Rapid fire responses to Saturday college football:

Same old Aggies. Again. Same old Aggies.

Not the same old Longhorns. The way they battled through some tough spots and outscored ‘Bama 21-8 in the fourth quarter was more than impressive. As a buddy texted me Saturday night, “I think the ‘Horns are gonna be just fine in the SEC.”

As for UTSA, the Roadrunners continue to display True Grit. Dem’s some tough Birds.

Baylor (They Nasty!) is 0-2

The Owls took at least ten years off of my remaining life after almost managing to blow a 28-0 lead against Houston. Nevertheless, The Bayou Bucket now resides on South Main! And did you see that one-handed TD catch by Luke McCaffrey?

Colorado has some athletes. And does Nebraska actually practice football during the week? It doesn’t look like it.

Three more TD passes for Caleb Williams. Heisman repeat?

N.C. State was hangin’ with Notre Dame. And then they weren’t.

What the hell was Art Briles doing on the field after OU’s home win over SMU?

Northwestern won a football game!

Mel Tucker is as good as done at Michigan State.  And MSU won’t have to pay him a dime. Yuck. Haven’t read the story? Maybe you don’t want to…

Welcome back, my beautiful NFL Sundays!  I missed you!

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.
