  1. I don’t know but it’s nice to hear something like this and not hope like crazy that he considers Texas. It’s nice having quality and depth at QB.

    Am I correct that in our system the Rover drops into coverage more and the BLB is more of a pass rusher? Almost like a DE who doesn’t have a hand on the ground??

    Another Shaka shitshow

    Agreed. When you get the “right guy” as a coach, improvement is typically seen almost immediately. Certainly by year 2. This facade that you cannot make judgments until they have all their own players in place is naive.

    Another Shaka shitshow

    PLEASE don’t build another 17K seat arena for basketball! What’s more embarrassing than the play is seeing half the seats are empty.
  5. Rick had it all..... tall, cannon arm, ability to run. Played during the Akers glory years and spent several years in the NFL. As strange as it sounds, he didn’t end his career as a starter. I believe Todd Dodge started his senior year?
  6. Oh, I remember it well (cue the harp): Nebraska ends the season undefeated and #1 with arguably the greatest college O of all time. Texas ends the season undefeated and #2 with arguably the greatest college defense of all time. Nebraska is obligated to play in the Orange Bowl,and Texas the Cotton. Texas dominates Georgia to the tune of allowing 3 points and two times all game has Georgia crossed the 50. With a couple minutes left Georgia inexplicably lines up to punt trailing by 6. Texas in disbelief drops the safety back who muffs the punt and loses the ball at about the 20. Georgia scores and wins the game. Nebraska is upset by Miami later that night. MUST BEAT GEORGIA!!!!
  7. I’ve read two different people on Hornsports suggest that Orlando’s defense is made to stop an offense like Georgia. I’m not trying to argue, I’m interested to know the thinking behind this conclusion? The way I see it, everything we do is about combating the spread. Most of the time we have 2 players on the field over 255 pounds and one of them is 285. 3 linemen, 2 linebackers and a half dozen DBs is a common lineup for us..... What am I missing? Like Sirhornsalot, I will hold off and seek a way to pick Texas. I’m still reeling from my embarrassing Iowa St pick.
  8. I think we have a good chance as well. I’m a bit concerned how our small and quick DL handles their huge OL....
  9. Agree... I think Herman’s plan was to allow Buechele to red-shirt out of respect for the young man. I believe he’s played in 3 games though.... if I’m correct, does that mean game time in the bowl eliminates the redshirt option??
  10. This phenomena happens almost every year..... it’s how the UCFs of the world knock off the big boys. It is a definite possibility. I doubt what we say on Hornsports has an effect on how Texas or Georgia prepare for the game.
  11. Interesting.... I don’t think I agree. I think Orlando makes his living as a spread stopper. You’re not going to run that dime package very much! when I looked at Georgia’s mammoth OL, I wondered how: Hager, Omenihu and Nelson night hold up.....
  12. How many games has Buechele played in this year? Can’t he still redshirt under the new rule? Does that come into play in deciding whether or not he plays??
  13. Georgia gave me the worst sports pain of my life.... Cotton Bowl in 1984 (1983 season). Never have I seen a team win a game as outclassed as Georgia was that day. I believe they crossed the 50 yardline twice all game (or something ridiculous like that). It turned out that this cost us a national championship. Revenge is a dish best served cold.
  14. I’m ready yesterday. Beyond the officiating that is down right abismal, the league office is embarrassing. If the ridiculous commercials weren’t bad enough - touting “the most challenging road to the championship,” the horns down / horns up pre-championship game announcements were the icing on the cake. Please, Texas or OU bolt and start the explosion!

    Five Thoughts: Big 12 Championship

    This season is a tremendous success in my book. We lose a bunch of seniors and possibly 1 or 2 juniors.... but I think this thing keeps getting better. I love Hager Omenihu and Nelson; but in this defense I think we have to get bigger up front! Watching Georgia / BAMA drove this point home. If we play Georgia in the Sugar Bowl they will have a size advantage (both lines) like we haven’t seen in some time.
