  1. I had a chance to talk to Connor and his dad today on their drive home from UT, post-OV. Can't tell you how impressed I am with him, his family and who they are as humans. You guys have all heard that he is a Texas A&M legacy, and the fact that he chose to commit to Texas truly says something about what he feels Sarkisian is building at Texas. The decision to play at Texas was Connor's, with his dad Nick and his mom and the rest of his family in full support. I mentioned in the commitment post that choosing A&M would have been the easy decision, but Texas was on him early and often (offering him before the Oklahoma State game last season) and it REALLY made an impression. I was told that heading into his trimmed list of 5 schools (Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Texas A&M & Texas), that Texas was the school to beat. After his visits to 4 of the 5 of those schools, followed by his last OV which was to Texas, the Longhorns were still #1 on his list. If you have kids, you know what it means to want the best for them and to support them unconditionally What I admire about the Stroh family other than their incredible integrity, is their unconditional support of their son. Imagine if you and your wife and extended family members all went to Texas.... and your son ended up committing to play football at Texas A&M. Would you wear maroon in his support? Expect the Stroh family to wear burnt orange in support of Connor, despite the negative things you may read about them on message boards of schools that didn't land his commitment. I've seen some nasty comments, which is hard to digest.... College football is awesome and if I had the good fortune to watch my kid play at a D1 school, you can bet your ass I would wear his school colors. I'm looking forward to watching Stroh’s development, as he will be an integral part of the Texas offensive line in years to come.
  2. Complete head-scratcher to me as to why Sean Allen was let go - makes no sense. Allen and Pierce are attached at the hip and have been for many, many years. My guess is this wasn’t David Pierce’s decision whatsoever, but rather he was forced to make a change from someone(s) at a higher level. Two straight trips to the CWS is impressive (yes, even for Texas). It is not a given for any team to make it to Omaha. Hell, Mississippi State won it all last year and failed to even play in a regional this year (first time this has happened to the Bulldogs since 2015). With Tulo likely going West and Allen now gone, Pierce is going to have to step up the recruiting efforts immensely. For the fanbase that thinks this season was a disappointment, it can get a whole lot worse. Allen will get picked up soon elsewhere and will do well, as he has everywhere he has coached.
  3. Mitch is covering the games for HornSports in Omaha, just FYI. He arrived late this afternoon @Mitch Lovell

  5. The Longhorns head to Ames, Iowa this week to face the Cyclones and hope to avoid a four-game losing streak by leaving Ames with a win. Matt Campbell and Iowa State own a two-game win streak against Texas, and they also have a nine-game winning streak against Big 12 opponents at home. The task for the Longhorns will be to limit running back Breece Hall, the Big 12's leading rusher (averaging 123 yards per game), while ensuring Casey Thompson has success and time to make passes downfield. The Cyclones rank 15th in the nation in total defense, which means Steve Sarkisian's offensive game plan needs to be multi-dimensional and full of wrinkles. Both teams are reeling from losses, with Texas losing in Waco to the Bears 31-24 and Iow State losing at West Virginia 38-31. What: Texas Longhorns (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) vs Iowa State Cyclones (5-3, 3-2 Big 12) Venue: Jack Trice Stadium Location: Ames, Iowa When: Saturday, November 6th, 2021 Time: 6:30 p.m. (CST) TV: FS1 On the Call: Aaron Goldsmith, Mark Helfritch All-Time Series: Texas leads Iowa State 14-4 Last Meeting: Iowa State defeated Texas 23-20 (11/27/2020 Austin, TX) Relevant Information: Depth Chart: Texas vs Iowa State Scouting Report: Iowa State Cyclones Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Iowa State Four Things To Watch for on Saturday as Texas Heads To Ames
