Are you paying attention Mack Brown and GD? Are you truly paying attention? Because if you are, 41-10 over Wyoming is a "B-" grade for the #2 team in the country on the road to a clearly inferior opponent. Moreover, giving up 20 points to www.smallcityschools.com is horrific...especially in Austin. USC did not do that nor did FL. The talk in SoCal is not that of "I hope we can catch the Horns" but more of "when we catch them." While USC must go unbeaten to accomplish said task, a one loss UT and one loss USC does not bode well for BON. While USC typically has trouble with one of the Oregon schools and the CAL game is a bit auspicious, UT must go unbeaten against TT, OUsux, and OK St. The scary game in the middle of all of this for the Horns is Baylor. They nearly got TT last season and are a better program this year compared to last. It is the letdown game on the schedule and I am sure the coaching staff is aware.
Mack, you need to pile on with class. You are going to have to win big to keep the media honks from talking USC and FL into the MNC. I am not talking about leaving Colt in and throwing while up by 40 with 4 minutes to go in the 4th ala Classless Stoops. No, I am talking about putting GG in when the game is in hand and throwing the ball down the field in case the unthinkable happens and we have an injured Colt on the sidelines. Get this kid some real game experience so he can lead if necessary. Do not be comfortable with being up by 30 and calling it a day. That will not be enough to get it done. We have to face the reality that USC and FL are the media darlings. Yes, there is a good story with Colt going for the Heisman this season coupled with two big revenge games with TT and OUsux. And isn't it is a sad state of affairs when you beat a team 45-35 and you feel you need to exact some revenge on them? To top it off, the Big XII left that tiebreaker just as it was last season. Superb morons. Just an awesome system we have in place.
So Mack, I beg of you...do not leave it to chance. When a game is in hand, put GG in there and go vertical with the passing game. If the team fails to execute that is one thing. But, to go conservative after Colt comes out could be a MNC death sentence. More often than not there is a victim of controversy with the system we have in place. Ask Auburn, USC, and UT for confirmation. Keep the Horns off of the tombstone this year please. Thank you.
