Horns_bullet_mediumThe special teams needs to step up this year.

Texas has a lot to replace on special teams. When you lose the most accurate field goal kicker in school history in Hunter Lawrence, and a return man who tied the school record in punt returns for touchdowns in Jordan Shipley, it’s time for new people to step up.


Horns_bullet_medium  MBTF caught up with Garrett Gilbert this summer.

How are summer workouts going?
The seniors have really taken a leadership role. Seven-on-seven is going really well. I’ve enjoyed being able to get out there and get timing back with the receivers and compete against the guys and really get after it.  It’s become like a rivalry with the offense and defense, so we’re having a good time.

How do summer workouts prepare you for the season?
This is the hottest time of the year, and obviously two-a-days will still be tough, but being able to get out there and work in the sun and run and lift will prepare us more than anything.


Horns_bullet_medium  We are scared of Cougar High.

That's the bottom line in all of this. The Aggies and Longhorns won't play UH because they're afraid of UH. They would rather play Louisiana Monroe or Central Florida or UTEP or Stephen F. Austin or Florida International. They don't fear those schools. Even if they lose a game to one of those schools, it doesn't haunt them the way losing to UH does.

It's sad on so many levels. For one thing, the UH-Texas game once meant something. These were emotional games, important to both sides. If you ranked the toughest losses in Texas history, UH would show up high on the list a couple of times.


Horns_bullet_medium  Meet Texas recruit Josh Turner.

Turner, who will play cornerback in college, is the No. 1 player on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list.

Not only is Turner an outstanding football player, he's a top student (he scored a 20 on the ACT in eighth grade), took on a leadership role with the Falcons early and has worked a pair of jobs this summer around his football work.

"You don't find many 17-year-old kids that are as big of recruits as Josh who do all of those things," Millwood assistant Kevin Cox said. "That's just how Josh is. He takes a huge role in his siblings' lives. He's that way with his younger teammates, too."


Horns_bullet_mediumThe Cornhuskers are looking forward to their last season in the Big 12.

Horns_bullet_medium  Who are the Big 12's top quarterbacks?


Horns_bullet_mediumDennis Dodd combined all the preseason college football polls. This should make the Cornhuskers happy.

7. (tie) Texas: Adding physicality to offense. Highest rank, No. 4. Lowest rank, No. No. 11 (91 points. Avg. rank between No. 7 and No. 8)

Nebraska: Fitting that these two are tied. They hate each other. Highest rank, No. 5. Lowest rank, No. 11 (91 points. Average rank between No. 7 and No. 8)


Horns_bullet_medium  ESPN's David Ubben has the Big 12 South preview.


Horns_bullet_mediumAre you looking for work? How about a USC compliance officer?
