I always preferred away games to home games, always. The experience meant so much more than playing at home (with a few exceptions). I’m not dissing Texas fans or Darrell K. Royal Stadium — those I dearly love. Although, we are known for leaving in the third quarter.

We look closely at an OOS LB, the state of Louisiana recruiting, and get a preview of Notre Dame from someone who covers Notre Dame. We also look at the latest from hoops recruiting as Shaka Smart lines up his next potential Longhorns in Austin. All here in the Scoop.

It’s 11 days to go; the equivalent of December 14th for children. Keeping with the spirit, I’ll provide my wish list for a season that has more to do with forward trajectory than wins and losses. Wins are certainly an indicator and ultimately how Charlie Strong will be judged, but barring a catastrophic season, wins and losses don’t matter as much as how the team sets up for 2016 — when wins will certainly matter.

In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll keep it between the lines as we did last week despite swirling rumors that reside on the outlandish side of the fence. El Cohiba Grande has a pretty salty overview of the last week of practice and what to look forward to as we head down the stretch to opening day. While your 401k’s may be languishing, the outlook is bright for the 2015 Longhorns as we go inside the Humidor.
