A REAL look at how the BCS rankings are devised (from last year, but thought i'd bump it) lol

Sexy Dexy poised to break out

I would have said his Junior season was the breakout season, but heck I'll be happy if he takes his game to another level this year. "During his few years in Austin, Dexter Pittman has lost a lot of weight but gained a lot of game. Pittman enrolled at Texas out of shape and overweight. Pittman obviously didn't play much. But before last season, he took the initiative to lose weight and improve his conditioning. Pittman's minutes increased, and he flourished in the Longhorns' frontcourt. The senior forward only played 16 minutes per game as a junior, but a further increase this year, combined with an improvement in his game, means his scoring average of 10 points per game will increase dramatically as well."

Honestly, how many times can you "inadvertently" break the same rules? When is the hammer going to come down on these clowns?

PL Lindley Profile

Stony Point linebacker PL Lindley raised his stock considerably with an excellent summer and looks to ride that momentum to a break-out junior season.

ESPN recap above. Great to see Quan do so well! Hopefully he gets some meaningful snaps at WR this season too.

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!"

21

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?
