Buechele offers continuity at QB
Tom Herman’s not saying it yet, but Shane Buechele will be Texas’ starting quarterback for 2017. Buechele, a sophomore, is an interesting study, because his freshman year was a real roller coaster with some of his struggles coming as a result of injury. Since it’s obvious he’ll be the guy come Sept. 2, I thought it would be interesting to see what former coach Charlie Strong said about him during Big 12 media days in 2016 and compare it with what Herman is saying about him now. Back then, the talk was about Buechele’s being one of the most competitive guys on the roster, such as in pingpong marathons among teammates. .
“You see gym rats — that’s what he is,” Strong
Shane Buechele works with offensive coordinator Tim Beck during drills Monday. Coach Tom Herman isn’t expected to name a starting QB until mid-August.
