The Longhorns Celebrate the 2009 Big 12 Championship

Really, it’s amazing that just three years removed from playing in the BCS title game that it would be somewhat of a brazen prediction to proclaim, “The Longhorns will win the Big 12 in 2013!”

But, the truth is since 2009 when Texas went 13-0 only to get beat 37-21 by Alabama in the BCS championship it’s been, well, it’s all been downhill.

How bad has it been?

The Longhorns are 22-16 since that night and perhaps even more telling is the fact that they haven’t finished better than a tie for second in a Big 12 race that continues to shrink before our very eyes.

So, with Mack Brown straddling the line with one foot out the door and hope diminishing rather than the burnt orange sun rising, how does Texas recapture the dominance it once enjoyed and win the conference in 2013?

The following slideshow makes a very strong case for why the Longhorns absolutely should win the Big 12, and perhaps more, this upcoming season.
