Well, it’s officially started.
The Texas Longhorns are back. No, seriously. Really this time.
Forget the continued QB issues, the flip-flopping of offenses and the lack of production over the past three years, the nation’s media will again trumpet the return of the Horns. It’s happened already at ESPN.com, where Texas is the pick for No. 1 in the Big 12 by Brian Fremeau.
OK, so we can’t expect the Horns to stay down forever. At least I don’t think we can, although the Longhorn Network is beginning to look like some sort of curse, with all of UT’s major sports in major decline. Still, the decline is real, very real, although the national types just can’t come to grips with it.
Expect to see Texas hailed and praised regularly in the months leading into the 2013 season.
Do note, however, that ESPN’s David Ubben, who writes a devoted Big 12 blog, is picking OSU.
In its early national rankings, ESPN also has Texas leading the way from the Big 12, at No. 13, starting a flood of teams from the conference, with the Cowboys at No. 15, OU No. 17, TCU No. 18 and K-State at 20.
