SWEAT DOMINATES JAN 31 This past season, T’Vondre Sweat was undoubtedly the best defensive player for the Texas Longhorns. He easily won the Outland Trophy, unanimous first-team All-America honors, and much more.

Now that he’s on a higher plane, Sweat has started preparing for the NFL Draft, starting with the Reese’s Senior Bowl. From the looks of things, Sweat is in control, destroying former Arkansas center Beaux Limmer in practice drills.

On the next rep, he can be seen dominating Texas A&M guard, Layden Robinson.

Currently, Sweat is rated as a fringe first-round prospect by some experts and as high as 50 prospects by others; but, if he can maintain this level of play leading up to draft day, he should continue to climb the boards.

JAN 17: “WE CAME FROM THE BOTTOM AND ARE HERE NOW” Major Applewhite, an assistant coach and former Texas Longhorns quarterback, is expected to take over as the South Alabama Jaguars’ new head coach, according to a report from ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

Applewhite will be promoted from his present roles as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach to take over as the Jaguars’ head coach in place of Kane Wommack, who left to take a defensive coordinator post at Alabama under Kalen DeBoer.

After being signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent after the 2002 NFL Draft, 45-year-old Texas-Ex Applewhite swiftly made the decision to forgo his playing career in favour of finishing his education and becoming a coach.

He worked under then-coach Mack Brown as a graduate assistant at Texas for two years in 2003 and 2004. He then attended Syracuse, Rice, and Alabama for a year before returning to Austin for the following five years. Prior to being elevated to co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks, he served as the running backs coach.

Following that, Applewhite took a year off from coaching and spent three seasons at Houston before coming back to Alabama for two seasons as an analyst. In 2021, he would then accept a position as South Alabama’s offensive coordinator.

Thompson Commits to OU on January 11 Casey Thompson, a former quarterback for the Texas Longhorns, committed to the Oklahoma Sooners on Thursday to begin his sixth season of collegiate football.

Thompson will be playing for his fourth team since 2021, when he left Texas to eventually move to Nebraska and then Florida Atlantic.

With 5,338 yards and 52 touchdowns through the air in his career, Thompson is expected to back up Jackson Arnold in Norman.

He is a 2018 class member who signed with Texas. He is originally from New Castle, Oklahoma.

January 10th, 2023 SABAN In an attempt to leave a lasting impression in their inaugural season in the SEC, the Texas Longhorns are scheduled to join the league in 2024.

And now, according to a report from ESPN’s Chris Low, one significant barrier may be removed, or at the very least less of a threat, as famed Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban is expected to retire.

It has been believed that Saban has already communicated his retirement plans to his team.

After winning two Paul Bear Bryant Awards, seven national championships, eleven SEC crowns, twelve SEC West titles, and numerous other honours over his flawless career, Nick Saban, maybe the greatest college football coach in history, is ending his profession.

The Longhorns had faced Saban just once in the previous two years, but this past September’s decisive 34-24 victory in Tuscaloosa helped strengthen the Longhorns’ postseason prospects.

Dan Lanning of Oregon, Kalen DeBoer of Washington, Dabo Swinney of Clemson, James Franklin of Penn State, Mike Norvell of Florida State, and Marcus Freeman of Notre Dame have all been mentioned as possible successors, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

JAN 8: KROB TO DRAFT All-purpose back Keilan Robinson is the most recent Texas Longhorn to declare for the 2024 NFL Draft, making him another important player.

Robinson remarked after his speech, “Thank you to everyone who has helped me get to where I am today.” “I plan to declare for the NFL Draft in 2024.”

Before the 2021 season, Robinson moved from Alabama to Texas, following Steve Sarkisian to the Longhorns.

Robinson amassed 542 yards of rushing yardage on 82 rushes and 332 receiving yards on 35 catches during his tenure with Texas. He also scored 11 touchdowns from scrimmage. Over the last two seasons, he was also among the nation’s most explosive return specialists, rushing back kicks and punts for touchdowns.
