MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The curtain unceremoniously came down on Texas' 2012 regular season.
The guillotine might soon follow.
There is a feeling that heads might roll after Texas finished with an 8-4 record, just one loss better than last season's mark, with a Cotton Bowl game against a top-10 team from the SEC to go. Not the head that wears the crown, mind you.
Texas coach Mack Brown has enough cachet and hubris to remain committed to the program. (Earlier this week he stated "for the 19th time" he is not stepping away.) That alone might be maddening enough for some portion of the fan base to be committed to a room with rubber walls.
As for the ceiling Texas continues to hit -- well, it is real and apparently impervious. Not even a change at quarterback could alter things. Texas still lost to a top-10 team -- 42-24 to No. 6 Kansas State (11-1 overall, 8-1 Big 12) in front of 50,912 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday night -- just in a different, slightly less of a ho-hum fashion.
