The Horns are still working on offense.
Offensive coordinator Greg Davis expressed frustration with too many tipped passes, too many assignment busts in the offensive line and too much ineffectiveness in a ground game that managed just 2.2 yards per carry in last week's 24-14 victory over Texas Tech.
"In fairness, I would have thought we'd have had them worked out by the third week. And we haven't," Davis said.
"It's my fault. And we've got to get them cleaned up."
No. 7 Texas ran for just 93 yards on 43 carries and gave up its first three sacks of the season in a 24-14 win at Texas Tech last week. Television cameras caught Brown chewing out McWhorter on the sideline.
When Brown said earlier this week the discussion was private, it sparked speculation that McWhorter could be fired.
Brown dismissed the rumors as "unfair" to McWhorter and the rest of the coaching staff.
"I make those decisions. Media and fans do not," Brown said.
Kirk Bohls thinks McWhorter might on Brown's hit list.
The Texas offensive line coach has underperformed in getting the most out of his players during the last two years, and again through three games this season.
It is true that he should be cut a little slack because of the loss of three line starters and the drastic change in offensive philosophy from the true spread formation to the balanced attack. But Texas has recruited some of the best offensive linemen in the state with very few positive results to show for it.
A bad trip down memory lane. Barking Carnival remembers that game.
There was some good from that hideous Bruin beating.

The Sooners do not like all that noise at opponent's stadiums.
The Sooners outscored opponents 276-47 in six home victories last season, notching three shutouts and scoring at least 27 points in each game. They didn't score half that many in four of their five losses away from home, where they averaged about two extra turnovers.
"You get out there and the crowd starts yelling," offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said. "Do you lose your edge or do you feed off the energy of the opposing crowd to have the energy that we have at home? Can we have that kind of energy on the road?"
At home, Oklahoma's players are used to feeding off the 80,000-plus fans that have sold out all 71 games since Stoops took over in 1999. On the road, it's more about playing the role of the antagonist and getting excited about plays that silence the opponent's fans.
Coaching is a heart attack waiting to happen.
"I don't know of any other job that's as stressful as this one, especially with the changes over the last 10-15 years with year-round attention and recruiting,'' Tuberville said on Tuesday. "That's become one thing that's made it just as stressful -- the competition (of recruiting).
"But the big thing is how much you travel. When you travel you never eat well, so you';re kind of like a junk food junkie. You eat out and you don't eat smart, you build the stress on top of it, and you have 80-90 hour work weeks. It's a heart attack waiting to happen.''
Poor Aggies. So much for that
extortion big payout for staying in the Big 12-2.
The remaining Big 12 schools will divide the $16 million from Colorado and Nebraska with a formula to be determined, Beebe said.
While the $16 million is significantly less in early-exit penalties than the $30 million originally projected, the settlements avoid legal action.
That Oklahoma mom is not going to be happy about this...
