The Texas Longhorns are two games in and have experienced two different results in the new uptempo offense. Major Applewhite's group may not be in as much trouble as the defense, but it has not alleviated any concerns moving forward.
The Longhorns are in full circus mode. Greg Robinson has replaced Manny Diaz as defensive coordinator after last night's drubbing at BYU, and the entire nation is snickering at the Longhorns' prospects for the rest of the season.
Could the Diaz demotion be the spark the program needs? Perhaps on defense, but the offense needs some help of its own. The 'Horns were unable to pull themselves out of a second-straight slow start, and figure to be a feature section of Kyle Van Noy's draft film this spring.
There were still explosive plays, but this was not the offensive machine fans wanted and the team needed to beat the Cougars. Especially with a defense that is still in progress.
But how far has this offense come in the new scheme? The answer will alleviate your concerns for this 2013 season.
