While many of the most recent rumblings from the Texas football scrimmages had David Ash and Case McCoy splitting time as the first-team QB position, it appears that the Longhorns have made up their mind in what hasn't exactly been one of the fiercest position battles in recent memory:â†µ

McCoy's unlikely heroics in Texas final game against Texas A&M will always be remembered fondly, but Ash clearly had the edge going into the 2012 season.â†µ
Not only is he a year younger, but he is significantly bigger and faster and he has a much stronger arm. Case may ultimately be a smaller and weaker-armed version of his older brother, which probably isn't enough to be successful at the level Mack Brown has become accustomed too.â†µ
However, if Ash struggles out of the gate, there's definitely a chance McCoy sees the field in 2012.
