The quarterback position can often make or break the success of a team, and for the Texas Longhorns, David Ash may be the epitome of that situation this season.
The sophomore signal caller has performed solidly so far this season, but is it enough to project the proper development that can slingshot the Longhorns to a Big 12 title or a BCS appearance?
With the number of playmakers on offense and a defense that should eventually come around into one of the Big 12's best, Ash may not have to win games on his own. Sure, he may very well have to sling the ball in order to secure a couple of victories this season, but with the quality surrounding the quarterback, the Longhorns are far from a one-man show.
With that said, Ash has taken strides from his freshman season that only implicates further development down the road, creating a polarizing buzz around the former Belton standout.
As the most scrutinized position in the game, the quarterback simply holds several keys to success.
So with two games down and ten more to go, and with the season far from over, it is time for a report card for the Longhorns' quarterback.
