AUSTIN, Texas -- Whether or not Mack Brown believes it, the Texas Longhorns coach has continued to pound home the questionable point that his defense improved in the latter half of the 2012 season.

Sure, that theory is plausible if one looks past the second half of the Kansas State game, the first half of the Oregon State game, and that 109-yard drive allowed to open the TCU game. (The Horned Frogs overcame a 15-yard penalty with a midseason replacement redshirt freshman quarterback on the aforementioned drive.)
