While the Texas Longhorns did many things better on offense in 2012, inconsistencies and problems from 2011 returned and derailed the unit's development.
Texas has a stable of outstanding running backs, which is one of the reasons why Malcolm Brown is struggling to get carries since returning from injury.
While there have been some surprises, such as David Ash's performance, many other issues have been exposed in recent weeks.
Texas has ridden a diverse offense to 107 points its past two games, giving it the necessary firepower to deal with West Virginia this Saturday.
Did Texas QB David Ash light the stat book on fire against Wyoming? No, but he moved the chains, protected the ball and, most importantly, got a win.
In his transition to receiver this spring, hybrid back D.J. Monroe dedicated himself to becoming the reliable pass-catcher the Longhorns needed, and so far his concentrated approach is paying off for the whole team.
In 2012, Texas will return nine starters but needs help at receiver and consistency at quarterback.
