I don't think it's coincidence that we are, given our conference schedule, which has good teams on it (e.g., Baylor, TCU, KState) but not matchups that really excite anyone. Our biggest and best game of the year (provided Mack ...

Texas plays ND and at Cal in 2016 (and UTEP for what that's worth). Tough to squeeze in LSU with a 9 game conference schedule too - I for one would drop any ...

As I understand it (from what I'm reading) they're officially suspended one game but high likelihood of them never playing again. The one game suspension might be a courtesy to provide time to find a landing spot. But I could be ...

Honestly I don't know how it works exactly so don't know if they could. Houston's best chance for having a 50-50 fan split is at their home park. Any other field in the state and it's going t...

Maybe Texas should hope Houston hosts. Texas hits fifty points better on the road....

I work about a mile from both - previous advice is spot on, Franklin's brisket is just a tad, a tad, better than La BBQ (the pitmaster at La BBQ learned at Franklin). Ribs and pulled pork are comparable - but I think the sausage at La BBQ is much better. Typically the wait is a lot less at La BBQ ...
