The media drumbeat ahead of the Texas Longhorns entering the SEC this summer is growing louder. That includes Late Kick host Josh Pate’s recent prediction of a Texas powerhouse football program to come in the program’s Steve Sarkisian era.

“This could be an evergreen prediction,” Pate said, per 247Sports. “Keep saying it. Like predicting Saban’s retirement — keep predicting it every year, because eventually you’ll get it right. Keep predicting this, because Texas is going to have a shot every year.”

“They had such a shot this past year,” Pate later added. “Think about how perfectly it lined up for Texas. You got the semifinal in New Orleans against a team that’s halfway to Alaska, and then you got the final in Houston. It didn’t happen. Doesn’t mean it can’t happen.”
