4th and 5 breaks down what Texas fans expectations should be for the Texas football team after their first two weeks of practice, the 2022 class after the dead period ends on June 1st, and Texas basketball recruiting under Beard with Maligi and Howard leading the way.
Pretend We're Football gives you an introduction to the new Texas basketball coach, Coach Beard. What will his offense and defense look like, what are the make-ups of his teams, and what kind of guy is he? Then they give their opinion of the hire and the process Texas took to landing on Coach Beard.
4th and 5 is back to talk about what the biggest question marks are going into Spring practices for the Longhorns and what they think will be the end results for each question mark. Then they take a look at what appears to be a giant recruiting month in June for the Longhorns.
Josh and Noah are joined by the guys from Fanatic Perspective, Steven and Tran, to talk about all the story lines heading into Steve Sarkisian's first spring practice as head coach of the Longhorns including the impending QB competition, breakout candidates, and of course plenty of hot takes.
They also previewed basketball because this was recorded before the weekend, so late partial credit for the slight optimism that Noah refused to edit out.
