What are the definitive five takeaways that we can put together for the Texas football program after a seven win 2019 regular season?
Finishing up the 2019 regular season with a mark of 7-5 (5-4 Big 12) wasn’t what the fans had in mind for the Texas football program heading into the fall. Head Texas football coach Tom Herman wrapped up his regular season is a less than ideal fashion. If Herman and his Texas team lose in their bowl game, he’ll match his win total from his first year on the Forty Acres.
Seven wins shouldn’t be the standard for this program, but down years will happen. Especially with how close to the chest Herman likes to play against his Big 12 competition, there were bound to be bounces that went against Texas this season. There were one possession losses at the hands of the Iowa State Cyclones and LSU Tigers that could’ve easily gone the other way this season.
Flip that loss against Iowa State, and Texas doesn’t have near as much pressure on the coaching staff right now. Recover an onside kick that senior wide receiver Collin Johnson dropped on the sideline at home against LSU, and Texas has a win possibly over one of currently top two ranked teams in the nation.
Yet, Texas rounded out the 2019 regular season with a nice 25-point home victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Black Friday at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. That was one of the more complete efforts of the regular season for Texas.
Here’s a look into our definitive five takeaways from the 2019 regular season after the Week 14 win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders by the score of 49-24 for the Texas Longhorns football program.
