Tom Herman talks rebuilding.

We’re here for a reason and that’s to rebuild this thing from a bunch of years of mediocrity and sub-mediocrity.

Herman is on a journey.

Are the Horns average?

The Longhorns’ 3-3 record also begs the question: Is this team going to make a bowl game? Columnist Kirk Bohls went there, analyzing what Texas has remaining on its schedule and what the adjusted expectations should be for a team that had high hopes coming into the season. As Bohls states, “the Cactus Bowl is starting to sound pretty good.”

What does a successful first season look like for Herman?

Sam Ehlinger was not injured when he returned to the game last Saturday.

Mullet Mike has had success against Texas.

In spite of that discrepancy in resources, and with the University of Texas being in the heart of such a tremendous territory for high school talent, the 10th-ranked Cowboys are 7½-point favorites to get a fifth consecutive win at Texas’ Royal Memorial Stadium.

The song of the day, sung by Willie and Waylon.
