  1. What to Watch For Texas Longhorns Vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys Texas travels up to Stillwater this weekend after coming off their bye week. Though I missed watching the team play I actually am glad they had a week to rest and re-group after a pretty good showing their first three games. After seeing this team in action it’s safe to say the running game is dominant. The receivers’ play as well as David Ash performs, which has actually been pretty decent. Jaxon Shipley should touch the ball 10 times a game, Mike Davis is re-immerging as the playmaker we knew him to be his freshman year, and Marquis Goodwin has the potential to take it to the house anytime he touches the ball and his all around game has improved a lot from previous seasons. The offensive line still has some growing to do but the unit seems to get better each game and the tight end position is almost non-existent. As for the defense and special teams, the defensive ends are big time players, especially Jeffcoat. The defensive line is starting to strengthen up again and be a reliable part of the front seven. The linebackers are young/inexperienced (aside from Hicks) but have much talent and have been playing well. The secondary, thought to be the best part of the defense, has been susceptible to big plays each game but their talent is incredible and if they can become more disciplined and consistent then they could easily take over games and shut down offenses. We have still yet to see Anthony Fera play in a game but he has to be better than any current kicker Texas has used for field goals. The kick/punt returners are dangerous but we are still waiting for someone take one to the house. And on top of all of that the special teams unit is blocking kicks/punts again, which usually means the team has talent and depth in many different places across the roster. Oklahoma State has gotten the better of the Longhorns for the past two years. This program in Stillwater isn’t the OSU that many older UT fans used to know. They are stronger and continue to get talented recruits. This game could be pivotal in UT’s success for the rest of the season. Below are the different things I will be watching out for during the game this weekend. For this game I have the help of one of my friends, Peter Gonzalez (@peter_glz) who is a former intern of a Texas Longhorn sports website. He gave me some great info on the current state of the Cowboys and an idea on how the game could go. The last time we saw the Longhorns in action they pulled out a win over their SEC opponent, Ole Miss. That night in Oxford David Ash passed for 326 yards and 4 touchdowns. The running backs, led my Malcolm Brown’s 128 yards and 2 touchdowns, ran for a total of 350 yards and 4 touchdowns. The offense was almost perfectly balanced and performed exactly as they need to if they want to be a team that should be respected nationally. On the other side of the ball the defense was pretty good but after giving up 31 points (7 of these came off a kick return for a touchdown) they still have much to prove. Here are 5 things I’m interested in most for this game. (No particular order). 1. Can David Ash not only build on his most recent performance but also improve off of his performance in Oxford. He put up great stats and actually had a decent game. But a few of his longer passes were underthrown and he even admitted he needed to improve on that. I still think David Ash is a kid who will gain confidence and become the leader of the team based on his play during games. A strong game in Stillwater after a pretty good performance in Oxford would be big for Ash. Oklahoma State’s defense is better than Ole Miss but they haven’t played as well as expected so far… Sounds similar to the Longhorns. This will be a big road game for Ash. 2. Oklahoma State ranks first among the NCAA in total yards per game and points per game, as they average 686.7 yards and 62.3 points per game. It’s still early in the season, and like most OSU hasn’t played the best of teams. But they are still first in both those categories and Manny Diaz obviously has taken note of that. The defense for the Longhorns has played well but not nearly as well as most of us think the unit can play. Consistency is key because the talent and depth of the defense is as strong as any team in the nation. Everyone is still waiting to see if OSU’s QB Wes Lunt will play this weekend. Regardless, OSU still has talent on offense, especially in the backfield led by junior running back Joseph Randle. The 6’ 1â€, 200lb pack has average 6.7 yards per carry and racked up 335 yards and scored 4 touchdowns so far this season. This will be a great test for the defense against a talented running back. 3. Along the lines of the defense, Jordan Hicks and Brandon Moore won’t be making the trip to Stillwater this weekend. Though Brandon Moore has played well, his absence won’t be missed as much as Hicks, who has established himself not only as a leader for the linebackers but for the entire defense. I’ll be very curious to see how the linebackers play, specifically the reserves Kendall Thompson and Tevin Jackson, who will be see playing time that would have gone to Hicks. Jackson can lay the wood… 4. The offensive line continues to have its ups and downs but I was actually pleased with the unit two weeks ago against Ole Miss. I keep focusing attention on the offensive line because so much rides on the O-line. Texas has great running backs but if the line can’t open up running lanes then the RB’s talent becomes handcuffed and the strength of the offense takes a hit. In addition to that, if the offensive line doesn’t pass protect well enough then that just adds more pressure (literally and figuratively) to Ash that he really doesn’t need. This bye week may have helped the offensive line more than any other unit on the team. 5. The final big aspect of the game I’ll be looking out for is exactly how many touches the playmakers on offense will receive during the game. I personally want to see Marquis, Monroe, and Shipley get more touches. They all can take it to the house from anywhere on the field. Heck, even freshmen Daje Johnson could be thrown in with those guys. After three games so far I’ve been happy with how the team has played. But I still want to see improvements across the board. Texas has received a lot of national attention this past week but that attention is premature, if you ask me. There is a lot of football to be played. But I haven’t been this excited for a Longhorn team to enter Big 12 play in more than a year, and that’s way too long. The game on Saturday will be played in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:50 (CT) P.M. Notable Injuries: LB Jordan Hicks (out), DT Brandon Moore (out), K Anthony Fera (out). Join in on the conversation. What will you be looking for?

    Replacement Refs

    some serious stuff right there. Call it, maybe?

    Replacement Refs

    These replacement refs are terrible. Sure they aren't trained to ref at this level of play.... but still half of america could call a better game from their couch. http://i.imgur.com/hOrH7.jpg Tell me why that's not an interception. The thing is, at any level of football that would be called an interception... because it was an interception. the NFL and Roger Goodell should be embarrassed. He has too much power over the league as it is. Sad sad day for the league...
  4. Tampa Bay at Dallas............................41 New England at Baltimore...................under NY Giants at Carolina...........giants Philadelphia at Arizona...........Philly Chicago at St Louis.........Bradford Buffalo -3 at Cleveland........Buffalo
  5. Ash isn't the most outspoken guy. He gets much of his respect and confidence from his play. So these accolades will only help him become more comfortable in the huddle and confident in the pocket and become a better leader. Good for him.
  6. So via a newspaper ad in the UGA student newspaper, Mizzou sent UGA a "thank you" for their SEC game. Mizzou sends a “thank you” to Georgia in the UGA Newspaper | Saturday Down South Like Mizzou, I also read that the Aggies had given their thanks to the Gators, mainly those in the core to other Gator fans. But regardless what are your thoughts on these new SEC teams giving thanks to their opponents who beat them? Is it classy, sucking up, too much? Personally, I see that it is somewhat of a classy move but I think doing it in public may give them the image as if they are sucking up to the SEC a bit too much. What are your thoughts?
  7. Exactly. Giving up big plays still seems to be a problem for this team. And it's not like they aren't capable of stopping and avoiding the big plays.
  8. Love the excitement and happy for Ash. I know you don't want to hear it but I'm saying it. Ash under threw the ball. Against a better secondary he would have been picked off. The Positive is that he was throwing it deep and was confident in doing so, so I smell what your stepping in. The Negative was he got away with some big passes when he did throw them shorter than where they should have been. But he still has yet to throw an INT and is improving each and every game. Hook'em
  9. 10 Thoughts From The Texas vs. Ole Miss Game Score: Texas 66, Ole Miss 31 Who would have thought that the Longhorns were capable of scoring 66 points in any game this season? The score could have been even higher but to show respect the classy Mack Brown decided to pump the breaks towards the end of the game so the score didn’t break the 70-point mark. But regardless of the score there are a lot of positives and negatives that came from this game. The win was a big one but some of the stats skew the reality of how the game went and how certain players (Ash) played. 1. David Ash: I’m sure we are all thinking the same thing on this one. Go ahead and give Ash credit (keep reading) because he has yet to throw an interception and still managed the game well, (stick with me…) as he was 19 of 23 for 326 yards and 4 touchdowns (almost there) but WOW a lot of his deep passes (this>>>) were waaayyyyy under thrown and he should have been picked off 2 or 3 times. He still has a ways to go. Luckily his receivers always adjusted to the ball and somehow the defensive backs always seemed to get lost right before the ball made it to them. But his stats skew his actual performance and he would have had a much worse night against a secondary who actually could track the ball and defend better. I like that he was slinging it deep and had the confidence to do so, but he has to be better about leading his receivers and his accuracy. I give him a B- on the night… that may be generous. *Give Harsin/Applewhite some credit as Ash currently has the fourth best passer rating in division 1-A college football. He may still need work on his accuracy but his coaches know exactly what they can get out of him at this point. And a random note, the Big 12 has 4 QB’s in the top 5 and 6 in the top 10 in this category.* NCAA Football Stats - Full College Football Team Leaders and Player Stats - FOX Sports on MSN 2. QB Debate: So there it is folks. The Bo Wallace David Ash debate played out right before your eyes. Are you happy the Longhorns stuck with Ash? Or do you still wonder what the offense would look like had Wallace taken over? I’m still rolling with Ash over Wallace. Are you? 3. Defense: The Longhorns defense once again had an up and down night. They were able to create turnovers and even take one to the house. The defensive line also impressed with pressure on Bo Wallace. But at the same time tackling was often poor across the board and the secondary seemed out of place on some passes as they also allowed another receiver to have a big night, as Donte Moncrief had 7 catches for 144 yards and 1 touchdown (almost 2 TD’s before a video review reversed the call). But Quandre Diggs had two interceptions and Steve Edmond’s interception-touchdown was huge as it set the tone for the night and gave Ash and the offense a small cushion to start the game. Also give credit to the two defensive ends. I called them out, specifically Okafor, before the game and stated he needed to step up his play. He did just that by recording two sacks and applying pretty good pressure throughout the game. But the bottom line is this defense still has room for improvement and isn’t the defense we all think this unit is capable of being… As the Longhorns begin their Big 12 play after their bye week they will need to clean up their act if they want to help keep the W’s coming. 4. Ground Game: Malcolm Brown and the ground attack were strong all night. The Longhorns finished with 350 yards and 4 scores off of 54 attempts. Brown led all backs with 128 yards on 21 carries and scored twice. Bergeron added 48 yards on 11 carries but left with an injury (see point 10.) Once again the variety of the running styles the Horns have in their backfield showed why coach Brown wanted to shift his offense to lean more on the running game. I like it. 5. Home Runs: Marquis Goodwin, D.J. Monroe, and to some degree Jaxon Shipley and Daje Johnson are the home run threats for the Longhorns. Goodwin and Monroe both made the most of their carries/passes they got (Goodwin finished with a combined 182 yards and 2 touchdowns, while Monroe finished with 1 touchdown run.) on the night, but why on earth are they not touching the ball more? I feel like in the entirety of Mack’s tenure there are players throughout the years that have never gotten as many touches and they should have. I don’t understand it. Goodwin, Monroe and Shipley need the ball more. Daje too, but he’s a freshman and still is adjusting to the level of play. 6. Offensive Line: The line actually played pretty well. This unit is a work in progress but unlike the rebel’s offensive line they did a decent job of keeping Ash off the ground and provided him time to make his throws. Keep it up O-line. 7. Field Goals: The fact that Mack and his staff took a chance at recruiting Fera to UT and actually got him to come are incredible. Granted, we haven’t seen him kick in a game yet. But anything is better than what Texas currently has for field goals… 8. Blocked Punt: On the note of special teams, again the Longhorns were able get into the backfield and block a punt. Anytime your special teams unit plays this well & this consistently it often displays that your team has great talent and depth, and the Longhorns are finally at that point again where their depth is getting stronger and stronger with each recruiting class after a few down years. 9. 66 points? Huh?: Though it was definitely an up and down game, I was still blown away at how may points Texas was able to score. I honestly was very curious to see if this team could even break the 50-point mark this season. Though it was against a weak SEC opponent, it was still impressive and should give Longhorn fans everywhere some confidence. 10. Injuries: Jordan Hicks (Hip) and Joe Bergeron (Shoulder) left the game at different times and didn’t return due to injuries. Hopefully the injuries aren’t severe and they will be healthy after the bye week. No specific details of the injuries have been released yet. This bye week comes at a great time for Texas. They’re currently undefeated but still can improve everywhere across the board, and these two weeks should bode well for the team before they enter into conference play. There are 2 main points that keep coming back to me, though. The first is the defense and their up and down play. Individually I like the players all over the depth chart on that side of the ball. But collectively they still are making too may simple mistakes, not tackling well enough, and are giving up to many big plays. They are capable of being a stronger unit but will need to play better once they start playing tougher offenses in BIG 12 play. Second, I love how many different scoring threats the offense has. I harp on getting certain guys more touches, but I also realize that the Longhorns can spread the ball around and I love that Texas has the luxury of having about 8 players who have the potential to take it to the house anytime they touch the ball. It’s been years since any Longhorn team has had that. This entire team has the potential to be a 10+ win team but the play needs to be crisper and more consistent all over the field if they want to get there. Currently Texas is in a good spot but there is a lot of football to be played. Hook’em Twitter: @WesKCrochet Email: Wes.Sports@hotmail.com
  10. What to Watch For Texas Longhorns vs. Ole Miss Rebels The last time the Longhorns played an SEC team in the regular season was 5 years ago in 2008 against Arkansas when Colt McCoy was nearly perfect in passing as he completed 17 of 19 attempts for 185 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. McCoy also led the team in rushing that day as he ran for 84 yards on 9 attempts and scored 2 additional touchdowns on the ground. After that day Mack signed Colt to a 10 year contract and locked up his QB position for the next decade… Well ok so that last sentence didn’t happen… But the Texas team that hit the field that afternoon in 2008 was built for and around it’s QB. He was the focal point of the offense and with out him the team would crumble. This season the Longhorns’ team is built much more like many teams in Ole Miss’s SEC conference. The focus of the offense is on the running game that Mack Brown has decided to shift to. Once again here are some things I’ll be looking for during the game on Saturday night. 1) The battle of the quarterbacks: Bo Wallace was once thought to be headed to the Forty Acres to suit up in burnt orange rather than being the Longhorns opponent. Now the entire Longhorn Nation can see how Bo Wallace will stack up against Texas’ own defense and how he looks compared to UT’s starter David Ash. So far Wallace has passed for 438 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 1 interception in his first two games. Comparatively David Ash has thrown for 377 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. I personally think Wallace will struggle against the Longhorn’s defense. I know the defense has been shaky at times these first two weeks but I think they bring it on Saturday. 2) The Running Game: Last week the running backs for UT had a drop off in production after monster games the first week. If the Longhorns want to win this game against Ole Miss then the running game will need to be strong all night. On the other side of the ball Ole Miss deploys a committee style attack, much like the Horns. I liked the way the defensive tackles and linebackers have played so far but they will need to step up their game because there will be fresh legs coming into the game all night. Also Bo Wallace has shown he is a threat to run out of the pocket too, as he has 135 yards and 2 scores on the ground this season as well. 3) Anthony Fera is currently listed as “out” for the game Saturday. Ole Miss may be one of the weaker SEC teams but in an away game like this scoring points on every drive is very important so the special teams, specifically the kickers, will be something to monitor. So far both Nick Jordan and Nick Rose haven’t done anything to show they are capable of hitting long, important field goals. I’m not saying they don’t have the potential… But when on earth will Fera get healthy? 4) Defensive Ends: Stopping Bo Wallace will be one of the main focuses for the defense this week. The defensive ends need to show up and get him on the ground at least a few times on Saturday. Even if they can’t get to him on many plays they should at least provide pressure to make him move around and feel uncomfortable in the pocket. I personally want to see more from Alex Okafor. 5) Get the ball to playmakers: After being big parts of the offense in the season opener last week Jaxon Shipley, Marquis Goodwin, and D.J. Monroe combined for 6 touches… Are you kidding me? Come on Harsin. I know you are more creative than that. There’s no reason why any of those players should have less than 5 touches a game. Heck, Jaxon shouldn’t have less than 10! It’s going to be a fun game Saturday night for everyone. Ole Miss may not be the best team in the SEC but they are still an SEC team and will be fired up to have the Longhorns in town. And you know that excitement will be there on the field for Ole Miss and in the stands throughout the crowd… And outside the stadium at the Grove. I think I’ve heard more talk about how crazy and fun the Grove will be than about the game on Saturday. Prediction: Honestly it’s a bit hard to project how exactly the game will go because of the limited action that Bo Wallace has had and the fact that the Rebels are playing under first-year coach Hugh Freeze. But I think the game will remain relatively close in the first half, and then I see the Longhorns taking control of the game in the second half. Ole Miss does have talent on both sides of the ball but the Longhorns team will still be too much to handle in the end. Score: Texas 27, Ole Miss 13 What will you be watching for?

  11. I agree that there is probably some good reason as to why UT/Mack have backed off. They have too much info and resources to make an educated move as oppose to just doing this on a whim because Mack got his feelings hurt.
  12. Chicago at Green Bay ...............58 Tampa Bay at NY Giants .......... Under Dallas at Seattle ...................... Dallas Baltimore at Philadelphia ....... Baltimore Denver at Atlanta .................... Denver Washington at St Louis ............ Washington BOOM!
  13. This is an amazing story, especially for a day like this. Not only is Nate Boyer, long snapper for the Longhorns, a former Green Beret. He also never played football in high school because his school didn't off the sport. WOW! Nate Boyer of Texas Longhorns has extensive military background - ESPN Good Bless America, God Bless our troops, & Hook'em.
  14. My 10 Thoughts from the Texas vs. New Mexico Game By: Wes Crochet Score: Texas 45, New Mexico 0 The final score in this game was about what everyone expected but the way the game played out was completely different than what anyone would have expected… 1. First off, who in their right mind would have thought the Longhorns would have more yards passing than rushing and would score just as many touchdowns in the air as they would on the ground by the time the game was over? I sure as hell didn’t see that one coming. I figured they would want to open up the playbook passing wise to get Ash more experience passing the ball but not to the extent that they did. I liked it though. 2. What happened to the running game? As a unit the box score will show it was a pretty successful night on the ground as the Horns racked up 146 yards for an average 4.7 yards and 3 touchdowns. But when you break it down Joe Bergeron was the leading rushing with 49 yards and 1 touchdown on 11 attempts. Malcolm brown had a whopping 5 yards on 2 carries (anyone know if he was hurt or any explanation for that?) and the other running backs were either “ok” or produced in trash time during the game once Texas had a big lead. The offensive line looked like it was confused and struggling, and the run game was completely opposite of what it looked like last week. The running backs on this team are very talented but that doesn’t matter one bit if the offensive line can’t open up some holes (or even creases…) for the backs. I’m confused right now. 3. The defense was shaky again to start the game. In their defense it was a completely different style of offense than what they saw last week… At the same time they have the talent and potential to be one of the best, if not the best, in the nation. They need to clean up their act in the beginning of games if this team expects to win 9+ games. 4. So David Ash. He did pretty well huh? Actually I think so. Here’s my take on Ash. He is currently the best option at QB that the Longhorns have. And since Texas has moved toward more of a run first offense then Ash actually just needs to be decent enough to complete short-mid range completions when called upon and get lucky on the deep ball from time to time. Ash did that tonight. Sure he was playing a terrible defense but he out performed the running game and didn’t throw a single interception. I liked what I saw, even if the passes were mostly short-mid range throws. If he plays as well or better than what he did tonight then he will do exactly what he needs to do the rest of the season. 5. Another disappearing act for the night was D.J. Monroe. Where was he all night besides his td scamper towards the end of the game? To be optimistic, I hope that Harsin was trying to stash D.J. tonight so he can use him for more important games… I hope… 6. Why doesn’t Texas use Marquis Goodwin more and in creative ways? That’s a waste of talent to not utilize his skills set during the game. Same with Shipley. Come on now. 7. Along the lines of receivers I was happy with the way Mike Davis ran once he caught the ball. He only had 3 receptions but he made the most of those short passes by converting them into a total of 30 yards and 1 touchdown. He played well. 8. The current kickers are terrible. Get Fera healthy. 9. We all finally got to see Daje Johnson and more of Jonathan Gray tonight. Though this was against a sub par defense they both still played well and look like they will be big time players soon. 10. For anyone at the game tonight did you catch the announcer calling Jaxon Shipley “Jordan Shipley” on an occasion or two? I had a laugh at that one. I also loved seeing the Alumni Band. I was never in band but I love the UT band and tonight the half time show was stolen by an older baton twirler who was launching his baton into space and then managing to catch it as it came screaming back down to earth. He wasn’t able to catch it every time but everyone in the stadium loved his effort and the stadium erupted the times he did catch it. I know it’s very early in the season and there is still a lot of football to be played, many practices to be had, and much growth to occur but at the moment I feel as if Texas is still an 8 win team. But they do have the talent and potential to be a 10-win team again. They just need to clean their act up a bit. Hook’em. Twitter: @WesKCrochet E-mail: Wes.Sports@hotmail.com
  15. 42-10. Another big day on the ground. But i could see Mack/Harsin/Applewhite open the passing game up for Ash if the Horns get a lead by at least a few touchdowns. They want to see him throw a more variety of passes. #RISE
  16. Most people are homers of some team. Everyone should take it for what it is and read between the lines. But yes I also agree it was tragic the way the new owners of The Horn pushed out Ketch and Chip. The Horn lost a lot of fans from listening in the morning because they now have to air "Mike and Mike".
  17. A&M must have been running away from their own shadow then...
  18. I first saw this reported from Texans' beat writer John McClain of Chron.com. He was covering the Texans vs. Miami game this weekend. In an interview with Mike Sherman, the ex head coach of the Texas A&M Aggies and the new offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins, Sherman commented on Texas A&M's first game and their move to the SEC. He also managed to say he thought Texas was in Texas A&M's shadow... His comments on the SEC: “Some thought I didn’t want to go to the SEC,” Sherman said today. “I didn’t have a problem going to the SEC as long as it was for the right reasons. I did have a problem with those Aggies who wanted to go to the SEC to get out of Texas’ shadow. His follow up comments about Texas and Texas A&M: “I’ve never thought A&M was in Texas’ shadow. When they stood together, I thought Texas was in A&M’s shadow, but not enough (Aggies) realized it.” Ultimate Texans » Ex-A&M coach Sherman says Longhorns were in Aggies’ shadow David Ubben of ESPN.com responded with this: "Define "shadow" however you want, but Texas A&M's accomplishments don't measure up to Texas'. Maybe that changes in the SEC, but Texas A&M has a long way to go to catch up." Mike Sherman: Texas in A&M's shadow - College Football Nation Blog - ESPN And I respond with this: hahahaha silly Mike.
  19. Goodwin has the potential to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. Come on Harsin, get him involved.
  20. nice piece Drew*. haha but Oregon is dangerous.
  21. What to Watch For Texas Longhorns Vs. New Mexico Lobos Of course everyone wants to see the two starting running backs go wild again. And of course everyone wants to see if David Ash can improve. But here are some things beyond those I just listed that I will be looking for and you can too. Texas is coming off its 13th straight home opener as they go into week 2 against the New Mexico Lobos. Last week the longhorns saw more of a spread attack but this week the Lobo’s triple option style offense is almost completely polar opposite from Wyoming’s in week 1. Here are 5 things I’m interested in most for this game. (No particular order). 1) How will the defense, specifically the inexperienced linebackers, handle this triple option style attack? This is a great test of their discipline, ability to make a play, and tackle well. 2) I want to see if D.J. Monroe can continue to be a factor on offense. He will be a valuable weapon all season long if Harsin/Applewhite can continue to figure out creative ways to get him the ball, and if he can continue to produce. In addition to his speed, he ran with surprising physicality last game. I like it. 3) Along the lines of Monroe, Daje Johnson could see his first action as a Longhorn and Jonathan Gray could build off his limited first performance and get some significant snaps. It’s only a matter of time before Gray gets used to the game speed and turns it on. His burst is unreal. 4) I harped on the offensive line harder than most last week but again I want to see if they can continue to gel into a stronger unit. Come on Espinosa… 5) We all know how bad the kicking game was last Saturday. But let’s say Fera isn’t ready to go by week 3 at Ole Miss… Can Nick Jordan or Nick Rose actually make a long field goal? I said this in a recent post, but the difference between Fera and the other kickers could be at least 1-2 wins this season. Like the Horns, the Lobos are coming off a big day on the ground. Last week they racked up 350 yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground (just 70 yards in the air). But Texas is way too big, athletic, and talented for the Lobos to have anywhere near the same success. I expect another big day on the ground for the Longhorns. *Side Note: New Mexico didn’t have a single turnover and only had 1 penalty flag last week. That’s impressive for any team. Prediction: Texas 41, New Mexico 10 Join in on the conversation. What will you be looking for? Twitter: @WesKCrochet E-mail: Wes.Sports@hotmail.com
  22. I really would like to see if John Harris and Cayleb Jones can play well in practice or a game and move up the depth chart. Also interesting that converted DE Greg Daniels is doing well at tight end to be second on the depth chart. He must be blocking well. I wonder what type of TE he can become. Also good for freshman Duke Thomas to be second on the depth chart and get some playing time.
  23. New Mexico does have a couple of suspended players. Regardless I bet we see a better and more sound UT defense, which should lead to a better game by the horns.
