  1. Longhorns Going Bowling, but Where?

    I'm guessing Texas Bowl. If OU beats TCU I think TCU drops out of the New Year's Eve bowls and falls to the Alamo bowl.
  2. Helmets

    That's pretty cool. I forgot Saturday is Veteran's day. Will probably see some in uniform for the game.
  3. Mack Brown for AD?

    no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
  4. Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Iowa State

    This game scares me. But someone much smarter than me said "Have a little faith, baby. Have a little faith" So I'm saying Tom Herman makes a difference with this team because last year this team would tank. UT 35 ISU 10
  5. Poona Ford

    I've always believed that in college, lineman are better in their junior and senior years. The main reason is that there can be a huge difference in an 18 yo's body and a 22-23 yo. No matter how talented you are, a bigger, stronger, more experienced person can beat you 4 out of 5 times. Sure we got some great talent but they're young. Poona took a couple of years before he started to make a name for himself. Now that he's a senior, he's bigger, stronger and more experienced.
  6. Texas vs OU

    Get to the game early. If you are parking, you want to park in the Fair lots. You can take your changes in someone's front lawn, but....you might get parked in or worse. One year I parked in some strip center a couple of blocks away. If it says "No Parking", don't park there just because of bunch of other people did. If you're taking the mass transit, expect a long wait. The closer to the fair you are, the longer the wait. Maybe I'll see you there.
  7. 5 Thoughts Following Texas/USC

    I'm encouraged by how our defense played. If USC is as good as everyone says they are then we have a championship defense. We just need a good offense and we're back in business. With that said, let's see what happens at Ames. The D needs to keep this high level of play and the O should have a slightly easier time. This team has potential, but then so have other Texas teams.
  8. Next 5 Games

    When was the last time Texas smacked anyone in the mouth? With Mack Brown's last few teams we were "soft". Charlie Strong was supposed to change that label, but he could never be consistent enough to not get smacked around in Ames and Lawrence. I'm not sure Texas is ready to smack anyone in the mouth and stand up to them. I can't wait until we have a team that just b!tch slaps everyone--cupcakes as well as top 10 teams.
  9. The 4-2-5 only works if the DL and Linebackers can stop the run. Look what Maryland did. And if you have a running QB, you're outnumbered unless you bring in a safety for run support. After 2 games, I'm not sure we have the personnel to play a 4-2-5 consistently and stop the run.
  10. Week 1 Prediction: Horns vs Terps

    I'm betting the farm on this one... I predict the score will be 0-0 before the game starts.
  11. If I've learned anything these last few seasons is that I'm nervous every game. When the likes of Iowa State and Kansas can beat you, ain't no game a gimme.
  12. Yeah. Someone much smarter than me said "It ain't over til it's over". You play til you hear the whistle and you don't let up until the final cannon goes off. That's football. If you don't like it, go play soccer.
  13. Selling 2 tickets for Maryland

    That "discount" doesn't include the donation you have to give in order get the "discount".
  14. It Begins.... (2017 Fall Camp Thread)

    Well crap. That kind of sucks. Actually, I think that's smart. We need QBs that are ready to play. You need plans for all available QBs. You script everything and pray it goes close to planned. Texas only has 2 QBs. There is no way you can consider redshirting Sam. If we had 3 or 4 QBs, then it would be a consideration, but only if he were the #3 or #4 option.
  15. He was special teams last year after a medical redshirt in 2015. I hope he can still play.
