The human brain can torment its owner. But it also contains amazing healing powers, especially among young brains.

The Longhorns lost six of their last seven.

But they won their last one. And THAT is what they will carry into spring ball. Call it The Amazing Healing Powers of the Young Brain.

p.s. You have now used your mulligan, Sark.

I owe my buddies Reeb and Kimby a beer, or…several…I told them a few weeks ago there was no way TCU would hire Sonny Dykes away from SMU.

And Skip Holtz and La. Tech are parting ways after nine years? Crap. That means the Bulldogs will be all snot-nosed emotional as Skippy coaches his last game today against…my Rice Owls. Wonder if Skippy might wanna just stay on South Main in Houston after that one. Bloomie gotta go.

And speaking of C-USA, the undefeated UTSA Roadrunners are an uncommonly mentally tough team. They will need all of that toughness today in Denton as they close out their regular season against Norff Texas. That’s a trap game if ever I saw one. Norff Texas got off to a very slow start this year. But Norff Texas has some very good players. And Norff Texas has been rolling for about a month now.

Quite the comeback by N.C. State to beat the Tarheels and keep their ACC Championship Game hopes alive. In my mind’s eye, I can see Mack Brown barfing into a trash can after that one.

Cincy is 12-0. If the Bearcats take care of business in the AAC Title Game, they BETTER make it to the CFP.

Today is the last big Saturday of the college football regular season. Hold me?

OK, here we go.,

Ohio State 31 Michigan 27. Yes, Michigan has improved this year. No, they will not win.

Boston College 38 Wake Forest 31. That puts N.C. State in the ACC Championship Game.

Baylah (They still NASTY!) 41 Texas Tech 24

UTSA 28 Norff Texas 27

Alabama 31 Auburn 21 And Saban says you better LIKE it, Tide fans!

Oregon State 71 Oregon 10 Front-running Ducks will quit after what happened last week.

Penn State 24 Michigan State 21 Big letdown for Sparty, too.

Texas A&M 37 LSU 21 Bye, Eddie.

Oklahoma State 37 Au Jus 35

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.
