AUSTIN, Texas – Defense, or more notably Texas’ lack of it, is on the minds of everyone who’s interested in the 15th-ranked Longhorns these days – and rightfully so.

Texas head coach Tom Herman addressed the topic of defense – to wit the more than 569 yards and 48 points that his team allowed in a 50-48 win over Kansas Oct. 19 – aplenty on Monday during his media availability, taking question after question about what’s going wrong on that side of the ball and how to fix it.
