Williams On Bill White

John Williams has done a little more digging on Bill White’s business record, and discovers White has been somewhat selective in promoting himself.

Hardly a shocker in a campaign.

Still, candidate White doesn’t especially like to talk about Frontera Resources, the one business he actually started on his own (and didn’t have handed to him) — and that’s has been a miserable failure.

White has run a fine campaign and spent a record amount. But surely not

More Horned Whiny Babies

The GMAC Bowl extended an official invitation to the TCU Horned Whiny Babies yesterday, after their pitiful showing against SMU.

TCU says they’ll get back to the bowl, and Gil LeBreton is doing some more whining on their behalf in the Star-Telegram today.

LeBreton and the Horned Whiny Babies are both losers. You join a conference, you agree to their bowl tie-ins, good and bad. You don’t get to pick and choose what you’d rather do. There’s

But things did not go well. Not well

The Huskers obviously needed to do something. Solich has turned that national championship caliber program into a bunch

Coogs Finish At 7-5

It’s always a good day when Mack Brown loses.

But since Texas wasn’t playing yesterday, I’ll settle for a loss from his brother Watson Brown, head coach at UAB.

Art Briles and the Houston Cougars had a crisp offensive performance and didn’t give up many big plays on defense as they manhandled UAB, 56-28.

With the win, the Coogs move to 7-5 and should now be a lock for a bowl game — in the first season for
