    tejasrulz reacted to Matt Cotcher in Decoding Bellmont after beating WVU   
    Charlie Strong: “You look at us offensively the way we've played the first half was unbelievable how we ran that football. We had some stalls there in the second half, and then weren't able to get the score until late in the game. But just overall very pleased how hard our running backs ran, and then just how the offensive line just opened up holes and we were able to just run the ball so well.”

    Reading between the lines – This was like a proud papa – Strong was happy for the entire offense. To see them execute what they’ve been working on in practices for months sounded like a mix of excitement, surprise, and relief all at the same time.



    Charlie Strong: “Kicking game, we know we've got to continue to improve that. We can't miss the kicks, and know the punting game we've got to improve with that.”

    Reading between the lines – It’s pretty clear at this point that Charlie Strong values consistency and dependability on the football field. He’s not getting either from the special teams unit. The other thing that’s clear by now is that if there was a solution on the roster, Strong would have found it.



    Charlie Strong: “But we know that we can really improve. We can get better, which we still have some areas where we can really improve in.”

    Reading between the lines – No rest for the weary – most of the team talked about enjoying the win for one night, not Strong. As quick as he was to recognize hard work paying off, he transitioned even faster into what the team can do better. Two words came to mind – Focused & Relentless.



    Charlie Strong: “it's always an open competition. If you can't get it done, that's why we need that. We have to have guys who can compete. In your positions, you have to understand, if you want that position, you have to play well to keep it.”

    Reading between the lines – No participation trophies in this locker room. The man changed punters in the tenth game of the season. Let that sink in for a minute…



    Charlie Strong: “The mark of a champion is being able to repeat last week's performance. Can we do that again and put it all together?”

    Reading between the lines – This was a statement saying, â€œI’m not impressed until we go do it for four quarters and do it two weeks in a row.” And, make no mistake, if they can do those things, the bar will raise again.



    Shawn Watson: “Can't say enough about what Johnathan's doing and what Malcolm's doing because they've had to be patient this year. It's really gratifying for me to see the success come their way.”

    Reading between the lines –That’s high praise for his two running backs, but, really, it’s a comment on offensive line play. Watson has a pair of top tier backs and has asked them to take one for the team while they build some semblance of an OL. For all that fans take shots at Watson about, this is one facet that should be recognized more.



    Shawn Watson: “Yeah, Ty's basically -- I think he's seeing the rush. He didn't set his feet and make the kind of throws he was making in the first half. He's having to deal with a lot of pressure, and young quarterbacks, they see a lot of pressure, they don't set their feet. It's one of the things we've got to grow him through. It's part of the process he's going through. He's got to gain confidence.”

    Reading between the lines –There is a lot more to this game than Joe Internet saying, â€œSwoopes sucks.” While fans see overall results that they don’t like, Watson sees individual plays and specific problems. It’s keeping his eyes downfield on one play, a misread on another, poor pass pro on a different play, etc.



    Quandre Diggs: “Coaches give us these great tip sheets and you know, you read those things and you watch that film and great things happen.”

    Reading between the lines – Everybody should hope that some of Diggs’ work ethic is rubbing off on younger players. Against West Virginia and throughout the season, the senior corner has played smart football.



    Cedric Reed: “I wouldn't say [this was a signature win]. It's just another win, another Big 12 win.”

    Reading between the lines – A TV reporter ran around post-game and asked every player and coach the same thing, â€œIs this the signature win that this team has been looking for?” Reed and Malcom Brown both blew his question out of the water.



    Clint Trickett: “They are one win away now from a bowl game, so they are fighting for a lot. We are too but they wanted it more a little bit in the first half and we just ran out of time in the second half.”

    Reading between the lines – Matt Leinart, Part II?

    I have no idea what Dana and the offense was doing, but give the UT defense credit. I thought Texas could run the ball to win and they did. It's times like these I'd like to be wrong.
     
    But WVU got whipped today on the field and the sidelines.
     
    Congrats the rest of the season and get to that bowl game.

    tejasrulz reacted to Matt Cotcher in Vance Bedford on alternate uniforms   
    At Wednesday's media availability, Defensive Coordinator Vance Bedford was asked if he thought Texas would consider wearing alternate uniforms. He responded with:



    "Absolutely, 100% NO! We're the University of Texas. 

    I mean, if a uniform is going to make you a player - I think when we wear our Whites, it's as pretty as any uniform out there.

    When the University of Texas walks out there, with that logo and that uniform, you know who they are. If you look at USC's uniforms, you know who they are. If you look at Notre Dame, you know who they are.

    It's nothing personal. I just don't need all that stuff. I'm just an old school guy. I'm not a young guy that needs all that stuff to say, 'Yeah, this is who I am.'

    Give me the nice, clean-cut stuff and let's go play football."

    Question is, what is WVU's mindset after the choke-job vs TCU?  Holgerson went all Guy V. Lewis and implemented a conservative game plan.  He effectively went into a stall.  Had TCU on the ropes and let it slip away.  So how does the team respond with a trip to Austin?

    I fully expect the top 10 to look like this tomorrow (with explanations included):
     
    1. Miss. St (Cinderella story . . . .)
     
    2. Auburn (Can anyone stop Malzahn's O?)
     
    3. Bama (just cause, roll tide)
     
    4. LSU (They're back)
     
    5. Ole Miss (Lost to highly ranked SEC team, so drop is minimal)
     
    6. Florida (Beat Georgia, must be a sleeping giant)
     
    7. Georgia (letdown leads to unexpected loss to SEC team)
     
    8. Tennessee (big win over highly ranked Georgia)
     
    9. Texas A&M (impressive win over powerful ULM)
     
    10. South Carolina (Played Auburn close, so must be at least top 10)
