Well we certainly made Burrow look like an NFL starter, not sure that will bear out all season long but he was better than Sam on Saturday night.

One this is for sure, NEITHER of these schools should be referring to themselves as "DBU."  Both defensive secondaries were absolutely de-pantsed.

Well, I feel like Herman is trying to "speak something into truth" with this DBU thing.  Plus he wants the jingle for recruiting.

But it is not a proven entity.  Yes we have had some good DB's, but DBU?  Meh, getting a little ahead of things.

My concern was not the fact that they could move the ball in the air on us

It was how open the receivers were

Many times there wasnt a def back within 5 to 8 yards of the receiver

I hope we get better

as a side note Army almost beat Mich and only managed to beat Rice 14 to 7

The Horns might have themselves a trap game on their hands

When a team is properly running the "spread" offense, it doesn't take much to make the defense look inept. One particular concept is "levels" wherein a group of receivers, maybe a boundary and a slot, are joined by a motion RB or TE. At the snap, they all race downfield and break in at different, you guessed it, levels!

This sounds straightforward, but keep in mind that, when breaking across a field horizontally, the QB can throw to either arm of the receiver (that is, hit him directly with the pass or lead him further upfield). In order to blanket 3 receivers, you'd need 6 DBs! Clearly, the defense can't commit those resources! Using rotations and check offs, a defense can put a lid on levels if it collectively recognizes it quickly enough, but it's not uncommon to have one guy be slow reacting (usually a guy who had other primary responsibilities like covering the QB option or inside give running play).

Texas has a lot of work to do on its defense. No doubt. However, LSU really knew their stuff going in to that game. I'm not overly concerned about the Longhorn defense, so long as they continue to improve with game experience.

Army is a different animal. They do one thing really, really well. If you can't handle that one thing, then they bleed clock, yards, and points out of you. When you're used to having 7 possessions to fix your mistake, you're probably only going to get 4. In that way, they really take advantage of an opponent's offensive miscues. Rice doesn't have the horses to play both run and pass, so they were grateful to Army for picking one.

Texas shouldn't have any problems with Rice. They lack the athletes to cope with a multiple attack. Just try to stay healthy.

and yet Army almost ruined Mich's day

either Mich is way over rated or Rice is way under rated

I suspect its a little of both

One thing is true - you never see how open certain receivers are unless the QB throws to them.  My point?  Burrow could find the open guy.

Let's just say a little bit of both.  Burrow is a boss, I'm telling you...

Maybe we should stick some wall units in so SEC teams could feel at home.

So it's a good thing that Texas provides the visiting team with an un-air-conditioned locker room?

I can imagine the jokes you'd be making if it were OU's locker room we were talking about.  And so can you.

You're falling for a red herring and believing an obvious lie, simply because you WANT to.  Here's UT's athletic director completely refuting an obvious and stupid lie from Ed Orgeron, to cover for being called out on his bush-league tactic of faking injuries to slow down an uptempo offense that was dominating his defense in the second half.

Quote
On Monday, Texas athletics director Chris Del Conte responded to the accusations.
“The comment today about lack of air conditioning in our visiting locker room is the first we’ve heard of any issues in that area,” Del Conte said in a statement released by the school.
“We provide one of the best visitor setups available and are proud of the efforts we put forth in hosting our guests. Our facilities staff did not receive any complaints from either Louisiana Tech or LSU, and we’ve confirmed that our air conditioning in the visiting locker room is in good working order.”


13 "heat cramp" injuries, which mysteriously only affected LSU's defense, and mysteriously almost invariably when Texas had gained a first down, was running uptempo with no changes in personnel, so LSU could not substitute.  There was even one hilarious point when TWO guys looked to the sideline and keeled over at the same time, then looked at each other, and were obviously confused about which one of them was supposed to fake the injury and take the dive on that particular play.

There's no rule to prevent it from happening, but it was obvious, and poor sportsmanship.  Orgeron started getting questions asked about it, and made up some bullshit about no A/C.

Which has since been called out as an outright lie.

Actually, Utee, I posted Orgeron's claim confident that a Texas poster would refute it, as I'm glad to see you have done.

But BC and 320 seemed to be celebrating it as a good thing.  Hence my comment.

OK.

Also, I played football in Texas in the months of August and September for multiple years with no A/C of any kind in our locker rooms, home or away.

Just as did... well... everyone that's ever played little league, junior high, or high school football in the state of Texas for the past 130 years.

I would think that the new HS stadia going up across Texas, the ones larger than Division II colleges have, probably have A/C in their locker rooms.

We've got some of that football empire-building going on in Oklahoma as well.

Your comments about LSU are not surprising.  Every Sooner fan who came back from the 2003 (season) Sugar Bowl vs. LSU can relate tales of malfeasance by the Bayou Bengals, their HFC (Saban) and their "fans."

We need Mike de Tigre (?) to offer insight into this.
