  1. Georgia is a playoff team and one of top four teams in the country they said. Georgia is going to run all over Texas and it won’t be close they said. Georgia is too physical and defense is nonexistent in the Big 12 they said. THEY were dead wrong. Texas entered this contest a two touchdown dog to the Bulldogs from Athens, Georgia, and if you listened to the talking heads this game was over before the teams ever took the field. Just about everyone seemingly had written off the Longhorns having a chance in this matchup. That is just about everyone except the team itself. While Bevo c
  2. IMO, we could be venturing into territory whereby this current class can be compared favorably to the best UT class ever. As far as I know, the Chris Simms class has been widely regarded as our best ever. If we land White, Ossai, Waddle, etc., it might be worth a comparison. We can't make the complete comparison yet, but we can start. Daniel, do you have a good idea of what we can use as a barometer against the two? Total points? Stars?
  3. Texas (1-1, 0-0) will travel to Los Angeles on Saturday to take on USC (2-0, 1-0). The Trojans enter the game coming off an impressive win against Stanford, 42-24. Let’s take a look at what USC has on defense and special teams: Defensive Line The USC defense will operate out a 3-4 look. The nose tackle position is held down by former junior college standout Josh Fatu. Fatu has already recorded 2 tackles for loss and a sack in 2017. The end positions are occupied by Rasheem Green and Malik Dorton. Green was an honorable mention All-PAC 12 member in 2016 and had an excellent game last
  4. Brutal news for the offensive line. Hudson needed all the reps he could get and now he will miss the rest of the year.
  5. The Terrapins beat the Longhorns 51-41 on Saturday at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium to open the Tom Herman era on the 40 Acres. Let’s take a look at how the Texas defense and special teams graded in the loss to Maryland. Defensive Line Early on, it looked like the Texas defense was going to have its way with the Terrapins. The defensive line played well on the first drive of the game, but after that everything went downhill. Poona Ford played well, taking on double teams and opening up lanes for the linebackers to come down and make plays, but the lineback
  6. It all began with his tweet after the spring game. "Could've told my mother to save her money on the plane ticket". Half of a game after being called on account of rain, or a subtle blast to the fact he didn't sniff the field? I don't know, but I believe, when it comes to a young guy who wants his shot, it was the latter. When Buechele became the obvious nod to the future with Ehlinger on deck at QB, I knew Locksley was going to have to change positions or transfer. Then it was even more evident when Heard got moved to WR, where a stable of capable guys was already in place. Now, I d
  7. Everyone knows by now, Horns @ Jayhawks kicks off at 2:30 p.m. I'll be in Lawrence by 9:30 a.m., parked in lot 54 with beer in hand by no later than 10 a.m. Who else will be making the trip? I know I had another topic started months ago about this and some of you commented/confirmed you'll be there. Since it's game week, I figure I'll ignite that convo again. Who is gonna be in Lawrence to watch Texas become bowl eligible?
  8. "Hey, man! This Shane Buechele kid is somethin' special! And I tell ya what, man - this talent on this Texas team?! Hook 'Em Horns, man!" I don't know why, but anyone and everyone who doesn't follow this program thinks this is a realistic replacement candidate. Reasons: A.) Gruden still wants to coach, but on his terms. Meaning, it has to basically be a hand picked situation, not just any job. -Ok. I believe that theory. Most successful coaches at his age, with his resume, etc. Have that luxury. It's not a crazy concept. B.) Gruden has wanted to coach college ball, burnt o
  9. Charlie Strong met with the media on Monday following a 41-7 victory over the UTEP Miners on Saturday evening. Here are some highlights from today's press conference. Strong highlighted the defense and their ability to get off of the field as a crucial component to Texas' upcoming matchup against Cal. Strong mentioned that this weekend is a "business trip" and that "playing good defense can take a home crowd out of the game." On the negative side, Strong mentioned that he is "very concerned" about penalties. After Saturday's game, Texas currently ranks 5th in the FBS for total penalty yard
  10. The early spread is Notre Dame -4.5. Buying or selling? I think it's going to be a close game. Up here in Indiana, every Irish fan talks a lot about last year's 38-3 nightmare. In fact, it's all they'll talk about. I don't know if they're just not paying attention to the current rosters, trending topics coming out of each camp, or what, but they don't see to care about anything other than last year's result, ignoring the ESPN FPI almost putting this game at a 50/50 toss up. Add that to the fact Notre Dame lost huge playmakers from last season on both sides of the ball while Texas has had an en
  11. As an NFL draft nerd, I love watching tape on players going into the draft and tonight I've been watching all i can find on Vaccaro. But when watching Vaccaro, Diggs stood out the me multiple times by breaking on the ball nicely. At the same time, Josh Turner and Mykelle Thompson often delayed before breaking on the pass or made poor tackles that led to big gains. I think Quandre Diggs moving to safety is a must. He is a very smart player on the field and reads the quarterback and receivers well. We all know the difference a good safety can have on a defense. In most recent years, Earl Th
  12. @TheFbBrainiacs: BREAKING: Have heard from two good sources that Nick Saban to Texas is a done deal. Will be making big bucks! The website is a page devoted to ou recruiting. It also has Ryan Broyles on its staff. http://thefootballbrainiacs.com/nick-saban-to-texas-appears-to-be-a-done-deal Take it as you will.
  13. HornSports.com's Big Mike was able to wrangle a few minutes with CBS Sports Senior College Football Analyst Bruce Feldman to talk about the Longhorn program, conference realignment and the college football playoff system. Feldman discusses his thoughts on the Patterson AD hire, coaches out there that should get a look if the head coaching job at UT becomes available, and a whole lot more. The interview is approximately 17 minutes long and was conducted on Thursday, November 7, 2013. Click the play button below to listen. --------------------------------------------------
  14. Though it's a team that holds one of the most recent National Championships for The University of Texas, the coverage of the Longhorn golf team and college golf in general amongst most media outlets still isn't as prevalent as I would think it would be. Thousands of viewers and golf fans tune into professional golf tournaments all the time. Yet, the common golf fan likely doesn't know much about collegiate golf at all. Which is largely what motivated me to get an inside look into the Texas men's golf team. Brax was also featured in a special on the Longhorn Network that can be found here:
  15. After being suspended for 23 games, Myck Kabongo will see his first action of the season and start Wednesday vs. Iowa State. Today Kabongo released a statement commenting on his suspension and the remaining games: Statement from University of Texas sophomore guard Myck Kabongo - TexasSports.com - Official website of University of Texas Athletics - Texas Longhorns Though he won't be a "cure-all" for the Longhorns, Myck Kabongo's return will undoubtedly help improve the struggles on offense. Currently the offense is built almost entirely on jump-shots that are often contested. Because of thi
  16. Junior Day 1 is here, today, and the action is sure to get things in motion for the 2014 class. We already heard Dallas Carter Linebacker Cameron Hampton has committed, and there are a ton of other guys that are on campus today. Guys that should be or could very likely be on campus today for JD1: Demetrius Knox (commit) Daniel Gresham (commit) Lorenzo Joe (commit) Duke Catalon (commit) Cameron Hampton (commit - TODAY) Jamal Adams - SAF, Lewisville Hebron Jovan Pruitt - OG, Dallas Bishop Dunne Solomon Thomas - DE, Coppell Ty Barrett - OT, Dallas Skyline Roderick Bernard (commi
  17. Watching Texas try to do anything on offense is one of the more frustrating efforts of offensive basketball I've seen in a long time. The team really reminds me of my Rec team's offense. Which is dribbling around a little bit, making a pass or two, and jacking up a contested shot... Which is basically the only offense that exists in my Rec league... But this is D1 basketball and it pains me to watch Texas rely on a contested jump shot every offensive possession. From the looks of it, Texas needs at least more of an interior presence (if not scoring inside) if they want to have better shot
  18. I'll be around updating all the signing and other news as it comes in so check back here often tomorrow for the latest on National Signing Day. Also be sure to follow us on twitter at @HornSports if you want the info via twitter. Should be a great day - hopefully full of a surprise for Texas. Either way we will post it as it comes in. #HOOKEM
  19. An article came out on CBS that featured Texas Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds and Head Coach Mack Brown where they basically stated they still have the drive and burn to win. My question to you all, are you convinced that Mack and DeLoss still have the necessary drive and burn to push the football program (and athletic program, for DeLoss) to perform at the elite level the programs are capable of and expected to be playing at? I'll leave my commentary until later, but I will say I've been impressed with Mack and his coaching staff's recruiting efforts this off-season because I think the e
  20. When you watch the Texas basketball team play you see flashes of a team that could be pretty good. But then you see the Longhorns fall back to earth and struggle in situations that ultimately lead to losses. 0-4 in Big 12 play, Texas is really having a tough time finishing games and finding an identity that will lead to wins. The struggles for Texas are a combination of problems, largely related to youth and inexperience. The team cannot keep it together long enough to pull out wins in games where they have still been in it in the very end. But no matter how they lose, each time I watch Texas
  21. With the combination of a poor basketball season and an article written recently by a guy (C.J. Moore) in Kansas who was trying to defend Rick Barnes, I've been really thinking a lot about this Texas Men's Basketball program. In the article Moore states "What if [barnes] left Texas? Would the Longhorns be better off?" ...I have one answer to that. Yes. Yes a thousand times over. Article: http://www.basketballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=2515 Of course my "yes" depends on the coach that is brought in... No average joe would do the trick. But The culture of Texas basketball is
  22. Sure this team is young... But what has Rick Barnes done in the last 5 years to warrant him keeping his job at the Head Coach of Texas basketball? Yes I'm going there. I understand he elevated the program to a new level, and that's great. We all thank him for that. But this program should be playing at the next level and it hasn't been at the next level for some time now. Anyways, watching this team play makes me want to pull my hair out a lot of the times. It's like the Longhorns play with 1 hand tied behind their back. They are frustrating because they show flashes of making plays at bo
  23. ESPN (Mike Davis of Texas Longhorns to enter NFL draft - ESPN) is reporting that Mike Davis will leave Texas to pursue a career in the NFL. This is big news, and not the best news, for Texas because Mike Davis was one of the leading receiver for the Longhorns. Before last season started, I thought that Mike Davis and Jaxon Shipley would be like 1A and 1B options (not in any order). Though I thought Shipley may do better, Davis actually ended up with the better stats. In his bounce-back junior season Davis tallied 57 receptions (2nd to Shipley's 59) for 939 receiving yards (led team) and 7
  24. Out of the three running backs (Gray, Brown, Bergeron) who would you start at tail back against Oregon State? Has Jonathan Gray separated himself as the clear starter? Or is that even a question that matters? Personally, I don't think it matters who starts. All three backs have talent and all have shown they can take over games. They each bring a unique running style to the game and give Texas a luxury in the backfield. But fine, If I'd have to choose then I'll take Malcolm Brown. Why? Because out of the three back's I like watching the way he runs the best. He runs with power but has
