    Eff. Any idea who? Is this info coming from behind the paywall?

    We actually moved back to Austin last summer. Good talking to you as well. If you ever want to meet up for a beer and/or a game, drop a line.

    Because I'm a glutton for punishment (and have season tickets) I forced myself to go to the game. Through good times and bad, you gotta support the Horns. Pleasantly surprised with the win tonight. The biggest differences between this game and the last three losses: (1) shots actually went in and (2) Matt Coleman. At least for tonight, Coleman was an assertive floor general, drove the lane, and actually hit some 3's. Here's to hoping this game gives the good guys some confidence. On a more frustrating note, there were a ridiculous number of Purdue fans and they were loud as hell. This felt more like a neutral site game. The lower bowl was asleep for most of the game until Jaxson got them out of their seats with that slam. Finally, looks like Shaka woke up as far as his lineups. Kamaka got more minutes than Dylan, and I'm assuming that trend will continue for the rest of the season (or at least I hope so).

    Very true. When I was in school, I remember having to camp out for games if you wanted a decent seat. LOL, that's definitely not happening anymore. That said, winning cures all. Start winning and they will show up. Unfortunately, based on the rate we're throwing up bricks, not sure that's going to happen anytime soon.

    https://www.hookem.com/2018/08/03/texas-ad-chris-del-conte-creating-longhorn-live-womens-athletics-new-arena/ On a new Texas basketball arena: “We average about 9,000 for a home men’s basketball game. The stadium seats 16,000. It’s just too big. Our game times are at 8 o’clock. Interstate 35 is pretty hard to come back on at 8 o’clock. Television has made it so easy, you get a 60 or 80-inch TV at Ikea where you can never leave your couch. “The Drum has been great for us, the Erwin Center has been great, but I think that was built in ’76. It’s had its time, but we have to do that in a thoughtful manner. And that’s just where we’re at right now.” On building a smaller arena: “Now this is just my mind, no one else’s mind, so let’s just start with that. But there has to be, if you start with a lower bowl that seats say 10,000. You know that upper rake, couldn’t you have a garage door that comes down that’s padded? You never see those seats. “Somehow a garage door comes down right now and you never see my garage. Imagine if it was padded. You’d never open it up. Now, you have a 10,000 seat basketball stadium. You’re playing in the Spurs’ arena, close the gates on the upper rake and then open them up when you have a concert. Why can’t you do that? “No one ever thought you’d go from the 8-track to the cassette to the Discman to an iPod to the phone. … Someone’s going to find that technology at some point and time that works for everybody.”

    Is it? I thought he was guaranteed through 2022-2023 thanks to the extension from Perrin. Here's the original terms: https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/collegesheadlines/2015/05/12/see-the-full-details-of-shaka-smart-s-contract-with-the-texas-longhorns But then Perrin extended him another year: https://texassports.com/news/2016/8/25/university-of-texas-board-of-regents-approve-contract-extension-for-mens-basketball-coach-shaka-smart.aspx Before the new terms of that extension, I think it would have been $9 million. If I'm wrong, please let me know. That would make me feel better. Also, if that's the case, then someone needs to correct BON's reporting: https://www.burntorangenation.com/2018/4/2/17189646/shaka-smart-contract-guaranteed-texas-longhorns-chris-del-conte "After the 2018-19 basketball season, that number will drop to $12.9 million. That’s still a lot of money."

    Shaka isn't going anywhere unless you can find a booster that cares enough about basketball to pay that $12.9 million buyout. If it was football, you'd have boosters lining up. Not going to be the case for basketball.

    You know I'm the ultimate Shaka apologist and I'm in a very dark place after that loss. Not good. Just to give you a true appreciation of the dumpster fire that ensued at the end of the game: 7:09 - Dylan defensive rebound 6:51 - Dylan turnover 6:30 - Dylan defensive rebound 6:13 - Dylan turnover 6:09 - Dylan shooting foul 5:48 - Dylan turnover 4:54 - Dylan misses the front end of a 1-and-1 Dylan gets benched. Gee, I wonder why... From there: Jericho makes a FG, Matt turnover, Courtney turnover, Jaxson turnover, Kerwin brick, Jaxson turnover. That's downright depressing. Finally, Kerwin followed up his 2-12 FG, 1-7 3PT against Radford with a 1-11 FG, 0-3 3PT tonight.

    Watching this presser made me feel so much better about the future. I want our QB to care this much. LOL, also, Tom's love for Sam is clear.

    Just got the confirmation email for tickets, so my wife and I will be heading out there for the game. Anyone else going?

    Great news for the Sugar Bowl.

    No. 17 Texas falls to Radford, 62-59

    The long pause before answering the first question is downright painful.
