Longhorns Pop Some Viagra to Battle the OU-beaters
Longhorn football fans have their own version of porn: watching someone else beat Oklahoma. For what is porn but being a voyeur instead of being part of the action?

'Out of Bounds': LHN Flounders, Patriots and Porn Stars, and More
It's been a rough start for UT's upstart Longhorn Network. As of the Kansas/UT kickoff Saturday at 6pm, the only Central Texas homes that will be able to tune in to this lopsided affair will be those that subscribe to Grande or Verizon FiOS. Not to mention the sad Longhorn fans spread throughout the country who have no access to the mighty LHN.

UT Looks to Easily Snare Jayhawks
Fans are notorious for taking outcomes for granted. Journalists too. In the event you’ve had it drummed out of your head by discussion of a Big 12-West Virginia union, the Longhorns (4-2) have a home game this Saturday – albeit one that is sane to sleep on.

OSU UT Preview
The Longhorns return to DKR Texas Memorial Stadium without the luster of a perfect record, without a year’s worth of “scoreboard,” and – in all likelihood – a chunk of their dignity in the fallout from last week’s 55-17 manhandling by No. 3 Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl.

Stoops Ready to Helmet Tackle Longhorns
My mysterious voice-mail message from Bob Stoops*: Joe! How’s my favorite cranky scribbler? Coach Stoops here, bubba. Yeah, I read that piece you wrote pretending to be my brother. A laugh riot, compadre.

The Note Bob Stoops’ Brother Should Have Sent, but Didn’t Dare*
Dear Bob,
I love you like a brother, man. In fact we are brothers, aren’t we? That’s why it pains me to write this note. I’m proud of you, Bob. You do our Stoops family name proud. Your Oklahoma Sooners are No. 1 and we’re not, dammit.

Rose Bowl Redemption for the Horns
Only annual BCS bowl contenders like Texas can claim a relationship with a particular stadium – and not with the team that calls it home. In the 21st century, the Longhorns bowl history at the Rose Bowl – the site of Saturday’s 49-20 redemptive win over UCLA – has produced some of college football’s best theatre.

UCLA Villains Loom in Latest Longhorn Page-Turner
Our story begins in that fateful week the Longhorns decide who they are. You've heard that sort of bold announcement repeated about the often-baffling University of Texas football team. It began two years ago when they improbably made it to the championship game only to see Colt McCoy's arm turn into a withered kite string.

Horns Look To Declaw Cougars
BYU did in 2010 what the Longhorns couldn’t: play their way into a bowl game. Though, a lot of teams are coming off better seasons than Texas’ dismal 5-7 2010. The Cougars (7-6 last year) played in the fringe New Mexico Bowl – drubbing UTEP 52-24 – while the Longhorns reeled from their first losing season in the Mack Brown era.
