Derek Carr certainly made an impression on Jon Gruden in the months leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft.

The then-Fresno State Bulldog was one of the college signal-callers selected to participate in Gruden’s QB Camp, erectile and while his knowledge of the game and obvious athleticism stuck with Gruden during their time together, see Carr also made sure to leave a more lasting memory with the former Raiders head coach and current Monday Night Football analyst.

“You know what, price I can remember him [Carr] throwing the ball like it was yesterday,” said Gruden Wednesday on a conference call with national media heading into the Raiders Week 11 Monday Night Football matchup against the Houston Texans. “We had two cameras set up 19 or 20 yards down the field on each hash mark, and we threw some seam passes into the bullseye where the Go Pro camera was, and most of the guys hit the screen, a couple of guys would hit the target; Derek Carr hit the bullseye both times and broke my cameras.”

COLLEGE STATION, unhealthy Tex. — Twenty minutes to midnight, health and droves stream into — not out of — the stadium. Two minutes past midnight, and everyone from the field to the upper decks suddenly knows it’s time to bend slightly and put hands upon knees to state a passage everyone also seems to know. Seventeen minutes past midnight, and there comes one of the better spectacles you’ll ever see at any hour, let alone 17 past midnight: tens of thousands interlocking arms and, often, knees, and oscillating back and forth.

Twenty-six minutes past midnight, and everybody files out neatly, occasional clots on the stairwells.

HOUSTON — Hours after news broke on Sept. 25 of LSU firing Les Miles, Houston athletic director Hunter Yurachek’s phone buzzed furiously.

Reporters tried to reach Yurachek — the man who has the unenviable task of trying to retain college football’s hottest head coach, Tom Herman — seeking to confirm a report that LSU reached out to Herman’s agent.

Yurachek didn’t take the calls, but before the night was over, Herman was standing at the northwest corner of TDECU Stadium after the Cougars’ practice, answering reporters’ questions about whether he had been contacted by the Tigers.

The calendar hadn’t yet turned to October, but LSU’s decision to part ways with Miles after four games set the rumor mill churning about the second-year coach’s future. Welcome to college football coaching searches in 2016.

“You guys like talking about things,” Herman said. “It’s your job to talk about things. And it’s my job to make sure a bunch of 18- to 22 year-olds play really hard on game day and execute really well. It really doesn’t creep into our lives very much.”

The chatter won’t stop anytime soon, particularly with the struggles ongoing at Texas and USC and the heat on their incumbent coaches. The more success Houston has — and the more vacancies that pop up at perennial power programs — the more intense the discussion surrounding Herman’s future will become.

Scruggs: Texas sure confused a very good Notre Dame team with its tempo in the season opener. I think Charlie Strong and his staff will continue to use both signal callers and as the year goes along they will tweak the rotation as they see fit.

It certainly will keep defenses coordinators working overtime during the week because the sub-packages needed to defend each UT quarterback will vary.

Is it overreacting to say that Texas and Houston are the two best teams in the state?

Scruggs: Of course it is. Having all spring and summer to gear up for a top-10 opponent is easy. Two years ago Ohio State lost at home to unranked Virginia Tech and never lost again as the won the College Football Playoff.

Texas still has to play a tough schedule in the Big 12 and Houston still has a matchup with a ranked Louisville team to play in mid November.

In this edition of “Four Downs” we look at how Texas is overhauling the wide receiver position, cialis which three-star true freshman could contribute right away, rx who among the veterans needs to step up and we get a good piece advice from Lamarr Houston.

First Down: Roster shaping up at wide receiver

Watching Texas commit Damion Miller run wild at the 7-on-7 state tournament Friday, order I couldn’t help but think about how the Longhorns are finally figuring things out at wide receiver. The fact Texas hasn’t had a first-team All-Big 12 skill position player since Jordan Shipley is alarming, but it’s also frustrating since the issues on the outside could have been avoided.

Texas has certainly struggled at wide receiver due to erratic quarterback play. Nevertheless, the Longhorns went through a period from the 2009 to 2014 recruiting classes where 19 receiver signings have yielded only three All-Big 12 players (Mike Davis, John Harris and Jaxon Shipley) entering the 2016 season. There were once high hopes for the likes of Greg Timmons, Darius White, Chris Jones, Cayleb Jones, Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander, players who either transferred or were dismissed from the program within their first two years. Add that to an undefined offensive scheme since Colt McCoy left the Forty Acres, and the issues have compounded.
