I guess we should credit 247's Texas affiliate Hookem.com with "breaking" the news that David Ash will take the first snap for the Longhorns on Sept. 1 versus Wyoming.
Under journalism’s rules of the road, it probably does qualify as a scoop. Yet, no one who has followed UT closely since last December has assumed any differently. Ash played every offensive down in Texas' 21-10 holiday bowl win over California, and just about anyone who covers the program has pegged the sophomore as the man since then.

We still don’t know the answer to that, but if they played today, Texas is apparently set to play both David Ash and Case McCoy who have been battling for the starting job throughout the spring and into fall camp. "Right now obviously one guy is going to have to roll out...
Sophomore David Ash will be the starting quarterback when Texas opens the season against Wyoming on Sept. 1, coach Mack Brown announced on Wednesday, but Brown added that junior Case McCoy also will see playing time.
Ash and McCoy both saw playing time last season and have been in a head-to-head battle since spring practice.
"Both quarterbacks are good enough to play, and...
I massively struggled with where to put Texas this season. I have doubts that they should be ranked at all. Mack Brown is entering a season where he will decidedly be put on the hot seat should he not succeed, and by succeed I mean win at least eight games.
The one thing about the Longhorns that I don’t have doubts about is their defense. Behind the coaching of Manny Diaz...
