SI Cover Jinx: University of Texas?

Not sure I get all the hype over Texas this year. I know the Big 12 media picked Oklahoma to win the South, but Texas is ranked No. 4 by Sports Illustrated and - uh-oh - on the cover this week.

Last time I checked UT lost a quarterback named Colt McCoy and a receiver called Jordan Shipley and defenders who went by the call signs of Earl Thomas and Sergio Kindle.

No biggie you say?

Garrett Gilbert wasn't a disaster in last season's BCS National Championship Game, but is there any doubt that Jerrod Johnson is better?

And, by the way, is this the year that Texas A&M is finally better than the Longhorns?
