Granted, this may not seem like a ridiculous amount of total yards to allow in the air, but I am sure Texas head coach Mack Brown expects more from the Horns’ secondary.
In fact, the Longhorns defense—except for a few highlight-reel stops—looked out of sync throughout the entire matchup with the Red Raiders.
And if Texas plans on remaining high in the polls with a shaky offensive system and a defense that appears to be weaker than expected, the Horns coaching staff better come up with a solution—and fast—if the team hopes to make a run this season.
Is it too late for the Longhorns to fix the blemishes and make some noise on the 2010 NCAA gridiron?
Absolutely not; but Texas has problems they must address—and correct—as soon as possible.
