The current controversies of the 2017 Texas season have been brewing for some time now. In many ways it mirrors some of the controversies about the 2008 Texas team, which found solutions that led to one of the best runs by a Longhorn team we’ve seen.
On Saturday we were treated to something we haven’t seen since 2014, quality and consistent linebacker play from the whole unit, rather than poor fundamentals and a sprinkling of athletic WOW plays.
