Intercollegiate sports teams of the University of Texas
Rod Babers, Matt Butler and Jeff Howe are back to discuss whether or not Steve Sarkisian needs to rethink his desired identity for the Texas Longhorns heading into 2022. The team was good enough to post gaudy offensive numbers and get first-half leads on most of their opponents, but the inability to finish games with wins might require a new line of thinking. 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 Texas Longhorns can't seem to find their rhythm on the court, at least as it comes to stringing conference wins together. After taking care of business and looking good while doing it, Texas struggled mightily against the Iowa State Cyclones and are still without a Q1 win for the season. The ladies struggled with turnovers and the Kansas Jayhawks' high-powered offense took advantage of it in an overtime win. So Vic Schaefer switched up the lineup and got a big upswing in performance from both his starters and the bench. On the football field, the spring enrollees are on campus and in the dorms, preparing for offseason conditioning ahead of spring practice. From the new transfer players to the early high school graduates, hope are high that some of these players can have an instant impact. But who will those impact players be?

Texas Longhorns had an up-and-down week on the hardwood, both the men and the women - splitting the week 1-1. On the men's side, Texas started the week with a big win over the Kansas State Wildcats, but went to Stillwater and fell flat, falling 64-51 in an abysmal shooting performance. Just two players hit double-figures for the Longhorns, Timmy Allen and Andrew Jones, turning in an 8-27 performance from the floor. The ladies did not fare much better in their conference matchup, falling 74-61 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, thanks in large part to a 23-point performance from Vivian Gray. Tech went to the line early and often, capitalizing on nearly every opportunity from the charity stripe. Their early-season matchup with the Baylor Bears had to be rescheduled, so they took on UT-Rio Grande Valley and made the most of the matchup. Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

Texas Longhorns basketball officially started conference play over the weekend, with the men taking on the West Virginia Mountaineers and the women taking on the Oklahoma State Cowgirls. The men jumped all over the Mountaineers, building a double-digit lead quickly which they never surrendered. Marcus Carr and Courtney Ramey did the bulk of the damage for Texas, with Andrew Jones chipping in for the offensive effort. At least for one game, Texas found a way to be efficient on offense, capitalizing on the extra possessions and pace Chris Beard prefers. On the women's side, Texas extended its winning streak to seven with a 11-point win over Oklahoma State thanks to patented Vic Schaefer defense, holding OSU to just 30.8 percent shooting on the night. We also dive in on new wide receivers coach Brennan Marion, as well as commitments for both the football and basketball teams. Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

Aaron lost his mom.Nuggets of Harris wisdom are spread throughout this episode.Harris honored his friend, the late, great Texas running back, Cedric Benson.His stories from those great years of Texas football between 2001-2005, I haven't heard before. He didn't get credit for the sack of Troy Smith at Ohio State which resulted in a safety. It was a "team sack". The Bo Davis cell phone video on the team bus this past season was discussed at length. Harris said that would've never happened during his era at Texas. The player driven leadership would not have allowed it and if someone would've, that individual would've been dealt with by the team an no longer part of the "family" and team.Basically, an episode loaded with sage advice, Harris was vulnerable, and candid about life and football.A special thanks to:Jim Saxton, State Farm AgentKevin C Hutchison Realty AustinFarmhouse DeliveryOur Community NowCosmic Coffee + Beer GardenSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/StoriesManCave)

The Texas Longhorns wasted no time in filling the hole left by Stan Drayton's move to the Temple Owls, filling his post as running backs coach with Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets star and coach Tashard Choice. Choice, known as an up-and-comer in the coaching industry, can hopefully fill the shoes left by Drayton both as a developer and recruiter. However, Texas has another hole to fill in its coaching staff as Steve Sarkisian is reportedly parting ways with wide receivers coach Andre Coleman, who's been on the Texas staff since 2019 when he joined as an analyst. Texas also lost depth in the quarterback room, as quarterback Casey Thompson decided to take his talents elsewhere following the addition of Quinn Ewers to the roster. We discuss his legacy as a Texas quarterback and what his impact was as Texas tries to transition to a new era of Longhorn football. Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

Saturday's active shooter scare at Barton Creek Mall turns out to have been the result of a smash-and-grab robbery with no shots fired. Texas ranks #2 among U.S. states for being moved to - and also for being moved away from. Austin home prices are forcing residents to move out of town, and thus causing price increases in our outskirts. The Westlake Chaparrals football squad wins their third straight State title, while LBJ Austin and Liberty Hill don't quite get it done. Texas Longhorns football cuts receivers coach Andre Coleman.

Paul & Kevin talk about the Texas Longhorn's furious finish for NSD1 and who they may still yet ink, the winners and losers on the national scene, Urban Meyer getting his sweet comeuppance in Jacksonville, the possible replacements for Stan Drayton, Casey Thompson's reward program at the El Portal Motel, and why Eddie Murphy was the baddest MFer to ever do it. Finally, a few parting thoughts on why sports are such a valuable tool for breaking down barriers and building goal alignment and why it's important to defend them against those peddling false narratives.

After a wild recruiting weekend, the Texas Longhorns still had some surprises up their sleeves heading into National Signing Day. The Texas staff managed to flip three priority targets from the Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State Buckeyes and the Oklahoma Sooners, en routed to landing the No. 5 class in the country and the top class in the conference. Outside of the flips, Texas also managed to land yet another top-tier offensive lineman as the day drew to a close. We take a look at who is still left on the board and who we think will make an immediate impact for the Longhorns heading into 2022. We also dive in on the basketball team's big win over Arkansas Pine Bluff and celebrate Texas players who earned recognition for successful years in volleyball and soccer.

As always even though we are confident in the food we turned in, the nerves kick in as we go to the results stage. We manage to pull off a 1st place chicken in the first category. Then we get to ribs and get another 1st place call. The pork butt was not a winner today but we managed a 4th place call. We pretty much tied up with another cooking team going into brisket and drum roll.......1st place. Good enough for a Grand Champion award. Hiram gets around to cooking a steak. He used Hector's An(g)us rub on the ribeyes that he bought. He gives us a play by play as he cooks one steak on a gas grill in a cast iron and on steak in a pizza oven in a cast iron steak.

The Texas Longhorns had four days of massive recruiting news that could potentially impact both the short and long-term potential of the program. The Longhorns received commitments from three key offensive linemen, including the No. 15 player in the country, Kelvin Banks, the No. 23 player in the state, Neto Umeozulu, and priority tackle Cameron Williams, adding a ton of size and potential to the offensive line. Texas also received word that after flirting with both the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the TCU Horned Frogs, elite quarterback transfer Quinn Ewers planned on transferring to the Longhorns and joining in the spring. The former No. 1 player in the class of 2022 reclassified and spent a year at Ohio State, seemingly to capitalize on NIL deals that he was unable to in his home state. So what does the quarterback bring to the table and how does his game adapt to Steve Sarkisian's offense. Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

Texas Longhorn athletes were presented with not one, but two opportunities to capitalize on their Name, Image and Likeness thanks to the Clark Field Collective and Horns with Heart. These two organizations are designed to connect Texas athletes with opportunities to use their newly-found NIL rights and be compensated for their time and partnership. This is a game-changer for Texas athletics and should allow student-athletes to receive greater value as they market themselves. It was also a big week on campus, with the volleyball team running through the first round of the NCAA Tournament, while both the men's and women's basketball teams both walked away with wins.

In this week's interview edition of The Flagship Podcast, with so much going on involving Texas Longhorns' recruiting heading into the Dec. 15 signing period, we talk to our own Mike Roach for an update on where things stand coming out of a busy weekend, including the latest on former Texas quarterback commitment Quinn Ewers, who is in the transfer portal after signing with Ohio State. We talk about where Texas stands with Ewers and why Texas Tech could end up being a significant player in Ewers' re-recruitment and what role former Red Raiders' quarterback Patrick Mahomes might have in that situation. We also discuss how the fallout from Lincoln Riley leaving as coach at Oklahoma to take over at USC has possibly created some recruiting opportunity for the Longhorns and what the recruiting landscape might look like if Oklahoma decides to go with Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables to replace Riley. The Flagship weighs in on some of the biggest positions of need for the Longhorns, including linebacker and how Texas may be addressing that position. And, of course, when you talk about positions of need for Texas, you talk about the offensive line and how things could shape up for the Longhorns over the next 10 days with some key in-home visits coming up. Roach provides names of players to focus on when it comes to UT's offensive line recruiting and the stakes involved in landing those names. Sticking with positions of need, Roach gives the latest on where things stand with Texas and its receiver recruiting following a record-breaking season for Longhorns' freshman Xavier Worthy and what could be an event that might trigger some movement in UT's receiver recruiting.

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.

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? Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

And then, there was one. The Mountaineer football team plays its last home game Saturday when the Texas Longhorns visit Milan Puskar Stadium. WVU may have played ten games, but it's still difficult to figure out how the Mountaineers will perform. Despite a 4-6 record, West Virginia could still earn a bowl invitation or suffer its second losing season in the last three years. Like West Virginia, Texas has been unpredictable. The Longhorns won their first four games and have lost their last six. Texas (4-6) arrives in Morgantown both mentally and physically depleted. Star running back Bijan Robinson is one of several Longhorns who will miss the game with injuries. In this episode, the “Guys” analyze the matchup and offer their thoughts on the keys to a WVU victory. Listener questions and comments complete the show. They'll return on Monday to recap the football game and the WVU basketball team's performance at the Charleston Classic.
