Texas Defense Ready To Rise

Updated: Tuesday, August 20 2013, 07:44 PM CDT

The University of Texas defense is hoping the debacle of 2012 is a distant memory. The Longhorns gave up 400 yards per game last season, which is the most in school history.

Defensive Coordinator Manny Diaz saw his unit allow more than 30 points in a game six out of 13 times Texas took the field.

Diaz said this fall he has been trying to create a winning defense that is fast, physical and tough. The players see his vision and are willing to do anything it takes to avoid another disappointing season.

"I think that is the first step in changing who we are," Texas Linebacker Jordan Hicks said. "It's taking ownership and changing the way we prepare, the way we think, the way we play, so I think we have done a good job of that."

Texas Defensive End Jackson Jeffcoat said he expects the Texas defensive standard to return this year and make a come-back.

"We realize that there are little things that we can get corrected easily, and that will change the outcome of games," Jeffcoat said.
