Texas have had their fair share of QBs since Vince Young led them to a National Championship, but beyond Colt McCoy none of them have done much no matter what complexion they have been.
I think the problem is that several quarterbacks that did have interest in Texas at one point, but for various reasons didn’t make it to the school went on to have great college careers.
Tua Tagovailoa, Vince Young, Jalen Hurts, Deshaun Watson and J.T. Barrett to name a few.
With that being said, I disagree that you absolutely need a black Quarterback to be successful, you just need a really good one.

Earl Campbell thinks he can fix the Longhorns. Texas’ first Heisman Trophy winner told me last week that he loves Sam Ehlinger, but he has a requirement for future Longhorn quarterbacks. “Until the University of Texas realizes you have to have a black quarterback, and nothing against Ehlinger, you got to have a talented, black quarterback,” Campbell said. “All these schools that are winning, even in the pros, have black quarterbacks. When guys are not open, something can still happen.” He mentioned Tua Tagovailoa, Vince Young, Jalen Hurts, Deshaun Watson and J.T. Barrett, who wanted to come to Texas. Campbell said he really admires Hurts and said they became close friends after the quarterback was a finalist for the Earl Campbell Award. They text each other often. “He reminds me of myself,” Earl said. “He’s a calm individual. He doesn’t get too excited and keeps it all inside. Nick Saban did all he could to kill his motivation. Jalen is one of the most classy individuals I’ve ever seen play sports. It looks like Oklahoma is going to win the Heisman a third year in a row. It looks like he’s not even running, like he’s walking.”
I think Sam Ehlinger is fine, it is the defense that needs the fixing this year.
