By now you've heard Cade Brewer is out for the remainder of the season. That's bad enough, but that bad news is compounded by him missing the spring as well. Perhaps Andrew Beck will be back but for a team still working on offensive identity going into next year this isn't good news. Last night we heard Brewer was on crutches....
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.
Lots to get to this week as the Longhorns tidy up preparations ahead of the short trip to Waco. We'll cover the team from top to bottom -- current players and red-shirts -- and then finish up with some recruiting notes from our Eric Nahlin and Justin Wells.
Another huge game awaits us this weekend as Oklahoma State comes to town with its Grand Prix offense. The defense has a lot on its plate but I think the plan going in is one that could work, but will the offense be able to keep up? We also drop the TEX-OSU recruiitng visitors list with insight. Check it out inside the Humidor.
Texas looks to rebound from the disappointment versus Maryland while at the same time preparing for USC. San Jose State should be just what the doctor ordered, but don't discount that 'preparing for USC' part. Texas has a lot of fixable issues to work on and Saturday's game will serve an important role to that end.
With players putting on the pads today, football has officially began. We've got practice reports, depth chart movement, team info, and loads of hoops recruiting. With 100-degree temperatures, come inside the air-conditioned Humidor on this Friday.
