PLAYERS: David AshCase McCoy
TEAMS: Texas Longhorns
Texas Makes it Official, David Ash is the Starting QBTexas head coach Mack Brown met with the media Wednesday and did what many expected him to do naming sophomore David Ash the starting quarterback.  “They’ve handled the preseason well.  They’re getting along well.  And we are not hesitant to put either one of them in the game, but David will start.” Ash had been competing with junior Case McCoy for the starting job going back to spring practice and was rumored to have a clear leg up on the competition.

When I first heard that the team motto was going to be RISE, I was wondering if they were using this to mean rising up from the ashes or even the dead. Next I thought of a boxing analogy about rising up from the canvas where many of your opponents knocked you out.
