Feldman: Horns have best weight room ($)

1
The room, named for Saudi Arabia native and UT graduate Dr. Nasser I. Al-Rashid, is 20,000 square feet and also includes a 70-yard turf straight-away for timing and conditioning. More than half of the people I spoke to for this began their list with Texas.

Just a quick note: Fozzy is interning this summer at the company where I'm working. He's beyond nice and has been very cool about the constant fan adoration here. Anyway, it is pretty excellent running into him in the hall every day. Can't wait to see him on the field in 2 months!

Save the date for August 28. SA Madison and Aaron Green will be facing Steele HS and Malcolm Brown. This is a monster week 0 game. Well deserving of a national broadcast.

Not exactly Longhorn related but if you're a football fan this site should be bookmarked. Smart football is always informative and worth the time.

Looking at scheduling USC?

8

I generally avoid linking to Bohls, but this is an interesting tidbit: Texas will thoroughly examine its approach to scheduling nonconference football games, Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds told me last week. He wants two home-and-home series and one buy game at Royal-Memorial Stadium each year when the Big 12 turns to a nine league-game slate. Others have told me Texas will beef up the non-conference opposition. And that would be a good thing. Schedule maker Butch Worley is hard at work on it already, and has tried to book games with USC, which would be smart, given the Trojans' recent 30-scholarship penalty. Notre Dame might also appear on Texas' schedules. That would help Texas' BCS chances by enhancing what could be an iffy RPI, satisfy fans' yearning for better games, and get Mack Brown's team ready for Big 12 play.

Connor Rowe Signs with the Nationals

No word on how much money he got, but not at all a surprise. The Nats have scored 1 run in 20 innings this weekend against the White Sox, so Rowe will fit right in.
