Texas sophomore Shane Buechele got the start at quarterback over freshman Sam Ehlinger on Thursday at Iowa State.
Buechele sat out the previous two games with an injury to his throwing shoulder, and Longhorns fans had mixed reactions to seeing him jog out for the first drive against the Cyclones.

Is Ehlinger hurt? I don’t know why he’s not starting.
— DeShone Kizer Söze (@MrSuperJay) September 29, 2017
What do you think Ehlinger’s chances are to get in? If he’s like he played last week, he looks like a potential monster starting next year.
