From a strong defensive period for the Longhorns to notes on Joe Bergeron and Josh Turner, here are three thoughts on Texas's 56-50 win over Baylor.

Longhorn Network bad for Texas?

The Longhorn Network was looked at as an unbelievable advantage to Texas athletics when it started last year. However, it seems to football coach Mack Brown that it is turning into the opposite for his squad.


Natalie Portman spotted at Baylor-Texas tilt

As if it isn’t already hard enough being a college student, trying desperately to fit in among tens of thousands of peers while coping with the pressures of studying, self-esteem and just general survival away from our parents, it doesn’t help when Michael Fassbender shows up strutting his big ol’ dong around campus. But that’s apparently what happened on Saturday, as the...

College Football Rumors: Mack Brown To Part Ways With Texas After Knocking Longhorn Network?

Mack Brown does not sound like a man who wants to remain head coach of the Texas Longhorns. While he has said on numerous occasions, he has not plans to quit or retire, it almost sounds as if Brown is trying to lay the ground work to force the school to fire him at season’s end. It would make no sense for Brown to simply walk away, as he is still owed a good amount of money. But...

10 thoughts from the Texas vs. Baylor game

Just as many thought, the game Saturday was a shootout between two teams that are growing their young offenses while failing to fix their problems on defense. Led by Joe Bergeron’s 5 touchdowns, the Longhorns held on to beat the Baylor Bears 56-50 in a game that revealed more of the identity that this Texas [...]

Natalie Portman’s cleavage upstages Texas-Baylor game

The cameras at the Texas Longhorns vs. Baylor Bears college football game panned on Natalie Portman in all her low-cut lace top hotness last night. See the pic after the jump. And the web exploded. The screen shot got everyone in the blogosphere and twitterverse buzzing about how hot the MILF truly is. Judge for yourself Paul M. Banks is CEO of The Sports, an official...

Brown: 'I didn't ask' for Longhorn Network

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas coach Mack Brown once welcomed the Longhorn Network. Now he sounds as though it's become a headache and a window for opposing coaches to get an unfair peek into his program. "I didn't ask for it," Brown said Monday, noting he's worried that the six hours a week he spends taping three television shows and the network's access...

Fall Ball: Texas vs. SHSU

The Texas Longhorns played their first game of the season yesterday, matching up against the Sam Houston State Bearkats in a fall ball scrimmage at Disch-Falk Field. Using a lethal combination of hitting, bunting, and speed on the basepaths, Texas defeated the Bearkats 9-3. It was a far cry from the frustrating and often futile [...]

The Longhorn Network: Must Flee TV

Texas coach Mack Brown revealed his latest theory yesterday behind his team’s struggles. Mack has seen Bevo’s enemy, and it is us – or them. In sum, Mack says his program is “overexposed.” The Longhorn Network is broadcasting Texas’ secrets out to the college football world. If that’s not bad enough, he’s spending too much time filming shows and segments for the...

Mack Brown Says Stats Are Out The Window, Flips Bird At Himself

((HT: ESPN)) And all the Longhorns are evaluating now are wins... That's, probably, the healthy way to look at things since the kids under Manny Diaz have stopped playing defense in Austin... The latest evidence was last night playing another team that has stopped playing defense a few years ago in Baylor... Here's how the game started... By the end of things...

Texas 56, Baylor 50

Joe Bergeron ran for five touchdowns and Texas outlasted Baylor 56-50 Saturday night in another wild one in the Big 12, snapping the Longhorns' two-game losing skid. Bergeron fell one touchdown short of the school record held by Heisman Trophy-winning running back Ricky Williams. David Ash passed for 274 yards for Texas (5-2, 2-2 Big 12), which overcame another dismal effort...
