No Wally Pipp for the moment

Shane Buechele took 60 percent of the first team snaps in practice Tuesday. It looks like the sophomore quarterback won’t be losing his job because of injury after freshman Sam Ehlinger put up a strong effort against the USC Trojans last Saturday. Buechele is feeling good and looks to avoid the same fate as Wally Pipp, a first baseman for the New York Yankees best known for being replaced by Lou Gehrig.

Cedric Golden talks ‘primal screams’ and Connor Williams

Tom Herman may not have shed a tear after the heart-breaking loss to the Trojans on Saturday, but he had a louder way of expressing his frustration. A few folks on Twitter had a little fun with the visual. Golden talks about that frustration and looks forward to the Longhorns’ next opponent, Iowa State. He also ponders whether or not Connor Williams should enter the NFL draft after suffering an injury Saturday.

There are no moral victories … unless a recruit is impressed

When Texas showed it has the talent to hang with one of the best teams in the country Saturday, recruits took notice. Recruiting writer Mike Craven provides reaction to the double overtime loss to USC. Take a look into the Texas recruiting world at The Forty.

Speaking of moral victories …

It looks like Sam Ehlinger earned one after nearly guiding Texas to a major upset over USC last Saturday. Surely Ehlinger would have preferred to win the instant classic, but he at least earned the respect of one of college football’s best players.
