The Texas Longhorns’ expected standard in 2023 is increasingly set.
“Well I was listening to you misconceptions show from earlier in the week, J.D., and I’ve gotta take issue with one of the things you said. You said if Texas doesn’t have a great, double-digit win season, then it’s still OK. It is not OK. They’re going to be favored in 11 of 12 games. Like they should be dominant this season. They should be very good. They should win the Big 12 this season. If they don’t, you’ve got a problem. If they lose to Oklahoma, you’ve got a problem. Because right now, they’re in a better talent-wise, relative to Oklahoma, than they’ve been in years,” On3 analyst Andy Staples said, per Inside Texas.
Staples continued, “It’s a failure if they don’t win the Big 12. They’re the best team on paper. They should win the league. If you don’t do that, you didn’t reach your potential.”
Go big or go home, in other words.
