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 ahead to Oklahoma State.
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 Tuesday episode, the guys examine the Texas Longhorns after their first three games of the season and they begin to preview the Horns toughest road test to date, their meeting with the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stilwater on Saturday.
The guys grade the Longhorns' performance at every position up until this point in the season. There are plenty of news and notes throughout the show and they also talk about the teams that can contend for a Big 12 Championship.
Like every show there are ten quick-hitting Longhorn questions in “The Blitz”, and in this preview episode, all ten questions are about the Longhorns and the Big 12 Conference.
Plus, in this episode's edition of “Hearing from the Horns”, you will get to hear great insight from Mack Brown, defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin and quarterback David Ash regarding the aspects of the team after three games played.
