Practice has officially picked up for the Texas Longhorns as they gear up for this highly anticipated 2012 season. The only problem is there is still a large elephant lingering in the room regarding who should be the starting quarterback: David Ash or Case McCoy.
Ash was not stellar last season in his rookie campaign, committing nine turnovers against only four touchdowns. However, Ash showed some serious potential in his very controlled performance in the Holiday Bowl victory over Cal and has done nothing but reinforce that notion ever since.
Based on his performance both in the Cal game and the offseason, Ash is the favorite to beat out junior Case McCoy for the full-time starting job come September 1. Here are the arguments both for and against Ash being the team's No. 1 signal-caller.
