  1. Below is an interesting blurb I read. If this is true, looks like the PAC 12 is out again. All four playoff teams are currently in the top 10 In the first four years of the College Football Playoff, 14 of the 16 teams to make it were ranked in the top nine at the season's midpoint. The lone exceptions were the 2014 Ohio State Buckeyes and the 2015 Oklahoma Sooners. So while there's a path for a few teams outside the current top 10 -- Kentucky, Oregon and NC State could get in by winning out -- the truth is, we've already narrowed the likely contenders to a list of eight or nine.

    New Top 25 poll

    Who cares. Still have 5 games to go. The only time it matters is at the end of the season. There will plenty of "upsets" in the next couple of weeks.
  3. Texas has a few problems to correct. I don't think we are a top 5 team. Not sure we are top 10 at this point. Keep winning and improving and we will be a true top 10 team at the end of the season. Got email asking if I wanted to reserve my tickets for conference championship and bowl game. A little early for the CC game.

    Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Baylor

    There is no way the staff will have Shane run on a called play. If he gets injured we're in big trouble. I think teams know this and won't defense a QB run. Shane looked rusty, but with 2 weeks of prep, he should be ready running the first team.
  5. Dude! Quit making sense. This is the aggie thread. Winning is easy. Losing in the SEC should move you up in the rankings...unless it's a Big 12 team, then they should move down.

    Mike Stoops let go

    I think it was because Manny Diaz's scheme was too complicated. The players were confused and really couldn't see the results so they lost faith in his schemes. The players were there, at least at LB and secondary.
  7. I will say that at least I'm not looking forward to next year. In years past, about this time of year, our season was all but over--just hoping to become bowl eligible. I haven't been this excited about a season after 6 games in a long, long, long time.

    How about this? I thought the idea was that winning improved our chances at 5* talent we are in the running 4. 4 ain't no preposition.
  11. I would say, Texas is on its way back. We are winning games. That's a big step forward. But Texas isn't truly back until it consistently runs teams like Tulsa out of the stadium. Quits losing to middle of the road teams like Maryland. Quits letting teams hang around like the K-State game. When Texas becomes consistent and quits shooting itself in the foot, then it will be back. Winning a Big 12 conference title may not be enough to say "Texas is back". It would be a great step forward but doesn't mean we're back. At least not in my opinion.

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Kansas State

    Once the QB leaves the pocket, they become a runner. I couldn't tell from the video but I'm not sure he hit him with the crown of his helmet. Also, it didn't seem like he "launched" himself. He definitely didn't leave his feet.

    Texas needs to keep the score low. I don't think we can win in a shootout unless the D and special teams help us out. 28-27 Texas because OU sux
