LOOK: Texas QB Sam Ehlinger buys donuts for his OL

The youth of Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger clearly belies his understanding of a football truism — if you take care of your big uglies, your big uglies will take care of you.

As a result, Ehlinger bought donuts for his offensive line on Monday after the patchwork group helped him avoid taking a single sack against the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday night.

Surely, Ehlinger’s remarkable pocket presence and escapability played a significant role in that regard, but that’s no reason to avoid giving the offensive line credit for a performance that was better than anyone expected.

And so Ehlinger once again provided some perspective on why everyone around the program has so much respect for him — he gets it.
