b12 offensive ypg vs sec in the bowl:
texas 411/355
baylor 459/668
ou 570/471
ok st 512/502
vandy and to lesser extent mizzou weren't exactly good defenses, but both bama and uga held their opp to significantly less yrds than ave.
conversely, the b12 defenses vs sec offenses didn't fare well at all, except texas which shut down uga. but bama hit their o ave/g right on the nose while blowing past ou d ave, and vandy and missou both way out did both their ave o output and their opp d ave by a ton.
don't get me wrong, the b12 did very good in those games. but the conf reputations of off vs def held out fairly even, sans the sugar bowl.

Garrett Gilbert who has possibly never started a game in the NFL has a job in the NFL while Vince Young who was 30-17 as a starter does not.

I missed where Gilbert threw his helmet in the stands and made a fool.

And I have no problem assuming that backup QB's are held to higher maturity standards than starters.  If you're gonna have a pain in the ass on your team, he better be damn good.

Im sure most of you have seen this by now but just in case you haven't

City people don't know you're not supposed to run a little pooch up to a bull.  Steer or otherwise.

In a not so ironic twist, mark my words: Texas will be what takes down Alabama.  And thus, the S-E-C.

And again... pooooor Aggy.

Like a month ago you were telling us Herman was not up to snuff and now you're saying we're going to take down Bama?

In my opinion, Texas is where it was in 1999 or 2000.  It took another five years, five unbearable beatings by OU and the unleashing of VY to get from there to where we wanted to be.

I'll be happy if we win the Big 12 next year and only lose two games.  I want to enjoy the ascent.  I don't want to raise the dang bar so high, that I become an unhappy victim of my own unrealistic expectations.

This years Texas team reminds me a lot of our 2004 team
Our team at the end of the season was much better then the one that opened against the Terps
I just hope we keep going up
We had a decent 2019 recruiting class
Herman must be doing something right

So, I can’t help but observe, that after all these years of Texas fans claiming, based on nothing but their own hot air, that Bob Stoops kicks puppies ...

It turns out that it was Bevo all along.

Ha ha - if he was a step quicker he might’ve launched poor little Uga into seats!

That was by far the funniest BEVO clip Ive ever seen

I have a feeling he has gained a whole new respect from those around him and the fan base as well

Uga should be very happy Bevo is a steer and not a bull.  A bull that size would kill a half dozen dogs and photographers a week.

Wouldn’t that make a great 1970s ABC Sunday Night Movie?

Voiceover Announcer- “Sick of sophomoric sexual taunting by rivals, Texas takes an uncastrated longhorn bull to its bowl game...”

Sexy 70s woman - “Oh Bevo, you look so.... different.”

Darren McGavin-like journalist - “That’s not a steer.  That’s a bull!  Run!”

Crowd scream.  Shots of a huge longhorn bull tossing spectators at the Cotton Bowl.

Howard Cosell in the booth - “The caw-nage!”

A little girl in pig-tails screams, “Daddy!  Where’s my Daddy?”  As the shadow of the beast looms over her.

There’s a snort.  And a scream.

Voiceover announcer - “Bevo... the bull.  You’ll never go to a football game again.”

I guess the idea that BEVO is given a sedative before games is false

That was DeLoss Dodd’s Bevo.  Chris Del Conte’s Bevo entertains.
