  1. Thanks Cheese....well done as always, spot on...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year , hoping we find a way to knock off the Dogs.
  2. ECheese as always thanks for the editorial penmanship. You made me feel better too....just as you say, disappointed that we didn't put them away, and show some consistency. We just have to find a way to get better. Agree the D got tired. I am interested in your take, and others, on the QB situation. Sam's stats did look good and the Fumble could happen to anyone. But those stagnant periods. I am just not convinced he can lead us to the promise land or Shane for that matter either. Put me in the camp that I think we have sufficient sample size to know that neither guy can lead us to the promise land (i.e. Conference title or top 5 or 10 birth). Either can I think be adequate in a middle of the road winning program, Either could possibly do 8-9 wins, and they could certainly do worse. Both equally have shown they can go long periods of no offense and not even a threat. Both have shown some nice plays and drives. But zero consistency. I have no idea if Rising is the answer, I hope to the big man upstairs that he eventually is. In watching the spring game, I liked his presence and awareness and quick vision and both looking and throwing receivers open....but that does not mean he is the guy. It becomes a whole different game when you aren't wearing a black jersey that protects you from being hit. PS...very frustrating we are the most amazing penalty ridden team, in that it seems we always commit them at the worst possible moments to kill our drives or to keep the opponent's alive. I remember seeing Gary Johnson profusely and very demonstrably jawing at the Tulsa QB after the 4th down stop at our 5...that was a taunting waiting to happen. Just not smart. Also seems there is no method of D against us that is called pass interference. It just does not happen.
  3. Belated Feliz Cumpleanos ECheese....Hope you had a great day......
  4. I literally could not watch the game at times.....it was unbelievable...what a great game. And the Astros never gave up....gotta tip the hat to the hated Dodgers as well...they never gave up.
  5. Great post as always Cheese... Some Random thoughts Texas the last couple of games has found a way to win a tough game. A continued big step in becoming the team they need to be. These guys don’t give up when bad things happen... Sam, moves the chains, a lost art at Texas since Colt. Whatever it takes. He knows where the chains are and finds a way to get the football past them. Man, have we sorely missed a QB that does that. Wow for the first time in 4 years Texas threw the ball over the middle. The D and the O both at times made the plays needed to win...The D may not have been pretty stat wise, but I would rather have a D that makes the badly needed stop than be stat kings. Sam is a Freshman, and will make mistakes along the way, but the guy is a leader and makes plays, has great pocket presence...he gets better when the game is on the line. It is possible he may lay an egg from time to time, this his first season as Defenses scout him, but he may be one of those that doesn’t do that. I hate fade passes on 3rd or 4th down. Loving these Horns....
  6. Can they walk down to the end of the hall and look into their football program too?
  7. Cheese, Spot on as usual.... Thanks for taking the time for the "Cheap Seats" assessments. Really well done and always look forward to them each week. Hope for a return encore next season.
  8. Echeese I take great exception to your insulting High School football that way...please apologize...
  9. I agree that Charlie is a good guy, and has shown to be a good football coach over the years On one critical side of the discipline scale, I would say he did a very ineffective job. Our penalties, killer penalties stopping our drives, extending our opponents drives, being in wrong positions, not knowing who they should be defending....continual side line penalties and warnings...fully on the coaching... Not being ready with player package shifts...burning timeouts We too often looked like the Keystone Cops (for younger posters, google it)
  10. A thousand nos, had 3 very good years 2000-2002 then 6 years of 45-51....self destructive tendencies...great announcer, needs to stay there...
  11. I think that people are looking with too much of a closed mind in today's world of Offense and Defense. People are looking for statistical domination based on past error mindsets. What we need from our defense is the right stop or stops at the right time. Which give you both the opportunity and the route to win a game. The best example I can think of is our 2005 defense which was a good defense was shredded by USC in the 2nd half of the Championship game....but when the game was on the line and they had to have a stop, they did exactly that. Bama and Saban teams have at times been shredded for yardage and points at times...but there D made the right amount of stops at the right time. There have been many games we were completely embarrassed on D, but there have also been many times with the right D stop we could have won under CSl. That is what I want from our D....
  12. Since the first football of all time was rolled out onto a football field and coaches became involved, players have threatened to quit, transfer etc, if their coach was fired. In real life, if a good coach is hired there is normally little fall out at all. Texas needs to do what is best for Texas, and deal with managing the players after that decision is made. Charley has his chance to turn things around as he should...he is teetering on a straw that broke the camels back as he should be teetering based on his performance so far. But not too late, rattling off a series of victories and demonstrative improvement will quiet the masses. But continued disasters will lead to his demise. An embarrassing performance today could force some hands....at the same time an impressive one will begin the process of quieting critics. It is in his control.
  13. Cheese, excellent job, maybe your best of the season.... I too am happy we won and only want the best for CFS going forward. I have thought he should get one more season, no matter how this game turned out. One of my main concerns is that over the last 2 seasons, in at least 80-90 pct of the games, when the other team adjusts we have no answer (that is O or D). The wildcat yesterday was simply another dangerous example of just that....I think that Briles bailed us out a couple of times when he brought Hawthorne back in near the redzone....after they were making 8-12 yards per play down to the RZ....Once they had to settle for a field goal... It makes me worry what will happen when we have talent and maturity...does that still raise its head in big games? On O, still the patterns and style of our O play calls do not fit Heard's talent. Slow developing routes are not to his talent. And he will never contribute if we don't change that. Thanks again for the post
