Why does the offense and Davis bear the brunt of the criticism on this website and Akina gets a free pass? The offense is performing better than the defense this year statistically. Texas is currently 18th in the nation in yards per game - ahead of OU, BC, LSU, Florida, Arizona State, USC, and Ohio State. Texas is only 25th in the nation, however, in yards per game from the defensive side of the ball. Defense wins championships and frankly, I have much less confidence in our defense stopping the OSU attack this Saturday than I do in our offense scoring points.
