I didn't grow up a Longhorn fan, but I became one quickly when I started going to UT in 2002, developing an equal love for Austin and love for the Longhorns, and the passion has only grown since then, reaching a pinnacle with the two championships in 2005, though hardly declining since then. Oh yeah, and you can still call me GoBR. Wescott Eberts Follow @SBN_Wescott

I think Card can really benefit from seeing how Casey prepares and leads in games.
My hope is that it encourages him to get out of his comfort zone and become more vocal, because I thought his sideline demeanor in Fayetteville was unacceptable.

You can see that from some media colleagues with takes that verge into hyperbole and myth making.
I’ve mentioned this before, but those takes are coming from a place where writers appreciate Casey because he makes our jobs easier, especially compared to Card, who is not dynamic in interviews at this point in his career.

You're overlooking the fact that winning is really, really hard.

Angilau has played RG before.
So he’s not learning a new position. Not exactly encouraged by where Johnson and Hookfin are with this new staff.

It might be that Karic and Conner are much more capable of contributing in four or five weeks
at which point the incumbent players wouldn’t have much of an excuse for continued performances like this. And if that’s the case, then I know there will be a lot of people who will point to what Sark said today and claim that he was wrong when he wasn’t. People pulled that with Majors last year like he was the same player at the end of the year that he was at the start of the year or in the middle of the year.

This is what I don't understand.
You play to win the game. If the other schemes aren’t good enough, practice them until they’re ready for the game. Because Sark was calling plays against Arkansas that put Texas in a position to fail.

Yeah, really flexible.
Which is remarkable with all the muscle mass that he carries. After the game, he said that he lost some blood flow to one of his legs for a moment and then when he was able to get up and walk it off, he was fine when the blood flow resumed. That play happened on the near sideline to the press box, so we had a pretty good view of it from up there and it looked scary. I probably would have torn both of my hamstrings on a play like that, but I’m a mere mortal.

Mostly luck, I think, but different conditioning may help.
Kerstetter talked this week about how Torre Becton has helped with his flexibility and I imagine that helps to avoid some injuries.
