The junior was supposed to take the leap this season. So far, it hasn’t happened.

Quite a compliment. Despite being a true freshman, Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger has won over teammates and fans with a series of strong, tough performances.

Slow starts have been a theme for Texas this season, especially on offense. It cost the ‘Horns against Oklahoma.

An improving Texas team will continue to be tested by tough schedule

Tom Herman says the Texas rebuild is on schedule in effort and physicality

Playing hard is no longer the issue — now it’s about playing smarter. So much for just putting the icing on the cake and winning a lot of games.
