  1. What about 20 years ago? My point is that Texas wasn't always the Texas of the Mack Brown era. College football comes in cycles and as fans we can't have a sense of entitlement.
  2. Haha! I'm just saying, we weren't always winning 10 games every year. Neither was Bama or OSU or any of the other schools. There are cycles in CFB and unfortunately we just seem to be at the bottom of it right now.
  3. I agree with GZ. I know people want us to be competitive and win games, but the reality is simple. If a team is better than you in key positions (such as OL/DL), its going to be awfully hard to overcome that. I agree that CS could have made some better decisions at times. I also think a lot of our fans still have a sense of entitlement and the "We are Texas" attitude. Right now we need to be "Humbled Texas" because we aren't who we once were. This was ALWAYS a 2-3 year rebuilding project to me. To much had to change within the program before the guys even took a step on the field. There was A
  4. I hear you on this. I think it takes a bit of selling your soul (i.e. Baylor). With the hole we were in, it was ALWAYS going to be a 2-3 year turnaround. I do think CS left a few games on the field between last year and this year.
  5. That's exactly where I am right now. I'd rather lose making freshman mistakes with freshman, then seeing juniors and seniors continue to be severely ineffective. Inject some passion with these young kids. This may sound crazy, but I'm tired of losing the exact same way. The defense is on the field too long, OL sucks, Swoopes being indecisive and slow, after a big play we shat the bed on O, poor play calling, yadda yadda.
  6. You are right. It may be too early to say he's inconsistent. It's great to know he can boot it that far.
  7. I just wanted to drop off my 2 cents on the game. I played quite a bit of ball back in the day as a running back (having played with Vince in middle and high school). I've been in the "patience" camp as it pertains to Charlie Strong turning Texas around. I know he was/is fighting an uphill battle given the environment and players he was left in the MB fiasco. I always viewed this as getting worse before it got better and we were 2-3 years minimum away from competing with the big boys. What happened yesterday, in some ways, was expected but it still hurts when you sit through it. While we playe
  8. All of this is pure conjecture and not based on any facts. How do you know what the coaches are concerned about? Trust me when I say the coaches know their strengths and weaknesses better than anyone else. Sure, Watson as well as other coaches made mistakes last year. No doubt about it. My only question is what would you have done differently? If you can't truly understand how tough last season was on offense in a variety of way, I don't know what else to tell you. You can put lipstick on a pig but its still a pig. You can say "get creative" and "scheme around this and that" but at the end of
  9. I'm not sure where you got that from, but from what ALL the other sites (including this one) is reporting is that the QB's are getting much better in the new scheme. We don't even have our incoming 2015 class on campus yet (who are filled with possible studs). I know you hate Watson, but there are so many equations for success in a college football season, including luck. We knew this year would be a step back simply due to the talent drop off. It's no secret this team may not do well. Unfortunately its still a part of the transition. A new coach doesn't automatically = winning season. Especia
  10. Randolph, have a coke and a smile. You can hate Watson all you want, but with that offense line VY wouldn't have done much of anything. I don't care what your scheme is, if the line can't block air then you won't get very far. They weren't matched well with Arkansas. The SEC knew that and that's why we got them instead of A&M. Look back to Colts 2007 year vs 2006 and 2008. There was a nice decline due to offensive line issues. Personally I think us Longhorn fans should stop comparing our offense to everybody else in terms of scheme. We should however worry about having the right playe
  11. JB, It was absolutely necessary to simplify the offense. This is especially true when it comes to Heard (via his high school coach). Last year we were handcuffed because there wasn't a true backup QB and you can't make big adjustments mid season and expect to get big results. Simplifying the offense allows the QB's we currently have to be creative and improvise with their natural athletic ability (Hello Vince Young). I'm not saying they are the next VY, but you saw what happened when Mack and Co allowed him to use his natural instincts and abilities.
  12. He wasn't offered, he's only a candidate.
  13. I guess they should've upped the security for admin passwords!
  14. I hear you SHA. I don't think he was doubting his abilities. I believe it was more of his since of entitlement. Again, he may light the world on fire but Higs wasn't the only site posting some concerns if Heard was THE guy. He's not in high school so his state titles are moot. Gilbert had state titles as well. I'm just curious to see how this all unfolds.
  15. NTG, No this one isn't about clicks. The question was brought up in a 24 hour chat so it wasn't anything publicized. Higdon made a couple comments on the question and stated he wouldn't say anything else. I know this is probably not what us fans want to hear, but it's an honest possibilities. OB has even alluded to the staff not particularly being impressed with Heard. If he was THAT good, CS would've ripped that red shirt. He didn't mind playing Bridgewater as a freshman. I'm glad we got Locksley because it does spark competition. We also have to take a wait and see approach with Heard.
