Over the last few years, I’ve become something of an Oklahoma scholar. What started as me studying Texas’ main rival has turned into me watching most of their games, which means that I’ve become very familiar with their team and strategies.
Texas vs Oklahoma is inevitably the most important game for Texas’ regular season every year. Games later in the season like the 2008 showdown in Lubbock or the 2013 “Big 12 championship game” in Waco only hold serious meaning for Texas if the Sooners are first subdued.
The main story with Baylor and the most media attention will generally focus on its offense and Bryce Petty. The “counter” narrative is when people inform you that BU’s running game is actually very good and important to stop.
We talk Texas – Baylor in the Inside Texas Podcast this week. Baylor visits Austin as 16.5 favorites on Saturday. Join Justin Wells and Ian Boyd at 1:30 pm (CT). Our guests include Mark Seymour from Our Daily Bears and IT’s Eric Nahlin talks recruiting UT weekend.
A couple Mesquite prospects, an out-of-state QB, and one of the best defensive tackles in Texas are the Longhorns targets previewed in this week’s Recruiting Notebook.
Before Texas lost its starting quarterback, starting center, starting offensive tackles, and starting nose tackle, I deemed a home win over Baylor to be one of the more important achievements that could be had in 2014.
There are three doors available for the 2014 Texas Longhorns to walk through this coming Saturday in Lawrence, Kansas.
Ideally the pre-conference slate of opponents accomplishes a few things for a football team. It slowly tests and prepares the team for conference play, it provides the team with a win or two that will look good on the resume, and it allows the coaches to firmly establish the team’s identity.
This week’s Inside Texas Podcast hosted by Justin Wells and Ian Boyd drops at 1:30pm (CT) LIVE today. Former Texas QB Sherrod Harris joins us to talk Texas football past, present, and future. Have a listen!!!
We take a look at four new Texas targets squarely on the Longhorns radar. How they fit, how it affects Texas, and evaluations from coaches of prominent national programs. All inside the Recruiting Notebook.
