Mack Brown Thinking About Two QB's In 2012

The biggest question hanging over the Texas Longhorns 2012 season is at the QB position. With talent up and down the rest of their roster, the Longhorns just need adequate play from one of their young QB's (David Ash and Case McCoy).

And I do think there will be times this year where we will play both of them, regardless of how we separate it. I don't think it will be like last year. It won't be the last-guy-standing type thing. But I do think that there will be times where both of them can help us in a ballgame. We really haven't talked about it enough because we thought they might separate themselves, and I'm sure they still might.

The two-QB system can work if they have radically different skill-sets (like Landry Jones and Blake Bell at OU), but it's not as if either Ash or McCoy tore it up as a Wildcat QB last year.

With the season less than a month away, the Longhorns are going to have to figure out something behind center. As the old saying goes, if you have two QB's, you really have none.
