The shenanigans are officially over. Conference play is kicking off, body bag games are in the rear view mirror and we’ll need you at your best on Saturday. Don’t worry about pushing yourself to watch games on Thursday and Friday. Concentrate on hydrating, resting your legs, and trying to reconcile with your significant other. Lie to them and tell them you’ve changed. You haven’t of course, but it’s best if they find that out on their own when you’re non-responsive on the couch at 2 a.m. Sunday morning as UCLA and Arizona hit the over.
All times Texas.
