And why the love for UT?
It's not a matter of if, but merely when. The Big 12 is kaput. When the Board of Regents at OU and Texas yesterday empowered their respective school presidents (David Boren and Williams Powers) to explore new conference affiliations, it officially signaled the beginning of the end for the I ...

Jealous and impotent until the bitter end, the Aggies try to flee for the SEC.
10. For a couple of anxious minutes last Friday the Cowboys thought they'd signed Nnamdi Asomugha. Then on Monday for a curious second we thought they'd acquired Bears' receiver/returner Devin Hester. Huh is right. DallasCowboys.com sent out a text/Tweet yesterday announcing "Cowboys Si ... More >>
Well, are you ready for some?Arrived in San Antonio this morning and will attend owner Jerry Jones' State of the Franchise press conference at 3 p.m. in The Alamodome. (After an off-season of relative silence and so many topics to cover, this baby could go 90 minutes.) In the post-lockout ... More >>
Lyle Leong, the newest CowboyWith their first practice in San Antonio's Alamodome in about 48 hours, the Cowboys are scrambling to piece together a roster. The first step in that process is signing undrafted free agents, which can begin today per the post-lockout NFL rules. Who ... More >>
Who loans two hundred grand to a college kid from a poor family? There's just a whole lot about the Dez Bryant stories that does not smell right. Dallas Cowboys receiver Bryant is being sued for the better part of a million bucks he borrowed to buy jewelry and sports tickets. The people suin ... More >>
Dez Bryant's customized pendant, part of the stuff he allegedly hasn't paid forLying to the NCAA while at Oklahoma State. Bucking NFL tradition and not carrying Roy Williams' shoulder pads. Blaming the media. Cutting in line at The Apple Store. Being, according to Dallas police, invol ... More >>
Surprised to see Bryant on the list? You shouldn't be.Is it time for Jerry Jones to step aside as general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, or do the three Super Bowl wins under his tenure validate his decision to remain in that role? The debate will continue until Jones either hands over the keys t ... More >>

Dex BryantRoy Williams can't carry Dez Bryant's jock, so why should the Dallas Cowboys' rookie receiver carry the veteran's pads? Because he's a rookie, that's why. Troy Aikman baked cookies and took them on the team plane. As a Texas Rangers' rookie, Jarrod Saltalamacchia wore a diaper on a ... More >>

We'll get to the full pre-season predictions after the jump, but in picking OU over Texas in the South apparently the Big 12 media thinks Landry Jones will be a bett ... More >>
I grew up with Drew Pearson, covered Michael Irvin and have the highest hopes for Dez Bryant. But should the Cowboys' rookie receiver from Oklahoma State be allowed to wear the sacred No. 88? The Cowboys revere uniform numbers, but they don't retire them. Should they? You don't see No. 8 or ... More >>
10. As I wrote yesterday afternoon, the Cowboys talked to the Miami Dolphins about trading up. And Texas safety Earl Thomas was indeed one of their three targets in Thursday's NFL Draft. The others: Idaho offensive lineman Mike Iupati and Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant. No matter which o ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Cowboys fans rejoice. First of all you have Dez Bryant. Secondly, you're not the Denver Broncos.

Jason Witten? Check. Miles Austin? Check. Patrick Crayton? Yeah, okay, check. Roy Williams? Hmm. Dez Bryant? Interesting. Entering next month's NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys have needs. At safety. At kicker. At offensive tackle. And, yes, at receiver. But are the concerns there enough to take ... More >>
A month from tonight - that's right, tonight - the NFL Draft will commence in prime for the first time. Currently with the 27th overall pick, what will your Dallas Cowboys do? A safety?

At least they saved money on a new logo.For the first Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium it's going to be ... Oklahoma State vs. Mississippi. Wait, haven't we seen Ole Miss in the Cotton Bowl recently? Like, um, last January?
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 >>
