After an LSU player took a swipe at Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger, the Longhorns returned the favor.Photos from the weekend show the Longhorns wearing shirts that read, “There’s only one DBU.”The shirt was a clear shot at LSU for taking the title “Defensive Back U” for all of the stars DBs they’ve produced.Though LSU has produced many Pro Bowl DBs over the year, clearly the Longhorns feel they deserve the tag.Texas taking early shots at LSU— MK💜⚜️🍷 (@mknovaa) September 1, 2019Some Texas defensive backs in the NFL include six-time Pro Bowler Earl Thomas, along with Kenny Vaccaro, and Quandre Diggs. They’ve also produced Pro Bowlers Michael Griffin and Nathan Vasher.Dallas Cowboys coaching legend Tom Landry made his NFL debut as a defensive back out of Texas too.But LSU is largely considered DBU for some of the many superstars they’ve developed recently too. Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Eric Reid, and Jamal Adams are just some of the Pro Bowl talents they’ve developed in just the last ten years.The argument over who the real DBU is won’t be identified this weekend. But you gotta love to see two teams using the tag to ramp up the smack talk.Texas and LSU highlight college football’s Week 2 slate, kicking off at 7:30 p.m. E.T. on Saturday night.last_img read more
