University of Texas Vice President and director of athletics Chris Del Conte considers Texas the hunter, not the hunted. As an athletic program that claims to be one of the country’s elite, student-athletes and coaches that don burnt orange know that opponents relish the opportunity to knock the Longhorns off their pedestal.
Against the top team in the Big 12 ranked No. 18 in the country, Texas looked to be trading punches with Kansas State throughout the first half. The Longhorns scored 24 of its 39 first half points in the paint choosing to eschew outside shots and instead driving against the Wildcat defense.
Texas head coach Shaka Smart met with the media yesterday ahead of the Longhorns’ match-up with Big 12 leading Kansas State.
Though little news was made by the Texas Longhorns yesterday regarding player addition, Texas head coach announced there would be several changes in roles on staff.
There are plenty of opportunities for college football prospects to learn where they stack up athletically against others in their class. The Opening, the Under Armour camp series, and the All-American Bowl Combine are a few of the ways prospective student-athletes can see where their 40 times, shuttle times, and distance on vertical and long jumps stack up against others from around the country.
When the day began at Disch-Falk Field, the focus was on the past. Former head coach Augie Garrido joined Bibb Falk, Billy Disch, and Cliff Gustafson as Texas head coaches to have their busts placed outside Texas’ home diamond. Longhorn athletic director Chris Del Conte even joked with current head coach David Pierce that maybe one day his bust would join the legendary five.
AUSTIN — The Texas punter job was passed from 2017 Ray Guy Award winner and 2018 AP First Team All-Pro Michael Dickson to his cousin Ryan Bujcevski the moment the Longhorns received the latter’s National Letter of Intent in December 2017.
AUSTIN — A Big 12 loss at home against Kansas would not have been the résumé-tanker the loss at Georgia was, but it would have been another tally in the loss column for a team that for multiple reasons, needed the win.
The win provided a résumé-booster instead, as the Longhorns defeated the No. 11 Jayhawks 73-63 behind a 16-point performance from Dylan Osetkowski.
AUSTIN, TX — Following UT’s loss against TCU, head coach Shaka Smart’s team was presented with the unique opportunity to play a non-conference game well into the Big 12 season.
Partway through its Big 12 Conference basketball slate, Texas’ place in the simplest offensive and defensive statistics tell two different stories. Texas head coach Shaka Smart’s team is in the top 40 in scoring defense and 226th in the nation in scoring offense.
