Bevo's Daily Roundup - April 23, 2009


An oldie, but well worth seeing again.

Roy Miller and Henry Melton have put on a little weight, while impressing NFL scouts during workouts.

Miller, a defensive tackle, has eaten his way up the draft board. Literally. By ingesting 4,800 calories per day, Miller has gained 23 pounds — without a drop-off in speed — since earning defensive MVP honors in the Longhorns’ 24-21 Fiesta Bowl victory over Ohio State.

Since finishing the 2008 season with 29 tackles (10 for losses) and four sacks, Melton dropped six pounds to showcase his quickness. During his pro day workout, Melton ran a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash, posted a 34-inch vertical leap and did 23 repetitions on the bench press at 225 pounds.

Oklahoma Offensive tackle Donald Stephenson turned himself in to the police after a municipal warrant was issued for failure to pay an excessive speeding citation.

Ouch. From Chris Ferrell's Pop Quiz, San Antonio Express-News:

A 117-108 score in the Texas A&M football team’s spring game:

A) Was the result of a scoring system developed by coach Mike Sherman to reward "explosive plays"

B) Caused many football fans around the nation to scratch their heads upon seeing the final tally

C) Really didn’t come as a shock to Aggies fans who watched their team play defense last season

The Dallas Morning News has a Q&A with legendary Baylor coach Grant Teaff.

What's your opinion of the progress that Art Briles has made at Baylor?

I give Coach Briles extremely high marks in every area. To me, he has brought back the spirit and attitude and mental toughness that it takes to compete on any level. He's a very good football coach, and the fact he likes to run the football endears him to me. [Laughs]. Everybody feels good about what he's done in the first year.


And yes, this is it. The off-season is awful. Only 134 days until the first game.
