    Commitment Spotlight: Tyler Owens

    Owens received a huge bump in 247’s rankings recently and while I may not agree with it, the kid has freakish potential if it can be unlocked down the road.

    The Good, The bad and The Ugly: TCU

    For the second straight week, Texas physically outplayed a ranked opponent. The Longhorns opened Big 12 play with a 31-16 win over TCU. Similar to last week, the win featured a lot of good and not a lot of bad, but let’s take a look at some takeaways from an impressive victory over the Horned Frogs: The Good The Secondary Entering Saturday’s contest, there were a lot of questions about how the Texas secondary would hold up against a TCU passing attack that featured several talented playmakers. The Longhorns defensive backs ended up surrendering only 197 passing yards to Shawn Robinson, and came away with two interceptions. Kris Boyd, Brandon Jones, Caden Sterns and Devante Davis all had big moments. Sterns in particular continues to shine as a freshman, recording both interceptions and playing well in run support. Boyd and Davis each had a few plays they would like to forget, but the duo played well overall. Collin Johnson It is no secret that Collin Johnson has the skill set to take over games at the receiver position, but #9 turned in one of his most memorable performances in a Texas uniform. Johnson recorded his 3rd 100+ yard game in his career, finishing the night with 7 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown. In addition to his big game catching the ball, Johnson also had a huge block to help spring Lil’Jordan Humphrey’s game-clinching 38-yard touchdown reception in the 4th quarter. Johnson’s talent has never been in question, but Saturday’s performance proves that the junior can be a matchup nightmare and has what it takes to be Sam Ehlinger’s #1 receiver. Turnover-Free Sam For the third consecutive game, Sam Ehlinger played a turnover-free game. Don’t look now, but the sophomore has now thrown 8 touchdown passes compared to just 2 interceptions. Tom Herman commented after the game that a lot of Ehlinger’s progress is due to the offensive staff calling plays he is comfortable with and not asking him to do too much. There may not be a play that describes Ehlinger’s development more than his touchdown pass to Humphrey, where Ehlinger stood in the pocket, thought about bailing, but took a few steps back before finding Humphrey over the middle of the field. The Bad Slow Start In 3 of the 4 games for the Longhorns this season, their opponent has scored on their first possession. Yesterday, the Horned Frogs drove down the field with relative ease before having to settle for 46-yard field goal by Jonathan Song. Although the sample size is still relatively small, the Texas defense needs to do a better job of settling down early in games and not letting their opponents draw first blood. Short Yardage Situations Facing a 4th and 1 in the second quarter, Texas did something that I haven’t seen since 2016: playing under center. The result? A pitch play on the short side of the field to Daniel Young that resulted in the loss of a yard. In real time, I agreed with the decision to go for it, but the play call and personnel that matched it were very questionable. It didn’t end up hurting Texas in the long run, but the offensive coaching staff needs to do a better job of sticking with what makes sense. The Ugly Special Teams A week after nailing all 3 of his field goal attempts, Cameron Dicker came back down to Earth by making only 1 of 3 field goals, missing very badly on his final attempt. Ryan Bujcevski averaged 39 yards on 5 punt attempts, but it is obvious that Tom Herman does not have a ton of confidence in his punter. Herman chose not to re-kick following an offsides penalty on a punt, likely because he didn’t want to risk a possible block or a shank from the freshman. D’Shawn Jamison made a mistake on during a kickoff return, bringing out a kick that went 3 yards into the endzone, resulting in a short return and a holding penalty, forcing Texas to start a drive at their own 5. Special teams mistakes have not cost Texas a game to this point in the year, but if the Longhorns plan on competing for a Big 12 title, they must make corrections.

  6. I guess I missed the announcers predicting our plays. In any case.... do you think Patterson had time to look at the formation, and adjust his defense before the ball was snapped? Serious question.... I’m not trying to be argumentative. By the way, I thought it was established that Herman has been calling plays?

    More worried about how this season will play out rather than his recruitment TBH

    Currently living in Ohio, I think Texas will be as listed, third in that battle.

    I was going to say, you're going to have a hard time getting me interested.
  10. Steve Patterson is like a horror movie character like Jason or Freddie Kruger. Instead of making real changes, he's pretending that playing in Dubai was a big deal.

    Four star Ohio DT Rodas Johnson reportedly is down to Penn State, Wisconsin, and Texas. Will be taking OVs to all three per Tyler Donohue of Lions247.

    Yes, they need to go public. Need herman to pressue these guys and get some momentum on the recruiting trail to match the momentum on the field.

    Everything in his recruitment is useless right now. It really doesn't start until November 2019.

    View from the Cheap Seats-Horny Toads

    Cheap Seats has never been one to go with the crowd. That Sterns or another DB wasn't needed to bracket Reagor in fact aided the 2 INTs. When the announcers are calling our plays based on formation, you pretty much have the definition of "predictable". Coach Bro has saved his job and don't look now but he's got TT playing defense. I'm predicting today, he finishes a game or 2 above .500.

    Too many silents...Go public and blow the top off this joint. The last two second halfs of football should have these kids getting excited... I'll stay cautiously optimistic.
