  1. What do you mean by 'pass judgement'... You mean watching games and making observations? I'm not aware only Texas fans do this. Sark has a pretty good record of training and putting QBs in the NFL. Card knows this, which is why he won't transfer. Long term he'll be a better QB by playing for Sark. Long term Texas will be a better football team for having Card as a starter. He just wasn't ready as a freshman to walk into a hostile stadium and run a new offense. That's a pretty tough assignment, but also a reality of big time football. No one is holding it against Card that he wasn't ready yet. Every Texas fan I talk to looks forward to what he'll do in the future. If you want to talk about emotions and being pissed, think about the opposite side of this... if you kept throwing Card out there before he's ready. That's a recipe to crush a young QB - destroying any confidence he has himself or fans have in his abilities. Sark is protecting him with this move, and in the press conference basically said this gives Card time to breathe. Card needs a little time to self-reflect and let last week's game become a character building experience. As opposed to throwing him back out there and maybe turning into a soul crushing experience.

  4. Good God Mike. Did you even watch the game? It doesn't matter who the QB is – the OL will not allow Sark's offense to be run. Sark's offense is not taking a snap and running for your life. But thats exactly what both QBs have to do. I'll invite you to tell the world what part of Sark's offense cannot be run by Thompson. Running like you're in mud is not a requirement for Sark's offense. Being able to both pass and run is not something that scares or bothers anyone. I mean, just lol. IMO, Arch has every right to be turned off by our idea of protection. But your idea that Thompson playing will drive off Arch is about the dumbest thing I've heard today – and thats after reading some of Depp's stuff. lol

  5. That has absolutely nothing to do with what I said. I have no idea why you bothered quoting me. Thompson has a bowl win under his belt. He's not experienced playing time that did not result in success. Card has a rather dismal performance against Arkie and what turns out to be a not a big deal performance against Louisiana. Friggin Nichols State almost beat Louisiana on the road last week. Our win over Louisiana wasn't the win we first thought it was.

  6. anyone that does not believe the QB was the biggest problem against Arky should just imagine if Colt had been the QB. Same crappy Oline and same crappy defense. I believe that Colt would have spotted and gotten the ball to those open receivers. I KNOW he would have hit the wide open deep passes, and I am sure he would have made decisive runs when all else failed. That would have allowed our defense some rest. I am not saying all this to Dog on Card. I am merely trying to point out that the QB play in that game led to many of our problems.

  7. Or Depp's assertion that Card has as much experience as Thompson in another thread. RS Freshman in his 2nd year versus a 4th year Junior who won the Alamo Bowl for us. I blame public schools.

  9. Texas will attempt to clean up a lot of mistakes on both sides of the ball when they welcome Rice to DKR on Saturday night. The Owls enter the contest at 0-2 on the season after opening with a 38-17 loss to Arkansas and a 44-7 blowout loss to Houston. Let's take a look at what to expect from Mike Bloomgren's team: Offense Let's cut right to the chase, Rice is awful offensively. The Owls are a power running team who loves to get under center and run the ball between the tackles. The problem is they struggle mightily to run the ball at all. Against the Razorbacks they averaged a horrible 2.1 yards per carry and improved to 3.5 yards per carry this past weekend versus Houston while only scoring 7 points. Quarterback is a revolving door. Rice brought in Nebraska transfer Luke McCaffrey prior to the season, but he has already thrown 3 interceptions. Fellow QB Wiley Green has thrown 3 interceptions of his own. The duo is combining to complete 48.1% of their passes. If Texas shuts down the running game, the game could get out of hand quickly. Up front, Rice has allowed 6 sacks already on the season despite being a team that has only attempted a54 passes. This should be a game where the Texas defensive line is able to control the line of scrimmage and pin their ears back on 3rd down. Neither McCaffrey or Green are much of a threat to run the ball so they will not have to worry about the QB run. Defense If Rice is to have any shot in this game, their defense is going to have to play nearly perfect and carry them. They held Arkansas in check for about a half in the season opener before the floodgates opened (with an assist from the poor Rice offense setting the Razorbacks up with short fields). They have an experienced defensive line, led by DT Elijah Garcia, who has a chance to be an all-conference type player for the Owls. Garcia will be a good test for the interior of the Texas offensive line that struggled in Fayetteville last weekend. On the backend, safety George Nyakwol is a good player and is someone to keep an eye on. The Longhorns will want to get the passing game in sync with conference play approaching, and they will have a good opportunity to do so with how Rice has looked through the first two weeks. Final Thoughts This game is more about Texas taking a good first step towards correcting a lot of what went wrong a week ago. The Longhorns have a lot to clean up and they likely won't get all the answers they need due to the quality of the opponent, but building some much needed momentum heading into conference play would certainly be ideal. If Texas is able to play a relatively clean game along the offensive line and Casey Thompson is able to consistently move the offense down the field, Steve Sarkisian should walk away from the game pretty pleased. Defensively, Texas needs to minimize the missed tackles and show some signs of life along the defensive line. The spread for for this game is Texas -26.5 so if all goes accordingly to plan, the Longhorns should be emptying the bench in the 4th quarter.

  10. Their season consisted of five games, cut short due to covid. So a 4-win season is nothing to hate on. Thompson had a great game though, didn't he? lol

  12. "Texas may not deserve him. Can you tell I'm still pissed?" You really sound like you have some type of connection to Hudson Card. And frankly, even if you say you don't, I'm not sure that I am going to believe you.

  19. This is a strawman argument that makes no sense. We aren't talking about changing game plans. Yes... Card looked to pass first, but he wasn't capable of executing the offense. We don't get points or first down because he hangs in the pocket too long. He wasn't instructed to go 3 and out every drive. Casey is going to run the same offense. However right now Casey has a better innate sense of when a play is breaking down and able to make positive yardage when that happens. One day Card will be a really good QB. However last week he didn't see the field clearly, missed wide open receivers, and didn't process info quickly enough. If Casey has to learn to hang in the pocket a little longer at times... then that's a much easier problem to solve than a freshman QB learning the speed of the college game.

  27. No, I'm using a nickname that fits. I did misspell "guys" though. Oops. With regard to QB play at Arky, neither of us know. IMO Card felt his job was pass 1st "keep your eyes upfield". If Shark tells him it's OK to tuck and run as soon as someone throws a hand grenade into the play, I'm sure he can execute that too. Again, IMO, Casey had nothing to lose and everything to gain. The game was DOA. He needed a spark to get the starting job. At the 1st sign of problems he got the hell out of Dodge. It worked, but I don't think that was game plan, just improv.

  28. LOL. What on earth makes you think Sark (shark? are you misspelling it?) thinks Thompson is the fan favorite? I mean, outside of simply performing better than Card? What do you mean "both buys?" What is Sark buying? Maybe Sark thinks Card fits a scheme better, I don't know. Neither do you. What Sark does know is Card stunk up the place and Thompson didn't. Thompson is not a run-first QB. Perhaps you feel that way because he's better at it than Card? Thompson and Card both had to run for their lives. Is Card now a run-first QB because his passing was so awful and he had to try to run on many plays? I think you betray your own thinking process by making false assumptions based on your emotional-based thinking. I have no dog in this hunt. As I have said for weeks, I want the QB who is going to win ball games. I don't care what his name is. And right now, I believe that QB is Thompson. There's no conspiracy, no "letting" anyone start (as you said yesterday). This is just playing the QB who is making plays and benching the one who isn't.

  30. All I meant is that Card has a lot of time to develop… He has a lot of upside. You seem to be taking this very personally…. Does your address have a “Lake Travis” in it by chance? EDIT - I guess you weren’t responding to me. Carry on.

  31. Also, looks like Green Bay made a huge mistake. Rodgers doesn't want to be there, and this season for them has all the potential for a toxic dramafest. They should have traded him, got the picks, and set the table for Love.

  33. I agree with your first paragraph 100%. We have 2 QBs who are “good athletes.” Both were recruited to run the Tom Herman offense. I disagree that Card is a better athlete. I think Sark went with him solely because of his arm tools: strength and tight spiral. I actually think Thompson is a better runner (though Card may be faster). Thompson is better at avoiding the rush (which is of upmost importance with this line). Thompson is much more accurate on anything over 20 yards downfield, cooler in the pocket. And.... a more vocal leader Card will be very very good. Perhaps great! He’s a freshman for crying out loud. But IMHO it’s a no brainer as to who starts and stays in the game unless the game is already decided.

  34. By naming Thompson the starter he is not going to be able to run much of his offense that got him hired here. Sadly this very well could hurt the Arch recruitment. Thompson is just not suited to run the full Sark offense.... We have some major issues to figure out.

  37. Said this in another thread, but each QB has their flaws. Reports out of practice were Casey had issues throwing INTs and Card had issues taking bad sacks. We've seen the latter play out, and I'm sure Casey's INTs are coming. But like you said above, "Developing a future NFL arm is one thing, but we must win NOW!" Casey is the best fit for the team as currently constituted, especially with the terrible O-line play we're getting. At least at this point, Casey is reacting more and playing on instinct. Not saying Card won't get there, but Casey's been in the program for years even if he hasn't been playing in games. In general, he's more seasoned, working off more knowledge and training, and he feels more confident and sure of himself, which isn't shocking.

  38. That statement is not accurate, on at least 2 balls (may have been back to back plays) the balls not only sailed long but to the right. One one of those plays you saw the WR try and turn his body around. Card has some talent, that's for sure. However without mentioning names, we've had QBs in the past that looked great in practice but not so great in games. Be that said, Casey deserves the next start in my opinion but I'm not the coach. I will root for and support whoever starts against Rice.

  39. Yeah, last night's game reminded me of Bert Bielema's borderline erotic performance and outcome. Sad, but true. I knew we were screwed when Card started the 2nd Half. When you've got a suspect offensive line, play the QB who can improvise with his feet. That ain't Card. #TeamCasey

  40. Card is not a long ball passer misses too many. Arlie QB hit his wide open long ball and he not rated as a passer. Vdo not want a QB conterversity but IMO Casey has earned a start. Rice played Arkie much closer than Texas. Then old axiom is teams improve the most in second game. This only applies to Hogs I guess,

  41. Texas looked like they were being coached by Charlie Strong and his staff. And the players played like a Charlie Strong coached team.
