On Second Thought Ep 174: Brian Davis on the chances of Texas spring football being cancelled and coronavirus impact on Longhorn Foundation

Posted March 26th, 2020


Texas football-basketball beat writer Brian Davis joins On Second Thought hosts Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden this week and dishes on how big a blow it would be if Tom Herman and his newfangled coaching staff won’t be allowed to conduct spring football practice. The guys also discuss how concerned the Texas administration is with how the coronavirus could hurt the donation pool from the Longhorn Foundation and athletic director Chris Del Conte’s looming decision on whether or not to retain basketball coaches Shaka Smart and Karen Aston.

Also, Dallas Cowboys radio voice Brad Sham weighs in on Dak Prescott’s contract negotiations and how the roster is stacking up with departures and new signings.

All that, and some movie talk from the Duck to top it off.
