Daily Round Up: Remember the Alamo


The Alamo did not end well for Texas.

Remember the Alamo! Or not. [AAS]

That's why when Brown says: "We have so much motivation," he has to be taken at his word. This program cannot suffer through an offseason after a season in which there was no tangible improvement. Much less more coaching changes if the defense significantly adds to its ignominious stature as the worst in program history by allowing more yards to be piled against it.

The program is in too fragile a state right now. One blow in the wrong direction would send it teetering over the edge to a fracture mess. And all of DeLoss Dodds' men would not be able to put it back together again. At least not before 2013. [ESPN]

The scariest name on the list for Big 12ers? Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. He's shown the willingness to listen to opportunities, and with the possibility of the Texas job coming open this time next year, look for him and Gary Patterson to be a the top of the theoretical Longhorns wish list.[ESPN Big 12 Blog]

And another one reads Ubben, has writer's block and decides use this dim-witted idea for his post. [Fansided]

Gundy? Ummmmm.....no.
