Texas safety Caden Sterns comes from a football family. One older brother, Jordan, played at Oklahoma State and spent time in the NFL. Another older brother, Jamison, played at West Texas A&M.
While Texas was doing what it wanted to UTEP (though the Miners bounced back against Abilene Christian and are now 2-1 - look out, y'all) Texas Tech was struggling with the Houston Baptist Huskies, narrowly edging them 35-33. This single data point doesn't suggest that Texas Tech is particularly awesome at football, but opening game struggles and quick fixes are not uncommon in the college football world. If you would like to argue about the potential for a team to grow from Game 1, I have some Texas-Maryland game film to show you, if I hadn't set it all on fire and mailed the ashes to Tom Herman.
In almost four years at the University of Texas, Tom Herman has had some major recruiting success. From the Spring of Bru, to flipping Rising from OU, to holding on to Bjian with the iron claw, it's been a whirlwind in Herman's tenure in Austin. Take a look at his best recruiting wins.
Tom Herman has a home record of 14-5 as head coach of the Texas Longhorns. He has only dropped two games at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium since 2018: a one-point loss to West Virginia in 2018, and a seven-point loss to eventual national champion LSU in 2019.
We’re factoring supply and demand considerations against program need. The 2022 cycle is loaded with elite talent, but linebacker, per the usual, is a bit thin at the top with one prospect head and shoulders above the rest. Also, for the second year in a row, corner isn’t as deep as it has been in the past. That will increase the frenzy for a certain North Shore athlete.
After a tumultuous offseason, we finally got to see the Longhorns take the field on Saturday night. Following the hiring new coordinators on both sides of the ball, Texas received what proved to be a fairly extensive makeover and finally gave the reveal to their fans.
