Texas versus OU for conference supremacy….in December. Before it came to this, both teams had to win on the road with Texas drawing Kansas and OU playing West Virginia.
Merging thankfulness on this day and football is pretty easy given just two Thanksgivings ago the internet went haywire with news of Tom Herman and LSU nearing a deal. It crawled on ESPN and essentially ruined any chance of a nice peaceful evening for thousands of UT fans. Because of that night I’ll forever point to it when I tell my wife, “hey, at least it’s not the Tom Herman/Texas Thanksgiving.”
Texas took a JUCO defensive lineman in the 2017 cycle to add numbers to a room that needed it. Texas plans to do the same in the 2019 class with Jacoby Jones. The Butler C.C. defensive lineman committed to Texas today.
What better week to have our favorite Aggie Stringsays on? We keep it lighthearted as Eric concedes internet territory to a funny group of Aggies, discuss how he became such a die-hard, our favorite memories, and of course whether or not they should play the game.
A fantastic win came with a price that Sam Ehlinger is happy to pay I’m sure. That, and more injury news, notes + a big recruiting weekend for the Longhorns in the Scoop.
There’s a lot at stake in Austin this weekend. Big 12 championship chances, Senior Night, and DKR’s 500th game.
It seems only yesterday we were going through the wide range of emotions over a wild class of 2015 recruiting cycle, but today we’re sending them off and thanking them for their blood, sweat, tears, and patience.
Ian joins Eric to review Texas Tech and discuss Kliff Kingsbury, provide a look at Iowa State and Matt Campbell, and go over the Big 12 Conference race. Finally, the two touch on some of the visitors expected in Austin this weekend
If you heard the theme song to M.A.S.H. during UT’s locker room celebration on Saturday night, it wasn’t a flashback to the 70s. With the physicality this team plays with, you’re going to get banged up. It got to a point in Lubbock where we saw third stringers on the field, like Donovan Duvernay. Here’s what we’re hearing + recruiting in the Scoop.
Texas heads to Lubbock to end a two game skid and avenge a disappointing home loss to end the regular season one calendar ago.
