The Aggies, struggling to remain relevant in the NCAA Tournament picture, were mired in a three-game losing streak. The perfect remedy in desperate times: Texas.
A&M did what it has done for the last five home games against the Longhorns, mixing urgency and energy into an 81-66 victory
“We know for a fact … it happens every year. They played harder against us than anybody they play,” Texas coach Rick Barnes said. “And that’s a fact. I’ve got the tapes to prove it.
“I told my guys that if we don’t play as hard as we can play, it’s a big mistake on our part. And we didn’t.”
The daughter of former Iowa football player and Iowa State football coach Dan McCarney was arrested for allegedly trying to punch and kick a police officer during a weekend incident in which she reportedly asked police, “Do you know who my dad is?” and informed them that she knew her family’s fame and wealth would lead to charges being dropped.
Jillian McCarney now faces up to a year in prison for assault on a police officer.
The Denver Broncos are a team going through changes. And if you compare the Denver Broncos to the Dallas Cowboys even on paper you can tell the Broncos are going to be a better team in 2009 than the Cowboys just by what is going on today. As you may remember the Broncos fired long-time coach Mike Shanahan after last years choke job of losing 4 games in a row to miss the playoffs. Since then the Broncos owner, Pat Bowlen, didn’t try to be the star of the show, he promoted his general manager, and hired a new coach, and is going to let them run the team!
New England Patriots Offensive Coordinator Josh NcDaniels 32, replaced Shanahan as Denver’s coach last month and Xanders, 37, was promoted to replace Shanahan as chief personnel man Thursday, not long after the Rams showed an interest in luring him to St. Louis
Both men report directly to Bowlen. See how easy that can work Jerry?
