A big change has been made on the Forty Acres. Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian announced Monday that junior quarterback Casey Thompson will get his first-ever career start this Saturday when the Longhorns host Rice at Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium. What does this decision mean for freshman QB Hudson Card and the offense?
On this week's episode of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes weigh in on Sarkisian's decision to replace Card for Thompson as the Longhorns' starting QB ahead of Saturday's game, and how the quarterback change could impact the offense down the stretch. Chip and Taylor express their thoughts on Thompson getting his first start at Texas and why this was probably the right move for the Longhorns after last weekend's humbling upset loss to Arkansas.
The Flagship also discuss the glaring issues on the offensive line that need to be cleaned up sooner rather than later, and how the O-line's struggles will only continue to plague the offense in Big 12 play if those problems do not get resolved.
After a quick break, The Flagship returns with our Love it or Leave it segment, with this week's topics focused on how surprised you were at Sarkisian's QB change, if the starting job is Thompson's for the future and the level of concern for the Texas offensive line after showing struggles in the first two games of the season.
Texas fans won't want to miss this loaded episode of The Flagship Podcast.
