I've been thinking a lot about next year's game against the ags. As backwards as it sounds, I like Texas's chances against a Mike Sherman team over any Franchoine team.
My reasoning is that Mike Sherman runs a pro-style offense (west coast?), and as far as our defense goes, we are able to deal with that sort of attack for the most part. However Franchoine's gimmick read option offense has given Texas fits for three years in a row. So who else thinks that the coach whom the Ags kicked out the red carpet for will fail to achieve what a bumbling-run-out-of-town coach did twice in a row? And in addition, what other factors play a big role in getting the rivalry back on track (steamrolling some aggies)?
Theres a poll too.
