    Texas Volleyball is Fantastic!

    Starting this topic to show some love for the high flyin’ Horns volleyball team. The ladies are kickin’ butt and takin’ names. They play great defense and top notch offense. This year serving has also become a strength. The Horns recently bested then #1 Baylor at home in straight sets in a dominating performance to take the #1 spot.

    Bijan will play the #1 team in Arizona next week Robinson eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark for the third straight season on a 54-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. He had two other touchdowns wiped away by flags, part of Salpointe’s nine penalties for 76 yards. However, that just delayed the inevitable. Robinson finished with 19 carries for 133 yards, upping his total to 108 carries for 2,107 yards this season, 6,908 for his career. https://tucson.com/sports/highschool/bourguet-s-four-touchdown-passes-lead-salpointe-to-blowout-win/article_5fc90fa1-84cb-5fe8-b848-52617c33d44e.html

    I rather have a chance to go to the Big 12 championship game. You are a true longhorn fan and your OU hate shows it. Even if it cost UT.

    Since UT didn’t take care of business vs TCU our most likely path to the championship game is ou winning out and us winning out. I’m just going to root for Baylor to lose.

    As Lee Carso would say not so fast. If UT beats Iowa State tomorrow than it's in the longhorns interest for OU to beat Baylor then win out. If UT can win earlier in the day against Iowa State then they will have a chance to win their last two games and make the Big 12 championship game. I'm not watching the game if that's the case. Sorry, I can't cheer for OU. If UT loses against Iowa State than it doesn't matter and you can't root for the rapers.

    This team still tries too many 3 pointers. And they still suck at it. The offensive sets seem to be emphasizing driving towards the basket a bit more, but ultimately this team doesn't seem too much different from last year's.

    I think I’m a fairly typical UT fan.... probably overreact to the bad and good with Texas football. I’ve been pretty negative this season. But win this game, somehow someway... figure out a way to win this game, and I’m going into the chest of drawers and pulling out the burnt orange pom poms!

    THE TOP 10 JOBS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL The argument about the attractiveness of the Florida State job started, as many do, on social media. While many felt Florida State is still a top-10 job in college football, there were a surprising amount of people who felt that it is not nearly as attractive as it once was. Here are the top-10 jobs in college football, based on their facilities, recruiting footprint, program tradition, recent success, fan support, location and ability to contend for a national championship. 1. Alabama – Nick Saban has made this the most coveted job in college football. 2. USC – The recruiting footprint is golden and the tradition and recent winning (Pete Carroll) overcomes the lack fan support. 3. Texas – The Longhorns have a great recruiting state, they’ve won it all in recent memory and the tradition is deep. 4. Ohio State – The Buckeyes own Ohio and are the only northern program to win a national title in recent years. Tradition and facilities are strong as well. 5. LSU – LSU this high? They have the best recruiting advantage of any team in the country, they’ve won national titles recently and the fan base and facilities are excellent. 6. Georgia – The state of Georgia is loaded with talent and the only thing keeping them down this list is the lack of a national title in recent years. 7. Oklahoma – Oklahoma doesn’t have a great recruiting territory but it won a national title in the last 20 years, has a great tradition and a great fan base. 8. Clemson – It’s simply amazing that Clemson is on this list because of what Dabo Swinney has done. They don’t have a great recruiting territory but the facilities are awesome, the fan base is excellent and the recent winning is only rivaled by Alabama. 9. Florida State – Here’s where the ‘Noles fit in. They can recruit their home state, they’ve won a title recently, the facilities are solid and the fan base is rabid. 10. Florida – No. 10 is a hard one because it could come down to many programs. But I’m going with Florida because they’ve won somewhat recently under Urban Meyer, Florida is a goldmine of talent and the fan base overcomes average facilities. Wait, no Michigan? No Notre Dame? No Penn State? Keep in mind, when you make a list of 10 jobs, you have to limit it to 10 jobs. Michigan hasn’t won in a long time and is hurt by being up north. Notre Dame has played for a national championship recently but has to manage a rough recruiting landscape. Penn State? The Nittany Lions haven’t won it all in a long time as well and battle the elements in recruiting as well. https://n.rivals.com/news/three-point-stance-top-10-jobs-most-talented-rosters-2020

    I wasn't sure where to put this, but I noticed that Carrington started following Kansas WRs coach Emmett Jones. For some background, he cut his teeth coaching all around Dallas (Seagoville, Lincoln, Skyline) until he was hired as the head man at Dallas South Oak Cliff in 2012. As former Texas Tech player, Kingsbury hired him for his staff in 2015, and then he was hired by Miles at Kansas before this season. He would be a great hire if Herman decides to make some moves with his staff, and recruiting DFW would be no problem.

    No. 5 Pinnacle (8-2) at No. 4 SALPOINTE CATHOLIC (9-0) Salpointe coach Dennis Bene proves to running back Bijan Robinson he has big hands too during a recent team practice. Bene, Robinson and the Lancers will face Phoenix Pinnacle on Friday night in the quarterfinals of the Open Division playoffs. Photos by Kelly Presnell / Arizona Daily Star Bracket: Open Division Where: 1545 E. Copper St. What to expect: Salpointe Catholic will host the Open Division quarterfinals as the No. 4 seed, and could do it again next week with a win and if Scottsdale Chaparral pulls an upset of top-seeded Chandler. Pinnacle is without starting quarterback and Michigan commit J.D. Johnson, who medically retired. His replacement, Devon Dampier, is a freshman — which means offensive tackle and Notre Dame commit Tosh Baker will need to be at his best to protect the inexperienced signal-caller from Salpointe Catholic’s defensive line and linebackers. Offensively, Salpointe running back and big-school rushing leader Bijan Robinson is 225 yards away from reaching 7,000 career yards. Only one other running back in Arizona high school football history had accomplished such a feat, which is Northwest Christian’s Casey Jahn (7,544) at the 2A level. Expect Robinson to crack 7K, which should provide the Lancers the win. If sophomore quarterback Treyson Bourguet can continue to spread the ball to his favorite targets Lathan Ransom, Dae han Chang, Connor Witthoft and Jackson Sumlin, then the Lancers’ offensive attack should suffocate Pinnacle, 35-27. https://tucson.com/sports/highschool/friday-night-s-high-school-football-matchups-breakdowns-and-playoff/article_d

    On Saturday, the Texas Longhorns defeated the Kansas State Wildcats 27-24 at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium in front of 97,833. While that sentence is a traditional lede, it doesn’t begin to acknowledge the significance of the final score. Put aside Texas’ remaining three games for a moment and consider that, until today, the season was split into halves. During the first four games, the Horns looked capable of continuing the skyrocketing trajectory set by winning the Sugar Bowl. But the month of October had other ideas. A youthful roster was exposed by a rash of injuries, and the Longhorns morphed from “promising” to “dismal” during a four-game stretch in which the team went 2-2. As the season turned to November, a timely bye week greeted Texas. With two weeks to heal and focus on their deficiencies, Tom Herman’s team was tasked with flipping a switch along with their calendars. Could the Horns find a winning brand of football and finish the season the way they started it? No one knew the answer with Kansas State coming to town fresh off an upset win over Oklahoma. After ten minutes of comically inept football, Kansas State led Texas 14-0. In those initial ten minutes, all of shortcomings that plagued the Longhorns throughout October were on full display. Worse yet, after an off week where Tom Herman and his charges had ostensibly worked on those habits, there they were at kickoff in the first quarter. With the season’s goals, and likely several coaches’ futures hanging in the balance, Texas’ known flaws were putting the season in a stranglehold and dictating the theme for the Story of the Season. Then pride kicked in. Herman recognized the balancing act after the game, “You know, with what these guys have been through these last few weeks and every — all the misinformation that’s been out there and said and written about this team and the attitude and togetherness of this team – teams that aren’t together, teams that don’t love each other, teams that are splintered, teams that are selfish…Teams that are all those things, they splinter, and it turns into a blowout.” Texas reeled off the next 24 points and kicked a field goal as time expired to win 27-24. In doing so, the Horns kept their chances at earning a berth in the Big 12 championship game alive. Herman acknowledged the gravity of the situation, saying “Obviously extremely proud of the win, but maybe — not maybe, but definitely more importantly, the things that this crew has been through these last few weeks, to overcome what they overcame, it was special.” In the grand scheme of the 2019 season, it is difficult to discern whether the Kansas State game will eventually align itself with the first four games or the second quartet. Whether Saturday was a springboard to a return to September’s trajectory or if it represented another iteration of consistent flaws masked by a win remains unknown. It is a fool’s errand to predict how Texas finishes their season. With consecutive road trips over the next two weeks, the Longhorns are still standing at the crossroad they were in before the Kansas State game. The obvious advantage to their position is the confidence the team gained by responding to their difficult start against the Wildcats. Whether that confidence can overcome the team’s weaknesses will determine how the season is remembered. ******************************** Each week Matt Cotcher will continue to build “The Story of the Season” as it unfolds.

    Injury update: Iowa State week

    Before all the injuries we gave OU and LSU all they could handle.....after all the injuries we could barely beat Kansas and lost to TCU. I think the injuries came into play more than we thought.

    Apparently you didn't watch the West Virginia game. That's a game we would've lost in the past, by turning the ball over repeatedly, had we not dominated them on both sides of the ball. It's that kind of toughness that prevented a game like that from turning into an NC State kind of game.
