Mack Brown said during Big 12 media days that he expected one quarterback, David Ash or Case McCoy, to emerge as the frontrunner during fall practices.
That’s still a possibility — Brown has said next to nothing about the competition since then and hookem.com is reporting Ash will get the start — but it’s looking more and more like the two will continue to split time in the Longhorns’ season-opener against Wyoming.
“We want both guys to play,” offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin said. “There’s strengths and weaknesses with both guys.”
Statistically speaking, both were average in 2011. Ash looked like he was gaining traction on the starting job after the Holiday Bowl and through spring practices. He’s also been the media favorite to win the job. If he has, Brown and Harsin aren’t giving that away yet.
And the most-watched (also, frustrating) QB competition in college football will keep on going.
