Can Texas Adjust To Fast-Paced Offense?
The year 1998 seems like a long time ago ... and it has been. Mack Brown's arrival in Austin quickly steered the University of Texas in the right direction. The Longhorns have competed for championships, and they look to do so again this season.
It appears Brown has his Longhorns on a pretty big stage every four years, and he looks to continue that trend in the 2013 season.
"Vince (Young) and Colt (McCoy) won a lot of football games," Brown told Football.com at the Big 12 media days. "Vince was 30‑2, and Colt was like 45‑7 or 45‑9 or something."
Current quarterback David Ash aims to continue the trend of making the BCS national championship game. The last two times the BCS national championship game was played at the Rose Bowl, the Longhorns were there.
"That's our expectation for David," Brown said of his junior quarterback. "David has grown up. He's learned a whole lot. There were times last year that he played like Colt and he played like Vince and looked as good as anybody in the country, and then there were others times where he struggled some."
Texas returns 19 starters this year, the most in college football. Ash will be surrounded by play-makers on offense.
