Texas football may need to win a bunch of games this year if head coach Charlie Strong wants to keep his job. One way the Longhorns can do that is by having something resembling an offense, and if this touchdown pass that junior receiver Armanti Foreman hauled in from freshman quarterback Shane Buechele is any indication, then Texas may be able to put up some points this fall.
Buechele is Texas’ first true freshman starter under center since 1944, but on his first drive, he showed total command of the Longhorns’ new uptempo offense. There were plenty of impressive moments for the Texas native, but none were more impressive than the dime that he dropped into Foreman. If he put this anywhere else, Foreman doesn’t get six points, and considering how he did this against a really good Fighting Irish defense, Buechele deserves a ton of credit for his accuracy and his composure.
Of course, Foreman made an insane play on this ball to haul it in. Not only did he have to contort his body in an attempt to catch this ball, but he also had to catch it over his shoulder (which is so, so difficult) and make sure that he got his foot in. And if you have any doubts that Foreman got his foot down, this shot from ESPN proves that he managed to do just that.
It kind of goes without saying, but if Texas can score touchdowns all year on long passes that their receivers haul in while contorting their body, then the Longhorn offense is going to be pretty good.
