Wild rally falls short, No. 19 Texas loses at Iowa St

With less than 12 minutes left, Texas was staring at a 21-point deficit and the very strong possibility of a losing record in the Big 12. The Longhorns still lost, and they still fell below .500 in league play. They also nearly pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in school history. Georges Niang scored 19 points, Bryce Dejean-Jones had 18 and 15th-ranked Iowa State held off...

Just invited @billyliucci on the show tomorrow @YSportsRadio He can ask...

2 Texas Commits Imply They Know Something Others Don’t, Longhorns Will Have Huge Signing Day

Could the Texas Longhorns be quietly putting together an incredible 2015 recruiting class? If we’re to believe two UT commits – three-star defensive end Charles Omenihu and three-star defensive tackle Du’Vonta Lampkin – Charlie Strong could be doing some serious work behind the scenes. Omenihu and Lampkin, both of whom are firmly committed to the program and took visits this...

Texas DB Quandre Diggs Makes Sweet Interception During Senior Bowl

He has been one of the best players for the Texas Longhorns for years and will make a nice addition to someone's secondary in the NFL. Just in case his game film is not enough to make some NFL scouts take notice Diggs picked off a pass during the Senior Bowl Saturday and set up the offense with a very short field after a nice return.Well done. Well done indeed.via Bleacher ReportRead more »

Wednesday, seemingly out of nowhere, Texas A&M quarterback commit Kyler Murray, a five-star recruit from the state of Texas, tweeted out a photo of a Texas Longhorns jersey with no explanation.

Charlie Strong hasn’t aged since 1988, but he has less hair

Before he was the head coach of the Texas Longhorns, Charlie Strong worked a number of jobs. One of his first coaching jobs was at Florida. In fact, he spent four different stints at Florida as he bounced around gaining experience. You would think time has taken a toll on him, but this 1988 media guide photo shows Strong looks very much the same as he does today, except with more...

Texas Longhorns Center Cameron Ridley Shows Off Some Power Against West Virginia

Texas Longhorns center Cameron Ridley is a very big man (6'9' and 285 pounds). He is the kind of man that football coaches have probably tried to recruit off of the basketball team each and every season. It will not be surprising if NFL coaches invite him in to camp (assuming the NBA is not in his future). Could you imagine your favorite team with a big, powerful tight end like him...

As far as most fans are concerned the college football season is over--but it's not. There are still a few all-star type games that give seniors one more chance to show NFL scouts what they can do.
