Another mediocre season for the Longhorns, which is unacceptable for its massive loyal fan base. UT did finish bowl eligible at 6-6 before getting whooped by Arkansas in the Texas Bowl, but they didn’t show up in two major games against #6 TCU at home and #11 K-State. They did beat #24 West Virginia at home, but it was clear the season would be lost after a 3-5 start. Tyrone Swoopes remains quarterback for now, but redshirt freshman Jerrod Heard is hot on his tail and should see playing time. Senior Johnathan Gray leads a deep group of running backs, which they’ll need with major questions on the O-line and receiver core. The defensive line forces pressure well and a youth infusion at linebacker looks promising. Texas won with defense last year and will probably do the same this year, but the offense can’t be worse than it was in 2014. The fans have been patient, but it appears they’ll need to be even more patient with Charlie Strong entering just his second year. Texas still leverages its brand to recruits and has a solid line of talent coming in. We’ll see their progress immediately in primetime at Notre Dame in Week 1. The Texas Longhorns operate under head coach Strong at Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium in Austin. They represent one of the NCAA’s largest athletic brands and an anchor of the struggling Big 12 Conference. You know a school has serious clout when they’ve begun broadcasting their games on their own national sports station, the Longhorn Network. But it’d be put to better use with better play, as despite a top ten ranking at some point every year between 1995 and 2010, Texas has gone 36-28 in the last five years. They went 58-8 in the five years before that with two national title game appearances. Texas has sent 298 players to the NFL including Priest Holmes, Ricky Williams, Casey Hampton, Earl Campbell, Derrick Johnson, Jamaal Charles, Earl Thomas, Colt McCoy, Brian Orakpo, Lamarr Houston, and Vince Young. Texas has four national titles, 53 bowl appearances, 32 conference titles, and a .712 winning percentage. UT shares rivalries with Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Arkansas, and a dormant one with Texas A&M as of their 2012 shift to the SEC. 2015 home opponents include Rice, Cal, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, K-State, Kansas, and Texas Tech.
