We are still nearly half a year away from the 2021 NFL Draft, but with the regular season of college football all wrapped up, this is the time of year players declare for the draft and teams really can start stacking their big boards.

Players 1-30 1) Trevor Lawrence, QB – Clemson 2)

Texas football vs. Colorado Preview

texas football

Texas football has a chance to end this season on a positive note before the off season. The Longhorns matchup against Colorado in the Valero Alamo Bowl on Tuesday night. Let’s take a look at both of these teams. Texas offense It’s been a rollercoaster when it comes to how this offense performed. There were times the Longhorns needed to step up when the team needed it and there were times, they didn’t do that. Colorado only played a total of five games, but this game is still a toss up between who wins. This offense needs to play great. Sam Ehlinger and Bijan Robinson need to have big performances for the game. This may be Ehlinger’s last game as a Longhorn and

Texas football: Offseason starts now

texas football

Texas football will still have a bowl game to play this season. However, now that the regular season is over due to the game against Kansas getting canceled by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Longhorns off-season starts now. Changes No changes will be official until after the bowl games are finished, but it doesn’t mean they can’t be discussed. Texas needs a change and it needs one bad. In the Tom Herman era, the Longhorns have made a Big 12 Championship appearance but have never won one. This string of disappointing seasons, can’t be making Longhorn fans happy. Bringing in a coach like Urban Meyer will make Texas a better team and will draw a lot of potential recruits wanting to play for

Texas football vs. Kansas canceled

Texas football won’t be playing Kansas like initially planned. The last regular season game for the Longhorns this Saturday got canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead they received an extended break and played Iowa state the weekend after. This resulted in Texas having an extended break and not playing an actual game for just under three weeks. Practice could only do so much and the extended break ended up hurting more than helping, as it lost to Iowa State and ended any chance of qualifying for the

Texas Football: Will Tom Herman be head coach next season?

texas football

Texas football head coach Tom Herman’s coaching chair couldn’t be any hotter than it is right now. After the Longhorns loss to Iowa State, people are questioning whether he should still be the head coach after this season. Fresh start If Texas fires Herman, it has a chance to bring in someone new and get a fresh start. Herman did help Texas reach the Big 12 Championship in 2018 against Oklahoma, but the Longhorns lost that game and haven’t been back since. Herman also hasn’t met expectations since he has come over to coach them. Moving on from Herman would be a fresh start for everyone. There are pros and cons to this decision. Let’s start with the cons. Cons When you hire a

Texas football lost against Iowa State last week. This confirmed the best it can do this season is a bowl game. The Longhorns just have to focus on these last two games now and get the best outcome possible. This Saturday, they matchup against Kansas State. Texas offense This high-powered offense hasn’t looked the same as it once did at the beginning of the season.

This could have been from lingering effects from taking hits this whole season or putting the weight of the team on his shoulders. He’s the last person to blame for the Longhorns failures. He was the starting

Texas football blew its only chance to reach the Big 12 Championship game after it lost against Iowa State 23-20 on Friday. Let’s see what happened in this game.
