Does the Barnes Raise Raise YOUR Eyebrows?

I am a big fan of Rick Barnes.  I am a big fan of his ability to bring Texas from a mediocre basketball program under Tom Penders to a perennial college basketball contender that recruits McDonald's All-Americans.  Texas, under the Barnes regime has put out a good to great product on an annual basis and has advanced to the NCAA Tournament for 12 consecutive seasons. Top that off with 12 consecutive 20-win seasons and an overall winning percentage .725 (in and out of conference) and you have a damn good program.
 
 
 
With that being said the Texas teams have not performed as expected, come tournament time.  The Longhorns reached the Elite 8 in the 2007-2008 season and since then have been ousted in the first or second rounds.  Sure, I am a realist and understand that it takes both luck and skill to advance in the tournament and also think it is an amazing achievement to reach the tourney 12 straight years, but a raise now just doesn't seem to be right.  The state's public eduction budget is in severe crisis and it doesn't look like our Governor is going to use the 9 billion in Rainy Day funds to assist with the budget shortfall.
 
 
 
I guess what I am saying is that sure, Barnes is GREAT AND the Texas Athletic Program continues to make money every year - but the state budget is in terrible shape and it sends a bad message to live like a king when the state is living like a pauper.  Make the Sweet 16 next year and give him his raise then....

Younger McCoy in the Mix... QB Race Heats Up

With Garrett Gilbert's mediocre play at the QB position last year expect the storyline from here to the season opener to be exciting... Maybe even racy.... No pun intended.... From the rumbings on the Forty Acres Chase McCoy, brother of former standout Longhorn QB Colt McCoy, has made spring ball interesting. McCoy connecting with Patrick McNamara on an 11 yard touchdown pass in the spring game (immediately after a Gilbert turnover) seemed to ignite a debate over who will fall under center in September. With all this being said, Gilbert is still the more experienced guy. Taking over for an injured Colt McCoy against Alabama in the 2009 National Championship game and then being the #1 guy last season, the job is more than likely still Garrett's to lose.
 
 
 
No matter which player is named the starter, the offense should have a revamped look with Harsin and Applewhite as Co-Offensive Coordinators. Young guns they are, but they will definitely keep it real.  With a name like McCoy the possibilities are certainly endless, but for now we can sit back and root for all of the guys wearing burnt orange to make us proud next season. Bring on the AIR ASSAULT!

Is Texas Headed for a Showdown with KU?

The Longhorns took the court tonight in the quarterfinals of the Big XII tournament in Kansas City and looked like a team on a mission.  Taking a 23 point lead into halftime, Texas came out in the second half and never let the Sooners get any closer than 13 points.  The defense looked great and the team shooting percentage was around 50% from the field.



The 'Horns get the winner of the Texas A&M/Mizzouri game in tomorrow's semifinal matchup at 8:30 p.m.  Texas has beaten Texas A&M twice this season and Mizzou once in Austin midway through the season.  Everything points to a showdown in the championship game with Big XII North powerhouse Kansas, whom the Longhorns beat by 11 points in Lawrence back in January. 



Hold on the your hats....  It's gonna be a wild ride.
