The Longhorns became a consensus number one last week here at Bevo Sports (and Matt’s had them there since very early on), but now bandwagon is growing. The Master Coaches Survey, made up of sixteen former college football coaches like Hayden Fry and R.C. Slocum, has Texas number one overall this week. The Horns secured ten of the sixteen first place votes and passed reigning champs and last week’s number one team USC by five points.

Seems, like us, the coaches are unimpressed with the performance of the USC defense so far this season. As former University of Virginia coach George Welsh put it…

I’ve changed my mind about USC. I’m gonna vote for Texas this week because I think they have a better defense. In games like that, I don’t know if Southern Cal could score 35 points, which they might have to do.

Apparently the beatings the Horns gave Slocum’s Texas A&M Aggies and cost him his job didn’t get the message across, he still has the Trojans number one. Though I bet a lot of A&M fans are wishing he was still around now.
