AUSTIN, Texas -- Back in Texas’ halcyon days, when everything was fast, furious and -- here is the big one -- successful, the Longhorns averaged 74.5 plays per game.

Back then (2007-09) the Longhorns had the talent to fit the scheme, the quarterback who understood the urgency and accuracy, and the experience of having been in an up-tempo system for several years.

What Texas has now is the hope that it can surpass what it once did when it was at its best. Coach Mack Brown’s pie-in-the-sky goal is to average 84 plays a game. Now he and Texas have to make sure it doesn’t end up as a pie-in-the-face goal.
