Texas Longhorns Football: Better Than the Experts Think

If you are a Texas football fan and you are having doubts about this upcoming season, no need to worry. Don't let all of the hype about Oklahoma and Missouri get you down.

Texas will have a great season and let me tell you why. Two words: Will Muschamp.

Muschamp is the second Auburn defensive coordinator Texas has hired in the last four years, the last one was current Iowa State coach Gene Chizik. Look for him to fix a secondary that finished 107th passing yards given up last season.

If you're worried about the running back situation, don't be. Sophomore Vondrell McGee, who is currently slated to take the starting job, was Texas' go-to man in the red zone last year. He accounted for eight touchdowns last season and should do it again. Also, expect to see Forest Whittaker get some carries too on key 3rd downs.

Expect to see Colt McCoy have a breakout year. Coming off a 21 touchdown, 18 interception campaign last year, McCoy has spent the off season working on fixing his Sophomore slump. However, don't be surprised if John Chiles comes in and takes a few snaps. Expect him to pass this season instead of him just running the ball like he did last year.

Mack Brown should work them hard this off season and use more discipline then he has in the past few years. So, don't be surprised if Texas takes home Mack's second Big 12 conference title in 2008.
