Yup.  Spring practice starts on 3/23 and the spring game will be on 4/25 or 4/26.

Nope, that one is probably 40 years younger than mine.

For a split-second, I thought that looked like Mike Gundy on the bike.

I considered that win over Louisiana to be an excellent season-opener, in that it wasn't a complete embarrassment like two years in a row against Maryland.  Still lots to work on, this season will be a work in progress, but there's some talent on the field.

Now it's on to Arkansas, in a game that was supposed to be played over a decade ago, but for various reasons the pigs had to push out a couple of times.

I didn't see their game against Rice so really can't comment on what I expect from them.  From the Horns, I expect a solidly coached effort with few mistakes.  Several times last season, such an outing would have been enough to turn a loss into a win.

as I mentioned in another post we passed only one third of the time

was that cause the coaches thought that is the permanent direction of our offense or because Louisiana was defending the pass more then the run

the last few years our run vs pass was about 50/50

I guess another way of saying this is I dont think we showed what a decent passing attack we have under Card

as always it will depend on just how Arkansas defends us

if I were them Id do everything I could to shut down our running attack  and make us beat them in the air

Well that was a better outing.  

Not much to take away from pounding a helpless, hapless, overmatched opponent, but at least the team was doing what it's supposed to do.

I can only imagine what this stable of running backs could do, if they had even an average o-line.  Ah well, gotta work with what we've got.

Next two weeks against Tech and TCU will tell us a lot more about where we stand, heading into OU game in 3 weeks.

Congrats to the Horns.  I do think they look better with Thompson than Card.

Probably so but it's tough to say.  He looked good in garbage time at the end of a blowout loss to Arkansas last week, and he looked good against a bad team yesterday.

The next two weeks will tell us more.  Tech's not great but they're better than Rice, and TCU always plays well against Texas.

Thompson looked much better then Card we still run the ball 2 out of every 3 plays

Granted if youre playing a team thats weak against the run then you have to take advantage of it but thats not always the case

In short we are going to need a good passing game to succeed and right now it looks like our coach just doesnt like to pass the ball

if we try this stuff against TCU they will eat our lunch

Historically we have always been able to run the ball against Tech so I look for more of the same next week
