Golden: Don’t blow off the Pro Football Hall of Fame, T.O.
 Hey, T.O. It’s OK to be mad but you should show up for your Hall of Fame induction. Please don’t deprive us of what would have been the most self-involved acceptance speech since Michael Jordan called out Bryon Russell, his three kids and the high school basketball coach who left him off the varsity as a 10th grader. Terrell Owens...

Golden’s Nuggets: The Spurs can’t risk getting zero for Kawhi Leonard
 Kawhi Leonard is so hell-bent on not playing in San Antonio that he could sit out the 2019 season if he doesn’t get traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. That’s the sense among some NBA executives, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said Sunday night. If so, that means Leonard would play nine fewer games in 2019 than he played this past...

Golden: Why the Spurs won’t trade Kawhi Leonard (to the Lakers, anyway)
 Kawhi Leonard wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. And in a totally unrelated note, I would love for Netflix to move up the release dates for “Orange is the New Black” and “Ozark.” We don’t always get what we want. In Leonard’s case, he’s asking a team that he disrespected to send him to the...

Golden’s nuggets: A true Texas revival not complete without football
 In sports, winning is cyclical — not just for teams, but entire athletic departments. Maybe, just maybe, Texas is on the way back to the top. Our weekend review of the past school year revealed that the 20 varsity programs on campus all made it to the postseason, which has to give hope to Longhorn Nation that greatness will soon return...

Golden: Parker Joe Robinson cleans up messes for Omaha-bound Longhorns
 Texas has made it to Omaha for a record 36th time because the Horns got contributions from most every spot, from the bottom of the batting order where Tate Shaw and Ryan “Deadpool” Reynolds helped produce runs in the two most important games of the season to a stoic middle reliever who doubles as right-handed fire extinguisher...

Golden: Texas’ Kody Clemens made Tennessee Tech pay for pitching to him. Again.
 Note to the pitchers in Omaha: Beware. Kody Clemens is coming. It’s been a simple script for the Texas Longhorns this season: Get solid pitching and ride the Clemens wave offensively. Tennessee Tech found out the hard way. Pitch to Clemens. Suffer. Lose. Texas 5, Tennessee Tech 2.

Golden: Good Austin super regional is better with emotion on both sides
 Texas and Tennessee Tech just met a few days ago but it didn’t take long for sparks to fly. The Hatfields met the McCoys. When there’s a College World Series berth on the line, it makes no sense to waste time with pleasantries. The Longhorns and
            Golden Eagles aren’t exactly brother-in-lawing after splitting the...

Golden: Tennessee Tech is a real problem now, Texas
 It’s one thing to walk into a hostile road environment with 52 wins.
            It’s more impressive to live that record.
            The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles are as good as advertised, and the Texas Longhorns, who rolled through the Austin Regional
               unscathed, just got hit in the mouth.

Golden: Steely Durant just killed drama — and Cavs — in predictable Finals
 We can thank Kevin Durant for making the NBA Finals interesting. We can also dub him Drama Killer 2018. Durant’s Golden State Warriors are about to secure a repeat with a ho-humness normally reserved for people like Tiger, Michael Jordan and Mike Tyson in his prime. At least KD provided us with the seminal moment of the 2018 playoffs...

Golden: Wayne Graham happy to watch baseball, but will he coach again?
 We ran into legendary Rice coach Wayne Graham in the elevator Sunday night following Texas’ NCAA regional win over Indiana at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Graham attended the regional as a guest of both UT coach David Pierce — his former assistant — and UT athletic director Chris Del Conte. “I’m wearing this Longhorn...

Golden: Pierce a first timer in NCAA regional winner’s circle
 I haven’t seen David Pierce’s contract but I’m guessing there wasn’t any language in there about getting fired if he didn’t
            win in the postseason. That sort of thing is just assumed when it comes to Texas baseball. There’s a reason the program has only had three coaches in the last 50 years...

Golden: Aggies on the brink. Will we see a Texas rematch?
 “S-E-C!! S-E-C!!” The chants rained down from the stands in the top of the eighth inning Saturday night. Only this time, it came from the lungs of Big 12 fans. Kody Clemens’ routine infield pop fell harmfully to the turf — in between three dumbfounded Texas A&M infielders — prompting
