    Texas will probably win but it'll be really close.
    It wouldnt shock me one bit if TCU pulls the upset.

      hell me either, id love to see TCU make the jump to the big 12 south instead of conference usa...they would be an improvement over baylor and could compete with the likes of k state and ok state...

      i dont think it will be as close as i originally thought, seeing how close we won the week before, but i wouldnt be surprised none the less...i really just want to win the big 12 this yr, if colt improves like he should have and he shows me that ill have high hopes for a NC run

        Unfortunately this isn't true, Pittman was suspended for 3 games for borrowing a car from a friend over the summer. There was also no guarantee he would have played anyways.

        If Texas plays anywhere near the way they did last week, we'll be in trouble. But I expect our guys to come out with more focus and execute better.

          This Texas game is the only big time opponent TCU has had over the past 3 years. Other than this, they've only played cup cake teams, so don't over exaggerate like you usually do.

          People knock the WAC like no other. It's a stereotype of many football fans. Yet when teams like Hawaii try to schedule better teams, most cop out. Michigan State pulled out of their game against us this year because they were afraid to lose. Michigan's AD had accepted Hawaii's offer to play them in their home opener, but Lloyd Carr rejected it wanting to play App St. USC, Texas, Louisville, Texas A&M all turned down Hawaii's offer to play them.

            That isn't entirely true. Michigan was scheduled to open with Eastern Michigan. However, Bill Martin was able to move the game back a few weeks. Martin then was the one the scheduled Appalachian State, and Lloyd Carr actually didn't want any part of Appalachian State. Sources told the Detroit Free Press that Lloyd Carr was worried about the Appalachian State game well before the season started. Martin contacted Appalachian State first but then agreed to play Hawaii before they had responded. When ASU agreed to come to the Big House, it was Martin who went with them instead of Hawaii.

              Ah, thanks for clearing that up. Just goes to show how hard it is for a team in the Pacific to schedule a good school. They don't want to play, because there isn't enough to gain by beating them, yet the odds of losing are increased.

              At least Michigan would've lost to a ranked opponent. ;)

                If I recall in 2005 TCU opened up at Oklahoma and beat them. They went 11-1 that year with wins also over BYU,Utah, and Iowa State in their bowl game. I wouldnt call Oklahoma a cupcake team. Last year they held Texas Tech to 3 points, and I also wouldnt call Texas Tech a cupcake team. If your trying to make the arguement that Boise State plays a harder schedule your crazy. The Mountain West has way more talent then the WAC.

                    No argument, I'm just clarifying the truth. Didn't Boise St. beat OU last year as well? You mention BYU, Utah, Iowa St., Texas Tech...

                    Well, I'm not all up and up on Boise's schedule the last few years, but Hawaii is in the WAC and I have followed them. Michigan St., Purdue, Northwestern, Alabama, Arizona St.... all teams Hawaii beat in very recent years. While their schedule is weak this year, it is a byproduct of us beating these teams and scaring opponents away. Nobody wanted to face Colt Brennan in his senior year and that is a fact.

                    The WAC is on the rise and I can't really say that about the Mountain West. Boise St, Fresno St, Hawaii are the big 3 with New Mexico State, San Jose State, Nevada and UNLV close behind.

                      10 seems like a huge spread for this game I'd take TCU in a heartbeat

                          I guess we play them so often, I forget.

                          Back to the subject...

                          Texas wins this game but doesn't cover the spread.

                            sure does, it was a typo by NEXXX, not sure if he's still around or not, but i asked him to see if he could change it and well that never happened, beggers cant be choosers, but its time to move on to the next sig...


                            but on topic, TCU doesnt always have the easiest schedule, and when they do get big opponents always come to play...ive bee a fan of TCU for some time and love the program they have built over the last few years...it takes some guts to put teams like Texas on your schedule when you could easily walk to an undefeated record every yr with small time games...

                              All them teams you named have been real powerhouses lately... Come on give me a break. I wouldnt want to face Hawaii either look at their current schedule. If you beat them noone is going to give you credit. BTW San Jose State absolutely blows.

                                I think TCU is going to give Texas a good run for its money. I think an upset would not be out of the question especially considering how Texas looked against Arkansas St. during their opener.
