    Aaron Carrara got a reaction from J.B. TexasEx for a blog entry, Texas ranked #25 in USA Today Preseason Poll   
    The USA Today Sports Preseason college football rankings were released today and the Texas Longhorns check-in at #25. After finishing last season with a 6-7 record which included an embarrassing 31-7 loss to Arkansas in the Texas Bowl, the Longhorns looks to take advantage of an up-tempo offense in 2015 behind quarterbacks Tyrone Swoopes and Jerrod Heard.
     
    The Longhorns found themselves ranked at #24 in the Amway Preseason Coaches poll last season but dropped out in week 3 of the poll's release after a 41-7 loss to BYU in Austin.
     
    The Big 12 has four teams in the poll's Top 25 including #2 Baylor, #6 TCU, #15 Oklahoma and #25 Texas.
     
    Texas will face #21 Notre Dame in the season opener for both teams on September 5th in South Bend, Indiana.

    Aaron Carrara got a reaction from bcherry168 for a blog entry, Ronnie Major close to joining the team?   
    Huntsville offensive tackle Ronnie Major signed his National Letter of Intent with the Longhorns in February but didn't make the move to Austin last month. Major released news via twitter on Friday night indicating questions surrounding his academic eligibility might soon come to an end.
     
     
    HornSports has stayed in communication with Major's high school coach, Rodney Southern, who has consistently maintained that Ronnie would qualify and enroll at Texas.
     
    In addition to Major the Longhorns are currently without two other signees, tight end Devonaire Clarington and wide receiver Gilbert Johnson. Defensive tackle Du'Vonta Lampkin who was also part of the 2015 signing class will not enroll at Texas.

    Aaron Carrara got a reaction from J.B. TexasEx for a blog entry, 'Horns & Huskies Hoops will open in China   
    Story via University of Texas Athletics
    SAN FRANCISCO — The 2015-16 season opener for The University of Texas Men's Basketball team against the University of Washington will be played Nov. 14 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai at 11 a.m. local Shanghai time, the Pac-12 Conference announced Wednesday morning. ESPN will broadcast the inaugural Pac-12 China Game live in the United States on Nov. 13 at 9 p.m. Central."Opening the 2015-2016 season against the Washington Huskies in Shanghai, China allows Texas Athletics to provide an unparalleled educational experience for our students, builds upon the international reach of the Longhorns brand and presents a tremendous opportunity to develop academic and other broad-based relationships for the entire University of Texas," University of Texas Men's Athletics Director Steve Patterson said.
    The Pac-12 and Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA), the world's largest online and mobile commerce company, also announced a partnership to support the upcoming historic Pac-12 China Game. The game and two-year partnership with Alibaba Group represent a major first for sports in China. Alibaba Group is the unrivaled leader in mobile in China, and the game will be distributed live via Alibaba's mobile and digital distribution platforms.
    With this game, the Pac-12 will become the first U.S. sports league, collegiate or professional, to host a regular season contest in China. The partnership with Alibaba Group will continue into the 2016-17 academic year and support a second regular season Pac-12 China Game between schools to be announced at a later date.
    "This partnership is about so much more than a basketball game," said Jim Wilkinson, Alibaba Group's Senior Vice President. "As these student-athletes complete their education and enter the global economy, China/US relations will be central to the future of the world in which they live. We truly believe that this trip will provide these student-athletes with a once in a lifetime chance to learn about China, to make new friends, and to hopefully impact their futures in a positive way."
    In addition to being the presenting sponsor, Alibaba Group is also developing an academic program for the visiting student-athletes. While the game will be played in Shanghai, during their visit to China both teams will travel from Shanghai to Hangzhou, China for an educational program there.
    Longtime Pac-12 partner Federation of University Sports of China (FUSC), which operates under China's Ministry of Education, will serve as the co-host of the game. The FUSC is China's national solely-authorized organization for university sports. Since 2011, the Pac-12 and FUSC have worked together to put on exhibition games featuring Pac-12 men's and women's basketball teams, as well as coaching clinics and educational symposiums on collegiate sports.

    Aaron Carrara reacted to Matt Cotcher for a blog entry, Tapping the brakes   
    The Longhorns wrapped up the first week of Fall camp on Friday by competing in full pads for the first time since starting practices. If you ask players about the first week of camp, you'll get a wide range of adjectives from physical to fun.
     
    On the other hand, if you ask Charlie Strong or the assistant coaches, there is much more unity in their answers. The entire coaching staff met with media on Friday and even though the answers were slightly different, they all shared the same intent.
     
    Such a coordinated message is typically reserved for election politics and savvy campaign managers. That wasn't the case on Friday though. The Texas coaches all basically said the same thing, but it's because they believe it.
     
    I'll spell it out clearly - all the practice notes are fun to read, but the coaches aren't focused on who is making plays. Depth charts are good discussion topics for fans, but the coaches aren't concerned with them yet.
     
    Week 1 was about fundamentals - blocking, tackling, running. Before worrying about which freshman wideout looks best after the catch, the coaches spent a week making sure they understood which routes to run in specific situations.
     
    But don't mistake those quotes as the coaches thinking this team lacks talent or playmakers. There is a method being followed - fundamentals first.
     
    And, rest assured, these coaches know they have a talented team. When asked whether the team is on pace for where he thought they'd be at this point in camp, Strong replied, "we're probably just where we need to be right now. You just know this, you always want to improve. You've still got to get better."

    Aaron Carrara got a reaction from monarch for a blog entry, Lyon competes for deep snapper spot at Navarro   
    National Signing Day was in early February and most high school senior athletes made decisions on where they would play college football on that day, faxing in their Letters of Intent to the respective coaching staffs.
     
    Not so with one such athlete, Brandon Lyon, a 6-1, 250 lb OG/deep snapper from Lewisville and son of Mark Lyon. Poised to accept an offer from McMurry University as NSD loomed, the board of regents at McMurry held a meeting the Friday before NSD. During that meeting, the board decided that McMurry would cease pursing Div. II NCAA status and instead would drop back to Div. III. This meant that McMurry would no longer be offering athletic scholarships in any sport.
     
    Not a good situation to be left with when NSD is only a few days away.
     
    "We really didn't see that coming," Brandon explained. "It was disappointing for me, but I understand why they did it. They have to keep within their means. But I was really looking forward to going there."
     
    Brandon was named All-District in District 5-5A as an Offensive Guard. He was a two-year starter for the Lewisville Farmers under head coach Gregg Miller and held the deep snapping duties for punts, field goals and extra points. The ability to deep snap, plus the ability to play several positions along the OL drew the attention of several schools. He was invited and visited McMurry last spring.
     
    Lewisville competed in brutal District 5-5A with perennial powers Coppell, Hebron, Flower Mound Marcus and Denton Ryan. Brandon faced off against 2014 star DE Solomon Thomas and also Ennis 2015 DE James Lockhart.
     
    Navarro College in Corsicana had been in contact Brandon since late November. In December, Navarro Head Coach Brian Mayper paid Brandon a visit at Lewisville High.
     
    Earlier this year Brandon was hosted by coach Brian Mayper at Navarro and was given a tour of the campus and spent time showing Brandon how he would be used at Navarro.
     
    "I had a great time, everyone was very nice and I was impressed with all the trophies and championships they had," Brandon said. "Coach Mayper has stayed in touch with me. I don't think he knew what happened with McMurry but he took the time to check on me weeks after signing day, so that means a lot. He had kept me in mind."
     
    The rest, as they say, is history. Brandon signed with Navarro and reported to camp with the Navarro Bulldogs on Tuesday, August 5th.
     
     
    I had an opportunity to talk with Brandon on Tuesday, just before he headed into his first team meeting as a member of the Bulldog football team and asked him how his first day at Navarro went.
     
    "It went really well. We need a really good snapper here (at Navarro)” said Brandon. “I am not the only one competing for the starting job, so I know I need to remain focused. I just have to keep working and grinding.”
     
    Navarro Head Coach Brian Mayper took a few minutes to talk to me about Brandon and the deep snapper position, which is a position in need for Mayper, after all-conference deep snapper Brent Nicholson transferred to Lamar.
     
    “I saw Brandon this spring and he was snapping the ball well. Our deep snapper snapped for us for two years and went to Lamar. We have Brandon and two others vying for the snapper spot, which is wide-open at this point. Because we are a Junior College we expect freshmen to step-up, which is exactly what these kids are doing” said Mayper.
     
    The Bulldogs went 9-3 last season with a win over Hinds in the Brazos Valley Bowl. They open the season on August 23 against Georgia Military.
     
    Best of luck to Brandon, Coach Mayper and the Bulldog football team.

    Aaron Carrara got a reaction from J.B. TexasEx for a blog entry, Player dismissals continue

    Texas head coach Charlie Strong announced on Thursday that he suspended wide receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander after the two were charged with sexual assault. Later that day Strong informed two more Longhorn football players that they were dismissed from the team.
     
    According to multiple reports, Thursday night's dismissals were: sophmore running back Jalen Overstreet and freshman safety Chevoski Collins. Both players were shown the door for "violating team rules" according to reports. Overstreet appeared in 9 games last season for the Longhorns while Collins redshirted. Both players were recruited by Texas as 3-star athletes.
     
    Dismissals did not stop with Overstreet and Collins. Running back Joe Bergeron has also joined the growing list of players being told they are no longer part of the team. Bergeron’s dismissal was somewhat of a surprise, especially after Charlie Strong’s comments about the senior at Big 12 Media Days:
     
    Bergeron was expected to play a key role in the Texas backfield, providing support for a running back corps which includes senior Malcolm Brown and junior Johnathan Gray. Brown missed time during his freshman and sophomore seasons due to injury and Johnathan Gray missed the majority of the last season with an Achilles injury.
     
    Bergeron was dismissed from Spring practices and has a history of disciplinary actions since coming to campus. The loss of Bergeron could give true freshman tailback Duke Catalon (Eisenhower HS, Houston) the opportunity to play in the upcoming season.
     
    Bergeron wasn’t the only senior to be dismissed on Friday. Multiple reports indicate safety Josh Turner as also being released for "violating team rules." Turner played on special teams and defense in 38 games with the Longhorns, starting 5 games.
     
    Linebacker Kendall Thompson is also no longer with the team. Although reports are that Thompson is discontinuing his playing career after a history of concussions.
     
    At Big 12 Media Days earlier this week in Dallas, Charlie Strong was asked a question about the primary motivating factors he uses and how much is ‘fear’ one of them. Coach Strong responded with:
     
    It is fairly safe to say that there are more than a handful of players on the 40 Acres that disagree with that statement.
     
    * NOTE: The Texas Athletic Department has not yet released an official statement on the dismissals.

It was announced yesterday that sophmore running back Johnathan Gray was fully cleared to participate in fall camp, which left only senior running back Joe Bergeron's status in question.
     
    When asked about Bergeron at Big 12 Media Days in Dallas on Tuesday, Texas head football coach Charlie Strong has this to say:

    Wellman is the fifth 2015 pitcher to commit to Augie Garrido's Longhorns, joining Beau Ridgeway (The Woodlands, TX), Chase Sugart (Bridge City, TX), Nick Kennedy (College Station, TX) and Nolan Kingham (Las Vegas, NV).

    Senior RHP Nathan Thornhill threw 8 innings of shutout baseball as the Texas Longhorns won their 3rd straight in Omaha, beating Vanderbilt 4-0. The win by Texas forces a decisive rematch on Saturday at 7:00 pm against the Commodores, with the winner securing a spot in the College World Series Championship against the winner of the Ole Miss/ Virginia series.
     
    Thornhill scattered 5 hits and struck out five over eight innings. The shutout performance by Thornhill and closer John Curtiss (who pitched the 9th inning) was the 10th all-time by the Longhorns in College World Series play and resulted in back-to-back shutouts for head coach Augie Garrido's team.
     
    Vanderbilt starting pitcher Tyler Ferguson was in trouble early on and lasted only 2/3 of an inning before being replaced by Brian Miller. The Longhorns scored a pair of runs in both the first and second innings and held on to a 4-0 lead for the remainder of the game. C.J. Hinojosa, Brooks Marlow, Mark Payton and Madison Carter had RBI's on the day.
     
    Texas pitching has been stellar in Omaha thus far and the Longhorns hope junior right-hander Parker French can continue the success on Saturday.

    Duke was spectacular in relief, striking out two while allowing no hits and no runs. The Cardinals committed four errors and managed just four hits in the loss.
     
    Texas dinged Louisville starting pitcher Anthony Kidston for six hits and three runs before he was replaced in the 9th inning by Cardinal closer Nick Burdi. Burdi gave up a sacrifice fly to Brooks Marlow in the 9th which scored Madison Carter, adding an insurance run for the Longhorns.
     
    After losing to Vanderbilt on Saturday, today's loss eliminates the Cardinals from the College World Series.
