Default UT Vs TT

It's early I know but it gives us a long time to talk about it. Texas is going to have to have more than a running game than Colt McCoy.

They already do. Last game was bad, but they can do it.

Texas doesn't need to change anything that they do. They are probably the most consistent offense in the country, regardless of who gets the most rushing yards.

I think this game comes down to who gets more defensive stops. And I have little confidence that that will be Tech.

Texas has been averaging 184 yards per game rushing:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/foo...xas/index.html

That is not bad, but it could be a little better, especially considering Texas typical margin of victory in their games. The scary part of that statistic is that McCoy accounts for 28% of the total rush yards. That is a bit higher than what is ideal.

Pretty much my thought as far as Texas is concerned. Don't change anything and don't get cute. Defensively get stops and get pressure on Harrell which this unit is more then capable of. They also need to keep THEIR offense on the field.

This game is not going to be as high scoring as people think it will be.

Texas is going to control the clock with the short passing game.

Tech will also move slowly because the YAC that they rely on will not be there against Texas.

I'm predicting Texas wins 35-27

I think that you're right.

People forget that TT hasn't played their tough end of the schedule and proved themselves the way Texas has. TT hasn't faced a D or an offense this season as good as Texas either.

Our running game is fine. Whitaker, Obbanaya, McGee, and Johnson can hold their own just fine. They have all year long. I'd like to see Cody Johnson get the ball more so he can pound away on the defense and keep the ball out of Tech's hands. A lot of people fail to realize that sometimes when you run a short pass game like they did last week, it is sort of like running the ball as well.

Texas should win this game. 42 to 31.

That blueprint worked well against OSU .... Their execution wasnt flawless ... two redzone turnovers almost cost them. I think we'll see much the same gameplan for Tech.

Exactly. The defensive gameplan is going to be slightly different though.

The difference is that Tech is pretty one-dimensional (less than usual though) & Oklahoma St is one of the most balanced offensive teams in the country.

well put, the tech D will wear down in the 4th like OU, not a UT fan but they are the most complete team in the country. UT D-line can get pressure without a blitz and colt is UNREAL, if he comes back for his senior year he will be the best QB UT has ever seen. alot of kids on this team that i would love to see in a texan uni. UT stamps their ticket to the bcs title game saturday night.

OSU's offense is very good .... I was impressed with them from begining to end. Their TE Pettigrew .... is 1st round material and that back .... Hunter was just picking up chunks .... I am glad they got away from the run for much of the second half or I fear the outcome may have been much different.
The Texas secondary did a good job on Dez Bryant ....


I dont expect TT to be able to move the ball on the ground near as well meaning UT can attack the Tech passing game much more .

I think if they want to win they HAVE to change it up a bit, Texas HAS to run the ball or it ll turn into a Tech game, and with Texas' young corners, they could be exposed if harrel gets too many possesions.

Who ever wins the Turnover battle wins the game. I have Texas winning 42 to 35.

I don't know about that just yet if they win. They still have to play Baylor, Kansas, Texas A&M, and then a conference title game against Missouri again most likely. That won't be easy. Texas just needs to keep their heads down and out of the news. They need to ignore everyone telling them how great they are and keep plugging away each week at a time. They can win every game on this schedule, but they'll have to be ready to execute different game plans each week. Mack and Greg Davis have to continue to have their teams prepared and have the right play calling mentality with each defense that they'll face. This schedule is far from over, and their is still a lot of work to do.

With that being said LETS HO HORNS!!!

Texas is #3 in the country in time of possession. Read that again...

There is a reason Colt never throws farther than 15 yards. It is because there is no reason to. Nobody has stopped Texas all year long.

So Greg Davis does what he does. He calls a conservative offense that eats up clock, keeping the defense rested & the opponent tired.

All Texas has to do to win is do what they do. It is Tech who will have to change their scheme if they want to win this game.

Muschamp admitted that he was scared of Dez so he was rolling Earl Thomas over to him on every play. That left Pettigrew one-on-one with Muckelroy. Not a good matchup for Texas.

Suffice it to say that he won't do that again.

I think Texas will man up with their corners & give Tech the short routes that they like. Luckily, they have four or five really athletic corners. Stay with em' & wrap up. Tech thrives on YAC. Don't let them get it. Put pressure on Harrell and hope that he gets antsy & tries to go deep when there is nothing there.

Default Re: UT Vs TT

I cant rep ya right now bah007, but I agree that it wont be a barn burner. Texas will control the clock with their consistent ground and short passing game, while Michael Crabtree and the Tech offense sit on the sideline getting cold.

Texas Tech will get its points though. Im thinking 28 or so. You know they wont be kicking 30+ yard field goals with their walk on kicker.

And then we get to Texas' defense and special teams. This is what the media forgets. Texas has amazing special teams, and the defense is 10x better than they were supposed to be. Orakpo and Miller wont make it easy on them.

Prediction: Texas 45, Texas Tech 28

OSU exploited UT's kick return team .... 5-135 .... The numbers are deceptive , there were some scarry moments.
