August 1st Southwest Round-Up

Devonte Fields denied assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

UTEP is one of the few Texas schools to hold fall camp away from campus. The Miners kick off camp in lovely Alpine next week.

Texas College in Tyler has named Rodney Blackshear, the former Red Raider and Miami Dolphin, as their head coach. Blackshear played for Spike Dykes at Tech and coached under Mike Leach and Art Briles. The Steers (rather unfortunate name) haven't won more than 3 games in their existence.

Josh Turner has been reinstated to the UT Roster. But he's been put on triple secret probation.

Baylor and Texas made the preseason top 25.

Former A&M defensive end Gavin Stansbury transferred to Houston. He'll be eligible to play immediately.

Speak of the Coogs, former UTSA quarterback Eric Soza has been named offensive quality control assistant at Houston.

Rice has received a $12 million dollar gift to kick start their facility upgrade.

A photo tour of A&M's new lockerroom facility. Looks fairly ridiculous. Unless you're into fountains, hundreds of flat screens, and a custom barber shop.
