    I was born and raised in Austin, went to Texas for both undergraduate and grad school, and worked in the athletic office. I'm a Longhorn through and through! I teach high school outside of Dallas, but in my spare time I also cover the Horns for Rant Sports.

  1. Nothing earth-shattering here, but I talked to someone very close to the family. Mama Warren is very, very strict in regards to academics and the people her boys hang out with. Apparently, she let Charlie Strong know, in no uncertain terms, that Chris would NOT receive a "watered-down, athlete's" degree, but he would get a top-notch education, "period." She wants a coach who is in the players' faces about grades, not just talking the talk. Also, she grilled him on the types of players he is recruiting b/c she doesn't want her son to hang out with poor influences. In this family, and I don't mean this negatively, Mama usually gets her way (and it's only b/c she wants the best for her sons). Hearing this makes me truly feel that Warren ends up at Texas. With Stanford out of the picture, I don't know how Mama could like anyone more than Texas and Strong. Just a little FYI...
  2. I really, really hope he finds success.
  3. Does anyone know the release date for this movie? Has it been set?
  4. Nice job Lukus. I couldn't agree more with this quote: "What was more perplexing was the fact that the coaches only chose to run Swoopes two times in the game." While I know Swoopes isn't a great runner, he is a capable runner, and he seems to do better overall, even in the passing game, when he is running the ball more.
  5. Not next year, but soon after. That's the problem with hiring a "legend" that played for you...hard to let go when needed.
  6. Nice Lukus. Hard to disagree with any of those, truthfully. I was proud of the way Swoopes overcame early adversity.
  7. Nice! I am more excited about this year's team than I've been in a long time. Should be a fun season!

    Oh Aggy.

    Come on...they had to pick a game they could possibly win, right?
  9. Nice job Lukus. My only disagreement is also the OL. They're no doubt improving though, which is very encouraging, especially considering the time in which they've made that progress.
  10. I agree that this could be seen as a "trap" which does seem odd considering. I'm hoping instead that we come out on fire. We will see soon! And yes, I agree the crowd won't be nearly as good. Sadly. Though I was pleasantly surprised with them against BU.
  11. Thank you guys. Good point Lukus. I am curious to see if this lit a fire under the guys, because the fanbase seems to be much more hopeful and optimistic.
  12. That settles it for me. If finnebaum says we should've gotten Briles, then I'm glad we got Strong. Wait til Strong gets his defenses ready and let's see what they can do to Baylor.
