    AUSTIN, Texas — Perhaps the Texas defense became weary hearing about all its shortcomings to start the season, because on Saturday night, the Longhorns were anything but mediocre.

    Mack Brown’s team is in trouble. Through three games this season, Brown’s Texas Longhorns have allowed more than 300 rushing yards per game, ranking 121st out of 123 teams nationally. And what a coincidence, the Longhorns (1-2) have to face Kansas State on Saturday — a
