One might make a case for three things that just might have appeared obvious concerning our offense yesterday if one was so inclined. The lead story is we have a solid group of guys that just play well with each other. Our OLine doesn’t have any world-beaters but they don’t bust assignments and manage to put and sometimes keep a hat on a hat. Our WR’s are happy for each other when one makes a play. Sometimes it even makes them giddy enough to make an effective block on said play. Our RB”s give it the old college try every opportunity. Blocking ain’t their strong suit but they are game with effort which also describes our TE’s capabilities on said maneuvers. This leaves us with QB play and headset play-calling.
AUSTIN, Tx — In its last two home games, Texas went into halftime against ranked opponents in a close game where the second half would determine the outcome. And on both occasions, UT (3-1, 1-0) earned decisive victories, only this time it opened Big 12 play and ended a four-game skid against the TCU Horned Frogs.
The IT Roundtable tries to see into Texas’ future with the Frogs. Also, offensive, defensive playmakers, and out Upset of the Week. We got you covered.
Coming off a big win over No. 22 USC last Saturday, Texas takes on a more formidable foe in the Frogs from Fort Worth. No. 17 TCU comes to Austin to open Big 12 play vs the Longhorns. We’ve got game previews, team news, injury reports, and the recruiting visitor list. It’s Gameday, y’all.
TCU comes to town representing probably the toughest match-up on the schedule for Texas. This is a battle of divergent styles. TCU is quick afoot and of mind. Texas is bigger, more physical, and maybe a bit more lumbering on the headsets. TCU is mentally tough. Texas has shown to be quite resilient under Herman’s tutelage.

Below are guys who were ranked in the composite top 100 for their senior year.
Prepare to be surprised at the amount of players who didn’t produce as you might have thought, though there is still time for guys in the most recent classes.
Both starting quarterbacks in Saturday’s matchup between Texas and TCU are making their first career starts against their opponent. Texas’ Sam Ehlinger missed last year’s game in Fort Worth due to injury, while TCU’s Shawn Robinson was behind Kenny Hill on the depth chart. That doesn’t mean the Longhorns don’t know what Robinson is capable of doing in TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie’s offense.
At this point TCU is starting to generate the kind of fear and anxiety in Texas fans that Oklahoma used to generate. Texas hasn’t beaten Oklahoma regularly this decade, but they’d done it at times and played them close since Mack left.
Not so with the Frogs.
The North Shore Mustangs have long been the Eastside Houston hegemon similar to their Westside counterparts, the Katy Tigers. That dominance won’t end any time soon as North Shore is on an amazing run of talent, even for them.
