Six games down, six games to go for the Texas Longhorns. Sitting at a strange 4-2 mark, their 2013 season is certainly shaping up as one of the more interesting campaigns in the country.
If you told a Longhorn fan Texas would start 4-2 and be happy about it, he or she would probably smack you—especially when you said that Mack Brown would still be the head coach through it all.
It is, in fact, the current situation in Austin. It has taken a midseason firing and an upset win over Oklahoma, but Texas is 4-2 and happy about it. If the Longhorns win out, they win the Big 12.
Granted, there is a lot of football to be played before those hopes can be realized, though it is definitely one of the more peculiar storylines in this wild college football season.
That said, it is fitting that the team's best players and coaching performances have been every bit as unique.
