Good Bull Hunting: A trusted news source for real journalists. The lightening quick news desk here at GBH was on the ball yesterday when Rosenburg Police put out a tweet reporting that Aggie DB Victor Davis has been caught shoplifting in his hometown. But the real news is that Brent Zwerneman, fellow Ag and real journalist who gets paid for his work, cited GBH as the news breakers on this story. And your mom said that spending all your time on the internet would be a bad thing, shows her now.

Bouncyball News? No, its football time again, wait your turn. Oh, never mind, it's just that the non-conference schedule for Men's basketball has been released for the 2014-2015 season. With schools like Hartford, Sam Houston, Youngstown, Mercer, New Orleans and Arizona State all coming to Reed Arena at the end of this year, you can make plans to fill the time between the regular football season and the bowl game season. Enjoy Aggie basketball before you realize that college football, once again is over for the year.

Apparently, teenagers are fickle and change their minds all the time. Madness. OT Patrick Hudson from Silsbee has changed his commitment from Texas A&M to Baylor. As a five-star player, this is a bummer to see such a highly ranked kid go to another school, but we can all laugh that he has a scholarship to Texas and still wants to go to Waco instead.

Remembrances. Coach Jim Myers has passed away at the age of 92 in Dallas, Texas. He coached the Aggies as head coach from 1958 to 1961, following the departure of Paul "Bear" Bryant. He also served as an OC for the Dallas Cowboys under Tom Landry. His win record at A&M was not as notable as his other coaching tenures, but Aggies and Cowboys fans can give tribute all the same to Coach Myers in Dallas later his week.
