That is the definition of a coverage sack. Jake Waters had more time to throw that than some of us spent in traffic this morning.

Geoff Swaim says third-and-long don't mean bleep.

Mike Finger

Why are they not reviewing that?

Mike Finger

This time it's a Quandre Diggs break-up and a big Jordan Hicks hit that force KSU to kick a FG. UT defense is OK in its own red zone.

Mike Finger

Oklahoma State after those first two drives: "OK, OK, we believe you."

Mike Finger

Steve Edmond, Malcom Brown and Jason Hall all come up big as Texas holds at the goal line. KSU settles for 19-yard FG, leads 3-0.

Mike Finger

Jason Hall takes the field for the first time and limps as he does it.

Perkins is the best offensive lineman Texas had left. This team can't catch a break.

Mercifully, preseason is over. 2-5, bundles of turnovers, un Spurs-y basketball.

Spurs notebook: Old foes recall Nash's class, toughness expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

Pop's message for Spurs in preseason-ending loss at Houston: Playtime is over expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

Haven't talked to one player who thinks Spurs will simply hit a switch come Tuesday. Will probably look a little ragged for first few weeks.

Jeff McDonald

The good news: Spurs' 16 turnovers were a preseason low. Bad: Still contributed to 23 Houston points in what was a one-possession game late.

Jeff McDonald

DGreen said Spurs got message from Pop's TO binge: "We're trying to get better and we're trying to do it faster. We don't have any time left

Jeff McDonald

Pop burned all five of his remaining timeouts in 3Q. Why? "Take care of some mistakes now. It will save me some film later."

Jeff McDonald

If you're freaking out over preseason, calm down. But ... until Spurs get Leonard and then Splitter back, it's going to be dicey.

Jeff McDonald

More Duncan, taking the long view: "We'll show up for the first game and we'll figure it out, and we'll have 81 after that."

Jeff McDonald

Duncan, meanwhile, kind of shrugged that off. "We haven't played well, but it's preseason. We'll hopefully chalk it up to that."

Jeff McDonald

Pop on Spurs' just-completed preseason: "We look very poor. We look like we're not very interested."

Jeff McDonald

At 2-5, the Spurs post worst preseason record since going 2-7 in 2005-06. That, too, came on heels of a championship season.

Jeff McDonald

Pop's assessment of Spurs' preseason: "Poor ... We don't look very interested."

Jeff McDonald

Isaiah Canaan is my new favorite player. There will be no OT. Let's move on to the games that count.

Jeff McDonald

I fear all this spirited Spurs rally has accomplished is to put overtime on the table. Nobody wants that.

Jeff McDonald

Pop also coaching refs. Tells Zach Zarba: "That's a travel. The signal's like this." And shows him.

Jeff McDonald

Pop used all his timeouts in the third quarter so Spurs having to give fouls in order to make substitutions. Belinelli coming in for Parker.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs within 84-80 after pair of Parker free throws.

Mike Finger

Your national prestige is growing, @valeroalamobowl RT @slmandel: The pa announcer here just introduced ... tmi.me/1ePjbd

Jeff McDonald

Duncan's probably done: 11 points, 10 reb, 4 of 12 in 25 minutes. Parker and Ginobili staying in.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs' regulars have deficit cut to 81-74, playing mostly against Houston deep bench guys. 5:55 to go.

Jeff McDonald

Duncan and Parker on the floor to start the fourth

Jeff McDonald

That's five Popovich timeouts here in the third quarter. Good thing we tipped off half an hour early.

Mike Monroe

Not sure that Jeff Ayres-on-James Harden defensive matchup works for #Spurs

Jeff McDonald

For those of you still counting, Ginobili is 2 of 10 tonight. Makes him 8 of 40 for the preseason.

Jeff McDonald

Yep, Pop's using all his timeouts tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Pop called a timeout there and was pretty animated. Preseason's almost over, I think.

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli screwed up something on defense. Pop pulled him two minutes in and chewed him out all the way to his seat.

Mike Finger

"You were here when we clinched!" he says, referring to the Royals. "You must be good luck!" Guess he doesn't know which program I cover.

Jeff McDonald

The Spurs assisted on all but one of their first-half baskets. Unfortunately, that's 10 assists on only 11 field goals.

Mike Finger

There are few honors quite as sad as being recognized as a regular by the barkeep at an airport Marriott.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs not defending poorly, but manage zero field goals over final 6:29 of first half. Trail 49-32 at break.

Jeff McDonald

Dwight Howard is out, James Harden is 2 for 9 and the Spurs are down by 13.

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili still can't throw it in the ocean, but he's getting where he wants to go on the court so far. Good sign.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs trail 24-19 after 1Q, mostly because of (stop me if you've heard this one) turnovers. They've got 7, for 11 Rockets' points.

Mike Monroe

It will be interesting to see how much Popovich plays vets in 1st half vs. #Rockets; Outcome immaterial; execution, rhythm matter #Spurs

Jeff McDonald

Starting to wonder if NBA officials simply think Matt Bonner's name is actually "Loose Ball Foul."

Jeff McDonald

Last pretend game underway!

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Belinelli, Green, Duncan, Bonner. Rockets: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Jones, Tarik Black.

Paul Garcia

Edwin was a player the Spurs reportedly worked out over the summer.

Write up by @JeffGarciaPS on Spurs' new players: Spurs sign Fuquan Edwin, Robert Vaden bit.ly/1w1abou

Jeff McDonald

If I'm not mistaken, this game is on NBA TV. Spurs fans might actually get to watch one of these pretend games.

Jeff McDonald

So the Spurs signed a couple D-League types at the tail end of preseason. Assuming the point is to grab their D-League rights for Austin.

Paul Garcia

Both players are forwards, likely just preseason deals.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs announced the team has signed Fuquan Edwin and Robert Vaden.

Jeff McDonald

What did Nash mean to Canadian hoops? Joseph: "He's epic. He's the godfather. He was an inspiration to a lot of people, myself included."

Jeff McDonald

Cory Joseph spent time over the summer training with Steve Nash in Canada. Said Nash looked "amazing" in those workouts.

As an aside, how would different would D'Antoni's career be viewed if Suns had broken through vs. Spurs one of those years?

Jeff McDonald

Pop's not blowing smoke when he said some of those epic Spurs-Suns battles in the '00s could have gone the other way.

Jeff McDonald

More Pop on Nash: "He's got that little baby face, but he was a heck of a competitor. He won the right way and lost the right way."

Jeff McDonald

Pop on Nash: Worked himself into being a great player. He didn't start out that way. Ended up being one of the best guards we've ever seen.

Jeff McDonald

Asked Pop to reflect on Steve Nash's career. He talked uninterrupted for nearly two full minutes. Spurs as org have ultimate respect for him
