  1. For those worried about injuries, read this article. Urban Meyer has some of the toughest practices in CFB. They call them "Bloody Tuesday." This results in some of the toughest mofos in college football. Worth the read. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.elevenwarriors.com/2012/08/13473/bloody-tuesday%3famp
  2. Here is the latest list of injuries for the Longhorns Sr S Jason Hall (concussion) Jr OL Terrell Cuney (concussion) Jr OL Elijah Rodriguez (high ankle sprain) So DE Malcolm Roach (turf toe sprain) Fr(RS) DL Andrew Fitzgerald (knee hyper extension) So RB Kyle Porter (shoulder sprain) Jr DB John Bonney (knee) Fr DB Josh Thompson (lower leg strain)
  3. Will Baizer and Joe Cook break down the last three commitments that Tom Herman has been able to wrap up. What do they mean for the class and for the program in general. Then they hit on the fall practices they've been to. It's been a tough few days under Tom Herman in full pads, and the injury list shows it. What do the injuries mean, how worried should fans be, and what else should fans take away from the practices.
  4. Beck and Kendall Moore will not be on the roster next year. Beck is a Senior and Kendall Moore is a grad transfer. Next year there will be three current TEs on the depth chart. Two of them sophomores and the other is Garrett Gray.
  5. As Daniel said above, Malcolm Epps possesses some insane ball skills and body control. He does an excellent job of catching the ball away from his body and bringing it in. He's a very big passing threat.
  6. Tim Beck: In terms of the scrimmage, Tim Beck told the media "We're looking for guys, in this stage as we're installing things... We're trying to just grasp, right now, effort, toughness, ball security. Those types of things... We know there are going to be some mistakes, but we want to play really hard right now." When asked who won the scrimmage, Tim Beck quipped, "We ended up running." The worst kept secret in the Texas program is that status of Shane Buechele as the likely starter. Tom Herman has been praising the young quarterback for his vocal and physical leadership rece
  7. Today we got to speak with Assoc. Head Coach and RB Coach Stan Drayton and Offensive Coordinator Tim Beck. Stan Drayton: The majority of the topics hit by Stan Drayton had to do with his running backs. When asked about how his general position looked he responded tentatively: "Day by day... We're still not timed up in the run game, yet. We definitely have to go to work in pass pro[tection] in regard to fundamentals and technique. But they're giving great efforts." In this new offense, blocking has been emphasized again and again by this coaching staff. Stan Drayton was asked to rate hi
  8. Today was faster than what we saw last Friday for the first day of full pads. I feel like that is expected. There was more tackle to ground and pads popping than we've seen thus far.
  9. No changes to the depth chart. Elijah Rodriguez is still the starting RT. We didn't get to see the beginning of practice today, but we did see: - Start with TEs blocking, OT chop blocks, OG hand placement, DBs picking up fumbles, DL sled, LB positioning, and QB/RB hand offs - QB and WR routes, 2v2 D vs O (TE&T vs LB&DE, T&G vs DT&DE) - Same with DBs covered by WRs. - CB&S vs WRs in routes and blocking The most noticeable thing was the popping of pads all practice. They let the boys fly and no one held back. Even Tom Herman got knocked to the ground. Reggie Hemphill came
  10. I've been hearing that Josh Thompson is show that he's the real during camp. Reese Leitao is also getting some praise. And everyone knows Taquon Graham has been making a name for himself this fall.
  11. Alabama won a National Championship because of their special teams. That was what got them over the edge vs a good Clemson team.
  12. Reese Leitao looks like he can put on weight, but looked good in the drills he ran in. Gary Johnson seems fast and well built. Not stocky, but well built. Good thing is that works well in the Big 12, but I'd like to see him in live action before I say he's good or he's bad. I actually haven't seen much of Delance this Fall. I think right now he's fallen a bit on the depth chart.
  13. I think the coaching staff is happy with Naashon right now. He appears to be one of the better run stoppers on the defense whereas McCulloch is apparently having troubles in that department. I think there will be a lot of mixing and matching them through out the year. As a fan, I don't think you should worry about who gets the 1st snap of the game and who gets the 2nd. The two are battling back and forth right now with no clear victor in sight.
  14. Tom Herman Quotes and Notes: Really really good day today. I was anticipating how we would respond to putting full pads on. Four really tough and long days leading up to it, and the guys came out with a lot of juice. It was hot. The last couple days we hadnt seen the sun very much, but the sun was beating down on us pretty good today. Credit to Coach McKnight and his staff. The defensive players in our tackle drill and our O-Line on our inside drill had much better pad level than they did in the Spring. Much better knee bend and hip explosion. We're not a finished product by any stretch o
  15. Today media got to sit in on the first full day of pads practice. Tom Herman has now had a bit of time to evaluate his team, and the depth chart has evolved a bit to show this. A few notes before the depth chart: The red stripes on the helmets represent newcomers to the team. However, fans may also notice that Shane Buechele has a stripe on his helmet. I was told this staff has put stripes on the helmets of each QB to see their vision lines on film. I have not seen other teams do this, but I think it's smart. The fatigue of the first week of practice is starting to become noticeable. Certai
  16. August 2nd Media Availability Notes: Today we talked with Tom Herman, Malik Jefferson, and Jerrod Heard. Tom Herman explained some of the concerns fans have with holding guys out of practice by stating, "We're being fairly conservative in terms of length of practice." He called this 5 week camp process a "5-week marathon." Good news for the Longhorns players as Tom Herman promised them that he will be allowing them to see the locker room for the first time tonight and use it prior to practice tomorrow "...if there are no issues." That means no trash anywhere, no missing water bottl
  17. As I understand it, they like Elijah Rodriguez, who played well in the 132 snaps he took last season. After surgery on his ankle over the summer, Shackelford will have to work his way back into a starting role whether it be center or guard.
  18. He got a case of the drops his Sophomore year. Now there is so much talent surrounding him it's a case of, "who do you want him to replace?" Honestly, I wouldn't put a ton of weight on this early depth chart right now. I assume it will change and maybe Burt can work his way back on. The WRs will be rotated often during games.
  19. The thinking behind this is that they like Naashon Hughes and Jeffrey McCulloch better at B-Backer. They like guys like Malik Jefferson and Gary Johnson at Rover. MLB will still be sent into the back field quite a bit in this defense. It's more a way of finding the best way to get him on the field.
  20. Just reiterating what Daniel said. Texas is currently focused on getting him on campus before day 1 of classes.
  21. He didn't look huge to me. Looked about normal height. Maybe a little short comparatively. Nothing noticeable. I'll take a harder look Friday.
