Once LeBron broke the suit/shorts barrier, it became a watershed moment in NBA fashion.
Bamba on ESPN: "Just to tease you Mavs fans, I was talking to Dirk before my workout down in Dallas. I got him to promise three more years if Dallas drafts me. So, just saying."
Ready for the NBA draft. Mo Bamba will be the 11th first-round pick from Texas since 2006. That includes a two-time Finals MVP and future stars with the Pacers, Nets and... Mavs?

Always, always, always go get the lead runner. Smart play by Texas there.

What’s really sad is that most (all?) of today’s Texas athletes probably don’t know Arkansas is/was a rival. They won’t understand the fan hostility.

Note that this NCAA release says the rule language has been sent to other sports to determine "what number of games would be appropriate." twitter.com/NCAA/status/10…
Two blockbuster NCAA rule changes today. Football players can play in 4 games without losing their redshirt. And you can now seek a transfer without telling current school.
Texas has hired Kentucky's Edrick Floréal, a 25-year veteran, to become the Longhorns new track and field coach.
OK, so you're Tom Herman. The USC game goes into OT. Do you want the north (closed) end, or the south end with jacked-up students + band? twitter.com/chaddylo/statu…
One more note on seating. Students now get first-come, first-served. So we'll find out real quick how early (and how many) Texas students want to line up for good seats.

Texas will face either Arkansas or South Carolina in the first game at the CWS. Texas Tech could make it, too. Tech v. Duke has no score in T3 in Lubbock.

Final at the Disch: Texas 5, Tenn Tech 2. Nolan Kingham gets the nail-biting final outs. Longhorns headed to Omaha and the College World Series.
Every pitch is basically in the FieldTurf.
RT @CedGolden: Announced crowd of 7,370 is tops for 2018.
Tenn Tech 1B Chase Chambers is one of their team leaders. But he's had two major mistakes on pop-ups today. Both at-bats ended with hits for Texas.
Holy smokes. Tennessee Tech can't catch a pop-up, right in front of home plate. Texas runner scores. Major error. Horns up 5-2.
Kody Clemens with another bomb. Then Petrinsky hits one, too. Texas leads Tennessee Tech 4-0 at the moment in B3. Winner to Omaha.
International House of Burgers. No.
Gotten several email Qs from fans mad about today's noon game time. Texas has no control over this. NCAA sets the game time. Temperature not a factor in decision. It's TV.
There may come a day when Texas fans/players/whoever don't get bent out of shape when opposing teams flash the Horns Down. But I'll be dead by then.
