The Eyes of Texas 2007: An Annual Guide to Texas Longhorns Footballby Peter Bean
Summers in Texas are brutal, but it's not the heat it's the wait. Though another football season is but a few short months away, Longhorns fans continue to mark the time like inmates nearing parole. The Eyes Of Texas 2007 is a pardon from the pain of another insufferable offseason for born and bred Longhorn fans desperate for a glimpse of what redemption awaits them on the other side of August. With 112 pages of commentary, analysis, and statistics complete with gripping color photographs Geoff Ketchum, Chip Brown, and a host of your favorite Longhorn analysts have been working overtime to put together all the information you need to prepare you for one of the most exciting Longhorn football teams of all time.
After Texas' national championship season in 2005, the Longhorns reloaded their offense behind a tough, young quarterback from small town Texas who showed that he's capable in his own way of bringing Texas back to the top of the football mountaintop. Now Colt McCoy's primed for his sophomore encore, and he'll direct an offense loaded with talent that will set the standard in the Big 12. The Eyes of Texas will bring you up to speed on all the key returnees, as well as some new faces you'll need to know on both sides of the ball.
Along with the most comprehensive Longhorn roster breakdown ever published, this annual includes essays on a host of topics that Longhorn diehards will quickly file as must-reads. The most preeminent Texas analysts in the country have joined together to present essays on topics ranging from a review of the defensive coordinators during the Mack Brown era to an analysis of the 1969 and 2005 Longhorn football teams' place in UT history. Geoff Ketchum provides a study of Mack Brown's early recruiting strategy for a unique analysis of one of the greatest recruiters of all time, while Chip Brown reviews the 2006 season and takes a look at McCoy's freshman debut and where it stands among the great seasons in Longhorn history. Other essays include a piece on the unique Texas-Texas A&M rivalry, a study on what it takes to reach the BCS title game in today's day and age, and a review of former Longhorns currently in the National Football League.
Analysis, information, stats, pictures, and history The Eyes of Texas is packed with information every orangeblood will want to have by their sides throughout the 2007 season. The wait is finally over. Texas Longhorn football is back.
