Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa with Hookem.com is back again in this bi-weekly podcast.
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 nearly an hour of nothing but Longhorn football talk.
In this Thursday episode, the guys take an overall look at the Texas football team through the first quarter of the season. They also share their opinions on the good, and bad, that they have seen on the field from the Horns through the first three games.
And since this week is a bye week, we chose to catch up with lifetime Longhorn and current Arizona Cardinal, Lyle Sendlein. Lyle shares his opinion on the 2012 Longhorns through three games, his playing days at Texas, and how life is as a member of the Arizona Cardinals.
Plus, in this episode's edition of “Hearing from the Horns”, you will get to hear what head coach, Mack Brown, thinks about his team after the first three victories of the season.
