Great video tribute to The Program.


Horns_bullet_mediumThe Dallas Morning News takes at look at the Horns' defensive line

During the spring, both coach Mack Brown and defensive coordinator Will Muschamp expressed their concern for the middle of the defensive line. But with a myriad of freshmen in Austin for the summer, it seems that won’t be a problem. There are a few who could have a starting spot within weeks. Think DTs Taylor Bible and Ashton Dorsey – two extremely talented young tackles with impressive size (Bible is 6-3, 300; Dorsey is 6-2, 290). Jackson Jeffcoat, Reggie Wilson and DeAires Cotton will provide depth.


Horns_bullet_medium Another article in the recurring theme of everyone hates Texas.

The targets of the morbid realignment humor have been the nine schools that have been portrayed as Texas' lackeys in the new-look Big 12.

For example, one of the more popular drawings is entitled "The Big TeXas Conference." It has transformed Texas' mascot from Bevo the steer into Bevo the dairy cow, with the logos of the other nine schools sucking its teats.

Of all the attempts to find a name for the downsized conference, the one that has to sting those nine schools the most is this one: "Bevo's B******" (it rhymes with witches.)

Horns_bullet_medium  The Raiders seem to like free-thinkers.

Tuberville is at his best when, contrary to common sense, political correctness and major college coaching tradition, he opens his mouth and original thoughts fly out, some of them with needles attached.

It’s a trait that endears him to his own fans and infuriates his rivals. He can drive an entire opposing fan base nuts just by putting on the right shirt or raising his right and left hands, with the proper number of fingers extended.


Horns_bullet_mediumCommitments just aren't what they used to be.

A daily reading of the content posted on contains more references to commitment than a year's subscription to Cosmopolitan. A player can commit to a program, but only if that program's coach considers the player's scholarship offer committable. If a player commits and doesn't plan to visit other schools, then he is considered a solid verbal. If a player commits but still plans to visit other schools, then he is considered a soft verbal. If that player's name is Keyser Soze, then his alias may or may not be Verbal Kint. If a player commits but doesn't want anyone to know, then he's a silent commit. If a silent commit decommits, it makes the same sound as a tree falling in the woods with no one around to hear.

College coaches often whine about the lack of actual commitment by their verbal commitments, but their complaints ring hollow when they yank scholarship offers because another player became interested in their school or when they hand out 200 scholarship offers for a 25-man class. It's easy to blame the 17-year-olds for failing to honor their word, but the 45-year-olds are equally at fault in this case.
