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.
It’s 11 days to go; the equivalent of December 14th for children. Keeping with the spirit, I’ll provide my wish list for a season that has more to do with forward trajectory than wins and losses. Wins are certainly an indicator and ultimately how Charlie Strong will be judged, but barring a catastrophic season, wins and losses don’t matter as much as how the team sets up for 2016 — when wins will certainly matter.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor with the Big Cigar we’ll keep it between the lines as we did last week despite swirling rumors that reside on the outlandish side of the fence. El Cohiba Grande has a pretty salty overview of the last week of practice and what to look forward to as we head down the stretch to opening day. While your 401k’s may be languishing, the outlook is bright for the 2015 Longhorns as we go inside the Humidor.
You survived. The wait is over and the most wonderful time of the year starts next Thursday. Welcome back to our weekly fall feature where IT will tell you where you need to be throughout the season.
The staff at Inside Texas has built the 2015 Texas Longhorns Preview Magazine. We look at the team overall, position-by-position, preview each UT opponent in 2015, take a closer look at Johnathan Gray, profile the exciting Class of 2015, and deliver a Recruiting Notebook for 2016 pledges. Everything you need from Will Gallagher, Eric Nahlin, Ian Boyd, Bill Frisbie, Mike Blackwell, Chris Hall, and Justin Wells. Dive in.
