Really eager to see what Coach Carlisle does with that team.

Paul Garcia

On paper, Mavs have an interesting group: Starters: Nelson, Ellis, Parsons, Dirk, Chandler. Bench: Felton, Harris, Aminu, Jefferson, Wright.

UNT might win CUSA. Maybe UT's best Week 1 foe since NC State in '99. RT @JonJon81: facing a team like UNT, I wouldn't call that optimistic.

Mike Finger

I mean, who knows? But seems to me Texas is the kind of team that can dominate games and win them 27-10.

Mike Finger

Least surprising development of the day is the 26.5-point Texas-UNT spread moving to 23.5 on some sites. This isn't a pile-it-on team.

Solid job by Rudy Gay, got called in last minute for Team USA and ends up making the final roster.

Paul Garcia

Yup, Parsons also didn't make US roster. RT @miggyv1203: @Paul Garcia and chandler parsons

So it looks like Damian Lillard, Kyle Korver, and Gordon Hayward were cut from the roster for USA that now stands at 12.

Mike Finger

Memphis pays Josh Pastner more than that. Nothing against Memphis or Josh Pastner, but come on. It's not like Barnes is stealing.

Mike Finger

That's 11th in the country. Based on his overall track record at UT, that's fair, I reckon. RT @TShakCFP: Barnes at $2.5m is absurd.

Mike Finger

Should also note that neither Barnes nor Garrido received new raises. Just the previously scheduled annual bumps.

Mike Finger

As long as it costs UT less than a year's pay to get out of the deal, the length of the extension is for show as much as anything.

Mike Finger

No new buyout figures were released. Keep in mind Mack Brown was extended to 2020 after the 2011 season. It's a recruiting thing.

Mike Finger

Texas regents approve contract extensions for Rick Barnes (at $2.5M per year) through 2019 and for Augie Garrido ($1.04M) through 2017.

I reckon they should. So Templin and Haines are non-special-teams trailblazers. RT @justinwells2424: @Mike Finger do kickers count?

Jeff McDonald

Turned out to be @Mike Monroe with low blood sugar. MT @Mike Finger "We saw a bald eagle catch a fish." -- @kbohls, keeping room riveted

Mike Finger

That's about as high-profile as walk-ons got. RT @jasondjarrett: Does Cade McRary count?

Mike Finger

Strong says Templin and Haines will play next week. Can't remember Mack using an unrecruited, non-military walk-on in 16 years.

Paul Garcia

Numbers supported idea that Kawhi Leonard & Danny Green were one of the best perimeter duo's defensively last season: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Mike Finger

If Shipley's out, UT's top WR (Marcus Johnson) has 22 career catches. John Harris, walk-on Ty Templin, Jacorey Warrick are other options.

Paul Garcia

Then I ranked where each team's duo ended up ranking in each chart & found 6/8 correlations: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/… http://t.co/H39j7Q27JZ

Strong says Jaxon Shipley (hamstring) still isn't getting any practice reps.

Yes, John's his dad. Dylan is a walk-on safety from Lago Vista. RT @Aggie_Mark: Is Haines a legacy? Think there was a John that was a DT.

Strong: "Tyrone (Swoopes) is the clear No. 2 quarterback."

Mike Finger

Dez Harrison, who's been working at that spot, is suspended for at least the opener. Other options are Hutchins, James.

Mike Finger

On the starting OL, Strong says Espinosa (C), Flowers and Perkins (G) and Estelle (T) have spots. Other T spot up for grabs.

Mike Finger

Strong confirms backup OL Rami Hammad has left the program. "We wish him the best."

Mike Finger

Strong says he isn't sure if Jaxon Shipley will be full-strength for the season opener.

Mike Finger

Strong names 10 starters on defense, all the ones you've heard, with Hall and Haines fighting for last safety spot.
