Rick Barnes and the Texas Longhorns sure are ready for a fresh start, and they have the team to do just that. 

Expectations weren't all that high for Barnes's squad last season, but after a first-round (OK, technically second, now) exit and 14 losses, which is the most the veteran head coach has ever had at Texas, it became time for a reboot in Austin. 

Well, how's this for a reboot?

Leading scorer—by a lot—J'Covan Brown is gone. Role playing seniors Clint Chapman and Alexis Wangmene are gone. Six freshmen, which make up the No. 4 class in the country, are here. Five freshmen from last season have returned.

And that's it.

The Longhorns are about to take on the best in the nation with all underclassmen, but considering they're ranked No. 24 in the Coaches Poll, the young guns apparently bring with them a little bit of talent, too.

Let's take a look at what's in store for Texas in 2012-13.
