    The gaming is coming up this saturday and I beleive it will be a very very good game. However I beleive Ohio State wont be able to hold Vincent Young and the Texas offense therefore giving Texas the win 24-14

    You will then be in for a rude awakening.

    You think you have the corners to hold Holmes and Ginn to 14 points?

    I just hope this game has the makings of a classic. It is one of the best early season matchups in college football in years. Too early to call a winner but I will say this, Ohio State did themselves no favor by giving some bulletin board material to Texas. But it also helps more to talk trash when you play at home. Can't wait til Saturday.

    after both teams putting a beating on their week one opponent i'll give the edge to UT...overall they looked a lot more impressive to me...although you can make the arguement that the ragin cajuns were not up to par with ohio...obviously this is gonna be a hard hitting game...i look for it to be a close game with UT winning it in the 4th quarter...if and this might be a big IF UT wins i believe they'll win out...but if they lose i think they'll choke against OU and Tech this year and again no make it to the big XII championship

    Ohio State will win this game.

    How you ask?

    We have the team speed on the defensive side of the ball to flush and contain Vince Young, we have the best trio of linebackers in the nation, and our Db's can cover your WRs, not that it matters, Vince Young won't be getting good passes off.


    OK, we beat Michigan handily last year at home. Texas barely beat Michgan in the rose bowl.

    Texas lost Benson (top 5 NFL pick) and DJ, another first round pick... Ohio state lost.... nobody.

    We are the more complete team, I see a good game, but when Ohio state keeps Young out of the endzone, making him rely on his arm to win, our D will make and inaccurate passes thier own.

    This one is hard to pick. I think UT is the better team but the game is being played in Ohio. I still give the edge to the Horns 27-24. The Texas faithful should hope however that the game does not come down to them kicking a field goal to win it.

    Ohio St. -Home- -Ginn- -Holmes-

    Texas -Away- -Has VY- -Nice stable of Backs-

    To win, I think Texas will have to make this a high scoring affair. But this game has the looks of a Oklahoma, Texas game last year.

    I want Texas to win, but if I had to put money on it, I would go with Ohio for one reason.

    I don't believe anyone will be able to contain Romance Taylor when he lines up wideout. Vince Young's decision making has improved. He didn't beat the Cajun's this past week though. It was the 3 RBs they have Charles, Young, Romance Taylor and TE Dave Thomas. This made for an extremely fresh running game in the mid of the 3rd and 4th quarter which is what I believe will help UT win. With that combination UT has been able to put forth more of a team effort rather than keeping the ball in only two guys hands unlike much of the previous two seasons.

    Am I the only one who saw this thread title and read it as:

    #2 UT or #60 Ohio

    I was thinking "Man! Didn't Ohio State used to be good?"

    UT has arguably the best offensive and defensive lines in the country .

    Football games are won and lost in the trenches ....

    UT by 14 :texflag:

    No idea.


    Go figure, the year the Longhorns can beat OU, they have to play Ohio State.

    Texas has one of the best secondaries in the country. Yes, we have the CBs to hold Holmes and Ginn to 14 points. Will they? Remains to be seen. But we have the talent to pull it off.

    I can see that happening.

    Last year Oklahoma beat Texas A&M by just 7 points. They beat Texas by 12 points. So it would stand to reason that A&M would beat Texas, right? But they lost to Texas by 13 points.

    How do you explain that?

    Dustin Fox - "Nobody"
    Mike Nugent - "Nobody"
    Simon Fraser - "Nobody"

    It's funny that you list Cedric Benson and Derrick Johnson as the losses for Texas but you left out the biggest loss...Dusty Mangum.

    I can see that happening as well.

    Will Troy Smith be starting or is he still suspended? If he's starting, it's his first of the season. Any great defense can make a QB look incompetent at any given time. When it's your first start of the season, the odds of that happening increase.

    If he's not starting, Justin Zwick doesn't concern me.


    Still, I see Ohio State winning this one. John Cooper is long gone so the Buckeyes blowing games at home that they should win is unlikely. Combine our kicking woes and I think they win.

    Ohio State - 24
    Texas - 17

    Hope I'm wrong.

    Ohio St is ranked #4 now. Sounds like the makings of a great game. With USC's creampuff schedule, Texas can't afford to lose this game if they want to be in the hunt of a title.
