Texas Longhorns struggling mightily on special teams

For the coverage and return units, those are typically the factors most associated with success on special teams and the Texas Longhorns haven't been finding much success in any of those facets through two games, all while the specialists also struggle. In the past, former head coach Mack Brown split up special teams duties among several coaches, but with the staff featuring a head coach and defensive coordinator who have both coached defensive backs during their respective careers, the job of special teams coach on the new staff fell to defensive backs coach Chris Vaughn .

Uncomfortable realities emerge about the Texas Longhorns offense

In possessing the ball for less than 26 minutes against BYU and racking up only 258 total yards, the new Texas Longhorns offense often looked broken or at least completely unthreatening. Down three starters along the offensive line, with limited depth at tackle, wide receiver, and running back thanks to dismissals and suspensions, without the team's best and most experienced quarterback, play caller Shawn Watson is operating with a roster that looks entirely different from what he expected when he arrived in January.
