  1. Longhorns Going Bowling, but Where?

    I voted the Camping World Bowl, but now that I think about it, I figure TCU will end up 10-3 and likely out of the New Years Six. That bumps Texas down one because the Alamo Bowl would be foolish to pass up TCU. The Camping World Bowl may take a 7-5 W Virginia because they would be more of a regional team than the rest of the Big 12. That leaves the Texas Bowl with a choice between Texas and Okie lite.

    So is this a gratuitous Kate entrance or does it have real meaning ?
  3. It's pretty obvious the Big 12 condones what the officiating crews are doing with this. And that makes the Big 12 conference leadership a joke.
  4. Big 12 officiating is by far the worst in the FBS
  5. Friday Night Lights – Playoffs Rd 1

    Agreed. I'm glad our school made the playoffs, but they were 1-3 in district. They get the pleasure of playing Waco La Vega tomorrow night. It shouldn't take long for that game to get out of hand. The UIL needs to stop it with the five school districts. This is a by product of the Div I and II format, IMO. I heard Craig Way say they will be expanding that into 5A and 6A next year. It needs to be six teams in a district minimum. And no more than eight.

    It's always nice to see Kate.
  7. *****Texas vs. Kansas Game Thread*****

    Something I didn't put in my rant. I think Buechele has become the UT version of David Carr. He has the ability to propel Texas over the hump, but can't and won't because of the OLine.
  8. *****Texas vs. Kansas Game Thread*****

    Here is my assessment of this game, for what it's worth. 1. The offense was playing well, all things considered, until the coaching staff put in Ehlinger. I can't help but think the offense (and defense to a point) relaxed and Buechele was concerned and started looking over his shoulder. so to speak. 2. What was the substitution pattern for the RB's? Was it play the freshman for a quarter and then play Porter? This led to the offensive breakdown as much as the QB change. 3. The officials reviewed another play involving a penalty. I would guess this has happened only twice in Big 12 play, and both occurred during a Texas game. This makes he conspiracy theorist in me think that things are pre-determined. The Iowa St - Okie lite game is another indicator in my mind. Iowa St got screwed by the refs in that game. 4. This offensive line has to be the worst I have ever seen and I have been watching Texas football for 40 years. Their ineptitude allows every defense we play to put the minimum in the box and drop everyone else into coverage. Anyways, That's my rant. I'm glad it was a win, but I hated watching a shit show for almost three quarters.

    Shane was worried about the rush and because of that throwing off his back foot.
  10. *****Texas vs. Kansas Game Thread*****

    This is where things started going wrong. I realize it's a W, but it was pretty much a shit show on offense after that.

    Texas needs a San Jose St type blowout for me to feel a bit easier about a bowl game going forward.

    I read this earlier today. I knew there were injuries to the offense but I guess I had viewed them one at a time and not as a whole. I will chill out on Beck. But I still have questions about how the staff goes about substitutions. At this point I will be ecstatic with a Texas or Cactus bowl appearance. I'm still hoping for an 8-5 season when its all said and done

    Hopefully Rodriguez gets a medical and starts next year as a junior.

    I heard a remake of "Bad Company" the other day, really pissed me off the way it was butchered. Remakes are hit or miss today.
  15. *****Texas vs. TCU Game Thread*****

    Herman isn't the genius everyone thought he was. Hiring Tim Beck was a mistake. I'm not crazy about turning over offensive coordinators every year, but Beck's hire was Shawn Watson bad. Couple that with Orlando probably being gone after this year and next season doesn't hold much promise.
