Steve Sarkisian is looking to do what has not been done on the Forty Acres in a long time. He and offensive line coach Kyle Flood are working on building a great offensive line unit for this year and beyond.

Texas flashed good offensive line play as recently as 2018, but for the most part the unit has been poor over the last decade. It is the most pressing issue facing the Longhorns in building a successful program.

Should Texas go 8-4 and begin to build a championship contending offensive line for the 2023 season, this year is a success.

If Texas goes 10-2 but cuts corners developing the offensive line, we could look back at the 2022 season as a failure.

There is a world in which Texas both wins ten games and maximizes offensive line development. Should two young starters emerge as impact players up front, the Texas offense could carry the team to a Big 12 championship.

Texas hopes it can both win now and win later. Nevertheless, the trajectory of the program hinges on whether or not they can build an offensive line and not let it deteriorate.
