    Longhorn Republic: November 30, 2021 - Kansas State Recap

    Longhorn Republic: November 30, 2021 - Kansas State Recap

    The Texas Longhorns managed to snap their six-game losing streak and with their 22-17 win over the Kansas State Jayhawks, sending the senior class out on a relatively high note.
    The game hinged on the performance of junior running back Roschon Johnson, who served as a wildcat quarterback for the majority of the game - allowing Texas to both compensate for the injuries to the quarterback as well as control the pace of the game. He finished with a career-high 31 carries and 173 yards and a touchdown, capitalizing on the numbers advantage created by the formation.
    Defensively, Texas managed its best third-down performance of the year, thanks in-part to the fact that they saw the field less than they had all season and won time of possession for the first time since TCU.

    Longhorn Republic: November 25 2021 - Kansas State Wildcats Preview

    Longhorn Republic: November 25 2021 - Kansas State Wildcats Preview

    The Texas Longhorns have one more shot to snap the losing streak, welcoming in an equally injured but much more successful Kansas State Wildcats team to close out the regular season.
    Kansas State is potentially without quarterback Skylar Thompson, who is dealing with a significant injury suffered against the Baylor Bears a week ago. Two untested backups are set to relive him, so the Wildcats will likely lean on star running back Deuce Vaughn, who currently sits No. 4 in the conference in rushing yards and second in touchdowns. They also bring with them one of the scariest rushers in the conference Felix Anudike-Uzomah - who leads the Big 12 in sacks and sits just one-half sack behind Jalen Pitre for the conference high in tackles for loss.
    What will it take for a battered Texas team to close this season out with some pride and a win?

    Longhorn Republic: November 22 2021 - West Virginia Mountaineers Recap

    Longhorn Republic: November 22 2021 - West Virginia Mountaineers Recap

    The Texas Longhorns saw their hopes for a bowl game go up in smoke Saturday as they fell to the West Virginia Mountaineers, extending the losing streak to six games in the process.
    The Longhorns once again saw a very winnable game slip away late, no thanks to injuries to both Casey Thompson and Hudson Card late in the game as they tried to mount their final comeback. The Texas defense gave up 459 yards - including 252 on explosive plays - while allowing the Mountaineers to convert on 60 percent of their third-down conversions. Jarret Doege had no problems with the Texas defense, passing for 290 yards and three touchdowns - without turning the ball over.
    Now Texas has one more chance as they welcome in the Kansas State Wildcats to Austin for Senior Day. With a win over KSU, they could snap the losing streak, send their seniors out with a much-needed win and close the season on a relatively positive note.

    Longhorn Republic: November 18, 2021 - West Virginia Mountaineers Preview

    Longhorn Republic: November 18, 2021 - West Virginia Mountaineers Preview

    The Texas Longhorns are in need of any sort of positive news.
    For the first time in school history, Texas lost to Kansas on the road - cementing their first five-game losing streak since 1956. Now the Longhorns head to Morgantown to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers in a literal must-win game if they want to avoid missing a bowl game for the first time since Charlie Strong's last year on the sidelines.
    The Mountaineers are in the same spot - sitting 4-6 on the year with just two weeks left to play. They've been the definition of up-and-down this season, taking the Oklahoma Sooners to the brink while also being blown out by the Baylor Bears and the Kansas State Wildcats. What do the Mountaineers bring to the table and what, if anything, can Texas do to stop the current skid?

    Longhorn Republic: November 16 2021 - Kansas Jayhawks Reaction

    Longhorn Republic: November 16 2021 - Kansas Jayhawks Reaction

    For the first time in school history, the Texas Longhorns lost a home game to the Kansas Jayhawks - extending the historic losing streak to five games. For the first time since before DKR roamed the sidelines, Texas has lost five in a row.
    The Longhorns put up one of their best offensive performances of the year, but couldn't overcome a flat performance in the first half that dug them into the hole. So where do they go from here? Is there anything to learn about this team and the future under the current coaching staff? Can they win their final two games and salvage an already disastrous first season under Steve Sarkisian?
    We also dive in on the to big basketball games on the weekend, as well as soccer and cross country competing for national championships.

    Winning is Hard: Aftermath of the Kansas loss, Positive takeaways, and Bijan's Injury Update

    Despite the loss to Kansas, the Texas Longhorns football season continues and Wescott Eberts and Cameron Parker break the game among other things on the latest “Winning is Hard” podcast.
    Wescott shares his thoughts (1:30) on the program's current state plus why Steve Sarkisian is not on the hot seat despite claims from national and local media that he is.
    We dive into how this loss may impact recruiting (3:00) with some of the Longhorns top targets in attendance. Plus, the Evan Stewart recruitment (5:00) and Sark’s pitch to the wideout after the impressive performance of Xavier Worthy this season.
    At the 7:00 minute mark, we touch on Worthy’s incredible game against Kansas as well as Marcus Washington and the outstanding season Casey Thompson is having in lew of his thumb injury.
    Then we examine Pete Kwiatkowski’s defense (10:30) and why we don’t expect Sark to fire the defensive coordinator.
    Sadly, we discuss the injury news of Bijan Robinson, Josh Thompson, and Jonathon Brooks (17:00) and the good news about Jordan Whittington.
    We wrap up with quick thoughts on Texas basketball after their loss to No. 1 Gonzaga and the questions Chris Beard is facing with his rotation.
