When your backup QB with a hobbled ankle has a longer run than your Heisman contender RB.....

Yea I don't think much about that.  When you drop back to pass 5-6 defenders start back pedaling opening up running lanes.  You get past the first level and there's a lot of running room.  Bijan doesn't have that happen when they hand him the ball.  

Handing off the ball with everyone keying on you is going to be a lot harder to get yards.  He broke a decent amount of tackles, made people miss, only had to go 1 yard for the TD, caught a great pass and showed great balance having to turn around to catch it, etc.  To me he did enough to stay in the Heisman race and still be considered as a front runner

That’s just a stupid comparison. Alabama D didn’t key on Card. Didn’t even have a spy on him. 
 

Card did about as well as can be expected today and showed grit and heart when injured. Seems pretty clear that he is not an elite qb and that will have a more significant impact on Bijan’s Heisman run than today’s performance if Ewers’ injury is significant.

 He just took TX to within a play of beating #1, and executed what was called until injured. the Heisman race in Austin is over. Nothing left but hype.

I guess if Ewers comes back, based on your rationale, we should put Card in at RB.  I'm sure he'd be getting 5+ yards a carry when the 'Bama defense is keying in on him.....

Ewers Chuck an Duck style didn't last long. He tosses the ball to a general area whether there is a receiver open or not on the deep ball, and only hit 1 in 1-1/4 games. His long ball game is only potential, no stats. 

IF Ewers comes back is the Million dollar question this week, the way he stayed down I'd guess not anytime soon, likely surgery for a separated shoulder.

As far as Card running, glad he FINALLY did to some degree, he was ranked right behind Bama's Young out of high school for that reason, but dual threat isn't a called play in Austin, only run for your life. He was also an outstanding receiver, so he can handle himself. In the State title game as a soph., he ran the QB draw to bring the team back, so he ain't scared.

Like that deep ball that hit Worthy in the chest in the end zone?

The majority of the Texas O-line is exactly 3.5  months out of high school. Just exactly how would you have game-planned for Bama with a young O-line? The short passing game was working exceptionally well until Ewers went out. 

Drops don't count for anyone's stats. 

The game plan started well, but obviously was changed after the QB switch. Should have stuck with it if Card was "good to go". We went conservative right away. Never attempted a 4th down. Played for FG's. 

We'll never know what might have been, but we likely will have Card against UTSA, so we'll get to see more.

Fitst Iwas wrong, Texas played a much better game than I thought they could.

Like the last time played Ala. could have won could have lost by more we will never know. I would bet the family farm Pattersonschemed the derense

Asfor as scheming Sark did a great job in first quarter. Both coaches made some bad calls then thats normal. Refs made some terrible calls and hurt both teams

I thought Card played a very good game, his injury hurt on what plays could be run.

Ifrecruits were not impressed bythis game'seffort then they never will be.

On the most conterversal play. Did the two Horns try tohurt Young? No IMO just making a football play. Like the Ala. did on Ewers. Roughfing was call edon playnot the other Thats football.

Drops ABSOLUTELY count on the QB's stats as an incomplete pass. But I'm not banging on Worthy as that pass he caught later with his helmet being almost yanked off his head was a helluva catch. 

Deep balls, even when they go incomplete, are statements to the defense that we are going to take our shots. I applaud Sark for that because it does open things up. 

Bottom line is that in order to beat Bama, you have to get 6's and not 3's. I thought the no call when Robinson (the other Robinson, not Bijan) clearly had his facemask yanked on the final drive was huge. It's first-and-goal inside the 10 instead of second and five from the 18. We may not score 6 on that drive, but maybe we do and Bama then has to get a TD for the win. 

This officiating crew was pretty terrible even with Bama getting flagged 13-14 times.

I figured it was a loss today.  I dont care for moral victories but this team fought hard and we should have won this game.  We outplayed them.

What is it with Bama knocking our QBs out.  FFS.  Had to relive the entire Colt saga all over again.

They took lessons from Kansas St.
