Bevo's Daily Roundup - September 1, 2010


Horns_bullet_mediumTexas has speed. Lots of speed.

What Brown is most excited about in the unit is the team's punt block/return group, which consists of cornerbacks Curtis Brown and Aaron Williams, speedster receiver Marquise Goodwin and safeties Christian Scott and Kenny Vaccaro. Whoever is not returning the punt will be trying to block the punt on the line.


Horns_bullet_medium A run game! Woo hoo!

Texas will still pass. A lot. Some things don't change.

But — and here's the kicker — that's not all the Longhorns are going to do.

By getting under center and running downhill more — something advocated here for the last three seasons — Texas will set up more effective, play-action passes, keep the clock running, allow the defense to remain fresher for the fourth quarter and take pressure off a young quarterback. It will pound away with new 251-pound starting tailback Cody Johnson.


Horns_bullet_medium  Meet Dravannti Johnson, Texas strongside linebacker.


Horns_bullet_medium  Bob has a winner! Someone has finally nailed down the kicker spott in Norman.

Coach Bob Stoops announced on his weekly radio show Tuesday night that walk-on sophomore Patrick O’Hara has won the kicking job.


Horns_bullet_medium  NewsOK breaks down the Land Thieves by position.

Offensive line: Bob Stoops is adamant the line is improved. But considering how inconsistent the unit was last year, and considering it has to replace its three best blockers (Trent Williams, Brody Eldridge, Brian Simmons) this line has a lot to prove.

Grade: C



Horns_bullet_medium  Bob Stoops is developing a taste for cupcakes.

"It's only good if you win and you don't get your quarterback hurt," Stoops said during Monday's Big 12 teleconference. "If you lose and get your quarterback hurt like we did a year ago with Sam Bradford, then it isn't any good. In the end, that's the bottom line. It's high risk. Anymore it's fairly low reward."


Horns_bullet_mediumAggie QB Jerrod Johnson is still recovering from off-season shoulder surgery

Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman downplayed the seriousness of quarterback Jerrod Johnson's sore right shoulder Monday. Johnson is still recovering from off-season surgery on the shoulder, but he will start the season opener against Stephen F. Austin on Saturday in College Station.

The senior, who was named the Big 12's preseason first-team quarterback, was held to a minimal number of throws in Friday's practice. Johnson did not throw at all over the weekend.


Horns_bullet_medium  Really? Mike Sherman feels that playing Sam Houston State Stephen F. Austin is just like playing Texas, OU, Nebraska or Baylor.

"It's no different than playing Texas or Nebraska or Oklahoma or Baylor or anyone else," Sherman told reporters.

Well, okay. I can see the Baylor comparison.


Horns_bullet_medium Bo Pelini should not expect a lot of sweet goodbyes.

Folks in those old Big Eight haunts already are planning raucous sendoffs.

The message from Iowa State fan Adam Gray: "Don't let the door hit you on the way out."

Kansas State fan Tyler Fike said, "There is some resentment, but I don't think it will come to riots."


Horns_bullet_mediumShould Vince Young get the 2005 Heisman?


Horns_bullet_medium  Now they are taking it out on defenseless animals. Don't try to tell me this was just some big old coincidence.

Those who found the Texas longhorn show at the Nebraska State Fair saw a good show with good, quality animals.

However, it was a smaller crowd watching the show, partly because of its out-of-the-way location near the outdoor arena at Thompson Arena.

“There’s not much foot traffic,” said Vicki Smeal of Snyder, Nebraska Texas Longhorn Association secretary. “We usually have a larger audience, but we’re kind of off the beaten path here.”
