As mentioned here back in December, I've decided to amp up the volume of criteria for the offense and defense. So without further delay, here's how the Horns did against the Ags: Offensively: Let's just hope that slow start was a one-time incident because playing that poorly against a few of the teams I see on UT's schedule will certainly lead to some frantic finishes and some losses. In the grand scheme of things, however, I did like what Major was doing as a playcaller. Ash looked like he was in La La Land for the first 25 minutes of the game, but finally realized he had to play and from that point I'd give him a solid B average. The run game is still a work in progress simply because of the unreliability of the line, but I did like what I saw from the backs. Defensively: Look, you can't give up an efficient performance by a team that came off of last year ranked 84th in the nation in passing efficiency. This "bend but don't break" crap isn't going to get it done against the better teams on the schedule because these stats that you're seeing by these hurry-up no-huddle teams are usually chalked up on sheer volume. That is to say they run a crap load of plays, and they can do that since they don't waste any time getting to the LOS like others do. Bend-but-don't-break is incompatible with HUNH. There needs to be a lot more opportunism and aggression in this unit, and I just didn't see it last night. What really concerns me was the QB's repeated ability to find the TE on that bootleg play that they kept running in the first half. Oklahoma and teams like them notice things like that. Individually, I really liked what Dalton Santos was doing out there as well as Diggs, Reed, and probably a few others I've overlooked. Special Teams: Damn it, the kickoff cover unit once again has revealed early signs of being a liability and I do not like that. Wish I could have seen more by the PR team, but it's kinda hard to do that when the other team's punter is consistently giving them a high kick that forces a fair catch. Fera's looking pretty good so far, as is Rose of course. Always glad to hit that positive grade on the KR metric in the absence of a lot of attempts. I saw that BYU was defeated by a rather pathetic UVA team (4-8 last year, no indications of significant improvement from what I've heard). This means 2 things: 1. Obviously BYU is going to be hungry and pissed off wanting to get their first W at home against Texas. 2. They really suck and this is the perfect opportunity for the Horns to go up there and [Mike Leach]roll the **** out of somebody[/Mike Leach] to keep the momentum going against Ole Miss.
