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 break down Texas' 21-17 win over the Kansas Jayhawks.
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 review Texas’ ugly 17-14 victory over the Kansas Jayhawks, and share their opinions about what they think is causing the struggles with the Texas football team. The guys continue to discuss what they think is the root of the problem with the Texas defense. They also go in depth about the Texas offense and discuss what they think is the most efficient way for the Longhorns to be most successful on offense.
As always, there are ten hard-hitting questions in “The Blitz”, all of which focus the Longhorns match-up against Kansas.
Plus, in this episode's edition of “Hearing from the Horns”, you will get to hear head coach Mack Brown, defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin, and senior safety Kenny Vaccaro talk about their team after the victory on Saturday.
