In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor the Big Cigar we will look at several factors that come into play for the 2016 version of the Texas Longhorns and indirectly Charlie Strong’s tenure. El Cohiba Grande has ground level intel about how the big recruiting weekend went, which should speak well of the program going forward. The Cigar also gets into team workouts which have begun in earnest earlier this week.

I know some of the questions in the Humidor Q&A involved position coaching changes so luckily I was able to circle back with the Big Cigar this morning and get some news on that. It may not be what most want to hear but I think it further illustrates the dysfunction with this program and the direction it wants to go.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor the Big Cigar the information is pretty evenly split between recruiting information and winds blowing in the athletic department. The Cigar discusses the likelihood of closing with a strong class on one hand, but cautions against optimism at the team level because of rumors of unrest should the Strong regime stumble out of the blocks in 2016.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor the Big Cigar we’ll come at you with some team news as we head into perhaps the most important winter/spring practices of the Charlie Strong tenure. We’ll also get the Cigar’s take on what to expect out of the squad and specifically Sterlin Gilbert as we head into vital 2016 preparations. In this abbreviated version of the Humidor, we will also try to give our take about what goes down in 2016 and beyond, inside the Humidor.

In a sentence, that’s how we feel about this Texas program from top to bottom and last week was one fiasco too many as the Texas brass and to an extent Charlie Strong pulled up in their clown car, collectively honked their bright red noses, and proceeded to nearly make Tulsa University look like a destination job.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor the Big Cigar has some good news and bad news for everyone depending on who’s coach/ox is being gored.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor, El Cohiba Grande has the goods on what’s going down on the 40 acres after a frustrating loss on the road in Morgantown. The more things change, the more they remain the same as the young Texas Longhorns found a new way to lose a game–one in which they perhaps dominated on the stat sheet.
