Texas Longhorns junior safety Caden Sterns is taking a stand this season, he says.

According to a report in the Dallas Morning News, Sterns won’t sing “The Eyes of Texas” this season. “I don’t know,” Sterns said when asked what the team opt for as a group, per the Morning News, “but I won’t sing the song at all, just being blunt. As a team, we kind of talked about it but … I can’t answer for everybody else nor do I want to make it about me or anything like that, but personally I won’t sing the song.”

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • The Oklahoma Sooners are sitting atop the Austin American-Statesman’s Big 12 Power Poll, followed by Texas. From the Statesman: “Can former five-star prospect Spencer Rattler replace three straight NFL draft picks at quarterback without the Oklahoma offense missing a beat? He’ll be given ample opportunity with the Sooners returning depth and experience at wide receiver and along the offensive line. The defense took steps forward last season, and that unit should only improve in year two under defensive coordinator Alex Grinch. Running back is the real concern for Oklahoma.”
  • Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby expects more games to be delayed due to COVID-19, 247Sports reports. “I think all we can do is what we’ve been doing, and that is apply best practices, listen to the doctors and move ahead. But that doesn’t mean we couldn’t have multiple teams on a campus that have broad infection and have to shut things down,” Bowlsby said. “I don’t know that every school is going to have exactly the same experience. Some may get right through and get all their games in. Others may lose a game or two.”
