What if, in a galaxy far, far away from the Forty Acres, several of the Texas Longhorns’ key offensive and defensive weapons opted to return for a fifth-season, as the NCAA granted athletes this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What if one of those athletes was named, say, Sam Ehlinger? That’s the question at hand among many Longhorn fans right now.
It’s also unlikely.
Happy Friday. Let’s get on with the news.
