We took a quick break from the animosity to have a nice discussion about the rivalry between Oklahoma and Texas.
Hello, Sooner fans! We’ve decided to take a short break from the animosity to have an civil conversation about the game between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns. Joining us this week is Cody Daniel, who is the co-editor of Burnt Orange Nation. Go ahead and give him a follow at @CodyDanielSBN.
Texas seems to have righted the ship after a rocky start, especially on the defensive side. Is this due primarily to adjustments that have been made, or are the players just finally getting a hang of things?
I’d say a combination of both, but the noticeable adjustments have come defensively. Todd Orlando’s scheme is fairly complex, as it should be to overwhelm offenses, but the team looked a bit too tight against Maryland and it showed. They’ve since just been flying around and the results are clear. Now if Tim Beck can just make adjustments and get the ground game going, Texas might be up to something.
