We had 26 MT’s yesterday and that’s attempting to give the benefit of the doubt when possible. I couldn’t determine the amount of busted coverages but I’m pretty sure it was close to double figures. Our DT’s played well but still need to come off blocks a hair quicker and finish the pass rush with a sack. The two gunslingers might make a few mistakes but they also make plays at 100-mph.
We may spend adequate time on teaching schemes and plays but we would be hard pressed to convince anybody still breathing that we stress assignments and fundamentals worth a kiss my butt.
Always take the more pleasant report first so here you are. We are still far from consistent and still managed to rack up over 40 points and probably would have scored more if we had eliminated the pass. They couldn’t stop the run one ounce.
It’s obvious we were missing a few key ingredients in our offensive arsenal but the end result was still a positive as we go forward. We played very well at spots but getting a few starters back will really help the cause. We had a chance to see how our depth would perform and it will be interesting how that stacks up in the future. Some took full advantage of their opportunity but others might have been less than impressive. It was a solid effort and a nice win.
Wow. Clean up a few drops, a few bad snaps, a few missed blocks, a few off target throws and Texas might be mistaken for an offensive football team. That was pure fun. The only thing that would have made it better for me would have been more deep throws.
I have a few strong feelings about this season so figured might as well throw a few thoughts out there. I would like to start with my gut feeling concerning the win total — I think 10 is the bottom line and feel strongly that we win more than 10.
Texas went to Waco and upset No. 12 Baylor to finish out 2015. Here are my grades after UT’s 23-17 win at McLane Stadium on Saturday.
Here are the grades after UT’s 48-45 loss to Texas Tech on Thanksgiving night from DKR.
It was fun to watch a game where we made the big plays. It’s always exciting to be the winning offense that scores half a hundred and everybody gets to play.
The grades are in from Ames after UT’s 24-0 loss to Iowa State on Saturday. A handful should be prepared for summer school.
