Horns_bullet_medium114 days.


Horns_bullet_mediumMark your calendar. The countdown begins for the 2010 college football preview magazines. The bible for everything Longhorn football, The Eyes of Texas, hits the newsstands in July. You can order it in advance. Go ahead. You know you want to. (Shameless plug)

 

Horns_bullet_medium  Just 114 days away. The Horns opening game against Rice on Sept. 4 will be on ESPN. The Texas-UCLA game will be on ABC.

 

Horns_bullet_medium Is it too early to talk bowling?

New quarterback, questions at receiver and running back won’t be enough to put Texas in a down year. Chances for a 10th consecutive 10-win season in Austin are good with a great defense returning and loads of potential on offense.

 

Horns_bullet_medium  Mack Brown has a .826 winning percentage at Texas.

Brown has a national title, had a good shot at another (but Lady Luck is a cruel bitch), and he has two Big 12 Titles. I won’t even try to address qualitative improvements, what he has meant to the school financially, the incredibly kind gestures he goes out of his way to make for people who can’t benefit him in any way, or that he runs a clean program. The guy is a class act.

I’ll simply say: thank you.

And we all say thank you, as well.

 

Horns_bullet_medium  As long as the Horns stay, life is good in the Big 12.

 

Horns_bullet_mediumExpansion, mega-conferences, whatever...All the news that isn't always reliable or necessarily fit to print, but here it is. Read at your own peril.

 

Horns_bullet_medium  And about that expected NCAA report on USC? Yes, that's what we thought.
