Texas running back D’Onta Foreman had a tremendous season on the field for the Longhorns last year, rushing for 2,028 yards, scoring 15 touchdowns, and winning the Doak Walker award for best running back in the nation. Off the field, he suffered a tremendous loss.
If you take nothing else from your media consumption today, let it be this: You are probably not drinking enough water. Proper hydration is key to a whole host of benefits, including better digestion, more energy, better skin and hair, better circulation, and sharper faculties. Are you drinking water right now? Drink…
Officials whistled WVU’s Elijah Macon for a foul on this play; all three refs were looking directly at the play—in which two Texas players foul each other, and no Mountaineers are to blame for anything—and they still screwed it up. Big 12 officials seem as good at their jobs as Texas’s basketball and football teams…
Yes, West Virginia is up big at the half over Texas. But spiritually, we don’t see how they ever recover from the devastation of this Jarrett Allen dunk.
Last week, Texas hired Baylor assistant Casey Horny to work as a special teams assistant under incoming coach Tom Herman. Horny is a Texas alum and spent three years as a graduate assistant in Austin, but he worked at Baylor for nine years before coming back to Texas. Horny was part of the group of Baylor coaches who…
Texas head coach Charlie Strong may not have the support of Longhorn boosters, but he’s got his players, and that’s going to make this break-up even messier.
Hours after the Austin American-Statesman reported today that Texas officials had decided to fire head football coach Charlie Strong, the university released a statement dismissing the “rumors.” But their statement didn’t express support for Strong either, saying they would “evaluate the body of work after the regular…
Texas boosters were reportedly pressuring the school to fire head football coach Charlie Strong earlier this week, since his third season at the school has followed the same rocky pattern as the first two. There was at least potential for modest improvement—if the Longhorns had won out, with Kansas and TCU as the only…
Texas running back D’Onta Foreman was a profile in courage as he dragged half a dozen Texas Tech defenders to the goal line. Then, tragically, he fumbled—and the Red Raiders’ Douglas Coleman picked up the ball for a 100-yard fumble return touchdown, turning the Longhorns’ go-ahead score into a TTU lead-increaser.
Enormous Oklahoma State defensive lineman Vincent Taylor blocked a Texas extra point attempt, scooped up the loose ball and lateraled it to Trey Flowers for a defensive two-point conversion in one of numerous plays that have thus far made for a madcap first half in Stillwater.
One of this weekend’s wildest games got even stranger when Notre Dame surrendered the lead to Texas on a late touchdown, only to equalize the score when Shaun Crawford returned the Longhorns’ blocked point-after attempt the length of the field for two points.
Football is a dangerous sport, especially if you are not playing it:
Five years into the grand experiment, and the Longhorn Network is kind of a disaster. It’s losing money hand-over-fist: reportedly $48 million since its launch, with annual losses hovering in the millions. Subscriber fees are painfully low, and ESPN is locked into this thing for another 15 years. And according to…
Paul Jesperson’s half-court desperation heave found the bucket and delivered the Northern Iowa Panthers to the NCAA tournament’s second round, erasing a game-tying basket with two seconds remaining by Texas’s Isaiah Taylor and eliminating the Longhorns.
Longhorns guard Eric Davis Jr. tried to stay with the Kansas Jayhawks in transition, even though Texas was losing by 29 in Monday’s game. That effort lined him up perfectly to be on the receiving end of a Jamari Traylor dunk.
Texas police arrested former Tennessee Titans and Texas Longhorns quarterback Vince Young Sunday night, and charged him with one count of driving while intoxicated.
#3 ranked North Carolina went down to Austin with a 7-1 record and a heap of momentum after beating Maryland and lost to the Longhorns on a last-second, buzzer-beating jumper from Javan Felix.
Texas is embarrassing Baylor 17-0 early in a game the Bears ought to be winning easily, and some aggression made its way to the field late in the first quarter. It’s as if the Longhorns and Bears wanted to show us how well they can portray a baseball fight. Also, this guy:
