Offense Is Fun Again!

Daily Round Up: Wednesday, October 11, 2017

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

Sam Ehlinger will probably be the guy on Saturday and offense is fun again!

Sam Ehlinger may be the straw that stirs the drink, but it helps when the drink has the right ingredients - AKA 10 personnel with Collin Johnson, Reggie Hemphill-Mapps and Lil’Jordan Humphrey on the field sans a liability at left tackle.

The team has momentum.

After moving to 2–0 in the conference with a home win over the Wildcats, Jefferson and his teammates are starting to believe. The last time Texas started 2–0 in the Big 12 was in 2013, when only two members on the Longhorns’ current roster were on that team.

Malik Jefferson is living up to his potential.

Jefferson meshed with new defensive coordinator Todd Orlando and Orlando's aggressive scheme. Orlando said he sees a different player now than the one on past film and praised Jefferson's intelligence and maturity.

Once the Horns are really back, the OU-Texas rivalry will be great again.

However, it might be on its way back there. Any college football fan knows what this rivalry means, but if Texas can continue on the trajectory they’re on with Tom Herman, non-college football fans will know what the rivalry means.

There is no doubt that college football is the reason for his suffering. At UT, Julius and his fellow teammates were taught to use their heads to block. As an offensive lineman and tight end, Julius took hits to the head on a near-daily basis for four years. These concussive and sub-concussive hits have a direct link to diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Take a trip back to the 1977 Texas-OU game.
