  1. The Texas men’s basketball team received some good news on Monday evening when Kai Jones, a 4-star center from Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, verbally pledged to the Longhorns. He held offers from more than 25 schools, including Kansas, North Carolina, Ohio State, Georgetown, Texas, Baylor and Florida State. On September 23rd after visiting Austin, the 6-10, 205 lb. senior from Brewster Academy listed Baylor, Florida State and Texas in his final three. Jones’ scouting report from ESPN reads: “An extremely athletic post player who is just scratching the surface of his ability. A hard working and active big man who shows touch facing the basket all the way to the 3 point line. Offensively he is more comfortable and effective playing a face up game in space.” Although he plays center in high school, Texas is recruiting Jones as a power forward. Originally from the Bahamas, he transferred to Brewster Academy from Orlando Christian Prep in Orlando, Florida, where he won a state championship. Jones is listed as the 53rd best prospect in the country in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, and the 3rd best player in the state of New Hampshire. He joins Elkins High School (Missouri City, TX) shooting guard Donovan Williams in Shaka Smart’s 2019 recruiting class.

    Tom Herman’s favorite play in the Texas vs. OU game

    Kyler Murray is scary good - the Oklahoma defense was worse than I thought.
  7. Herman mentioned it in the postgame press conference at the Cotton Bowl, and again at his Monday media availability. Thought it warranted sharing (the play). It wasn’t a passing bomb for a TD, or a trick play, but rather a 3rd & long that Texas didn’t convert on the down. Here is what Herman had to say about the play: “I think the biggest thing -- I don't know if I mentioned it in the postgame. I knew it on the field it was a big play, but I think third and 20 on your first drive of the second half and throw a tunnel screen just trying to add yards on to your punt, and L.J. Humphrey got stopped. I think we counted, like, 14 yards shy or the first contact was 14 yards shy of the first down and him and the rest of his teammates, I mean, just willed him to within 2 yards, made the decision to go for it on fourth down, pretty easy after seeing that effort, energy, attitude, culture.” I also wanted to add that over the course of the season, Tom Herman is starting to make “sense” if that makes sense... His philosophy and strategy as a coach is starting to resonate with his players and it is resulting in wins. Halfway through the season, Texas is one game away from being bowl eligible. For the last several years, that designation depended on the outcome of Week 12. There is still half a season to play, but Herman deserves credit for what the team has done thus far in 2018. He has them working hard week after week to put their best on the field, regardless of opponent. Still 6 games left and plenty of opportunity for the team to stumble, but it’s impressive to see how this team has fought back after losing to Maryland. The play:

    *****GAME THREAD - TEXAS vs. OKLAHOMA*****

    No injuries to anyone from the OU game, including Ingram. Herman says the guys are "banged up" but nothing significant.
  9. Following the upset win over #7 Oklahoma, Texas head coach Tom Herman met with members of the media to discuss the win and the upcoming Baylor game. The Longhorns are ranked #9 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and will host the Baylor Bears at 2:30 PM on Saturday at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium. A recap of the key points of Herman’s Monday media availability can be found below. Injuries – Herman mentioned there were no significant injury updates to report. post OU. References Patrick Hudson (heat-related hospital issue), Malcolm Roach (broken foot from USC game) and longer-term injuries that are surgery-related. Herman said it was nice for the offense to carry a game for the team instead of having to rely on the defense to do so. Baylor isn’t a team that Herman or his players take lightly. The Bears have a winning record (4-2, 2-1) and a top-10 passing offense. After two straight road games, the team is happy to be playing at home this Saturday. The play of the game for Tom Herman (against Oklahoma) was the 3rd and 20 on the first drive of the second half in which Ehlinger threw a tunnel screen to LJ Humphrey. Humphrey was stopped 2 yards shy of the first down marker after fighting for yardage. Texas went for it on 4th down and converted. Herman says the Humphrey play was a demonstration of the team’s “culture of toughness.” Tom Herman received 197 text messages after the win over Oklahoma. He received 9 text messages after the loss to Maryland. He used that as a teaching point to his players and reiterated that the only opinions that matter are of the coaches and fellow teammates – that the support would be there from those folks regardless of the outcome. Says the team is not at a place right now where winning should be “expected.” He reiterated that winning is the fruit of the labor of the week of preparation, and should be celebrated whether the team beats Tulsa or Oklahoma. Texas must play their best game in order to beat their opponent, nothing less. On Sam Ehlinger, Herman says the team and the coaches really believe in him right now. A few days prior to the Oklahoma game, Herman said he called Ehlinger and told him he plays really well when he is confident and agressive. The Longhorns have found somewhat of a blueprint that works. Herman says that when you find that blueprint, you don’t change it. Tom Herman voted his team #11 in the most recent AP Poll. Says he doesn’t watch a lot of college football but he hears Alabama is “good.” Herman on Baylor QB Charlie Brewer: I can’t say enough about his development.He’s really good. He has a chance to be special.”
