Matt Coleman, Texas' starting point guard of the future, comes out during player intros, takes a bow.
By all indications, this should be a huge step forward, especially with Bamba, Osetkowski and Coleman. Keep an eye… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

Texas RB Kyle Porter (chest) was limited today at practice. He should be non-contact tomorrow, expected to play vs. Okla State, per UT.

Texas coach Shaka Smart sees no easy fix to basketball recruiting issues, discusses anthem hookem.com/mens-sports/me…
Herman: "For us, the only big-picture goal, we want to be in the conversation for the Big 12 title in the month of November and December."
Herman: "The first game surprised me. It’s surprised everybody. There was a lot of introspection after that first game."
Herman: "God creates us all with a genetic potential." Mine is personally outstanding, really.
Herman on Ehlinger coming back into the game: "Was I surprised? No. When it comes to injuries, we do what the doctor tells us to."
Herman: "We’re building a program, not a season, not a game."
Herman said he doesn't want Ehlinger to think he's Larry Csonka. "And then it turns into, coach, who is Larry Csonka?"
Herman on why Johnson has been demoted on the depth chart: "Collin did not have his best game. Dorian is playing well, so that’s why."
Tom Herman: "We’re here for a reason and that’s to rebuild this thing from a bunch of years of mediocrity and sub-mediocrity."
Herman: "My challenge to our coaches this week is we’ve got to get our guys playing smarter."
Texas coach Tom Herman starts weekly presser. "We understand that losing to Oklahoma is never fun. It stings worse than most losses do."
Texas-Baylor will be at 11 a.m. on Oct. 28.

Stats that look worrisome. Ok State (48.8), Tech (44.8), WVU (44.2), TCU (41.3) rank 1-2-3-5 in Big 12 scoring. Texas averages 33.7 (7th).
Texas-Oklahoma State will be an 11 am kickoff on ABC.

Oklahoma 29, Texas 24: Magical rally falls short, but the Sam Ehlinger era is underway hookem.com/football-news/…
Texas G Patrick Vahe on Ehlinger: "If it was up to me, I’d give him the ironman award. He played his butt off."
OU coach Lincoln Riley: “That’s why they call it the Red River rivalry.”
Texas QB Sam Ehlinger: "The atmosphere was incredible. Losing the game is not incredible. I’m looking forward to the next three years."
Herman on what Ehlinger showed him today: "He showed me all he needed to show me in Los Angeles."
Ehlinger on leaving the game in the 4th Q. "I was never confused where I was at all. They were just taking precaution."
Texas coach Tom Herman starts the presser. "Not the outcome we expected nor hoped for. The issues are not effort, and that's a start."
Final numbers: Ehlinger goes 19 for 39 for 278 yards. Runs for 106 more. OU's Baker Mayfield throws for 302 yards.
Final in Dallas: No. 12 Oklahoma 29, Texas 24. Wild scramble at the end comes up short. Still, Sam Ehlinger has a hell of a heart.
Final play needs a 58-yard TD.
No catch again after review.
Boomer Sooner is on a constant loop right now.
Well, I'm not sure. Horns are at least going down swinging.
Ehlinger's next pass is complete to Humphrey. Horns with one last chance.
On fourth-and-9, Ehlinger gets the first down. Horns spike it to kill the clock.
Fourth down with 19 seconds left.
Herman chomping that gum like there's no tomorrow.
And now a catch by Humphrey. Sooners fans on the concourse are nervous as hell.
First ball to Collin Johnson to the 28-yard line.
Well, Sam. If you want the storybook finish, now's the time.
Holding on the Texas offense as Ehlinger throws it away on fourth down. OU takes over with 1:52 remaining.
Heard was standing on the OU sideline, just sort of chilling, on third-and-13. Ehlinger throws it away, though.
Buechele looks shaken up, but Ehlinger is now standing in the huddle on the sideline during this timeout. Just incredible theater.
Buechele now running straight ahead. He's gets another first down to the OU 31. Ehlinger is now out of the medical tent, too.
Buechele, who is a gimpy, can't run that much. He gets only 2 yards to midfield.
Ehlinger is up, walking on the bench. Shane Buechele will be into the game.
Three plays on second-and-7, and Ehlinger just keeps it himself. Races up the right sideline to the Texas 46.
Looks like Zach Shackelford will be called for a personal foul, illegal block, to wipe out a 15-yard gain by Warren.
Andrews catches a pass out of bounds. So it's a five-point game. OU leads 29-24 with 6:53 remaining.
Wow. Touchdown Oklahoma. Andrews gets loose down the sideline for a 59-yard score. OU back in front.
And the PAT is good. Texas, after trailing by 20, is now leading 24-23.
Touchdown Texas. Ehlinger keeps it himself and goes in. Escapes pressure. Holy smokes.
The Westlake-Lake Travis connection again. Ehlinger with a 21-yard swing pass to Cade Brewer to the OU 8.
Texas RB Kyle Porter (chest) is out for the rest of the game, per UT.
Another great catch by Hemphill. Wow. Hell of a throw by Ehlinger. This one for 22 yards.
Wow. One-handed catch by Hemphill. Amazing.
Brandon Jones, Breckyn Hager with solid pass break-ups on second and third down. OU has to punt again.
Ehlinger's throw is incomplete on fourth-and-8. Herman has no faith in Rowland. OU takes over at the 27-yard line with 11:26 remaining.
Ehlinger starts with a monster throw to Devin Duvernay to the OU 29-yard line. A 42-yard strike.
Hemphill loses 10 yards by running sideways and backward on the punt return. OU with a 57-yard punt. Texas starts at its own 29.
Sermon stood up by Malcolm Roach at the 5-yard line and driven back into the end zone. Horns force a gigantic three-and-out.
Michael Dickson with a boomer. It's a 62-yard special to the OU 2.
Binder says go... well... if you turn it sideways... it says punt.
Kyler Murray warming up on the sideline for the Sooners.
End of the 3Q. Holy smokes, gang. Buckle up for what could be a hell of a 4th quarter. OU leads 23-17, but Texas has momentum.
Damn, this place is loud now.
After seeing the review, Jones doesn't look offsides. But he doesn't get credit for the sack as Mayfield got rid of it. Texas ball.
Officials rule there was no intentional grounding. Fourth down Sooners.
Mayfield needs the trainers to get off the field.
Wow. Brandon Jones jumped offsides, and that's not called. Now, there's a fumble. Texas ball? It's pandemonium.
Geez, Baker Mayfield escapes an Omenihu sack for an 8-yard gain. Just terrific for the pride of Lake Travis.
Remember, as K-State's Bill Snyder said last week, "Pushing is allowed."
Touchdown Texas. Ehlinger literally pushes Warren into the end zone. Whoa. Big-time play by the QB there.
Ehlinger keeping the ball himself here near the goal line on the option play. First-and-goal at the OU 1.
This sounds weird, but why do I feel like Ehlinger would like a roughing penalty. Like a wake-up alarm.
Another big screen pass on third down. Warren catches this one, and OU commits a roughing the passer penalty.
Ehlinger throws out of bounds to Dorian Leonard on third-and-8. But OU's Parnell Motley flagged for holding. First down, Bevos.
Warren on the wheel route. First down Texas.
Horns dodge another bullet of sorts. Sooners have to settle for a 36-yard FG. Seibert's third of the day. OU leads 23-10.
A Mayfield pass just literally hits UT's Breckyn Hager between the 4 and 4 on his jersey. Dropped. Wow.
Hit Breckyn Hager between the 4 and the 4. Dropped.
 
Ha, I think you were fractionally ahead of me.
