YooTee and Au Jus will take their first steps toward the door today when they inform the Big 12 they do not plan to extend their media rights deal with the league beyond 2025.

Also today, The Aggie Board of Regents will meet to consider how to deal with their Orange Tormentors.

Meanwhile, that rattling sound you hear is knees knocking in the ADs’ offices at TCU, Texas Tech and Baylor.

You know what I love about college football? Football games.  That’s pretty much it. Most of the wheeling and dealing part of the “sport” makes me want to take a Brillo-Pad Shower.

There are 50,000 daily reasons why D. Watson will show up at Texans Training Camp. Understand, nothing’s changed. He still wants out of Houston and still faces 22 lawsuits.

Hey, David Culley…you sure you really want that job?

The Texans picked up former Bears WR Anthony Miller yesterday.  The team does have some guys who can catch it.  The question is who’s gonna throw it. Tyrod Taylor, I guess. Two things about Tyrod. 1. He’s a true pro and a wonderful teammate. 2. He’s about to get the living hell beat out of him.

The Boys signed free agent cornerback Kyron Brown, who spent last year on the Jets’ PUP list with a quad injury. Let’s hope this Akron alum has some Zip.

Dallas oughta be in good shape at TE. Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz are a solid pair.

Seems like the Browns change uniforms as often as most people change socks. But the 75th team anniversary throwback look they’ve adopted for this season is actually kinda sweet. I really dig the numerals on the helmets. Where were you in 1946?

One more Browns note.  I keep trying not to like Baker Mayfield. I keep failing…

Did you see the video on social media of Brady throwing footballs back into the mouth of a JUGS machine? That was beyond impressive for a 247 year old man.

Pass rusher Chandler Jones wants out of Arizona. You know, money, and all that. Hell, no, I’m not trading him.

Aptly named former Aggie Cameron Champ was manly yesterday. The Champeen fought off dehydration to win the 3M Classic. After taking a two-shot lead to the 18th tee, Champ drove one to the left of Ho Chi Minh.  Tall grass. Behind a wall of trees. He was in danger of not only blowing his lead, he could have missed a playoff. It was that bad. Triple bogey was not out of the question.  Instead, he winds up hitting a magnificent fourth shot that lunar gravity or something almost sucked into the cup. “Routine” par to complete a bogey-free final round five-under-par 66.

Another bridal bouquet for Louis O. That’s four runner-up finishes in his last seven tournaments.

The Rangers’ losing streak has reached 12. Only three more Ls to go before they can tie their 49-year-old club record. I think they have it in ‘em…

These Olympics ain’t exactly a Yankee Doodle Dandy so far. Ledecky got beat? In a swimming race?  And I’m already getting nostalgic about the good ol’ days when American men could play basketball.

Goodbye until Ruby Tuesday.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
