Hello and welcome to the Beavers' live chat with Lindsay Schnell. Yes, there's been some news here in San Antonio. Bring your questions. ...

Lindsay Schnell: 
Hey everyone, I'm here and looking for a reason to procrastinate on my story, so fire away with questions.

The Oregonian: 
Seriously. There's been some news. And not just from me getting frustrated at Alamo Bowl security before the Beavers' walkthrough at the dome.

What's the headline of your story? Is it some ribald?

No, but made us wait in the security office. Credentials worthless there at the time.

Please tell your readers in advance that sexual assault isn't funny, so no rape jokes or Sandusky references please.

Lindsay Schnell: 
Camille, I'm with you, and I think Molly and I would both be very sensitive to anyone's inappropriate comments about sexual assault.
Friday December 28, 2012 1:02 Lindsay Schnell

Lindsay Schnell: 
I know what 84beav is talking about -- last night I made a comment on Twitter about the band being annoying, and a lot of people got angry.

Do the suspensions for the Longhorns affect the game in any meaningful way? (And the band is annoying)
Friday December 28, 2012 1:04 George Brown
1:04
Lindsay Schnell: 
I have often complained of bands in general being annoying (just my opinion) and evidently saying that made some people very angry. I wasn't trying to "dog" anyone, and I apologized later if I offended anyone.

Lindsay Schnell: 
Are the Beavers going to dominate Texas? no, I don't think so. But I do think OSU is going to win.

Lindsay, for people who don't know, will you explain what happened with Texas?

[Comment From GuestGuest: ] 
Do we know if the player suspend were starters?
Friday December 28, 2012 1:06 Guest
1:06
Lindsay Schnell: 
George -- The suspended players haven't officially been announced, but at least one media outlet is reporting that Case McCoy (backup QB) and Jordan Hicks (injured LB who wasn't going to play anyway) have been sent home for a violation of team rules. The common logic is that those are the 2 Texas players currently being investigated for an alleged sexual assault that happened around 2:30 in the morning.

The Oregonian: 
Texas promptly closed its walk-through to all media. So we can't see who DIDN'T get off the bus.

Hey, how about some football news? Does Vaz look sharp? How ia Mannion handling the demotion? Everybody healthy?
Friday December 28, 2012 1:07 marcodg

Lindsay Schnell: 
If that is indeed true, we are trying to figure out who the Longhorns' backup QB would be if David Ash (the starter) couldn't play. I'm pretty sure the third string QB is the punter, Alex King, but not 100 percent certain.

Yuck. Sounds like a very Chip Belly thing to do.

The Oregonian: 
Frankly, Chip doesn't need that type of incident to close access. I think just about any coach would do the same.

Lindsay Schnell: 
Mardodg -- Yes, I think Vaz has looked good all of bowl prep. Mannion is playing just fine, but you can tell he's been down about being named the backup. It's been a difficult situation all season for both guys to deal with.

Flying down on a late flight tonight. Any recommendations on places to eat when we get to town or in the morning?
Friday December 28, 2012 1:08 ChainsawBeav91

Lindsay Schnell: 
And yes, everybody is healthy. I'd encourage people to keep their eye on linebacker DJ Alexander, who is finally at 100 percent, and might be more of the DJ we saw early in the season.

Lindsay Schnell: 
Chainsaw -- Mike Riley himself would suggest the 24-hour TexMex place (I don't know the name but you should be able to google it) and Guenther's for the best pancakes of your life.

I haven't been to either of these places but Hunt went to the 24 hour Tex Mex place and said it was awesome.

Those were cool. But maybe bad luck?

They're supposed to be wearing orange jerseys, black pants and orange helmets. They got new cleats for the game I'm pretty sure, but I don't know what they look like.

As for the throwback option, I still think there's a decent change that when the re-branding stuff is finally released, it has a little throwback flavor to it.

According to Banker they resemble UCLA and Arizona in terms of how they use their athletes.

Lindsay Schnell: 
Mullaney? Yes. Our understanding is that in electing to postpone the surgery he has made himself available for the bowl game. And he practiced all week.
