Just in time for gameday: 2013 Longhorn Preview

"2012 was supposed to be the year Texas returned to relevancy but Texas lost to West Virginia then was humiliated by Oklahoma and went on to finish the season at 9-4.

Nine wins, to the average team nine wins would be considered a great season. But we are not talking about an average team.  We’re talking about Texas, a national powerhouse, a top recruiter every year, and program rich in tradition.

Nine Wins is mediocre for Texas. After three seasons, of mediocrity is Texas ready to jump back into relevancy? Are the Texas coaches and players ready to become the program they were?

Just Average Sports: San Antonio Spurs: The Bitter Taste of Defeat and A Future So Bright

Just Average Sports: San Antonio Spurs: The Bitter Taste of Defeat and A Future So Bright

The Spurs were seconds from victory. A few rebounds from hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

In the end came the Spurs came up a Tim Duncan missed jumper and tip in short of winning an NBA Championship.

This loss may sting for a while but the Spurs will continue to climb the mountain chipping their way to the top.

The bitter taste of defeat will only fuel Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green and the rest of the young Spurs to reach the pinnacle of success.

As for the Big Three, who knows what is in their future. All you can hope is that there is enough gas in their tanks to make one more run.

If you need solace, you can find it in a quote by Jacob Riis that has hung in the Spurs locker room for 17 years.

"When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”

Just Average Sports: Green and Neal Lead Spurs to Blowout Victory Over Heat

The San Antonio Spurs returned to the AT&T Center for an NBA Finals game for the first time since 2007. What happened during the game was unfathomable. The Spurs, after being blown out 84-103 in Game 2, hit a Finals record 16 three-pointers and decimated the Heat, 113-77.

"It’s been a while since I’ve shot the ball like that," said Danny Green. "A couple games in the season, I shot it pretty well but tonight was a totally different feeling of comfort level from the perimeter. But, they trusted in me, we had a comfortable lead and I just kept running the floor, trying to get open, when I saw daylight I let it fly."
