HoopsHype San Antonio Spurs twitter
You guys didn't disappoint.
Nothing like 17-year-old references to wow that Twitter crowd. Next, we'll discuss the music of Soul Asylum.
Should college football writers be offended that the Rose Bowl mailed us what appears to be a promotional washcloth?
New Spurs court reminiscent of Spinal Tap's Smell the Glove. "How much more black could it get? And the answer is none...more black."
This summer we've lost three wonderful people who covered sports in Texas, all under age 45. Durrett, Duncan, Dugger. Each will be missed.
Loving this E:60 on @cutondime25 !! Awesome story.
Texas OC Shawn Watson says Daje Johnson won't play vs. UCLA. Says Shipley is "day-to-day."
Positions of players projected to start for Texas on offense who are now injured or suspended: QB. WR1. WR2. C. LT. RT.
If Shipley doesn't play and Daje Johnson isn't reinstated, that means Texas' offense is without 6 of its 11 projected preseason starters.
Texas says WR Jaxon Shipley is questionable for UCLA game after suffering a head injury last week.
The stuff on Anthony Smith's timeline from four hours ago is stunning. I won't retweet it, but wow.
Gustavo Ayon will not be a Spur next season. The dream is over.
NBA salary cap was $3.6 million when implemented in 84-85, less than Danny Green or Matt Bonner made last season.
Amazing to see this new TV money being bandied about while re-reading Breaks of the Game. Needless to say, the NBA's come a long, long way.
There's NO room in sports for domestic violence so I understand what the league did, but its sad for me to see the mans career end like this
"We will stand by Ray Rice through this difficult situation." *video releases* "LOLOLOL, nah. Just kidding. Screw that guy."
Players said they just didn't realize that was allowed. Diggs: "You don't want to rip it down and be in the pit with coach Moorer."
Diggs: "I'm sick of coming up here. I just want to eat Pluckers and leave."
Still hurt by today's revelation that one of our favorite players to interview does not attend the media luncheon for us, but for the food.
Truly Bad News: Marvin Barnes dead at age 62; RIP
Diggs: "I wasn't bothered by what coach Strong said. I was bothered that guys weren't ready."
Diggs: "I really don't understand how you can let your teammates down like that."
Diggs: "You have to grow up at some point. I guess some guys aren't ready to grow up yet."
RIP Bad News Barnes. May you never lose your Rolls in the great beyond.
As expected, ornery (in a good way) Quandre Diggs is back: "We don't have enough guys who will not accept losing."
Malcolm Brown on Strong wanting players to tear down signs: "You can't have guys just putting on a show. You have to be sincere about it."
That kind of sums up the dilemma facing Texas' offense. No real idea what it can be counted on to do well.
Tyrone Swoopes says he still feels more comfortable running than he does throwing. Malcolm Brown says Swoopes' biggest strength is his arm.
Strong: "The coaches, we're accountable, too. I'm just eaten up inside by what happened. ... But that honeymoon? Not sure I had one."
Strong: "A honeymoon -- I don't know if I ever had one."
We've reached the point of this presser where the questions are longer than the answers.
I asked Strong if any starting jobs are up for grabs: "No, I'm not sure there's anybody I could fill in. You got any suggestions?"
Strong on his players: "You'd like for one to stand up and say enough is enough."
Oh no. Charlie Strong uses the Mack Brown line, "We can't let this loss beat us twice."
Strong on suspensions: "There's no committee. There's no one I have to appeal to. I make the decision."
Strong says there's no timeline on suspensions of Estelle and Harrison. No amount of games determined yet.
Strong: "Tyrone's our quarterback, and he's going to be our quarterback. We're going to go with him."
Regarding last year's BYU loss, Strong told his players: "We're taking this game more personal than you are."
FWIW, it's definitely possible to A) love watching the NFL and B) dislike how poorly they're handling the Ray Rice situation.
The problem with the "they weren't ready to play" explanation, though, is they looked fine in the first half.
Strong said "I'm still mad at myself" for not taking players off the field before the game and getting them refocused.
Charlie Strong on convincing players to do what he asks: "We're not going to become them. They're going to become us."
Get 'em, Boogie
Hey, I got one of those blue check mark thingys on my account. Guess Twitter knows you're the real deal when you make enough Romo jokes.
It would just make too much sense for the Phoenix Suns to have both the Morris and Dragic brothers on the same team in an NBA season.
Ty Lawson wins all of the awards. http://t.co/kxdKvG4XGF
Bora Brasil!!! Agora a Servia!! Vamooo!!!!
All of these people who have it figured out are going to get rich this week, and Vegas is going broke. Yessir.
If you're looking for a rational reason why Texas stays close, it's the UT DL's huge edge over UCLA's OL. The problem is everywhere else.
