Texas' Yuya Ito: "I can't really say anything right now. I'm just blanking. ... We had some ups and downs, but glad we got through."
Texas lost its coach in March to the college admission scandal. But Horns rose to No. 1 in ITA rankings, won Big 12 title and knocked off defending champion Wake Forest. https://t.co/PbooxhWvyv
Game, set, championship. Texas wins its first NCAA men's national title with a 4-1 win over Wake Forest.

Texas senior Rodrigo Banzer, playing in the No. 6 slot, closes out his first set with a 7-5 win. Horns win four out of six first sets vs. Boilers.

Texas coach Tom Herman to receive two-year extension, pushing his deal to 2023 hookem.com/story/texas-co…
Herman’s extended deal will give him essentially a new five-year (fully guaranteed) contract. That’s critical for recruiting. More wins = more money.
Texas coach Tom Herman is slated to get a two-year extension, pushing his deal to the 2023 season, according to UT regents agenda. He’d make $6.5mm in 2022 and $6.750mm in ‘23. No officials commenting until regent vote. https://t.co/TjE3gKeGJD

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) glad that NCAA will start talks on name, image, likeness issues for athletes. Called it a first step. “But that’s far from enough.” Also labeled it “a civil rights issue.”
Handicapping other kickoff times... OSU-Texas is the best Big 12 game on Sept. 21. Maybe that's at night? Texas-OU is the same day as Bama-A&M. Maybe RRS at 2:30, Aggies at night?
An ESPN spokesman tells me that College GameDay site selection is not finalized this far out. But LSU-Texas is a likely candidate for Sept. 7.

NBA-bound Jaxson Hayes said he finished out this semester because it helps Texas’ APR. “I also want to come back and get my degree. The only way I can do that is finish in good standing this semester.”
Texas football had a 972 APR score this year from the NCAA. Tom Herman's bonuses are all results oriented. He is due a $1mm stay bonus if he's the coach on Dec. 25, 2019.
