Quarterback David Ash appears to finally be over his concussion but is far from being game ready--and it looks like he might not play again anyway. @HornsIllus/Twitter The Texas Longhorns were looking for big things out of quarterback David Ash this season. Instead he and the team struggled going 1-2 before he received a concussion against Kansas State. Ash has missed the last three games and will not play against Kansas. Word is that he is no longer feeling the effects of the concussion he received against the Wildcats back on September 21, but it doesn't look like he is going to be playing anytime soon (or possibly at all). Ash's head has been deemed ready to go, but it appears that the rest of him may not be now. In the time that he has been injured he has managed to put on 10 pounds and is no longer in game shape. However, even if he was cleared to play (which he hasn't been) it does not seem as if Mack Brown is looking to play him... ...to r...

Mack Brown On Big 12: “Everybody Is About To Start Running Into Each Other”

Five weeks ago, Texas fans weren’t very happy with head coach Mack Brown. The Longhorns were 1-2 on the season after losses to BYU and Ole Miss, and there weren’t many reasons to think the team would turn things around in conference play. But here we are over a month later, with Texas 4-0 in conference play and playing its best football of the season. And Mack Brown loves his...

Mack Brown is quietly saving his job

It got so bad, so quickly, that Mack Brown turned to a guy watching tape on his couch in California. He had little choice, of course. After BYU embarrassed Texas in Week 2, beating the Longhorns 40-21 and rushing for 550 yards, the roar of regents and 'Horns supporters climbed to such audible levels that Brown had to do something . So out went defensive coordinator Manny Diaz...

After slow Texas decline, Barnes' future uncertain

The Texas Longhorns have been in a long, steady decline. And given the player exodus since last season, coach Rick Barnes is under increasing pressure to make a quick turnaround. For more than a decade, Barnes pushed the Texas program to new heights: A Final Four appearance, the first No. 1 ranking in school history and two Longhorns, T.J. Ford and Kevin Durant, earned national...

WTH Moments – Texas at TCU

WTH?! (What the Heck?) moments are attempts to find the memorable and the off-beat perspective on Longhorns sports. Here are some interesting moments from Texas’ Thursday night game against Texas Christian. 1st Quarter (15:00) WTH Band-Aid?! I like many of the special helmets that college teams are sporting. The TCU helmet baffles me because the blood spurt/stripe depicts a...

Struggling Kansas next up for rejuvenated Texas

The Texas Longhorns are on a roll, with four straight wins that have sent them to a share of the lead in the Big 12. Up next? Kansas, a program that has lost 25 consecutive league games and has shown no sign that streak will end Saturday in Austin. But dial back the calendar to 2012 and the Longhorns will remember a game the Jayhawks could have - and probably should have - won....

Big 12 storylines: Week 10

Here's what I'm keeping an eye on this week across the Big 12. Are you in or are you out? Oklahoma State's been up and down all year, looking dominant late in games against Iowa State and Mississippi State, but suffering an ugly loss on the road at West Virginia. The Cowboys haven't done much to prove themselves in Big 12 play yet, though, and are a step behind...

Coming out of the Iowa State game, the Longhorns were still largely operating an offense designed for original starting quarterback David Ash. But with Ash's injury, the Longhorns have made some changes that have helped out new starter Case McCoy.
