Even to this day, I consider myself a learner. I'm always trying to learn new things and I feel like there is always going to be room for improvement. And that's been my mentality ever since I got here. I learned from Vince. I learned from Coach [Greg] Davis every day. One of the things I've always tried to do is practice every day like it's a game. And that means mentally, physically, I'm ready to go. I said to Vince, "Talk to me. Tell me what you're seeing. And if I don't understand what you're saying, then I'll go back in the playbook or I'll ask Coach Davis. I just want to know terms and what coverages you're seeing. Just talk to me." I learned so much as Vince went through [watching film]. So I did the same thing with [freshman QB Garrett] Gilbert this summer. I would teach him everything I knew going through film. What's great is when I'm talking through it, I'm also reminding myself while I'm teaching him.

The past presents the future...I love it. From the always fun to read Bruce Feldman.

2009 Slogan: "We Are Texas!"

Saying that the team has moved on from last season's BCS snub, Mack Brown indicated that he chose the slogan, "We Are Texas!" in part to help the team only worry about what they can control -- how they play every week. Brown has certainly done a good thing trying to distance himself and the team from last fall, pointing out during numerous interviews that the Longhorns lost control of their own destiny by losing to Texas Tech, the perception of most Texas fans at this point, I believe. Certainly the perception of this scribe, at least. But, frankly, the slogan is a little bit lame and doesn't even really seem to have a strong connection to the BCS snub. A slogan mentioned here that works much better is "Leave No Doubt," a reference to the need to not only win every game, but to blow out all the lesser teams. Any other suggestions?

There's been some chatter about it in the BDR comments, but here it is in all its glory: Colt McCoy...

There's been some chatter about it in the BDR comments, but here it is in all its glory: Colt McCoy with a mustache. Glory, Glory Hallelujah! To borrow a PBism, Out-standing, sir! See also: Dr. Saturday and EDSBS

Not that there's anything wrong with that

Top 2012 Bball Prospects from Texas

Great classes in 2010 and 2011, is there more to come from home-grown talent in 2012? "The top lead guards in this class both come from the talent-rich state of Texas: No. 7 J-Mychal Reese (Bryan, Texas) and No. 8 L.J. Rose. The two show differing approaches to the position. Reese is an excellent scorer who takes the ball to the basket. He is extremely quick with the ball and can knock down open 3s. Rose, on the other hand, is a pass-first point guard. He has a tremendous feel for the game and makes his teammates better." "Holding strong at the third spot, Isaiah Austin (Mansfield, Texas) is a different type of player than Drummond and Coleman. The top two players in the class are more physically imposing. Austin is more of a versatile and wiry athlete. Austin is still polishing his back-to-the basket skills, so most of his points come on short jumpers and putbacks. Defensively, the 6-11 Austin can dominate the paint as well as any player in the class."

Beasley in Rehab

Yet another reason these guys should be required to stay in college longer. Time to grow up Mr. Beasley... Not to sound too callous, but these 19 and 20-year olds don't get an adequate support system once they're in the NBA. "The spiral appears to have started in earnest Friday, when a photo of the No. 2 pick in the 2008 NBA draft was posted to his Twitter account. In the photo Beasley displayed a new tattoo across his shoulders, and the image also captured what appeared to be a small plastic bag on an adjacent table. The contents of the bag were unclear."

J'Covan Brown Finally Cleared By NCAA ($)

After missing last season because of eligibility issues, former Port Arthur Memorial guard J'Covan Brown will finally suit up for the Longhorns this season and join a crowded backcourt rotation. A combo guard with exceptional scoring ability who is also capable of spending some time at the point guard position, all the reports from the summer pick-up games indicate that Brown will seriously contend for major minutes this season, possibly leaving a player like Justin Mason on the outside looking in. If he can control his fiery tempo and operate within Rick Barnes' system, he may be the player who can put the Longhorns over the top this season and help them return to the Final Four.
