Would love to win as Texas did , but wouldn't want the precipitous fall from that high perch like Texas had . They have not even sniffed another championship since that night .

You seem to have forgotten the Colt McCoy era

Texas played for and lost the national championship against Alabama 4 years later when Colt McCoy got hurt in the opening drive of the game. When McCoy graduated after being a 4 year starter, he was the winningest QB in college football history. His record was later broken by Kellen Moore of Boise State, but having averaging over 11 wins per season in the 4 years after the 2005 national championship actually made them the most successful program in the nation in terms of wins.

Also, in regards the article, DW4 actually finished 3rd in the Heisman, and not 2nd like they said.
