SHEAD FAMILIAR WITH TEXAS' FIGHT SONG
“Texas fight, Texas fight,” doesn't sound so bad to guard Adam Shead.
That's because his alma mater, Cedar Hill High School in south Dallas, used it as the melody for its fight song.
“I know it well,” Shead said. Then he sang a couple lines, so the media could hear the similarity between it.
“Cedar Hill, Cedar Hill, we're the home of the red and white,” Shead sang. “We changed it up a bit, but it's tight though.”
This week, Shead caught himself singing the Cedar Hill version in practice, when coaches blared the Longhorns' fight song on loudspeakers.
MEN'S HOOPS TO LIVE STREAM PRACTICE
OU announced Wednesday that it will live stream men's basketball practices daily; it is believed to be the first NCAA Division I program to do so.
The live streaming represents another level of transparency under second-year coach Lon Kruger, who last season made all practices open to the public. Oklahoma's first practice is Friday, and it will be live streamed with audio.
Practices during the week begin at 2 p.m., lasting for about two-and-a-half hours. Coaches may decide to make specific parts of practices unavailable for online viewing.
The visiting Notre Dame band will practice on Noble High School's football field on Saturday, Oct. 27, before that day's game on Owen Field against Oklahoma. The rehearsal, tentatively scheduled to last from 1:15 to 2:30 p.m., is free and open to the public. The OU-Notre Dame kickoff time has yet to be announced. ... Phil Steele released his 2012 midseason All-American teams Wednesday; junior WR Kenny Stills was selected for the third team, and junior FS Tony Jefferson is on the fourth team.
