Insider's take on spring QB battles

4/27/2012

College football Insider Travis Haney broke down some of the still undecided QB battles that remain after spring football. Among them Oklahoma State, Florida, Stanford and, of course, Texas.

Here is what Haney had to say about the Longhorns' QB race:

Second-year coordinator Bryan Harsin is a pretty close-to-the-vest sort of guy, and he isn't saying much this spring to indicate who has the lead between returning co-starters David Ash and Case McCoy. Every indication around Austin, even during last season, was that Ash gave the Horns the better chance to win in the long term. He has the better physical skill set, but he sometimes made it impossible to play him, as evidenced by his 4-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

More than one coach in the Big 12 said that if McCoy is playing extensively this fall for Texas, the Longhorns could have a tough time competing for the league title. And that sounds similar to last season, really. Harsin said both quarterbacks were vastly improved this spring, relative to last fall, but how will that look on the field in September?
