Same kid that had the revenge porn charges in Oklahoma last year wasn’t it??? If so, hope he gets right but had his second chance at UT

So, this kid has been busted in a stolen car. Then revenge porn text to someone at Okie Lite and the PD and AD not certain of charges on this. Now this? Time to move on and open up a scholarship. 

Yep, third strike for Ibraheem, so we'll see what he did this time.

I think charges were dropped in that incident. Still . . . 

I think if he were going to change his ways and get his priorities straight, he would have done so by now.

Well, he was stopped with others that had stolen the car they were in.

Then, he did the revenge porn text stuff to someone up at Okie Lite.  Not certain what happened there.

Now, if what Taylor Estes is reporting that he and his girlfriend were in an/a arguement/fight then he interfered in the police 911 duties of trying to figure out what went on.  If true, time to move on. Don't care about his talent.

The old mantra still stands, "We suck until we don't"

I wonder what msgs boards will be like if Texas wins the next 2 games and is sitting at 4-2?  

Imo, the Texas loss to TT was a hiccup and I still believe this.  Sure, the ghosts of the past rose up for one game on the road, but they weren't there the previous 3 games.  Shit, the last 2 times Texas played in Lubbock it took 2 miracles by Sam E. to pull out a victory.  Really not an easy place to play for this team.

Why isn't anyone on OU's doorstep calling for BV's head after losing at home to KST, a team that lost the previous week at home to Tulane?  Imo, that was a worse loss than TT for Texas.  Sure, KST plays OU tough, but can't the same be said for TT against Texas?  Previous times in Lubbock support that.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is, yes, we suck until we don't, but can't we wait until after BlowU before we start the fire Sark chant?

IMHO, this is why we got GP. Take a look at a stat like this and have him suggest adjustments to turn pressures into more sacks. Obviously something is being done right on the front end. Just need to finish. I know, easier said than done, but that's one of the reasons he was brought in.

Agree. I predicted 7-5. We can still make that. We can still go bowling. 

Someone much smarter than me said "It ain't over 'til it's over".

If recruits want to jump ship that's their right. Just keep getting good linemen and we'll be get there.

The voice of reason. Folks, take note of what he said here. Sage advice and perspective.

Winning the next two will certainly ease a lot of tension.

This is a good example of where I'm at with the losses and what we'll be watching out for the remainder of the season.

It's not the losing by itself, but a question of whether we're seeing a really bad trend that shouldn't be ignored, or a coaching staff and team learning the hard way how to win again.

One last thing I'll add is observing how Texas comes out of the gate tomorrow and if it's a noticeable uptick in intensity knowing they've backed themselves into a corner.

If that's missing, that will be more disappointing than anything we've discussed above and would suggest there are some deeper issues.

But it seems more likely we are 2-4 than 4-2 at this point.

I just don't see that.  You're entitled to your opinion, but that one game did not do anything to sway my 7-5 to 8-4 prediction for the year. 

Same thing could be said for OU.  Didn't they just give up 40+ points at home to a KST team that put up 10 points against mighty Tulane?  That must mean OU's defense is horrible.
