One of our DBs just got run down by a Tech Olineman. Let that sink in for a minute.

Obviously I'm not worried about scoring points. I'm worried about stopping the other mother fvckers from scoring points.

We do not excel at this.
It’s a brand new scheme and only 1 non conference game. Like I said chill out. They are making some plays. We knew we weren’t going to shit Tech out.

White boy also needs a haircut.


I agree with Freeper. The O line needs to step it up.

But they shouldn't be running stride for stride with us. Our secondary doesn't seem to have improved very much. Yes, cris just picked off a pass but that was a wing and a prayer pass that he walked under. Sam has made a couple of questionable throws and is WR has bailed him out.

We've run about a half dozen bubble screens to this point, and yes, we are getting some yardage out of them, but a good team with speed will smother that play.

The line needs to start coming off the ball and opening holes. This titty fight zone blocking is too soft to wear teams out in the second half.

Sam is clearly the best athlete on the field---- and he's a QB.
I think you are going to see a lot of close games and upsets early in the season with very little practice for anyone and in some cases new coaches and coordinators
yup. Combine that with Covid and teams (like Tech) with literally not a normal practice since 2019 then you get an even more weird first few weeks.

tech has legit offensive weapons some of which have already torched UT last season. To think with finally their stud QB they are going go to not give UT a run is clueless

This is why I don’t buy Tom Herman has a big time coach. Teams lack discipline. When you watch the Saban, belichek, Meyer type teams they are all solid on special teams.

I have zero confidence in a Tom Herman run program at Texas. Texas will routinely find dumb ass ways to not put teams away. And 3-4 times a year it will be too much to overcome.

Texas will go at best 7-3 this year.
I’ll go out on a limb right now. With the Roster, and coordinators Herman has plus what is happening in the SEC right now... if Herman doesn’t get to the CFP this year it won’t happen. Everything is set up for him. Kinda like Mack with VY

Perspective-- Houston Baptist threw for 572 yards against Tech in their last game.

The two leading relievers in that game for Houston Baptist were----- true freshmen.

One kid had 5 grabs for 209 with 2tds and the other had 12 for 130 and 1 td.

It isn't going to happen. Herman is slightly above mediocre. Nothing he does is elite. I hate it and I hope I am wrong, but this point is continuously proven, even in game 42 of the TH era.

How is Cade Brewer our starting TE? That was god awful. You have to be more concerned with securing the football than hitting the ground.

I would agree. I wouldn’t say he’s mediocre. I’d call him good, because he will win big games. I think if you are lucky he will have a Mack Brown type career where everything falls in to place for him to get a title at some point.

Secondary is winded. Lack of conditioning is starting to show. If I'm tech and I score here, the next series I start throwing the deep ball.

Can someone explain to me why we have players wearing multiple sweat bands on their calves?

I said slightly above mediocre for the exact reason you listed.

Mack was an elite recruiter, elite ST coach and elite motivator. He had plenty of shortcomings, but he did those three things at an elite level. I don't see anything that Herman does at an elite level. Maybe chew bubble gum...???
