Fridays in the Humidor – 11/2/17

This specific Texas team knows it owes TCU for the recent pasteings. This sounds like a pretty vengeful bunch, at least on defense. I don't know that Texas will win, but I feel confident TCU will know it's been in a fight. Recruiting tempered some over the course of the week. The OU momentum faded a bit, at least as it concerns Texas. Keondre Coubrn canceled his trip to Alabama, and some big official visits have been set up.

Breaking Down Wide Receiver: Part I

The 2017 Longhorns are loaded with talented pass catchers and while strength is never a weakness, it does mean some pretty good players, hyped former recruits and expected veteran mainstays will be on the outside looking in when snaps are doled out over the course of the season. Managing egos will be interesting. Some choices will surprise Longhorn fans, but we'll see plenty of reshuffling as the season progresses and the staff sees how their talent reacts to live fire.

Moore chooses the Horns

AUSTIN -- Tom Herman has attributes he prefers for slot receivers in his offense. It's safe to assume a prospect with 4.33 (40) speed fits his preferences. That's one reason Louisville (KY) Trinity wide receiver Rondale Moore committed to Texas today. Moore, one of the fastest wide receivers in the country, chose Texas over competing offers from Kentucky, Ohio State, Purdue, Penn State, and Pittsburgh, among others.

The Demarcus Ayers Template

One of my lasting impressions in this job is pulling up to Lancaster's Spring game in 2012. As I was walking to the field, I heard the instrumental to the timeless classic John by New Orleans musician Lil Wayne playing during the team stretch/hype period. At this point one might want to put the pads on too, at least until they started popping.
