Golden: Foles could join another Westlake QB as a Super Bowl champ
 Westlake’s Nick Foles didn’t open this latest NFL season with these sort of expectations. He was just happy to be a backup, playing his role behind Eagles sophomore starter Carson Wentz. I guess you can say things have changed for the 28-year-old, who seriously considered retiring after being released by the Los Angeles Rams in...

Golden: Texas is producing top college talent — for out-of-state schools
 No state produces as much football talent as Texas. So why are Texas universities, most notably UT, not among the current national elite? Poor coaching? Superior recruiting outside the state?

Golden’s nuggets: Briles saying the right thing but to wrong audience
 Former Baylor coach Art Briles should speak publicly about the sexual assault scandal that brought down his program, but it should not come in a room full of football coaches eager to shake his hand and slap him on the back.

Golden: Mo Bamba should embrace the role of cleaning up the garbage for Texas basketball
 Mo Bamba will be great one day, but it won’t be at Texas. For now, the Horns could really use his services in a role that’s much needed on offense. Garbage man. Before you type up that letter to the editor demanding that I be sent to the nearest car wash, be advised that “garbage man”

Golden: Tommy Nobis may have left us, but the memories of No. 60 on, off the field won’t
