There is not a college coach that would take Sam over Lawrence or Fields.

  8. Our top college football teams that failed to win the national championship 13. 2008 Texas (12-1) The 2008 season produced one of the most perfectly framed arguments of the BCS era. Texas beat Oklahoma 45-35, defeated an excellent Oklahoma State team and won nine other games by an average of 47-14. But the Longhorns lost an all-time thriller to Mike Leach and Texas Tech, and when OU obliterated that Tech team a few weeks later, it gave the Sooners the smallest of BCS formula edges. The two teams were almost perfect equals that year -- a best-of-seven series between them would seemingly go the distance every time -- but only one could advance, and it wasn't the Horns. So be it. But this team was dynamite. Colt McCoy completed 77% of his passes, Quan Cosby and Jordan Shipley combined for 2,183 receiving yards and Brian Orakpo spearheaded an opportunistic defense. The Horns would make the national title game the next year, but this was the better team https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29190742/our-top-college-football-teams-failed-win-national-championship
  9. It is disappointing, but not it's not a surprise. The combination of hiring practically a whole new staff that does not have the relationships with the 2021 recruits that other coaches from other schools have and the fact the Covid has kept the recruits off campus and the new coaches can't visit has really hurt.

  12. FIVE COLLEGE BASKETBALL WHOSE JOB MAY HAVE BEEN SAVED BY THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC Shaka Smart | Texas Maybe the Longhorns would have defeated Texas Tech in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Tournament, secured a spot in the NCAA Tournament and advanced in the Big Dance for the first time in Smart's five-year tenure. But there's also a chance they would have ended up on the wrong side of the bubble for the third time in his tenure if the season hadn't been canceled. If the Longhorns had missed the tournament and the economy was still doing well, it's hard to imagine that Smart would have gotten the vote of confidence from university leadership to return for a sixth season. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/five-college-basketball-coaches-whose-jobs-may-have-been-saved-by-the-coronavirus-pandemic/

  15. Winners and losers from the transfer portal Texas: The Longhorns’ wins largely occurred by convincing impact players (Denzel Okafor, Juwan Mitchell) to stay. But the addition of the talented (though oft-injured) Tarik Black brings some needed experience to the wide receiver room following the departures of Collin Johnson and Devin Duvernay. https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/College-football-transfer-portal-winners-losers-2019-2020-Florida-Miami-Florida-State-147141131/#147141131_8
  16. Fact or Fiction: OU is leaving Texas behind in recruiting 1. Texas is being left behind by Oklahoma in recruiting. Farrell’s take: FACT. The Longhorns are landing prospects, but when I see OklahoFact or Fiction: OU is leaving Texas behind in recruitingma reeling in five-stars like Mario Williams and four-stars like Clayton Smith while Texas adds more and more three-stars, it makes me wonder. Texas is ahead of OU in the Rivals team rankings with more commitments and the average star rating isn’t far off the Sooners, but let’s look at this — QB Caleb Williams is likely to commit and Oklahoma and the Sooners are involved and lead for many high rated prospects like Bryce Foster and others. If things pan out the way it appears it will, then OU will have a stronger recruiting year. And with the on field success already well ahead of Texas, that doesn’t bode well for Tom Herman and company. Gorney’s take: FICTION. There is no question Oklahoma remains a major problem for Texas on the field and in recruiting, but the Longhorns had a higher-rated recruiting class in 2020 and the Longhorns are doing just fine with in-state prospects in 2021. Five-star OL Tommy Brockermeyer should join the class and then the Longhorns could be the frontrunner for four-star RB LJ Johnson (although Oklahoma is probably the favorite for five-star RB Camar Wheaton , the top player in the state of Texas). The Sooners are doing great, but Texas is right there as well and certainly not being left behind. https://n.rivals.com/news/fact-or-fiction-ou-is-leaving-texas-behind-in-recruiting

  21. i didn't know that Tarik Black is future star. SIX COLLEGE FOOTBALL TEAMS WITH CHAMPIONSHIP-CALIBER ROSTERS THAT CAN RETURN THEM TO GREATNESS Texas Blue-chip ratio: 64% Game-changers: QB Sam Ehlinger, EDGE Ta'quon Graham Future stars: WR Tarik Black, QB Hudson Card Why they can win it all: Even though Texas hasn't won a Big 12 title -- let alone a national title -- since 2009, it still has all the resources to do so. Texas is a massive recruiting battleground state with no shortage of competition, but the Longhorns' blue-chip ratio remains one of the better ones among college football's elite programs. This season, they have a talented team with a few game-changers in key spots, including a veteran quarterback (Ehlinger) who puts up big-time numbers. What's holding them back: Underachieving has been Texas' biggest problem. This has been true in both on-field production -- the 2012 class, ranked No. 2 nationally, notoriously flamed out -- and in the draft. One of the most glaring examples was a stretch from 2009-17 when the 'Horns didn't have a single offensive lineman drafted. And the program was shut out entirely of the 2014 NFL Draft. But a more recent example came from the 2020 draft when none of the seven Texas-based players taken in the first round came from Texas or Texas A&M. The point being, Texas hasn't had a major issue getting blue-chip players. Rather, it's been turning them into title-caliber winners. Entering Year 4, coach Tom Herman has to start changing that. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/six-college-football-teams-with-championship-caliber-rosters-that-can-return-them-to-greatness/

  24. STAFF PICKS: WHO WILL BE THE MOST PRODUCTIVE QB IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL IN 2020? Chip Patterson: Sam Ehlinger, Texas The question is for "most productive" not "best" or "most popular," though I'd feel comfortable with my selection if we were only polling in the state of Texas. Ehlinger is the nation's leader among returning players for total offense, ranking No. 4 in the country a year ago with 332.8 yards per game. Ehlinger might be dealing with a change at offensive coordinator, but when the stage is the biggest, Tom Herman reflects shades of that Urban Meyer coaching tree with the commitment to putting the game in the hands of the quarterback. The four-year starter is going to carry a heavy load in the Texas offense, and that's going to help power another year of ranking in the top-five nationally in total offense. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/staff-picks-who-will-be-the-most-productive-college-football-quarterback-in-2020/
