"But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth."
In an unfortunate retreat from the status quo, Bill McRaven's 2015 Longhorn Football Team opened their season behind Bill Powers' 2014 counterpart.
In Bill Powers' final season as President of UT-Austin, the Longhorns closed by losing to TCU 48-10 and Arkansas 31-7; in the first game of Bill McRaven's tenure as Chancellor, they lost to Notre Dame 38-3.
Bill McRaven's Longhorns were unable to execute on offense. Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, whom Longhorn fans assumed had transferred to clown college in the off-season, illustrated little growth in his regrettable performance. The only thing worse than Swoopes' failure was the play of second-string quarterback Jerrod Heard.
Longhorn fans will have to get used to the fact that we lack a decent quarterback.
But the really painful part is that OUR DEFENSE SUCKS. Last year, not that it meant much, Mack Brown recruits like Quandre Diggs, Jordan Hicks, and Malcolm Brown kept us in games. This year, they've graduated to the NFL.
In 2015, Longhorn Football is stuck between Mack Brown's last successful draft class and the hope that Charlie Strong might eventually become mediocre.
Bottom Line: Bill McRaven said he would turn around the University of Texas. So far, he's begotten incompetence and mediocrity. Cahnman's Musings hopes Bill McRaven will find a quarterback with sufficient connections in the Texas Legislature to actually make it through the corrupt University of Texas admission process.
