Friday Night Sights: Port Neches-Groves vs. Huntsville

f it could go wrong, it did go wrong for the Port Neches-Groves Indians last Friday night. But, while watching their two players of interest, senior Texas quarterback commit Roschon Johnson and junior offensive tackle Jaylen Garth, I was still able to see a whole lot of things that went right.

Huntsville took the victory rather easily, 31-14, and the box score wasn’t pretty (17-32 for 191 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception) for Johnson, though it wasn’t indicative of his play.

Defensive/special teams Postmortem: Tulsa

I like Todd Orlando, but this isn’t getting it done. Tulsa may have only had 21 points, but they also dropped two wide open touchdowns and missed 3 field goals. They left meat on the bone and it wasn’t because of talent advantages. It was bad positional play, mental mistakes and poor situational football.

Offensive Postmortem: Tulsa

This offense is less than the sum of its parts. That’s objectively true with only 28 points on the board despite a lot of yardage generated and 21 on the board at halftime, but you really see that subjectively in game review. It’s strange to see 9 or 10 Longhorn players “win” on a given play and the offense gets a no gain or a negative play. Conversely, Tulsa had some big second half gains for their offense, where only a handful of players at critical spots “won.” Why is that?

Fridays in the Humidor – 9/7/18

There’s an interesting interplay this week with trying to get the team to play loose, not over-think, and come out playing with their hair on fire at kick off, and the staff (Tom Herman specifically) coaching them very hard this week.

Inside the Gameplan: Reassessing the 2018 Texas offense

Not everyone has been willing or capable of putting their finger on it but there was a fair amount in the Maryland game to suggest that Texas is indeed a team with a ceiling as a B12 champion in the 2018 season. A slow start, bizarre game, and three consecutive turnovers suggested this offense is in pretty poor shape. In reality, Texas was able to attack Maryland in a variety of ways that should translate to success against B12 opponents provided this team can put together a consistent performance from start to finish in weeks to come.
