Texas Intent on Boosting Turnover Margin

ESPN.com’s Tim Griffin talks with Texas coaches and defenders about the Longhorns’ desire to generate more turnovers after finishing dead last in the Big 12 with only 16 turnovers forced last season.
“Texas fans think they’ve seen Will Muschamp at his most bombastic.

Sure, ‘Coach Boom’ had some combustible moments last season along the sideline after sacks and big third-down stops. But Muschamp kept some of his emotion under wraps at times because his defense didn’t do a good job of forcing turnovers during his first season.

The Longhorns came only a couple of seconds away from challenging for the BCS championship. Their performance was amazing considering they were only plus-2 in turnover margin to rank 49th nationally.”
