Kirk Bohls’ 9 things and 1 crazy prediction

American-Statesman columnist Kirk Bohls is right. If the Longhorns and Aggies renewed their rivalry on the football field, at least one of the teams would have something to feel good about.

Longhorns closer to naming starting QB for San Jose State

Shane Buechele missed practice again on Wednesday as freshman Sam Ehlinger worked with the first team. It would be asking a lot for Buechele to miss practice and start Saturday, but offensive coordinator Tim Beck hasn’t ruled that out yet. On the defensive side, coordinator Todd Orlando liked what he saw in Wednesday’s practice.
