    Utah was good, not great.  They were untested also.  I think Texas just came out and punched them and kept swinging.  

    You could see the effort by our guys for sure.  Ingram, Sam, Ossai, Graham, Adimora, etc.  Loved seeing Jaquess(sp) LB bring the old school beefy LB back for a day.

    As Griffin mentioned, we out schemed Utah.  Roach also mentioned in post game they basically learned a new defense the last few weeks.  Utah didnt seem prepared but then again we came out with a better scheme and intent.

    Great way to end the season.  Hopefully we can find consistency next year

    Utah is a good football team. 

    I keep hearing this but Utah has not beaten anyone notable.  They were steam rolled by Oregon and us the last 2 games

    Outside of Oregon the PAC12 has been terrible as a whole.  Only 3 teams have a winning record in conference play.  Seriously 9 losing records in conference play?  Even USC got steamrolled by Iowa and they were one of the 3 teams.

    We played lights out with a very aggressive defense.  My first reaction was "Overrated..." /chant.  Its either that or you have to wonder what the hell is going on.  If we can trounce Utah like that where was this team the last 6 games.

    I cut off LHN after they started "You have to be excited about next year...This is a great stepping stone"  That sounds familiar after last years Sugar bowl.

    My notes

    - Ossai was a beast.  Unleash the beast kiddo. 

    - DevDuv made some amazing catches.  You will be missed

    - Jamison has some jets.  Kind of reminds me of Ramonce Taylor

    DMAC is a good poster, but he can’t win the big one. 80% of his posts are good but he was propped up for years with two world class editors.  

    I think we need to let him go and get someone else in here.  

    It was just last year when everyone demanded we back up the money trucks and give me a contract extension!  😉

    Boy do I agree with this take!

    Everybody is young and everybody has injuries.  Some adjust others use it as an excuse.  

    Just remember the honeymoon factor.

    Everyone begged Vance Bedford to stay after year one, when he was interviewing whatever that was.  Look how that turned out.

    Everyone loved the Mehringer hire.  The Orlando Defense.  Wickline.... On and on and on the merry go round goes.

    Its just the norm to over inflate new coaches and worship them until 3 years of suckage then we cant wait to fire them.

    We are quick to make excuses with injuries, youth, blah blah until the pain threshold wears us down then we fire them and rinse and repeat this Groundhog day shit all over again.

    The truth is our OL was not improved.  Just let the results speak for themselves and ignore the fantasy hire hype.  But alas we will all do the same thing with Ash and whoever the OC is.  It just our nature as deprived fans.  Hopefully it will be different this time but leave the hype at the door. 

    The saying for us should be "fool me once shame on you.  Fool me twice....oh screw it I will let you continue to fool me for another decade."

    Stay committed to the school and not the coaches.

    If Harrell declines to remain with Helton who appears to definitely be on a 1 year deal, what does it say about the belief for Herman's future? Just does not make a lot of sense to me. Restore the Longhorn offense to a dominant level and he could write his ticket.

    I would take a pay cut to get out of California.  People in California are just weirdos.  Spray painting grass green, rolling blackouts, can never water your grass.  Plus the people kind of act like aliens.  Just flat out weird.

    We need guys that will challenge our players and help them improve as men and football players. The buddy mentality does not work. That’s why we constantly underachieve because we have players that think that they are better than they actually are. In the words of Mike Singletary “I want winners!” The only way you become a winner is by being pushed to be your best each and everyday and that’s hard coaching. Sign me up for ash, sign me up for muschamp, sign me up for someone who isn’t satisfied with just being okay, we need a coach that’s going to expect us to be the best damn D in the country. This passive coaching bull crap is why we have a secondary full of 5 star talent with 1 star results. These types of coaches still exist. Go get one of them.

    Thank god I am not the only one that sees this.

    This should be a sticky.

    Fair enough, but everyone here has been critical of Herman. The only question has become whether or not some think he should not be given another year. When you join the online dogpile of Herman criticism it gives all the appearance of you wanting him gone as well. 

    I criticize Herman, and rightfully so, but I dont think we should fire him....yet. 

    I would give him 2 more years unless next year is a complete dumpster fire. 

    BTW no I dont think making a bowl game is a dumpster fire but considering the preseason expectations, this year was shit and everyone knows it.  FFS we beat Georgia in last years sugar bowl game only to beat Kansas by 2 points.  Kansas State by 3 points.  Sorry but Kansas is 1-8 in conference and 3-9 overall.  They are no Baylor.  This team has played down to almost every opponent's level since the ou loss

    The second half of this season wasnt good and he is the HC.  My allegiance is to the school not any HC.  Hermans arrogance probably has soemthing to do with it as well.  Im fine with him being a Mensa ass as long as this team is playing up to their potential and he didnt get it done.

    Yes, Collins SHOULD be better than MIms. But he's not. 

    It seems to me you're suggesting that the problem here is the perception of the fan. Hottest hire and hottest coach – until he gets to Texas. Most talent between the coasts, but can't be coached at Texas. Even when we're given presents under the tree by Baylor (two OL who hardly ever played a down here). You have a point.

    I guess you'll have to refresh my memory. I do not remember any Baylor transfers to Texas. You said we took some of their players.


    I could be wrong but I am pretty sure Devin Duvernay got out of his LOI after the Rape U Briles incident to sign with Texas.  His brother then transferred later.


    Here it is:


    The recruiting journey of Devin Duvernay has come to a conclusion ... again.

    Duvernay, the No. 42-ranked prospect in the Class of 2016, committed to Texas over TCU on Wednesday, ending one of the most bizarre recruitments after Baylor failed to submit his national letter of intent paperwork to the Big 12 offices.

    "I'm going to Texas," Duvernay said. "I just feel like they are coming up, and feel good about Charlie Strong and his staff's plan and they are going to turn this thing around. I feel like coach Sterlin Gilbert is kind of the missing piece to help out the offense. I feel like he can add me in, and add some speed to the receiving core."

    Great post. I agree, this isnt pretty by any means and the staff isnt out of the woods but I do think something changed on the offensive side of the ball. Change for the better. Kinda fun to watch 

    Yea I have been craving this kind of effort and execution since the ou game.  Something has changed.  Even the effort is noticable which wasnt there in 1st qtr

    I was harsh on the Longhorns at the beginning of this game , but they came together and just took control of the game.  Even with this win I am still not in favor of them playing in a Bowl game .  

    I am pretty sure even the "herman can do no wrong" crowd were down on the Longhorns when it was 14-0.

    Hindsight is a beautiful thing, its never ever wrong.


    I do not agree with the no bowl game, though.  That doesnt make any sense
