In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar the Kool Aid is flowing especially vis a vis our biggest in state rivals—the Texas A&M Aggies. Perception from recruits and insiders in the great state have not only tilted to the Longhorns in recent weeks, but it has prompted the future powers-that-be to talk about facility enhancement and stadium expansion now that the worm seems to be turning. As we reported in recent weeks, some of the big money guys needed evidence that this Texas program was on a positive trend line before going all-in.

After racking my brain for the better of the 12-hour jaunt from Houston to El Paso, I’ve concluded that there isn’t a lede or an article for that matter that is going to satisfy or assuage the majority of our readership or provide any kind of comfort to those who don’t have an agenda for this Texas staff.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’re going to get into the inner working of Texas’ win over a good ISU squad. If the state of United States politics start in Iowa, it’s interesting that Charlie Strong’s regime made his first stand against a team from the Hawkeye State.

In this edition of the Humidor we’re going to do our very best to avoid the histrionics that come after a loss at the University of Texas—especially against the Baptists.
