Let’s keep the disappointing season going with another SOC!

Before I started critiquing millionaire coaches from my once trendy, now passé couch, I worked in the real world like most of you poor (or rich) souls. That was the glamorous life that was industrial gas and welding supply sales in the mecca of that business, Houston, Texas.

Cole on improving the LB room, Buechele talks faith in WRs

Malik and Cole. (Will Gallagher/IT)

Senior Tim Cole is a member of what has been one of the most criticized units on this year’s Longhorn football team, the linebackers. Part of what has been plaguing the defense includes the opposing offensive line’s ability to get to linebackers and push them out of the way for their runner. The fix, according to Cole, is in the technique.

Inside the Gameplan: Surveying the Scene, Post-KSU

Perhaps the most concerning element of the Texas defeat in Manhattan to Kansas State was how poorly the Texas run defense was executed. This dimension of the Longhorn squad is totally lost heading into a stretch in which they’ll face Baylor (282.8 rushing yards per game) and later West Virginia (206.5 rushing yards per game) at home.

Senior wide receiver Jacorey Warrick continues to enjoy a renaissance season under first year offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert’s offense and under the guidance of Jeff Traylor, whose responsibilities include coaching the inside receivers. With 19 catches for 207 yards and two touchdowns, Warrick is now one of the more efficient receivers in the Longhorn offense, an offense that gets the ball to several receivers.

Coach V’s Grades: Texas-KSU

Kris Boyd (Justin Wells/IT)

We started the game with three off-sides penalties in the first five plays and set our tone to coast on until time to catch the plane. Poona Ford (95) played very well. Chris Nelson (97) is our best defensive player and he played well again. DeShon Elliott (4) had a good game in a brief appearance. Edwin Freeman (35) had two big plays but his linebacking lacks energy.

K-State stuffs UT, 24-21

Shane Buechele (Justin Wells/IT)

Kansas State QB Jesse Ertz entered today’s game as one of the Big 12’s worst statistical passers and a bum shoulder. But after his 3-TD, 265-yard performance today against Texas, you’d have never known that.
