Just in case you missed it …

… here are a few headlines from the past week that everyone should be aware of.

  • Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has decided to return to football at UT after coming one centimeter shy of the finals for the long jump at the World Championships in South Korea. He said he missed football more than he thought. I don’t care why he came back, I’m just glad 84 will be on the field this week bringing a little more experience to a very young receiving corps. Check out Goodwin’s interview on the Texas practice report.
  • Thank goodness another team is taking the spotlight off of Texas and the Longhorn Network. Texas A&M’s attempt to join the SEC may be held up by none other than … BAYLOR! The Bears are threatening litigation, which was the only thing the SEC said would keep them from absorbing the Aggies. Kind of like Superman telling the world his only weakness is Kryptonite.
  • Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops says the annual Red River Rivalry game between OU and Texas isn’t “necessary” if the landscape of college football changes and the two are not in the same conference. Watch the video if you can stomach all of that crimson.
  • The depth chart only has minor changes for the week against BYU. David Ash is now the official third string QB with Connor Wood gone. Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown are still in an either/or position for second string RB, but they have flipped sides. What does this tell us? Expect to see more of Brown in the first half rather than last week where all his carries came in the second half. Lastly, with the arm injury to Demarco Cobbs, Aaron Benson will now back up Jordan Hicks while Chet Moss moves in behind Emmanuel Acho.
  • Texas has cracked the top 25 of the AP Poll. The Longhorns are ranked 24th after their 34-9 victory over Rice. The rest of the poll looks like this:

    Bob Stoops is a tool and from Ohio. Texas vs Ou is a classic that has to be played every year!
