They're back, the horns got a class of players in place this year to make a serious run at the BCS and possibly even a national title if all the pieces fell in the right place. A new up tempo style of offense, a big 12 conference that's ripe for their taking, Texas will once again be the talk of the college football world

Mack Brown better hope so, because I'm thinking he needs at least nine, but probably 10 wins to keep his job.

The team is perfectly capable of 11 wins, could bet my whole 401K on that one

Who knew! Never expected a horns thread up on here. Big Longhorns fan here!

Expecting big things from Johnathan Gray. Other than that I haven't really been following the Horns offseason too much. Any good freshmen to look out for? Whos got the inside track for Starting QB? Ash?

Ash would be the clear cut starter at this point, more so than Case, and there is 1 freshman QB you may wanna keep an eye on who I'd imagine gets brought in for specialized situations, Tyrone Swoopes, he's a bit different than Vince Young in his style but he's got speed for some read option type plays.

Also I think they're gonna use sophomore Duke Thomas who even though his position's supposed to be on defense he's gonna be seeing snaps on offense this year it's looking like.

Got a much more up tempo game approach this year and it's to hopefully keep the pedal to the metal on the opponents.

Well, horns season starts up next weekend. Should be a nice distraction from this bomber chaos.

56-7, slow start but a strong finish for the Horns against New Mexico State. David Ash finally caught fire in the 2nd half and Mike Davis with a highlight reel catch to cap it off.

We go to Provo, Utah next week and take on BYU, should be another winnable game.

Well, not a bcs title run anymore but we could still get into a BCS bowl game if we win the big 12, which actually may be more doable now than it was when we skunked up against BYU earlier on this year. That was a huge win in the Red River Rivalry 2 weeks ago, and now we got TCU this weekend.
