Recruiting Spotlight: Chris Nelson

Credit: Orlando Sentinel Along with Poona Ford, Lakeland (FL) Victory Christian Academy tackle Chris Nelson was a true life saver for the position that looks thinner by the day. Unlike Ford, Nelson is more of an unfinished project who reminds me of former Longhorn Chris Whaley. Nelson looks like a very raw athlete who has settled in to the tackle position after playing fullback and...

Is The Burnt Orange Sky Falling?

After a weekend of alleged turmoil with the 2014 Texas recruiting class, and the “chicken little” syndrome running rampant across the social media universe that is the Longhorns fan base, I think it is best for us to slow down a bit and take a look around. With that in mind, I have selected a few points I see being discussed across the fan base which need to be addressed or further...

With Cameron Ridley disqualified from the game with 5 fouls, the Texas Longhorns couldn’t afford to go to overtime with the Kansas State Wildcats. Thomas Gipson and Shane Southwell were driving the...
