Now we're across the hump of our season, and have had a good look at our guys for the season, let's go over some numbers.
Let's look at what we're good at, and what we're not so good at...
What we dont' do as well:
Verdict: Since we don't have high Sack stats, that means our Run Defense stats are for real. It's hard to find any statistical category where Texas is not in the top 10 in the country on Defense. We've got a good argument for being the #1 defense in the country based on a number of stats.
What we do well on offense:
What we could do better:
Verdict: Ugh... I didn't expect that to be as depressing as it was. There's a lot of room for improvement on offense. Let's hope that our Post-OU revival is for real. I would imagine the numbers from Missouri/OSU would be much improved compared to before OU. We trail Texas Tech and A&M among others in almost every purely offensive statistic.
What we're good at on Special Teams:
What we're not as good at:
Verdict: Nothing surprising here. We've had some issues with our Rugby style punting and our kickoff coverage has been spotty. Otherwise, we're solid with an exceptional Field Goal kicker who can be credited with helping us over OU. Noteably absent is Blocked Kicks, which we were somewhere in the 30's in the ranking, but I think both of our blocked kicks have gone for TD's. So we're kind of good at that, but could be better. If we block 1 or 2 more, we'd be near the top of the nation.
There you go.
How are we doing?
We're the best in the country. The offense has turned a corner and I'm not scared of anybody. (53 votes)
Our offense leaves a lot to be desired, but we can win the NC without them. Defense wins championships. (65 votes)
GD still scares me. If we get to the NC game and he lays an egg, we're finished. (25 votes)
Don't count out anyone left on our schedule. Sure, they've looked like dead fish, but they'll give us their best. (25 votes)
Stats are for losers, this whole post sucks. A&M is going to take the Big 12 title and this whole season is a sham. (5 votes)
