There obviously isn’t too much going on with the team just getting back to campus this weekend. There will be a team meeting tomorrow to welcome everybody to the start of the 2019 school year. I imagine workouts will begin this week as well and I should have some details on that on Friday.

2019 recruiting has seemingly hit a wall at 22 signees. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though the lone hole in the class is the one position you don’t want one: offensive line. However, given the hyper-active transfer climate the staff currently finds itself in, addressing emergency needs is the easiest it’s ever been. Taking a small o-line class is a risk but with the way the 2020 and 2021 offensive line classes are looking, it might be one worth taking.

When Texas is looking to fill a position of need, the staff won’t confine its options to one of high school, JUCO, or grad transfer, rather it will typically weigh all available options and go from there. In some instances they may like their young options and want someone who can fill an immediate gap (or vice versa), but for the most part they’ll always go best player available from the three main tributaries to the program. Talent is talent and they don’t care if you’re a high school player, at Last Chance U, or are ready to move on from your current four-year school as long as you fit the culture and can improve the program.

It’s been three days since the Sugar Bowl and still the wildest thing isn’t the win, but the sight of Bevo charging towards UGA. That not only put a charge in the fan base, but also the team. When the clip ran before the game the locker room “absolutely exploded.” I won’t say it made a difference but others who were in that room would disagree. They sure came out hot.
