"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


preps update

We here at Texas in Africa take our college football pretty seriously. And while November is full of excitement about who'll remain undefeated, the annual BCS gripe-fest, and the inevitable fear in the hearts of Longhorn football fans that our boys will mess this wonder up, it's also the time I start to get a little sad. The home football games are almost over and there's no kidding anyone that the season will be over in two short months. So, naturally, all there is to do is think about the future. And after watching Westlake's rout of Crockett Friday night, my mind is on our recruits for next year. It turns out that last year's Rose Bowl win and this year's season are having their desired effect and keeping those Texas boys south of the Red River like the good Lord intended. SEVEN of the Rivals 100 top recruits in the country are committed to Texas, and Dave Campbell's got 24 kids who've given oral commitments to the Longhorns. Some of this will change, of course, but overall, the future's looking bright. And maybe Mack Brown will have the chance to take a nap in January instead of having to stand guard against Bob Stoops.

As for the present, Vince's stock is going up. Remember to vote for him weekly here.
