Bring on the Podcast with Ian Boyd

One of our favorite and most insightful guests breaks down the problems with the Texas defense and outlines the many weapons of the Longhorns offense.

Excellent college football writer and Longhorns analyst Ian Boyd joined the podcast, and he told Derek and I why Kansas State's rushing game could be in for a big day on Saturday. But he's also expecting the Texas offense to do well with freshman quarterback Shane Buechele and its powerful running backs, led by D'Onta Foreman. Clearly, Jesse Ertz's status should play a huge factor.

Of course, we also took some time to talk about Charlie Strong, why he hasn't found more success, and his future with the program. It's safe to say Ian isn't particularly impressed, but he also acknowledged some of the unique difficulties for any coach at the University of Texas.

Be sure to check out Ian's work at SB Nation, Football Outsiders and Inside Texas, where he'll have a free game preview you'll want to read up later this week. You can also follow Ian on Twitter at @Ian_A_Boyd.
