Bevo's Daily Roundup - June 9, 2010


Today's Roundup is dedicated to unreliable sources and bad journalism.

Horns_bullet_mediumThis is not our fault.

With rampant speculation about conference realignment comes all sorts of corollary issues, among them a crying need for a scapegoat.

Because there well could be so many winners and losers in this episode of conference merry-go-round, there has to be somebody to blame.

For some, that's Texas.

No, really. It is our fault. And the sports writer who screams f-bombs thinks Texas holds the key to Big 12 survival.


Horns_bullet_medium  Priorities. Meanwhile, the only paper writing about UT's great baseball season is the Austin Chronicle.


Horns_bullet_mediumBob is excited

Football's Bob Stoops is excited.

"It's kind of exciting to me, what the possibilities are for our program," Stoops said. "What actually it will be, I don't know. In the end, it'll be positive."


Horns_bullet_medium  Richard Justice likes Baylor.

Please don't throw Baylor University overboard. Please, please, please. Baylor deserves better.

Baylor has come too far and has too much to offer. Baylor deserves to be rewarded, not punished.

In some ways, Baylor is a bright and shining light for what college sports ought to be about. If you're rolling your eyes, you haven't been paying attention. Baylor today isn't Baylor of yesterday.

Baylor has first-rate facilities and academics. Baylor has competitive teams, too. OK, other than in football.


Horns_bullet_mediumFox Sports has a Q&A with Kansas State coach Bill Snyder.


Horns_bullet_mediumLobbyists are lower than...lawyers?

Readers, meet Buddy Jones.

Buddy is a former politician and a current lobbyist. That means Buddy has actually worked in two professions that fall below journalists and lawyers on the public esteem totem pole. As one of the former and a friend of the latter, I can assure you such a feat is not easy. You have to work to have that many people dislike you.

But Buddy isn`t just any old lobbyist. He`s a lobbyist in Texas, where big money flows like oil. Buddy is also a regent for Baylor University. That means that along with looking out for the interests of folks who have lots of green, he also looks out for the interests of things green and gold.


Horns_bullet_medium Unreliable sources. Don't believe anything you read after this sentence.
