The Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa with Hookem.com is back, tackling some of the hottest topics relating to Longhorn sports and recruiting in this weekly podcast.
The guys discuss David Ash being named the starter and much more on this week's Longhorn Round-Up.
The team of Hookem.com's Jeff Howe, Austin radio veteran Matt Butler and lifetime Longhorn, six-year NFL veteran and current sideline reporter for Texas Longhorns football Rod Babers take Longhorn fans through more than an hour of nothing but Longhorn news and notes.
This week on the show, the guys recap all of the inside reports and information they gathered throughout fall camp. They also break down the depth chart and tell you what surprised them the most when they saw it for the first time.
Like every week there are ten quick-hitting Longhorn questions in “The Blitz”.
Plus, a new feature “Hearing from the Horns” is introduced in this week's first episode of Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa.
