Great article about Rick Barnes on USA Today

1

Lots of insight on recruiting as well. Heavy AAU influence in Texas and Barnes' insistence on maintaining a clean program seems to be a major reason why we haven't had much success recruiting locally (and psst.. why Baylor is inexplicably getting these talented players) UT admitted not recruiting Forte from OSU was a mistake -- especially considering it could've helped us get Marcus Smart.

Former USC QB Max Wittek is reportedly considering Ohio State and Louisville as possible transfer destinations, in addition to Texas

1

Wittek is on track to graduate from USC this spring, which would make him eligible to play for another team in 2014. He has two years of eligibility remaining. With the continued development of Braxton Miller, Wittek will probably not get playing time at Ohio State. For that reason, Louisville (which will lose Teddy Bridgewater to the NFL) and Texas are his two most likely destinations.

"Secondly, I want to thank (Texas) coach Mack Brown for giving me a scholarship and the opportunity for me to pursue my dream of playing college football." Seems like a nice kid. Best of luck in the non-football world!

Alabama hired Bo Davis

Seriously... You can't make this stuff up. I wonder if we actually had a deal with Alabama for a trade, and laundering Bo Davis through USC was just a bonus?

Coaching search, Alamo Bowl preview with Blatant Homerism

+

I had a chance to catch up with Blatant Homerism's Allen Kenney on Thursday night to talk about Mack Brown's resignation, the ongoing Texas coaching search, and preview the Alamo Bowl against Oregon.

"I don't want this to be the best thing that's ever happened in your life"

Probably my favorite Mack Brown moment. Literally minutes after winning the greatest college football game of all time, how many coaches would take a step back like this? Pretty incredible, if you ask me. I'm sure many of you have seen this many times, but it's worth another look.
