I chat on Mondays and Fridays around lunch.
* Texas lands a commitment from CB Kobe Boyce of Lake Dallas, who kind of reminds me of Chykie Brown in terms of his film and measurables (6-0, 183). Long arms, good hips, closing speed.
* Scout's No. 2 player in the 2017 Scout 300 - LB Dylan Moses, a Baton Rouge native now at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. - told Scout's Greg Powers he moved Texas to No. 1 on his list - ahead of Alabama and LSU - after talking to Charlie Strong about how he'd be used in UT's defense.
Moses said he loves Strong and the Texas coaching staff.
Could anyone imagine a recruiting class in 2017 that included LBs Moses, Anthony Hines (No. 15 on Scout 300) and Baron Browning (No. 19 on Scout 300)?
Insane to think about, but not out of the realm ...
* Texas baseball - the more things change, the more they stay the same.
It seemed like moving Morgan Cooper into the No. 1 spot in the weekend rotation served Texas well vs TCU, because Mo Coop had been really good for Texas all season.
But Cooper struggled with his location to start against OU, and the Sooners put four runs in the first inning in Game 1 in Norman on Friday, and the Longhorns had no answer in a 6-1 loss.
In Game 2, after a quality start by Ty Culbreth and some clutch hitting by Tres Barrera and Patrick Mathis, Josh Sawyer ended up saving the day in a 5-3 win.
In Game 3, Texas had OU 3-1 in the T6, and then Travis Duke walked the first batter, the second batter reached on an infield fielding error, and then a single brought both runs home.
After two-plus scoreless innings of relief from Chase Shugart, coaches called on Connor Mayes who loaded the bases and then gave up a game-winning, walkoff single as OU took the series with a 4-3 win in Game 3.
The Longhorns appear to be running out of answers in terms of shuffling the lineup.
Texas (12-16 overall, 3-3 B12) will play A&M Corpus Christi on Tuesday and then hit the road again at winless Kansas State (0-6 in B12 play) and 12-17 overall.
* Who you got tonight? UNC? Or Nova? I'll take Nova (ensuring UNC wins!)
