    Cowboy Basketball: Oakland Grizzles defeat the Pokes 55-56. Cowboys (1-1) in the Season. Texas Prairie View TODAY.

    Eddie is a Hall of Fame coach. He demanded the play hard and execute. It didn’t matter who the player was if they took an ill advised shot or did block out or turned it over they were grabbing some bench. It didn’t matter if we had an abundance of talent or not. Eddie was the master of taking a...

    Cowboys WIN exhibition against UCO Broncos. UT Arlington up Next in GIA on TUESDAY

    To be fair to the poster I believe he was thinking in terms of execution on the floor and getting back on defense…. This team has some very nice pieces to work with and time will tell if they reach their potential. Some people like myself are in the group that would like to some discipline on...

    NCAA Denies OSU Basketball Appeal

    I’m I understanding the scholarship reduction correctly in that for the next three years we can only have 12 scholarship players? That would be 1 scholarship per year.

    College Football Rankings Predictions?

    The loser of the Bama vs Georgia SEC championship game gets in. Unless Alabama gets a beat down, the committee will find an excuse to put them in the final four.

    McClean has a huge upside, but too much swing and miss to hit in the 3 hole as you alluded to above. If he cuts down on the strikeouts maybe he fits into 3 hole. Riggio gets healthy and he’ll be in the line up.

    I think if Trenkle doesn’t hit early on I could see Crull getting an opportunity. Trenkle has ton of potential and playing in the Cape last summer should give him confidence. In a short sample size Crull gave the Pokes a spark before suffering injury.

    Jake Thompson is in my opinion the best returning bat we have. Jake will be in the 3 hole. I do agree some of the returners get the first look, but by the time the Pokes get to big 12 play, the lineup may change a bunch. The power on this team is a strength, but leading the country in strike...

    History repeating itself…..

    Purdy wasn’t making high level NFL throws. The DB’s were playing so far off the ball it was pitch and catch and 6 plays latter a TD. I agree with the other poster that said our secondary hasn’t been great, but good enough against lesser talent. The pressure we didn’t get on Purdy bit us in...

    Troy Aikman

    I stand corrected just went back and looked at highlights and Aikman was running the wishbone. He was throwing out of the wishbone attack. Hell, if hadn’t transferred out I’m not sure he would have been walk after 4 years of running that offense.

    Troy Aikman

    Troy didn’t break his leg trying to be a wishbone QB. The game he snapped his leg against Miami and Troy was throwing the ball around the yard. Miami had Vinne Testaverde at QB. Airman got hurt and the back up was a freshman named Holloway. Switzer had to go back to the bone to fit...

    Jaylen Warren now considered a Heisman contender

    Robinson only carried the ball 9 times in the second half against OU for 36 yards. If Texas gives him the ball 15 times they would of beat OU. Sark tried to bury the Goons by throwing the ball and it backfired.

    Jaylen Warren now considered a Heisman contender

    Robinson isn’t going to win the Heisman because of the 3 loses TX has. I believe he’s the best RB in the country. I’ll say what I’ve said before, if you believe our D is one of the best in the country then 130yds is pretty good. Warren is going to play on Sunday’s damm good back.

    Official Game Thread: Oklahoma State vs. Texas

    Zero chance Sanders is better than Chelf.

    I’ll be shocked if Roc Riggio isn’t our starter at 2B. Huey has a very nice arm, but too much swing and miss in his bat. Maybe he plays short and battles it with Brown.
