The Tech loss is second only to last year's OU collapse in terms of devastation. The other losses last year, after the Arky blowout and the OU debacle, you could wave away as first year issues, from a failed season.
This year was supposed to be different. I said before the Alabama game - no moral victories. Either win or it's a failed opportunity. Yet I too fell into the hype about it being close, and Texas' starting QB being knocked out.
That was rubbish. The Alabama game was yet another step backwards, with Tech being further retreat.
At this point, Sark has won a total of 7 games at Texas - 4 of which were either hired teams or Rice who does a home and away instead. 3 victories against teams you didn't have to bribe to show up. And no real reason to think that anything is better coming up. Tech was one of the weaker teams in conference, and most the remaining games are against teams that are better than they are.
Sark is staring to approach the Charlie Strong Experience in terms of game futility. It needs to change quickly, or it won't this year, or next. You don't go sub-500 1.5 seasons in, then turn things around and start winning conference championships.
People like to trot out Saban's initial 6-6 record at Alabama - but in season two he went I think 11-1, and played for the conference championship. Not on the path to do that at Texas from what's been shown so far.
