Blackwell: Here he comes…there he goes

Our seats were on the north end of DKR, about midway up, diagonal to the back northwest corner of the end zone. It was September of 2015, a night game, and my son Miles and I were thrilled with the view. He had just turned 12. Before this game against California, we had only been to blowouts, so he had never truly heard an electric DKR before. But this night was different; this was the night Jerrod Heard's grandkids will hear about someday. Oh, and it will be quite a story.

Herman outlines quarterback trio, assesses challenge of facing Trojans

In the story that is Tom Herman’s first season leading the Longhorn football program, Saturday’s win over San Jose State served several important purposes including letting a true freshman quarterback earn valuable experience and earning Herman’s first victory as head coach at UT. That first experience for Sam means that this week’s matchup against the top five USC Trojans will not be Ehlinger’s first taste of college football if called on to play or start.

What can be gleaned from the ISU win?

If you kept your eye on the battle in the trenches that took place in Austin Saturday night, the game’s outcome probably never seemed to be in serious doubt. Texas dominated the Iowa State offensive line, particularly with its pass-rush, while the Cyclone DL was not up to the challenge of standing up to D’Onta Foreman and the UT OL.

Jefferson, Heard ready to lead

Texas linebacker Malik Jefferson and QB/WR Jerrod Heard lived with pressure even before they stepped on the University of Texas campus. After dealing with the pressures of being a highly touted recruit during his freshman campaign, Jefferson now has to deal with new expectations in his sophomore season. While those are different, he is ready to take it on with the help of veteran teammates.
