Texas still a long way from what it used to be

It’s nice to see Texas win a game — a bowl game — but it shows how far they are since the days when they were a top team. They are bragging about a season in which they lost six games and had top players who wouldn’t even play in the bowl game. I’ll bet Nobis played in his bowl game despite having a pro career waiting.

They may be better in the next few years, but silly stuff about water bottles is not going to make them a winner. At times the defense, especially Poona Ford, was great, but a long way to go to what Texas once was. At least the effort was there in the bowl game.
