August 8th Southwest Round Up

We reported last week that Devonte Fields was transferring to SFA. He's not. We aren't printing a retraction. Suck it journalism.

Andrew McNulty and Josh Greer are in a quarterback battle at UNT, because they were in a quarterback battle last spring too. So...nothing has changed. In other quarterback non-news...

Neal Burcham is holding onto the QB job at SMU. Someone has to.

Baylor's Clay Fuller is out 6-8 weeks with a broken clavicle. Ever had someone pinch your clavicle? Might be the only pain worse than the Texas titty twister. Fuller just got engaged Kim Mulkey's daughter. Let's all monitor that situation.



This may be the only time this headline is written about the UTEP defense this season.

Former A&M linebacker Darian Claiborne is set to enroll at Texas Southern. Alert the authorities. For those of you scoring at home, Claiborn was busted with possession of a dangerous drug, arrested on a noise violation, and then upgraded to a assault with a deadly weapon. Godspeed Darian. You appear to be heading down a chosen path. Enjoy the SWAC.

Jaxon Shipley is out with a hamstring injury. The Bud is fairly certain the College Football Gods will not allow a Shipley to play without a McCoy. It's like they're the wonder twins of wounded duck floaters and precision 6 yard hitch routes.

In other news, the Red River Shootout (screw you PC police, it's called a shootout, there will be gun play, fine works of art destroyed, carbs and non-vapor cigarets will be consumed) may be settled with a pre-game hair off. Right now it's a pick'em.

Stalking 17 Year-olds...

Tech gets another commitment from an Offensive lineman. Madison Akamnonu picked the Red Raiders over OU. Stoops is currently prepping for a press conference where he belittles Tech's non conference schedule.

SMU picked up the commitment of an outside linebacker from Highland Park. Kid was offered by Colgate. We're assuming the college not the toothpaste.

An SMU commitment from the now, probably, defunct Prime Prep Academy is transferring to DeSoto for his senior season.
