    maybe he couldn't make the shoot?

      Did ya'll see the ESPN Horns coverage last wk on CFB?

      They predicted losses to 2 teams but I can't remember exactly who, Nebraska & somebody, either the Huskers & TAMU or the Huskers & Oklahoma. BTW they're picked behind the Sooners for the Big 12 South title, both have new QBs so maybe they think a healthy DeMarco Murray is the difference, I kind of doubt it. Oklahoma has the OL advantage but Texas has the better secondary & pass defense, Phil Steele lists the Horns secondary as best in the country.

      Are you buying that? Also are they developing a ball control running game or depending on Gilbert's arm with new receivers? I can't see them keeping the same offense with those QB designed running plays they had for McCoy.

      And I'm expecting great things from Sam Acho this yr, who Phil Steele's mag lists as a DT, I thought he was an OLB. Was he moved to DT?

        Funny, I was looking at the SI CFB Preview edition yesterday & I'll swear I saw Boise St. on the cover. Must have been the West Coast edition.

          Texas has Acho brothers on the team.

          Sam Acho (Sr.) DE had 10 sacks last season and could possibly slide inside some to play DT a little this coming season. I'm not sure.

          His younger brother Emmanual Acho (Jr.) is a BEAST OLB that has speed and the Texas website has him up to weighing 240 pounds now.

          I think both could have really big seasons for Texas.

            I think I saw 4 different covers. I think it must be a regional thing.

              It is. Out here in Pennsylvania, they have Ohio State on the cover.

                      So guys, should we be concerned that Georgia has been sucking ass and Richt could be outta here? What are the chances we lose Muschamp to Georgia if Mack returns? I don't know that we can make it another off-season of him getting offers.

                        OU week.

                        The UCLA wasn't the best. I'll leave it at that.

                        The young guys, DE Jeffcoat, DB Vaccaro, WR Marquise Goodwin and WR Mike Davis have been ballin'.

                        I hope Freshman WR Darius White is NEXT in having a big game.

                          You at least have hope. Hope that the run D will show up again like it normally does. Hope that OU isn't that good (they've struggled against a couple of terrible teams).

                          Hope that Gilbert took some smart pills and has stopped going full ******.

                          I still find it crazy that you haven't had a real running game in years with all of the studs that Brown has brought in.

                            This is what's pissing me off about this team so much, if we had a RB to rely on the dynamic of this team would have been completely different. Gilbert is really raw still and if we had a Benson, Ricky Williams, or even Jamaal Charles type to be a hog and take the pressure off of him it wouldn't be that much of a problem.


                            So much for Chris Whaley becoming that guy. It makes no sense how we can pull in top 5 recruiting classes year after year and it's so hard to find 1 RB to rely on.


                            Good news is that OU has had alot of close games also and they just haven't been beating everyone like they did FSU, so it's a toss up who wins this game right now. Gilbert is gonna have to make some big throws to win, and the D will have to play 10x better.

                              OSU has about 6 quality to stud rbs now and are bringing more in. No, you can't have any.

                                I was impressed by Prince last weekend.

                                CB Aaron Williams went BEAST mode!!!8 tackles, 1 TFL and 1 FF.
