Pre-season camp begins August 9 for a highly-ranked Texas football team that sees defensive improvement as key to grabbing that elusive championship. Just before the summer break, Co-Defensive Coordinator <B>Greg Robinson </B>wanted to make one lasting impression to motivate his unit through the off-season and on into two-a-days. He did it by showing a video clip from his Kansas City NFL playoff loss to Indianapolis last January in which Robinson's defense never forced a punt.

This probably passed beneath the radar screen for most Orangebloods, but buried deep in a recent <I>Sporting News </I>column was writer Tom Dienhart's assessment that one of the "major coaching changes" during the off-season that people "might have missed" was <B>Mack Brown's </B>hiring of <B>Greg Robinson </B>as his Co-Defensive Coordinator. Question is: is this change a good thing?

<B>Greg Robinson</B> was hired in January as the Co-Defensive Coordinator and linebackers coach at Texas. His 14 years of NFL experience included directing the defenses at Kansas City (2001-03) and at Denver. During six seasons with the Broncos, Robinson's squad posted three Top 10 finishes in total defense. His run defense also registered three Top 10 finishes, including an NFL best 83.2 ypg in 1997. Not coincidentally, that year was the first of consecutive Super Bowl championships for Denver.
