Many of you know that I'm spending my year here in Austin doing the AmeriCorps program at a local middle school. No doubt my mother will be -thrilled- to see this headline in today's Austin American-Statesman. I wonder if my office supplies include firearm protection.
The AAS's Cedric Golden with a piece on the Longhorn kickers. This is an area I'm a little nervous about at this point. Not to be underestimated in importance.
SwampBall notes that the Gators' offensive line just took a hit. This is the one thing that keeps me from bumping Florida up into that Top 5 range. Chris Leak is going to take some vicious hits in the SEC this fall.
BevoSports get their day in the sun with the good folks at SBLive. Being on the radio isn't as easy as it sounds. Good work, Matt!
I've answered the first BlogPoll roundtable below. As noted, one of the great things about the BlogPoll is that is encourages dialogue. Well, that's the thing that makes this site a step above so many others - the reader participation in comments and diaries makes this the most lively and informative Longhorn blog around. As always, feel free to jump in with your own thoughts on who's overrated, what matters in rankings, and the like. I learn as much from you guys as you do from me. Keep it up.
Lastly, I'm going to brave the early start time to attend Saturday morning's scrimmage. If folks are interested in organizing a formal BON meet-up to watch together, start the chatter in the comment section and we'll discuss details.
