Florida linebacker Rian Davis and Cedar Hill Trinity Christian (by-way-of Connecticut) safety Lewis Cine will take official visits to Austin this weekend for what promises to be a fun-filled time. The timing for each visit is perfect as Texas needs to make a lasting impression on each. These are early official visits for two players not announcing soon.

Inside the Gameplan: 2008 Red River Shootout

Earl Thomas

The 2008 Red River Shootout was the second of three consecutive I attended. It was easily the most exciting and rewarding live game I’ve attended in any sport. Because of the scarring that had resulted from five consecutive defeats to Bob Stoops’ Sooners, there wasn’t a ton of confidence going into any of these games even though Texas ended up finishing 3-1 against OU during the Colt McCoy era.

The spring of silence

Spring began on March 20 this year. Texas Football spring practice began two days later. Texas progressed through the allotted practices and Orange-White game with no real big team news.

The spring was remarkably quiet.

The Big Picture: Eight Years In The Desert

(…and how to get out)

Since 2010, Texas has been a .500 ball club. Or, more precisely, our 53-48 record makes us a .525 ball club. Let’s not short ourselves. Over those eight years, the Horns have posted four losing records, only one AP Top 25 finish and our best three year run occurred between 2011-2013 when Texas went 25-14. Since 2013, Texas is an execrable 23-27 (.460).
