The 2013 Texas Longhorns linebacking corps will be closely watched after a 2012 that tested the patience of fans and coaches. On paper, this unit is as talented as it gets. We all know that talent can only take you so far. Last year, they struggled with consistency and gave up some big plays.
Some have blamed coaching, poor technique and gap control. Everyone has an opinion. However, one thing that we can all agree on is that for the Mack Brown to lead the Longhorns back to greatness, Texas is going to need big plays out of their defense, and that starts with the linebackers.
