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.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ve got a mixed bag of football, Charlie Strong, and politics. There are questions abound about conference affiliation, conference championships and what the Big 12 is prepared to do to ensure its teams are properly represented in the new playoff system.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we try to recover after the Turkey Day debacle. Our source talks about a team who was sky hih prior to the ball game, shaken but not defeated at halftime, and then ripped to shreds in the post-game locker room. In a politically correct world, you’d say there was plenty of blame to go around, but quite frankly according to our source, there wasn’t.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar, for a week with no game, it’s going to be all about the football and some things the players/coaches are saying and doing leading up the big game on Thanksgiving.
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.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll start by talking about what could turn out to be the most important game for the University of Texas in the last four years if you don’t count the Baylor game last season.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll start things out where in the most appropriate place for a football Halloween weekend — Lubbock, Texas. What’s funnier than Big Cigars trying to dodge tortilla sorties? We can’t think of much.
Is there a lede for an article that can truly capture a reader’s attention after a debacle like Saturday? I mean, unless you’re some sort of sadist, of course. 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 Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ve got some pretty good stuff leading up to the game that we had to sit on for strategic purposes.
