Booting play-caller Shawn Watson in favor of new one Jay Norvell may not be enough to solve the Longhorns’ abysmal play in its past three games. Starting backup QB Jerrod Heard instead of ever-dismal QB Tyrone Swoopes might not either.
But the QB switch has to come and Watson’s incredible refusal to give RB J. Gray the ball more than eight times against Notre Dame was simply inexcusable. Gotta give coach Charlie Strong credit for trying something to put some backbone into his new cream-puff team with the worst offense in college football.
