AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas Longhorns are in crisis.
The defense is in shambles, coach Mack Brown is facing rampant speculation that his job is on the line and a season that started with the promise of a rebirth of Longhorns football is teetering on the brink of collapse just two games into the season.
And here come the No. 25 Ole Miss Rebels (2-0), ranked for the first time in four years and eager to shove the Longhorns (1-1) off the cliff Saturday night.
Brown fired defensive coordinator Manny Diaz within hours after an embarrassing loss at BYU last week and hired Greg Robinson, who was the Longhorns defensive coordinator in 2004.
Brown needs Robinson to fix his defense in a hurry. But by midweek he tried to lower expectations as Robinson had only a few days to prepare. Brown noted the Longhorns' Big 12 schedule doesn't start until the next game.
