Several FBS quarterback prospects stood out at the Round Rock SQT on Saturday. The possible Texas target there was 2014 Lake Travis APB Varshaun Nixon, as the 'Horns will likely target a player at his position in the class and he's one of the most highly-regarded recruits in 2014 there.
The Longhorns had several players made the cut, including Malcolm Brown, Kenny Vaccaro, Alex Okafor, and Jackson Jeffcoat. But is Brown even the best running back on the team. And what about Carrington Byndom, who was left off the list?
Well... uh, I'm glad Pittman wants to stand up for his boys, but there are better ways to do that other than elbowing someone in the throat. Dexter is a big dude; I'm sure that hurt a lot. Disappointing play. I guess he felt like Stephenson needed to really feel like he was choking if he was going to make such gestures.
Including Rhodes the track star, Rhodes outplays Massington, and Rhodes feeds off trash talk...
Lots of interesting stuff to say about this. Powers makes $667k/year which is 17th in the country. Other Notables: Mike McKinney (ex A&M president): $1.9 million Gordon Gee (tOSU): $1.9 million Kent Hance (Texas Tech, general douchebag): $757k Also interesting to note that last year Powers oversaw $353 million in fundraising which is 4th in the country. I imagine fundraising is where a university president can make the biggest impact, so I think this is to his credit. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Plenty more to say about this; it's a worth a look.
In an assessment of realignment value that took into account revenue, football success, success in all sports, academic rankings, football attendance, and market value, the Longhorns came out on top. We. Are. The. Joneses. Who else made the top 10? Hint: That school across that river didn't make it.
