  1. Gabe, from what I understand, Austin has a top notch spinal surgeon, if that is required, but don’t do anything until you are comfortable. It is your body and your career. There is also Dr. Andrews in Birmingham. (Think that’s his name). You should talk to Peyton Manning. Not the same injury, but he talked to a lot of people & saved his career. Chip Brown is generally a drama queen, and plays loosely with the truth. UT did the right thing. It’s better to give up a few months of football than a lifetime of walking, or even perhaps, breathing on your own. Don’t give up on your dreams, just remember, patience is a virtue, particularly at times like this. Hook ‘em! java
  2. P. T. Isn’t a big deal as far as durability. It happens to many, many athletes, but when you have access to the kind of medical care our guys do, why deal with it. Just fix it, and move on. It’s not like Sterns wasn’t already performing beyond his 6 months in the program last fall and watching hours of film whenever he had the chance. There is no need to rush these guys back.
  3. ...Texas is now 3-1, as Galindo blathers on and on. I forget, whose side is he on? He was actually calling for a review when they called a Longhorn safe earlier, and now he’s bragging on Rice players. Seriously, I never want people to lose their jobs, but with Lowell I’m on the edge. Maybe a demotion?
  4. Now, now, be a team player. The big boys up front are important, but it is a T. E. A. M. game!
  5. I hate that for Floyd. He is one of my preseason favorite players. A big thank you to the Texas A Department for sparing no expense in screening our atheletes for injury prevention. If this is the same congenital I am somewhat familiar with, it is a narrowing of the bone structure surrounding the spine cord. Is that correct? i don’t know what treatment/treatments are available, but surely something is that will yield positive results for his future as a Longhorn. Carpe Diem, Gabe! Hook ‘em!!!
  6. So sorry for the late reply. I haven’t been online at all this week, except working. I am doing great. Been very blessed. I saw my doctor in February and he was all smiles with test results. This month it has been 3 years since my last radiation treatment. Thank you for asking.
  7. What’s bad is tuning in to see Texas baseball at 3:05 and see Baylor sports. No, thanks, Baylor!
  8. Y’all need to look at that game a different way. The grit this team demonstrated by staying with it, being patient, and winning in the 12th is valuable. Do you recall the 2002 National Championship Tesm. They fell into the losers bracket at Big 12 tourney. Fought and clawed out of it, and won thewhole thing. This team has that grit, now let’s see if we can find a true close and great middle relief If Pierce isn’t using a Sports Psychologist with the pitchers, I think he should try it. Hook ‘em!
  9. I love baseball. Rushed home from work. Took care of my pup, and fixed dinner to sit down and watch the Horns. Then, in the 8th, when we were down by 1, I made a terrible mistake...I decided to lay down on the couch. Never made it through the 8th. I hate that, there is a good reason, but don’t like it. I have to get up between 4 and 4:30 M-F, and usually don’t get to bed until 10 or 10:30. We teach a long day, 7:45-3:45. When I was hired I was to teach Algebra II, both pre-AP and level. The day before school started two years ago, I found out that I was going to teach the course that attracts the most disinterested kids, those with the most behavioral problems, some really good kids, and some kids who struggle. Basically, no math teacher wants it, and I was the only new hire with the experience to control them, but they are exhausting! I won’t teach it next year. Someone else can. Everyone that makes the decision is onboard with that. Thank you, Lord. Hook ‘em!
