Texas releases a trailer video declaring the Longhorns are back

In case you were wondering when Texas football would return to national prominence, the university has issued an answer in the form of a 2013 trailer.

According to the video, “Texas… Football… Is… Back.”

Go ahead, get out that hearty laugh.

The video is full of clips from last year and coach Mack Brown does a voiceover aimed at getting Texas fans pumped, but really just apologizes for the past couple seasons.

"All of the energy and work we've put in the last two years are going to start showing more results," Mack Brown says. "You want to get back to being one of the top football programs in the country, where we deserve to be and our fans deserve to be."

The Longhorns are in the midst of one of their worst stretches since the 1990s. The Longhorns were 5-7 in 2010, 8-5 in 2011 and 9-4 last year. Brown was so proud of his team’s win in the Alamo Bowl last year, he got them all bowl rings. What a steep drop from playing in the national championship in 2009.

Texas did have its moments last year led by quarterback David Ash, but claiming that the Longhorns are back might be a bit of a stretch.
