That was a fun game, the football has become good again. I don’t know if I want to endure double overtime every time Sam Ehlinger leads the charge against a top opponent this season, but it sure beats what we’ve been watching most of this decade.
IT’S GAMEDAY, Y’ALL. The Wildcats of Manhattan come into DKR with visions of purple grandjuer. But Tom Herman’s crew is beginning to click. Here’s our Gameday Primer.
This week the IT staff preps you for the Kansas State game this weekend, deliver the QB news, some game-planning, and a host of prospects coming to Austin in our State of Recruiting. Come hang out in the Hermador.
We’ve discussed September Hudls and potential fits on offense, now let’s look at the defensive side of the ball.
Savvy posters have already figured out that certain components of the Tom Herman Texas program are fairly similar to the equation that’s defined the Bill Snyder era up in Kansas State. Hard-nosed defense, liberal doses of QB run game, and attention to detail on special teams are all key features to the Wildcats’ strategy and are clear points of emphasis for Herman as well. Urban Meyer was heavily influenced by Bill Snyder after all, and then Herman in turn by Meyer.
Here are some mildly interesting notes not worth holding on until the next insider feature.
September’s over. We’ve seen the Horns play four games and now we have some Hudl to enjoy of commits to discuss how they fit. We’ve also heard Herman discuss what’s missing from the roster, or at least hint at it.
Team notes post-Iowa State, injury news, QB rep allocation, and tons of recruiting (BB3, Hines, Perkins, Beason) in the Scoop. Lots to digest.
This week’s Notebook starts with an electric athlete from a powerhouse program, an under-the-radar type that won’t be for long, playmaking WR from DFW that might project on defense, and huge JUCO OL from up north. It’s the Recruiting Notebook, y’all.
The idea behind moving the Humidor to Fridays was to be ahead of the game day curve, rather than behind it. Besides, we can always clean up any post-game information in the Scoop.
With the game today we thought we’d advance the Humi and also bill you a day earlier. Just kidding, I don’t even know how that works.
