I've followed Texas more closely the last couple years due to developing a friendship with a neighbor who moved here from Austin. I certainly wouldn't declare this year the final word on Strong but it was not an auspicious start. Their defense looked like it could be moving toward becoming a great unit but wasn't that great yet. The offense was an identity-less mess run by a QB who played about as tentatively as I've ever seen a QB play. And the cupboard certainly wasn't left bare by Mack.
