Texas should see improved productivity from its running backs in 2018

Texas’ ground game struggled mightily in 2017, but should be much-improved in 2018 with the right personnel now in place. The Texas Longhorns ground game was nearly next to non-existent throughout the 2017 slate. Such a sentiment could realistically be nominated for understatement of the year. Just one season after D’Onta Forman scampered for 2,028 yards en route to the Doak...

Texas CB Kris Boyd is returning for his senior season

Becoming more consistent could lead to a big payday next year. On Friday, the NFL released the official list of underclassmen who have declared for this year’s draft and Texas Longhorns cornerback Kris Boyd was not on the list. There certainly weren’t any indications that he’d decided to become an early entrant since neither the school nor Boyd ever released a statement, but there...

A Good Win Over Tech

Texas beat No. 8 Texas Tech. “The thing about this league is teams being ranked and where they’re ranked will fluctuate some because people are going through a gauntlet of tough games,” Smart said. “There’s five or six teams in our league that could make an argument to be in the top 10, 15 or 20. “We’re not one of them yet; we’re trying to become one of them.

On Mo Bamba and the 3-point shooting question

Shaka Smart shared his thoughts on Monday about when his young star should pull from deep. Yelling at the big man to get his butt in the paint might as well be the college basketball equivalent of “run the dang ball” — a frequent refrain for crusty fans wanting to make the game great again through the lost art of low-post play. And, to be sure, there’s more than a shred of credibility...
