Changing landscape makes for interesting race ahead of NSD1

Recruiting fans, and not just Texas fans, might want to buckle up, and I don’t simply mean a seat belt. Maybe affix a helmet and HANS device as well. The road ahead is going to have many twists and turns and the traffic will be of the ‘rubbin’ is racin” variety. There may even be a spike strip of a bad beat along the way but Texas is still in contention for a podium finish and champagne bath.

Inside the Gameplan: Texas QBs by the numbers

If there’s one thing about Texas’ play on offense in 2017 that met preseason expectations it was the prevalence of a season-long quarterback debate over whether Shane Buechele or Sam Ehlinger represented the brightest future for Texas football. There wasn’t much that was even bright about Texas’ play on offense in 2017 but major improvements in 2018 are going to need to come with one of these two young men at the helm.

Scoop #2 on a dreary Tuesday.

With bowl preparation, as well as trying to get as many players closed during the first signing window, we’re seeing a very busy staff being stretched between travel and practice.

Lots of recruiting. Coaches on the road again, official visit weekend coming up, and the latest on top targets. BJ Foster, Vernon Jackson, Tanner McKee, Class of 2018, Junior Angilau, and Rondale Moore. The Scoop.

Dear Tom…

Since you’re taking a few days off after the Texas Tech game, I figured you might need a little reading material to pass the time. Since we both want Texas football to win again, and since I’ve been watching football since about 7-8 years before you were born and therefore I am a Football Expert, I figured I’d write a little note of encouragement, sprinkled with advice as you start looking toward 2018.

You’re welcome.
