The Most Underrated Thing Was …

Well hello, Texas Longhorns.

We’re about to know just how good Steve Sarksian’s team is over the next few weeks with a trip to TCU up next followed up by the showdown against Oklahoma.

For now, though, we all might be sleeping on a team that could be arriving faster than expected.

Texas was quickly memory-dumped from the national consciousness after a 40-21 loss to Arkansas in Week 2. Okay, whatever, Texas has to rebuild a bit and we’ll see what Sark can put together in 2022, and …

Now, the loss to the Hogs certainly seems more than fine – that might be the most pound-for-pound blocking-and-tackling team going right now.

Also blown off was how Louisiana was a preseason top 25 team, and Texas dropkicked it 38-18 in the opener – the Arkansas loss erased the good vibes from that. The Longhorns bounced back by rolling Rice 58-0 with 620 yards of total offense, but who doesn’t?

That was a nice tune-up, and then came the game against a dangerous Texas Tech team loaded with super-seniors and armed with a rising star pro prospect QB in Tyler Shough.

639 yards and 70 points later, Texas was almost perfectly balanced on offense, the defense came up with a pick six and knocked Shough out of the game, and it was an explosive overall performance with the game over midway through the second quarter.

With Oklahoma struggling to get its groove back and Iowa State totally unable to recapture the magic, this might be when Texas makes a whole lot of noise over the last two months.

Again, though, beat TCU, beat Oklahoma. Then it’ll be time to get fired up.
