Notes from Texas Longhorns Saturday Scrimmage

Horns Digest has the latest notes from the Longhorns final scrimmage before next weekend's spring game.

I'm told there were 18 possessions/drives in Saturday's scrimmage.

 

#1 ... Tyrone Swoopes opened at QB with the first-team offense and led a TD drive that included a 40-yard pass to John Burt, a lot of effective running by Chris Warren and a TD run by D'Onta Foreman.

 

#2 ... Shane Buechele came in with the #2 offense and connected with Collin Johnson for 30 yards with lots of effective running by Roderick Bernard and a few draws by Buechele that set up a FG by Mitchell Becker.

 

#3 ... Buechele then worked with the first-team offense after converting one first down, the drive stalled on a third-down sack by Charles Omenihu.

 

#4 ... Swoopes working with the second team offense led a TD drive that included a 30-yard out and a 20-yard in to Collin Johnson as well as a 3-yard TD pass to Johnson in the corner of the end zone.

 

#5 ... Swoopes then worked with the first-team offense and the drive stalled after a 10-yard slant to Jacorey Warrick.

 

#6 ... Shane worked with the second-team offense and led a three-play TD drive capped by a 60-yard, catch-and-run TD by John Burt (with about 50 of those yards coming after the catch).

 

#7 ... Swoopes worked with the second-team offense and the drive stalled after D'Onta Foreman had a 10-yard run.

 

#8 ... Swoopes worked with the first-team and led a drive to a Mitchell Becker FG. The drive included a 10-yard slant to Lorenzo Joe, RB Trenton Hafley running for 10 yards to pick up a fourth-and-5, a batted down pass by Antwuan Davis on a blitz and Swoopes getting sacked on third down.

 

#9 ... Shane Buechele with the second offense led a drive to a missed FG after another Charles Omenihu sack. Both Evan Moore and Jon Coppens missed the FG attempt.

 

#10 ... Swoopes worked with a hodge-podge offense on a drive that saw D'Onta Foreman run for 20 yards before fumbling.

 

#11 ... Swoopes then led a TD drive that included a 15-yard sweep by D Foreman, a 10-yard pass to Armanti Foreman before D'Onta Foreman capped the possession with a 2-yard TD run.

 

#12 ... Buechele led a TD drive with a hodge-podge offense that included a 5-yard out to Ryan Newsome and a 10-yard pass to TE Chris Fehr that converted a first down before a TD run.

 

#13 ... Swoopes led a drive that stalled 

 

#14 ... Buechele led a drive to a FG by Mitchell Becker that included Collin Johnson catching a 10-yard out and lowering his shoulder and running over a DB. RB Tim Yoder had a 10-yard run, and Buechele barely missed on a 30-yard pass to Collin Johnson in the corner of the end zone.

A minor fight broke out after Buechele ran a delay draw and got clothes-lined. A third-down, lateral pass to Newsome went for no yards, followed by Becker connecting on the FG.

 

#15 ... Swoopes led a TD drive that included a couple bad throws but a bailout, 15-yard run by D Foreman on third-and-10. After a 3-yard run by Foreman on first-and-goal, Swoopes hit TE Andrew Beck for a TD on a rollout pass.

 

#16 ... In red zone work from the 20, Buechele led a TD drive that included a 10-yard pass to TE Chris Fehr before Buechele scored on a QB sneak into the end zone.

 

#17 ... In red zone work from the 20, Buechele connected on a TD pass to Collin Johnson in the corner of the end zone in which Johnson out-jumped the defender and high-pointed the ball.

 

#18 ... In red zone work from the 20, Swoopes handed the ball to Chris Warren who ran over three defenders for a BRUISING TD run.

 

I'm told the offense looked really crisp - especially early.
