    Still 30 min left. Maybe we can have a miracle comeback.

    I have to be at work at 4:30am, but I never leave a UT game early

    Here's a little secret. When UT is in 3rd and long, Arkansas is going to blitz the **** out of Swoopes!

    We had 46 yards of offense but after the first drive we now have 37 yards of offense. Also, more poor special teams play by us. [​IMG]

    Texas needs a quarterback. Again, sorry to ***** about Strong, but he is a defensive coordinator.

    Missed FG = best special teams all day.

    The most concerning thing is that this staff seemed to mail in the season as a "gimme" to see what they had to work with, rather than a "must win" mentality. This team had enough players to attempt to compete, but when Ash bowed out, it was all a very "meh" reaction from the staff. Just chalk it up to a bunch of learning experiences.

    Swaim with a missed block and Brown gets killed. Then a bad throw by Swoopes negates what would have been a Daje TD.

    This OL wouldn't be good enough for an FCS team.

    We now have 31 yards of offense. We had 46 yards at halftime. We had -8 yards on the first drive of the 3rd Q and -7 yards on the second drive. I've never seen a Texas offense like this before. We are losing total yards on every drive in the second half.

    Even the 2000 Cotton Bowl is preferable to this crap.

    At halftime the on-the-field reporter asks Strong how he improves the quarterback play and he flips the question to how they need to improve on defense. Just so frustrating. He has no lclue what to do on offense.

    Meanwhile Muchigan goes out and pays a top coach $8 million a year. We should have spent what ever it took to get the best PROVEN coach.

    So we're basically the worst 3rd quarter team in the country since Week One, and we dare to continue the trend in our bowl game. Why change things up now? 23 points all season long. Less than 2 ppg in the 3rd. Way to play.

    ANOTHER series with negative yardage. Holy ****. Wickline is probably wondering why he bolted the friendly confines of T. Boone Pickens for this.

    -2 yards on the third drive of the 3rd Q. Now down to 29 total yards of offense. -17 yards total for our offense in the 3rd Q so far.

    IMHO there have been two plays all season that seem to be available for us, the zone read and the play action pass. With regard to the zone read, either the staff does not believe that Swoopes has the ability to execute the play, or, they are afraid of exposing him to the hits, given that no backup exists. With regard to the play action, I believe the issue is Swoopes' inability to quickly read the defense.

    Beyond those two plays, we don't seem to have much in our arsenal to challenge a decent defense.

    Daje had a touchdown with ant kind of and in bounds throw. What a lost chance.

    Duke, it's definitely the latter thing that you stated. They don't trust his brain or his confidence.

    How many recruits do we lose after this abortion? I'd guess aggy will go ahead and cherry pick whomever they want without lifting a finger [​IMG]

    Strong won't last through his initial contract at this rate

    Back to the whole "we suck in the 3rd quarter" thing, have the coaches even responded to the issue? Is it just coachspeak like something we need to work on? It's embarrassing that everyone in every week knows exactly how the 3rd quarter will go.

    It's official. -17 yards in the 3rd Q. We would have had a better 3rd Q if we had spiked the ball on every play.

    His initial contract? 29 yards of total offense needs to get someone fired now!

    How many times have I heard Vance Bedford say "when you're in man, don't peak at the quarterback." And Duke keeps doing it over and over and over. He just conceded a first down because he was afraid of getting beat. THat's why we can't get off the field on defense,
