Watch below to get a feel for what the players are thinking with just a couple days left before the biggest game of their lives…


One of the best players on the field during Saturday’s [tag]Under Armour All-American[/tag] game was defensive tackle [tag]Taylor Bible[/tag].

ESPN goes behind the scenes with Rick Barnes at a Texas basketball practice:


During an interview this week, Texas head coach [tag]Mack Brown[/tag] clearly states that there should not be a distinction between BCS and non-BCS schools and that all schools should be treated equally.
