What a difference a week makes. After the Longhornsâ€™ season-opening, lopsided victory over the Mean Green, it appeared that the culture surrounding the Texas football program had finally begun to change. The team came out tough. No longer were the players talking the talk, they were proving it on the field and seemingly couldnâ€™t wait to redeem themselves against BYU. It was expected that this season, the new and improved Longhorns led by Charlie Strong and his staff, would be seeking retribution for last seasonâ€™s debacle against the Cougars.
However, if possible, this yearâ€™s match-up proved to be even worse for Texas. While things looked so promising for this program a week ago, worry and doubt is starting to seep into the minds of the fans.
Immediately following the 41-7 beat down from the Cougars, the third worst home loss in the programâ€™s history, fans began placing blame on anyone and everyone. Many argued that Mack Brown is still to blame for leaving the program in shambles; others believed that Strong, as the current coach, is the one responsible. Regardless of where the blame lies, itâ€™s time to take a step back and look at things a bit more rationally.
