College football's first playoff championship game may be coming to the Cotton Bowl. No, not the old, art-deco Cotton Bowl in Fair Park but the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, which has freed itself from the geographical shackles implied by its name and moved to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. ESPN, citing ... More >>
Jealous and impotent until the bitter end, the Aggies try to flee for the SEC.
And a little movie about the Mustangs' downfall isn't hurting either.
As I watched Mitch Moreland's gargantuan, 472-foot homer sail into the soon-to-be stormy June night, I was reminded that the Rangers-Astros' fight should be stopped on account of inhumane bludgeonry. Moreland's blast -- tied for third-longest in baseball this season -- capped an 8-3 Texas c ... More >>
10. Cam Newton = Overrated. I take it back. He ain't better than Vince Young was at Texas. 9. Sure he's corny at times, but I love me some "Big Game" Brent Musburger. 8. Props to Auburn coach Gene Chizik for running a play to wind the clock down and set up a walk-off 19-yard field goal by We ... More >>
Cam can. And will.A year ago I was correctly predicting Alabama over Texas in college football's national championship game. In tonight's Oregon-Auburn clash my heart says Ducks but my head says no way the Tigers don't prevail. Why? 10. Oregon usually wins with its spee ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *If Bill Parcells fit too snug and Wade Phillips was a size too loose, Jason Garrett fits juuuuust right. *Maybe I'm naive and gullible and biased in favor of Garrett, but until otherwise I'm ... More >>
So a bunch of us are sitting around on New Year's Day laughing at the empty seats at the Ticket City Bowl, gulping venison chili and combating our headaches with straight up hair o' the dawg. Suddenly, invited to our football-watching gala by a mutual friend, the Big Ten Buffoons show up. Th ... More >>
Your 2005 Heisman Trophy winner?Reggie Bush is a liar. Should Vince Young be a Heisman winner? That's the contention of Texas coach Mack Brown, who says - if - the Heisman Trophy Trust yanks back its 2005 award from the Southern Cal running back it should be handed over to former Longhorns ...

Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *This year's Super Bowl halftime entertainment is The Who. What the what? Springsteen. The Who. Next year at SB XLV in Arlington: Lawrence Welk? Maybe I'm just bothered that 1) The Who sucks. 2)The ... More >>
Dear Oklahoma, I am indeed a bitch. Sincerely, Karma Last year the Oklahoma Sooners were whipped by the Texas Longhorns in their annual mid-October showdown in the Cotton Bowl. Both teams lost one game all season, yet somehow - inexplicably - it was Oklahoma, through a discombobulated nation ... More >>
Right is wrong and left is ... right? Seems to be. It's not exactly a bass-ackward revolution, but left-handers are doing okay for themselves in sports these days. Or are they? The idea struck me last week when I saw highlights of college quarterbacks Josh Heupel and Matt Leinart winning BCS Nationa ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *I got $1 for the first person who can show me - like Tony Romo did last week - any time that Terrell Owens has ever uttered the phrase: "This one's on me." Owens has every right to be jealous of Romo and ... More >>
I don't love Texas. I don't hate Oklahoma. But what transpired yesterday in the Big 12 is absolute bullshit. I know life ain't fair, but college football should be. Or at least it should use common sense trying. Let me apologize to Texas. I posted some of the bes ... More >>
A taller, more liberal Avery Johnson? Obama vs. McCain? Let’s see, McCain is a Phoenix Suns fan who played junior varsity football in high school and boxed in the Navy. Eh. Obama is a White Sox fan who threw out the first pitch in Chicago before Game 2 of the ’05 ALCS. He led Occiden ... More >>
Wonder if SMU AD Steve Orsini has an extra $400k laying around. Just in case. SMU football coach June Jones is going back to Hawaii. Relax. It’s just so he can avoid re-paying his former employer a cool $400,000. The University of Hawaii thinks Jones owes it the cash – half his annual p ... More >>
