In a minor milestone for head coach David Pierce, Texas matched their win total from 2016 in a Tuesday night 2-0 victory over Texas State
On my first rewatch, I thought it would be a good idea to fire up Snapchat and use the drawing feature to make some annotations on various plays. Here are some of the results.
In Tom Herman’s first game coaching in front of a crowd and with a scoreboard at Royal-Memorial Stadium, the Orange team defeated the White team, 52-51.
The scoring was peculiar, with penalties taking points off the boards, big plays adding three points for the White or offense’s total, and turnovers or missed field goals adding to the Orange or defense’s total.
Following the addition of Oak Hill (VA) point guard Matt Coleman, who officially signed with Texas this past Wednesday, head coach Shaka Smart called Coleman’s addition part of “an important stretch of days for us.” Coleman joins the 2017 class, but Smart is not through recruiting this spring as the Longhorns are in the mix for elite recruit Mohamed Bamba.
Tom Herman had his final media availability until the Orange and White Spring Game this Saturday and spoke about depth at RB, QB, and checking hydration levels.
While many of you were watching Jordan Spieth put together a great -4 round on moving day at Augusta, the Horns took game two and the series from the Oklahoma Sooners.
Whenever Texas’ archrival Oklahoma in town, rankings and stats can be thrown out the window. Whoever plays the cleanest game and best controls their emotions usually ends up winning.
Even though the philosophy of Texas’ offense stems from Tom Herman, offensive coordinator Tim Beck is the man charged with leading and calling the side of the ball asked to score points.
Regardless of whether or not Texas is ‘Defensive Back U,’ a title multiple universities lay claim to, the Longhorns’ football program has put talented defensive backs into the NFL for the better part of this century. In the last several years, the secondary has not lived up to the play required to claim that title, and current players, like junior safety DeShon Elliott and senior nickelback Antwuan Davis, know that.
I joined Will Baizer to talk practice, including what the Shackelford injury means for the interior OL, what’s going on a right tackle, and what Tom Herman currently has available at running back. We also talk a little bit about Bill Belichick speaking at Texas’ Coaches Clinic, and Will and I talk about our favorite players and plays who are “off the beaten path,” and I take that opportunity to heap praise on Chance Mock.
