The atmosphere was solid as we sat right next to the student section near the end zone. It made it even more refreshing watching the students start to bail halfway thru the 3rd quarter. Fans were nice throughout the game as I was one of four Longhorns (or at least wearing the attire publicly) in our section. Guess they figured with the history of the UT/OSU series the past few years, you have to be careful what you say!
My main observation I noticed in the first half from the UT offense is that they ran more 5 WR sets than I have seen this season so clearly they were going to try and take advantage of mismatches with passing, however, I also think that left Colt way too open for some sacks and pressures than I would have liked. I am still puzzled why he doesn't pass it down the field more often as he missed some open WRs by dumping it short. Either way, a win is a win and our defense is going to be what wins us the BCS this year!
On a side note - What is the flavor of the month mentality with Texas A&M all of a sudden? You look at their schedule and they have lost the games they should have and won the games they should have (if you flip KSU and TT). I don't know why everyone thinks A&M has grown into some sort of dark horse team? If they can keep it to within 2 TDs of OU, then I will worry. If they get blown out like they should going against a more talented team, then they are what we thought they were. And don't hand me rivalry game. Mack will have Texas ready for the Thanksgiving Day game & they will be out for blood as they don't want to leave any doubt. I just find it humorous that all of a sudden TAMU is getting some "oohs" and "aahs" for doing what an average team is supppose to do.
