    Overall Tech stinks this year, but Bowman is no slouch. He's a dangerous man at QB.

    Garland v. Amarillo Tascosa Dec. 1963 - rode a chartered train from Garland to Amarillo; train encountered snow west of Wichita Falls and had to slow down making it to Amarillo right before kickoff; we forced/paid off the train crew to stop the train close to the field; rain down a hill and basically broke into the stdium. I thought that was cold until -

    Amarillo Tascosa v. Garland, Dec. 1964.
    Game at Amon Carter (TCU). Kick off temperature 25 and falling with a strong north wind. In addition to fear of falling out of those crazy almost vertical seats, I have never been that cold again.

    Looking out 12 days, the forecast for Sept 26th is a high of 81° that afternoon. It is the Panhandle and a lot can change between now and then.

    Someone just needs to stay at the bus and make sure their Mensa Society pledges don't throw 'catfish bait' in there.

    Even if you take this bull at face value...600+ yards! There IS no excuse for that. Even marginal walk-ons should be able to contain HBU!

    I looked it last year or the year before because so many people always talk about how scary it is to play Tech, and I found that if you go back to the first meeting, we have rarely lost to them. Home or away.

    I apologize for the only view I could find of the 5th Tech voter
    (although it does show the part of the body she was thinking with
    when giving Tech a vote for the Top 25 after the HBU game).

    Hopefully the only question this game brings is "How many tortillas can be carried in by 10- 15 K fans?"

    Regardless of how bad Tceh, ISU, KSU looked the 1st week they will bring their A game against Texas. Ever since the B12 began the #1 priority for every team not named gooner is to beat Texas.

    Just as Tceh thought they could just walk out onto the prairie and beat HBU by 50, Texas will get the same treatment if they have the same attitude walking out onto the prairie to play Tceh.

    Maybe we'll be motivated to get back in the top 10. B1G announcement imminent according to reports leaking out. I expect they will play ball and we will see re-rankings to account for it...as well as new bowl projections FWIW.
    Either way...
    I'm thinking we look like a different team this year....vibe feels different. Even without JWhitt and Jake...Expect a beatdown.

    Texas needs to get out of Lubbock healthy or the train has the possibility of falling off the tracks.

    So weird. I was looking in the Notes on my MacBook for something entirely different from this but ran across this very note I had made in Nov 2018. Texas was 20-10 in Lubbock at the time.

    Looks like 75 TTU players have tested positive to COVID-19 since June and who knows how many are in quarantine now?

    Holly cow!! I was at those games as well. My father and I followed the Owls and went to every home and away game, including post season play. I graduated from GHS in ‘72.

    But they could have if they'd have handled it differently early on. Its part of the season...so no whining. Those who had a more proactive, sensible approach are benefitting now and the others...well, they have no excuses and need to own it.

    "Even marginal walk-ons should be able to contain HBU!"

    Jacques could have tackled HBU's RBs and WRs.
    Money could have caught TDs against HBU's DBs.
    (neither is marginal, but both are walk-ons)
