Does The Defending Champions Texas Have A Shot?

The Texas Longhorns are the defending National Champions and are looking to repeat and keep the trophy in Austin Texas. The hardest thing the Longhorns will have to adjust to is life after Vince Young. Young saved the Longhorns countless times last year and they don't have another Vince Young in the stables.

Now don't get me wrong the Longhorns are still loaded and favored to win the Big 12 championship again this year. They are in the same boat the U.S.C. Trojans are teams are creeping up on them and it won't be as easy as it was in the past. Teams like Oklahoma and Nebraska would like to claim that top spot again in the Big 12.

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy looks like the likely favorite to start at quarterback and he could feel alot of pressure to perform early. The Longhorns will have a tough game when Ohio State invades Austin in September. McCoy will have to play a great game, until McCoy can get into a flow a defense that is still very good will have to carry the Longhorns. I see the Longhorns winning another Big 12 Championship but a National Championship isn't in the cards this year.
