Bielema thinking positive after Arkansas meltdown

ARLINGTON, Texas -- For three quarters, it look as if Arkansas was going to get a statement win with an upset of No. 6 Texas A&M and send a message to the rest of the SEC that it's back.  But penalties throughout the game proved costly in a 35-28 overtime loss at AT&T Stadium on Saturday.  The Razorbacks were able to pound the ball all afternoon with 285 yards rushing...

Dez Bryant: I've got Tony Romo's back

IRVING, Texas -- No matter how bad things get this season, don't expect Dez Bryant to throw Tony Romo under the bus after a poor outing. It's been clear throughout Bryant's career that he's going to support Romo even after a three-interception performance like he had Sunday. "Tony is the quarterback," Bryant said Thursday. "He's my quarterback and...

There's plenty to cover in this week's best and worst wrapup. Let's get to it.  Best offensive performance: Jake Waters, QB, Kansas State Waters takes the early lead for the gutsiest performance we've seen from a Big 12 talent this season.

Big 12 thoughts: Week 2

The Big 12 put together a solid performance in Week 2. Here's what stood out to me. Mike Gundy needs to roll the dice with Daxx Garman. The reaction from OSU wasn't necessarily frenzied horror when J.W. Walsh made his way to the locker room for X-rays on his right lower leg. I'd say it was more curiosity, and I'm betting Mike Gundy and Oklahoma State liked what they...

Game won't be the same without Washington

ARLINGTON, Texas --€“ When things were going bad for the Texas Rangers and doubters were being critical of his team, manager Ron Washington liked to refer to his team as a submarine. He'd always say the club would resurface and there would be plenty of room for people to jump back on board the Rangers. Let's hope Washington resurfaces soon too. The game of baseball, another...

Jerry Jones: Michael Sam Cowboys jersey was never a consideration

Jerry Jones said Friday that he never considered selling a Dallas Cowboys Michael Sam jersey. Why not? Sam had one of the NFL's hottest-selling jerseys after he was drafted by St. Louis in May. The Cowboys owner and general manager just doesn't think the team needs to be selling jerseys of players who are on the practice squad. "It never crossed my mind," Jones...

Ross struggles in starting bid for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - Remember all that positive energy that Robbie Ross Jr. created with his five no-hit innings Saturday in Houston only two days after pitching for Round Rock? He negated all of that Thursday night against Seattle, regressing to the point where he retired just five batters before getting yanked in a 10-2 blowout loss to the Mariners. If the left-hander is trying to...

Chicken fried hot dog debuting at Texas A&M game

When Kyle Field unveils its ongoing renovations Saturday for Texas A&M's home opener against Lamar, a menu item may steal the show from the high-scoring Aggies. And because we're in Texas, that menu item is chicken fried. And on a stick. The chicken-fried steak dog may be a big attraction literally and figuratively, as it's a hand-battered chicken fried foot-long...

Jerry Jones: Cowboys' record won't determine Garrett's future

After leading the Dallas Cowboys to three consecutive eight-win seasons, it would seem that nine wins in 2014 could lock up a new deal for head coach Jason Garrett. Many thought Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones would fire Garrett after last season's .500 finish, but Jones decided to let Garrett finish out his contract. Jones says he has a way of evaluating Garrett...

After Game 1, how will the rest of the Sooners' season go?

In college football we change our opinion on what we think on a game-by-game basis. No other sport causes more flipping and flopping than football, and this season, with the new playoff in place, there's going to be a lot of opinions that change quite regularly. And how bout the teams Oklahoma will face this season? Here's a look at the remaining schedule and a few thoughts...

Cowboys will need a lot of help to get into playoffs

Barring a breakout performance from perhaps the most unheralded defensive units in the team's history, the Dallas Cowboys are going to need a lot of help to make a run at the playoffs. Fortunately, they play in the right division. Lost in all the talk of Jerry Jones' Johnny Football crush is the fact the Cowboys won five of six games against their NFC East rivals in 2013...

Astros mascot trolls Rangers Arencibia during game

Texas Rangers catcher J.P. Arencibia appears to have a rivalry brewing with a notable figure of another MLB team. No, it isn't Jeff Samardzija of the A's, or even Albert Pujols of the Angels. It is none other than Orbit, the green, furry mascot of the Houston Astros. The quarrel between the two appeared to begin in the fourth inning of Saturday night's game when Arencibia...

Texans struggle in preseason loss to Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- A perfect start for Carson Palmer and, even if it's just preseason, an impressive opener for the Arizona Cardinals. And just the opposite for the Houston Texans and new coach Bill O'Brien. Palmer was 5 for 5 for 84 yards and a touchdown in his lone series and the Cardinals went on to rout the Texans 32-0 on Saturday night. "Really, really great...
