No. 15 Texas entered Saturday’s game at Kansas State riding a seven-game win streak, with Rick Barnes’ team not only well on its way to earning an NCAA tournament bid also sitting just a game behind Kansas in the Big 12 standings. But the Longhorns ran into a buzz saw in Manhattan, with Marcus Foster…

When it comes to discussing the surprising season that No. 25 Texas has enjoyed up to this point, the prevailing story is one of a team that made multiple additions by subtraction with talented players who had little desire to be a part of Rick Barnes’ program hitting the road. Is there truth in that?…

Just about any preseason “hot seat” list included Texas head coach Rick Barnes, and with the change in athletic director on the “40 Acres” there was enough conversation to make one think that this season would be nothing more than a lengthy testimonial of sorts for the veteran coach. With just two upperclassmen, bouncing back…

It’s the end of the first semester and No. 14 North Carolina is still waiting for a decision from the NCAA on the eligibility status of guards P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald. The Tar Heels have been without the duo for the first nine games of the season, and they will both likely be in street…

It wasn’t pretty, but the Texas Longhorns pulled off another win on Monday night, earning a 70-64 win over Vanderbilt at home to move to 7-1 on the season. Texas head coach Rick Barnes’ hot seat is cooling a bit as the wins keep mounting and the Longhorns had to really hold on to earn…

There has been no one that has spent more time on preseason hot seat lists than Texas head coach Rick Barnes. Football school or not, that’s what happens when you make 14 straight NCAA tournaments before standing by as your program falls apart. Texas missed the NCAA tournament last season. After the departures of Myck…

Texas head coach Rick Barnes is on the hot seat. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The Longhorns have struggled mightily in the past two seasons, getting knocked out in the Round of 64 in the 2012 tournament and missing the NCAA tournament all together last season after finishing the year 16-18. Barnes…

Criticize Rick Barnes all you want — believe me, the criticism is not unfounded — but the longtime Texas coach has built quite the resume for himself in his time with the Longhorns. He has been the head coach for 15 years, and in his first 14 years earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament…

Much has been made over the last week or so of Rick Barnes’ struggles at Texas. The consensus seems to be that Barnes has taken his foot off the accelerator on the recruiting trail, that something in his life has made him realize that his job is only that: a job. But regardless of the…

Earlier today, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com posted an interesting column on Rick Barnes (Insiders only, unfortunately) in which he not only asserts what everyone who has been paying attention has noticed — that Barnes is on the hot seat at Texas — but offers up a reason for Barnes’ recent struggles with the Longhorns: his…

One of two point guards to announce a commitment Friday night, Isaiah Taylor (The Village School/Houston, TX) will stay in state for his college career, as he committed to Rick Barnes and the Texas Longhorns. “I just committed,” Taylor told Orangebloods.com. “I called the coaches a couple of hours ago to tell them.” “I was the…

On the 30-year anniversary of Chaminade beating then-no. 1 ranked Virginia, the Silverswords get another upset victory in the tournament they host, upsetting Texas 86-73. Greatest irony of the game: This is Rick Barnes second loss to Chaminade in the Maui Invitational. He was the head coach of the 1991-92 team that lost to the…

Rick Barnes has commitment issues. At least when it comes to recruits. Just a few months after DeAndre Daniels backed out of a verbal commitment with Texas, Barnes had another five-star prospect do the same. Myck Kabongo, a 6-2 point guard considered a consensus Top 15 prospect in the class of 2011, told ESPN.com that…

Whoa. Where’d that depth go? As Matt Norlander points out, Texas’ busy offseason may be one of the most important college hoops stories of the summer that no one’s talking about. Peter G. Aiken/Getty Last season, Rick Barnes’ embarrassment of roster riches was a boon when injuries hit. But Damion James, Dexter Pittman and Justin…
