Texas looks to rebound after its season-opening loss to Maryland when the Spartans from San Jose invade Austin. It’s gameday, y’all.
AUSTIN — Tom Herman had one goal entering his first game as coach of the Longhorns. Beat Maryland and start 1-0.
The Terrapins had something else in store.
We’re one Saturday from football. 13 days.
As the Longhorns are getting closer to Maryland game prep, there are positions and rotations yet to be determined, including naming that elusive starting QB for the battle with Maryland on September 2nd.
Some quick hitters from yesterday’s final scrimmage, at least from the 1v1 perspective.
This week’s Notebook focuses on the defensive interior with UT targeting the men in the trenches. We start in Missouri, swing around to Oklahoma, then back home to Dallas and Houston in the Notebook.
AUSTIN — Not a great start when RB Chris Warren missed Saturday’s scrimmage due to a concussion sustained on Thursday. No timetable for his return. More from Herman’s post-scrimmage presser.
AUSTIN — Another camp, another successful event put on by the Texas Football staff on Friday night. When they weren’t dousing Tom Herman in the dunk tank, or having a giant water balloon fight on the field at DKR, the 2018 and 2019 prospects were competing in special events and getting a dose of what the future holds for the program on the 40 Acres.
One such prospect was 5-star DE DeMarvin Leal.
Talking recruiting in July, things we want to see before Maryland, and a thorough breakdown of the Predator series.
Texas and Tom Herman have not only recruited well out-of-state, they’re in a great spot for two of the best at their positions, Terrace Marshall and Luke Ford, for the Top 5 Class of 2018.
Tomorrow I’ll break down my conversation with Ford, but up first is Mr. Marshall.
This week’s Notebook starts in St. Louis at a premium spot, heads over to Kentucky for the nation’s fastest recruit, still heading east to see a versatile DB from the Peach State, then round-trips to Arizona for the country’s top JUCO TE. The Notebook finishes with notes/quotes from UT’s latest 2019 offer with a nasty disposition.
Ian and I discuss satellite camps, how the 2018 defensive recruits fit, and Orgeron robbing a Little Debbie distribution plant.
