On Saturday Texas was who we wrote about, and who you read about in August. We saw why the Texas defense dominated the Texas offense all August.

Now the issue becomes, can Texas sustain its newfound defensive confidence and can the offense make strides week in and week out.

The quarterback chronicles

Texas has a quarterback who is clearly the most physical at his position. Another UT quarterback is more experienced, and is thus more familiar with the team’s system. A third has a very special skill set, unique to the others, and also sees very important playing time.

Thoughts on current and future LBs

On Saturday we were treated to something we haven’t seen since 2014, quality and consistent linebacker play from the whole unit, rather than poor fundamentals and a sprinkling of athletic WOW plays. Plays were made at the line of scrimmage or behind it rather than 10 yards down the field. They played physical. It was awesome.
