With the Red River Rivalry looming, Mack Brown has a long to-do list for his Texas Longhorns. First up will be sorting out his quarterback situation.
Every game left on the schedule is a must-win for Brown and his team. Their Big 12 hopes likely evaporate with a loss to the Sooners, and Brown will be facing unemployment if there is another blowout.
Unfortunately, the embattled head coach is facing another uphill battle. Starting quarterback David Ash is in doubt after suffering another head injury, top linebacker Jordan Hicks is gone for the season and the entire team has performed below its talent level.
There is a lot that needs fixing, but Brown has the time to do it with nine days between this week's matchup with Iowa State and the team's game of the year.
The real question is whether he will get his Longhorns back on the rails. He had better, because this game, and his job, depend on it.
