When projecting Swoopes' potential, it's really anybody's guess

What is Tyrone Swoopes' potential? There might not be a quarterback in the country whose potential is more of a mystery. After last season's ups and downs, Swoopes isn't even guaranteed of being the Texas Longhorns' starting quarterback when the 2015 season starts on Sept. 5 at Notre Dame.That honor might fall to redshirt freshman Jerrod Heard, but that's certainly not a guarantee...

Notre Dame Opens As 12.5 Point Favorite Over Texas

Notre Dame  may not know who it is going to start at quarterback, but there is one thing that is pretty certain--their options are better than what Texas has. Longhorns head coach said last year's starter, Tyrone Swoopes, is much improved, but to anyone that watched him play last season that's as good as saying he's gone from crap-tastic to just plain bad.Both defenses should be...

Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong previously indicated Tyrone Swoopes might not have a firm grip on the starting quarterback job, when he said redshirt freshman Jerrod Heard was “closing the gap” in the competition.

Charlie Strong Has QB Tyrone Swoopes Apologize to Kid He Hit in the Face With a Pass During the Game

Ever since he took over the program, Charlie Strong has made it clear that he intends to create more than just football players at Texas. No, he wants his Longhorns to be good people as well.

Charlie Strong Forgot QB Tyrone Swoopes’ First Name During Deposition

The strange case between Texas assistant coach Joe Wickline and Oklahoma State over a contract dispute got pretty comical during Longhorn head coach Charlie Strong’s deposition. When asked about quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, Strong totally blanked on his player’s first name. Oops. — cuppycup (@cuppycup) April 10, 2015 Swoopes started 12 games for...

WATCH: Texas Longhorns QB Tyrone Swoopes Gets Team on the Scoreboard

There have been times this season when Texas Longhorns quarterback Tyrone Swoopes has looked pretty good. There have been even more when he could not get the offense to move an inch let alone a yard.

Texas Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes “Expects” The Longhorns To Make The College Football Playoff

No one expects a player to admit that his team will not reach the highest level, especially not just four weeks into the season. However, it certainly seems unlikely that with two losses already, Texas will find a way into the inaugural College Football Playoff. Don’t tell that to quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, however: Texas QB Tyrone Swoopes said he “expects to be in the College...
