In this week’s preview edition of The Flagship Podcast ahead of Texas’ attempt to claim the Longhorns’ first win over TCU in Fort Worth since 2013 (when a lightning storm caused a three-hour delay in the middle of the game), we talk to Brian Estridge, the voice of TCU football and longtime morning show host on WBAP in Dallas-Fort Worth. We get right to it and ask Estridge what the (bleep) happened to the TCU defense in giving up 595 yards, including 350 yards rushing, in a 42-34 loss at home last Saturday against crosstown rival SMU in the Battle For The Iron Skillet. In addition to four members of the SMU staff having worked at TCU previously under Gary Patterson, including SMU head coach Sonny Dykes (as an analyst), the Horned Frogs were missing some key defensive starters who should be back this week to face Texas, Estridge said. Estridge weighs in on if Patterson might be simplifying some things this week to help some of the inexperienced members of TCU’s secondary. So how has TCU gone 2-8 in games before facing Texas the past 10 years and 3-6 in games after facing the Longhorns yet has gone 7-2 against UT the last nine years? Estridge shares his can’t-miss theory on the matter. Gone is offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie (now at Texas Tech). So the TCU offense is being run by prodigal Horned Frogs’ play caller Doug Meacham (who served as co-coordinator with Cumbie previously) with influence from analyst and former Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill, Estridge said. Estridge breaks down the play of a TCU offense loaded at the skill positions. Horned Frogs’ RB Zach Evans is averaging a Big 12-best 110.0 yards per game rushing and 7.9 yards per carry; and WR Taye Barber is averaging 23.0 yards per catch; while quarterback Max Duggan, who is 2-0 against Texas, has seven TD passes with two interceptions and is the team’s second-leading rusher (behind Evans). Saturday marks Texas’ first Big 12 road game of 2021, and Estridge talks about what kind of a reception the SEC-bound Longhorns and former TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte might receive. Estridge wraps things up with how he thinks Saturday’s game will play out. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    The Flagship: Late game struggles plague Texas in loss to Oklahoma State

    26:53

    The Longhorns had the chance to bounce back from last weekend's second-half collapse to Oklahoma when Texas hosted No. 12 ranked Oklahoma State Saturday. The Longhorns led for the majority of Saturday's game against the Cowboys, only to once again collapse in the second half, leading to a 32-24 loss to Oklahoma State. On this week's game reaction edition of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes break down the Longhorns' second conference loss of the season, this time to the Cowboys, which was a bit reminiscent of last weekend's late game loss to Oklahoma. The Flagship weighs in on the offensive issues that plagued the team in the second half, which once again was a product of poor offensive line play, penalties and the offense taking their foot off the gas as the game wore on, especially after going up by double digits on the Cowboys early in the third quarter. Chip and Taylor also discuss what Steve Sarkisian had to say about the Longhorns' psyche when games start going in their opponents favor and how the bye week will be a chance for the coaches to try to correct the mental fragility of this Texas team. Catch all of that and much more on this week's loaded Texas-Oklahoma State game reaction edition of The Flagship Podcast. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    The Flagship: Texas will face Oklahoma State without two key starters

    34:00

    The Longhorns will need to have a short memory to put last weekend's heart-breaking loss to Oklahoma in the past and get ready for another Top 25 battle this Saturday when No. 12 ranked Oklahoma State heads to Austin for an 11 a.m. kickoff against No. 25 ranked Texas. But the Longhorns will be without two key starters on both sides of the ball when they host the Cowboys this weekend. The Flagship Podcast gets the Texas-Oklahoma State game week started off with a loaded show as Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes discuss all head coach Steve Sarkisian had to say Monday after he watched the film of the Longhorns' loss to the Sooners in the Red River Shootout. The Flagship weighs in on Sarkisian's concerns coming out of the Oklahoma game, including the lack of pass-rush shown in the second half against Oklahoma and the Longhorns' inability to get pressure on true freshman QB Caleb Williams, and also how Texas will replace two key players on offense and defense after he announced wide receiver Jordan Whittington (clavicle) and edge-rusher Jacoby Jones (foot) will undergo surgery after both went down with injuries against the Sooners. The co-hosts discuss the guys who are next in line to replace the injured Longhorns, and why sophomore edge rusher Alfred Collins has a chance to solidify a starting role on the defense after back-to-back games where he made big plays coming off of the bench. After a quick break, The Flagship returns with our Love it or Leave it segment, with this weeks topics focused on how alarming the defense's last three games have been, the level of concern for the Texas offense in replacing Whittington and what to make of Oklahoma State's 5-1 record against Texas in the last six games in Austin.

    The Flagship: Red River recap of Texas' stunning loss to Oklahoma

    29:39

    It was the tale of two halves for Texas football Saturday inside the Cotton Bowl. The Longhorns got off to a roaring start against the Sooners and enforced their will throughout the first half of the Red River Shootout. But the first-half dream turned into a second-half nightmare when Oklahoma erased an 18-point deficit coming out of halftime and handed the Longhorns their second loss of the season, 55-48. The Flagship Podcast returns with a recap of Saturday's thriller between Texas and Oklahoma. Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes break down the Longhorns' performance against the Sooners and weigh in on everything from the play by Casey Thompson, to the impressive career performance of wide receiver Xavier Worthy and the key moments that led to the second-half collapse in the Cotton Bowl. Chip and Taylor take a look at the defense's performance and explain why fans need to tap the breaks on calling for jobs considering the amount of plays (81) and time (35:23) the defense was on the field against the Sooners compared to that of the Texas offense, which only managed 61 plays on 24:37 time of possession and converted just one third down in the second half of the game against Oklahoma. The Flagship wraps up the show with an early look at what's to come for the Longhorns as they enter the second half of the 2021 slate beginning Saturday when Texas returns to Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium to host Oklahoma State at 11 a.m. CT on FOX.

    The Flagship: Texas set for heated Red River Shootout battle against Oklahoma

    51:15

    It's Red River Shootout week on The Flagship Podcast! The Longhorns and Sooners are set for the annual battle in the Cotton Bowl as No. 21 ranked Texas and No. 6 ranked Oklahoma prepare for the 117th meeting between the two rivalry programs. On the early week edition of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes take an early look ahead to Saturday's Texas-OU game. The Flagship recaps all first-year head coach Steve Sarkisian had to say during his Monday press conference with the Longhorns coming off of a much-needed road win at TCU last weekend. The co-hosts deliver the latest injury update on the Longhorns, including some bad news for the offense after Sarkisian announced senior offensive lineman Denzel Okafor will soon undergo season-ending surgery after he went down in last Saturday's game against the Horned Frogs. The Flagship discuss what Okafor's absence will mean for the Texas offensive line, which will need to play its best game of the year against a solid Sooners' defense that currently ranks No. 7 in the country against the run. Chip and Taylor also discuss the production of sophomore running back Bijan Robinson coming off of his outstanding performance against the Horned Frogs that saw him rush for 216 yards and two touchdowns in the 32-27 win over TCU, and how crucial it is for the Longhorns’ receivers to step up their game and help take some of the workload off of Robinson this weekend when they take on the Sooners. After a quick break, The Flagship returns with our 'Love it or leave it' segment, with this week's topics touching on the level of concern for Texas after showing some struggles on both sides of the ball against TCU, how important it is for Texas to not expect Robinson to continue to carry the load for the Longhorns' offense and what to make of the Sooners close games and early offensive struggles this season.
