Texas and A&M Back to Thanksgiving

Brian Gamble (linebacker) after the infamous 1999 game following the Bonfire tragedy. I remember the early ass kickoff and the breakfast fiasco where the Longhorns never got served any at the Ramada. They ended up eating at IHOP or something. Major got food poisoning and Chris Samms had to start his first game as a Freshman in front of the most fired up crowd you've ever seen. I was in the stands that day and will never forget it:

Texas A&M and Texas will play their annual rivalry game on Thanksgiving night this year for the first time since 1993.

"I'm thrilled that ESPN has offered to move the game back to that traditional date of Thanksgiving," A&M athletic director Bill Byrne said.

The new contract calls for the game to be played on Thanksgiving the next two seasons. For more than a decade, the game has been played on the day after Thanksgiving.

"This tradition-rich rivalry between two great universities deserves this type of exposure," first-year A&M coach Mike Sherman said.

Yes We Can

Big 12 Hoops Race

Taking a look at the Big 12 ratings, there is still much uncertainity about who is going to make the NCAA field out of the conference.

While it looked a couple weeks ago like the league would get at 5 teams in and probably 6, much has chaged at this point with 4 games remaining for each team.

Baylor and Texas A&M both find themselves squarely on the bubble.

Here is the outlook right now:

For sure in the field of 65
Texas, Kansas, and Kansas St.

4 teams now stand at 6-6 in the conference and it will be tough for any of these teams to get in the field with only a .500 record in conference meaning these four teams need to win 3 of their last 4 conference games to gaurantee an at large bid. It would be a shame if the conference only gets 4 teams in this year, because overall the quality has been very good this year in the Big 12 and I have been known to criticize the conference in the past.

Anyways, here is a look at the four buble teams.

Baylor -- 17-8 overall 37 RPI 32 Strength of Schedule

Wins over Notre Dame and South Carolina. Losses to Arkansas, WAZZU.

Ramaining Games: at Colorado, Mizzou, A&M, at Tech

Texas A&M -- 19 - 7 overall 44 RPI 77 SOS

Wins over Ohio st. and alabama, Losses to Arizona

Remaining GAmes: Tech, at OU, at Baylor, Kansas

Texas Tech -- 14-11 overall 56 RPI 7 SOS

Wins over Gonzaga Losses to Butler, SHSU, New Mexico, Stanford

at A&M, Texas, at Kansas, Baylor

Oklahoma -- 18-9 overall, 28 RPI 6 SOS

Wins over Arkansas, Gonzaga, West Virginia Losses to Memphis, USC, Stephen F. Austin

@Nebraska, Texas A&M, @Okie St., Mizzou

If I had to make a guess looking at these resumes, I think Baylor and Oklahoma will 3 out of their last 4 to give the big twelve 5 NCAA teams with the outside possiblity of 6 if one of these other teams makes a deep conference tournament run.

Watch out for Oklahoma's trip to Lincoln and Baylor's trip to boulder because both games are huge trap situations.....

It should be interesting these last 2 weeks.

Since I know very few people probably watched the NBA All-Star game, check out Dirk Nowitzski's new TV Commercial.

See Description below from Robert Wilonski on wonderful UnFair Park blog by the Dallas Observer.

Till I can find a better version of the NBA's "Where Amazing Happens" ad featuring Dirk Nowitzki, which debuted last night during the NBA All-Star Game, this shot-off-a-TV version will have to do. One significant note: It's the first player-produced ad -- which is why Dirk told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram yesterday, "It's definitely good."

In honor of my good friend Cuyler's return to Texas, here a couple of You Tube clips from our beloved Longhorns.

Kenton Paulino hits one of the biggest shots in Longhorn Basketball history to beat West Virginia in the 2006 tournament sweet 16 in Atlanta...

Do you remember who Texas lost to in the Elite 8 game to reach the final four?

LSU would knock the Longhorns out to reach the final four.

4) LSU 70, (2) Texas 60 (OT)

Though the game was close throughout, Texas needed a three-pointer from Daniel Gibson to tie the game and send it to overtime. Gibson's shot, however, was the closest Texas came to defeating LSU, as the Tigers took over in overtime. LSU's Glen "Big Baby" Davis had 26 points and a game-clinching three-pointer while Tyrus Thomas chipped in 21 points and thirteen rebounds. Gibson had 15 but teammate LaMarcus Aldridge was a non-factor, scoring only four points as LSU advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 1986.

In my first ever game at Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium back in 1996, check out this hit by Bryant Westbrook . Don't ask who I was rooting for.. Check out the cameo by once uber recruit Ron Powlus .
