There is no controversy.

For now.

Monday Texas head football coach Tom Herman named Sam Ehlinger the starting quarterback for the Longhorns opener against Maryland. While he did leave a little wiggle room, Herman is confident in moving forward with Ehlinger at the helm. Last year the Westlake product started six games - going 2-4 - and led Texas in passing and rushing.

Buechele started seven games last year and earned the nod in 19 in his career.
