Actually when I first saw your offensive line take the field (from the 4th row), I was amazed at how out of shape they were, like a bunch of Pillsbury Dough Boys. At that point I knew my estimate that tOSU would rush for 70 yards might be too high. As it turned out it was pretty close.

My estimate of your offense scoring 14-17 points (excluding points off turnovers) was right on, as you had 14 and would have had 17 if the kick wasn't missed. Although, if that kick was straighter Robison's hand was in the way.

24-7 bitch

Keep fishing though...you are starting to embarrass what is regarded as a classy fanbase

    So your estimate of UT's offense was what, 38-41 points off? You did say you would make UT 21-24 points favorites, right? Okay, you had the sack to show back up, but you still just want to stir the pot around here. Calling our OL doughboys? How about you just fuck off already and run back to hornfans, or wherever it is you spin your web normally to the amusement of those posters. You're giving all the great horns we've had here a bad name.

    24-7. That makes it what, 46-32 overall? In your oversimplified statistical world, I guess that means we win. Hook 'Em.

    And what a dream it was.

    While we're on a UTMNC rip-fest, how about some of these beauties?

    UTMNC;523942; said:
    His name is Michael Griffen, or didn't your watch the rose bowl last year. Are you saying Ginn wasn't shut down last year? Texas will have more speed on defense than tOSU will have on offense.

    UTMNC;523898; said:
    With only two WR , actually only one because Ginn will be shut down again, you better make TE a little higher priority.

    UTMNC;533885; said:
    And look for an improved and polished UT secondary with 3 returning starters, and a better cover corner than C. Griffin was, that being Ryan Palmer, to double Ginn when needed. Hell our linebacker can run step for step with Ginn. Texas has proved (past tense) that it can shut down anyone tOSU has, you are confusing Texas with Notre Dame and the likes.

    Then I guess your superior D-line with 4 frist round All-Americans on it is extremely overrated as out SECOND STRING line led the way for our first TD...

    :lol: That must make it even more embarrassing that the 2nd string line drove down the field for the first TD.

    I guess we were foolish to assume you could be a good loser. Looking forward to the excuses for your wildly off-base offensive predictions...
    Although, if that kick was straighter Robison's hand was in the way.
    That is the weakest excuse I've read in a long time... and I've read a lot of posts by PSU fans.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Since xray is hear to stir the pot... let's bring back some of his gems
    I certainly don't think it will be a low scoring game, just that tOSU will not break 22 points without having more than the 3 turnovers they had last year.
    What I left open was the 6 point swing due to change in venue and 3 point margin from last year, which means it will take +3 or even +4 turnovers for tOSU to play an even game with Texas. But, I didn't want y'all to get to get too discouraged.
    I didn't say the first one. Your offense is not to be feared because they are average.
    Aaron Ross already was a better cover corner that Cedric griffin, so that isn't a big deal. Huff, or more precisely Michael Griffin's vacated FS spot, is the only place we will see a dropoff. Add in that the seven returning starters all appear to have improved over last year, and you can see that the defense will be a lot better this year, baring some major injuries.
    At OT we had an All-American last year, Scott, we have one this year Blalock, we will have one next year Hills, and Ulatoski will be AA after that.

    At DT we had one last year, Wright, we have one this year Okam, and Roy Miller will be AA after that.

    At DE Crowder will likely be AA, but Robison is better. Orakpo will be AA after that. Orakpo was a freshman AA.

    At Safety we had an AA last year Huff, and we have one this year Michael Griffin. Last year we had a first year starter at safety Mi Griffin, this year we have a first year starter at safety Marcus Griffin. By the way Marcus was the better of the two in highschool at DB.

    At Corner we had one in Cedric Griffin, and this year we will have one or two Brown and Ross.

    At LB we had a freshman All-American last year Bobino, and we should have one again this year, Kindle.

    At TE we had one last year Thomas , and will have a freshman AA this year, Finley.

    We had a Heisman trophy finalist last year, Vince and we will have one this year, and the next, Jamaal.

    Since our o-line is out of shape, and our defense was a work in progress, I would really LOVE to see what you think a good team is.....

    Cause, didn't we beat Texas? Darn, what was that score again? *innocent look*

    OSU-UT most watched regular-season game since 2000

    Associated Press





    NEW YORK -- Ohio State and Texas were a hit on Saturday night.
    The top-ranked Buckeyes' 24-7 victory over the then-No. 2 Longhorns on ABC was the highest-rated regular-season game on a network since Nov. 18, 2000, when Florida State beat Florida 30-7.
    Saturday's game drew an 8.2 rating. A ratings point represents 1,096,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation's estimated 109.6 million TV homes.

    [SIZE=+2]Longhorns Insider: A UT tradition returns

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Web Posted: 09/12/2006 08:24 PM CDT

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]
    San Antonio Express-News
    [/SIZE] AUSTIN ? College football is nothing without its traditions. It's the Ohio State band dotting the "i." It's Tennessee singing "Rocky Top."
    It's Texas fans whining about their team's offensive coordinator.
    Texas A&M has its "Midnight Yell." UT has "Yell at Greg Davis."
    Until recently, it was a ritual that had gone the way of the Wishbone. It was difficult, after all, to fault Davis last year when his offense was averaging 51 points per game.
    But after UT put up just seven points in Saturday's loss to Ohio State, the boo-birds have migrated back to Austin. And boy, are they mad at Davis.
    The radio airwaves have been abuzz with, ahem, friendly advice directed Davis' way. The most common suggestion seems to be that Davis should take the Broyles Award he earned as college football's top assistant last year ? and shove it.
    Meanwhile, perusing UT on-line message boards this week is akin to reading from the Book of Lamentations:
    "I am in torment within;
    My heart is poured out on the ground;
    Why did Greg Davis abandon the run so early in the second quarter?"
    If it seems like a gross overreaction after the Longhorns' first loss in nearly two years ? well, that's a UT tradition, too.
    Far as we can tell, UT fans have two problems with Davis' play-calling against Ohio State.
    1) It was so conservative, it made Sean Hannity look like Nancy Pelosi.
    2) It wasn't conservative enough.
    Davis, for his part, is willing to shoulder blame for the Longhorns' anemic output Saturday.
    He admits the UT offense isn't as explosive as it was last season, when Vince Young made Davis look like the second coming of Don Coryell. The Longhorns, Davis said, are still hunting for an offensive identity in the Colt McCoy era.
    If Davis' play-calling seems to be scattershot, there's a reason:
    He is walking a tightrope between the need to keep things simple for his freshman quarterback, and the need to steadily ratchet up said quarterback's repertoire.
    "We're still trying to tweak and find out what fits this group of players," Davis said.
    UT coach Mack Brown, reprising his long-lost role as Davis' public defender, practically rolled his eyes this week when pressed about the play-calling.
    "I'm not going to second-guess things that aren't there," Brown said.
    Here's the thing: There could very well be some validity to all the complaints levied against Davis this week.
    But there's definitely far too much vitriol in them.
    For now, "Yell at Greg Davis" is a UT tradition probably better left in hibernation. Unless the Longhorns muster just seven points against Rice this week.
    Then, we'll talk.

    Longhorn stock watch
    A weekly look at what's up (and what's going down) in Longhorn land: Horns up: Mea culpa. Co-defensive coordinator Gene Chizik accepted the blame for every aspect of UT's defensive lapse against Ohio State, liberally sprinkling his Monday press briefing with phrases like "that falls on me" and "it starts with me." Later, he also took responsibility for world hunger, global warming and "Gigli." Horns down: The Streak. For 21 games, the Longhorns were as consistent as death and taxes. But taxes once missed Willie Nelson, and death is still struggling with its arch-nemesis, Keith Richards. It happens.
    Horns up: A Major reunion. Former UT quarterback Major Applewhite, now the offensive coordinator at Rice, will be calling plays against his old team this week. Unless he gets replaced in the booth by Chris Simms at halftime.
    Horns down: Sense of timing. Starting cornerback Tarell Brown, arrested and suspended for last week's Ohio State game, has been reinstated to the team this week. And just in time for Rice, too.
    Horns up: Derrick Johnson impressions. Quarterback Colt McCoy did a pretty good one in the first quarter Saturday, chasing down an Ohio State defender on a fumble return. "I got on the tackling chart," McCoy lamented. "I wish I wouldn't have."

    The doggy bag
    Some leftover morsels from Monday's UT meet-and-greet with the media: Mack Brown said he took a pretty good shot during Saturday's game when a play spilled from the field to the sidelines. The hit didn't seem to damage Brown's rebuilt left knee, but it did leave him with a nasty cut above his lip. ? Defensive end Brian Robison said he played in Saturday's game after a weeklong bout with pneumonia. "Saturday, I felt pretty good. Sunday, I was pretty fatigued," Robison said. ? Quarterback Colt McCoy wishes he could have one throw back from Saturday's game ? the one that hit Ohio State linebacker James Laurinaitis in the numbers for an interception. "I made a mistake, and I'm going to make more mistakes," McCoy said. ? Offensive coordinator Greg Davis said he warned McCoy before the play to beware of linebackers dropping deep into coverage. When McCoy threw the ball, "I probably said some words my pastor wouldn't like," Davis said.
