    The football team at Prime Prep Academy, Deion Sanders' charter school, has been struggling to find opponents after a UIL committee barred it from competing against district opponents.That pretty much wiped out their schedule, save for a game against Parish Episcopal at which they endured a 50-6 she ...

    Texas Attorney General Goes After Okie Payday Lending Firm Pretending to Be Dallas County

    ​Why, lookie there -- former Dallas Cowboys head coach Barry Switzer's the face of Federal Cash Advance. Makes sense: The payday lender's Oklahoma-based. But, see, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott doesn't take to kindly to the way it runs its bidness down here. Says the AG in a lawsuit filed tod ... More >>

    ​The defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys were 2-3 under Barry Switzer and on their way to a playoff loss to the Carolina Panthers.

    The Top 5 Best Games in the History of Texas-OU

    ​Here's hoping that Saturday's Texas-OU game at the Cotton Bowl is better than last year's yawny 16-13 Longhorns' victory. The memorable 45-35 game in 2008 was a little more like it. Still, with pedestrian quarterbacks Garrett Gilbert and Landry Jones and what I think are two medioc ... More >>

    The Dallas Cowboys: Seven Coaches and a Baby

    ​In this week's Dallas Observer column in which I surmise that Wade Phillips is entering his last season - win, lose or drawl - I tell the story of riding up a training camp elevator with the Dallas Cowboys' head coach. Sounds riveting, I know. But wait, there's more! Watching Wade ... More >>

    As Bud Shrake Once Wrote, "Birth is Real, Death is Real, and All Between is a Game."

    Edwin "Bud" Shrake, the Fort Worth native and former Dallas Times Herald and Dallas Morning News sportswriter, died this morning in Austin at the age of 77. He wrote a lot of essential books, including the best-selling sports tome of all time, but longtime fans will fondly recall his Willie Nelson a ... More >>

    A Giant Myth

    Rocky’s trainer, ol’ Mick, alluded to it when he warned his love-struck boxer, “Women weaken legs!” I half-ass joked about it when I wrote, “It just doesn’t feel right.” But up in New York, the very unbiased (wink) media is latching on to Tony Romo’s weekend jaunt to Mexico with Jess ...

    Aw, Hell -- Barry Switzer Takes His Damn Act to XM Satellite Radio

    At last, a reason to get XM Satellite Radio. Beginning one week from today, former Dallas Cowboys head coach Barry Switzer -- who, apparently, was some kind of college coach? -- will join XM Sports Nation This Morning as an analyst and predictor man every weekday from 5:30 to 7 a.m. local time.

    Pity Parcells

    Bill Parcells may be an asshole, but he's a complicated, self-torturing and very likely depressed asshole. Which has to count for something. Countless times--well, just three, actually--Richie Whitt's called Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells an "asshole" on Unfair Park. Got no problem with that. Fro ... More >>

    You get the sense from the new Sports Illustrated that Jerry Jones wanted T.O. to B.L.O.W. when he signed him as a Cowboy. As expected, all things considered, the new issue of Sports Illustrated has a feature about the Dallas Cowboys' week that was; something to do with T.O.'s O.D. one week ago toda ... More >>

    Really, how can a team that employed Chan Gailey be worth more than a billion dollars? Does not seem right. Jerry Jones bought the Dallas Cowboys for $150 million in 1989; today, his team's worth $1.2 billion, despite the fact Chan Gailey, Dave Campo and Barry Switzer have been head coaches here dur ...

    So, where was he? Bill Parcells, so we're told, is the only guy on the planet capable of handling Terrell Owens. The infallible Tuna is the main reason the Cowboys think their T.O. experiment will work when 31 other teams are convinced it won't. But on Saturday, at Owens' introductory press conferen ...
