Casey Thompson looked awfully good yesterday.  Texas was an offensive juggernaut in the 2nd half.

Not sure we were playing a good defensive team

Once we got past their front four is was smooth sailing

lots of poor tackling

The 'eers squeaked by a gritty Army team with Sooner transfer Kendal Austin leading the comeback.  Makes the Big 12 4-0 with ISU up next.
Casey Thompson looked good for Texas.  Did he transfer from the Sooners or flip his commitment?  Sooners QB room is really thin right now with Mordecai and Morris hitting the portal.

CT came to UT as a recruit 

He attempted to transfer a year ago but reconsidered

He has 3 years remaining of eligibility after 2020

You may be thinking of Kendal Thompson, Casey's older brother.  He was a Sooner for awhile.
Their dad, of course, is Charles Thompson, of orange-jumpsuit-on-the-cover-of-SI infamy.
He has straightened out his life and from what I can tell has raised his sons to be far more responsible young men than he was.
He's a bit of a helicopter parent, though.

I was camping but we had our tailgate party TV setup out there in the boondocks. 

Winning is always better than losing, but winning bowl games was never Tom Herman's problem.  It was all that other stuff.

Congrats to the Sooners, 'Eers, and (probably) the Cyclones who are finishing up the 4th quarter against Oregon.

And congrats to CD's Dawgs too, since he's one of the few non-B12ers that frequents this board,

Texas' new coach has some talent to work with.  I guess we'll see how he uses it.

Big 12 5-0, Froth 0.  Coach gets dominating win and gets fired.  Glad that weird year is done.

Some of the insiders say it was when he lost back-to-back against a bad TCU team and a very beatable OU team.

Suffice to say going 1-4 against OU is enough to get ANY Texas coach fired.  Always has been, always will be.

I read an "insider" (FWIW) story that there was very recently a meeting of Herman, Del Conte, the President, and at least some of the regents, and that the meeting went bad and that's when the final decision was made.

Maybe that's like CD's Civil War novel--fictional.

It seems that some Texas sportswriters believe that Del Conte lied to them about Herman's status.

Sarkisian seems an odd choice.  If I had been assembling a list of potential Texas HFCs 3 days ago, I wouldn't have even thought about him.

He's the first guy who was not a sitting HFC to be hired to "steer" the Longhorn program since 1951.

I think "an odd choice" is putting it mildly.  I actually expect it to be a disastrous choice.
