You've lacked experience and depth the last few years. But shouldn't Texas always be Texas?
If you go back, that happened at Oklahoma, USC, Ohio State, Michigan. For a coach who's at a place for 15 years, it usually happens. You look up and all of a sudden nothing's working, you've lost your swagger. The expectations that are out there, we created. They weren't here when I got here. So I'm proud of those.... It's not like every minute of my day isn't spent trying to get us back and get better. I remember '98.
Are you aware of the "Mack Brown recruited Johnny Manziel as a safety" meme?
We offered David Ash that year, and we're proud of where he is and where he's headed.
Player to Watch
Look for the 5'10", 180-pound sophomore
who clocked a 4.34 40 at a high school combine, to motion in and out of the backfield and break for daylight on speed sweeps and swing passes. He may also return kickoffs. Announcers: It's duh-JAY.
