Just to illustrate the importance of the running game . . . Army held the ball for 45 minutes in their game with OU. That is the primary reason why OU had to go to OT to get the win. 

Army grinded against a defense that is now banged up and inflicted its will. It also kept OU's offense off the field and I think that had something to do with OU's inconsistency.

Taking OU to OT at their crap stadium in Norman is nothing to be taken lightly.

We stick to running the ball against OU and pass here and there, we win the game. Period.

Agreed, Midget only thru 15 passes. Exactly what needs to be done. Difference is, if Texas gets into a position where hey HAVE to throw the ball they CAN. Army unfortunately could not. They will not get out of league play without a couple losses. People can say what they want but im truly not impressed with there team as a whole....maybe the WR core but that’s it lol. Won’t be a tougher game then Saturday. My opinion

Agreed that Ou is not that impressive BUT this game is such a huge rivalry game that it is always a tossup game no matter who is good or sucks that year. 

We can easily win that game but we have to play with pride and anger.

^^^^^^^  THIS  ^^^^^^^^

Excellent post...if ever a game was that there was never such a thing as a SURE winner, it is this one. Whichever team doesnt show up will lose.

speaking of favorites....I read somewhere today that Tom Herman as a head coach.....when ever his team has come in as a dog, his team has covered the spread something like 23-3. 

All this means is that if Texas is placed as a dog by Vegas...bet Texas.  23 out of 26 is pretty astonishing.

No doubt, def didn’t say it was a guarantee. But I do not believe it would be an “upset” this year like folks were thinking

Duane Akina, straight off the field last night after Stanford's crazy OT win against the Ducks...sees me and exclaims excitedly..." how about our Horns!!":D:D

 

Coach Akina recruited a kid I coached many many years ago. Great guy who loved talking to everyone, from the secretaries to students in the halls. Loved talking ball and life with him.

Open note to Chris Nelson and Todd Orlando:

Coach took away your belly rub celebration for fear of a taunting penalty. Understandable. I recommend you consider and allow a subdued version of the belly rub while walking back to the huddle, as in "man them sacks taste good," done personally and for the cameras -- and they will look -- so as not to show the crowd or the other team and thus no taunting. Problem solved. 

#don't kill the belly rub

I don’t have a clue on the rules but heard a rumor....is it true if Shane plays in less than 4 games It would be considered a “redshirt” and IF he transfers he’d have 2 years left of eligiblilty? Same with Jalen Hurts? 

Yes. He would have 2 years of eligibility. Don’t be surprised if you see him graduate and transfer.

I like Shane and believe he's a more than a capable college qb.  With that said, it would not surprise me to see him reunite with Strong & Gilbert at South Florida...and he'll do well for them.

It might seem too obvious to some, but I would think he would look there too. He excelled in Gilbert's offense as a freshman.

Do you think Blake Barnett returns for his senior season?  IDK much about the kid other than he's a former Alabama transfer.  He has a year remaining after this season.  Is he a draft prospect?  Seems to be doing pretty well so far this year...

A LOT can happen before a transfer would happen but another school I would think he’d look into is Tulsa.

    • I'll take the playoff berth.  We may lose to a team like Alabama but I don't think we get our ass whipped.  Just look at the scores since this staff has been here.   TCU last year is the only game we have lost by more than 10 points. 
    • They have a dandy lil QB, too
    • @Daniel Seahorn quick question: does the name Kamden Perry move the needle? He's a WR for Longview. Kid is putting up numbers. Heard of him? Thoughts? 
    • Agree, you don't often have a whole staff agree on a prospect. I'm surprised this is a rumor or not followed with "doesn't this happen often?" With limited numbers, every spot on the roster means something. Staff is trying to get to the point where there are no ( insert the names you know here ) players not carrying their weight on the roster. I think this all started on the TCU site where there was also birth given to the excuse of "Patterson told him to look around."
