Week 10 schedules for Texas commits and targets.
This month’s Inside Texas Magazine includes game stories from Joe Cook and Justin Wells, analysis from Scipio Tex and Ian Boyd, features from Mike Blackwell, and outstanding pictures from Will Gallagher.
On Tuesday I wrote about the in-state guys I covet the most. As I become more familiar with the players as well as UT’s needs that list will evolve. So too will the list of prospects below from Western states.
Though Texas defensive coordinator Todd Orlando’s defense has put in good performances this year, holding five opponents to less than three scores, it leaves a lot to be desired at the beginning of games and on third down.
Texas matches up pretty well with West Virginia in Austin and since there’s no bye week, there’s that much less time for a solid Mountaineer staff to hone in on our tendencies/personnel the way Mike Gundy did in Stillwater.
This week’s Recruiting Notebook looks at a pair of JUCO prospects, and revisits a pair Texas’ pledges from the Class of 2019 as the Horns get closer to wrapping up its latest cycle.
In the 5th episode of The Eyes of Texas are Upodcast, Eric Nahlin and Justin Wells discuss post-OSU, pre-WVU, weekend recruiting visitors, and the must-gets for 2020.
There’s a lot of confusion around college football about how good this West Virginia team really is.
Texas head coach Tom Herman has plenty of answers ready to go for a variety of questions. One of his favorites, especially over the 6-0 stretch prior to Saturday’s loss at Oklahoma State, is that his team is looking to go 1-0 every week, and the goal for his team in 2018 is to be in contention for the Big 12 championship.
Like Texas, Oklahoma State had seven possessions in the first half of play. Unlike Texas, they maximized nearly all of them. They had an opponent specific game plan to execute and that they did. Mercilessly. They scored four touchdowns, hit a field goal, missed another field goal and punted only once. They gained at least 53 yards on six of their first 7 possessions. By halftime, they’d run 55 plays and gained 383 yards from scrimmage.
