Bevo Droppings: Texas Adjusts Future Schedule
Longhorn news and notes so far this week:

- Poll watch: Texas stayed steady at four in the Coaches Poll and dropped to seven in the AP poll.

- Through three games the Longhorns are second nationally in total defense and 72nd in total offense.

- In recruiting news, San Antonio Madison blue chip running back Aaron Green confirmed that he has been talking to running back coach Major Applewhite and continues to list Texas in his top four.

- The Big 12 officially announced it's separation deal with Nebraska and Colorado and both will leave the conference after the 2010-2011 school year. Nebraska will pay $9.255 million and Colorado will pay $6.86 million in severance fees.

- Texas defensive end Sam Acho has been named to the AFCA Good Works team. Only 11 players are selected nationally for the team and he's just the seventh longhorn to be named to the team in its 19- year history. Acho goes to Nigeria each summer to help his parents' mission work in their home country in addition to other community service.

- Mack Brown announced in his Wednesday press conference that D.J. Monroe is practicing exclusively with the running backs this week and should get more playing time.

- Mack Brown also shot down the rumors floating that offensive line coach Mac Mcwhorter's job could be in jeopardy. The rumors popped up after Brown was seen apparently chewing McWhorter out on the sideline during Saturday night's game in Lubbock combined with poor run blocking this season.

- Adjustments and additions to the Longhorns' non-conference schedule was also announced Wednesday due to their new nine-game conference schedule with the departure of Nebraska and Colorado:
