Golden: Teams shouldn’t sleep on Baker Mayfield — he’s got NFL arm, talent
 Baker Mayfield is too short. Baker Mayfield doesn’t have a big enough arm. Baker Mayfield has character issues. At one time or another, draft analysts have expressed concerns about the Oklahoma quarterback, and now that he’s on the eve of the biggest Thursday night of his 23-year-old life, the most decorated walk-on quarterback...

Golden’s nuggets: Why Texas wideouts Lil’Jordan and Johnson must step up
 The Texas running attack should have no one excited. Daniel Young and Toneil Carter run hard but neither appear to be in that game-breaker category. So Longhorn Nation turns its eyes toward East Texas where Carthage’s Keaontay Ingram, a 2018 Under Armour All-American, will arrive this summer. Here’s what we do know: The Horns...

Golden: The bank was open for Aldridge in playoff eliminator
 San Antonio Spurs was pay-phone dead and it wasn’t universally believed that this Kawhi-less, Pop-less group would avoid the broom against the defending world champions Sunday. Credit the Spurs for not phoning it in against less than favorable odds. San Antonio 103, Golden State 90. The Spurs are going back to Cali, for Game 5. LL Cool...

Golden: Spring game shows that the quarterback position is still a process at Texas
 Sam Ehlinger and Shane Buechele were OK on Saturday night. Both made some throws. Missed some others. To hope for one of them to become the next Vince Young or Colt McCoy? Not realistic. Doesn’t mean that one can’t become the leader that this Texas offense sorely needs. Neither lit up the scoreboard at the annual Orange-White...

Golden: Have we seen the last of Gregg Popovich in San Antonio?
 Gregg Popovich will miss Game 4. As well he should. The coaching legend has always preached “family first” to his players over the years, and now that he is mourning the loss of his beloved wife, Erin, the time has come for him to practice what he has always preached. The San Antonio Spurs announced Saturday that Popovich won&rsquo...

Golden: New exhibit reminds us of sports’ past — and present — struggles
 Three steps into the LBJ Presidential Library’s newest exhibition is a step into the past. And, in some ways, the present. It’s called “Get in the Game: The Fight for Equality in American Sports” and gives an illustration of the obstacles that athletes in this country have overcome to earn their rightful place in the...

Golden: Leonard turning his back to Spurs teammates isn’t a good look
 You can slice it a million different ways and this Kawhi Leonard thing will still come out the same every time. A bad look for the player. The San Antonio Spurs are fighting for their playoff lives and Leonard — their most dynamic player — is nowhere to be found. The people inside the San Antonio Spurs camp could fill us in on...

Golden’s nuggets: Goodbye, Godzillatron? Texas eyes stadium expansion
 Even Godzillatron has a shelf life. The reality hit home last week with the revelation that Texas is planning to expand the south end zone of Royal-Memorial Stadium as part of a $140 million project that’s reportedly projected for completion by the summer of 2021. The massive scoreboard cost the university $8 million when it was constructed...

Golden: Jimbo Fisher’s Aggie wish list
 Get it done, Jimbo Fisher. By hook or by crook, get it done. The Texas A&M brass decided that the former Florida State head coach was worth $79 million more than that cyborg Lee Majors played on television back in the ’70s before he became the Fall Guy. No one can ever say the Aggies aren’t after championships, even though Nick...

Golden: Cutting Dez Bryant was a tough call, but the right call
 Dez caught the ball. Dez caught a pink slip. Neither worked in his favor. The Dallas Cowboys parted ways Friday with their emotional wideout, ending an eight-year association that never fully lived up to the hype when owner Jerry Jones plucked the Oklahoma State star with the 24th pick of the 2010 draft. Good move, Jerry. “This was...

 The players. They were what Augie Garrido really cared about when it came to coaching the game he loved.

Golden: Manziel comeback story begins at the Palace on Parmer
 It only takes one. One NFL team to believe he has turned it around. One NFL team to believe his hard-partying days are over. One NFL team to embrace this new and improved person. One NFL team to believe he can help it win with no drama off the field. America loves a comeback, and Johnny Manziel started his on a drearyApril day on a high school...

Golden: The Ceddys — the best and worst of the NCAA basketball tourney
 All hail, Villanova, kings of the hardwood. And while we’re at it, have a gander at the latest batch of Ceddys, the best and worst of the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Best finish: Michigan’s Jordan Poole’s three-pointer to beat Houston. No one knew at the time that it would propel an already surging Michigan team to the championship...
