    Anyone going to the Texas Tech HS Indoor Meet this weekend?

    Just thought I would drop in for a little track talk this afternoon and see if anyone was heading to Lubbock this weekend. I will be there with my son on Saturday. He's only running the 800 due to travel and timing of events. If you are around and see me, please say hello.

    2021 UIL Championships Broadcast on Bally's

    I can confirm this is a go. The old Fox Sports Southwest, now Bally's, will be broadcasting the games live. Not only that, but the crew will be in attendance for the first time at AT&T Stadium. Usually, the crew is getting a feed and broadcasting from the studio in Irving. I know this because I...

    There's a rumor flying around that the games will actually be televised live from Jerry World this year on Bally Sports Southwest (the new name for Fox Sports SW). No studio crew. The crew will be on-site for even the six-man games.

    Time For a Comeback!

    I cannot tell you how excited I am that Mike is taking over. This all happened within the last 24-48 hours. I had decided I did not have the time to really coach anyone to get the site up and running. The next day, he sent me an e-mail and by that evening we had an agreement. Years ago (when I...

    Petey Salaiz found dead

    I have no other details or verification, but I was sent an e-mail stating he was found dead in an Austin-area motel Friday. If true, this is extremely sad.

    A Long and Rambling End

    The End This is going to be a long and rambling story. Some of it may be new to many of you, but I just wanted to get it down on paper as I decide to close a chapter in my life.

    Congrats to Vance Jones!!

    I think there's a lot going on out there and nobody except those directly involved know there's some feeling that the optics of the trophy being on the ground are bad. a) Not sure of when the trophy has to be treated like the flag and cannot be on the ground. b) also had heard that something...

    Opponents refuse to play on Colorado team's field

    Opponents refuse to play on Branson’s hardscrabble football field. Now the town needs a(nother) miracle. The athletic field at the far northeast corner of Branson’s town limits had sat mostly idle since the 1980s, when it was last used for baseball and still held memories as home to a 1967 high...
