Rumor is that Shimonek is out and that McLane Carter, lefty juco transfer, will start at QB. Played HS at Gilmer and one year at Tyler JC where he threw for over 300 yards in 7 straight games including 578 yards in one game.

Those seem like good numbers but he hasn’t started all season for a reason, see if he can do it against Orlando and company

Also interesting that the line took a pretty good move overnight from 10 to 7.5. Don't know if it has anything to do with it but evidently some Texas players were sick earlier in the week. 

ohhh boy.... surly we kill that spread.... but then again a W is a W at this point

Report is now out that Carter will start. I’m familiar with him from his TJC days and thought he was a pretty solid pickup for Tech. Not an ideal situation to get his first start though.

Yeah the spread dropping like that doesn’t make sense unless there is something going on that we aren’t aware of. Very interesting.

Did admins make the predictions and I miss it? Don’t see it

Good numbers but it wont translate from JUCO to tonights game.  Orlando's defense confuses experienced QB's. 

Carter better wear a flak jacket, he is toast.

I’d like to see us do to him what Carl Reese’s defense did to Kingsbury. They knocked him around pretty good. I remember one of the plays Kingsbury was laying on his back with his helmet nearly knocked off.....his chinstrap was up around his eyes and part of the grass stuck in his helmet. We brought the pain that night.

    • the date has been set for some time, lol.  LSU is offering backup options.  
    • I thought he has signing ceremony set for 20 December?  Since he set the date, I don't think we would hear anything until then.  Not much to be concerned with as far as dragging out.  It sounds like his mind is set and I also thought I read somewhere has was making a video.
    • PG just was too big strong for Graham. They also had more speed. Both teams ran the slot T offense but when Graham went down big early it forced them into some spread 5 wide stuff. PG had some dudes in the back field, #15 their FB/RB was hard to bring down. #2 SB/WB was fast. Graham had no answer all night. I spoke with some old college buddies in the stands (who grew up in Graham) and they said the didn't think they had a chance against PG, said their team hadn't really played anybody all year and this was their first test by playing somebody who was bigger, faster, and stronger than they were. The score sure showed that way at the end of the game. The Star was a neat place, I'd recommend y'all going to try and catch a game there next year. Lots of restaurants/bars in the area are walk-able. 
    • I don't think Texas (historically) uses JUCOs quite enough.  While I agree that the lifeblood of healthy programs is high school recruiting.... I believe JUCOs can serve a significant role filling immediate needs for early NFL entries, unexpected busts, etc.... maybe three to five per signing class.  This could serve to keep the program competitive every year.  OL is a prime example right now.     
    • EJ and Roach bot still have him leaning towards UT. I hope they are right. It has also been said that LSU has started offering other CBs. Seems like they think Cook is a UT lean as well.
