Seniors put on alert to keep pushing Longhorns through rough times

When senior offensive lineman Sedrick Flowers called out a teammate for being ill-prepared to play following Saturday's loss to Oklahoma State, Flowers wasn't called out by his coaches.

Duke Thomas: Texas QB Tyrone Swoopes is now a trash talker

Now, that's not to suggest that Swoopes suddenly developed some incredible physical skills...

Reigning national champion Ohio State was a rare exception in 2014 as it claimed the title with its third-string quarterback. There might not have been another team in America that could have pulled that off. Certainly the Texas Longhorns will need their best players to stay on the field in 2015 if they're going to have any hope of giving TCU, Baylor and others a scare. Last year...
