So, yesterday was quite a day, wasn't it?

David Purdy

I don't know if you guys noticed it being somewhat on the outside, but yesterday was one of the highest posting volume days in ODB history in terms of articles.  Just so you don't miss anything, here's everything that went up yesterday in chronological order, and that's without the DBR I was supposed to write and didn't.  Sorry.

First Look: Texas Longhorns

That commit recap series is something I've wanted to do for a long time, so I'm glad to see that it was so well-received.  Also, thank you for the warm welcome to Carter, who I think is going to do a great job.

Other than the above, a lot went down yesterday, starting with a couple of Texas players running their mouths:

"Just because they started playing better, that's good for them."

Texas players’ comments escalate rivalry with Baylor - WacoTrib.com: Baylor Bears Football
The verbal shots from the Texas Longhorns started coming Monday morning from Austin, and quickly grabbed the attention of the Baylor players.

Our players steadfastly refused to return fire, but several past Bears did so on Twitter:

PREACH IT, JORDAN.

Other neutral observers were equally unimpressed:

The other big news of the day is that Baylor is finally healthy once again!

As if playing Baylor wasn't scary already, the No. 7 Bears are getting healthy now.

I talked about that a bit in last night's First Look.

In a state where members of the Supreme Court are elected, one justice uses Twitter, and often, to connect to his constituents.

Finally, a few tweets:
