Gilbert, players address questions still surrounding Horns

There remains a lot of mystery surrounding the 2016 Texas Longhorns football team. Fans still are not entirely sure what they will see on Sunday when offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert’s offense steps on the field for the first time. Not only do they not know what the offense will really look like, but also who will take the first snaps at quarterback. Everybody in the program has been quiet on the subject.

Inside the Gameplan: Buechele and the Blitz

The blitz has always served as a cheat code for defenses that want to rattle a young QB and fluster him badly enough that he falls apart and can’t even execute simple reads and throws. For Shane Buechele to navigate the 2016 schedule he’s going to need particular skills and a knowledge of how the league likes to blitz and attack in order to keep his head above water when opponents throw complicated looks and pressures at him. His ability to do so much may prove to be one of the major themes of the season.
