An out-of-state DB has Texas in his Top 8, coaches can officially contact juniors today, and our favorite game of Mystery Recruit. Plus a new offer goes out to a 2016 defensive back. Our Eric Nahlin has you covered.
AUSTIN — Tyrone Swoopes has spoken – and you could have heard a pin drop. If you listened closely Monday, you’d also hear that Texas’ QB competition remains fluid heading into Saturday’s season-opener at Notre Dame.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll once again keep inside the lines, for the most part, considering actual, real life football is upon us. El Cohiba Grande gives us the goods about what to expect this weekend against the Irish. The Cigar will talk unit by unit along with some macro-level talk that should have Horns fans pretty optimistic about Saturday.
AUSTIN — Texas officially named Tyrone Swoopes its starter today as head coach Charlie Strong and a few players were made available to the media. Below are the raw quotes from Swoopes and what they were about but I wanted to point out a few that just baffled me.
We talk to the nation’s top safety, get evaluations on commits/targets, team update with a new injury, and one more prospect sets up an OV to Austin. We also wrap-up Week 1 in Texas HS football with stats and numbers in the Scoop Part II.
You can assume anyone who has the 2017 quarterback commit from Westlake as a 3-star hasn’t seen him in a game.
I always preferred away games to home games, always. The experience meant so much more than playing at home (with a few exceptions). I’m not dissing Texas fans or Darrell K. Royal Stadium — those I dearly love. Although, we are known for leaving in the third quarter.
We look closely at an OOS LB, the state of Louisiana recruiting, and get a preview of Notre Dame from someone who covers Notre Dame. We also look at the latest from hoops recruiting as Shaka Smart lines up his next potential Longhorns in Austin. All here in the Scoop.
We like to keep you insiders prepared for what to expect from the coming seasons and I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t speculate to the best of my abilities about what’s coming down the pipe for the Longhorns in the 2015 season.
I’ll go ahead and say it…if I had to pick one thing that was most to blame for Rick Barnes’ ultimate demise at Texas, I’d choose the lack of offensive production/efficiency.
