Bohls: ‘Ricky wants ’em to run’

Posted September 10th, 2015


Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams attended the Ultimate Tailgate party sponsored by the Longhorn Network and Time Warner Cable at the Long Center Wednesday night.

He had some choice words in regards to the first game of the Longhorns season.

“Running the ball is not a priority for them, he said. “It was for the head coach, but it wasn’t for the offensive coordinator. The offense is looking for an identity. What is it? Who in the heck knows? I’m a little biased but you got to start by establishing the run.”
