Default Big Twelve previews Texas

Hard to make them leave home once they've been to hippie holler:

Texas players are currently known for being ridiculously talented, there's an NFL farm system in Austin, and for good and bad, to have brains. At the very least, they're far more pensive than your average college football meathead.

Does any big-time program have as many big-time talents sticking around for their senior seasons? While that's admirable, and we'd all like it if everyone stayed in school until their eligibility was up, it questions whether or not Texas cranks out killers.

The Schedule: Considering Arkansas is in a rebuilding phase, and the old Southwest Conference showdown is at home, the non-conference schedule couldn't be much fluffier. Oooooh, there's a game against Sun Belt champion Florida Atlantic. Oooooh, at trip to UTEP before facing Rice. There's a week off before going to Colorado in a can't-look-ahead game before back-to-back dates with Oklahoma and Missouri. Going to Texas Tech will be nasty and traveling to Lawrence to face Kansas isn't like it used to be. There's a week off after playing the Jayhawks and before the rivalry game against Texas A&M.

Sure it questions it, makes for a good storyline. Does not make it necessarily so.

Seniors on roster? The fact someone is positioning this as a measurement is asinine.

Interesting write up.

Lot of people are excited about Muschamp and so am I, but the guy that I am most excited about having back in Austin is Major Applewhite. I hope he brings fire to the offensive side of the ball and can help McCoy improve more all around.

My concern isn't so much the defense this year. It's on offense. Can someone on the WR corps step up and replace Sweed as the go to guy? Can one of the young backs pick up where Charles left off? Lost a LT in Tony Hills that was a tenured starter. Big questions to me. However they guy left out in this article on the offensive side of the ball that I think will be pressing for more PT is John Chiles. Kid has dynamic athletic ability and if Major can help him bring it all together could be a really fun player to watch.

Overall the schedule this year is a bit weak but UT has a young team that needs to show it can grow before BIG 12 play this year hits. If UT can beat OU and get back to form in beating A&M they could win the south.
