The Company We Keep


Saw a post on a FAU fan site that said Texas is in the middle of the pack among BCS conference schools.  There are 65 teams in BCS conferences.  So I checked out the records to see if that was the case.  Sadly it isn't.

Only six teams from BCS conferences have lost more games than UT this year:

Minnesota, Washington St: 2-9

Vanderbilt, Wake Forest: 2-8

Kansas, Duke: 3-7

Only eight teams from BCS conferences have worse records than UT this year:

Above plus Cincinnati, Washington: 3-6

Only fifteen teams from BCS conferences have same or worse records than UT this year:

Above plus Colorado, Arizona St, Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Purdue, Indiana: 4-6

To top that off, only two teams from BCS conferences have a longer current losing streak than UT's 4:

Vanderbilt: 5, Wake Forest: 8

The 2010 Texas Longhorns are flat out bad.  Not average, not even close.  Bad.  The company we're keeping says it all.  Can we just flash forward to 2011 yet?

I hope Rick Barnes has his kids back from last year's epic collapse, not only to have a major sport to be happy about, but to lead the way back from the brink as an example for the gridiron guys.  'Til Gabriel Blows His Horn! }-
