Did you ever have to make up your mind? Say as to one and let the other one slide. There's that to deal with. Thinking back on Texas DC Todd Orlando's defense last year I don't get far before realizing the effect Poona Ford had on coach's game-planning and probably more important the particular play calls he could depend upon from week to week. Orlando definitely had to have the four man DL ready in case of a missing Poona dominance each week.
Sophomore Brandon Jones and junior Kris Boyd both have a lot in common. Both were highly touted defensive backs from East Texas who were asked to contribute a lot as true freshmen. Now with more experience under their belts, both players enter 2017 as key players in Todd Orlando’s defense.
Houston was the perfect job for Tom Herman to take for three reasons. The first was that it allowed him to get back to work in the familiar grounds at Texas, recruiting and developing in a state he already knew well thanks to previous stops at Texas, Sam Houston State, Texas State, and Rice.
I am ready to see this Longhorn Football team put back together into units that have a chance to get better with each game they play. With Tom Herman's arrival, it's time to build the puzzle with all these pieces.
LUBBOCK -- The closer D'Onta Foreman gets to setting records, the closer they get to saving Charlie Strong's job. A record-breaking 341-yard, three-touchdown performance and a Kris Boyd game-sealing interception helped lead the Longhorns to a 45-37 victory over Texas Tech at Jones AT&T Stadium on Saturday.
Charlie Strong notched his 2nd road win in his last eight and put Texas over .500 and in a favorable position to finish the season with real momentum. The home date against West Virginia looms large. But let's talk about the here and now...
LUBBOCK -- Every week it seems that Texas gets drawn into yet another standard Big 12 game, but this time at last Texas managed to leverage its advantages to control the game and stave off Tech's attempts. It helped as UT topped the Red Raiders, 45-37, in Lubbock today.
