Will they be the run­nin’ Horns?

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Un­less Brown and of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Greg Davis are or­ches­trat­ing the ruse of all ruses, ex­pect Texas to at least par­tially get back to its roots this sea­son with a re­vamped run­ning at­tack.

De­spite the lack of a proven work­horse tail­back — lead­ing can­di­dates to share the ma­jor­ity of car­ries are sopho­more Tré Newton and ju­nior Fozzy Whittaker — the Longhorns want a down­hill rush­ing game to pose a threat to de­fenses. In 2009, Texas man­aged only 147.6 ground yards per game, its low­est av­er­age since 2002.

If Texas is se­ri­ous about re­vamp­ing its run­ning game, sopho­more Tré Newton is a lead­ing can­di­date to be a fea­tured tail­back.
