Bill Little commentary on Noble Doss.
In the fall of 1939, Noble's first year on the Texas varsity, the Longhorns took a train to Madison, Wis., to play the Badgers. The train stopped in Kansas City, and the team got off and practiced, and then headed on north.
Now, just three months shy of what would have been his 89th birthday, the train ride has come to an end for Noble Doss.
Nice tribute to Noble here.
Longhorns Gameday reports Nolan's Father hires former Longhorn.
Minnesota Head Coach Tim Brewster hires ex-Longhorn Richard Hightower as receivers coach.
Hightower was a walk-on who eventually earned a scholarship at the University of Texas from 1999-2002, while Brewster was an assistant coach there. Hightower played defensive back, wide receiver and on special teams for the Longhorns, appearing in 33 games.
“He’s a tremendous character guy, a work ethic guy,” Brewster said. “He has a tremendous personality. He’s going to be an outstanding coach and recruiter.”
Quarterback prospect Nick Montana — second son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana — showed up as planned Monday and Tuesday for an unofficial visit of Ohio State with his mother. Those familiar with the situation said his father apparently is not allowed to fly at the moment as he recovers from some sort of recent back surgery.
They left Tuesday afternoon with a next next stop of Austin, Texas, where they planned to tour the Texas campus and facilities in a similar way. By the way, Nick Montana isn’t skipping school; Oaks Christian is off this week.
The DFW Star-Telegram weighs in on Leach's Contract Talks.
For all his quirks and pirate stories, Mike Leach knows how to coach. He has been coaching at Tech for nine seasons, and the Red Raiders have been to nine bowl games.
For that, word has leaked out that Tech may be co
nsidering firing Leach when the school's Board of Regents meet Friday to discuss his future. If that happens, it won't take long for Baylor to pass Tech in the Big 12 South standings.
Sam Bradford gets more hardware.

Kirk Bohls keepin' it real.
With the college basketball regular season winding down — is it winding down or unraveling? — it's time to start recognizing those who have made the Big 12 what it is: Oklahoma's doormat.
