    OU leads 7-0. UT had played some good defense until two costly 3rd down penalties: a 15 yard personal foul and a 10 yard holding. Without the penalties, OU may have to punt. Instead they take the 25 free yards and knock in a td.

    Defensive holding is part of playing defense as well. I didn't see anything that impressed me.

    And now the offense is 3-and-out.

    Greg Davis play calling rears its ugly head on the UT drive. Quick pass to the left, stopped behind the LOS. Quick pass to the right, stopped behind the LOS. 7 yard pass into the middle of the field and a punt.

    They did not show the personal foul penalty so I could not see it. But, if that does not occur, there is a good chance OU is forced to punt.

    The Texas D knows the offense cant do anything so they are playing not to lose. A recipe for disaster.

    I get the impression you don't like UT.

    Nice TD run by Monroe. At least it won't be a shut-out now.

    Oklahoma needs this win if they are to make a push in the rankings. Hopefully they play like they did against FSU.

    The problem I have with Greg Davis is that he tries to force fit HIS vision as opposed to utilizing the players to their strengths. How many times have we heard that GG has a stronger arm than Colt? Yet, Davis doesn't let GG throw the ball down the field! Instead he has GG do these little dump passes that are all feast or famine plays. Let GG roll out and throw more than 5 yards!

    Texas NEEDS this game to get a reasonable bowl game at the end of the year.

    I'm a Cougar, so I don't really have a dog in the fight. I pull for most Texas teams when they aren't playing UH, though I do hate Baylor.

    I just get tired of being told how good Texas' D is when it really isn't, that's all. I still hope they win, because I hate to see Occupied North Texas win anything.

    Texas DOES have a good Defense. The issue is that it is a fast undersized D. The problem is when the offense cannot do anything, the D has to be on the field too much and they wear out. If Texas had scored tds last week, they would have forced UCLA to throw much more and it would have been a different game.

    The problem for Texas is the offense not the D.

    Sorry, I'm calling BS. From the first drive of this game, OU has been driving down the field steadily. All of their scores have been from close in. UCLA ran the ball down their throat from the start. The Texas D is overrated.

    And the offense is a problem.

    Put another way, how many long drives have they allowed in the first half?

    They mentioned earlier that UCLA only had like 60 yds of offense in the first half

    77, actually. And then after the Horns went into the locker room and rested up during halftime, they came out and gave up an 80-yd. drive, 76 of which was on the ground, down their throats, revoking their manhood. And then UCLA just kept running it, for something like 260 yards rushing.
