Well, it turns out the star quarterback made a pretty accurate statement.The Longhorns still have to prove themselves this upcoming season, but Tom Herman has them on the right track. After winning seven games in 2017, Herman led the team to a 10-4 record the following year.Expectations will be high this year in Austin, which should apply some pressure on the football program. However, it also means the fan base will be out in full force.In 2010, the Longhorns reached an all-time mark for ticket sales with roughly 62,500. This happened right after Texas made the BCS National Championship. Clearly, the win over Georgia has Texas fans ready for the 2019 season because the school could break their ticket sales record very soon.With ticket sales available to the general public, the Longhorns are expecting a potential record-breaking number of sales.From Hookem.com:“It could’ve happened this morning, for all I know while we’re on the phone,” said Drew Martin, UT’s director of external affairs who oversees ticketing. “Our initial goal was 60,000. Then we saw how well we were doing and moved the goal to 63,000.”Texas should be one of the favorites to win the Big 12.The Longhorns are looking for their first title since 2005.[Hookem.com]last_img
