Texas had some big wins on the recruiting trail, but couldn’t get the job done on the hardwood.

In this week’s Longhorn Republic, Gerald Goodridge and Kyle Carpenter get excited about a bumper crop of Texas Longhorns recruits inking on National Signing Day 2018 and look at their favorite parts of the class (1:36).

Then they move onto the Texas Longhorns’ struggles against Kansas State (8:54) and TCU (13:49), which seem to be tied to the performance of Mohamed Bamba and the Texas bigs. However, not all is lost as women’s basketball continues to surge (17:46) and baseball season is right around the corner (18:28).

As always, the boys honor Big Bertha and Bang the Drum (20:00). Kyle celebrates record-breaking feats on the track and Gerald again wishes tempered expectations for Texas fans.
