Love seeing all the players getting to fire off Smokey.
Bijan firin Smokey
what does it mean???
I will give credit where credit is due and eat some crow to(wait did that just rhyme?). Anyway, they could have folded after the scoop and score, but they dug deep, manned up and kicked *** like a dominant football team would. No trickeration or lucky break, just pound the defense’s d$:k in the dirt.
He’s not Leon Fuller, but PK is one of the better defensive minds in today’s higher-scoring college game.
Bijan = total stud
Roschon = stud
OL— still needs some whispering
You have been beating on Ewers for a lot more than this game.
I would like to remind you of A recent QB that was universally praised on this board.
do you remember his freshman year? Probably not. Go back and look at the TTU and Okie lite games, especially the ending of both games.
get off the kids back.
It may depend on if he wants a chance to win the heisman. On a team with a better record and playing for a playoff spot, this would have been a heisman performance.
I talk crap when I'm mad. I want Texas up by 50 every game. I want all QBs to play like James Street, Vince or Colt played. But I'm not ready to give up on Ewers just yet. I want him here a complete offseason to see how he plays with someone behind him that'll push a bit harder than Card has. Again, I'm not sold on Arch yet. I'm not sure we'd want to roll into Tuscaloosa with him as our starting QB.
8-4 feels so much better than 5-7, huh? Coulda been better, but we’re better than where we were last year… and better than paying a coach $100M for 4-8, too, so there’s that.
That was a team win, even with some just shake your head mistakes they found a way to stay in it, run the freaking ball and play some defense. Bijan will be missed in the bowl game and next year as I have to think him firing the cannon was his goodbye. At the beginning of the year I thought 8-4 was a successful regular season. I would have taken it right then and there no questions asked so Texas finished right on the mark. The frustrating losses in Lubbock and Stillwater will hopefully be learning lessons for next year where a successful season has to be 10 wins and spot in the conference title game at a minimum. Now go finish off this recruiting class and build the depth Texas needs.
Glad I stayed out of here for most part during the game. From the stands it always felt like Texas was still in control. The first scoring drive of half got us in the crowd riled up again. Some Ewers frustration but some bad protection and sus situational calls but this felt like Texas was always in control after taking the lead early. The Whitt fumble derailed a bigger butt kicking.
Finishing 8-4, and going bowling, feels so much better than 2021 team scrambling with a 4-7 record to beat KSU to finish a horrible season 5-7 ... and no bowl.
He had 7 touches for 29 in the first half. Monster 2nd half.
So glad to hear it felt different in DKR
There was plenty of angst in here.
Now, everyone together:
ROCK CHALK JAYHAWKS !!!
I have been hard on this team, especially the defense. But give credit to how they bounced back after spotting Baylor 9 points and then falling behind at half. And I also will say cut Ewars some slack. he is, after all, a freshman.
I will say this: that was prolly the smallest crowd of the year and they were still plenty salty. The noise of the crowds all year have been great IMO.
Baylor had 1 penalty. Sounds about right (not)
WTF is up with these officiating crews?
Let me know when a ‘Bama O-lineman enters the portal - that’s what we need.
He was more accurate but he wet the bed for 10 points
Get those young pups on the offensive line a complete off season with time to get stronger. Ewers will look much better running the show next season.
I predicted we’d fold and I am so glad to be wrong.
We flipped the script and ran away with it in the second half, and nan does that feel good.
this is a win we can build on. Got to sort out the passing game though. one dimensional teams have a ceiling.
OK, he went from 2.5 to 3.5 on a scale of 10
not surprised we won because the game was close all along.
Bailor OL holding was ignored by the refs.
Even when Baylor stacked the LOS, we came, we saw, we kicked their A$$ in the end.
Maybe we just should have committed to the run against TCU to see what could happen in the 2nd half.
I know it’s hard to give him credit, I get it. I’ve kicked him too, but only a blind dude can not see he showed a little improvement. Not saying you have to stop hating him. Not saying that at all.
