    This team is “splintered” and I don’t believe that it can be fixed.

    What does previous seasons have to do with the play of this year? I say that KSU has about a 60, 65 percent chance of winning this game.

    These predictions give me the comfort of the 500 year flood plain in Houston that floods every 3 years.

    And yet, a risk weighted model gave Texas 2.25 wins after 4 games. Seems pretty accurate. Name me a poster here who said, prior to the season, Texas would be 2-2 at this point?

    Fans are manic depressive about their teams. A win shows their team will win it all. A loss shows they won’t win again. Repeat and switch during the season as needed.

    Texas has not played well this year. But it has not played much worse than in previous years. Beat TT as usual, 3-1 under Herman against them. Losses to TCU and OU, as usual, 1-3 and 1-4 respectively.

    OSU is the only team left Herman does not have a winning record against, he’s 1-2. Rest are 2-1 save for 3-0 records against each of the Kansas teams. So on a risk weighted basis, baring injury to Sam or he mails it in, unlikely, best estimate is 4 more wins.

    That may seem like a lot now, but ask yourself if 6-4 was an expected result prior to the season, or if you would have considered that anything but a failure this year.

    Very well. We will never win another game this year. The team has quit. We’re doomed. Doomed I tells ya!

    Now if Texas wins: we’re back. Early season struggles are over. Team is clicking and found its groove. B12 game here we come!

    How many times will Texas celebrate holding Baylor to 20 yard gains?

    It did require a minor miracle to beat TT in overtime. Just sayin'.

    No, same prediction as mine more or less. High scoring game with a close Texas win. Baylor’s FG kicker seems bad by percentage made while Teaxs has the usual good one going back to the days of Phil Dawson.

    When the locker room is lost, is it not just one big ginormous continuous loss?

    TH did not instill me with faith with his answer when asked about the Eyes.

    With all the political correctness going on, it’s quickly getting to the ‘who cares’ category.

    Same here. I'm having a hard time getting interested in tomorrow's game. Two weeks ago I had very little excitement or anticipation leading up to the game. That is unheard of for me when comes to ou. I'm usually wound up tighter that a two dollar watch.
    The strongest emotion I feel is apathy. I hope something happens tomorrow to change that but I'm not holding my breath.

    The Texas games have been good to watch - sloppy, poor play for both teams, but exciting to watch - I keep going back to the analogy of the Popeye's chicken sandwich fights.

    Should be a good one with Baylor - with Baylor's good QB, I think he whips up on Texas' defense with good throws and gashes them with runs up the middle, as TCU's QB did, while Texas moves the ball themselves via Sam.

    But yeah, can't say I really care who wins. I couldn't sleep the night Texas lost to Texas Tech in 98 or 2008 to ruin the B12 championship hopes. Now it's like who won some random NFL game.
