In what can only be considered a sign of respect for the program and the available talent for Texas, the coaches voted the Longhorns into the top 25 of the preseason Coaches Poll, sliding in at no. 24 despite the terrible 2010 season.
As expected, the powerful Sooners are no. 1, with Oklahoma State at no. 8 and Texas A&M no. 9. Missouri landed at no. 21.
After 5-7, do the Longhorns really deserve a preseason top 25 ranking?
