You posted after work hours on a Friday night looking for comments by Monday morning?  I can't speak for anyone else, but this morning is the first time I've logged onto a computer since finishing work on Friday afternoon.  And you know, I actually had a few hours of real work to do this morning... :)

The LSU game is huge for you guys.  You need not to get off to a slow start this year.

No kidding.  I'm glad we're playing a team with no pulse as the opener.  I mean, Maryland was SUPPOSED to have no pulse, but we see what happened there.  In each of the past two seasons, I think that if you reverse the first two games for Texas, then the Horns go 2-0 each season and 2-0 against Maryland.  There's a reason so many teams schedule a total cupcake as the season opener.  ALTHOUGH, the Horns did struggle some with Tulsa in game 2 last year, so perhaps not...

Anyway, yeah, LSU will be a huge game for Texas, obviously.  They're extremely talented, easily in the top 2 talent-wise we'll play all season along with OU.  But I'm not completely sold on their coaching.  Time will tell I suppose.

Yes, those two losses to Maryland were both incomprehensible and damaging.  Hard to believe that the same Texas team that lost to the Terps in the opener beat Georgia in the Sugar Bowl to close out last season.

Confidence was key.  Hopefully we can finally carry over some of that from season to season.  If Texas doesn't come out and blast LaTech in the season opener, I'll be extremely disappointed.

Early betting line has Texas as a 2.5 under dog

That looks about right

Wouldnt surprise me to see this game go overtime

Lets see all we gotta do is arrange for BEVO to kick Mike's (their Tiger) ass just before game time

Hmmm.  If the fight were in the open, I think my money would be on the tiger.

I love Todd Orlando's defense. I think it's the defensive analog to Mike Leach's frantic offenses. Lots of fast moving, athletic people who never stay still. It's the perfect antidote to the Big 12's OC in the sky radioing hot read audibles to the sideline offense.

However, it only works when everyone's on the same page. For both Maryland games, Texas had several players out or suspended. The replacements were brand newbies who, despite their talent, ended up turning in circles wondering about their assignment too many times.

I'm optimistic Texas now has enough depth that the players taking the field are indoctrinated into the defensive tactics and won't have any many mental lapses.

Here's hoping, droog! :)

Good to see you.  Football must be getting close.
