being good news. We do have a full a report on what’s going on internally with this Texas football team. In a year that was mainly focused on purging the chaff from Mack Brown’s program, those who are optimists would say the season was a great success considering this team made a bowl game.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll be focusing on the bowl workouts and how the team is looking heading into the December 29th showdown with current SEC member and former SWC rival Arkansas. We’ll also talk about the bb’s slowly but surely getting back in the proverbial box. For those that don’t get the reference, it was Darrell Royal’s analogy about the fractured Texas fan-base. There’s certainly good news here mainly because recruiting has turned on a dime and the trajectory of the program has gone from gradual improvement to potentially meteoric if Malik Jefferson brings who we think he’ll bring to the 40 Acres.

In this edition of the Humidor we’re slaves to our readership and their cut to the chase questions. Yes, we ask the questions that you want to know, and in turn the Cigar regales of the dysfunction in and around the athletic department. The good news is that like most things, dysfunction is in the eyes of the beholder.
