NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • Texas is opening as a double digit favorite over the Baylor Bears.
  • The oldest living Longhorn letterman, John Henderson, passed away over the weekend. He was 107 years old, the Dallas Morning News reports. From the Morning News: “Henderson played guard for Texas and lettered in his senior season, playing under head coaches Clyde Littlefield and Jack Chevigny in his four seasons. After his graduation, he attended at least one Texas football game for 84 consecutive seasons until 2019, and was a charter member of the Longhorn Foundation. Henderson served as an honorary captain for Texas’ win over Kansas State in 2013.”
  • Texas wide receiver Jordan Whittington is expected to miss some time, 247Sports reports. From 247Sports: “Whittington finally seemed to get his Texas career going after catching 10 passes for 65 yards, including a long reception of 20 yards, in UT’s 53-45, four-OT loss to Oklahoma on Oct. 10. But Whittington’s abdominal, soft-tissue injury surfaced after the game, the source said. With the exception of the 2019 season opener against Louisiana Tech, Whittington’s freshman season in 2019 was wiped out after Whittington needed surgery last September and a follow-up surgery in December to repair an aggravation of a sports hernia injury he suffered in high school at Cuero.”
