Aside Johnson, quesions remain at LB

AUSTIN -- Over previous seasons Texas hasn’t been affected by the targeting penalty. Yet, before the 2018 season begins it already has. After being ejected in the victory over Missouri in the Texas Bowl for targeting, senior linebacker Anthony Wheeler will miss the first half at Maryland. Wheeler is most likely the starter at the Mac linebacker spot in defensive coordinator Todd Orlando’s defense, but he won’t be for the first half.

Texas’ inside linebackers

Last year around this time one of the big questions for the spring game was how Texas' LBs would show against the run. The 2016 season had been one of the ugliest for LB play in a decade of exceptionally ugly play at that position but with Malik Jefferson and Anthony Wheeler coming under Todd Orlando's supervision there was some hope that it might get turned around. Then the offense spent the spring game throwing the ball around on the perimeter and it remained to be seen whether Texas knew how to fit the run or not.

Spring will answer so much

Spent a good half hour listening to Justin/Ian podcast and enjoyed their respective takes on the first installment of the Herman takeover at UT. They shared several opinions concerning various subjects in recruiting and possible defensive decisions/player positions. It was entertaining and definitely provided food for thought so here I am pitching a few of my own questions/remarks that intrigue my own sweet self.
