What is wrong with football team. One loss does not ruin the season. But IMO something is not right. Players wre hightly rated, and coaches have not forgoten how to coach.

Take OL coaching Wick was well thought of before Texas, Then came Hand same story. .Jury still out on Flood but he is not recruiting any better.

Maybe some of you have better ideas on what is wrong and maybe all is ok.

Could it be possible that transitioning from a new offensive and defensive scheme caused confusion and lack of focus under pressure in a very hostile environment?

We're all but hurt now, but let's wait a bit before we throw in the towel on this team and coaches.

Don't know that a win over rice is a " bounce back" game.  The 3 weeks after that is what's going to make or break this season. 

Beyond disappointed in the game plan an and in game"adjustments" that were made or not made. We all raved how this caching staff was different. That was Strong and Herman on the sideline last night.

Not excusing last night's coaching performance but it does appear to me that the cupboard is not as well stocked as some of the rankings of recent recruiting classes would suggest. Worthy may be the most skilled WR, Bijan is certainly a stud, and Card maybe but how many on offense would be lock starters for other perennial powers. How many of our defensive 2 deep would be starters as they are performing now? There is talent but too many highly rated recruits in the past 10 years have either not been developed or were too highly rated to begin with.IMO.

Entitlement attitude for the team.

Professional quality facilities, chefs/nutritionists, academic coddling, designer suits, chartered flights, etc. spoil these guys completely. I don't know if player lifestyles are any different @ Arkansas and other SEC schools. Maybe Sark and his All-Star staff just ain't tough enough.

Too much Californication in ATX, IMO.

One of the biggest problems lately is the O-line. We’re not pulling the recruits we once did. There’s some talent at the skill positions, but we need the big uglies up front to win those tough games.

Andrej Karic should be starting at one of the tackle spots, for sure.

Shocking statistic from last night's broadcast - Sark is now 0-19 when behind at halftime as a HC.

He is one of the few OL that seems to play with an attitude. 

As for your earlier post with the video, maybe we need to purchase one of the types of buses on the movie Major League and let the players ride it to all the games in TX. I kid...sort of.

Both Angilau and Kerstetter are gimpy. I'm afraid to watch the "highlights" bc the right side of the O-Line probably got blown up. All five need more fight. 

Somebody should've taken offense to the late hit on Card after the delay of game, but didn't.

Not a subscriber, care to hit the highlights?

This is from the thread.

Quick quote. "I’m friends with the parents of one of our starting players and the external influences by activist professors is real. They are at every practice, hang out with them in the locker room, and they meet regularly with them outside of their football activities. This all started towards the end of Mack Brown’s tenure and has continued up until now."

Quote: "However, they are undermining the authority of the coaches and team captains"

Damn that Matthew McConaughey. Someone tell him to stay in the classroom. The football field is no place for his activism.

If true, this is no laughing matter.  When people become more concerned with their “rights” rather than their “responsibilities”; then society suffers.   A football team is no different.

whats wrong with Horns Football ? 

 

 Unrealistic expectations from a rabid fan base...the culture on and off the football field along with that of the fan base on social media make for a volatile combination of different agendas. Is Sark the answer, that remains to be seen, will the fan base and administration allow him the time to change the on the field culture, who knows for sure

OU does not seem to ever have these problems. They just keep winning. I  can barely remember OU getting embarrassed. Horns seem to get embarrassed  regularly. Horns are making a mistake leaving the B12. Going from barely competing in the B12 to being that way in the sec isn't much to look forward to.
