I’ve had some media and fans tell me it didn’t matter that Texas started true freshman Sam Ehlinger against USC instead of its No. 1 QB, Shane Buechele. Ehlinger did a nice job in a second half but here’s what Texas coach Tom Herman said about this week’s game.
“When we start practice (Tuesday), Shane will get the majority of the reps with the 1s.”
So apparently it mattered to Herman.
