Are the Longhorns Finally Back?

It’s been a few years since Texas has had any national significance. Let’s face it: the rebuilding process that started after the team went to the national championship in 2010 has been a long one. But Saturday night as they played in Stillwater against defending Big XII Champion Oklahoma State, the Horns definitely looked better than they had in a long time. Sophomore quarterback David Ash looked impressive with 30/37 for 304 yards and 3 TDs, defeating an Oklahoma State team that looked to pick up where it left off after winning the Fiesta Bowl last year. With a more mature Ash at the helm and weapons like Shipley and Brown, Texas is in control of its own destiny. If they can get past the next two hurdles in West Virginia and their Red River Rivals, their next test likely won’t come until the last couple weeks of the season when they play TCU and KSU in Manhattan. The one thing that is certain is the Longhorns are definitely a team to watch this season, and are well on their way to the top again. So what does all this mean for OU? Well, having already been dealt their first loss, a struggling Oklahoma squad doesn't have an easy road, especially given performances by WVU, Oklahoma State, and Texas this weekend. It's clear at this point that OU ISN'T the best team in the conference, but by all accounts they SHOULD be. They have a senior quarterback who last week at times, played like an inexperienced freshman, a decent group of receivers, and a defense that's still working out a few flaws, but has definitely looked better than last season. If OU doesn't pull it together, fans certainly need to prepare themselves for losses at the hands of UT, TCU, WVU and OK State. Something's gotta give, or it's gonna get ugly.
