    Austin American-Statesman ^ | September 24, 2014 | Brian Davis
    The number of drug tests administered to University of Texas football players has skyrocketed under first-year coach Charlie Strong, according to university data obtained by the American-Statesman through an open records request. According to university records, an average of 104 tests were administered annually to football players from 2010 to 2013, the last four years under former coach Mack Brown. A total of 188 tests were administered the first eight months this year under Strong. At an annualized rate, that’s more than double the previous four years.

    FORT WORTH — Authorities are not allowing longhorns with the Fort Worth Herd to roam on the new Chisholm Trail Parkway during a weekend of festivities to open the tollway. Seems the North Texas Tollway Authority has decided the road is for cars, not cattle. The 28-mile toll road, named after the historical cattle trails that led to Oklahoma, Kansas and beyond in the mid-1800s, is scheduled to open to traffic Sunday. It will connect Interstate 30 near downtown Fort Worth to U.S. 67 in Cleburne. Crews will open one on- and off-ramp at a time beginning about 8 a.m....

    Former NFL and star college quarterback Vince Young has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection only years after signing a massive contract. Mr Young’s reckless spending habits have him running for cover from debt collectors despite making millions during his pro career. The filing was made last week in Houston as two lawsuits seeking more than $2million from the ex-Tennessee Titan were ruled in favor of the plaintiffs.

    Darrell K Royal, who coached the Longhorns to three national titles and became the biggest college football icon in a state that worships the sport, has died at age 88. On the field, Royal was known for his play-calling genius, taking the biggest of risks in the biggest of games and coming out a winner more often than not. Off the field, he rose from humble beginnings during the depths of the Depression to become a homespun populist rivaling Will Rogers. Royal was the winningest coach in University of Texas history, compiling a 167-47-5 record in 20 seasons from 1957...

Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin used the term “uncertainty” time and again Thursday in describing the state of the league, thanks to the start of the ESPN-owned Longhorn Network in Austin next month. “The (recent) announcement by ESPN that the Longhorn Network might carry a conference (football) game in addition to a nonconference game was troubling, and then following right after that was ESPN’s announcement regarding high school games...

Both players cited the desire to seek more playing time as their reason for transferring. “I want to thank Coach Brown and the staff for my experience at Texas,” Carter said. “I’ve enjoyed a lot of great times with my teammates and wish them continued success. I want to play now and have decided to transfer and continue to pursue my academic and football goals at another school.”

    The Longhorns have clinched the Big 12 South and will face off against Nebraska on December 5th. But first the Longhorns have to contend with their rival Texas A&M. The Longhorns are ranked 3rd in the BCS standings but the Aggies offense is ranked number 7 in the nation and could prove to be a challenge. After all, this is a game of rivalry and pride, ingredients that often fuel an upset, and the last thing the Longhorns need is a repeat upset of 2007. An upset is exactly what the Aggies are looking for.

If they have a good week of practice, they know you’ll see them get a chance to play more on Saturday. It has helped us and you can see it in our offensive work.” The Cowboys seem to be ready for the challenge too. “I always felt good about playing...

    One of the oldest, and most anticipated match-ups in sports took place yesterday at the Cotton Bowl with the 104th showdown between the University of Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners. This game has been a hot topic of conversation since the last meeting, a high scoring affair where Texas topped OU, 45 -35. This year Oklahoma’s record is 3-2, while Texas is 5-0. Texas to date, however, has fallen short of fans expectations with the running game not gaining ground and the passing game lagging behind. However, Texas’ defense and special teams has saved the day in the last...

But that’s old news, as you know it’s always the next game that counts. As for this game, the story goes… The first quarter started with a flag against Tech. But Tech’s QB, Taylor Potts got his team moving quickly with the Horns’ defense seemingly dragging their feet. It almost looked like the Horns’ defense was playing scared. However, as soon as Longhorn fans start to...

    With 100 Texas-Oklahoma games in the history books, it's time to draw a few conclusions about the Red River shootout (we still find "Red River Rivalry" to be a mouthful). First, Texas will win Saturday 16.5 to 15.7. OK, that's not a real score, but it is the historical average for points scored in this game. In all, the Longhorns have won 56 of the first 100 Texas-Oklahoma games. OU lays claim to 39, and five were tied. For years, the game was known for its close outcomes. Forty-nine games have been decided by nine points or fewer. The 1996...

The ballots were made public Monday, a first for the coaches' poll, which is used by the Bowl Championship Series in its standings formula. The BCS had urged the coaches to remove the secrecy in their poll after the 2004 season, when Texas made a late surge in the polls to earn a Rose Bowl bid over California.

    Handicapping the Heisman: The road to college football's top award. Heisman Contender of the Week 1. RB Reggie Bush, USC — There is no end to what Bush will do to help his Trojans win. He runs, he catches, he returns kicks….he’ll even push QB Matt Leinart into the end zone if it’ll keep USC unbeaten and atop the polls. As the star of last week’s thriller in South Bend, Bush has ascended like a rocket to the top of many voters’ leaderboards. When Leinart was struggling, it was No. 5 who carried the offense. And when Leinart was struggling...

    DALLAS -- Confident that a thorough security plan for the Cotton Bowl was developed before a deadly explosion outside the University of Oklahoma's football stadium last week, authorities said no drastic new safeguards will be made for Saturday's game between Texas and Oklahoma. But authorities warned that security personnel around the Cotton Bowl will be more alert in response to the blast, which investigators say was caused when explosives attached to a student's body detonated within 100 yards of where more than 80,000 fans were gathered inside Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. "That's one of things we drilled into the heads of...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Vince Young connected in the clutch and won it for Texas with his arm, more than his legs - just like a star quarterback is supposed to. Young, best known for his highlight-reel runs, threw a 24-yard go-ahead touchdown to Limas Sweed with 2:37 left and No. 2 Texas defeated No. 4 Ohio State 25-22 Saturday night in the much-anticipated first meeting between two of college football's most storied programs. Young's floating TD pass over a defender capped a 72-yard drive during which his biggest plays were through the air, including a third-and-6 completion of 9...

    Cowboys, wannabes set out on 650-mile trail ride BY T.A. BADGER Associated Press Writer BANDERA, Texas - Dozens of cowboys and wannabes hitched up their horses and wagons in this Hill Country town on Monday and pointed them north along a historic route used by 19th-century cattle drovers to get their beef to market. The hardy travelers plan to take seven weeks to cover the 650 miles from Bandera, the self-proclaimed Cowboy Capital of the World, to the famed Wild West outpost of Dodge City, Kan. The ride will follow what was known as the Western Trail, along which millions...

    Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle {snip} Unexcused absence Stoops came to mind Sunday in the wake of how the Texas Longhorns dealt with their loss to Cal State Fullerton in the College World Series. They disgraced themselves. They disgraced their school. What a nice finishing touch to a splendid season. Instead of winning their second national championship in three seasons, the Longhorns became the first team in at least 17 years to refuse to participate in the College World Series trophy presentation. Aren't they splendid ambassadors for the University of Texas? Let's be clear about who we're blaming here. The Texas...
