Shipley gone, McCoy gone, and no run game. At least I'm realistic, I know what all OU lost and how it will affect them.
Malcolm Brown commits to UT

Cibolo Steele’s Malcolm Brown, the No. 1-rated player in the state on this year’s Fabulous 55 and one of the top-rated running back prospects in the country, committed to the Longhorns on Wednesday night.
He’s the big prize in what already is a big 2011 recruiting class for Texas.
Brown, 6-1 and 220 pounds, is Texas’ highest-profile running back recruit since Cedric Benson. He rushed for nearly 2,200 yards and 33 touchdowns last year.
“I was very comfortable up in Austin,” Brown told the San Antonio Express-News. “The coaches were real down-to-earth, and I know it’s the right fit.
He chose the Longhorns over Alabama.
“I guess I got a chance to look at UT a little more, because they’re right down the road,” Brown said.
Brown’s commitment now gives the Longhorns 23 for next year’s class. It’s believed Texas is recruiting only one more player: Louisiana defensive end Jermauria Rasco.
Here’s a list of Texas’ pledges, broken down by position:
Quarterbacks (1): David Ash, Belton
Running backs (2): Joe Bergeron, North Mesquite; Malcolm Brown, Cibolo Steele
Receivers (2): Miles Onyegbule, Arlington; Jaxon Shipley, Brownwood
Tight ends (1): M.J. McFarland, El Paso El Dorado
Offensive tackles (5): Josh Cochran, Hallsville; Taylor Doyle, Lake Travis; Garrett Greenlea, Klein Collins; Marcus Hutchins, DeSoto; Chris Westerman, Chandler (Ariz.)
Offensive guards (1): Sedrick Flowers, Galena Park North Shore
Defensive ends (1): Cedric Reed, Cleveland
Defensive tackles (2): Desmond Jackson, Spring Westfield; Quincy Russell, San Antonio Sam Houston
Linebackers (3): Steve Edmond, Daingerfield; Chet Moss, Cedar Park; Kendall Thompson, Carthage
Defensive backs (2): Sheroid Evans, Fort Bend Dulles; Leroy Scott, South Houston
Athletes (3): Quandre Diggs, Angleton; Mykkele Thompson, San Antonio Stevens; Josh Turner, Oklahoma City Millwood
And Jaxon Shipley is Jordan's little bro, so technically there is still a Shipley playing for the Longhorns.
You also have obviously not seen Gilbert play since the Championship game that he was thrown into. He is a really good QB and has had more time to actually practice with the first team offense as well as get the system down. I think you might be surprised.
