The news that Major Applewhite would be the new head coach at Houston threw a wrench in my work on this breakdown, but it turned out to be a bit of a blessing.

INDIANAPOLIS – Charlie Strong is set in his ways. So was Michael Dyer. With the 2015 recruiting class in the books, it’s evident the head coach of the Texas Longhorns knows how to recruit very good football players. And with the NFL draft approaching, it’s even more evident that Strong does more than develop recrui...

If you follow Texas baseball, you probably know the name Adrian Alaniz. During Alaniz’s freshman season with the Longhorns, he hurled the 19th no-hitter in school history on April 16th, 2005.

The next time the Longhorns take the field they’ll be running a new offense, but we don’t need to wait until then to get a glimpse at what it will look like. Rather than diagram a bunch of plays or compile clips of Tulsa or 2012 Eastern Illinois, I thought it might be useful to show examples of this year’s Texas tea...

Considering all factors – the unlikelihood that USC quarterback Max Wittek will be coming to UT; the starting quarterback is recovering from surgery; the second string QB hasn’t earned the fans’ loyalty; and the last option is a true freshman (albeit an All American one), the quarterback situation at Texas will be i...

http://www.HornSports.com/images/12mantamu.jpg After hearing one of the greatest stories in the history of college football, the story of the 12th Man as told by Texas A&M, I began to wonder why the tale wasn’t recited to every school-age boy. A rag-tag team from a farm school in Texas, playing the top-ra...

The point on a brisket is typically the fattiest cut. Pitmasters often trim the point (and select edges) off a brisket and return those pieces to the smoker. Are burnt ends tough, chewy worthless cuts of meat, or are they heavenly bites of smoky goodness? It depends on who you ask... Rather than discard the trimmi...

Not too long ago, some were legitimately worried about the ability of Tom Herman and his new staff’s ability to recruit. This past cycle, the new staff came in with limited time to work, had to pick up where Charlie Strong and his staff left off, and had to try to close some of the best recruits in the country. Not...
