    Well we didn't make Murray cry like I wanted, but maybe our friends at Bama will do it. They may even make him shit his pants at this rate.

    Young was solid his freshman year, even flashed a few times. Looks like he lost confidence to me. People shouldn't sell him short. He could really be valuable if he gets his mojo back.

    You've seen more than I have that's for sure. If he's great catching it out of the backfield that certainly gives us something we need after Watson.

    Agree, except every bowl counts and you team mates are counting on you to be there where ever it is.

    They are amateurs, not professionals. And I for one hope we never change that. It's the whole freaking point. Get a free education. Get free gear. Get free food. Get free lodging. And if you get hurt get free medical attention and then use your free education to live your life like a normal person. (I'd even be totally cool with some kind of power 5 or Div 1 slush fund for per diem during the season or something like that). But if you are a player on the team, play the season. I don't like it but I can understand an exception for a first round pick in the Jimmy's Used Cars Bowl on a 6-6 team, but a 10-2 team in the Sugar Bowl? Lame.

    Thanks a lot,  Ricky.  You just singlehandedly destroyed my love for college football.  lol.
    You may see it as dollars and cents decision only, and for some,  it is.  I believe that is a decision they will regret later in life. 
    They were taught to give 100% effort and play for the love of their teammates and suddenly it's okay for them to quit when their team really needs them one last time? Right or wrong, that will leave a bad taste in the mouths of many fans who, by the way, paid for their education and training. 
    Not only do the young men miss out on the excitement of a bowl game,  but the fans pay big bucks to see a subpar team. 
    To me, the bottom line is that they quit the team one game early. I refuse to accept any other reality.

    Does anyone have the stats on career ending injuries in a bowl game? 
    They play football all their lives with the same risk,  and now can't play one more meaningful game because they may get hurt? ...and they're about to go play with the really big bad men?  C'mon man.
    If I'm a pro scout,  I take a hard look at a player who's afraid to play for any reason and unwilling to give 100% for his team.

    Baker is making an NFL player type decision.  If I were a school with a player that made that type of decision, I'd say, "Fine...now here's a bill for the pro-rated portion of the scholarship we gave you.  Pay up!"

    Big Daddy....of course you are right, but dammit!...In the end they are ALL glorified exhibition games. If he chooses to not play....more power to him, but staying out of a game...which is a damned big exhibition game at that is a sad move IMHO. These are reward games....for the players....for their schools....for their fans...for their conferences...and last bus not least...for their ability to recruit the next year.
     
    He wants to play pro ball...fine, but why not support the school that helped develop the skills to make that pro career happen?

    This is just the kind of game I think that attitude is bullshit. Kid should play. I'd be pissed if I was Georgia. It's the freaking Sugar Bowl. Show up. But I'm glad he's not

    Baker had to not play in order to keep his record of not allowing a TD intact. I think he had a two year streak going. When he looked at CJ and LJH with a bit of Duverney thrown in he simply could not chance it.
     
    I realize that this type smack is a cheap shot at a player not in the game....but when he has taken himself out of the game he has to put up with the consequences of his non participation.

    I'm just going to go and enjoy the game. It'll be the last Texas game for a while. As many have stated, Texas has nothing to lose in this game. Play a good game and "we're back". Otherwise, we're building for the future. If Texas can play it's game and keep the penalties to a minimum, we should be able to score 40+ points.
    Regardless of the game's outcome, this has been a good, exciting season.

    This has all the makings of a program defining game not unlike the Clemson come from behind victory over LSU in the Chic-Fil-A bowl in 2012.  The way I see it is that Texas has nothing to lose, but has everything to gain.  If they can play loose, free, and have fun then they have a great chance.  If they play tight and not to lose then they will get run out of the Superdome.  Here's hoping Herman can pull a rabbit out of the hat and the Horns can take the next step in their evolution.

    LJ, CJ and DD are all studs. Duverney does not miss. He never has. Like two drops. That is huge. The three of them next year should wreck shop.
