Today on Inside the Humidor we continue with summer workout information. Not much new here, but at least it seems the kids are fighting through the wall they seemingly hit last week. We’ll also talk a little bit the offensive depth chart. Not much news here but all eyes are on Patrick Hudson to see if he can make some noise and shake up the depth chart a bit. Finally, there’s a tidbit on the AD that you won’t want to miss as we continue the dog days of summer.
Discussing quarterback is fun again, at least for the time being. As always, opinions vary greatly, and the debates are full throated, even if it's too premature for any of us to know how things will shake out.
The Stockholm Syndrome of repeated quarterback controversies and undecided depth charts has conditioned Texas sports fans to embrace, nay, love, discussing the position. I hate it. I feel there's a curse hanging over me as I've been forced to endure the conversation every year since I've been writing.

The process of Charlie choosing and successfully hiring Sterlin Gilbert to be the new OC at Texas raised all kinds of questions about the climate in Bellmont and whether Charlie has the ability or support necessary to stick around for the long haul.
In this week's Scoop, we break it into two parts. In Part I, we take a closer look at the next potential offers from the UT staff. Also an interesting tidbit on another freshman from this 2015 class putting in extra work. Part II talks Peyton Aucoin and Devwah Whaley. It might be hot outside but it's cool inside the Scoop.
Another busy recruiting weekend on the 40 Acres and we've got you covered. A big announcement goes down this afternoon and we're on top of it as well. The visitor list, two QBs on the Texas radar, a JUCO pass-catcher speaks out, and our weekly hoops update. All inside the Scoop.
Some decently interesting stuff in here but no new revelations, I don't think. I missed a couple of guys I'll try and get tomorrow. It's impossible to get everyone in one fell swoop when a gathering like this gets out. Remember the game Red Rover? Now send 100 football prospects right over at the same time. Here's what I got.
