  1. Former Texas head coach Tom Herman has found a landing place after his release by Texas in early January. Announced today, the Chicago Bears have hired Herman as an offensive analyst (with the title Offensive Analysts/Special Projects). The move to the NFL is the first for Herman, who went 32-18 while leading the Texas program for four seasons.
  2. Just hours after firing Tom Herman after 4 years as head coach at Texas, the University of Texas hired Alabama offensive Coordinator Steve Sarkisian to replace him. Sarkisian will serve in his third head coaching position, with previous stints at the University of Washington (2009-2013) and USC (2014-2015). He played QB at El Camino College and BYU and served in the NFL as QB coach with the Oakland Raiders (2004) and OC of the Atlanta Falcons (2017-2018). Sarkisian, the 2020 Broyles Award winner, has spent the last two years with the Alabama Crimson Tide as the Offensive Coordinator
  3. Sam closes his collegiate career ranked second on UT record in completions (923), passing yards (11,436), total offense (13,343), passing touchdowns (94), and total touchdowns responsible for (127). Ehlinger also ranks second among Longhorn quarterbacks in rushing touchdowns (33) and third in rushing yards (1,907).
  4. Story by Dina Colunga Three key recruits in the class of 2020 have announced their top schools and the Texas Longhorns are in the running to nab all but one in Prince Dorbah, Ryan Watts, and Myles Slusher. The Texas Longhorns are coming off their best season in years and it is impressing the class of 2020. After hauling in the No. 1 recruiting class in the Big 12 and the No. 3 class in the nation for 2019, the Longhorns are looking to keep their spot among the clouds with next year’s group of players. So far, coach Tom Herman and the Longhorns have four commits for 2020 in Hudso
  5. Keep your prayers up for running back signee Derrian Brown. He was hospitalized following a rather serious medical situation. Out of respect for Derrian and his family, that’s all we can disclose at this time. Keep Derrian in your prayers.
  6. Texas quarterback Shane Buechele reportedly informed the Texas staff today that he will enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. This would be a big loss to the Longhorns’ quarterback room, as Casey Thompson and Cam Rising are also already in the portal. Buechele would be a graduate transfer and immediately eligible to play. SMU is the perceived favorite, especially with former starting QB Ben Hicks transferring to Arkansas this offseason. The news was first reported by Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods.
  7. This one is a little more unique, but not all that surprising. Rowland was unseated by freshman Cameron Dicker this season, and probably wasn’t going to see the field afterwards. Rowland had a shaky career at Texas, after signing with the Longhorns as the top kicker in the JUCO ranks. In his career at Texas, Rowland hit just 61% of his FG attempts (11/18), but nailed all of his XP attempts. Rowland gained the reputation of being shaky from 40+ yards, which is why Tom Herman went for it on fourth down so much in 2017; it costed Texas some games. Rowland is a senior and a likel
  8. InsideTexas is reporting that Texas RBs Kyle Porter and Tristian Houston are entering the Transfer Portal. Porter mentioned earlier in the season that he may redshirt to preserve another season of eligibility. Houston has not received much playing time, if any, during his tenure at Texas. The potential transfers of both Porter and Houston is not surprising, but it does not bode particularly well for Texas' running back depth. If Porter and Houston both transfer out, here is what the potential depth chart could look like in 2019: 1. Keaontay Ingram (Soph.) 2. Daniel Young (Juni
  9. Spring football is coming. Texas officially announced today that the annual Spring Game will commence on April 13. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. at DKR. Entry is free for fans of all ages.
  10. Casey Thompson is taking his name out of the NCAA Transfer Portal and will remain at Texas. The freshman quarterback is in line to compete with freshman Roschon Johnson for the No. 2 spot behind Sam Ehlinger in 2019. Shane Buechele and Cam Rising still have intentions to transfer. Would be great news for the Longhorns and add depth to a thinning QB room. 1/17 UPDATE: Thompson took to Twitter to announce he has not made any decision, refuting the report. 1/18 UPDATE: Thompson reportedly has informed the staff that he’s staying, per Anwar Richardson. Waiting for an official announceme
  11. No surprise here, but the four-star Mansfield Legacy prospect committed to Arkansas over Texas this afternoon. Texas fought as hard as it could, but Catalon’s family had too much influence in this one. Catalon would have been an ideal fit for nickel in Todd Orlando’s defense. Fortunately, the Longhorns aren’t hurting in the defensive secondary depth-wise.
  12. Texas officials confirmed that Cam Rising has left the program and will transfer. With the news that Thompson is likely staying, the blow hurts a little less. Make no mistake, however, Rising was very talented and probably would have taken the reigns once Ehlinger was done.
  13. The highly-coveted grad transfer from Alabama has decided to take his talents to Norman in 2019. This is an interesting choice, as Hurts does not really fit Riley's offensive scheme. Also of note, Riley told 2019 QB signee Spencer Rattler that he was not going to take any quarterback transfers. Hurts is undoubtedly an update to the QB room after the departure of Kyler Murray, however. The scene from Dallas will be interesting nonetheless in October.
  14. The saga in the Texas quarterback room just got more interesting. Several weeks ago, Cam Rising and Casey Thompson both entered their names into the NCAA Transfer Portal. Since that time, Tom Herman has worked furiously to keep both in Austin. It appeared that Herman’s efforts were paying off with Thompson, but Rising has elected to explore other options. If Texas wants to keep the talented redshirt freshman in the fold, it will have to start re-recruiting him to stay in Austin. Otherwise, he may move back closer to home. The news was first reported by Alex Markham of UteNation.com.
  15. The word "alignment" is thrown around a lot by Texas head coach Tom Herman, and it appears Texas football will remain aligned heading into the 2019 season. Herman reportedly informed his staff recently that each member will be retained for next football season. With former Kansas head coach David Beaty on the market after being fired earlier in the season, there was speculation that Herman would at least fire one staff member to make room for Beaty and his positive recruiting reputation in the DFW area. This news means that the following coaches will be retained: Tim Beck, Todd Orlando, S
  16. Ask and you shall receive. You guys really want to get this going early, huh? Texas opened as 11-point underdogs to Georgia, but the line will shrink some. This will be a great way to measure just how improved the Horns are. Get your picks in, ya filthy animals.
  17. BY JAMESON MCCAUSLAND Following a loss in the Big 12 Championship, the Longhorns were rewarded with a trip to Sugar Bowl to face SEC runner-up Georgia. If not for a collapse against Alabama, the Bulldogs would have been playing in the College Football Playoff. Head Coach Kirby Smart learned under Nick Saban for years, so it is not surprising Georgia prides itself on great defense, but the Bulldogs offense also presents some unique challenges for the Texas defense. Let’s take a look at the Georgia offense: Quarterback Georgia boasts one of the best young quarterbacks in the coun
  18. Texas came up short today against the Sooners. The Longhorns had plenty of opportunities, but couldn't capitalize. Texas fought hard, but ultimately Kyler Murray and the Oklahoma offense did just enough to get the win in Arlington. Texas will now have to wait and see where it will go bowling later in December. They are destined for either the Alamo Bowl against Utah/Washington State or the Sugar Bowl against Georgia, Florida, or LSU (depending on the results of the SEC Championship. Here are some thoughts about the game. Lack of run production It's hardly ever great when your quarterb
  19. Texas faces Oklahoma more than once in a single season for the first time since 1903. In their first meeting, the Longhorns played spoiler to Oklahoma's undefeated season and came out on top 48-45 thanks to a last-second field goal by Cameron Dicker. The rematch means much more, however. Texas once again has a chance to play spoiler; this time, it can spoil Oklahoma's chances to attend the College Football Playoff. Oklahoma has solidified itself as the No. 1 offense in the country, but the Texas is much improved since the two teams last met in October. Our staff weighs in on the possibility of
  20. This is not part of the Coop Gift Card sweepstakes, which ended with Kansas. This is simply for fun. Get your picks in!
  21. BY JAMESON MCCAUSLAND The Good McCulloch and Ossai When it was announced prior to kickoff that Gary Johnson was suspended for a violation of team rules, it meant Jeff McCulloch would slide over to the rover linebacker position and freshman Joseph Ossai would make his first career start at B-backer. Both played very well, with McCulloch pulling down a huge interception and being very active in the run game. Ossai showed many of the traits that made him a highly rated recruit in the 2018 cycle. Many fans are beginning to wonder what Texas will do at linebacker next year without Jo
  22. With a trip to the Big 12 Championship on the line, Texas travels to Lawrence to turn an opportunity into reality. Last time the Longhorns traveled to Lawrence... well, we don't need to get into that. With Sam Ehlinger back at quarterback, Texas is surely feeling confident about its chances. The Longhorns must be careful, however, as Kansas truly has nothing to lose. Our staff predicts the result of the final regular season game: Daniel Seahorn (5-6) This one is pretty straight forward. Win on Friday and the Longhorns are heading to the Big 12 title game and are a step closer to re-em
  23. Last game of the regular season, which means after this, we will find out who our $100 Coop Gift Card winner is! Get your picks in.
  24. Defensive Line Defensive tackle Daniel Wise may be the best player on the Kansas defense. Wise has 4 sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss on the season. Zach Shackelford, Patrick Vahe and Elijah Rodriguez held up very well against a tough Iowa State defensive line, so it’s hard to imagine Wise giving them too much trouble. Whenever the Kansas defensive line is matched up against at least an average offensive line, they have played poorly. Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Texas Tech imposed their will at the line of scrimmage. It would be surprising if Texas wasn’t able to do the
  25. Breckyn Hager has been publicly reprimanded by the Big 12 for his negative comments about OU following Saturday's win, Commissioner Bob Bowlsby announced today. “Breckyn Hager violated the Conference rule that prohibits coaches, student-athletes, athletic department staff and university personnel from making negative comments about other member institutions for his remarks about the University of Oklahoma,” said Bowlsby. “This is Mr. Hager’s second violation of the Conference sportsmanship rules and therefore, he is receiving a public reprimand and will be expected to issue a public apo
