Eye on Art!: Texas' statement on Longhorn Network

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Eye on Art! is a semi-regular feature of the Eye on College Football blog. You've heard the expression "a picture is worth 1,000 words?" Well pictures drawn in MS Paint are worth more like 500 words, but 500 should be good enough.

On Thursday the Austin American-Statesman's Kirk Bohls tweeted that the Longhorn Network -- aka SCOURGE OF THE BIG 12 -- will be showing two Big 12 games this season according to ESPN VP Burke Magnus. Which will cause some problems considering that the network originally said that it'd be showing only one Big 12 game a season.

Then, to make matters worse, Bohls later tweeted that The Longhorn Network will also be showing highlights of high school games, which should also go over really well with the rest of the Big 12 conference.

Concerned about the impact this news could have on the Big 12, Texas released a statement on Thursday in an attempt to smooth things over.

Yes, I'd say they are.

Texas Tech on the hunt for the football

Posted by Tom Fornelli

I couldn't help but read this story from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal and not have some fun with it. While it's a philosophy that is in play just about everywhere, the phrasing begged for mocking. 
“Hunt together, kill together” is the new motto of the Texas Tech defense.

That’s the phrase the defense used to break from huddles Sunday, and cornerback Jarvis Phillips summed up its meaning for the media following practice.

“Hunt together, you know, just get to the ball,” Phillips said, “and kill together, I guess try to hurt ’em.”

The maxim’s origin can be traced to new defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow, who stresses accountability from his defense.

“One of the things we’re going to talk about all the time is hunting together as a unit,” Glasgow said. “We’ve got to have 11 guys that are running to the football as fast as they can and we’ve got to play smart as a defensive unit.”
Happy hunting, fellas.

Life as a Mississippi State fan

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Urban Meyer stepping down at Florida does not just affect the Gators football program.  No, it can be felt throughout the SEC, specifically at a school like Mississippi State.  Though it's still early in the process, you can bet that former Florida coordinator and current Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen's name will be coming up as a replacement for Meyer in Gainesville.

Which is just the latest twist in the roller coaster ride that Mississippi State fans have been on for the last few weeks.  Now, I could sum it all up in words, but words are boring.  So instead I present to you "Life As A Mississippi State Fan" in MS Paint.  Because pictures are worth a thousand words, so get ready for like 1,400 more words.
