Surprises can go both ways, and for the Texas Longhorns, they have experienced either side of that coin through four weeks of the 2013 season: a rash of injuries, glimpses of good, balanced attack, awful defensive efforts.
On the personnel front, Texas has also seen the good and bad. Some have been marginally good or bad, but others have gotten themselves farther away on the spectrum.
With a 2-2 mark on the season and 1-0 in the Big 12, the start was fresh and positive after a somewhat unconvincing win against Kansas State. But with plenty of good players across the board, the ball will have to start rolling on both sides if Texas is to realize its goals.
