AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas athletic programs once again have their annual set of data to prove the Longhorns are advancing toward their ultimate goal – to graduate all student-athletes. UT surpassed the required NCAA standard in all 20 of its intercollegiate athletics sport programs, according to the mu...

I could write this article solely on the abysmal football performance on Thanksgiving, but that would just dredge up more feelings of disappointment, and I have tried to put behind me this past week. Instead of describing every technical problem I saw on the field, I will instead focus on the largest problem I saw:...

Let me preface this week’s column by telling you that I have a small vendetta against West Virginia. After I was hit in the face with a Mountaineer woman’s purse, I’ve found it difficult to rebuild the burned bridge. I am one to hold a grudge. Imagine my excitement when the Longhorns took the field this week. I was...

“There’s still time.” This sentiment has been preached by the coaching staff, by the players, by the fans, by everyone. And the truth is, we do still have time. Maybe not in the season, but Strong has time. The defensive improvements are noticeable. The team is growing together and having a greater appreciation for...

One thing I am tired of talking about is being disappointed. It seems that I am constantly getting my hopes up and having them dashed. This is not to say that our team can’t perform for the rest of the season, and it is not to say that they have disappointed me fully, but I feel like the little mistakes that cost us...

I would first like to mention that I believe that the Longhorns won the game on Saturday strictly for my birthday. Secondly, we won a very sloppy game. Our defense didn’t look like the powerhouse that we have come to expect. Our offense is improving with every game, but still lacks consistency. Our special teams is...

What an emotional rollercoaster the Longhorns took us on this past weekend. We were up, we were down, we fought so incredibly hard, and ultimately, we fell short. Personally, I thought it was going to be blowout with OU crushing us, and I was not ready to face the hoards of OU fans walking around the fair. I was ple...

I spent last weekend gallivanting around New Orleans with seven Aggies and one fellow Longhorn. I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel a little bit of happiness at their loss, as I’m sure they felt for ours. I am lucky enough to be blessed with Aggie friends who are able to understand the difference between rivalr...

The student body let out a collective sigh of relief on Saturday…finally, a win. A win that our team should be proud of – certainly there were some holes in our play, especially offensively, but the students got a chance to hope. Post-game, the Kansas head coach was fired. Though Charlie Weis finished last season w...

Well, the UCLA game had me in a tizzy. We were brought to the highest level of excitement, and then immediately dropped like moldy bread. The best part about the UCLA game? The fans and students were excited to be at the game. You could feel the energy. I took the game as a sign that we are almost where we need to b...

Unsurprisingly, the students of UT are mortified with the performance at last week’s game. I was not in attendance, being maid of honor and present at my best friend’s engagement party will override football, but grumblings throughout campus are constant. As I’ve previously said, the students are fickle. My generati...

There were three very common questions that I heard from freshman on their way to their first college class: 1. How do I get to (insert any and every UT building)?2. Is this class attendance-based?3. Are you going to the game on Saturday? The students of Texas are nervous. There are so many unknown factors going i...

On Tuesday evening, the University of Texas Board of Regents unanimously voted to name Admiral William McRaven, a University of Texas graduate and Distinguished Alumnus, as the sole finalist to replace Francisco Cigarroa as the chancellor of The University of Texas system. State law, however, requires the regents to...
