Fridays in the Humidor – 12/23/16

Last week we took a look at some of the lesser known players in the program. This week we mined our sources, old and new, for information on some of the more well known players in the program heading into the Spring. You'll see some overlap in this and last week's Humidor. If we're reiterating it's because it comes from differing sources. So you know it's good. Let's take a look.

Inside the Gameplan: Todd Orlando’s defense

From the beginning it was always Charlie Strong’s intention to install a run-based, ball control offense that could beat down Big 12 defenses and protect his own defense. His once innovative 3-3-5 defense was heavy on disguised blitzes and shifting fronts designed to disrupt opponents. Gameplans for college defenses rarely have enough disguise or variety to hold up under the microscope of spread offense for 70+ snaps a game.

Walker, Texas Stranger

There's no way around it, losing long-time Longhorn lean Walker Little to Stanford is not good. He represented Herman's best chance at a true headliner to place on the marquee. There are still some very fine supporting actors in play, namely K'Lavon Chaisson and Eno Benjamin, but the new Texas coach's casting department is struggling to sign a big name to its recently greenlit project.
