In this abbreviated version of Monday’s in the Humidor we’ll deal in football hypotheticals with El Cohiba Grande based on where he thinks the staff is coming from out of Spring ball. We’ll also talk a little bit about the Jai Lucas hire and how important it was to lock up the young coach for recruiting purposes. It’s May, so we’re once again in limbo, inside the Humidor.

In this edition of Mondays with El Cohiba Grande we’re all about post-Spring depth charts and what it means as we head into Summer ball and beyond. The Big Cigar has provided us with a look at three- and four-deep on both sides of the ball so there’s something for everyone to chew on as we head inside the Humidor.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’re going to attempt to put a bow on the second season that is Texas Spring football. The Cigar has taken the straw poll and we’ve got the low down on what the coaches think about the Orange-White scrimmage and the spring practice sessions in general. Our source also has some tidbits on why things may be different this go ‘round in the Charlie Strong regime.

In this version of Mondays in the Humidor we’re going to go into a little more scrimmage detail after some assessments from the coaches. Our Cigars go full Rollie Massimino and give us the coaches’ takes from a position-by-position standpoint about last Saturday’s scrimmage.

In this mini version of the Humidor we have some of the coaches’ thoughts on how things are going this spring and especially how last Saturday’s scrimmage graded out at a high level. We’ll also discuss the staff’s macro thoughts on where this train is headed as we get closer to the 2016 and how they’re strategizing things for this squad. Since we spent some of our powder on the weekend’s scrimmage and on tomorrow and Thursday’s practice reports, we’ll keep things brief inside the Humidor hit you with a couple of other articles this week to make up for it.

In this post-Spring Break edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’re going to continue with the abbreviated format because there’s still a bit of a vacuum when it comes to information. We have some position by position intel and we’ll get into a little bit of workout information from today because spring practices start up again tomorrow. (Speaking of which, we should have a practice report tomorrow as they’ve tweaked the practice schedule to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays).

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’re going with a bit of an abbreviated version. Last week we hit you with the offensive depth chart and this week we’ll complete the cycle by giving you the defensive depth chart from staff sources. We’ve also got some injury news and we’ll put a bow on it with a basketball cigar’s take on the win versus the Sooners. It was Smart, pardon the pun, but that’s how we roll inside the Humidor.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ve got more depth chart news that you won’t want to miss. In other news, there’s not much on the workout front as the coaches gave the kids a bit of a respite this last week. Finally, the Cigar talks “a little” about the subpoena issued this weekend regarding Coach Strong. We’ll tell you as much as we possibly can as per usual inside the Humidor.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’re going to change the format up a bit considering the only real information comes from the team and current winter workouts. We’ll talk about lifts and running and what-not but the real treat is the current depth chart which the kids are acutely aware of. We’ve got a coaching nugget and also hope to have a projected August depth chart by folks that know, but as of this writing, that information is not forthcoming

Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar – Q&A

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ll take reader questions for the Big Cigar as we get into the meat of winter workouts. We received a lot of great questions but with so many submissions, we could only answer a portion of the questions. If your question didn’t get answered, in the vast majority of the cases it wasn’t because we don’t like you, it’s just because there was no real good answer at the time or there simply wasn’t enough room, inside the Humidor.
