Great quarterbacks back great leaders and the jury certainly remains out on both counts when it comes to Texas Longhorns quarterback Tyrone Swoopes.Tabbed to start the Longhorns' embarrassing season-opening loss at Notre Dame, and now potentially taking a backseat to backup Jerrod Heard against Rice on Saturday, Swoopes was asked if the Texas offense can right itself for the Owls...
