Wren, a former walk-on, was put on scholarship earlier this season. Today, he was granted an extra year of eligibility, making him a redshirt-junior as opposed to a senior. This is huge for the O-line. The starters for the past few games have been Brown, Powers, Wren, Samia, and Evans. Brown is a redshirt-sophomore, Powers is a sophomore, Samia is a sophomore, and Evans is redshirt-freshman. Assuming Brown doesn't go pro, we should return our entire starting O-line. We will still have good depth as well, with his backup, Alvarez, returning next year.
Even if this kid had played for Texas, I'd still be rooting for him.
I have to tell you that I am very proud of this man. He proves that everyone deserves a second chance, and that people do in fact mature when they get older and wiser, and change can be made for the better.

I like the perspective, honestly. But some things could have easily gone the other way. WVU and Texas, for example.

Here's what our friends over at The Smoking Musket are saying about tonight's game.
Raise your hand if you have any idea what's going to happen game-to-game in the Big 12 conference. If your hand is raised, sorry, but you're lying. With every team playing no more than three games, only two, Kansas and Iowa State, are left undefeated. Texas is good, right? Well, they were number one in these rankings last week. Spoiler alert: They're not this week. The Horns got blasted by 21 to Oklahoma last Monday. They followed that up with a loss at Oklahoma State.
