American football coach and former player
In Texas' off-week after losing double-digit leads in back-to-back losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, The Flagship Podcast checks in with Michael Griffin, a member of UT's 2005 national championship team and former Pro Bowl safety with the Tennessee Titans, to get his thoughts on the Longhorns (4-3, 2-2 Big 12). Griffin, who is currently an analyst on the Longhorn Network, doesn't hold back while discussing some of his concerns, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Griffin talks about what he thinks the Texas defense is lacking and how he'd go about addressing things among the players in the locker room. Does Texas need to make some changes at the safety position? Griffin shares his thoughts about how his position is now being represented by the Longhorns. Griffin talks about the importance of being a player-led team and how players should be holding each other accountable. How is Steve Sarkisian handling things? Griffin discusses which situations he thinks Sarkisian needs more time to fix and which ones need to be a quick fix. Griffin talks about the things he likes about this team and some things he believes the Longhorns can build on as they prepare to play at No. 20 Baylor (6-1, 3-1) on Oct. 30.

This week on the Daly Dose, we wish a happy birthday to one of the all time greats in sports, and reflect on who he might resemble in this modern day era. Then, we are flashing back to a Daly Dose from 2015! The Houston Texans were on HBO's Hard Knocks. The New England Patriots were signing a wide receiver well past his prime, and USC head coach Steve Sarkisian was getting himself in trouble. We were also previewing the 2015 College Football season by looking at a few under the radar teams and a few QB battles that were taking place prior to the season!We switched over to the NFL where we were seeing a number of preseason injuries, and Washington was trying to get their quarterback killed.Plus, we hand out a few very important tips for fantasy football players!Finally, we countdown the Top 5 most devastating preseason NFL injuries of all time!
Rod Babers, Matt Butler and Jeff Howe are back to discuss Texas' 32-24 loss to Oklahoma State and take a big-picture view of where the Longhorns stand during their bye week, which comes seven games into Steve Sarkisian's first season on the job. What has Sarkisian's offense done well and where did things go wrong in the team's most recent setback? How dire is the situation on defense following yet another unsavory performance? Are one-possession games and the program's recent results in them a systemic issue? It's not a problem Sarkisian created, but it's one he has to fix and it might be the most significant hurdle he has to clear to keep the 2021 season from coming off of the rails.

SportsDay Insiders Kevin Sherrington, David Moore and Evan Grant discuss the wisdom in letting Dak Prescott rest his injured calf for a couple weeks instead of rushing him back. Kevin gives two reasons why Jason Kidd is now the Mavs' coach, and how that affects the team's dynamics going forward. On the college coaching roundtable, the guys talk about the development at Washington State, where the head coach and four assistants were fired for refusing the COVID vaccine; Evan tells us why LSU is a better job than Texas A&M; and David skewers Evan for saying Steve Sarkisian is already done at Texas.
The Texas Longhorns head into the bye week coming off of yet another collapse - this time at the hands of the Oklahoma State Cowboys. However, instead of the defense collapsing under the offensive pressure, the Oklahoma State defense shut down the Texas offense - allowing the defense to slowly bleed until one big play sealed the deal. What happened to the Longhorns' offense on Saturday and what can Steve Sarkisian do about it with two weeks off? How does the defense limit gash plays and keep opponents from ending up in short-yardage situations? Quarterback Casey Thompson had his worst outing of his five starts as he nurses an injury to his throwing hand. So Texas has to take advantage of the week off to get healthy and get ready for a tough Baylor Bears squad. Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

The Longhorns have made their way to the first and only bye week of the season and it couldn't have come at a better time with Texas entering the bye coming off back-to-back losses to Top 25 ranked teams. The Flagship Podcast gets the week started off with a loaded show as Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes discuss what Steve Sarkisian had to say about his team as they make their way through the bye week on the schedule. The Flagship weighs in on some of the key areas of focus for Texas this week, including getting the Longhorns back on track from a mental standpoint after dropping third quarter leads in back-to-back games, which ended in losses. Sarkisian addressed the team's mental focus and how the coaching staff intends to correct the psyche of the team to get them ready for the final five games of the regular season starting next Saturday at Baylor. The Flagship also weighs in on some of the personnel questions Texas is facing after seven games of the season and if a schematic change, particularly on defense, could be the solution to help the Longhorns down the stretch of Big 12 play. After a short break, The Flagship returns with our 'Love it or leave it' segment, with this week's topics focused on if the psyche of the team is correctable by Sarkisian and his staff, adjustments that need to be made during the bye week and the biggest surprises so far in Big 12 Conference play at the mid-point of the 2021 season.

The Longhorns had the chance to bounce back from last weekend's second-half collapse to Oklahoma when Texas hosted No. 12 ranked Oklahoma State Saturday. The Longhorns led for the majority of Saturday's game against the Cowboys, only to once again collapse in the second half, leading to a 32-24 loss to Oklahoma State. On this week's game reaction edition of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes break down the Longhorns' second conference loss of the season, this time to the Cowboys, which was a bit reminiscent of last weekend's late game loss to Oklahoma. The Flagship weighs in on the offensive issues that plagued the team in the second half, which once again was a product of poor offensive line play, penalties and the offense taking their foot off the gas as the game wore on, especially after going up by double digits on the Cowboys early in the third quarter. Chip and Taylor also discuss what Steve Sarkisian had to say about the Longhorns' psyche when games start going in their opponents favor and how the bye week will be a chance for the coaches to try to correct the mental fragility of this Texas team.

The Longhorns will need to have a short memory to put last weekend's heart-breaking loss to Oklahoma in the past and get ready for another Top 25 battle this Saturday when No. 12 ranked Oklahoma State heads to Austin for an 11 a.m. kickoff against No. 25 ranked Texas. But the Longhorns will be without two key starters on both sides of the ball when they host the Cowboys this weekend. The Flagship Podcast gets the Texas-Oklahoma State game week started off with a loaded show as Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes discuss all head coach Steve Sarkisian had to say Monday after he watched the film of the Longhorns' loss to the Sooners in the Red River Shootout. The Flagship weighs in on Sarkisian's concerns coming out of the Oklahoma game, including the lack of pass-rush shown in the second half against Oklahoma and the Longhorns' inability to get pressure on true freshman QB Caleb Williams, and also how Texas will replace two key players on offense and defense after he announced wide receiver Jordan Whittington (clavicle) and edge-rusher Jacoby Jones (foot) will undergo surgery after both went down with injuries against the Sooners. The co-hosts discuss the guys who are next in line to replace the injured Longhorns, and why sophomore edge rusher Alfred Collins has a chance to solidify a starting role on the defense after back-to-back games where he made big plays coming off of the bench. After a quick break, The Flagship returns with our Love it or Leave it segment, with this weeks topics focused on how alarming the defense's last three games have been, the level of concern for the Texas offense in replacing Whittington and what to make of Oklahoma State's 5-1 record against Texas in the last six games in Austin.

Red River Rivalry, the day after episode..How are you feeling about the rest of the season Longhorn Nation?Casey Thomspon was SOLID at quarterback. Bijon Robinson was Bijon but OU's defense began to contain him in the final 1.5 quarters. I'd say, there should be optimism but with patience.This team fought and started well early vs Oklahoma. Literally attacked and were aggressive.The problem is producing two aggressive and relentless halves.Both the offensive and defensive line are works in progress currently. And, tackling is an issue. Too many missed tackles.Oklahoma found their quarterback after Texas forced Spencer Rattler to the bench for the 2nd straight season.Caleb Williams will more than likely become OU's starter. I wouldn't surprised if Rattler enters the transfer portal in the off season. Texas head coach, Steve Sarkisian said this team's metal will be tested as the team's preseason goals of winning a Big 12 title remain on the table. Texas hosts 11th ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday at 11 AM.Meanwhile, in College Station the Aggie flipped the direction of their season by upsetting #1 Alabama on Jimbo Fisher's birthday.Special thanks to both: saxtoninsurance.com & Cosmic Coffee + Beer GardenSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/StoriesManCave)

The Texas Longhorns head into the Cotton Bowl to take on the Oklahoma Sooners with a chance to show whether or not they've actually made progress under new head coach Steve Sarkisian. Texas is fresh off of one of the wins that they needed in order to change the narrative and a win in the Red River Showdown would go a long way in determining the future for the Longhorns. Can Casey Thompson, Bijan Robinson and the Longhorns offense do enough to keep a very solid Oklahoma defense from dominating the game as they have in years past? Defensively, Texas has had an up-and-down go of things, but the Sooners have had some offensive struggles thus far in 2021 - especially on the ground. Can the Longhorns force the Sooners into an uncomfortable situation offensively and take advantage of an off-balance Spencer Rattler, who has dealt with a bit of regression this year, precipitated by regression on the offensive line.

The Texas Longhorns went into Fort Worth and did something they haven't done since the 2013 season - came away with a win over the TCU Horned Frogs. It wasn't always pretty, but an ugly win is better than a loss any day of the week. Texas rode the talents of running back Bijan Robinson, who set a career high for both carries and yardage - propelling the offense that was otherwise stagnant. Quarterback Casey Thompson had troubles connecting with his receivers, with Jordan Whittington, Xavier Worthy and Joshua Moore all recording drops in the win. Texas managed to do just enough on the offensive side of the ball to get it done on Saturday. Defensively, the Longhorns did just enough, in spite of an incredible performance from TCU running back Zach Evans who was seemingly limited by fatigue in the matchup. Texas bottled up the Horned Frogs' pass game, with quarterback Max Duggan turning in a career-low performance against the Longhorns - a team he set school records against in the past. But with all of that said, a win is a win and Texas currently remains undefeated in conference play and set up head coach Steve Sarkisian with the best starting record for a Texas head coach since the 1970s.

It's Red River Shootout week on The Flagship Podcast! The Longhorns and Sooners are set for the annual battle in the Cotton Bowl as No. 21 ranked Texas and No. 6 ranked Oklahoma prepare for the 117th meeting between the two rivalry programs. On the early week edition of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes take an early look ahead to Saturday's Texas-OU game. The Flagship recaps all first-year head coach Steve Sarkisian had to say during his Monday press conference with the Longhorns coming off of a much-needed road win at TCU last weekend. The co-hosts deliver the latest injury update on the Longhorns, including some bad news for the offense after Sarkisian announced senior offensive lineman Denzel Okafor will soon undergo season-ending surgery after he went down in last Saturday's game against the Horned Frogs. The Flagship discuss what Okafor's absence will mean for the Texas offensive line, which will need to play its best game of the year against a solid Sooners' defense that currently ranks No. 7 in the country against the run. Chip and Taylor also discuss the production of sophomore running back Bijan Robinson coming off of his outstanding performance against the Horned Frogs that saw him rush for 216 yards and two touchdowns in the 32-27 win over TCU, and how crucial it is for the Longhorns' receivers to step up their game and help take some of the workload off of Robinson this weekend when they take on the Sooners. After a quick break, The Flagship returns with our 'Love it or leave it' segment, with this week's topics touching on the level of concern for Texas after showing some struggles on both sides of the ball against TCU, how important it is for Texas to not expect Robinson to continue to carry the load for the Longhorns' offense and what to make of the Sooners close games and early offensive struggles this season.

The Texas Longhorns come out of non-conference play 2-1 and get ready to compete in the Big 12 for the first time under new head coach Steve Sarkisian. Up first is a tough test, the Texas Tech Red Raiders who are coming to town looking a bit different than they have in years past. The Red Raiders are led by their defense, coming off of three solid performances to open the season. They were a few plays away from a much different story, but the defense stepped up when it needed to in order to secure the wins. However, the Red Raiders will definitely rely on some expected names - SaRodorick Thompson and Eric Ezukanma - to set the pace for their offense as they try to come into Austin and win for the first time in four years. So what do we expect from the Red Raiders and how does Texas match up? Will they be able to play their game against a tough Texas Tech defense? Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

Texas wrapped up the non-conference slate on a positive note when the Longhorns manhandled Rice, 58-0, last weekend. With the first three games in the rear-view mirror, Texas will not shift its focus to the Big 12 schedule, which could be a tough road for the Longhorns starting this weekend when Texas Tech heads to Austin for an 11 a.m. kickoff. On the early week edition of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes dive in to the first Big 12 game of the year for Steve Sarkisian and his staff against the Red Raiders. The Flagship discusses some of the key comments from Sarkisian to start the week as his team looks to continue on the winning path when they host Texas Tech this weekend. The Flagship weighs in on the first-year head coach announcing QB Casey Thompson will once again start for Texas Saturday, while the playing time for Hudson Card is up in the air and is not a guarantee. With Thompson and the offense coming off of the monster performance against the Owls, Chip and Taylor give their take on what to expect from that side of the ball down the stretch of conference action. The Flagship also delivers an early preview of the Red Raiders, particularly on offense with Texas Tech fielding a more balanced group that has the talent to gash opponents on the ground and in the passing game. The Texas defense will be tasked with a difficult challenge in facing Texas Tech QB Tyler Shough — who averaged 270.67 passing yards per game for the Red Raiders in non-conference — and why Saturday's game will be the first true test for the Texas secondary in going up against the Tech offense. After a short break, The Flagship returns with our 'Love it or Leave it' segment, with this week's topics touching on what, if anything, we learned about Texas from the Rice game, level of concern for Joshua Moore's limited production through the last two games and how close Saturday's game between Texas and Texas Tech could be based off how the two teams have played one another in the past.

The Longhorns rebounded in a big way Saturday night in Austin when Texas dominated Rice 58-0. After a humbling Week 2 loss to Arkansas, the Longhorns made a statement at all three phases of the game in the final non-conference regular-season matchup of Year 1 of the Steve Sarkisian era. On this week's episode of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes react to the Longhorns' performance against the Owls starting with the production of the Texas offense. Junior quarterback Casey Thompson logged his first career start at Texas and made his first college start one to remember as Thompson led the Texas offense on seven of eight scoring drives, all of which ended with touchdowns, before he hung it up midway through the third quarter. The Flagship also weighs in on the electric performance from the Texas running back room against the Rice defense, which has been a recent strength for the Owls under Mike Bloomgren, and rushed for a total 427 yards and six touchdowns in the ball game. Four different RBs found the end zone against Rice, led by sophomore RB Bijan Robinson with 127 yards and three touchdowns, while Roschon Johnson, Keilan Robinson and Jonathon Brooks all added a touchdown of their own. The Flagship then shifts focus to the defensive side of the ball in the shutout of Rice, which marked the first shutout win for Texas since 2017. The Longhorns enforced their will early and often against the Owls, and held the Rice offense to less than 300 total yards and no points.

The Texas Longhorns need a moment to gather themselves and get back on track after an embarrassing loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks and hopefully, they can do just that against another former SWC rival - the Rice Owls. Rice is struggling to open the season, managing just 24 points in two games as a part of their 0-2 start. They nearly caught lightning in a bottle two weeks ago after leading Arkansas late, but it seems like since the levee broke against the Hogs they have been reeling. Texas hopes to take advantage of the Owls' struggles en route to righting the ship after their trip to Fayetteville. How will Steve Sarkisian and his coaching staff solve what ails Texas? Who do we think will be the standout players on Saturday and what do we predict for the game? Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

What can Texas realistically fix before getting back on the horse and taking on Rice? And what deficiencies do Sarkisian and his staff need to work around the rest of the way?
