-Texas is still #2 in front of ou after beating down Tech.
-If Texas plays well against a&m Thursday on national television, they can win some votes back.
-Mack will start lobbying after they beat a&m on Thursday.
-I heard some coaches don't participate in the coaches poll until the final ballot (may hurt or help).
-The computers seem to love Texas
-Texas will atleast get the Fiesta Bowl if they do get screwed. I don't really see a difference in the Fiesta Bowl and the Holiday Bowl. The only difference is the school gets more money, but I don't know how it benefits the players in any way. Another reason a playoff is the obvious answer.
-The importance of the Red River Rivalry is obiously diminishing, because Texas beat ou by 10 points and ou is about to pass them in the BCS.
-Texas might beat a&m Thursday, but a&m may still beat Texas in a way by simply being a crappy team. A win against a&m won't help them at all in the BCS unless they can win some human votes.
-It might rain on Thursday night, which may hurt the style points that are much needed against a&m.
It shouldn't matter how much you beat opponents by or who you played if the team your trying to pass beat you by 10 points. The only time it should matter is if you haven't played a team, and your trying to convince people why your team should be ahead of a team that you haven't played.
The Texas fans must have DKR rockin' Thursday night.
GO BAYLOR! BEAT TECH
COLT FOR HEISMAN!
