I only have to look back one year, to see a Texas loss to Tech.
But no flying batteries and bags of urine to worry about this year.

Well... the answer is Elko.  Took some drama to get there but I guess he's the man.

Decent enough hire.  His defenses were great when he was at A&M and he's got a reputation for being a solid program leader rather than a disorganized mess ala Jimbo.  What I like is he's just a football coach... it's not flashy.... no pomp and circumstance.... no grand entrances.... just a dude who can coach well.  That's about all I could ask for.

Guy stepped off the plane at 2am and immediately into an F-150 and headed off.  Get to business.

I think it'll be a good hire.  Not sure why there needed to be any drama but well there you have it.

I'm not either.  Won't get into that, but either way... we got a solid hire.  

As MDT mentioned on the SEC board, I think retaining Petrino would be a good idea.  And Dameyune Craig who's a fantastic recruiter.  Sounds like Robinson is likely staying but until it's "official"... who really knows around these parts.  

This along with the changes coming to the SEC and the CFB playoff next year, should bring some much needed excitement back to College Station next season.

Looking at a nice sunny but cool day here in the A.  45°F now and warming up.  I should be able to get some running in.

You now what Satchel Page said about that.

He called one of his pitches a bat-dodger.  Wonder what kind of pitch I'd call it.  

I was not a good pitcher, but I could throw a killer knuckle ball.  Hurt my elbow, tho, so I refused to do it much.
