Just when it looked like things couldn’t get any worse for Texas football, they did. After an embarrassing overtime loss to the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian had more bad news to share.

According to Sark, 1,000-yard running back Bijan Robinson is out for the year after dislocating his elbow.

In many ways, the sophomore star was the Longhorns offense.

Robinson recorded 1,127 yards on 195 carries for 11 touchdowns this season. The 6-foot, 214-pound back also added 26 catches, almost 300 yards and four scores in the passing game.

Texas’ loss to Kansas marked its fifth-straight. That’s the longest Longhorns losing streak since 1956.

The ugly 57-56 OT loss came to a head when Texas found itself down 35-14 at the half.

UT has two more chances to attempt to finish with a winning record this year.

Licking Heights’ Turchan brings baseball to Reitano SportsCenter

PATASKALA — It is not quite Field of Dreams, but Greg Turchan hopes it is not long before baseball players are coming by the dozen.

Turchan, the Licking Heights varsity baseball coach, is hosting clinics each of the next four Mondays at Reitano SportsCenter. The facility recently opened on U.S. 40 just west of Mink Road.

“We have a couple kids in here we’ve seen in the summer time (playing with my son) and word of mouth, so it’s friends and family for now,” Turchan said. “Hopefully, eventually we will have a bunch of kids who we can’t identify because they are all new. It’s been a good first week.”

The facility currently is set up for basketball, and a Black Friday camp is scheduled. AAU opportunities also are planned.
