Don't Mess With the Texas Longhorns

Texas proved it is a force again this season in the Big 12 Conference when the Longhorns beat Kansas in Lawrence Saturday.

Teams don’t go into Allen Fieldhouse and handle the Jayhawks like that. Texas didn’t require late game magic. The Longhorns just took care of business. They simply defeated No. 2 ranked Kansas.

I was thinking that Kansas was far-and-above the best team in the Big 12. Now, Saturday’s result shows the Jayhawks have company. And a loss might be good for Kansas.

But Saturday’s spotlight belongs to the Longhorns. Coach Rick Barnes has produced a solid, consistent program in Austin. That is saying something because basketball is like a stepchild to Texas football.

But if Texas keeps winning games like it did Saturday, maybe Texas football talk will take a back seat for at least a couple weeks. Maybe…
