Bevo's Daily Roundup - July 27, 2010



40 days (give or take a few hours).

Be careful what you wish for.

Horns_bullet_medium Barking Carnival looks at the Cornhuskers' need for revenge.

Lucile Laughlin a 91 year old fan who grows tomatoes for her neighbors, believes that Mack Brown is Nick Saban incarnate when it comes to underhanded tactics, as evidenced by the one second put back on the clock at the 2009 Big 12 Championship game.

"They put that second back up, and you thought you had seen the last of the good people. When people do things like that to win, they might as well all fall in the ditch, hadn’t they," lamented Lucile.

She also said, "You reap what you sow. If you do a dirty thing like that, you’ll somehow get a slap back in your face. Don’t you believe in that? When you do something like that, it’s going to come back and bite you in the butt. Now you know what I feel."


Horns_bullet_mediumCoach Brown is everywhere. Mack Brown speaks to ESPN radio.

Horns_bullet_mediumThere is an embarrassment of riches in Stillwater. 

And it could be a quarterback competition like never before, with the Cowboys collecting QBs like never before.

Consider the potential depth chart behind center for 2011 spring drills: Brandon Weeden, Johnny Deaton, Nate Sorenson and Walsh.

That's a quarterback lineup to envy, in stark contrast to the thin position the Cowboys have lived with for much of the recent decades.



Horns_bullet_mediumTommy Tuberville doesn't mince any words about agents.

  We act like this is a new situation. This has been going on forever. This has been a nightmare for all of us, and there’s really no way to handle it. As we know, money’s involved. When money’s involved, then anything can happen. There’s a lot of blame to go around in all this, but bottom-line, it comes back to the coaches because you’ve got to educate these kids on what they can and can’t do and then know what’s going on.


Horns_bullet_mediumDan Beebe has some thoughts on the agent issue

In this case, nagging issues may require radical remedies, like the one Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe first posed while serving on an NCAA committee more than 15 years ago. During a meeting, he suggested an outside-the-box solution, one that would allow college athletes to have agents as long as a contract exists between the agent and the educational institution as well.

"Then everything is on the table," Beebe said last week.



Horns_bullet_medium Should the NFL even care about the agent issue in college sports?


Horns_bullet_mediumFrom the Big 12-2 Media Days

Horns_bullet_medium Mike Sherman needs to brush up on Aggie football history.

"Our former students dream of the days of the mid-80's and 90's when we were the marquee team...I think we're getting closer to that point. This season for us is about taking that next step... I think the Big 12 needs A&M to step up to the plate, and we're ready to step up to that challenge."

Just like the mid-80's and 90's?


Horns_bullet_mediumHere are thirteen questions no one will dare to ask at the Big 12-2 Media Days

Mack Brown, Texas: You do realize your offensive line will have to block this year, right? There’s no Vince Young or Colt McCoy to scurry around making plays or Jamaal Charles to outrun defenders to the corner. UT’s hogs - which have given up at least 25 sacks each of the last three seasons - have to get tougher and more consistent.

Horns_bullet_mediumHow thoughtful. Black Heart Gold Pants helps Iowa State find a bowl game.


Horns_bullet_medium College athletes have very little privacy.


And finally...
