Keep feeding Bijan Robinson

We don’t have many games left with the great Bijan carrying this offense on his back. Texas fans should appreciate what we have left with him on the Forty Acres in the last few games of the season.

Bijan showed us the very best of what he could do as he gashed the Kansas defense at every turn. He had multiple long rushing plays of more than 30 yards, a couple of which he turned into touchdowns.


And if Sark had kept Bijan in the game for longer than just about two and a half quarters, he definitely would’ve gone over 300 rushing yards on the day.

As far as the team is concerned, though, my main takeaway from this game is that Sark needs to keep the game planning simple from here on out. Keep feeding Bijan the ball, in whatever way it is working against the defense that Texas is facing that week.

It was easy enough that Texas could run a bunch of zone and counter plays with some good pushes from the interior offensive line along with the offensive tackles effectively sealing the edge play after play.

But in situations when Texas is facing a more stout defense, as it did last weekend against the TCU Horned Frogs, Sark must get the ball in Bijan’s hands in other ways. He’s more than capable enough to do damage in the receiving game, and you can also get him some toss and motion plays to get Bijan out in space.

I don’t think there’s an excuse for the rest of the season as to why Sark can’t keep Bijan involved for the entire game unless Texas is up by a bunch of points as they were on this day.
