Limas Sweed is telling the media that he'll play Saturday against Arkansas State. I honestly don't care too much one way or the other whether he plays Saturday. What I do care about - deeply - is that Limas is at 100% for the rest of the season. Losing Billy Pittman stings a little, but is a manageable loss. Losing Limas Sweed for any of Texas big games, however, could be crippling. Even if Limas does play this week, I hope it's sparingly. Stay healthy, big fella.
Getting to the games early during the fall is always a good idea, but especially so this year. With the North End Zone still under heavy construction, UT Athletics Director Deloss Dodds says, "Everybody is going to be impacted by the change." With rain pushing this project behind schedule all summer long, I'd expect there to be some major inconveniences Saturday. Plan ahead.
