    Not a buyout. He just went.

    It'll be interesting if they fill this position or just cover the Longhorns from Dallas.

    Have heard their other main college writer, Brian Davis, has been taken off A&M to help cover the Cowboys. Be interesting to see what they do with their college coverage.

    DMN will most definitely have a writer in Austin covering the Horns. If they ask I could even tell them who to call. And no, it's not me.

    But you would be willing, right? Cause, you know, it could be arranged...

    The guy I'm thinking of is a lot better choice than me.

  10. Davis filled Albert Breer's spot after he left for The Sporting News. I'm not sure if Davis' replacement has been figured out yet.

    Brown will stay in Austin and will continue to do his radio show. There's no doubt in my mind that the DMN will have someone in Austin. No telling who, but I can pretty much promise you it will be a promotion from within.

    What I heard was they wanted Brown to cover the entire Big 12 South on his own. And whoever replaces Brown will be asked the same. I'm not so sure the DMN will have someone in Austin and not also have someone assigned to A&M.
    After all, the DMN decided not to staff Tuesday's All-Star game even with four Rangers on the roster and Hamilton in the HR hitting contest. DMN also didn't send golf writer Bill Nichols to the British, which they've always done in the past.
  12. Whether or not they wanted Brown to cover the entire Big 12 south, I don't know. But I'm sure he got a sweet raise by going to Rivals.
