The Jenni Carlson Show: Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden have covered Texas football for the Austin American-Statesman for a combined 75 years, and they say a big change in the program has been players buying into Steve Sarkisian’s culture.
If you want to talk Texas football, there’s no one better than Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden. They have covered the Longhorns for a combined 75 years as sports columnists at the Austin American Statesman. They joined me this week to talk about how this Texas team compares to other good Longhorn squads of recent years, how Steve Sarkisian has built the program back into a national contender and what Texas needs to do in the Big 12 Championship Game to reverse a losing trend against OSU. All of that and much more on The Jenni Carlson Show.
