Texas’ Sam Ehlinger isn’t the only quarterback entering his senior season in the Big 12. Kansas State signal-caller Skylar Thompson, who emerged from both a depth chart battle and a head coaching change as QB1 in Manhattan, has one more year under Chris Klieman to ascend the record books, get his first win versus the Longhorns and contend for a conference title.
Some things remain normal in Texas' capital city. Once again, Texas head coach Shaka Smart’s job status is a hot topic of discussion among Longhorn fans. Once again, UT men’s basketball supporters will be treated to one year of a NBA Draft lottery pick after blue-chip forward Greg Brown III’s decision to play at Texas.
Eric Nahlin analyzes what newest Texas commit Jordon Thomas brings to the field and adds quotes from one of Texas' main 'slot machine' receiver targets. Justin Wells speaks with Thomas to hear from the Port Arthur Memorial defensive lineman himself why he chose Texas, then updates the recruitment of three defensive offers in the Inside Scoop.
Cross your fingers as Texas begins phase 1 of reopening the state. We need this to go well not only for important reasons, but also extremely important reasons like the return of Longhorns football, preferably with a punctual start. We’ll cover that potential start more in the coming days.
Chris Ash is entering a brutal world taking on Big 12 offenses. The conference is a graveyard for defensive coaches that has laid low many a rising star who’d shown so much promise in stopping the run at previous stops. Coach after coach has fallen into the trap of thinking that the crucial point of conflict with these offenses is at the line of scrimmage only to see their schemes undone when former 3-star quarterbacks have repeatedly chucked it over their heads and dropped 40 points on the scoreboard.
