Not sure about that. It's actually quite opposite. On Saturdays we are watching a team that can't move the ball. On Sundays we are watching a team that can't stop anyone.

missed fg.

There are a lot of holes on the offense. A fg would have made it an 8 point game and given some momentum to the second half.

It says "any given Saturday". That is why the system is so flawed. At least in the NFL teams can overcome getting beat by a lesser opponent once or twice a season.

Texas is just having a down year. It isn't a good thing but it happens sometimes. Gilbert has been a disappointment and they better hope that Malcolm Brown honors his verbal commitment and doesn't change to Alabama because they are still coming hard after that guy.

Would you want to play in a Greg Davis offense as a RB or for Alabama's offense?

Classic letdown after giving Nebraska the middle finger in Lincoln. It was a great win for the program and for our conference/state, but Mack better hope he can rally the troops because this loss would be the most embarassing loss in a long long time. If they can't beat Iowa State we may be talking the horns playing Texas Bowl in Reliant...or worse. That would be 3 losses and if they can't beat Iowa State at home there could be more losses to come.

This team looks unprepared, unfocused, and unmotivated. Plus you have the offseason where Georgia is going to come after Muschamp real hard after firing Richt. Texas can match the paycheck but Georgia is Will's school and he wouldn't have to wait DeLoss Dodds retires to get promoted to HC.

As long as Malcolm Brown (and the myriad of others) keeps his commitment, there is hope for 2011, but 2010 looks like its gonna be a rough time for the boys in Austin.

True. The closest he ever got to winning a NC was a 55-19 beatdown by the Trojans.

I was always amused by that even though I hated losing Peterson as a recruit. He was even on the Texas sideline when they got worked over 65-13 by OU in 2003.

I knew he wasn't coming to Austin after that game. I see it working out the same way with Malcolm Brown.

Some of Gilbert's decision making is quite poor. However, how much of this is on him and how much on his very poor receiving corp?

I mean here is who he has to throw the ball:
1. Kirkendall: overarted
2. Malcolm Williams: stone hands
3. Mike Davis: nice weapon but not a #1 receiver
4. Goodwin: See Davis
5. John Chiles: failed QB conversion

What's a playoff birth? Is that when the regular season gives birth to the playoffs?

If that's the case, then it'll be a good Christmas for you. A playoff "birth" is guaranteed every year by the NFL.

I disagree. The receiving corp is poor. One of the problems is UT likes to recruit these ATH rather than traditional Wrs.

Williams has talent but can't put it all together. He could have been the next Roy Williams but he does not concentrate enough.

I agree the O line is a big problem as they need to give the QB time. BUT, the receivers need to catch the ball. These receivers cannot run routes and their pass catching is suspect. The receivers were protected in the past with Shipley and Crosby.
