Longhorns DO or they DO NOT...There is no TRY!
Anyone knows who the guy that is going to lead the rest of the team to buy in? Who is the leader of this team? I still don't have a grasp of who it is. Who is the guy that has every teammate's cell phone and calls them for workouts, etc. I understand the coaches are a big part of this. However, that one individual player can set a precedence to all. Anyone have a clue on the D or O side that sticks out? Grey on O? Diggs, maybe on D, if he becomes a Safety? Its fustrating to me that we are still guessing who this guy/s is/are.
The sadest thing about my respond is that we rely on a player/s to take over. Who is The guy at Alabama? There isn't one. Its Saban who is the guy at Alabama. Damn it Mack be a leader for once. I'm just not seeing anything diferent happening in 2013. FUDGE!
Sorry for the rant!

I know this won't happen because Mack is a feel good guy, but isn't it time to take the names off the uniforms and make the guys earn them back?
Hell, if they continue the current trend, I would consinder taking the horns off the helmets.
See what it feels like to be nameless and look like Penn State.
If we want to get back in the title game we need bigger faster stronger and better players. Genius
Getting back to where we want starts along the OL and front 7. We need guys to get stronger, faster and more physical. We need that all over, but especially up front on both sides.
As far as leadership the guys I can think of are Diggs, Jeffcoat, Reed, Jackson(both), Brown maybe some others on defense. On offense: no idea. Doesn't seem like we have a lot of vocal guys on that side. Think its time for Ash to step up. With Case likely gone there won't be a competing voice on that side of the ball.
