    He became a better quarterback when there are lots more UT fans out there buying Athlon mags then there are Cyclone fans.

    I suppose that they’re also considering the fact that Ehlinger has more talent surrounding him, As much as I like our guys, they have three OL starters returning (including a projected first rounder), more running back and WR production returning than we do—and three or four former five star talents either enrolling, transferring or coming off of injury.

    We’ll just have to kick Longhorn *** anyway.

    They can come in for workouts in June, but the NCAA's preseason practice rule is still 29 days before the first game. So the first official day of actual practice this year can't be until Aug. 7.

    Thank you. I forgot about the whole “season starting later than usual” thing.

    I’m hoping they have enough practice at it to have all the kinks with COVID-19 protocols worked out by then.

    That's when it always is. They don't have practices until August. Summer S&C is nice but it's not practice. Coach Rasheed can't be there

    This year just happens to be the latest that Week 1 can be, since the start of the season is tied to Labor Day, and Labor Day is the latest it can be (9/7).

    There's a 4th team All-Conference now? I was 13th team All-Conference my senior year.

    I don’t want everyone to freak out, but I don’t know that Bankston is an every down DT right now.

    I think he will be good, but his run stopping worries me a tick.

    I don't get it?
    Agree. He's going to take a while to get into true form IMO. Unless he picks everything up immediately and is in great shape already, and is just an amazing talent.... I don't see how he starts in game one.

    If I had to guess, I'd go with Isaiah Lee starting the first game at NG.... unless we move Tucker Robertson or Uwazurike in there and they beat out Lee.

    uh, then why were our defensive line, linebackers, and defensive back units ranked #1 in the Big 12 by Athlon?
