Sound off: Where does the Texas offense go from here?

Posted October 3rd, 2017


In this week’s  Zaxby’s Sound Off, writers Danny Davis and Brian Davis examine Texas’ defensive resurgence during this 2-2 start and look at the offensive woes heading into Kansas State.

The Longhorns (2-2, 1-0 Big 12) are coming off a 17-7 win over Iowa State in Ames last Thursday where the defense turned in another strong performance.

Sound Off: Texas-Kansas State preview

  • Safety DeShon Elliott was named the Big 12’s defensive player the week after getting two more interceptions — just as he did against USC. If not for a shanked punt that gave Iowa State a short field, Texas might have pitched a shutout.
  • On offense, where to begin? Fans were no doubt irate about the offensive line, which had four holding penalties in the third quarter alone. But what about the running backs? Should Texas keep giving it to Kyle Porter and Chris Warren III or maybe freshman Toneil Carter? (3:13)
  • And it was announced that quarterback Shane Buechele suffered an ankle injury against Iowa State. He is now wearing a protective boot. Is he still the right leader for this offense, or should Herman give freshman Sam Ehlinger a longer look? (6:50)
