Texas By at Least 40 over North Texas


Recommended Posts

no we don't. it's august. if we win the conference with an 11-1 record, would anybody give a crap about a say, 28-10 win against UNT? conversely, if we beat UNT 49-3 and go 7-5, who cares?

 

kudos to the ags. they looked good. but it's a long way to december.

 

If we beat UNT by 18, our chances of going 11-1 are not very good.

If we beat them 49-3, our chances of going 7-5 are slim.

Come on, it's freaking UNT!

Don't really see where the Aggies win has any impact/effect on our game or season.

 

It doesn't have any impact/effect except for giving you a barometer of how good you really are.

 

One team beats South Carolina by 24. One team beats UNT by 24 (the betting line).

 

You tell me which is the more impressive win. Here's a hint. It ain't close.

yes, beating little SC by 24 would be more impressive than beating UNT by 24. we could beat UNT by 50 and the ags are going to win week 1 in public opinon. who cares? again...December is a long way off. 

 

On secong thought you are probably right. Even if Texas were to win by 60 they probably don't win the public opinion. But that's because the public won't know since it's on f-ing LHN. Hell, Texas could score a hundred and it ain't going to get that much notice.

I'm not sure why people get caught up so much in point spreads. A win is a win. Strong isn't going to come out throwing the ball around the park just so he can run the score up against UNT. Strong is going to run his offense even if that means a smaller victory. Running the score up against UNT means absolutely nothing if you are playing outside who you are. Also, who cares if the Aggys won by a significant margin. It's week one. You really think Strong is thinking about the Aggys in game, hell no.

my larger point, addressing your original post, is out point spread win over UNT does nothing to address whatever perceived problems we have. 28-10 isn't a disaster, 49-3 isn't confirmation of greatness. 

 

Let's regroup in december and see where everybody stands.

With a emphasis on a strong running game and 9, 10, 11 play scoring drives; don't see UT putting up huge numbers unless the defense helps out.  I am looking to see if the D can keep UNT from scoring and the offense is able to engineer time consuming drives ending with touchdowns, not field goals. If all that happens, it will be a very good day for UT football.

Since we are talking about future opponents is anyone watching BYU kicking ass right now? They look pretty good right now

UCONN was 3-9 last year beating Temple who was (2-10), Rutgers who was (6-7), and Memphis who was (3-9). UCONN will struggle to win 3 games this year. This is not to say BYU isn't good but UCONN is atrocious.

Between now and Oct. 18, A&M plays Lamar, Rice, SMU, Arkansas (on the road in Cowboy Stadium), at Miss. State,

and Ole Miss.  While UT plays, among others I'm counting as wins, BYU, UCLA, Baylor and OU.  Obviously, the ags

have the much easier schedule.  If they can win at Miss. State on Oct. 4, there's a great chance they could be 7-0

rolling into Tuscaloosa on Oct. 18  (based on their schedule and what they showed last night).  Considering how

much tougher UT's schedule is...doesn't seem prudent to compare UT vs. A&M game by game every week.  Of

course, if UT is undefeated by Oct. 18, I'll be thrilled!  Thrilled and amazed, because I fear that won't happen for

UT.  Hope I'm wrong and UT wins 'em all!
