Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa with Hookem.com is back again in this bi-weekly podcast.
In this episode of the Longhorn Round-Up the guys look back at how Texas has played through ten games.
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 take a comprehensive look at the 2012 Texas Longhorns team through ten games. They share their opinions on the performance of all position groups, and discuss the magnitude of the last two games on the schedule and how the team's performance in those games will make or break the season.
Also, lifetime Longhorn Aaron Humphrey joins the show to talk about this season's team, his playing days at Texas, football in general and his memories of Darrell K. Royal.
And as always, there are five topics which are debated upon in “The Blitz”.
