    That is the beauty of getting up by more than two scores. The other team can't afford to run the ball.

    Also, there was a great post a few pages back that showed Texassss'ss' running stats per drive. Texas went away from the run because it stopped working.

    FYI, today's the last day for this thread in the main forum.

    As much fun as it is to savor this victory, it's about time to move on.

    I know in the buildup to the OSU/UT game much was made of Troy's performances last year against the poorer defenses in the Big-Ten, but the point remains, since the loss to PSU (the day the 'light went on'), Troy's numbers are 139-of-207, 2291 yards, 18 TDs, 2 INTs in nine games. That's a 186.88 passer efficiency rating post-Penn State. That also includes victories over Michigan, Notre Dame, and Texas, the 3 winningest programs all-time, in a 4 game stretch. Troy has simply become a surgeon with a football, and it has nothing to do with the playcalls, the deployment, or the packages. It's just Troy learning how to watch film and committing himself to doing that after Ted Ginn Sr ripped him a new ass following the embarrassing performance in Happy Valley.

    The offensive scheme against Texas was good, and I haven't heard a soul second guessing Jim Bollman or Jim Tressel since October 2005, but that has a lot to do with Troy making smart decisions finding the open guy, and the receivers running precise routes too.

    What has really amazed me in the past nine games is seeing how well Teddy and Gonzo improvise to bail Troy out under pressure, as well as how hard Troy can throw the football while rolling out and falling away. I don't know if Troy had either foot on the ground when he began to unload on the TD pass to Gonzo in the corner of the endzone.

    And we could have scored 50 if we had stuck with the passing game. But don't give that side of the ball any credit. :roll2:

    why do we still care what he thinks? We'll never meet common ground with his logic and ours.

    In regaurds to moving the thread and moving on to the next game:
    "The key for us getting over the Texas game is to understand what the game means," wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez said. "It?s not much more than another win. We didn?t get a ring. We didn?t win a championship. There is no reason to sit back and think about it, as great as it was."

    the Horns averaged 10.3 yards per carry on 9 carries in the first quarter.
    the Horns averaged 1.8 yards per carry on 10 carries in the second quarter.

    the running game stopped working. on the TD drive, of the 72 yards covered, UT gained 44 yards or 61% in two plays, both passes... on that drive, the Horns gained 23 yards rushing on 9 carries, for a 2.56 average... not exactly world class... in fact, at that rate, the Horns would have needed 52 more carries after the TD to reach 250 yards... have a nice day.

    Texas looking for leader
    9/13/2006 12:15 PM
    By: Associated Press
    Texas football coach Mack Brown is looking for a leader -- on offense or defense, it doesn't matter.
    Texas dropped from second to eighth in the Associated Press top 25 poll after Saturday's humbling 24-7 loss to top-ranked Ohio State.
    The Longhorns apparently haven't found the right player or players to duplicate Vince Young's ability to keep things loose in the huddle and make the big play. Young led UT to a national title, then left school earlier this year for the NFL.
    AP reports wide receiver Limas Sweed may be one of the most talented players on offense. At 6-foot-5, he's a huge coverage problem for any opposing secondary, and he's shown he can make a great catch.
    Sweed said few seniors talked to the team on Sunday after the loss. He mentioned defensive ends Tim Crowder and Brian Robison. Those two combined for UT's three sacks on Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith.
    On defense, the Longhorns have looked to free safety Michael Griffin to take over the leadership void that Michael Huff left in the secondary

    I rewatched the whole game last night, and the helmet-to-helmet personal foul call was legit. Why? Go back and listen to the hit during the live play. You can clearly hear the hallow thud of helmet hitting was loud. If the mics picked it up, you know the official just as well and had no choice but the make the call. Still, you don't ratchet down Richardson for what he Herbstreit got Davie to say, you don't change a thing about how he plays.

    My understanding of the rule is a player must lower his helmet and lead with the crown of the helmet, Richardson did not do this.

    Now being the back judge who threw the flag, its very very possible thats the exact reason he threw it. But I still think its a legal hit and he didn't see the helmet to helmet from behind, rather heard it. Now this is without word-for-word knoweldge of the helmet to helmet rule, so i may be way off.

    I don't agree with that logic. I can tell you that I've heard that thud before numerous times when linemen collide, they don't call that. Sometimes helmets collide with a loud thud because it's a collision sport. It's intent that you are trying to monitor, not the fact that it happens. If you intentionally come at someone and use it as a weapon, then you get hit with the penalty, but if you penalize for unintentional contact, then you have a real quandry...what if it's the QB or the RB that causes the contact more so that the defender because of the way they approach the would-be tackler. Now, I'm an idiot, so my opinion means nothing, but I don't think you can say that since it was loud contact that its a good call. That was a horrible call in the mind of UT fans.
