Texas buzzing with confidence to start season

There's a buzz surrounding the Texas Longhorns that hasn't been felt the last few years. At least that's the case in Austin. Starting Saturday night, the Longhorns will see if they can persuade the rest of college football to take notice of what coach Mack Brown thinks could be the team that returns Texas to prominence. A game against an overmatched opponent such as...

Kicking an unfamiliar problem at No. 15 Texas

(Eds: Updates.) By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports Writer Texas coach Mack Brown has an unfamiliar problem: The Longhorns' field-goal kicking is not good. For years, good kicking at Texas was simply taken for granted. Scholarship players and walk-ons alike made Texas 9-0 in the Brown era when the Longhorns needed a field goal in the final two minutes to win, including a Rose Bowl victory...

Penn State: Receiver and kicker leave team, but should we care?

I don’t want to say we’re being purposely misled by media coverage of Penn State’s football team in the wake of NCAA sanctions, but Thursday’s report that Penn State was losing its backup kicker was reported with this lede: “Penn State lost its 13th player since the football program was hit with NCAA sanctions this summer in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal when...

Texas playing 'Wild Bunch' special teams

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports For the kicking team, the best kickoffs are the ones that sail deep into the end zone or all the way through it, leaving no chance for a return for a touchdown. No. 14 Texas is challenging that notion, daring teams to bring it out and punishing ball carriers when they do. Through their first two games against Wyoming and...

Penn St. coach backs embattled kicker

Kicking woes underscore a larger problem for Penn State. Coach Bill O'Brien's offense will need to improve in the red zone if the Nittany Lions plan on making any splash in the Big Ten. It's getting tough enough after an 0-2 start in nonconference play. After forcing four turnovers inside Virginia territory in a 17-16 loss last week to the Cavaliers, resilient Penn...

Texas Football: Mack Brown Will Put Longhorns Back On The Map

In NCAA sports, the name Mack Brown means something. It means Texas. It means Longhorn football. It means pride. All of these traits of the Mack Brown name are a form of dominance. The numbers alone spell out that dominance (141-39 at Texas, 227-113 all time). Brown was responsible for great tenures at Tulane and North Carolina. Now in his 15th season at the helm of the Longhorns...

Five Penn State Players that Georgia Should Recruit

Couple that with the much publicized attrition that Georgia has had, it would benefit Georgia (as I'm sure it would pretty much...
