A letter to the quarterbacks…

Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger (Justin Wells/IT)

Dear Shane and Sam,

Wanted to drop you a quick line as you prepare for Kansas State this Saturday. I know you guys are probably tired of everybody droning on and on about who the starting quarterback should be, about who has the most and least experience, who is he better runner, blah-blah-blah.

Wizard-proofing the gameplan

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.
