Is two better than one? If it's QBs not always, but Horns might try

It's often said in football that if you play two quarterbacks you don't really have one quarterback you trust.   Texas Longhorns coach Charlie Strong is entertaining a two-QB system to start the 2015 season with Tyrone Swoopes, last season's raw and at times uninspiring starter, and Jerrod Heard, a redshirt freshman whose next snap in an actual game will be his first.   The two...

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...

Charlie Strong says Tyrone Swoopes is Texas’ No. 1 QB

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. That is why he has his five core values that have been widely publicized (and have brought an end to a few careers during Charlie's reign).While the core values are something that are emphasized...

WATCH: Jerrod Heard With Some Sweet Feet and Pinpoint Throws in Practice for the Texas Longhorns

Last season the Texas Longhorns were forced to shove Tyrone Swoopes out of the nest and in to the starting line-up when David Ash went down for the season. At times he looked like what the Longhorns needed behind center, but overall what they saw was not enough to secure him the job for next season. Heck, it wasn't enough for his head coach to even learn his name.Swoopes is in a...

The Texas Longhorns quarterback competition is starting to heat up. According to a report on 247 Sports, Texas head coach Charlie Strong is becoming increasingly impressed with redshirt freshman signal-caller Jerrod Heard.

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. Unfortunately during the Texas Bowl it was the latter.He did, however, manage to get some offense going late in the second quarter that ended with him making a nine-yard dash in to the...

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...
