Today’s View From the Bull Pen
St Patty's Day
To celebrate the return of Patrick Roy, I thought I'd post my three favorite and most requested Roy cartoons from my days at the Rocky Mountain News. I'm excited he's back and I know you guys are too. So here's to St Patty. I'll raise a pint o' Guinness to that!
Have a great a safe memorial day weekend!

Texas Longhorns Archive
So my apologies to all of my fellow Cornhuskers fans. I was wrong. It was Texas. It’s always Texas. And how do I know for sure? I grew up there. I know the way it works.
Well, this certainly changes things. The Big 12 lives to fight another day. Or at least until the Longhorns get a better offer. Never underestimate the power of a Texan or two to broker a deal behind closed doors. That’s pretty much what happened with a lot of wheeling and dealing to get it done. I wouldn’t be surprised if old LBJ himself had something to do with it.
So I’ll set the record straight. Though many will look at Colorado and Nebraska as the rats who ran early, it’s now very clear. It was Texas setting them up as scapegoats. And set them up they did.
It only took one single move to blow up what was once a pretty good athletic conference. The Nebraska Cornhuskers desertion to the Big Ten (with considerable help from Texas, which is, well, ALWAYS about Texas) means the Big 12 is over. Colorado is off to the PAC-10, which I think is long-term a BIG mistake and things as we know them around here will never be quite the same. So much for the Nebraska rivalry, which was, really, no rivalry at all.
I hate to see what is happening to NCAA sports. But it was inevitable. It’s about the MONEY. It’s always about the money. And the smaller schools are the losers.
The Buffs should have gone to the Mountain West. It pains me to say that, but I think the way things work in Boulder make it difficult for the Buffs to compete with the USC’s of the world. (Texas and Nebraska for that matter). Now I want to hear it from you. What do you think of the whole mess? Start typing those comments.
Don’t forget my world Cup cartoon on ESPN.com sometime after the Saturday USA-England match

I spend a few days in Texas and all hell breaks lose in Boulder. Clearly Dan Hawkins is under fire. The question isn't if but when. Rumors have everyone from Mike Shanahan and his son taking over to bringing Knute Rockne back to life. And Hawk hasn't been fired yet. Click to read more. " title="Hawkins feels the Heat" />
