Five Quick Thoughts: Texas 27, ISU 6

AUSTIN -- Texas needed its defense to show up and it did. Too bad the offense didn't leave the locker room until the 2nd half, but thankfully for Longhorn Nation and Charlie Strong, they did too. Texas exploded for 21 third quarter points behind the arm of Shane Buechele and legs of Devin Duvernay and D'Onta Foreman, and its defense did the rest in a 27-6 win over Iowa State on Saturday night at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Attempting to corner the market

Recent developments at the cornerback position have me wanting to reset the conversation from the program on down to the class of 2018. Texas fans know who DBU is and don't need articles from the media to write it to affirm that belief. We know the crown isn't up for grabs on a yearly or even quadrennial basis. Hell, even when the product is poor on the field Texas is still putting defensive backs in the NFL at a better rate than most.

Inside the Gameplan: Texas corners

Late in the 2015 season, Texas discovered something very promising about its young roster of DBs with Holton Hill and Davante Davis. They emerged as legitimate cornerbacks and allowed Texas to field guys outside who are 6-foot-2, 180 and, 6-foot-2, 191 respectively. Between the two of them, there’s a chance Texas will have some key building blocks to base the 2016 defense around.
