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 football talk.
In this Thursday episode the guys preview the Longhorns' non-conference road game against Ole Miss.
This episode previews the Texas/Mississippi game more comprehensibly than anywhere else. The guys share their opinions on how they think the Longhorns will handle the raucous SEC environment in their first road game and they give insight into what they expect to unfold at “The Grove”
Like every show there are ten quick-hitting Longhorn questions in “The Blitz”, all of which foreshadow what may be to come for the Horns in this weekend's match-up against the Rebels
Plus, in this episode's edition of “Hearing from the Horns”, you will get to hear great insight from defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin and offensive guard Trey Hopkins regarding what they expect to see from the Ole Miss Rebels.
