Longhorns' fall is historically steep
In the latest edition of College GameDay Final, ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel has an enlightening note on just how far and fast Texas has fallen since playing in last season's national championship game.
I'm not picking on Texas, which is 4-5 and sprinting backward after the 39-14 loss at Kansas State. But one of you asked if the Longhorns might have the worst follow-up season by a team that played for a national championship the previous season. In the BCS era, that distinction belongs to the 2002 Nebraska Huskers, who finished 7-7. Prior to that, the closest comparison is to Michigan State in 1967, which went 3-7 after finishing second in the final poll the previous season.
