Texas, Baylor Want It All

Updated: Wednesday, July 24 2013, 05:58 PM CDT

13 wins and nothing less.


When asked what a winning season constitutes, that's the message the UT players sent loud and clear as they enter the 2013 season.


"We've had enough of being medicore," said offensive lineman Trey Hopkins.  "This team has seen both sides of the coin. They've seen when they can be good and they've seen when they can get their teeth kicked in and I think it's come to a point where people have said enough is enough."


"They don't want to hear you saying 10 win season, 9 win season, 11 win season," explained UT defensive back Adrian Phillips."  They don't care about that.  You want to win every single game."


Mack Brown knows all too well what is and isn't acceptable on the Forty Acres.  


"We won 9 games our first year, 15 years ago and they had a parade," said the Texas head coach.  "We've created this monster and we've created these expectations ourselves and they're a good thing.  It's an awful message when coaches start sending a message that there's anything less than all of the games that you should win.Meanwhile in Waco the attitude is the same as the Longhorns, but the confidence is on another level.  In December Lache Seastrunk told the Sporting News he would win the Heisman.  He didn't back down from that Tuesday.


"Why not feel that way?" Seastrunk explained.  "And the reason why I feel that way because why not?  Like why not Baylor?


Art Briles has transformed Baylor into a legitimate contender, but is far from satisfied.


"I'm not sure it has happened yet, I think we're in the process of happening," Briles said.  "We're certainly on a positive path.


His confidence has trickled down to his players, and they believe in what's next.
