Horns_bullet_mediumJustin Tucker is taking over the kicking duties.

Tucker has kicked off and he's punted.

This season, the junior finally is going to get a chance to kick one for Texas.

"This is the reason they recruited me, to kick field goals and kick off," Tucker said. "Kicking field goals is a part of me. It's therapeutic. It is what I've been training for all through high school."


Horns_bullet_medium  Kheeston Randall doesn't dwell in the world of regular people.

Based on what others have told him, Kheeston Randall has deduced it is possible for someone to blend into a crowd, or to wear clothes bought off the regular rack, or to stand in front of a peer without knowing he could physically overpower that person if the inclination struck.

Randall realizes there are little people. He just has no experience in their world.


Horns_bullet_mediumMack Brown has only one thing on his mind. 

Run, run, run. That's all Texas coach Mack Brown wants to talk about.

For a program that won 25 games the past two seasons throwing the ball behind one of the most accurate quarterbacks in NCAA history, an iron-fisted commitment to building a punishing running game seems a bit drastic.


Horns_bullet_mediumSporting News has Texas at No. 9 in the preseason college football countdown.


Horns_bullet_medium  Just Bob. You know football season is just around the corner when Bob Stoops starts berating the media.

Stoops would not elaborate when asked if any other players would have to serve suspensions for the season opener.

"Whether they are or not, I don’t publicize that," Stoops said. "In fact, I shouldn’t have publicized his. I should have just let you guys count numbers at the opening game and let you figure it out who is there and who isn’t."


Horns_bullet_medium The Land Thieves's depth chart is out and seven true freshmen made the two-deep roster.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops released his latest depth chart on Monday, and likely inspired some double takes from some. Of the 44 spots on the offensive and defensive two-deep, seven are occupied by true freshmen, signees from the 2010 class who arrived on campus just this summer.

Two have established themselves as starters just weeks into their first fall camps.


Horns_bullet_medium  Sooner QB Landry Jones is on a mission.


Horns_bullet_medium Bo Pelini cannot make up his mind.

Don't expect an announcement on Nebraska's starting quarterback before the Sept. 4 opener.

So said coach Bo Pelini after the Huskers practiced for two hours Tuesday on the FieldTurf outside the Hawks Center.

"There have been no decisions made at any positions," Pelini said.


Horns_bullet_medium Tommy Tuberville is not taking any crap from Raider fans.

Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville was asked after Tuesday's practice what he had to say to fans who are against the coaching staff's decision to give quarterback Taylor Potts some leeway before turning the reins to quarterback Steven Sheffield.

"Get over it," Tuberville said.


Horns_bullet_mediumGarrett Gilbert and Landry Jones have something in common

Ask Landry Jones and Garrett Gilbert how their panicked reality compared to the average backup daydream. Both young men had careful-what-you-wish-for moments last season.

The freshmen backup quarterbacks at Oklahoma and Texas, respectively, were minding their own business, watching superstars Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy do their thing. Both Bradford and McCoy went down with arm injuries. Coaches of teams ranked No. 3 and No. 2 in the nation at the time looked at wide-eyed youngsters and said "You're in."
