Texas to face Missouri in Texas Bowl

Recommended Posts

In the old days the team relied on senior leadership and Jr/Sr depth chart. Of course I can trace my days back to Shorthorns. The new Soph class hitting the varsity was a big deal. Either you couldn't head to the NFL early, or you had the sense not to go and get your head bashed in by grown men. With, what, a thin bar in front of your nose? No indoor stadiums either. Well, Astrodome came along fairly soon.

This is not a good game to be missing Holton Hill and Deshon Elliott. No doubt the Tigers will throw the ball all over the field if the Longhorns lets them. Drew Lock is the real deal.

Yea the “next man up” line ain’t a good one for this deal. I know we have depth but there gonna have to grow up quick. Small preview into next year secondary to come

Initial predictions, gentlemen?

Mizzou played some ugly ball early this year, but seemed to put things together toward the end. Beating Texas would be a benchmark for that program as it tries to climb out of the downturn its been in.

Texas has had some distractions with the departures and ending with a loss. Herman will need to get this team refocused and inspired.

I am ready for closure on this first year of the Tom Herman era..I am excited to see what kind of a recruiting class he can bring in. I guess we will find out who really wants to be here and be a part of the new attitude and culture that Herman brings to the table...

To the outgoing Seniors, Thank you for your time on the 40 Acres, sorry that you weren't exactly set up for success, but I for one appreciate your loyalty to Longhorn Nation

could we make an 'early early' signing period and bring in all those DB's we have committed?

Interesting . . . we get some bodies back for this one. Herman has a lot of time to game plan. 

I like Elliott, but don't see his absence as a game changer. We have quality depth and though I love the guy, I think Elliott was the benefit of some luck this year.

Where it might hurt, for the time being, is Malik's spot. Some of the plays Malik was making would change momentum, even if slightly. Teams had to account for him, seldom successfully.

BTW, Tech is the new cockroach of this era.

The OL is the key and as I said, we have some bodies back. It won't be huge, but we're facing a weak DL (against the rush) and should be okay.

Herman will make a big deal out of this game, if only within the locker room. He wants that momentum he needs going into the off season. He'll get some soon on the recruiting trail. But nothing can replace a bowl win going into the off season desert. 

Defense gets a pick six.

 

Texas 35

Mizzou 21

I so badly want to believe, but I'm becoming a pessimistic middle aged codger!

 

I think Texas can be a good team and dismantle  Mizzou, but then I think about Tech and get the sads.

    • And then there was one . . .  And then there was one. One Texas commit remains in the hunt for a state championship crown – Cuero’s Jordan Whittington. QB commit for 2020 Hudson Card and his Lake Travis team were eliminated by Galena Park North Shore. In other state final games of interest . . . .  Texas 2020 prospect Landon Jackson (DE, Pleasant Grove) will be in action when the defending state champs take on #5 Cuero and Jordan Whittington. Game time Friday is 11 am. Class 3A Div 2 #1 Newton had a mild scare last week with East Bernard coming within 7 points of Newton. This week, the pride of the Panhandle, #4 Canadian is the only thing left standing between the Eagles and a state title. Expect Canadian to give Newton a good game. Grandview vs Malakoff may be the most underrated state final this week. They face off Thursday night at 7 p.m. #3 Liberty Hill takes on #4 La Vega, a match up that has been anticipated for weeks. Could be one of the most exciting class 4A finals ever. Class 5A #1 Aledo has mowed down competition all season. This week, however, Fort Bend Marshall might present a more evenly matched game.  History and tradition meet up against the modern and new when Highland Park takes on #6 Shadow Creek, a school that only recently began varsity football. CAN #4 Longview break the curse? No state title in Longview since 1937. They’ll have to make it through an upstart West Brook squad to get it done. Next to Lufkin and Rockwall, this will be Longview’s toughest test to date. In what may be a game for the ages, #5 Duncanville will take on #2 Galena Park North Shore in the Saturday night cap at AT&T. There will be so much D1 talent on the field at the same time, it will be a better game than many of the bowl games set to be played. SHA’s PICKS GP North Shore over Duncanville

      Class 4A, Div 2   JORDAN WHITTINGTON, WR, CUERO – Cuero defeated Silsbee 29-24. Whittington caught five passes for 60 yards. He was also 2 out of 2 passing for 90 yards and had 34 yards rushing. On defense, Whittington had an INT, then had an INT on a 2-pt conversion that he returned for a score.

    • Lol Hamm and that looney mawmaw lady.
    • Ags calling their shot.  Sheppard flip
    • Typically, this is the time when they'd get some meaningful playing time (in the bowl game). So I hope they can recover fast enough to play in the Sugar. That said, even if they do, they will not have practiced through the whole period so there would be some rust to kick off.
