Desmond Harrison still in the doghouse?

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

According to Webster's, the phrase "doghouse" has been permanently renamed "The Desmond Harrison Villa."

If you were looking forward to seeing the big JUCO transfer this Spring shoring up the left tackle position, the prevailing belief is that we should all crap in one hand and wish in the other and see which one fills up first.

Harrison is either back in, or has not left, the Charlie Strong doghouse.  So unless he puts together an amazing spring and summer of academic, social and athletic progress, his likely contribution to the 2015 team will be scaring opposing teams as he gets off of the bus....and walks to the Longhorn bench.

Given the 2014 season performance of Camrhon Hughes (disoriented), Kent Perkins (a guard) and Marcus Hutchins (scrappy, but overwhelmed), don't be surprised if Texas relies heavily on developing JUCOs Brandon Hodges and Tristan Nickelson as well as any number of Wickline's mad alchemical combinations.

If Texas wants to field an offense better than the travesty we saw in 2014, solutions in the OL and at QB will need to materialize soon.
