With the cupcakes out of the way, the Texas Longhorns have some business to take care of as they head to Oxford to take on Bo Wallace and Ole Miss this weekend. They can start by getting some of their emerging and already-emerged talents on the field.
The 'Horns have won their first two games by a combined score of 82-17, but fans are not quite convinced this team is ready to bring the program back to the top. David Ash has not progressed as much as we had hoped, the defense has started slow and there has been some grumbling about offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin's conservative play-calling.
There have been a lot of positives as well. Ash has not turned the ball over in his last three starts, the running backs are as advertised and bookends Jackson Jeffcoat and Alex Okafor have been superhuman. And there are players who have already emerged as potential stars for this program as the season progresses.
Let's have a look at some of the players who established themselves in the first two games and that need to see the field more in the weeks leading up to West Virginia and Oklahoma.
