Texas DL Moro Ojomo calls out the team for its recent mediocrity

Stop me if you have read this before, but Texas is coming off a disappointing season in which they started the year with high expectations.

That anecdote could be about any season after the Longhorns lost to Alabama in the national championship game in 2009, as Texas has not been the same since. Since that game, the Longhorns have hired and fired two coaches and are now on their third in Steve Sarkisian.

There has been inconsistent play and coaching for years, and senior defensive lineman Moro Ojomo is looking to help end the programs plunge from grace.

This statement is made after an underwhelming first year under Sarkisian, but it seems after certain departures and new additions to the team, that morale and confidence is high.

At the time of his hire, Sarkisian was the hottest coaching name on the market and was expected to come to Austin and display a type of generational offense we had seen at Alabama. However, poor offensive line play and inconsistencies at quarterback plagued Texas all season and the offense was far from generational.

Now, Sarkisian has even more pressure to turn the program around, as that was Texas’ worst record since the Charlie Strong days. However, having players like Ojomo assert themselves as vocal leaders, when it seemed that the team last season didn’t have any, is certainly a step in the right direction.
