I think we have 3-4 losses this year. The QB play will not be good enough to beat OU, ISU, and (TCU or Tech). I expect to lose one of the first 3 games as well. Too much kool-aid atm and not enough perspective. It's probably the Alamo Bowl again or worse.

I'm a little more optimistic than you Nueces.........
I feel Sark has a staff that will morph based on the opponent we play and talent we have. I think we stop playing to the level of the competition. I feel OU will be a monster game and not sure what that holds. I don't see the other teams you listed being a sure loss. I think we go to CCG this year.

I think QB play will be better than expected. I think the O line will be pretty good. I think our defense will be the best it has been in years...


now excuse me, I am late for my kool aide transfusion....( I am on the drip)

As to how we will do this year?....I have no idea.We have a tough schedule and OU will be much better than last year. Rattler is the real deal. If OU greatly improves on defense, they will be a load. I have my doubts about that improvement, but with Mike Stoops no longer screwing the defense up, it could be better.


Doesnt alter the fact that OU sucks....

I understand the dis in calling a black man boy but I've heard of referring to athletes saying things you just can't stop that boy. Probably shouldn't say that anymore.

I think both of these QBs could easily be much better than Ehlinger. God bless Sam, but we were never going to the next level with him. His inaccuracy severely limited us. Casey already looked better than Sam ever looked in one half of football.

But looking back on his career I can't help but wonder how much better he could have been with better coaching.

Could be, but Casey had the same coaching when he had the best 20 minutes of QB play we’ve seen since Colt.
Yes, CT looked great in the Alamo Bowl but the word out of practice is that he and card are struggling somewhat with the heavy quick read rpo offense that Sark runs. Our WR's are atrocious except for Whittington. They cannot run precise routes and cannot get separation on the outside. Hermie was scheming plays to the slot which was the only wide out position that was a "throw to" option most of the time. Herman was trash. We will be paying for it this year unless we can get an outside receiver with elite speed that can rip the top off the defense. We don't have that guy and haven't for a decade or two maybe more.

Exactly what I’ve been hoping for ever since we signed Casey.
You've always had a sharp mind when it comes to secondary play. And speaking of slow footed former safeties I'm sure you've noticed that Blake Gideon is the new safeties coach. He was great when Earl Thomas was with him but his performance dropped after ET left. But you know Blake was a decent safety certainly better than GDDH or Duke Thomas.

Let me tell you a funny twitter wars story. We all remember Blake's dropped interception at TT. Anyway I looked at BG's twitter today and there were people who are STILL bitter about that dropped pic. I mean hey dudes it was 13 years ago get over it already. Guys using the f word things like if you coach the way you played well give up 500 ypg. Like I said get over it. I hope Blake turns out to be a good coach. Btw his wife is hot always an important factor for me with new coaches.
