    August 3, 2021 - SEC Official and OL Preview

    August 3, 2021 - SEC Official and OL Preview

    The Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners have officially accepted an invitation to join the SEC.
    In a whirlwind week, both schools informed the Big 12 they would not renew their grant of rights, petitioned the SEC for an invite, were invited via a unanimous decision and accepted an invite. All within five days. Now that the dust has settled, for now, the legal battles and political jockeying begins by other schools and members of the Texas Senate to ask questions of Texas at the very least. Texas and Oklahoma have both said they intend to let the Grant of Rights expire on its own, but it seems far more likely that both schools depart sooner rather than later.
    In spite of all of the non-sports action, there is football to be played in just a few weeks, so we continue our season preview series and highlight the offensive line. Texas returns several players who have seen a ton of play, but could use some help with consistency - something Kyle Flood should look to fix early. The Longhorns also benefit from a young anchor in the middle of the line in Jake Majors and an up-and-comer on the ouside in Andrej Karic.

    July 29, 2021 - Conference Realignment and Baylor Preview

    July 29, 2021 - Conference Realignment and Baylor Preview

    In spite of the current drama with the SEC, the Texas Longhorns have at least one more season to play in the Big 12, which means our conference preview series continues. One of the teams that is currently trying to figure out what their fate is - both on the field and off the field - are the Baylor Bears, who are coming off of a season of struggle in 2020.
    New head coach Dave Aranda was put in the unenviable position of trying to implement new systems on both sides of the ball after losing the entirety of spring practice due to COVID-19 closures. They struggled with consistency on both sides of the ball, starting with Charlie Brewer - who took the opportunity to transfer to the Utah Utes in the offseason. How will offensive coordinator Jeff Grimes turn that unit around, in an effort to take some pressure off of the defense in the process?

    July 27, 2021 - Texas Leaves the Big 12 and WR Preview

    The Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners have officially declared their intentions to leave the Big 12, paving the way for an application to the SEC. The timeline is unclear, but it seems like it will be sooner rather than later. What happens to the other schools and what do we think will be the impact for Texas?
    We also dive in on the wide receiver group, where Texas has a ton of talent but needs to find proven targets and weapons as Steve Sarkisian takes over for the Longhorns. Who do we expect to break out and be big contributors in 2021?

    July 20, 2021 - Big 12 Media Days and OSU Preview

    As we rapidly approach football season, three Texas Longhorns made their way to Dallas for Big 12 media days, Bijan Robinson, Keondre Coburn and new head coach Steve Sarkisian. What did they share with the media and what are our thoughts on the non-controversy of the Big 12's taunting rules?
