Texas heads into Year 2 with head coach Tom Herman with the hopes that consistency at quarterback and an improved offensive line can shore up the issues that plagued Texas in 2017.
Herman is addressing the media for his weekly press conference on Longhorn Network at 12:00 p.m. CT.
Texas football coach Tom Herman said he can't remember the last time he's had so much fun with a group of guys. Said they are super close.— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) August 27, 2018
Herman: "I think our freshmen, whether they were here in the spring or during the summer, you’re going to see a lot of them play because they deserve it."— Brian Davis (@BDavisAAS) August 27, 2018
.@CoachTomHerman: "We feel extremely good about our QB situation. Sam has certainly embraced being the starting QB, and has had a good week of practice. Shane Buechele, to his credit, what a team guy." #HookEm— Joe Cook (@josephcook89) August 27, 2018
Still no decision on the kicker: Josh Rowland or Cameron Dicker.— Justin Wells (@justinwells2424) August 27, 2018
Herman hopes one separates this week. #HookEm
Tom Herman said that the starting five on the offensive line are playing at "a level that no one has seen around here in a long time".— Geoff Ketchum (@gkketch) August 27, 2018
Herman on naming Ehlinger over Buechele: "Shane made it very difficult to make that decision, probably the hardest decision I’ve had to make as a head coach and coordinator."— Brian Davis (@BDavisAAS) August 27, 2018
As he's said repeatedly when asked recently, Tom Herman described the play-calling situation as collaborative. "We'll all be calling plays on offense."— Wescott Eberts (@SBN_Wescott) August 27, 2018
