TSure scoreboard stopped all your anti OU smack for most of this century.  Not.  Lol

On Bedlam, Yeah it’s usually a whoever has the ball last kind of deal, which is exciting to watch but doesn’t speak well about Big XII defense.  Oh well.  

I’m giving y’all a hard time because, well, we’re rivals, but I’d love nothing more than to see both our teams make the CCG.

Texas Tech is like a dust devil.  They get generated by the air and look pretty fearsome from a distance but when you drive into that mess you realize there’s not a lot of substance there.  So just keep on driving and get through to the other side and you’ll have a W.

(Not that anyone here will be down on the field but I’m just pretending like you are )

I thought Texas had a chance to win until I saw this thread. Now I know we’re doomed.

Everytime some yahoo starts a Texas game thread in this forum before a Texas game, Texas loses.  For six straight weeks, Texas fans on this board were cognizant of that fact and resisted the temptation.

Now you guys are screwing Texas every week like you just don’t care.  If you keep it up, we’ll be lucky to finish 6-7.

But come on primo you have to appreciate my dust devil metaphor.  I was pretty proud of that little “brainstorm.” Has no effect on the ecfgs as I’m not a fan.

I do. I do love the dust devil metaphor, Cousin Fred.  It is so apt.

I immediately remembered an old red vacuum cleaner my i s c& a w and I once had.   

It was red.

It sucked.

And it wasn’t even very good at sucking which made it even worse.

Now I think we have a silver shark instead of a red devil.  Seems to work better.  Or maybe my spirit is just broken now that I’m in my 50s and I’ve resigned myself to emptying canisters and cleaning filters.

I suppose i could delete this thread...

Missed all the morning games, my son had his end-of-season flag football tournament.  Lost the first game, won the second, so ended up 3rd in their league. They got a 3rd place medal and he was happy.  I enjoy watching him grow and learn the game.  Been a good day so far.

No doubt - I can’t argue with that
Congrats to your Horns for the win.  Great ending TD!

After two in a row not going our way, it was good to finally win another one of these crazy shootout battles.

Texas Tech is not very good.    And Texas, were not much better.     If not for Sam Ehlinger we would have another couple of losses.

After a full season and 10 games, I gave Charlie about a 1 on a 10 scale.

I give Herman a 3.

I'm not feeling it long term.

Don't forget LJH.  What a beast.  Heard did a good job but we were definitely missing Collin Johnson on the other side.

I don’t think we’re at a place where we can be choosy about wins. Our program is still taking baby steps.

Would I like Texas to have the depth, talent and coaching to curbstomp all competition?  Sure.

But I take joy in the little things.  Narrow wins, 7-3, the three being close.

It’s not like all of Texas’ talent is going to leave next year and it’s now or never.   We’re on an upward trajectory and I’m pleased.

In fact this year is a joy because I have no expectations and Texas is exceeding them.  Wins over USC, TCU, K State in Manhattan, OU, Tech in Lubbock.  

Who the hell do we think we are to take such things for granted? Such things never came easy for Charlie Strong or Mack Brown.

Assuming (and that’s a big assumption) that OU and Texas can beat Kansas, the race to the CCG hinges on 3 games now.

1. Iowa St at Texas - the Horn must win. Otherwise they’ll fall to 4th in the conference.

2. WVU at OSU - this one doesn’t really matter to the Horns b/c wvu holds the tiebreaker.  

3. OU at wvu.  We need WVU to beat OU because Texas owns the tiebreaker.  Course if wvu loses to OSU and Ou the Horns are in any way.

I guess basically wvu either has to lose out or win out or split their remaining games with a win over Ou for a Texas that wins out to get to the CCG.  Right?

Sounds plausible.

It's awesome just being in the mix at the end of the season.
Step 1, we gotta beat the birds-in-a-blender.  They whipped both OkState and WVU, so they can certainly whip us, too.  But Texas can win, too.  I predict that ISU scores a TD on their opening drive, and that Texas blows a big lead in the 4th quarter.  Who wins?  Tune in and see, I guess. :)

ISU is a good team.  That's gonna be a tough one for you.

WVU is too.  That's gonna be a tough one for us.  Right now, it looks like they're the best team in the XII.

Actually ISU has a reasonable chance of making the CCG.  They own the tiebreaker with WVU and only have two losses like Texas.  If they get past the Horns and WVU loses to either OU or OSU, and both are entirely possible, then they just have to beat KSU (not a total gimme but ISU is the much better team this year) and they're in the championship game.  Who'd a thunk it?

It's just too bad they lost to Iowa at the beginning of the year, as that along with their severe lack of helmet would keep them out of the playoffs, no matter what happens.

Yup.  Their chances of making the CCG are every bit as good as ours. Possibly better than ours.

Reading about the Texas/Tech game in the Houston Chronicle and ran across this little gem:

Quote
Texas allowed 500-plus yards - a season-worst 595, in fact - for the third straight week and fourth time in five games. But it played mistake-free football and exploited the fact that Tech didn’t.


Uhhhh, you don't play "mistake free football" and allow 600 yards of offense. What the hell are they teaching in journalism school these days?  More fake news I see.  Sheesh.

If you can’t laugh at that as a fan of any school I don’t know what else to say. Anytime your team escapes Lubbock with a win it’s a good thing, I’m not taking anything away from that. I just wouldn’t characterize 600 yards of offense as mistake free.

Journalists don't really think about what they write anymore, or say, apparently. 

Did you see when the reporter was talking to Ehlinger and asked about which of his family would be the most proud of him?  Very insensitive question considering his father has passed, and it's basically like asking someone "how do you think other people feel about YOU?"  and is a dumb question to begin with.  He handled it well but it felt very uncomfortable watching that question being asked.  

Anyhow, always good to get a win in Lubbock, mistake-free or not.

C'mon. WVU@oSu is a big game for Texas, simply because it moots the outcome of the OU/WVU game.

Assuming Texas wins out (neither game guaranteed), if WVU were to fall to the PokeBoys, they would have 2 conference losses. OU would (almost assuredly) still have the 1. If WVU won the WVU/OU game, then OU would have 2 losses, fall to Texas on head to head, and make Texas #2. If OU wins, WVU has 3 conference losses, and Texas is #2 outright.

No.  You, come'on, Doppelganger.  It sounds like you're reiterating every point I made to what... contradict me?

For Texas to make it to the CCG...
1. Texas must win out, and
2. wvu must 
a. win out to claim #1, pushing OU into a tie for #2 where Texas owns the tie breaker, or 
b. lose all remaining games, falling to #3 or 
c. win just one of their final two games - provided it's the one against OU, thus creating a three way tie for #1

If, however, wvu wins just one of their final two games and it's the one against oSu, then OU would be #1, while Texas and wvu would be tied for second with wvu holding the tie breaker.  Thus, OU and wvu would play in the CCG and Texas would essentially be #3.

Texas may still be left out if OU, wvu and Texas all tie for #1 but since it's last loss would be earlier, I hope not.

So wvu at oSu is a big game and that's why I listed it as such, but oSu beating wvu is not as essential to Texas getting to the CCG as wvu winning out, losing out or losing to oSu but beating OU.

I'm pretty sure we just said the same thing. I did it in 2 statements because I only focused on the part where WVU loses to the Cowboys.

Yours is a beautifully detailed, bullet pointed, outline style description of the whole shebang.

Durned accountants!
