A program on the rise is a lot of fun to write and read about. This book will be as fun for you to read as it was for me to write.

The 7th edition of Thinking Texas Football is the best Texas Longhorn and Big 12 football preview on the market; the season companion that Longhorn football fans can’t do without.

Expect program insight, clean analytical writing and dry wit that you won’t find anywhere else. Written for the discriminating fan who wants more than the typical preseason pablum, the 2019 Prospectus features breakdowns of the Texas offense, defense, special teams, coaching staff, every individual player and position group, a comprehensive, detailed scouting report on every season opponent, Big 12 predictions, analysis of the NFL draft by conference, and thoughtful evaluation of the Longhorn recruiting class with an emphasis on early contributors. And special features with terrific action-packed photos by ace photographer Will Gallagher throughout.

It’s available on Smashwords, Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble. Here’s how to get it...
