Pac-12 Presidents send out a letter with suggested changes to the NCAA

The NCAA has been a laughable debacle over the last decade and that situation has become worse under the organization’s President Mark Emmert. In fact, the way the NCAA has governed college athletics has been so controversial, that a couple of members of the United States House of Representatives talked about passing legislation to force the NCAA to change. In fact, the Pac-12 athletic conference has sent out a letter to the presidents of the universities in the other power conferences (ACC, SEC, Big-12, and the Big Ten) with 10-points that they would like to see changed.

These 10-points that were made by the Pac-12 presidents made include giving the student athletes a greater voice in the decision-making process, providing medical assistance or insurance to athletes injury while participating in their scholarship sport, decrease demands on the athletes during the athletic season, giving the athletes a bigger say in the decision-making process, give the major conferences more autonomy, etc. Continue Reading->

Early look at Houston Cougars 2014 Schedule

The Houston Cougars finished last season 8-5, and ended the season on a sour note with a loss to the Vanderbilt Commodores in the BBVA Compass bowl. While finishing with a respectable record and bowl game was a good thing for Houston, Head Coach Tony Levine hopes to build on that success last season and have a better record this season. But the American Conference looks to be tougher this season and that could hinder the Cougars season.

Early Look at Texas Tech 2014 schedule

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are coming off a surprising run under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury last season. But this year they will be looking to build on what they did last season and improve. Most people didn’t have them making a bowl game last year and they made the Holiday Bowl.

Early look at Baylor 2014 schedule

The Baylor Bears are coming off one of their most successful seasons in school history, they are the defending Big XII champions, and they played in their first BCS bowl. Needless to say expectations will be very high in 2014 from a fan base who is learning what it is like to have a winning program. But I think the bigger expectations will be from head coach Art Briles because this team looks to have reloaded and wants to prove last year was not a fluke.

Early Look at Texas A&M 2014 schedule

The Texas A&M Aggies will go into the 2014 season with high hopes and high expectations after two full seasons in the Southeastern Conference and some success. But the Aggies are going to have to take on this coming season without, probably the best and most polarizing player to ever wear a Texas A&M uniform.

Art Briles; Changing the Culture at Baylor

Since taking over, things have changed at Baylor under Art Briles

When Art Briles left Houston in 2007 to take over Baylor, everybody said it would be a mistake and career suicide, because nobody had been able to win successfully at Baylor since the 80′s. But Briles didn’t listen to the detractors and he took the Baylor job in 2008. While it wasn’t easy in the early go, he has since turned things around immensely and brought Baylor back into national prominence after a long hiatus, which some thought would never end. Under Art Briles, the Bears have had a run of four straight bowl games, winning back to back games for the first time in 25 years before their shocking loss at the hands of Central Florida in their first BCS game at the Fiesta Bowl. But the loss in the Fiesta Bowl hasn’t slowed down the momentum, because after winning their first outright conference title since 1980 this past year, a lot of Baylor fans are looking for back-to-back Big XII championships this season.

Mustangs Use 2nd Half Run to Whip Tigers

The SMU Mustangs defeated the LSU Tigers on Wednesday night in front of a sold out and crazy Moody Coliseum. While the final score was 80-67, the game wasn’t always in hand for the Mustangs. The Tigers seemed to control the first half and kept the game in their control for the better part of the first half. LSU came out and seemed to find ways to keep LSU against the ropes during the early part of the game. SMU also had a slow start in their first round match up against UC Irvine, but much like the last game, SMU was able to find some rhythm to get back in the game.
