I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 1/11/2016

Rules are made to be broken so I'm breaking one this week.  Normally our Sportsman of the Week is Monday through Sunday, but I'm going to reward an epic Monday night performance that just can't wait.  Alabama Crimson Tide tight end O.J. Howard snagged just five passes, but for an astounding 208 yards and 2 touchdowns in an entertaining 45-40 Alabama win in the College Football Playoff Championship Game.  The underutilized weapon had topped out at 70 yards in a single game during the season, with under 400 yards total and zero touchdowns.  Both touchdowns broke up ties and seemed to be body blows to the stubborn Clemson Tigers who kept coming and coming.  And the end, Howard was the difference, and he is our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
