RT @gtconway3d: Nunes is an utter disgrace. His statement, and he, are pure garbage.
Is there anything we don't need more than Season Three of "The Deuce"? It may be worse than "Vinyl."
"My memories are hazin' me" by Ryan Bingham ("Blue") is the best lyric I've heard in a long time. Newest LP "American Love Song" (co-produced by Charlie Sexton) is the Stones of Texas songwriting. "Exile On Frito Pie Lane"?
Overaggressive play and conservative playcalling killed Texas, not just on the offsides to block a kick Ehlinger would've made meaningless, but DBs trying to do too much. Today's heartbreaker will make Texas better next year.
That's gonna be a long plane ride home for Texas, who came from 13 points behind in the 4th quarter and then lost it on an offsides, when they had the ball coming back with two minutes to go. ISU 23, Tex 21.
Texas averages 1.2 yards per bubble screen. Keeps calling it. Two three-and-outs to start the game. And the defense has just caused one for Iowa State.
What a dreadful opening for the Texas defense. And offense wasn't much better. This has the makings of a 52- 17 game.
Black folks I know- or follow on Twitter- seem to love "Succession" the way white folks loved "The Wire."

Remember, 86-year-old Willie Nelson postponed the end of his tour in August because of difficulty breathing. Last night he struggled alone, but when joined by Kacey Musgraves the harmony was poignant and powerful. A message to us all. youtube.com/watch?v=4juzFa…

KVUE Crime Files: The Case of Rodney Reed | KVUE youtu.be/bOl_hGVa73E via @YouTube

Rodney Reed victim Linda Sclueter: "I asked him, 'What do you want? What the hell do you want from me?' and he said, 'I want a blowjob,' and I said, 'You’ll have to kill me if you want anything form me,' and he said, 'I guess I have to kill ya then' kvue.com/article/syndic…
Six years ago, as a resident of Bastrop county and curious about the Rodney Reed case, I went to the courthouse and read the trial transcripts for two days. Then I wrote this: michaelcorcoran.net/archives/3005
Good day to be a Longhorns fan. Football team beat K-State 27-24. Basketball team beat Purdue 70-66. Both ranked opponents.
After that cheap shot by Jalen Green, Texas deserves to lose.

Alex Rodriguez, Tony Romo and Chris Webber are infamous chokers in baseball, football and basketball. Now three of the top broadcasters in their fields. Big Papi was clutch as hell, but he sucks in the booth.
Texas was badly outplayed by TCU today 37-27. Any hopes for a Big 12 championship are over. Thank god for Texas Tech or we might not even be bowl eligible this year, after likely losses to Kansas State, Iowa State and Baylor.

Estelle Getty would've played that pass better.
TCU gets away with pass interference, then keeps a drive alive after a questionable roughing the passer call. TCU 10, Texas 3.

Nats to win first two two games at Houston. Astros looked like WS favorite on Saturday, but four days later they've got about a 10% chance to win. 10-2 in 8th inning.

An "Afternoon Delight" for Horns in Morgantown, WV: youtube.com/watch?v=MqZHgU…
Oh, man, the Sam Cosmi TD was delicious! Texas 35-WV 17. Will be a top ten NFL pick at LT.
Throwing into four-man coverage? Duvernay was open on the side. INT Ehlinger.
Texas punts again. Ehlinger seems to not be himself after hard hit. Texas 21, WV 14 in 3rd quarter.
Love to watch these Longhorns play. The D'Shawn Jamison interception was Odell Beckham Jr. - worthy.
Missed West Virginia field goal could be the turning point in this game. Ehlinger with heroic TD run makes it 21-14 just before the half.
Texas WR Devin Duvernay has had fewer drops in his career than Willis Alan Ramsey's album release schedule.
Texas DBs out with injuries: Caden Sterns, BJ Foster, Chris Brown, Jalen Green, DeMarvion Overshow.
Brandon Jones is punt-shy after Okla St. fumble. Lets catchable punt roll to one-foot line. Move Duvernay to punt returner.
LB Deli makes a play on defense. Then, chapter one in The Autobiography of Malcolm Epps." Texas 7, WV 7.
WV opens with penalty-aided drive and TD bomb. 7-0. Not worried.

There's been some love, some hate on the new Sturgill Simpson album. But you have to admire that he made a Ric Ocasek tribute LP so quickly.
In this week's segment of Build a Better Title, the new Sturgill Simpson should be called "Kentucky's Got the Best Weed."
