Once Again, the Big One Got Away

AUSTIN, Texas -- The long wait, the one that has lasted for more than two years, continues for Texas. The No. 11 Longhorns (4-1, 1-1) are not back. Not yet. Not after getting beat by a conference newcomer and national-stage neophyte, No. 8 West Virginia (5-0, 2-0), 48-45 in front of the largest crowd ever -- 101,851 -- at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium Saturday night. Oh sure, the Mountaineers have Heisman frontrunner Geno Smith, a coach that goes with every wild hair he has on his head, and speed and swagger.
