First of all, I'll say that I don't think Greg Davis is nearly as large a part of the problem as most seem to think he is, but even so, it's worth asking this: whom would you have the Longhorns hire at OC to replace Davis, were he to leave? A fired offensive-minded head coach like Kragthorpe? A high-performance offense's OC like Dana Holgorson at UH? Promote Major Applewhite?
Really, what are the options at this point? UT can afford whatever it takes, but I'm having a hard time finding a guy who would be a fit for Mack Brown's conservative wishes, yet also has proven to be able to put together consistently-great offenses. So what's the pick?
