  6. Good thoughts. My biggest concern is not pulling someone (OSU, TCU) who is clearly hurting your chances of winning. That’s my biggest beef… but you’re right, there’s no guarantee it gives us a win. I would like to find out - if there’s ever another game where the QB is overthrowing wide open receivers repeatedly. But for the first time in a long time, I’m convinced we’re moving in a positive direction. Good times ahead. Hopefully we get better play from one very important position.

  9. And we will never know that Card was a better option than Ewers. We do know Card struggles with reading beyond his first option, we know he can’t throw the long ball accurately, and we do know he’s accurate on intermediate routes and hits the WRs right on the chest but never leads the receivers. We know he can run but Sark’s offense is not geared for that? He also has a much slower reaction time so does his mobility actually help if the oline can’t pass protect in general? We also know outside of Bama, he didn’t play against the the best defenses in the big 12 and we know he played hurt in all games that he did start. Lots of unknowns in how he would’ve fared against the tougher defenses and lots of hope he gets better. Not sure he would’ve won us more games but I can understand if you think he maybe wins the same amount and maybe one more. We definitely hand off more with him at QB so that could translate to a win. What do we have with Ewers? He was supposed to be accurate with the long ball but isn’t. He leads receivers on their routes and tries to throw where only they can catch it so if they get bumped or run off route he will look very inaccurate. This happened. He can’t read beyond the first read. While faster at reading plays, he is prone to stupid Brett Favre like mistakes. He can run but will be rarely asked to. The upside is probably higher than Card’s but everything has to be working for him to be successful (he’s not one to improvise and make a play out of nothing which Card probably can do better). The risk in starting him is the larger upside which didn’t play out due to poor pass protection, a QB that looked sluggish if he struggled and seemed like he didn’t care. so does Card help us win more games? It’s a big maybe. If Ewers had played up to expectations he probably would’ve won us more games. Will playing Ewers this season likely pay off next season if he goes? You can also be sure that it will. Nothing is certain but seems like it was massive upside and limited downside by playing Ewers and limited upside and limited downside by playing Card with much more upside for next season by riding Ewers and getting him experience. Yes we are 8-4 and could’ve won more but doubtful we would’ve won more than one more game if Card was there. And that’s not a given. In my opinion, Sark made the right call even though in some of the games I just wanted us to throw a decent pass (mainly Oklahoma State).

  11. I have come to realize, the Heisman no longer goes to the best player in CFB...it now goes to the best player on the best team in CFB, a couple of weeks ago Hooker from Tenn was on everyone's short list, but down go the Vols and down goes HH and you dont even hear his name whispered.. then this Sat it was CJ Stroud's to win or lose, his team lost so will he Caleb Williams is having a great year for a streaking USC team and looks like he will win it.. Bijan is playing for a team that has gone 5-7 and 8-4 and is no doubt the best college football player in the country and probably won't get an invite to NY I still think Vince deserved it....and the winner ended up having to return the statue in disgrace

  15. Honestly some of my friends can’t stand Sark. I do not understand why because he fits this job well from a PR standpoint. Mack was good at it. Charlie just looked lost. Herman was an asshat I think Sark is going to make it. He recruits well and once our OL is matured this offense will be a beast with the right QB

  17. Can't argue with anything you stated, but would like to say that I don't think wins and losses are put on one person's shoulders. It's a team effort. The Defenses holds top 5 teams to 20 points or under and we lose, it is the Offense's fault? Offense scores 34 points and we lose, is it the Defense's fault? If you blame the OSU loss on Ewers then you have to blame Card for the TTech loss. Ewers had a bad game and Card had a good game but both lead the team to 34 points and lost. We can analyze this to death and use stats to support our sides, but in the end, we are still 8-4 with 2 QBs that have about a year's worth of game time experience each. It's up to them to take the next step and see who improves the most. In my book it's not just them. It's the whole team. I believe Offenses win games but Defenses win championships. We seem to be taking the step in the right direction these last 3 games. I'm looking forward to next year but we ain't back yet.

  28. I don't think this was a good move for Freeze. He obviously has some issues where, without real oversight, seems to explode on him. That didn't happen at Liberty because of the structure they provided.

  33. I guess that would depend on who enters the portal from the Texas side. I think Karic goes into the portal and I could see a couple of others exploring other options where they could get PT. Depth could be an issue if a handful portal.

  37. The poster then followed by posting Ewers stats from PFF on various throws by distance and zeroed in with some comments about the longest downfield throws. 20+ Yards Total - 15/44 363 yards, 3TD, 2INT Here were his comments that I found interesting. There's a common misconception that Card was significantly better than Ewers in passes 20+ yards down the field. He wasn't. It was nearly identical as far as completion %, TD's and INT's. Card was 9/25 289yards 3TD's 1INT. Card was better in the intermediate passing game 10-20 yards but only attempted it there 12 times in 3 games. Ewers went to the Intermediate pass about 8.4 times a game. There were things Card did better like scrambling and short game passing. He was sacked at nearly twice the rate Quinn was and 3 times the rate heading in to Baylor. Starting to get deep in the weeds on evaluations when we get here. Quinn got the ball out better whereas Card would be more likely to get sacked when there was defensive pressure. IMHO we are (8-4) no matter who the starter is. The upside weighed heavily in Quinn's favor.

  38. I never said he shouldn't have been replaced. In fact, I wondered why he wasn't in either of the 2 games you mentioned. I can only assume that Sark chose to stick with Ewers because he thought that was his best option. I even mentioned after one of those games that if Sark didn't replace Ewers with Card then, he's riding the Ewers train for the rest of the season. As to your point about the publicity Ewers brought, I say it's safe to say we all bought into it some. I don't recall one poster (maybe JD?) who stated something negative when he committed to us. I tend to be a positive person. Why dwell in negativity? I'd love Texas to be in the place Bama is in, having a chance for the title every year. I'm hoping that Sark will be the coach to do that just like I hoped Strong and Herman were after Brown. As far as the players, every young man on that team is doing something I could only dream about, play football for the Texas Longhorns. So yeah, I'll support them during every game. BTW, I too enjoy your sports post and I'm a huge fan of Clint Eastwood.

  39. If Ewers can further develop by looking at his 2nd and 3rd options along with the oline much improving on pass protection, then Ewers should have an amazing season next year. Both of these were missing for the offense and for us to take the next step have to happen. I’m a believer that they will but I have no idea if they will happen. If they do, we win 10-11 games next year and playoffs here we come. Good luck stopping this O. Murphy can help and is physically gifted but we need a QB that can go through the reads. We know Card can’t after 3 years. Majority of young QBs struggle with that anyways so who can step up?
