life goes on with­out No. 12

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Can the sec­ondary, which ranked sec­ond in the Big 12 in 2009 in pass de­fense, be even bet­ter de­spite the loss of con­sen­sus All-Amer­i­can safety Earl Thomas? Don’t bet against it.

Brown and de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Will Muschamp def­i­nitely like this group.

‘We feel re­ally good about our sec­ondary,’ Brown said in the spring. ‘We’ve prob­a­bly got three start­ing cor­ners.’ Those would be Aaron Wil­liams, Cur­tis Brown and Chykie Brown.

Texas also has four safeties ca­pa­ble of start­ing — Chris­tian Scott, Blake Gideon, Nolan Brew­ster and Kenny Vac­caro.
