Get some sleep, Texas. You are kicking at 11 a.m. native — on Huge Midday. 

With the announcement that Alabama’s first highway recreation this season might be on the Forty Acres in opposition to Texas comes the very best alternative the Longhorns have had since 2009 to throw down a marker and provides discover to the remainder of the game. 

Texas is again. 

Or not less than will probably be if Steve Sarkisian can lead his group to what can be this system's greatest win since Vince Younger bumped into the tip zone to ship the 2005 nationwide championship to Austin.

Whereas I consider Texas is loaded to get after its opponents, it is value mentioning that Sarkisian has at his disposal a bonus different Texas coaches did not: time, expertise and tutelage in Tuscaloosa.

It isn't simply that Sarkisian was the final offensive coordinator to win a nationwide title at Alabama. It is also that he has added to his Longhorn program assistants and gamers he helped recruit who additionally gained a nationwide title with the Tide.

Amongst these are special-teams coach Jeff Banks, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Kyle Flood, large receiver Agiye Corridor, tight finish Jahleel Billingsley and offensive lineman Tommy Brown. All have been on the employees or the roster at Alabama.

Add to this the truth that Sarkisian pulled the No. 1 participant within the switch portal and former No. 1 participant within the nation, Quinn Ewers, and former blue-chip cornerback Ryan Watts from Ohio State, in addition to Wyoming standout receiver Isaiah Neyor, and added former Pittsburgh large receiver coach Brennan Marion — simply after Marion coached Jordan Addison to a Biletnikoff Award — and it is simple to see why Longhorns followers are enthusiastic about this 2022 group, even after their squad went 5-7 final season.

You possibly can watch the "The No. 1 Ranked Present with RJ Younger" on YouTube or subscribe on podcast platforms, together with Apple Podcasts.

Having this recreation on FOX additionally permits Sarkisian the primary likelihood to answer Saban’s remark about how a lot he misses the time when successful in Tuscaloosa was nonetheless arduous — like Elle Woods after she received into Harvard Regulation. 

"One of many issues I prefer to see us be capable to work again to is all the things in school soccer has all the time had parity," Saban said on the Paul Finebaum Present. "I don’t suppose we've that steadiness proper now, which might have an effect on the parity of faculty soccer and school athletics as a complete. I do know we’ve received quite a lot of good folks engaged on it, and I’m certain they’ll provide you with a very good resolution."

Maintain up. Wait a minute. One thing ain't proper.

Saban needs parity?!

That is just like the Empire rolling up with the Demise Star, saying it’s bored with destroying total moons.   

Like a Targaryen saying they're bored with being the one household with dragons.

Like a two-legged man saying he is bored with beating a one-legged man in that one contest.

Like fee-fi saying it is bored with fo-fum. 

Now, quiet because it's saved, Texas leads Alabama 7-1 all time. However Saban has lorded over the game since his first nationwide title at Alabama. 

And he did not get to be the best school soccer coach ever by rooting for parity. This can be a man who left the NFL partly as a result of he received to pick out just one first-round choose when he might have 25 in school. 

This can be a man who answered Marc Spears’ car-ride query of "Aren't you drained?" with "Bored with what?! Successful?!"

That is the person Texas needs, and that is the person Texas is gonna get. They need that man and that program as a result of it is the quickest technique to persuade even essentially the most ardent doubters that you're for actual. That Texas is again.
