Bohls: Texas’ defense, running game are planting the seeds for the future
 MORGANTOWN, W.V. — The checklist was on overdrive for an aspiring Longhorns football team as a chilly, rain-drenched Saturday

MORGANTOWN, W.V. — The checklist was on overdrive for an aspiring Longhorns football team as a chilly, rain-drenched Saturday in the West Virginia mountains gave way to royal blue skies at dusk.

Take Ten: Bohls, Golden tackle college football’s big Week 12 questions
 American-Statesman columnists Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden address 10 hot-button topics about Texas, the Big 12 and national college football: 1. How should Texas use its quarterbacks in these final two games? Bohls: However, whenever and whoever will give the Longhorns the best chance to win and get to a bowl game. If that means 10 snaps...

Bohls: Texas’ Dylan Osetkowski is making a name — or names — for himself
 By now, he’s already heard it all. But the rugged junior forward for the Texas basketball team figures he’s going to hear plenty more, too. Because of his all-around game. Because of his just out-of-the-woods looks. Because of his tough style of play. That’s OK. Tulane transfer Dylan Osetkowski’s already become a crowd...

Bohls: Smart favors judicious reliance on one-and-done players
 While I gotcha, here are nine things and one crazy prediction: 1. Shaka Smart doesn’t want one-and-dones. Check that. He doesn’t want all one-and-dones. He’ll take some. He just doesn’t want a roster full of them. The third-year Texas basketball coach has had one so far in center Jarrett Allen, who stayed one season...

Bohls: Canes top my AP Top 25 ballot

Posted: 7 days ago

We ask for chaos. We get chaos. As many as four of the college football teams ranked among my top nine and seven of my top 17 fell on Saturday, several of them in blowouts. And I’ve got the Canes No. 1. My top four are Miami, Alabama, Oklahoma and Clemson with Auburn leapfrogging a bunch of teams to rise to No. 6. I put...
Bohls: Texas’ future includes a possible bowl, but definitely some more work
 I smell the Cactus Bowl. Or is it the Liberty Bowl? Texas Bowl? Hard to tell because all those minor bowls look and taste and smell alike, but the 5-5 Texas football team inched ever closer
            to qualifying for its first bowl game in three years even though it’s beaten just one team with a winning record (6-4 Iowa

Bohls: As Memorial Field goes dark, this Duck flies back in time
 Admittedly, the green letter jacket with the No. 30 patch on the left shoulder is a little snug. OK, I lied. It barely fits at all. But putting it on still triggers a flood of warm memories and contented smiles from an adolescence well spent, a big part of it centered around my Friday night heights. And even some lows. We said goodbye to...

Bohls: Three SEC teams and the Irish in this year’s CFP, anyone?
 While I got ya, here are nine things and one crazy prediction: 1. Here’s a crazy scenario that could happen: Three SEC teams and Notre Dame in the College Football Playoff. Nuts? Maybe not so much. That would create such a firestorm of protest from the other four Power 5 conferences that we’d probably see an instant outcry for...

Bohls: Bowl game for Texas would be a (modest) improvement
 The question was straightforward. The answer? Uh, not so much. So, Tom Herman, if your struggling Texas Longhorns play well enough to qualify for a bowl game — and that’s no longer a given
            in these hard times — is that enough to consider your first season in Austin a success or is it already a huge disappointment?...

Bohls: For better or for worse, the Texans are stuck with Savage
 The crowd went wild. An announced paid audience of 71,709 at NRG Stadium for the Colts-Texans game went nuts during a timeout early in Sunday’s game, rising to their feet, baring their lungs and showering praise over their hometown favorite sons. The, uh, Astros were in the house. And yes pretty much the largest ovation of the day was...

Bohls: Notre Dame in my top 4; Big Ten falters

Posted: 14 days ago

It was definitely Shakeup Saturday. Seven of the teams ranked in the top 18 on my last week’s Associated Press college football ballot fell, but then four of them were playing teams I’d ranked higher. I’ve bumped Notre Dame up from ninth to fourth and probably should have had the Irish higher than I did. They&rsquo...
Bohls: Fading A&M, faltering Sumlin need to part ways
 On a gorgeous, cloudy fall afternoon, Texas A&M’s mystifying team played dominant football for the better part of a half against one of the league’s best teams before a multitude of mistakes and a bunch of big plays doomed the Aggies to yet another resounding defeat. At home, no less. Not that the locale has seemed to make much...

Bohls: The Astros made history — you wanna bet against them in 2018?
 You might have missed it among all the majestic home runs and masterful pitching and marriage proposals and crowd shots of Sandy Koufax, but Houston pulled off a triple play in the World Series. It might not show up in any of the box scores, but that’s how the Astros won their first major league championship in 56 seasons — with...

Bohls: Texas has All-American candidates and a top defense
 While I got ya, here are nine things and one crazy prediction: 1. Would it be possible for a 4-4 football team to have three All-Americans? Probably not. As chairman of the Football Writers Association of America’s All-America panel, I know how hard it is to convince voters of the worth of players off a potential losing team or a 6-6...

Bohls: Finally, there are signs of real life coming from the Texas offense
 Yes, it was Baylor. With that qualifier out of the way, let us at least concede that the much-maligned Texas offense has shown signs of life. There is a pulse. And that, my friends, is a noticeable improvement and yet another measuring stick for a program trying to field a complete
            team, especially in light of this week&rsquo...

Bohls: Astros outlast Dodgers in game for ages

Posted: 20 days ago

The roars that cascaded around jam-packed Minute Maid Park for more than five hours may have subsided by now, but the memories of the biggest win in franchise history will undoubtedly linger. And just maybe so will Houston’s lead in this World Series. In one of the wildest, wackiest and most compelling Fall Classic games ever, the Houston...
