Nice asswhipping to finish off the season, the Holiday Bowl has been good to us. 8 win season, just about what I predicted for a team in transition. We played the youngest team in the country, took our lumps, and maybe found our QB. I'm looking forward to next season, the D is championship level, the running game should be stellar, if Ash can maintain this is a BCS contender. Still need a playmaker at WR to go with Shipley but we should win the Big12.

Are you looking at the entire roster or the starters? The offense is very young and should be improved next year. On D, I count 4 seniors to replace, the biggest of which are the two LBs Acho and Robinson.

Oklahoma actually has a pretty young roster too, and a good chance Landry returns. Broyles, Ronnell Lewis and Travis Lewis will be big losses though.

And then there is TCU, who finished pretty strong. They have a really young D (which will have to get better, they played horrible in TCU's big games) and their offense has a lot of playmakers. WR Dawson and Boyce will be one of the best combos in the Big 12, and TCU will be in the top3 for best RBs, they use 3 different talented guys.

Starter is a loose term this year as guys have been in and out of the line up. Most of our offense are true freshman. We have a couple of guys leaving, but the talent is the secondary and Dline, and they are all F/S. We always manage to have some dominant OLBs emerge. I'm confident about next year.
ouch
Resurrect a 2 year old thread.

Everybody loves to hate us. This is the softest Texas team I can remember seeing. Someones getting fired over this, likely Diaz. You can't lose to OU like this 2 years in a row.

we don't hate Texas, we just enjoy it when their super inflated ego drops back down to earth
Mack is done. They need to start from scratch with a whole new coaching staff.

Sort of the feeling I get as well. End of the year, perhaps.
UT

what the hell mate

should be pounding NMSU
somewhere in my closet, my Priest Holmes UT jersey from way back is shaking in frustration.
Slow start, but they finished strong.

459 yards in the second half was nice to see and the defense played solid the entire game.

Bring on BYU!

Cautiously optimistic this year, but really season boils down to one game.
Just picked up Daje Johnson off waivers for my fantasy team. Is he worth it? I don't know a thing about him.

Not trying to be a dick, but that was the worst defensive performance I think I have ever watched. That's not me being facetious, but brutally honest.
Texas got more votes in rankings than BYU, lol.
