What The Sporting News thinks about Texas


What The Sporting News thinks about Texas

Texas. First, a disclaimer: Considering the depleted numbers on defense last fall, Mack Brown did the best coaching job of his career getting 10 wins out of the Longhorns.

A year later, what do we have? Essentially the same defense and an offense that has no legitimate tailback and no deep threat at wide receiver. And you thought quarterback Colt McCoy regressed last season.

It's a testament to Brown and what he has built that Texas is ranked in the top 10 of nearly every preseason poll. But this team isn't close to top 10-caliber; it'll be lucky to stumble into the Cotton Bowl.

The culprits: Recruits who haven't panned out. Players such as all-world linebacker Sergio Kindle and five-star defensive end Eddie Jones.


Just something interesting to think about and discuss for the next two months or so.
