    Longhorn Blitz: Wrapping up the 2021 season and a Texas-centric look at the coaching carousel

    Longhorn Blitz: Wrapping up the 2021 season and a Texas-centric look at the coaching carousel

    Rod Babers, Matt Butler and Jeff Howe are back to discuss a 22-17 win over Kansas State that snapped a six-game losing streak and ended the 2021 season with Steve Sarkisian and Co. able to take something positive into the offseason. After the Longhorns beat the Wildcats, however, all hell broke loose in college football and the moves of Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley to USC and Notre Dame's Brian Kelly to LSU make it worth examining how Texas handled last offseason's coaching change.

    You can get the latest Longhorn news and analysis at Horns247. The Horn, Austin's home for University of Texas athletics, airs Longhorn Blitz Tuesday night at 7 p.m. and is where Rod (3-7 p.m.) and Jeff (10 a.m.-12 p.m.) can be heard on the air daily.

    The Flagship: Previewing Texas' regular-season finale vs. Kansas State

    The Flagship: Previewing Texas' regular-season finale vs. Kansas State

    In this week's Flagship Podcast interview, we talk to Tim Fitzgerald, publisher of GoPowercat.com, about this week's game between Texas and Kansas State and so much more.

    If you don't follow @LifeOfFitz on social media, you're missing out, because of Fitzy's whimsical views on life.

    So, of course, our conversation starts with his impressions of the Longhorns' season from his viewpoint in Manhattan, Kan., and all of his observations.

    Yes, there is plenty of talk about the Wildcats (7-4, 4-4 Big 12), who are likely to be without their starting quarterback Skylar Thompson for Friday's game (which likely means sophomore Will Howard getting the start).

    We talk about K-State coach Chris Klieman in Year 3 on the job and whether Klieman "feels like a fit" in Manhattan after taking over for legendary coach Bill Snyder (who has a book coming out Nov. 30 called "My Football Life - And The Rest Of The Story").

    What would a conversation about K-State be without discussing their heart-and-soul player on offense - 5-foot-5 running back Deuce Vaughn - of Cedar Ridge in Round Rock - who leads the Wildcats in rushing (1,115 yards, 5.9 ypc, 14 TDs) and receptions (45 for 464 and 3 TDs).

    Fitzgerald talks about the other skill players on offense to keep an eye on, including receiver Malik Knowles, who is also a huge threat in the return game (with two kick returns for touchdowns this season).

    On defense, the conversation starts with "King Felix" - sophomore defensive end Felix Anudike-Uzomah, who leads the Big 12 in sacks (11) and leads the nation in forced fumbles (six). Fitzy details how Anudike-Uzomah is yet another diamond in the rough (few others were recruiting) who has turned into a star for the Wildcats.

    The Wildcats have won four of their last five, including victories over Texas Tech and TCU, which were quickly followed by both of those schools announcing the firing of their head coaches (Matt Wells and Gary Patterson, respectively). Fitzgerald talks about those games and how the aftermaths of those games affected Klieman.

    We talk to Fitzy about Andre Coleman, a K-State legend who is now the receivers coach at Texas, as well as what the Wildcats could look like in 2022 as well as some K-State hoops. It's great Thanksgiving week entertainment.

    Longhorn Blitz: Turning the page to 2022 as a disappointing season winds down

    Longhorn Blitz: Turning the page to 2022 as a disappointing season winds down

    Rod Babers, Matt Butler and Jeff Howe are back to discuss a 31-23 loss to West Virginia that brought a level of closure to an incredibly-disappointing 2021 season. Texas is guaranteed to finish with a losing record no matter what happens in Friday's season finale against Kansas State, meaning a critical offseason for Steve Sarkisian's tenure will begin over the weekend.
    You can get the latest Longhorn news and analysis at Horns247. The Horn, Austin's home for University of Texas athletics, airs Longhorn Blitz Tuesday night at 7 p.m. and is where Rod (3-7 p.m.) and Jeff (10 a.m.-12 p.m.) can be heard on the air daily.

    The Flagship: Bijan Robinson will play for Texas in 2022

    The Flagship: Bijan Robinson will play for Texas in 2022

    The Longhorns' 2021 season may not have gone the way anyone expected, but even without post season on the table, Texas football has some positive news to celebrate this Thanksgiving week after sophomore running back Bijan Robinson confirmed his plans to return to the Longhorns to play for the 2022 season.
    The Flagship Podcast gets the week started off with a loaded show with Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes talking all things Texas football as the Longhorns prepare for their final game of the 2021 season. The Flagship weighs in on Steve Sarkisian's remarks about adding a transfer portal QB option as he prepares to open up the quarterback competition leading into the 2022 season. Chip and Taylor discuss what this means for the future of Casey Thompson and Hudson Card with the Longhorns and what to expect from the quarterback battle moving forward. The Flagship also talks about the huge news coming out of Monday's press conference that sophomore RB Bijan Robinson has no thoughts of sitting out the 2022 season to prepare for the NFL Draft. After a quick break, The Flagship returns with our 'Love it or leave it' segment, with this week's topics focused on if either Thompson or Card will transfer from Texas with Sarkisian's plans to re-open the QB competition in 2022, what Robinson's return means for the offense, what to expect from the Longhorns this Friday against Kansas State and much more!
    Texas fans won't want to miss this loaded episode of The Flagship Podcast.
