  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Selling 2 tickets for Maryland

    That "discount" doesn't include the donation you have to give in order get the "discount".
  8. 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.
  9. He was special teams last year after a medical redshirt in 2015. I hope he can still play.
  10. Definitely a position of need. Hope he stays healthy and help us fill the need.
  11. A huge get for Texas but in college basketball you need a PG to be really successful. Until we get a true PG, with a little experience, it's going to be tough for Texas to go deep into the tournament. Still, we should be vastly improved over last year.
  12. could be he doesn't pee like a champion... I wish him the best. I too thought he could be a stud for UT. Now is a chance for someone else to step up.
  13. "Not so fast my friend"
  14. This guy has Hall of Fame written all over him. Too bad Swimming and Diving isn't a big time sport. The same can be said about Jerritt Elliott. He wins and takes his teams to the final 4 year in and year out. But the fact that it isn't football, basketball or even baseball, they are considered great men in minor sports. If it was so easy, everyone would be doing it.

    Winning games will put Texas back into the top schools of these guys. They may like Texas but if we can't show them improvement, they'll look elsewhere.
