However the decision to “retire” came about, I applaud the move standing up.
Texas quarterback David Ash, who has missed most of the season with concussion symptoms, will not return until spring practice.
Texas wide receiver Daje Johnson, who the Longhorns are counting on as their big playmaker, will miss Saturday’s game against No. 25 Mississippi with a sprained left ankle.
This wasn’t exactly the type of start the Texas Longhorns’ new fast-paced offense envisioned: Fumbling the football on the first drive and then stalling out the rest of the opening quarter.
