Texas coach Tom Herman’s words often are very guarded after the first scrimmage of the pre-season. Sunday was no different as he offered some praise and rational explanation behind what he saw in the Longhorns’ closed practice.
HOUSTON -- In Stan Drayton’s first season as running backs coach for the Longhorns, the leading rusher on the team was freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger. In his second season as RB coach, Tre Watson and Keaontay Ingram combined for over 1500 yards, but Ehlinger’s rushing touchdown total alone doubled the combined touchdown total for both Watson and Ingram.
The 2019 Texas Longhorn offense is likely to be historically unique. The 2018 offense was fairly unique in its own right, they essentially ran a 21 personnel spread a year ago with Andrew Beck serving as a part-time fullback and occasional flex tight end while Lil’Jordan Humphrey was a nearly full-time flex tight end. Those two players defined the offense with their hybrid utilizations.
STILLWATER, Ok -- Texas entered tonight's nationally televised contest with OSU on a six-game winning streak and a No. 6 ranking in the country. They left with a one-game losing streak and a lot of heartache.
