Big 12 Football: standings after week 2

Heading into halftime, Baylor lead 35-21. And although the Big 12 isn’t keen on its defenses of the past much like the Pac-12, the conference based in the plains pulled through some second half wins. In week two of Big 12 action, TCU would rebound against its shaky start against Minnesota, while the Texas Longhorns ignited both their offense (which Rece Davis slammed Saturday morning...

Texas senior already questioning heart of younger players

Last year Texas' elder statesmen complained week after week about the doom-and-gloom attitude of many younger players. As soon as something bad happened, heads flopped. That same sentiment is already being voiced this season after one game. In fact, after one Notre Dame touchdown. Senior wide receive Daje Johnson voiced his discontent with the sour attitudes after the 38-3 pummeling...

Charlie Strong blasts Daje Johnson for drug dealing song

Earlier this summer, Texas Longhorns wide receiver Daje Johnson decided to show off his rapping ability by releasing a new song. Unfortunately, that song wasn’t very well received and for good reason. Johnson’s song was titled, “Dealer,” and it was about selling drugs; obviously not ideal for a Division I student-athlete. This week, during Big 12 media days, Texas head coach...

Charlie Strong’s Reaction To Texas Wide Receiver Daje Johnson’s Song “Dealer”: “You Must Not Be On The Team Anymore”

When Texas wide receiver Daje Johnson released a rap song called “Dealer,” the first thought most of us had was probably “this is a bad idea.” The second thought? “Charlie Strong is going to be PISSED.” As it turns out, we know the Texas head coach pretty well.

Texas player releases rap song about selling drugs

Well, this wasn’t exactly the smartest decision a player could have made. Texas Longhorns wide receiver Daje Johnson decided to share his new rap song with the world. The song is titled, “Dealer,” and the subject matter is something that the NCAA and Longhorns program probably didn’t want to be hearing about. In the song, Johnson raps about selling drugs. “If you lookin’...

Texas wide receiver Daje Johnson recently released a rap single titled, “Dealer,” and, well, it’s focused on a topic you don’t want a student-athlete to be rapping about.  The single, appropriately titled, is about dealing drugs.  The track opens, “If you lookin’ for the dealer, I got the plug. Probly catch him with the reefer.”  Here’s the full song. It contains...

Lacking one of Big 12's top 10 receivers leaves Texas only with hope

Quick, name just one Texas Longhorns wide receiver on the 2015 roster. Remarkably, it's not so easy. And in a conference where everybody's chucking it all over the field, the fact that Texas possesses so little experience and proven production at a key skill position is, at best, problematic. At worst, it can be catastrophic considering the Longhorns also aren't exactly feeling comfortable...

QB is hardly the only position battle raging into the fall

All eyes are certainly on the quarterback battle between Tyrone Swoopes and Jerrod Heard. The Longhorns are breaking in a new, up-tempo offense as well, and after the preposterously poor performance of last season's unit, it's no wonder that there's a jittery fandom tracking every move. But if Texas is going to get back into Big 12 contention, it's going to need more than a quarterback...

The Texas Longhorns coaching staff clearly sees wide receiver as a glaring weakness by the way it pursued the position on the 2015 recruiting trail, and continues to do so.There simply isn't a head-turning receiver on the roster, or at least not one that's emerged, with the type of fear factor seen on other Big 12 teams such as KD Cannon (and others) at Baylor, Josh Doctson (and...
