    Longhorns Suspend Gary Johnson For Kansas Game

    As Texas prepares to take on Kansas in a game with Big 12 title chances on the line, the Longhorns will be forced to play without senior linebacker Gary Johnson. University of Texas officials confirmed Johnson has been suspended for Friday's game for a violation of team rules.

    This is the first instance of Johnson having to serve a suspension since he transferred to Texas from Dodge City Community College ahead of second-year head coach Tom Herman's first season coaching the Longhorns.

    Johnson has played in 24 career games with 18 starts during his career at Texas, and holds a team high 74 tackles on the season, including 14 tackles for loss and five sacks.

    The Longhorns did receive some positive news on the opposite side of the ball this week after University of Texas officials announced Wednesday that sophomore quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who has been dealing with a lingering shoulder injury, significantly increased his throwing reps during Wednesday's practice and is expected to start Friday's road game against the Jayhawks.

    "Sam Ehlingerís injured right shoulder continues to progress as Texasí sophomore QB fully participated in practice on Wednesday," UT officials said Wednesday afternoon. "He increased his workload to 40 live throws during UTís final workout before heading to Lawrence on Thanksgiving Day. Following practice, Tom Herman said he is expecting Ehlinger to play against the Jayhawks on Friday."

    Just 50 minutes till kickoff in Lawrence, and there's maybe 200 fans in the stadium. Maybe.

    Kansas is a terrible place to play in November. It's cold, stadium usually empty outside of whatever diehard fans the other team brings. Usually nothing on the line. I don't see how Texas is up for this game.

    They are playing for a chance to play in the Big 12 CC game and to give Tom Herman more B.S. to talk about, like how the goal is always to win the conference. Sure. A 3 loss conference winner is the goal.

    17 minutes before game time. A Kansas basketball game could potentially have more fans than the football team brings out today.

    Well the fix is in for Texas. Just saw the latest late hit I’ve ever seen and two refs within 5 yards of it just look on Idly

    Kansas Kentucky Duke North Carolina are basketball schools. Their football teams are fielded due to NCAA rules and they are traditionally non competitive.

    Yea you would because he slows up. Plus, why would a referee ever not be looking down at his feet?

    Think about this Texas fans. That was Ehlinger's first interception since Maryland. His streak was a Big 12 and Texas record.

    Well Texas isn't making the playoffs and never was so I don't see the angle there. They do want to win this game and then the Big 12 Championship, which would lead to a better bowl game and bring in more $ for the program. Would also help bring in better players. So once again confused

    Friday's winner will play Texas next week at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, if the Longhorns can get past Kansas on Friday. If not, Oklahoma and West Virginia could meet again a week later for the title. (ESPN)

    Jtoler - when I think of the playoffs. I think of real teams who are going to the playoffs. Teams I scouted out throughout the year. Just look at the futures every now and then and it becomes pretty clear Oklahoma is scratch off. I'm not going to waste time getting a hard on thinking of what if Oklahoma makes the playoffs.

    Why don't you chip in with some logic Maggie. You usually tend to just blab bullshit and not touch on any sports what soever. Do you even watch sports? Why are you here?

    So instead of me laughing at someone who is arguing that 2+2=7, you want me to write an informative and compassionate post about how it really =4???

    You are almost as dumb as he is
    So did you go 9-1 again yesterday??
