Saw this on surlyhorns, just an interesting tidbit of info...

SEC Defensive yards / game average-- and then vs. B12 in bowl:
- Georgia: 311 avg. | Sugar Bowl vs. Texas: 355
- Vandy: 420 avg. |  Texas Bowl vs. Baylor 668
- Alabama: 295 avg. | Orange Bowl vs. OU 471
- Missouri: 379 | Liberty Bowl vs. Pokes 502


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.

Now this is really funny, because it's true! :)

I'd watch that!
But it doesn't even need to be a TV movie, real disaster films were huge in the 70s.  Towering Inferno, Poseidon Adventure, Airport, Airport '75, Airport '77... you get my drift! :)

Thanks, Junior.

So... in light of Clemson's win last night, I wonder what the SEC narrative will be?   "Alabama didn't want to be there," perhaps?

I would just like to point out that only 2 conference had winning records

in bowl games featuring P5 conference teams

Big 12 went 4 and 3

Big Ten went 5 and 4

the SEC went 5 and 6

The Pac 12 went 3 and 3 

and the ACC went  3 and 4

sec sec sec

How about everybody just root for their own team.  Mine won, all I really care about.  Never was interested in carrying the SEC mantle.  I thoroughly enjoyed the whipping Clemson put on Bama, gave them a taste of their own medicine.

Re: Bevo

I own a Great Dane and have had a couple. Woody is a big, currently smelly animal who largely lays on the couch (he takes up an old reclining love seat no one else sits on). When I get home, he runs around in circles, gets petted, then runs off to find one of his toys to throw. We do this 3 or 4 times because that's all the motion he cares to expend.

He's also 36" at the shoulder, weighs 190 lbs, and is around 6' 4" standing on his back legs. Every once in awhile, when I'm winding him up by bumping him over or bulldogging his head, I remember that his breed used to run down and kill wolves by snapping their necks.

These massive animals have chosen to be our friends. Sometimes, though, they remind us of what the other choice would look like.

You're a good aggie, Gig'em.  There's no denying that.   Good aggies are kind of like cats who aren't jerks.  They're very rare but nice to have around.

So when my irrepressibly sweet cute and adorable wife and I first got married, her father gave us one of his acres.  We had a cheap but affordable Jim Walters home put on it and we had a happy acre with my father-in-law's remaining 29 acres on two sides of us, a neighboring farmers 30 acres on the other side of us and an old feller with about 50 acres across the road from us.

The old feller raised goats and had donkeys to look after them.  My father-in-law and other next door neighbor raised the bare minimal number of cows to meet their agricultural property tax exemptions.  I think it was like 6 cows per 30 acres.  My father-in-law had longhorns.  The neighbor had anguses.

I was a city kid stuck between cow pastures, trying to not get involved but there were times I had to because cattle knock down fences more than Steve McQueen his stalag in The Great Escape.

I have to go to lunch now but if I get a chance, I may share a couple of anecdotes.
