If you're feeling pretty confident in the Texas offense (I am) and you think the Texas defense can stop conventional running attacks (probably), then assessing opponent QB play is paramount in reasonably predicting the rest of the season. It's very early with a lot of football yet to be played, but I've got a pretty decent sense of the landscape.
Both Texas and West Virginia come out of the bye week at 3-1, but both programs look very different under the hood. Holgo didn't flee the mountains just because he hated the night life. He knows what left the program (5 NFL draft picks, the offense) and what was coming back. Of course, Major Applewhite didn't exactly set the table for him in Houston, but let's explore that tangent elsewhere.
The bye week affords an opportunity to ask some old-school Humidor questions, so the IT Staff talks to a good friend to get some old-school Humidor answers. Plus, coaches on the road, player health, and more Inside the Humidor with the Big Cigar.
