Default Re: Texas Longhorns Football - 2012

Here is a link to the preseason depth chart for the Longhorns, for those who are interested:

Also, the Longhorns have officially named David Ash the starting QB:

UT officially ends controversy, tabs Ash starter

Just over 19 months ago, David Ash enrolled at the University of Texas fresh off graduating early from Belton High School. He immediately found himself competing with Case McCoy for playing time at quarterback, and the competition continued through two springs, two summers and a football season.

By releasing UT's depth chart and tabbing Ash as his opening-game starter Wednesday, Longhorns coach Mack Brown formally ended one of the most interminable quarterback controversies in college football. "Both quarterbacks are good enough to win games," Brown said. "(Ash) ended up having a little edge, and that was it."

That Ash landed in the No. 1 spot was not a shock. The surprise, if there was one, was that Brown did not make much of an effort to appease McCoy by guaranteeing a specific amount of playing time to the backup. For weeks, Brown and offensive play-caller Bryan Harsin had been reverting to their comments from last year, when they continually praised both quarterbacks equally and insisted a time-share situation could work.

Brown did say McCoy, who started five games to Ash's six last season, will play in the season opener against Wyoming on Sept. 1. But unlike in 2011, Brown couldn't be sure McCoy will play in the first half. "We don't have a plan for it," Brown said.
