In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar, the roller coaster ride seems to have become more of a steady ascent for Charlie Strong especially considering the schedule begins to soften up. El Cohiba Grande will discuss the happenings from last Saturday’s big win, and what has changed on the macro level to help the Horns recover from what seemed like death blow against TCU.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’re coming off the bye week and a big win vs. Idle it would seem. Any time the Aggies lose and the Horns don’t is typically a good weekend for the college football universe and it sounds like the lads took advantage of the week off and much needed rest as they try to build on the momentum created by vanquishing the Oklahoma Sooners.

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.
