Three thoughts as No. 15 Texas gears up for Kansas

Three thoughts as No. 15 Texas gears up for Kansas

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports What three items should the Longhorns focus on entering the Kansas game? The No. 15 Texas Longhorns open this week as 21.5-point favorite over the Kansas Jayhawks following their disappointing performance against the Oklahoma Sooners at the Cotton Bowl. Kansas comes into the game with a 2-4 overall record and a 0-3 record in the Big 12. A review of the film reveals that Les Miles’ team is still adjusting to their first-year head coach. The Jayhawks have not executed well on either side of the ball in 2019, leading to Miles firing offensive coordinator...

No. 2-ranked 2021 ILB Kendrick Blackshire includes Texas in top 13

247Sports: Damon Sayles One of the top talents in the 2021 class is still considering the Longhorns following his first list cut. More than half of the schools that have extended offers to highly-touted 2021 Duncanville inside linebacker Kendrick Blackshire now find themselves on the outside looking in. On Tuesday, the four-star talent made his initial list cut, trimming his list of 27 options to a top 13. The Texas Longhorns survived the cut, alongside Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Florida State, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Michigan State, Michigan, Oklahoma State, Florida, and Miami....

fUTure19 Recap and Participation Tracker: Week 7 — Oklahoma

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Roschon Johnson’s jump cut on his 57-yard run was the highlight of Saturday’s loss. This past weekend’s loss against the Oklahoma Sooners included minimal contributions from the Texas Longhorns freshmen class. Besides running back Roschon Johnson, no other freshmen scratched the box score in this one. The NCAA redshirt rule, which made its debut last season, allows scholarship players to play up to four games without burning their redshirt. To keep track of how many games each freshman has appeared in throughout the season, I’ll list the number of...

Texas drops to No. 14 in SB Nation’s Week 7 FanPulse Top 25

Texas drops to No. 14 in SB Nation’s Week 7 FanPulse Top 25

Fan confidence took a major hit for the first time this season. As the Texas Longhorns dropped in both national polls on Sunday following Saturday’s 34-27 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl, so too did the Horns drop in SB Nation’s FanPulse Top 25 on Monday — falling from No. 11 to No. 14. Burnt Orange Nation readers maintained a little bit more confidence in the Horns than national voters, slotting Texas at No. 13, ahead of undefeated Boise State and undefeated Minnesota. Overall fan confidence declined, though, dropping from 96.4 percent to 82.8 percent,...

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports The Longhorns are extremely banged up on defense, but the season’s two best opponents are now in the rearview mirror. The Texas Longhorns entered Saturday’s game against the Oklahoma Sooners without three key contributors on defense and left the Cotton Bowl with two more significant injuries to key contributors. On a touchdown catch by Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, Texas junior safety Chris Brown suffered a fractured forearm that will keep him out for about six weeks — he may be able to return for the season finale against Texas Tech in Austin,...

Despite Dallas struggles, Texas still on right path

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports The mood in Dallas following Oklahoma’s 34-27 win over Texas was one not typically associated with the State Fair surrounding the Cotton Bowl: Sobering. Through six games, the No. 15 Longhorns are 4-2 — the highest ranked two-loss team in the Associated Press poll — with its toughest games already played. But it’s the two losses against LSU and Oklahoma — both potential playoff contenders — that have Texas fans reeling — unnecessarily concerned about the direction of the program. That’s not to sugarcoat either loss. In both games, Texas...
