  1. My thoughts. 1. I have no idea if Sark will make it and get us where we want to go. 2. I think he does need at least 3-4 years more to attempt to get it fixed. Why you ask.. I have never started a thread like this and I really do not care who believes it etc. But here it goes. I am lucky enough to be good friend with several big time recruits parents right now. Here is a little feedback from them about the Texas program. Here are their thoughts 1. They think Sark is a good coach and can win here.. (they really like Sark) 2. Sark walked into a mess 3. Concerned fans and boosters will not give him time to fix it. Another coaching change scares them 4. The think the roster and culture is rotten. Bad players, bad mindset etc etc ( They think a ton of players need to leave) 5. Immediate playing time is important. 6. SEC move is good. Hook'em

  2. Hey, everyone. I have a couple of predictions. We will go 11-1 (OU will be the loss, but we will beat them in the championship game). I don't know why everyone is concerned about the first two games. This Longhorn team is loaded with a Heisman running back and NFL talent scattered all over the roster. We will beat the ever loving crap out of Lala and Arky both. The next prediction is we will be playing in the SEC next year. Trust me on this. In two years UT will be the second best team in the SEC and OU will be the third. aggy has some serious talent, but they are aggy and they always will be. When UT enters into the NIL competition we will be merciless and start stacking talent like it is cordwood. There - how is that for drinking the koolaide?

  3. Let's jump straight into it as the Longhorns moved to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in conference play. Steve Sarkisian was the first person to admit after the game that Texas was very sloppy at times today. The Longhorns settled for field goals far too often in the red zone and struggled mightily to get the passing game going. Despite all that, Texas was able to beat a team they were 2-7 against the previous 9 years. TCU made their fair share of mistakes as well, but this certainly felt like a game Texas would have lost in previous seasons. Bijan Robinson put the Texas offense on his back. The sophomore carried the ball 35 times for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He was the best player on the field and Steve Sarkisian showed no hesitation in putting the ball in his hands with the game on the line. If Robinson continues to build on what he's done through the first 5 games of the season, he should be in New York in December. The Texas receivers struggled today outside of Jordan Whittington. Xavier Worthy had several drops and was a non-factor for most of the afternoon and Joshua Moore was only able to catch 3 passes for 13 yards. Marcus Washington played a good amount and continues to show excellent effort as a blocker, but Texas will need more consistency from the position group moving forward to help out Casey Thompson. Speaking of Thompson, he experienced some struggles today for the first time in his career. He completed 12 of 22 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown along with a bad interception. The interception was a bad decision to throw into triple coverage down the field to Xavier Worthy. Worthy was being held on the play and it probably should have been a flag, but Thompson simply can not make that throw. He also forced several other throws into tight windows that could have been picked off. He did rebound nicely to throw a touchdown to Whittington on a RPO early in the 4th quarter. The Texas offensive line had an up and down day, but the biggest storyline was the injury to Denzel Okafor. Once Okafor went down, Kyle Flood opted to slide Derek Kerstetter inside to LG and insert Andrej Karic at RT. Karic had several nice blocks in the running game and appeared to play well off the bench. Pete Kwiatkowski and the Texas defense did enough to get the job done. The Longhorns forced 2 defensive turnovers (the 3rd turnover came on special teams) and should have had another when both DeMarvion Overshown and Luke Brockermeyer had their hands on a Max Duggan pass. Kwiatkowski appeared content with getting TCU to dink and dunk their way down the field while waiting for a mistake and limiting big plays. The plan worked for the most part as the Horned Frogs were unable to push the ball down the field through the air. The lone sack for the defense came on a strip sack from Anthony Cook on a beautifully called nickel blitz. Cook had another outstanding game and might be the best player in the Texas secondary right now. The defensive line was asked to contain Duggan for much of the game and try to shut down the running game with Zach Evans. Duggan's longest run of the day was 10 yards. Evans had a good game (15 carries for 113 yards) and probably should have received more touches. The one aspect the Texas defense is lacking right now is consistent pass rush from their edge players. It is not likely something that is going to change over the course of the season, so the coaching staff is going to have to make do and lean on their interior defensive line to try to get to the quarterback. Outside of Bijan Robinson, the MVP for the game should go to Cameron Dicker. The senior was 4/4 on field goals and also averaged 46.5 yards on his two punts. Dicker had been inconsistent to start the year, but Texas needed him to come through today and he delivered.

  5. View from the Cheap Seats ULaLa All Gas No Brakes What is likely the most significant off season in TEXAS Longhorn history opened with plenty of questions being answered by new Coach Steve “Sark” Sarkisian and his young charges. Not sure you could have scripted a better opening for Coach Sark, his brand new staff and the debut of Hudson Card. Let’s quickly start with the off season changes. As most are aware by now, TEXAS and Oklahoma shook the college football world by announcing they were joining the SEC. This announcement would come after TEXAS chose to fire Coach Tom “Mensa” Herman who had not done poorly, but he had not done well either. And after very publicly courting Urban Meyer who would bolt for the NFL, TEXAS would “settle” by plucking Coach Sark from the Bama staff, along with 3 other Bama coaches. The move to changes conferences that supposedly had been blocked for years (decades?) by the TEXAS administration was now seen as the most obvious move by a new AD, President and head of our board of Regents. Big time props to AD, CDC (now know by his initials), UT President Jay Hartzell and Board of Regent chair Kevin P. Eltife. History will be the judge of the wisdom of these moves but these men should be credited with the vision and courage to not stand with the status quo. ACES. So 2 quick digs at our friends down in College Station before we get into Sat's game. 1st, as great as the news of the move from the lackluster BigXII to the SEC was to real CFB fans, almost as joyous was listening to the howls and whines of our former “rival” (how much of a rival are you really when you lost 3/4ers of the games you play?) who realized they were going right back into the shadow of TEXAS. It was interesting that Aggie would also give Jimbo Fisher a raise after going 33-16 over 4 years, failing to win 10 games in a season and not even winning their division. TEXAS would fire their head coach who would go 32-18 over 4 years, producing a 10 win season and playing for the conference title. The standards are not the same Back to the game at hand TEXAS opened their season facing a Nationally ranked opponent that returned 20 of 22 starters from last year, a team which finished the year with a well-deserved Top 25 ranking. This is a team that upset Iowa State in the opener last year. This was also the game many pundits picked as their ”upset special” to kick off the season. Coach Sark and company would put the quick kibosh on that, jumping out to a 14-6 half time lead and never looking back. TEXAS would open the season forcing a 3 and out then registering their own 3 and out. . . .TEXAS would then go long TD drive, long missed FG drive then long TD drive to take a 14-6 half time lead. Did you read that right? Only 4 drives in the 1st half? Get used to Sark’s ball control offense where he’ll change plays at the line but will eat up much of the clock on every play. While the motto is “All gas no brakes”, this is not an up tempo offense many are used to seeing. To highlight that ball control, TEXAS would convert 10 of 15 chances on 3rd down. Not that Sark will not go uptempo from time to time, something he did several times in the game to keep the LaLa D off balance. If we were to pick one word for this offense? Methodical. Speaking of “methodical”, after the opening 3 and out, TEXAS would score or attempt to score, missed FG on drive #3, on every drive it had until the very last drive of the game where TEXAS was simply trying to run out the clock. Along the way, Coach Sark showed why he was so highly regarded and such a desirable candidate for the job. He put his talented players in a position to succeed and when asked to, his players made plays. The difference in not just play calling but play design as well. We’ll focus on BiJan’s 1st TD pass. TEXAS lines up with 2 tight ends tight on the left side of the formation with no WR to that side and BR in the backfield. Both TEs run routes into the center of the field, the Corner back follows the TEs leaving BR wide open to leak out into the flat where he outruns the D to the end zone. Of course nothing helps a play caller more than talented players and in BiJan Robinson TEXAS is blessed with a dynamic ball carrier with the power to break tackles as well as the quickness to leave defenders trying to find their underwear on the field. Think larger, stronger version of Jamaal Charles. As we saw at the end of last year, BR will be a special RB for TEXAS if he can stay healthy. The biggest story of the off season (on the field) was who would win the job as QB1 for the Horns. Hudson Card served notice the job was his while he lived up to advanced billing with a very impressive performance. Through one game, he showed why he deserved QB1 status. He delivered a calm, cool demeanor, frequently extending plays displaying good elusiveness in the pocket. He certainly displayed a “live arm” with pinpoint throws. He reminds us of another redshirt freshman QB, Colt McCoy, who enjoyed an on field maturity beyond his years. Not to mention a frame that could use another 10-15 pounds of muscle. Card did something not sure many noticed, when he scrambled, he kept his eyes down field. He never lost awareness of what was going on and where his targets were. Just one game but Card did everything he was asked including not turning the ball over.' Applaud Coach Sark for getting Casey Thompson into the game late in the 3rd and giving him the entire 4th quarter. Move should pay big dividends. He also managed to get RB3 Kelian Robinson plenty of snaps and he responded with a 5.1 ypc performance. Not everything was wine and roses. The TEXAS offensive line gave up 4 sacks on the day. Having watched the OU game with their DL wrecking havoc on the Tulane offense at times, this is a concern. Largely the only negative we can find with the offense but it’s pretty important one. While not as impressive or dominate as the O, the D acquitted itself well and we think Coach K is going to pay strong dividends. Without blitzing much, the TEXAS D contained a very good LaLa offense. Of particular note was limiting 5th year Senior QB Levi Lewis to his worst game in 2 years. A true dual threat QB, one of the big concerns was not letting Lewis beat the Horns with his legs. La La was never able to establish their run game and by the 2nd half, they became largely 1 dimensional. La La did manage 2 long drives in the 2nd half but by then the game was largely out of reach. Offensive Player of the game: #1 BiJan Robinson. 176 total yards from scrimmage, 2 TDs and showed off both great cutting ability, great power and great speed. #2 Hudson Card. 177 QB rating on a 14 for 21 224 yard night with 2 passing TDs to go with a rushing TD and not INTs. Well done young man. #3 Jordan Whittington J-Witt to his friends. 7 catches 113 yards and a TD. Defensive Player of the game Co D-MVPs, DeMarvion Overshown & Luke Brockemeyer would record 24 tackles (8 solo) and 2 sacks combined. Stats that matter 5-5 Red Zone scoring and 4 of 5, 4 TDs and 1 FG. 10-15 3rd down conversion rate. 4-13 LaLa’s 3rd down conversion rate, 0-9 through 3 quarters. 4/3 Good news bad news. We gave up 4 sacks and recorded 3. 7-64 Penalties on TEXAS. Will be a coaching focus this week 177 Hudson Card's QB rating through game 1 On Deck So Sark faces an early coaching challenge. He takes the Horns on the road to visit old SWC rival (now this a real rivalry) Arkansas who will be sky high for the game. His young team will be tested in a very hostile environment as the fans. Arkie’s QB is a big guy, 250 lbs and more known for being a rusher not passer. Avoid turnovers, take an early lead and another methodical game will be next week’s keys to victory. Ranking the BigXII Big Dog 1 Oklahoma. Lots of teams guilty of reading their press clippings/eating the cheese, OU appeared to be one of them. OU’s front is scary, their secondary not so much. They remain #1 until someone knocks them off their perch Chasing the title 2 TEXAS Great debut for Sark over a ranked opponent. Best BigXII win of the weekend 3 ISU Speaking of eating the cheese, expect ISU to be formidable and improve from a lackluster performance vs a good FCS level school 4 TCU Strong showing vs a tomato can. TEXAS BigXII opener 5 KSU Looked good vs Stanford. 2nd best BigXII win of the weekend 6 OSU Did not look good beating an FCS opponent, Mizzu State Also rans 7 TT Beat Cougar High 8 WVU Lost to Maryland, shades of Mensa 9 Kansas Eeked out a win vs FCS opponent (sensing a week 1 pattern?) 10 Baylor Did not look good beating FCS opponent Texas State Way too early playoff picks: #1 Bama Stop me if you have heard this before, new QB, New OC. . .same ole Bama #2 tOSU Best of the rest but a step below Bama #3 Dawgs Hard to believe Clemson and Dawgs would play a game without scoring an offensive TD #4 Field is open.

  6. Watch this commercial just past the Doritos "Bold" logo at the end for this to really make sense. My buddy Dave Vabora created the Adaptive Training foundation after his NFL career He was Mr Irrelevant in 2008, drafted by the St Louis Rams. He would finish his career at Seattle. Incredible guy. Many of the people in the video are friends.

  10. At what point will people realize how absurd society has become? The song is not racist in any form or fashion. There is no end to “things” that were subverted by ignorant people of the past. Why do we continue to let those people shape our future. Our University did not accept African Americans until 1956. Do we shut down the University because it was most definitely racist prior to that time? The Eyes of Texas is supposed to remind us of OUR University family and the bond we ALL share. Our family is Burnt Orange and that is the only color that should matter to anyone. People who try and make it about any other color are racist.

  12. You listen to Bijan’s words from the press conference today and I will say again, this kid is not only one of the best running backs in college football but he’s one of the best people. Paraphrasing here but He said he is really big on sticking to his word and he gave Texas his word and he is going to stand behind it. Went around and shook hands with every reporter after the press conference. He begged to stay in the game…..with a dislocated elbow……..because his team needed him. Prayed with Ehlinger on the sidelines last year in the Colorado game when Sam got hurt. This kids parents have ALOT to be proud of. Takes pictures with fans. He’s the face of this program and rightfully so.

  20. I know i may be a sunshine pumper, but im also a realist that knows it takes a little time to rebuild a program. I know we said this under Strong and under Herman, but this feels a little different. Nick Saban went 7-6 in year 1 at Bama, Dabo Swinney went 9-5 and then 6-6 in his 1st 2 years. Once they got their players those programs took off. Does it suck to take losses as a fan? hell yes. I do wish this team wouldve magically been a CC team this year, but this is basically the same team that got a coach fired last year. It definitely is a team missing their 4 year QB leader who willed some wins last year. Say all you want about the last 10 years, but this just feels different to me. I think this staff knows what they need and I do believe they will get there. It just may not be on the timeline we we're all unrealistically hoping for. This is a process and I'm staying the course as a fan. I really do think it will be worth the wait

  21. Feels like recruiting is gonna be dead until the season gets going and we still have a couple of weeks til then. Thought it would be cool to hear everyone's bold predictions for this year. Not the realistic ones, but your out on the limb ones for this season. I'll start with 4: 1. Casey Thompson starts all year and throws for 3400 yards, 25 tds and 6 INTs. 2. Bijan Robinson rushes for 1400 YDs, 400 YDs rec and 16 total TDs 3. Texas finishes the reg season with a 10-2 record with losses to OU and WVU (they win in Ames but drop a stupid game somewhere else). 4. OU and UT play in the B12 Championship. Game is a toss up because the refs don't know which team to penalize the most. Afterwards, the winning team refuses to accept the B12 trophy. Both teams leave the stadium in their SEC decorated bus and drive off, never to be seen in the B12 again. Bowlsby is found 3 days later in a local motel:

  25. I don't think that is a fair comment at all. He was a competitor all year, gave his all and played through an injured thumb. We wouldn't have been as competitive without him this last year, yet he got plenty of criticism from many fans. If you saw the photos of his thumb and thought about the difficulty of stepping up and playing, but not getting the support from the fans, most people would likely leave. I don't believe for a moment that he is afraid of quarterback competition. My hats off to the guy and I thank him

  31. I'm still drinking the kool-aid on Sark even though I must admit he wouldn't have been my first choice. Look at it this way, if Foster and Schooler are the 2 best safeties on this team, is that Sark's fault? Schooler is a converted safety, from which makes the missed INT even more frustrating. Foster, who many on here have stated, gets beat a lot. This team was doing pretty good until Casey hurt his thumb. I believe the offense was covering up a weak defense. There are some studs, Bijan for one, that Sark inherited but not many. And yes I know he stated there was talent on this team when he took over but what else did you expect him to say? Anything else and he would have lost the team right then and there.

  32. I didnt get to watch the game live but taped it and watched it later. Bijan is an absolute gamer. The kid has to be tired and sore as hell. I would take 1 Bijan over 100 Zach Evans anyday. Besides being a gifted runner he is very humble and great personality and smile. We are lucky to have him. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite longhorns of all time. I wasnt sold on Sark in the beginning but I appear to be wrong. Hes cool and calm and looks to be the right person for the job. I enjoy watching his conferences. Atleast he isn't that 8 year old Herman. Wasnt a pretty win and turnovers made the difference. I was a little disappointed in the passing game and Worthy but shrug it off and get ready for the spooners. A win is a win especially against that head case Patterson and TCU. To top it off sheep shaggers lost so I am basking in the glow today.

    ARKANSAS: A Little History

    No Longhorn should travel to a Longhorn vs Razorback game without a little history of the rivalry. During my time as a student at Texas, we flew into Arkansas twice, and both trips were eventful. Once our flight home (a charter) was delayed because one of our group was in an Emergency Room. Why, you might ask? We were delayed because one of our group was injured as we marched out of Razorback Stadium by trash which included, partially eaten fruit, soft drinks, beer bottles, etc. It was a broken beer bottle that cut the skin, so close to the eye, that doctors said a fraction of an inch closer would have resulted in lost vision in one eye for the injured person. If driving during that time, it was important to get gas BEFORE one crossed the Texas border. The Hog fans wouldn’t sell gas to Texas fans. Hopefully that has changed since chain stores have virtually taken over gasoline sales. However, it can’t hurt to gas up before you cross the border. Bevo and Smokey had difficulty making the trip due to gasoline shortages. Regardless of those difficulties, expect the fan base to be a very diverse group. Some will be polite and well-spoken, but others will be crazy, uneducated hillbillies. Some of whom are probably the same fools who threw trash at us as we left their stadium in victory. By the way, followed that incident, DiNino said he would not take the LHB back to Arkansas. Since DKR made it clear that he wanted the LHB with the team when they traveled, DiNino only relented when the President of the university of Arkansas wrote a letter of apology to The University of Texas. Be ready, and Hook ‘em!

  36. I will say this . . . Texas may lay out an announcement around or after the OU game. It may or may not be in conjunction with OU but Texas will announce we are paying the exit fees to the Big 12 to join the SEC in 2022. Can't speak for OU but everyone seems to think they will pay too. I've seen this spoken of at TFB and my buddy down in Austin has said as much as well. If this happens, there will be 1-3 recruits who will commit or flip to us. At least one of them is a 5-star.

  37. 1. If Thompson puts up those numbers, he'll be All-Big 12. Only 6 INTS? Thats pretty good even for a veteran. I don't get to see the practices and even if I did, I trust Sark much more than my own expertise. I will be happy with Thompson or Card, either way. I'm glad its being settled on the field. I think in this day and age, if you don't have two quality QBs, you're in for some trouble. It takes two to get through a season. 2. I think you're right on Bijan. Kid will have a big year. 3. I agree with 10-2 (11-2 with bowl win). But I see the losses at Iowa State and Okie State. We beat OU. We are due and we will finally be equal in coaching to what is on the other side. 4. LOL My own stuff . . . . 1. Omeire will be a key WR for us. Every team needs a possession guy. Say hi to Mr Possession Guy. 2. The new RB from Bama will make use particularly dangerous offensively. The speed will be noticeable. 3. Our LBs won't be the Achilles heel most writers are claiming they will be. Front 7 is solid. 4. For the first time in quite a while, we are going into a season with a decent OL and quality depth. 5. Jamison will have at least two TD kick returns this year.

  39. As TCU headed into the bottom of the 9th against Kansas State holding a 8-4 lead, Texas was in cruise control against West Virginia in the 6th inning as the Longhorns held a 10-1 lead. It likely wasn't going to matter though, as the Horned Frogs were 3 outs away from clinching the outright Big 12 title and finishing a full game ahead of Texas in the standings. Everything changed though in a span of about 15 minutes. The Wildcats exploded against TCU's best reliever, Haylen Green, eventually ending the game on a 3-run walk-off home run by Chris Ceballos. The comeback win was met with a huge cheer at Disch-Falk Field and gave Texas the Big 12 title. Here are some thoughts and takeaways from a wild final day of the regular season: While it was technically a "shared" Big 12 title with the Horned Frogs, the Longhorns were certainly treated as the winners of the conference. David Pierce and his team received a trophy following the run-rule victory over the Mountaineers and will be the #1 seed in the Big 12 tournament since Texas owned the tiebreaker over TCU. It is Pierce's 2nd conference title in his 5 years at the helm. The conference title certainly puts the cherry on top of Texas' already impressive resume heading into postseason play. The Longhorns were pretty much a lock for a national seed regardless of what happened in Manhattan, but the Horned Frogs collapse should leave no doubt. Texas will now head to OKC for the Big 12 tournament. Their first game will be Wednesday against the winner of the Kansas/West Virginia play-in game (4 PM CST on Big 12 Now). The tournament format is split up into two 4-team double elimination brackets, with the winners of each bracket meeting for the championship game (the championship game will be a single game, winner-take-all, regardless if one of the teams enter with no losses in the tournament). To be honest, the Longhorns do not have much to prove in OKC. While it would be nice to win some games, the main focus will be getting arms fresh and ready for the regional the following weekend. The 2018 Texas team that went to Omaha went 0-2 in OKC and it has been proven in the past that success in the conference tournament does not always translate to the NCAA tournament. This brings us to a few things that Texas will be looking to accomplish over the next week: If Texas hopes to go far in the NCAA tournament, 4th starter Kolby Kubichek will likely be needed at some point. Kubichek served as the Sunday starter for much of the season before giving way to Pete Hansen. David Pierce hinted last week that Kubichek would likely start game 1 of the conference tournament, and a strong performance from the right-hander will have the Texas coaching staff feeling really good heading into regional play. This is the most exciting time of the year in college baseball. The Longhorns will be a top 5 overall seed next Monday when the field is announced and their road to Omaha will not require them to leave the friendly confines of Disch-Falk Field.
