    It's that time again....

    Kickoff at 2:30. ABC has the broadcast. I just hope that Musberger isn't the announcer.

    I think that this game will be better than it was last year. Having said that, I still think the Longhorns win.

    Texas- 24
    OU - 13

    OU is a 5 point dog, and has a +192 moneyline.

    Mack Brown is at least a 7 point difference in OU's favor, last year VY mitigated that with his speed, this year its business as usual. OU by a landslide and the UT fans are back to calling for his head.

    My problem isn't so much with Brown as it is with Greg Davis (offensive coordinator). Over 50% of his pass play calls seem to be 1-5 yard flat passes. He changed that style for Young, but he is back at work again at destroying any chance we have of throwing downfield.

    Definitely....Brown is fine with me, but I've never liked Greg Davis. I think he has ALWAYS been too conservative....and he calls the same plays over and over regardless of how unsuccessful they are. We hardly ever stretch the field and the only running play we run is that same sweep left or sweep right off tackle.

    VY won in spite of him, not b/c of him. He called the same broken plays every time, but VY would make something happen w/ his legs if need be. You can't expect to put your young, inexperienced players in that position and have them be very successful.

    With all that being said, I still think the Horns win 23-10. Defense should be very solid b/c all they have to worry about is stacking the line and stopping the run.

    A tip for Tuesday Night viewing watch Mack Brown's acting Debut in NBC's Friday Night Lights.
    Mack:" You kind of have the deer in the headlights look!"
    If UT loses to OU that clip will be playing 24/7 in Norman.

    Should be closer than last year's, but I think UT we glide through this one. 24-14, with one of OU's touchdowns coming in garbage time.

    Well, I was close.

    A few thoughts:

    I liked the broadcast team this time. A definite upgrade. I know a lot of guys around here don't like Paul Maguire, but I think he's funny. I've liked him since he was the color guy on Glanville-era Oiler games.

    Colt McCoy is the real deal. This guy's got some great instincts. I wouldn't be surprised if Jevan Snead transfers.

    While I'm not on OU fan by any stretch, I am an Adrian Peterson fan. Gene Chizik is the best Defensive Coordinator in college football and he had a plan for him. He had his guys out for blood in the second half. They made the difference in this game. I still hope he gets the Heisman.

    I think that Michael Griffin is a top 10 draft pick. There's a pro team in Houston that could use him if Adrian Peterson is gone.

    I'm done *****ing about Greg Davis. He actually made halftime adjustments this time. His offense works if it has good O-Linemen.


    OU fans...feel free to stop by and get some crow if you talked any trash...

    Is Bob Stoops wearing out his welcome yet with OU fans? Honest question.

    Good luck to you guys the rest of the season.

    I dissagree with your assement of tallent in the Texas secondary. The stud was drafted #7 by Oakland last year. Nathan Vasher is a very good blue collar corner for the bears. This group is athletic, no doubt. But none of them will be drafted day one. Book it. I see Texas as a three loss team this season. I'd be careful about asking for smack. It's a loooong way to thanksgiving. And this horn's fan is keeping his mouth shut.

    I know...it's Saturay night...some of us had a good time...:party:

    Reread the post before yours. Nowhere does it "ask for smack." Just gave an opportunity for those who did talk trash to give a reassessment.

    JMO... you'd be hard-pressed to find a Safety better than Griffin. The guy is usually close to the ball and makes a lot of plays. When the smoke clears, I think that he's this year's Michael Huff. Maybe better.
