I'm happy as long as Baylor keeps winning. It's really helping our SOS.
Thanks Baylor!

Very good....and what is your overall record against TU? So you got them when they are down. Nice job.

I'm becoming concerned that our problems may go beyond a learning curve for 16 new starters, 12 of whom are freshmen (See Zero U, 2009 and 2010). Offensively, we're dysfunctional. We have no idea what we're trying to do. Defensively, have we done a Rick Barnes on this recruiting class? A bunch of highly rated, talented kids who don't know how to mesh into a team? Don't care about meshing into a team?This season is a lost cause. But we need answers, because said answers may affect the recruiting criteria we use going forward.

You may be right-the team concept wasn't good on defense even in the NEB game. This may certainly be an effect of taking the most stars instead of the best fits for a system on defense (or a lack of the DC adjusting the system to personnel).

I do feel sorry for Texas's opponent in a bowl-given a few weeks off to prep and a lighter opponent given the W-L record Texas will have I imagine the game will be one of the more lopsided this bowl season.

If Baylor can beat OkSU this week and TCU can beat Utah, the TCU SOS will be pretty strong for next week, particularly if OrSU wins and AFA beats Army as well.

Is it We have no idea what we're trying to do. or do you have some prima donna types? How are they acting when the play hasn't started or has just ended? Can't remember who just now, but there was a commentator on a team that was doing surprisingly bad and he mentioned that when breaking the huddle, the bad team just sort of casually walked to the line of scrimmage and, when the play was over, casually walked back to the huddle...and the "hurry up Offense" was again basically walking....while you could see the other team was more spirited and quickly getting into positions. Haven't watched a lot of TU games so really don't know.

I don't know if I would start comparing WM to Barnes just yet....:)

What I want to know is ... how did the Dallas Cowboys sneak into Austin and slip into the Longhorn's uniforms just prior to gametime?

I always wonder about that when I see players who are only one or two years removed on the sidelines. If McCoy would have donned a QB jersey and had a lot of facepaint on.....

Yea... I guess they get there. They can probaly eke out 1 from amongst OSU, at KSU and TAMU.

Good thinking scheduling OOC games Florida Atlantic, Rice and Wyoming.

I've contemplated bringing this up for about three weeks, but.....
Texas has always been a first or second a my favorite team so here goes:
1. the offensive line sux. really sux.
2. Greg Davis needs to go. there is no sense to what he is doing, this year in particular.
3. I think the defense will probably be okay, but for having experienced guys in the secondary, they make way to many mistakes.
4. take anybody with the last name Brown off the kick return teams.
5. This one might get argued, particularly because of #1, but I'm beginning to think that G. Gilbert is not going to be the great QB everyone thought. He's not a leader, he does not take control of the game, too many passes are just awful although he has had a lot of dropped balls), he's not good at checking down the receivers if one is covered and forces too many throws, he's not really a threat to run although G. Davis is trying to force that. And maybe that's the whole problem, Gilbert is being forced into a mold he doesn't fit. Perhaps he'll be a great player in a pro style offense, but not in a spread offense. IMHO.

I think a Texas-Florida matchup in a newly created "WTF? Bowl" would be appropriate. Is it possible for both teams to lose?

No way for Vegas to create a line on that one. lol
