Coming Soon: The Eyes of Texas 2008

Though the project is keeping me from doing much writing for this site, I'm damn pleased with the way this year's football annual is coming together. And if there's not a hell of a lot of news with Texas sports these days, the least I can do is provide an update on what to expect in this year's publication:
