Duck For Cover

Sure they'll score tons of points, but are you convinced?

The Cowboys are having a mini-camp. Terrell Owens is making headlines. And, a sure sign that football season has indeed arrived in the middle of the June, this morning I got my grubby little hands on Dave Campbell’s 2008 Texas Football.

On the “Best in Texas” cover: Would you believe, Texas Tech? Yep. Coach Mike Leach, flanked by quarterback Graham Harrell and Dallas product/All-American receiver Michael Crabtree. (Priceless pic on page 17 of the players flashing Tech’s “Guns Up!” hand sign, while the indifferent Leach sports his gun kinda half-ass sideways.)

The cover story, written by Dallas’ Only Daily columnist Kevin Sherrington, picks Tech to win the Big 12.

Other notable forecasts: West Virginia’s Pat White to win the Heisman, Georgia to take the national championship and Euless Trinity to win the 5A high-school title.

Fall isn't exactly in the air, but it did just get a smidge cooler. -- Richie Whitt
