Texas Longhorns

Kirk Bohls of the Austin-American Statesman writes about the Texas coaching staff drafting the best 24 players on offense and 22 on defense after their Monday night scrimmage on the 40 acres. Bohls talks about the likelihood of QB’s David Ash or Case McCoy among the top 5 on offense. I would take top 20 for either one of them if I was a Horns fan.

“On the heels of the team’s first full-scale scrimmage Monday night, the head coach said he asked his staff to draft the top 24 players on offense and the best 22 on defense.

Sadly, Mack declined to reveal any of the picks. No word on Mr. Irrelevant either.

We’re all just praying it wasn’t David Ash or Case McCoy, but it would be surprising if either Longhorn quarterback ranked in anyone’s top five. Mack made it clear Tuesday that there remains no separation between the two.

That’s either a scary situation, given their erratic play last season, or a comforting realization that both have raised the level of their games. Friendly eyeballs suggest modest improvement.”

West Virginia Mountaineers

Sports Illustrated previews WVU as they are No. 10 nationally in their poll. One of the tasks for the Big 12 newcomers will be adapting from a 3-3-5 defense to a 3-4 defense, but the addition of former Oklahoma State assistant Joe DeForest to run the D. The Mountaineers will be able to score points, but can they adapt to the fast pace every week? Read the story here.
