Texas Longhorns on the Verge of Becoming the Real Life Texas State Armadillos?

The comparison is not a literal one of course. The Longhorns fall is not because of NCAA violations and they are not fielding a team of walk-ons because they have no other choice. They aren't recruiting really old quarterbacks--just guys that play intramurals--or people teaching class that happen to have a year or eligibility left or anything.But they are coming pretty darn close...
