Texas Longhorns Football News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
See more NCAA Football tickets.
4/17/14: The Longhorns suffered a tough, but at least short-term obstacle last week as starting quarterback David Ash is out for the remainder of spring practices with a broken foot. Ash will undergo surgery and will be out of commission for several weeks. The good news is that he is expected to be fully recovered by the time August practices roll around. Ash is still the starting quarterback for Texas. That being said, Texas' new head coach, Charlie Strong, may always change up the depth chart. This injury gives 2013 recruit Tyrone Swoopes a chance to prove his mettle in leading the team.
4/10/13: The Athletic Department at the University of Texas has a nice $265,000 bill to pay now. The school contracted with a search firm to find their new head coach (Charlie Strong) once Mack Brown announced he was stepping down last season. Many may question why the school would spend so much money on a search firm when there realistically are very few candidates available and those are pretty well known. One reason is the vetting process. That is where the search firm goes through candidates histories to uncover any potential controversies or misdeeds. Recall over a decade ago when Notre Dame hired George O'Leary, but then found he had lied on his resume about a degree. O'Leary was quickly out of South Bend and it was a big embarrassment for the school. In that sense, the search firm is like insurance.
4/3/14: New head football coach Charlie Strong is trying to get the toughness back in Texas football. One of the complaints about Strong's predecessor, Mack Brown, is that the players got too soft over his last few years. Indeed, the Longhorns have been average for a while, and may just need a little Junction Boy treatment. Strong is now making his players walk the half mile from the locker-room to the practice facility and will not let his players use the 'hook 'em horns' salute. That may change back over time, but Strong wants his players to earn that right first. It seems like a good step from the fan's point of view, and maybe these small items will have a positive effect.
3/27/14: This time of year is notorious within college football as a period where players sometimes move on from the program. That can happen in several ways, but usually boils down to the player wanting to play somewhere else or the team dismissing the player for academic or legal reasons. Texas, last week, dismissed two reserve players for violating 'unspecified team rules'. The players are Chet Moss and defensive back Leroy Scott. Scott was a co-special teams player of the year in 2013, while Moss was suspended previously for the Texas Tech game around Thanksgiving and played in 27 games in his Longhorn career.
3/20/14: Much to the chagrin of Texas A&M faithful, the University of Texas is still the flagship football program in the state. A&M is expanding and renovating their stadium (thank you, Johnny Football), while Baylor is getting a new stadium (thank you, Robert Griffin III). UT looks to upgrade as well. The Longhorns have reportedly hired PriceWaterhouseCoopers to study the possibility of adding a section to the south end of Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. UT has long had the biggest stadium among Texas colleges, and an expansion by UT would ensure that they stay as the biggest in the state.
3/13/14: Everyone knows that the Longhorns are trying to get themselves back on top of the college football mountain after a few mediocre years. They have a new coach, a new athletic director, and possibly a new attitude. They may also have a new QB. Texas is reportedly leading the pack in the chase for former USC QB Max Wittek. Wittek was once a top recruit, but never did much at USC. He has ruled out a transfer to TCU, and is apparently choosing between Texas and Hawaii. He would have a better chance to play at Hawaii, but Texas is obviously the better program.
3/6/14: Texas' new athletic director Steve Patterson may be moving to allow alcohol sales at Texas Longhorn football games in the near future, possibly as soon as the 2014 season. The athletic department reportedly has approved sale of beer and wine for men's basketball games this season. Baseball would be next, and football then in the fall. The Longhorns would be the third Big 12 program to allow such sales, following in the footsteps of Iowa State and West Virginia. Of course, it comes down to money. West Virginia made a lot off beer sales, and all programs (including Texas) are always on the lookout for additional revenue streams.
2/27/14: Texas is not sending as many players to the NFL as they have in the past, and they certainly do not have a 'must have' prospect out there like Ricky Williams or Vince Young (of course, that may be a good thing for NFL teams). They do have wide receiver Mike Davis on the board this year, a year that is chalked full of WR goodness. Davis had an up and down career at Texas and is now looking for his NFL shot. He totaled 200 receptions, 2,752 yards and 18 touchdowns in his time with the Longhorns, and should get a chance to make a pro squad.
2/20/14: Texas Longhorns like to believe that they have been a dominant powerhouse in college football since time began. That is glossing over the fact that the Longhorns were middle of the road for decades until Mack Brown showed up in the late 90's and brought them back to prominence. They are an average team right now, and new head coach Charlie Strong's greatest challenge is "putting the T back in Texas". The Longhorns have been lapped by Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and even Baylor in recent years, but the state's flagship program should not be down too long.
2/13/14: Fans and boosters of the Texas Longhorns do not like to wait and they do not like to lose. Like it or not, it will probably not be a one year turnaround for the program. Texas has all the resources anyone could ask for, but they need a bit of time to get their recruits involved and understanding new head coach Charlie Strong's philosophy. The Longhorns landed QB Jerrod Heard in the 2014 recruiting class, and he could be the next great Texas QB in the long-term. In the short term, four star receiver Armanti Foreman could provide more impact.
2/6/14: If you thought that Texas has reached its potential in its reach, then you are sorely mistaken. New Texas Athletic director Steve Patterson has some big plans, and those plans include playing games in Mexico. There will be some who will say that Texas' reach almost destroyed the Big 12 Conference (indeed, Nebraska, Colorado, Texas A&M, and Missouri all left), but the program has to continually grow, and Mexico is a logical next step. In the future, there may be Longhorns games south of the border, which is actually good for all of college football, as it helps the game grow to new markets.
1/30/14: Every year, there are a few teams that come out of nowhere to surprise everyone with a great record. That is the exception. The rule is that several years of top recruiting build national championship contenders. Right now, the Longhorns have 22 commits in their recruiting class, which is ranked 17th in the nation and second in the Big 12. The top commit is defensive end Derick Roberson out of San Antonio. He is ranked as the number four DE prospect and the number 64 over all prospect. The Longhorns also have a few strong wide receivers, which will help them open up the field down the road.
1/23/14: Just a week in to his job and new head coach Charlie Strong has a minor controversy on his hands. Prominent billionaire booster (and former Minnesota Vikings owner) Red McCombs went on the radio and blasted the hire of Strong as the new head coach. Strong, to his credit, remained professional about the whole ordeal and McCombs later apologized. It is interesting to note that Strong was the defensive coordinator for Will Muschamp at Florida. Muschamp was the coach-in-waiting at Texas before leaving for Florida - so this could have been his job, rather than his former assistant Charlie Strong.
1/16/14: Well that escalated quickly. Texas announced last week that they were hiring Louisville head coach Charlie Strong to replace Mack Brown. Louisville, in turn, announced that they were bringing back Bobby Petrino. Petrino made Louisville a power, then left for the Atlanta Falcons, then quit during the season to be the head coach at Arkansas, then got into a sticky situation with a female staffer and a motorcycle accident. He ended up at Western Kentucky. Now he is back to Louisville to complete the circle. Hope Strong is smarter than that at his first chance as a head coach in a big time program.
1/9/14: The search for the next head football coach at the University of Texas is finally over, so we can all get on with our lives. The Longhorns plucked Louisville head coach Charlie Strong to run the program, which some refer to as the best job in college football. This came after a lot of head coaches got raises and extension while the search was going on (Jimbo Fisher, Nick Saban, Art Briles, etc.). It is perfect timing for Strong. Louisville will be in a transition year, heading into the ACC. Also, star QB Teddy Bridgewater is declaring early for the NFL draft, which is a tough replacement.
1/2/14: The Mack Brown Era at Texas is finally over. Texas played Oregon in the Alamo Bowl, and unfortunately, were blown out. But this game was more of paying respect to Brown in his 16 years as head coach. Brown actually may have been a victim of his own success. He revitalized the program and took them to two BCS Championship Games, winning one. Pundits now call the Texas job the best in college football, however, the expectations are sky-high. The Longhorns can cross Jimbo Fisher off of their wish list, as he just signed an extension to stay at Florida State.
12/26/13: Now that the media hype has worn off on will head coach Mack Brown be back next season (not as head coach), the speculation is at full tilt on who will be his successor. Nick Saban is out. San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh says he is not interested. In fact, it is hard to find someone who says that he is interested in the job. Reports recently say that Jon Gruden has interest, but that would be a flashy hire and may not be in the best interest of the program. The truth is that while it is a great job, the expectations are so high that it is almost impossible to succeed immediately.
12/19/13: After a week of intense speculation, information and misinformation, there appears to finally be resolution to Mack Brown's status as head coach of the University of Texas. Brown officially announced his resignation from the position last weekend. He will coach one more game - the Alamo Bowl against Oregon on December 30th in San Antonio, Texas. Now the speculation will run on his successor. Nick Saban just signed an extension with Alabama, so he is likely out of the running. Other names may include Jimbo Fisher (Florida State), Art Briles (Baylor), and Todd Graham (Arizona State).
12/12/13: For a few hours, the stars seemed to align and there was a chance that Texas could be the unlikely winner of the Big 12 Conference. Oklahoma summoned their best game of the year to knock off Oklahoma State in the Bedlam Game, meaning all Texas had to do was beat Baylor. Unfortunately, Baylor won that game and earned a birth in the Fiesta Bowl. The Longhorns, instead, will play in the Valero Bowl in San Antonio on December 30th. It should be an interesting matchup though, as Texas will play the Oregon Ducks and essentially have a homefield advantage.
12/5/13: The Longhorns are a team that many would have you think are not very good and are fighting for a bowl appearance this year. But that is not reality. After hammering Texas Tech 41-16 on Thanksgiving, UT is 8-3 overall and 7-1 in the Big 12. That actually means they have a chance to win the Big 12 Championship and make a BCS Bowl Game appearance (likely the Fiesta Bowl). Their only Big 12 loss was to Oklahoma State. If Texas can beat #9 Baylor in the season finale, then they will be at worst second in the conference, and can win outright should OSU fall to Oklahoma. Worst case scenario is the Alamo Bowl, which is not such a bad landing spot after the team started 1-2. Of course, there is always the possibility of Texas vs. Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl - which would be a great game for any college football fan.
