The place to talk about the Texas Longhorns
The place for off topic discussion on Hookem
You have no favorite boards.
Speaking of knocking QB's out, here's a dandy. Coup de grace at 3:08 mark.

John Harris-Good to hear he is stepping up.
Mike Davis-Separation was lacking last year.
"Jackson Jeffcoat and Alex Okafor have been tremendous leaders. While Emmanuel Acho, Keenan Robinson and Blake Gideon are said to be the leaders on defense, one source told me Jeffcoat and Okafor aren't far behind. “It's not so much in what they say, but what they do,” one source told me. “They're really working hard to show the young guys what it takes to make it at Texas.”
Good to hear. It will take that to set the table for the future and for this season.
"All four of the players in Dallas talked about how much leadership was missing from last year's team. Emmanuel Acho said he's tried to make the young players on the team understand what it will take to get things back on track. “We try to let them know what it takes to be that good. It's not because of high school stars,” he said. “It's what you do in the film room, the work you put in on work days and the effort you put in on the days off.”
Recognition is the first step, gotta transform into action, moving forward and growing.
'Keenan Robinson-The past couple of years people have talked about it, but the running game is going to be key and I think the O-Line will be able to allow our backs to be successful.”
Key to a fine season. Will turn the program around in being more balanced. Rather than the bulk of the production falling on the shoulders of the QB.

“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
While no one has mentioned it yet, I love the Bennie Wylie stuff and about finding out who's tough. Folks I don't think we'll ever feel inferior to the okies again when it comes to strength, quickness and 4th quarter toughness.
This MAY be the best news of all.
