Teammate’s view: Jefferson is NFL-ready

My personal opinion playing football with Malik Jefferson and watching him grow this year, I think he is fit to play in the NFL.

Malik is one of the hardest working players on and off the field. I believe that he will be a great addition to any NFL team and will have a positive impact on the organization. I hope the best for Malik and that he makes the best decision for him and his family.

Charitable idea: UT men vs. UT women

So, here’s an idea for a UT charitable fundraiser: The UT athletic department picks a local and/or state charity (charities). Then it schedules a game between the UT men’s and women’s basketball teams. All profits go to the charity (or charities). They’d sell out the Erwin Center.

Likely reason it won’t ever happen? The men are afraid they’d be beaten by the women. Muscle vs. finesse. Inside power vs. outside shooting. Up-and-coming men’s team vs. ranked women’s team. From the same school.

Would you love to see this? I would! I’d buy tickets! And so would 16,000 other people.

Forget UT and A&M playing football again. Let’s get the Lady Longhorns playing the Longhorn men. Would this be fun or what?
