On Monday evening, Brown definitely dodged a few tough questions in his trademark manner, but wasn't afraid to weigh in on some heavy issues and shout out a few fans. The dodgy Mack Bro

Proximity to Texas wasn't enough to keep Connor Lanfear in the 2015 class (Student Sports). Th

There remain some concerns but there's no denying the results so far look nothing like 2013. The Texas baseball squad sits at 9-3 after a successful weekend at the Houston College Classic, and that record includes a 9-1 mark in their last ten games after dropping a season-opening pair at Cal. The weekend featured a traditional Texas approach to baseball, with the Longhorns scoring a t
