    Two safeties in overtime? I like it!

    The next 2 games make or break this season.

    We're going to be 8-5 after bowl game.

    I dont know if Sam is the future but I think he can get us a win in West Va.
    31 Horns-24 WVa In OT with Sam

    8-5 prediction is with Sam playing extensive downs. Nothing against Shane but I think we'll need Sam's mobility minus turnovers in overtime.

    Defense fights for three quarters but folds in the fourth when it becomes apparent our offense cant move the ball much less score

    I think we have at least a decent shot. WV no better on offense than USC and we held them to 17 in regulation on the road.

    With Shane and new O line--Horns 35 wvu 27
    With Sam and new O line--Horns 28 wvu 27

    without new O line-- Shane-- Horns Horns 24 wvu 27
    without new O line-- Sam-- Horns 20 wvu 27

    Sam is turnover prone, doesn't read Defenses; doesn't pass the ball as well as Shane. O line cannot block well enough to get a decent run game to help Sam out enough to get the V.

    Our O line is not good enough to help us out score wvu at their home.

    Plus, our D is wounded without Hill. wvu can score. This game is not lining up well. Hope I'm wrong about this.

    No Holton Hill....

    Hope I'm wrong and Horns win & upset their shacks, stills and women folk!

    Depends on the QB.

    From every objective perspective I just don't see us winning this game. And only if the defense plays great can we keep it close. That said, if Ehlinger is healthy enough and starts, we have a chance. But I'm afraid that this one won't be pretty.

    WVA -35
    TX - 17

    I fear that we are on the verge of a collapse. Hope I'm wrong.

    UPDATE:

    If -- as is being reported now -- Connor WIlliams plays, it's a whole new ballgame. With that caveat and if Ehlinger starts, I'll go with a close win: 35-28.

    I think that the only way for us to win is to win the turnover battle.

    I haven't seen much of the hillbillies this year ... but I don't read where they are as good as in previous years, themselves ... so I think this is a close one and will actually come-down to an attempted/made field goal or two.

    Yeah, I know.

    63 points scored in the game +/- 2

    Basketball prediction? We are not scoring 44 ... and I don't think they score 41 either. 24-17 WVU

    What madcow said. I will go with 27 - 17 WVU

    I do not think WVU will be so generous giving away points and I would be surprised if we could score more than three times on our own.

    These games with W. Va. have all been close.

    I think Herman gets a big win and Horns roll 28-24.

    This defense has held much better offenses than they are facing Saturday to fewer points than I am seeing in some of these predictions.

    Y'all realize that it's going to be raining (100% chance of rain) and about 50 degrees. High late in the game will be 55. Not what our kids are used to.

    I have to revise my prediction if this weather forecast is accurate. I think the hillbillies from the movie "Deliverance" will win 3-0 in OT. I assume they have a kicker.

    Texas wins 28-17 and Shane has a great game and Horns get bowl-eligible.

    Connor Williams returns. Texas QB(either one) gets another second to pass the ball.

    Defense gets multiple turnovers.

    beware of betting lines that look out of whack; and overreaction Mondays when your team looked either pathetic or unbeatable the previous Saturday.

    31-27 Texas if Sam plays more.
    24-27 WV if Shane plays more.

    I am hoping the time off helped Sam and he wont throw a pick 6 in the final minute going in for the winning TD.

    This is the team's best and realistic chance for becoming bowl eligible. Will they throw in the towel for the season? I say, no.
