    Pre-Season Rundown

    Pre-Season Rundown

    Texas comes into the 2013 campaign ranked #1. Being ranked #1 is a privilege but it does have a downside. It means your the top dog. It means everybody is out to prove that you aren't as good as critics say. Jealousy & envy play a major role in an opposing team's motivation to get where you're at. Coaches drill their teams to near-death during practice just to get them ready to play. So, why wouldn't they give their all to take you out. Add in the factor that you won the National Championship last year. Also, remember that certain people feel you didn't deserve to win the National Championship the way you did. But then you remember the steps it took to get to the promised land. You recall all the naysayers who predicted you would lose each week to team's that didn't prove they were ready for the Longhorns. The Texas Longhorns are ready to make that giant leap from a great school to a dynasty. In order to achieve that goal, they have to go through bigger obstacles. The Texas faithful thought that the Big 12 would just lay down this year, hell no. They are coming. That goes for the rest of the nation.

    With a dreaded schedule, the Longhorns open up the season at Tennessee where every coach in the nation will be watching to see if the Longhorns will fail. To make matters worse in Week 2 they welcome in G-unit's South Carolina Gamecocks. This game will be the telling factor on how good this Longhorn team really is. However, they have more work to do. The next two opponents coming to DKR-Memorial Stadium to tussle are the Catholics & Convicts, that's right, Notre Dame(#5) and Miami(#8). After that we go on the road to start our Big 12 journey at our 3rd user opponent in 5 games, runthepound. If we are able to make it unscathed to that point, it might not make a difference, we will be already limping and bruised from the previous battles. Then we go on back home, where everything is bigger. Bigger, I mean, the Red River Rivalry as we welcome our hated rival, #11 Oklahoma. We then take on Colorado & Texas Tech. Next up, 2 road games, one against the #13 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys and the other in Waco, against Baylor. We finish off our home schedule with a meeting against the Jayhawks in Week 11. No rest is given until after this game. We finally get a bye in Week 12 before traveling to Kyle Field to take on TAMU in the Lone Star Showdown. This will not be a cakewalk. These guys are pissed, because of the ass-schalacking we put on them last year in DKR. They are out to prove they are the better team out of Texas.


    Luckily, we have a decent team with an experienced Quarterback. Garrett Gilbert comes back to the Longhorns with an already established resume. 4,886 yards and 42 touchdowns with a National Championship under his belt. He'll need to throw more than ever because we lost two great running backs in Chris Whaley & Jeremy Hills. We do feature Mike Sampson, a RS JR who is ready to break out of the gates this year. He won't be the only guy pounding the rock. Our big back named Quinton Coleman will take over Whaley's duties as the bruiser, with his 6'0 236 pound frame, watch out. While we don't have Desean Hales & DJ Monroe we do pack a nice punch named Matt Davis, 6'2 Junior with 99 speed. Ron Myers will compliment him on the other side. Introducing, a new piece to the Longhorn puzzle, Marco Cruz, a True Freshman 5'11 191 pound stick of dynamite, who will take on the role of Davis' from last year. Replacing Deion Grant, star TE, will be Michael Williams who didn't play much last year but knows enough of the offense to help Gilbert.


    Defense wins championships. We saw that prove to be true last year. This team's defensive stats ranked in the Top 10 for almost every category. We did suffer some losses but remain very strong. Seniors Kyle Krieger & All-American Alex Okafor anchor the defensive ends this year. Okafor comes in off a big time season by notching 16 sacks. The tackles might be the weakest point on the defense. Don't be fooled though, both starters are 94 & 90 overall. A.J. Williams(RS JR) will team up with Brandon Holley(RS FR) to complete the D-line. That is up in the air whether Holley will start as Texas is on the bubble with switching to the 3-4 scheme. Linebacking is what kept this team in the hunt last year. It doesn't change this year. Tariq Allen(97), Jared Scott(97), Nick Jacobs(94) and Richard Lucas(92) bring a new swagger to the state of Texas. Maybe this is the new Linebacker U! Tough secondary is featured as well with Marcus Davis & Justin Jones ready to blanket receivers. Eric Hollis returns to the SS position after going on a hot streak his last few weeks. He finished the season with 5 Interceptions, 1 DTD, and 3 Forced Fumbles. He welcomes in Michael Lewis at the Free Safety spot, a 6'2 217 ball-hawking RS Sophomore.

    Week 1


    When It Rains It Pours
    FR WR #4 Marco Cruz​

    The Longhorns start the year out by traveling to Knoxville, Tennessee to play the Volunteers. Texas currently ranked #1 will switch its defense to the 3-4 base. The coach was very nervous before the kick-off. Rainy conditions could equal disaster if we don't come with our game face.

    Marco Cruz would make his presence known, quickly. The true freshman racked in 68 yards on 3 receptions in the 1st Quarter. Cruz would go on to add his first touchdown of his young career. Michael Williams would get two touchdown catches in the 1st half to show he is ready to replace Deion Grant. UT would go up 21-0 after Nick Jacobs would pop the ball loose on a kick off. We would turn it into points, cruising to a 21-0 first half lead.

    Tennessee decides to show life in the second half, suddenly, the UT defense isn't as smothering as it was. Texas answers right back shutting Rocky Top up. It took Texas 3 plays for 63 yards to answer critics about how explosive the offense is, ending with a 29 yard strike to Ron Myers.

    Texas finishes it out with the back-ups on both sides of the ball. I wasn't overly impressed with the defense today but the offense played lights out. Next week should be a great one as we host G-Unit's USC Gamecocks.

    Week 2


    Two well disciplined teams stepped on the field today. Only one would emerge victorious. Texas would shine, early and often. Hats off to G-Unit, as we got some early luck which seemed to motivate both the crowd & players. Matt Davis was ferocious on the kick return game. 1st kick off, he returned it 61 yards to put the Longhorns in great field position. After that, the offense took off scoring first letting the defense play lights out. I was happy with almost every aspect of our game. Gilbert did make one mistake but I saw it
    before I did it. Threw an out route on 3rd down which was picked and took back for six. I used this game beforehand as a measuring stick for the season. I think we should do pretty good this year. Our run game will need to improve but that needs time so it will come. We welcome Notre Dame next week so we are off to practice hard & prepare.

    Weeks 3 & 4

    Texas continues the winning streak to get ready to do battle with the up and coming Mizzou Tigers. We beat Notre Dame & Miami. I didn't do a write-up for ND because over the weekend the servers were down. I didn't do a write-up for the game against Tha U.

    Texas 7 10 7 10
    OU 0 3 7 7

    Texas gets it done in the Red River Rivalry. It wasn't a pretty game but it was a much needed victory. We were up pretty big, 24-10 in the 3rd but OU made a big splash. At one point, it was 24-17. We ended up getting two big plays to take this game. Both plays were made on defense this game by DB's J. Jones & M. Davis. They returned pick sixes for the Longhorn defense. Garret Gilbert had a nice outing going 17-28 for 224 yards and a pair of touchdowns while throwing no interceptions. The Longhorns have a long way to go but aren't out of any race just yet.
