    Texas’s problems vs Oklahoma that made the game not even competitive fall squarely on the head coach Mack Brown who refused to make a decision about who is the quarterback of the team.  Everyone knows that when healthy a quarterback such as Peyton Manning demands all of the reps during practice, not out of selfishness, but because a quarterback and his receivers need all of the repetitions they can get so that in a game they can execute plays properly.

    A team with two quarterbacks is a team with zero quarterbacks.  It astonishes me that teams keep repeating the mistake of trying to alternate quarterbacks in a game who do not have defined and distinct roles.

    Tebow as a freshman running into the game to run a designed quarterback run is acceptable.  Tebow being asked to run the passing game similar to Leak would have been a travesty.
