In 2010, the Texas football team entered the season fresh off a BCS National Championship appearance, ranked fifth in the country. Led by quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who had an impressive showing against Alabama in the Rose Bowl, the Longhorns appeared primed for another title run. But Texas fell flat on its face, finishing with a 5-7 record and failing to play in a bowl game for the first time in the Mack Brown era. With the Longhorns getting blown out in two straight contests and Big 12 play looming, 2013 is beginning to feel a lot like 2010 — if not worse.
