Oil-rich Texas U. seeks to unlock more shale wealth 7.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The University of Texas is looking for new ways to cash in on 2.1 million acres of prime oil assets obtained through land grants more than a century ago.

Despite an eventual season-ending overtime loss to the Huskies, it was that never-say-die attitude that has coach Rob Bohlmann feeling good about 2016.
