During Big 12 media days, Texas coach Mack Brown said he hoped to have a starting quarterback chosen by the time this season started.

Barring a preseason camp surprise or major injury, that job is projected to go to David Ash, although there has been a minor setback for the sophomore regarding the latter possibility. first reported that Ash sustained a hamstring injury during Friday workouts. Sean Adams of 104.9 ESPN Austin later reported that the injury, which Texas officially classified as a “strain”, will put Ash on day-to-day status.

The Longhorns report to preseason camp at the end of next week. How healthy Ash will be then remains to be seen, but for now, it’s a minor setback that should keep the competition with Case McCoy going for just a little while longer.

    I bleed orange but both these guys stink. Run the ball and let the monster D take care of the rest.

    Maybe if one of these guys knew they had the job, they would play better. Must be horrible thinking if you make a mistake you will be taken out.

    “This guy” was 4th on the depth chart entering last season as a true freshman. Texas was in the middle of installing a brand new, much more complicated offense. Garret Gilbert and Connor Wood were competing for the starting job. Thus, David Ash got no snaps in the summer and heading into the fall. He was expected to redshirt but an injury to Gilbert and a transfer from Wood suddenly thrusted him into the 2 deep. Ash has since gotten exponentially more snaps with the first team, his understanding of the offense and his confidence have both improved greatly. David doesn’t have to be VY or Colt for this team to be successful. All he has to be is Greg McElroy from 2009 and this team will win 10 games. Minimize turnovers, let the running game and defense do the heavy lifting. So to Longhorn fans that have written this kid off: Get a hold of yourselves. To the perpetual Longhorn haters: Just wait and see.

    all caused by an offense that is far too complex. the coaches need to simplify the offense
