Mondays in the Humidor – 5/2/16

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.

Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’re talking summer conditioning all the time pretty much. We’ve got the insight to who’s doing what in the weight room, the track, and in 7-on-7 voluntary passing workouts. The Big Cigar gives the goods on attrition as well which is good news for a team that was encouraging folks to transfer one short season ago. Finally, we have some information on what it means to be DBU to some newcomers that you won’t want to miss. If you think this team is developing a gigantic chip where their shoulder resides, you’d be right. The program Charlie Strong is building may not be the deepest, but it’s certainly not without confidence which is a trait we value, inside the Humidor.

Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar

In this abbreviated edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ve got tidbits from the first day of summer workouts that included some highlights and lowlights. We’ll try to have semi-daily updates from summer workouts if possible. We’ve also got some tidbits about Texas hoops to break things up. It’s June, and things are starting to heat up (Thank goodness) at least on the sports front.

Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar

With official practices ended until August, there isn’t much in the way of hard football news other than some bits and pieces of injury news. Thankfully it’s all good news on that front. We also have our source’s take on Steve Patterson and reports about a significant amount of non-renewals for 2015 season tickets and if there’s any significant concern within the athletic department over what appears to be some apathy setting in with the football program.

Charts of Depth: Defense

Charlie Strong's inaugural Texas campaign undoubtedly proved his wizardry as a defensive mind. He took the same parts that previously comprised a soft and undisciplined defense and made them one of the Big 12's best. Heading into 2015, much of the 2014 defense's key components have been lost to senior attrition, but he was still able to reinforce his reputation in the minds of many during the Spring game, especially when you take into consideration the young, inexperienced, and injured roster.
