An otherwise sleepy part of the sports calendar - otherwise known as "May" - was awakened in startling fashion earlier this week by the folks wearing the robes in the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.
Cautionary tales have been with us since Man first started communicating as tribal hunter gatherers and Ooo-ga The Prideful boasted that he'd show everyone that cave bears are probably just large marmots. A story Eric Nahlin's wife has repeatedly implored me to remind him of every time he announces to the family that he has mastered electricity with the power of his mind and tries to entice it from a power outlet with a paper clip.
AUSTIN — Texas held its Pro Day between practice days on Wednesday, meaning that head coach Tom Herman had an opportunity to watch players he was able to coach for just one season give the physical portion of their job interviews with NFL teams
Texas junior CB Holton Hill has been suspended for the remainder of the 2017 season for a violation of team rules, Texas Head Coach Tom Herman announced Tuesday. Hill will be permitted to continue working out with the Longhorns and remain a member of the team, but will not be permitted to participate in any games.
The grades are in after UT's 38-7 win over Baylor from McLane Stadium on Saturday. The offense is improving and the defense is on the Dean's List. More from our Coach Venable on the Longhorns performance.
The Longhorns dominated a respectable Bear offense and held Baylor to their season lows in points (7) and yardage (249). The defense continues to excel on 3rd and 4th down holding the Bears to 1/9 conversions in the first half and 5/23 total for the game. It's hard to win with a 21.7% conversion rate if you're not hitting big plays.
A short internet search of the term “Holton Hill NFL Draft” yields surprisingly few results. There are a couple of stories from local outlets that provide short summaries of Hill’s stellar play in 2018. One of the first page results has “2019 NFL Draft” in the title, but with the way the junior corner is playing, that may need to be moved up a year.
