A cautious optimism gave way to a complete takedown of the USC Trojans, so Kyle and Gearld take a few minutes to celebrate what went right for the Texas Longhorns (4:24). They discuss the evolution of Sam Ehlinger’s game, what Cameron Dicker’s development means to the team, and fawn a bit over Caden Sterns and Anthony Wheeler.

Texas hosted 60 recruits for the big matchup against USC, which means it’s time for a recruiting breakdown with Cody Daniel. Cody talks about what new committment Derrian Brown brings to Texas, where Texas stands with five-star talents Bru McCoy and Trey Sanders, and how Texas can hold off the Texas A&M Aggies for some key players (26:40).

As the Longhorns open conference play, the team looks at what Texas can do to match up against a TCU team that has historically had their number (44:42).

As always, the close the show out by honoring Big Bertha and Bang the Drum (59:50). Kyle looks at where freshman Joshua Moore draws his inspiration, and Gerald is happy that Texas fans may be coming around.
