Tottering Texas: Longhorns athletics enduring hard times on and off the field

Texas, the behemoth of the Big 12, is in a serious funk.

The wealthiest athletic program in the country, the one with its own television network and some of the finest facilities around, has been racked by bad results on the field and embarrassed by revelations of coaches having inappropriate relationships with students.

Football recruiting has fallen off a bit. Fans are irritated and impatient for their teams to start competing again for Big 12 and national championships.

Athletic director DeLoss Dodds says he believes success is just around the corner and money is still pouring in.
