Each day, as a countdown to fall camp opening on Aug. 2, we are going to provide you with a number that was important in 2011 and let you know why it will be important in 2012.

Inside the number
Texas had 53 kick returns last season and two of them were extremely memorable.
In back-to-back games, Fozzy Whittaker went the distance with kick returns to score two of Texas’ 44 touchdowns in 2011. Those returns helped Texas rank 20th nationally in kick return average with 24.08 yards per return. But the issue for Texas is that beyond those two returns, Texas was average at best when it came to returning kicks. In fact, take those two 100-yard returns away and Texas averaged 20.9 yards per return which would have been 90th in FBS.
