Texas won easily despite missing some starters: Texas has an energetic head coach, fired up players and an a fan base ready to win.

It’s just the beginning: Texas has a 2-0 start.

Texas is back: Shane Buechele is channeling Colt McCoy and Texas is spreading the ball around.

Texas is playing Strong defense: Last night’s game was one of the best defensive performances under Charlie Strong.

The team didn’t play consistently, but a win is a win: Sterlin Gilbert and the offense has scored 91 points in the first two games.

So many receivers, too few thrown balls: “Really, I haven’t (had this many weapons),” Strong said. “It’s been fun to watch it. And we’re only going to get better, and the quarterback is throwing the ball well.” Charlie Strong

Jerrod Heard is getting this wide receiver thing down: Heard hauled in six catches in the 41-7 win over UTEP.

Thanks, Kirk: AAS writer Kirk Bohls has Texas at #12 on the AP ballot.

It seems a little early to be talking playoffs: Is Texas the conference’s last hope for a playoff spot?

Too bad this didn’t happen last season: Big 12 and MAC crews were suspended after the OSU-Central Michigan ending.
