Glimpse Into the Future
Texas' 58-14 win over the Rice Owls on Saturday didn't tell us much about the 2007 Texas Longhorns, but it served as a glimpse into to future.

A Good Warm-up
Griffin looking like the other Griffin, Colt looking like the Colt of old and Texas looking like a complete football team for the first time this season. Inside Texas' Ross Lucksinger gives his observations from Texas' 58-14 win over the Rice Owls.

Four-quarter quality bodes well for Longhorns

UT hopes good game against Rice will carry over into conference play

Horns need Chiles in the game more often
Austin American-Statesman
Look out, Sooners. After a lackluster start through three wins and so many off-the-field problems that even NFL commissioner Roger Goodell may be looking into the Texas program, the Longhorns are back in form after getting their passing game in high gear. I mean, they looked potent and more than ready to take on mighty ...

Longhorns get just what they needed - a blowout
Dallas Morning News
It was the equivalent of a burnt orange day at the spa. The seventh-ranked Longhorns and their fans needed a massage and manicure after three weeks of nail biters at halftime and one too many police blotter headlines. For three-plus hours Saturday night, all was right on the 40 Acres.

UT not ready to surrender to OU
San Antonio Express-News
After months of surrenders, the Longhorns' widely anticipated submission to OU isn't as automatic as some think.

'Horns can breathe easy

Exhale, Texas fans. This will not be a season filled with white-knuckle finishes every week, regardless of the quality of the opponent.

Legal woes begin to tarnish UT's reputation
Houston Chronicle
There have been dark days for coach Mack Brown at Texas, but rarely have they coincided with a 4-0 start and top-10 national ranking.

Chiles turns heads without even making a completed pass
Daily Texan
His first experience was memorable, for both John Chiles and Texas fans.

Chiles' youth only reason to keep him off the playing field
Daily Texan
John Chiles is no Vince Young. But Chiles sees the unavoidable similarities and says he's probably at Texas because of the Tennessee Titans' quarterback who led the Longhorns to a national title in 2005.


Saints beware: Titans' Young ready to deliver
New Orleans Times-Picayune
The more Mack Brown talks, the more you get the feeling every time the Texas football coach looks at that crystal football inside the school's trophy case, Vince Young is smiling back at him. For good reason. The young man who quarterbacked the Longhorns to a BCS national championship on Jan. 4, 2006, is in New Orleans today, trying to spoil the home opener of the Saints (0-2) at the Superdome, which happens to be where Brown coached his final game for Tulane in 1987.

National spotlight suits Young's style
The last time the nation saw Vince Young play in prime time, he was leading the Texas Longhorns to a national championship over the Southern Cal Trojans in January 2006. The last time the Titans were in prime time they were doormats in the AFC South, playing a meaningless game in December 2004 that was largely tuned out by television viewers. So much has changed. Tonight against the Saints (0-2) on Monday Night Football, Young and the Titans (1-1) hope to put on a show that will make a positive impression from coast to coast.
