The Longhorns and their 18 man class are currently ranked #2 in the 24-7 2018 composite and the staff has done an elite job recruiting thus far.
A few tips on our opponent and their personnel that will make you the smartest person at your game watch.
Now let’s dive in on the inside receivers and talk about the total package.
The 2017 Longhorns are loaded with talented pass catchers and while strength is never a weakness, it does mean some pretty good players, hyped former recruits and expected veteran mainstays will be on the outside looking in when snaps are doled out over the course of the season. Managing egos will be interesting. Some choices will surprise Longhorn fans, but we’ll see plenty of reshuffling as the season progresses and the staff sees how their talent reacts to live fire.
The Longhorns have started their Maryland preparation and while DJ Durkin is playing coy with respect to naming his starter, I can read the tea leaves in the crab cakes. Or something.
A while back I brought the realism in describing the stark reality of the last few years, but today I’m bringing the optimism. Actually, it’s also realism, but a different kind. The realism of understanding that we humans are pattern-seeking animals who tend to imbue temporary trends with permanence. We have a tendency to project the ephemeral forward confidently without considering that many of the factors that underpin our assumptions have changed.
So now we’re left wondering what to do at TE. I think looking to 2008 could hold a clue as to how we go from here, even if the parallels aren’t perfectly clean.
I like simple statistics that convey truths. I’m also a general fan of living in reality. So one of my favorite portions of the 2017 Thinking Texas Football is something I’d like to excerpt here.
Herman’s presser today made more concrete a lot of things I’d already surmised with respect to our OL. But it also surprised me. Elijah Rodriguez, starting right tackle.
Something caught my eye while scanning the post-practice player interviews. It came from our favorite Tongan and it reminded me once again that we’ve entered a new world when it comes to attention to detail in all phases of the program.
