UT going to win another game tomorrow?

Not going to throw a score out, but it will be a much tougher game then the Mizzou game was IMO. OSU has a pretty good triple threat with Bryant(WR), Hunter(RB), and Robinson(QB).

I think the key will be stopping Kendall Hunter from breaking the big runs he has been racking up this year.

And yes, Texas will win!

I don't think it will be too close for long. The difference between Missouri and Texas is that Missouri has a marginally better defense than Texas Tech. Texas can get after the QB and has the athletes on defense to stack up with the WR's. Also, the game is in Austin, and that will be much different than Missouri. I think UT wins be 14+

Sooner or later the also rans from Oklahoma State are going to rise up and Bite Bevo in the a$$. There are only so many close calls before a group of guys from OSU rises up and closes the deal. And these guys, the cowboys have been very close before. I won't breath an easy breath until the final gun. I remember when they still used the gun ? I'm getting old.

It's better then it usual is, as Kansas is finding out today.

With Tech, it's more about stopping them from scoring then having them stop you.

after an INT and a fumble on consecutive possessions by McCoy the Horns get a huge stop on 4th and 6with just over 2 minutes remaining.


Follow that up with a huge 3rd and 9 conversion by the Horns with 1:42 remaining putting them 1st and goal inside the OSU 10.

Game over .... 28-24 UT. Good gameplan by Brown , kept OSU's offense off the field quite a bit. If not for the two turnovers in the 4th quarter its not as close as the final score indicates.


Texas Tech put up 63 today @ Kansas in a 63-21 route ..... next week in Lubbock will be a real shootout for all the marbles in the Big 12 South. Tech finishes the season with home games against Texas and Oklahoma St. then @ Oklahoma and home again for Baylor ..... talk about a tough stretch.

I figured it would be a close game .... but also thought it would feature a few more scores. I agree UT needed to fight for one rather than blow someone out .... Tech at home will be no joke , didnt the Horns lose to TT last season ? (@ home)

So here it is: Texas has Tech (in Lubbock), Baylor @ Austin, @KU, and then A&M in Austin. They MUST win next week. A victory next week(and I assume a W against baylor) means that Texas needs to win only 1 of the last 2 to get to the Big XII Championship game. Both wins guarantees a shot at the Natl Championship. So, this is a HUGE game. D needs to get up and COlt needs to hold onto that ball.

Today was a squeaker. Next week will be a BIG test.

I gotta say I think this was the toughest game remaining for the Horns as far as the talent on the other team. OSU has some very solid players offensively in TE Pettigrew RB Hunter and WR D.Bryant. Their QB is solid tho not outstanding and the team is well coached. I wouldnt want to have to face that team again.


Tech .... I think rely more on their system than athletic ability .... But being in Lubbock makes this another tough game.

Oklahoma vs Oklahoma St. to finish the season is going to be one hell of a game.

Kaiser Toro
10-25-2008, 06:40 PM
I felt today was the must win game as Tech still has Ok St and @OU after UT next week. I feel we could still be tripped up by KU or TAMU, but owning that tie breaker against both OU and Ok St is huge. With even one loss and a Big 12 Championship UT gets into the title game in my opinion.

I remember a couple years back KU knocking UT out of the big 12 title game .... Their schedule from OU to KU has been one of the toughest I can ever recall. Five ranked teams in a row .... Four of those having been in the top 10 at some point in the season. Two of those top 3.

OU was #1 , Mizzou #3 , OSU #6 , TT has been as high as #6. I think KU has been as high as 16. If they finish the season undefeated , they damn sure earned the right to play for the title.

The funny part about that is, A&M has beaten Texas two years in a row. If I were a Longhorn fan I would be more worried about that game than the others, because the consequences of a loss at home to A&M again would be disastrous this season.

Yea, which is EXACTLY why you should be afraid of that game. TAMU usually plays their best ball against Texas, and if we beat #1 Texas in Austin after the season we are having, it may be the worst event in Longhorn history.

DiehardChris
10-25-2008, 07:57 PM
Actually, it wouldn't be because even if TAMU wins - they still live in College Station, and I still live in beautiful Austin, Texas.

Also - TAMU's best ball wouldn't beat a half effort by this Longhorn team. I'm not the least bit afraid of that game (I was last year and the year before), and I'm also not afraid of jinxing it. I'll walk under ladders all day long wearing my Longhorn gear - I'd be more afraid of a game against the Houston Cougars.

I have to concur with the feeling that Texas will handle TT next week, and I believe that Texas is almost a lock for the Orange Bowl. Coming off consecutive wins in huge national championship-picture games, Oklahoma State seemed like the game that Texas was most likely to give away. Gundy has a talented team and a great running offense. If he'd stuck with Kendall Hunter and stopped throwing the ball I think they could've pulled off the upset. Regardless, Texas got the job done. Tech doesn't have the muscle at the line of scrimmage or the running backs to punch Texas in the face.

DiehardChris
10-25-2008, 09:39 PM
I'm not assuming ANYTHING (except for the TAMU game) as long as Colt McCoy is our greatest rushing threat. That's a dangerous game.

I am terrified of Tech, worried about KU, and dreading A&M. A&M always seems to be in the right place at the right time be it for good bounces or ints. They then cash those in and use their D to do just enough. Its a rival game. Rival games are NEVER easy.

Eh, I've seen Austin... I wasn't impressed. To your credit, though, I am not really impressed with Texas in general as far as looks go.

Hahaha, I hope that Mack Brown and his Texas team think just like you do. Overlooking the Ags could give us the edge we need to pull off the W. The more you reduce the A&M team, the worse that loss will be for you.

That's not the question. The question is how much juice do these guys have left in the tank ? They were clearly down and lethargic against OSU. They found a way to get it done. I'm sure in the past some team has faced a murders row of games like the horns have. But I don't remember it. It's got to be before my time. If they get by tech & A & M, they've still got the championship game. And then play Penn St. or bama if the BCS holds. If they can do all of that....just wow.

The 2 personal fouls on OU players who just barely tapped McCoy when he was going out of bounds were some of the more blatanly bad calls I've seen in recent years. And that was 2 calls, not just one. And they were very critical, very instrumental in that game.
With respect to the game vs O-State in Austin Saturday, there was one pass interferance call in particular which was IMO a bad call that went against the 'Pokes. It also could have been very significant in the games outcome.
I certaily hope the refs aren't crooked, but frankly few things would surprise me after the recent problem with the NBA refs. After all, we know there's a lot of money, a lot of wagering with these big college football games.

And that OU punter really got blasted on that roughing penalty didn't he? Right.

The PI call on Okie St was a bad call. But Beasley on Texas got called for a BS pass interference too. Consider it equal.

People blaming the outcome of games on refs is pathetic. You should just hold up a flag that says "You're team is better than mine & I have no argument to oppose that so I'm just gonna cry about officiating."

Texas definitely didn't play their best game.

On Defense:

The DL occupied blockers on runs & rushed the passer very well.

The LB's sucked. Norton was out of position constantly & Muckelroy got owned by Pettigrew all day. Kindle is sub-par in pass coverage & has no idea how to play leverage against the option.

The CB's were great. The safeties not so much. Thomas made a nice play by forcing the fumble on Hunter, but other than that he was average. Gideon played to his responsibilities but missed too many tackles.

On Offense:

The OL was pretty good in pass protection but opened up few holes in the running game.

The RB's were sub-par as a whole. McGee had a decent game. Ogbonnaya didn't run well & he missed a few blocks in pass protection. He was very active in the passing game though.

The WR's were poor......except for Cosby & Shipley. Two dropped passes by the young kids. Cosby played a great game. Shipley is probably guaranteed 1st team all conference after this game.

At QB, Colt did what he has done all year. Controlled the clock with the short passing game. He threw one bad pass & paid the price. He also fumbled the ball trying to fight for extra yards on a sack. Can't really fault him on that one, but when three guys are on you....just go down.



Overall, Okie St is just a very good team. But they are not as good as Texas. The better team won, but I think Okie St could be the second-best team in the conference. We will find out when they play Oklahoma.

Just for the record.....Mike Mayock of NFLn....his words not mine...stated last night that he thought OSU should hold the number four spot over Oklahoma. He believes they are clearly the better team. As you post, we'll find out at bedlam.

Anyway here's hoping for a big wind Saturday.

One other thing....I sure hope we get the non gay directors for the game from the ABC crowd. Not picking up the TT twirler/flag gurls after they score would be a sin. Those are the hardest working gurls in college football. America needs to see them. Hell, I need to see them.
