"It is difficult to ever find a stranger box score than that of Texas' 42-28 win over Rice."Bill Connelly, writing about the weekend in college football. (Warning: Post also contains praise for Oklahoma ... and a fair bit of mirth about Arkansas.)
"There is no way a guy should hit a woman," he said. "There is no reason for it. If it happens, you need to find somewhere else to play. It isn't hard. Sometimes people think it's hard. You have values. Treat women with respect. No drugs. No weapons. How hard is that? I don't get it."Charlie Strong, on a visit to ESPN's Bristol campus yesterday.
"I would’ve definitely entertained it, but just knowing that I couldn’t, it kinda limited me. It was pretty awkward, but it was kind of expected. It would’ve been interesting to see Texas. They (Notre Dame) basically limited me to the schools that we wouldn’t play. I wasn’t really surprised by it."-- Former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson to FOX Sports
"It's less of a need. We don't really have those types of talks right now because of the way those guys have performed."Assistant head coach for offense/quarterbacks coach Shawn Watson on Thursday.
"Wheeler’s parents want him at Texas, but his (Wheeler’s) relationship with Frank Shannon is the only thing holding it back. However, Wheeler and Shannon had a long talk last night. Either way it looks like this is closer than most thought between OU and Texas."The Skyline linebacker is set to announce during the third quarter of the Under Armour Game and according to Football Brainiacs, another source in addition to the one cited above thinks Texas will be the pick.
"[The] reason why I came out early [was] because the Texans had the number one pick. I would have stayed if they weren’t going to pick me."– Vince Young on the 2006 NFL Draft, as revealed during 2006 Rose Bowl: A Football Life, which airs Friday on the NFL Network.
"They've simplified everything," said one Big 12 offensive coordinator. "Before you saw all these different fronts and coverages, and now it looks like they've thrown 80 percent of that (bleep) out. Now, it's basically Cover 3 and Cover 1, and they remembered that they've still got a lot of really good athletes over there."As told to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.
"He's fun to watch, but that's the way he practices. He takes it from practice to the game, and the same thing happens at practice. He's a student -- he's one of those guys that listens. Even during the game he'll come back and say, 'Hey, listen, when that guy checks, this is what it is, this is the run play it is. Or when he checks this, this is a pass play.' He's always talking and communicating on the sideline. He works, and that's the respect that the players give him because he works so hard."-- Texas head coach Charlie Strong on his star junior defensive tackle Malcom Brown.
