    While watching the game tonight, what primary areas of the game should I be focused on. What are our team priorities? Can anyone enumerate those for me? Thanks in advance! Texas008

    First drive--- a fumble. Two near interceptions. A deep ball catch that almost gets our WR decapitated by a backup DB. Zero running game. A delay of game on our field goal unit. A FG.

    We've got a long way to go. Let's see how the other offense performs under Shane.

    Anybody catch pregame? I think it may be old news, but, when asked, Mack said he would listen if any program was interested. Loeb had set it up by comparing Snyder at 78 vs Mack's youthful 66 years of age.

    Shane's first series--- run for one yard. Then a sack. Then a scramble for the qb's life and the ball tossed five yards out of bounds.
    Punt.

    Mack's advice=Golden. My frustrations for last year.
    1. You don't want your leading rusher to be your QB
    2. You want to call different plays for Shane than you do for Sam.

    A different type of football today,you spread the field and look for matchups. In Royals day you had big O linemen and a plowhorse in the backfield like Campbell and LEAKS and you ran the football.

    Yep which is why Herman has to stop the musical chair mind games settle on one guy and go with it. For either guy to be successful you have to build a game plan around their skill sets. Not try to fit both guys in to keep the peace.

    I thought Texas has some good skill players but the OL will be the key to a good season.I would like to see them find a big bull running back so when you are inside the five or need a yard or two you can run rather than to throw jump passes to collin or bring in a wr to run the ball. I think he is on the team but have not found him.

    Clob, it looked to me like the defense was showing Shane a lot more looks than Sam.

    Did you see it that way or am I just seeing things that aren't there?

    Young didn’t look too bad. I like lil Jordan on the goal line. He seems to be one of those guys who can slip through the line and is tall enough to gain a couple of yards when he reaches out.

    I thought Jordan looked good also but how long will a WR last running him inside subject to a lot of pounding.I feel he will be more effective in the open space with his size,hands and speed.Maybe Texas does not have another option.

    He will only be used in certain situations. Probably get some wildcat carries.

    A few thoughts after the spring game:

    -What a breath of fresh air to have a full QB room. Remember, last season was played with just two scholarship QB's one being a true soph. and the other a true freshman. The two new frosh. QB's both show a lot of promise. Rising might have the best arm on campus right now. TOS insiders say he has the talent to be a better version of Sam. Thompson is definitely a true running threat and may be able to develop into a true dual threat QB. This is easily the best QB room in terms of experience, talent, and depth since at least 2012 with Ash/McCoy/Brewer/Overstreet, and maybe even since 2009.

    -I'ts hard to draw any conclusions on the OL and run game in any spring game but especially with that format. !st team offense split into two teams with only 8 scholarship OL having to play every snap for BOTH teams. In addition, you are missing Anderson, Hudson, and Grandy. I'll even add in J. Angilau because I think he may be physically ready to make the two-deep.

    -The first five at WR are solid: CJ, LJ, Duvy, Heard, Burt. Add in athletic young depth: Pouncey, Curtis, Eagles, Woodard, Moore and I think you've got a good unit.

    -Kobe Boyce can play

    -Having Beck and Leitao at TE will be a nice upgrade to last season's OL

    -Last year there were two areas so weak in depth that any injuries could derail the season: OL and QB. Of course, by the third game they were both in full on disaster mode: I think both units are in much better position to survive the injury bug, if it hits. However, the one unit on the team that I don't think is would be the LB unit. Herman/Orlando need to add talent and bodies to that group ASAP. Thank goodness Ayodele didn't flip to OU, AND enrolled early.

    -Overall, I think the D has a chance to be plenty good enough despite the losses of Poona, Malik, Hill, and Elliot. On O, just by default these units should see marginal improvements at some level relative to last season: QB, OL, RB, TE. The only other unit, the WR's, have enough talent and depth to be fine and maybe a strength. Despite that, I still think there is just a fairly low ceiling for this offense right now. As of now there just isn't anyone special at QB or RB and that's behind an OL that is not at an elite level at this point.

    This. I would add that most teams are downgrading at QB so this year may be a sluggfest to the top. Even with our shortcomings, I don't see a team head and shoulders ahead of us. It will be a grind and every game will count. Injuries and depth could determine the conference champ.

    Calm down guys. Our front seven is nasty, and will make a lot of lines look bad this year. Yeah we will be led by our D again. So what. Our offense will be at least slightly improved. If it was slightly better last year, we win 10 games.

    Cuero, love you bro but I'll tell you this--- our secondary will be nails-- our front seven has LOTS to prove.

    Mark my words.
