Your 2013 Texas Longhorns position battle of the preseason is ...

Texas' David Ash and Case McCoy Instead of arguing the relative merits of David Ash and Case McCoy, we can now debate Texas' kicker derby. (AP)

For the first time in what seems like* a generation, Texas has a starting quarterback in the preseason. But now that David Ash is The Guy, what are folks going to holler about in Austin? How about the starting kicker race? From the Austin American-Statesman:

One of the more heated battles for playing time appears to be in the kicking game between placekickers Nick Jordan and Nick Rose, with Anthony Fera looming in the background. Jordan won the job in 2012 as a true freshman after Fera, the transfer from Penn State, was hampered by a groin injury before the season. Rose, who has a strong leg but was inconsistent on field goals, handled kickoffs. But Brown said Rose has improved his accuracy, and that he and Jordan are now even in the placekicking race. Fera is handling the punting because Will Russ is out with a back injury, but will begin place-kicking in the summer.

It's not quite the endlessly-fertile-into-October font of material that HAS TEXAS NAMED A STARTING QUARTERBACK YET? was, but for now, it will have to do.

*But is not actually that long. We know. Do not email us. Thanks so much.
