Football recruiting:

Kheeston Randall: Still Solid
Monsignor Kelly High School in Beaumont, Texas is home to one of the biggest surprises in the 2008 class. Not many people had heard of Kheeston Randall before he committed to Texas, but that changed in a hurry. Several big time offers have come since, but Randall isn't interested.

Fuller proving himself at shortstop
Daily Texan
It was one of the most routine plays a shortstop can make. Field a grounder. Throw to first for the easy out. But there was much more at stake when Chais Fuller did it April 27 against Oklahoma State. This time it was the final out of a 3-2 Texas victory. It was also the play that proved he could once again be Texas' starting shortstop as the team closed out the season.

Austin American-Statesman
Kevin Durant has remained a fixture around the Cooley Pavilion, participating in individual workout sessions and team pickup games as though he were still a part of the Texas basketball program.

A free spirit and ex-Horn rides on
Austin American-Statesman
Woodrow "Pack" Landfair can tell you about the weekend he spent sleeping in a homeless shelter in New York. Or the time he spent working as a bouncer at a Jewish singles party in New York City last Christmas. How about running a homeless shelter in New Orleans for nearly a month? The former Texas Longhorn catcher has experienced a lifetime of memories — all in the past 10 months.

Beloved at first sight
Boston Globe
The date was May 15, 1984. That's when Roger Clemens made his major league debut in Cleveland's mammoth and decrepit Municipal Stadium. He pitched well enough to win and he pitched poor enough to lose. He slogged through a bizarre 5 2/3 innings, allowing 11 hits and five runs (four earned) and he wound up with a no-decision in a 7-5 Red Sox loss.
