Blammo, we can not put it to bed. I know it has been bothering Longhorn Fans all over the world ever since Sark was announced to be the new HFC at the Great University of Texas.
Back to your regularly scheduled badassery. Check this run out.
If this doesn't get the blood pumping to your special parts, then you don't like longhorn football and you can now close out the article, because what we are about to talk about is only for those willing to enter the Burnt Orange Cathedral that Bijan and Co. are building.
Bijan Robinson is the truth, he cuts on turf like a sheepshead darts through the shallows off the coast. He is truly in his element on the field and it's going to be something special to watch in the upcoming season.
But wait, this grown ass man would like a word:
RoJo should still starts - he isn't RB2 at this point, due to his incredible physicality and gift for creating yards where there are none to be had. There will be a true 2 headed monster coming out of the Texas Backfield this Fall and it's going to be glorious.
I almost forgot in all the excitement to talk about SCHOOLER switching to safety. Yep, you heard that right - he is officially moving away from WR and moving to Safety for the '21 season.
I mean check out these 2 mean ass dudes, BJ Foster and Kitan Crawford - these dudes look ready to shut down anything coming their way.
With that we get into pure and rampant speculation because we have absolutely dick to go off of as far as film, or anything else. The 9.95ers got the opportunity for some media availability with Sark, Okafor and Gbenda. All completely worthless information given in all the interviews.

In true 9.95er fashion, I'm going to make up all kinds of things and nothing, I mean nothing in this post is going to be worth a damn as far as insider information is concerned, but it's going to get your blood pumping and make you think you know a lot more than anyone actually does about what is going on in spring practice.

I also use basic quantum field theory to examine the structure and properties of electrons and protons to show that they have the same basic structure and should be thought of as two different charge-matter variations of the same basic type of particle. So my claim is that there is only one particle.
I started this as a test to see if such a model could be done and the results were even better than I imagined. The precise match of most of the masses makes me confident that the basic theory is correct even though it still needs work in some areas. The Bohr-Sommerfeld solutions on which it is based are acknowledged to be overly simplified, while still frequently within 0.5% of the correct mass.
For example rho and omega mesons are made of 4 pion group resonances which is why their masses are approximately equal to the combined masses of two pions and a kaon. Compare that to the irrational formulas used by the quark model for the neutral rho and omega.

Why options trading
Leverage. You can control a lot more stock for $.
Flexibility. You can play any sentiment - bullish, bearish, neutral - and you can pick and choose the risk-reward! Instead of just choosing a safe vs risky stock, for any given stock, you can choose how much you want to lever its movement.
Engagement. Options have an element of time expiration in their construction, which obliges you to stay in (somewhat) active and engaged in the market.
What are options
These are contracts that grants the contract holder the right (but not the obligation) to buy or sell 100 units of stock at an agreed price, before a certain date.
It has these elements: Strike price, Expiration date
Call option - contract holder can buy ABC stock from contract seller. option buyer "calls" the shares away from sellers' account
Put option - contract holder can sell ABC stock to contract seller. option buyer "puts" the shares in sellers' account.
Options are tradeable instruments like units of stocks. For our practical purposes, we don't really worry about the above (yet). We buy when cheap and sell when high. Or sell when high and buy when cheap.
How do you price options? (i.e. what is cheap?)
If you're a nerd, you'd invoke the Black-Scholes equation. If, like me, you failed 9th grade trig, you can think of it in more simple abstract terms:
options premium = Intrinsic Value + Extrinsic Value = (Strike$-Stock$)+(Volatility*Time)
Take Apple, which is 135$ right now. How much would you pay to have the right to purchase shares of Apple for $130/share at anytime....
before the end of the week?

They’re going to have to change it to Floppy Top. Or Sloppy Top.
When PJ Fleck went to Minnesota, ESPN did the docu-series “Being PJ Fleck.” They should do one on Heupel called “Becoming Mark Mangino.” He’s well on his way.
