AUSTIN, Texas -- The offseason, especially around Texas these past few years, is typically fraught with worry, speculation and maybe even a smidge of hope.
Everyone wants to know what will happen come fall. No one, despite consultations with tea leaves, crystal balls, the ghost of Madam Hipple, the endless blogs at every corner of the Internet and preseason magazines, ever really does.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t signs or clues of what could happen. History is kind that way, leaving behind a trail that could help tell a future tale.
