    Agree. Very bad spot that should have been contested. A FD there might have made a big difference.

    And more Eagles than Epps who should at best be 3rd team.

    Yea, I went back and looked at that. He had the 1st and it wasn't that close. Seems you gotta get 11 yds to get a 1st down 1/2 the time with big 12 refs. I mean how hard is it to mark a spot with 6 refs?

    Epps is young and he will evolve. I think part of the problem with Epps is that we’re not playing to his skill set, his height. When Sam learns to throw “in his catching range,” we’ll see a difference. If a 6’6” receiver is being covered by a 6’0 DB, higher throws present a big problem.

    Epps has good hands. We need to take advantage of his size.

    Is he not thick enough to play TE because he's not twisty enough to pay wide out?

    He is young He needs less reps

    I was thinking the same thing. WR need to learn block especially when they see the QB take off. At least get in the way of the defender if you wont block!!!

    As a parent of 2 Longhorns grads & know a ton of kids/parents there now, I assure you this issue is NOT on the students. I’m glad we have CDC, but they need to get their s*** together on this problem. They keep moving the goalposts (excuse the pun!) on the seating/admission system. Crap, with modern technology, just have the students who bought the season ticket package get “reserved” seats online the week of each game....pretty damn simple! Aggy has a great system (hard to believe, I know!)....and most of the entire east side of Pyle is for students....tons more student seats than DKR allocates. Yea, I know some kids won’t show up, but sure beats this madness and chaos of an “ACL festival” type policy & tweaking this week-to-week.

    Seriously, aggy kicks our a** when it comes to the student experience....albeit it’s the ONLY thing they get right in their football program!

    They (aTm) had telephone registration a few years before we added it. While ags were calling in to schedule their classes, we were in lines all day at an extremely chaotic Frank Erwin Center, trying to get the classes we needed. This situation is similar. IMHO, our admin has a long history of being slow to adapt to and figure out new and better technologies...

    Lot of people saying the complete opposite. The kids asked for GA seating and then decided to rush the gates a few weeks ago. Seems like consequences of their actions. I agree it could be done better but let’s be real not enough seats for all of them that’s why they stress the getting there early part.

    Yea, I get this. But, UT shouldn’t just implement whatever the students want. They need to create a system that works. I take input from my employees, but they don’t run my company. If my company policies fail, that’s on me....not my employees.

    Not sure what policy would work best for UT, but whatever it is now is not working. If the students don’t show up because they whine about this or that, too bad for them. It worked well when I was in school in the 1970’s....and the only REAL difference today is just more students and more seats. With modern technology, sure seems to me this shouldn’t be too complex. I mean, if aggy can do, ANYBODY can do it!!

    He did exactly that, he implemented his own policy and made sure what happened at the LSU game didn’t happen again by only opening one gate to each section. Yes it slowed down traffic but ask yourself would you rather have people hurt because the actions of others and face injury and negligence lawsuits or deal with a few students upset because they had to wait in line a littler longer because they wanted to drink a few more beers before they went to stand in line. I witnessed the LSU mayhem first hand I saw the fights the drinks being thrown and everything else and im happy I didn’t bring my kids that day. Had law enforcement pulled out that pepper spray and went to town people would still make excuses for the way those students acted but me personally I would have thought they deserved it.

    Back from the game wondering how the announcers handled the penalties. At one time I thought tackling was a penalty.

    Along with the obvious dumb a-s mental mistakes I thought the team was not as ready to play as they could have been, and one more time the staff failed to call the plays on offense late in the game in the other teams end of the field to put the game away. Champions know how to finish and put a team away and get a one yard gain to keep a drive alive. A lot of games can be won without the ability to play power football in these situations but I would suggest that championships will not be won with this deficiency. What is wrong with running a big back with lead blockers off tackle for a yard? Sam was tentative and hesitating, and with an empty backfield on the last such try.

    Great game to win and what a job they have done with the offensive line, the defensive front and the coaching up of the running backs.

    Hard to exactly compare because teams didn't go hurry up all game like they do now. Lot more possessions today than there were when VY played.

    I normally agree with you, but IMO we hardly run a hurry up. Yes, we hurry up to the line, look like we will run a play, then all stand up and look at the sideline for ~10 seconds before actually running a play.

    Well, we hurry up to the line, look like we will run a play, and then we see the LSU player on the ground calling for a cold Gatorade.

    On a more serious note (spell check wanted to say “amore serious”), the point of that running up and waiting is that it still keeps the other team from changing players. Then, call the play that may work against those players.

    Much preferred negotiating for certain classes, schedules and professors in Gregory Gym before computer scheduling was intrduced.

    I thought Epps played badly, but I haven’t looked at the TV version. Twice on deep balls he just didn’t run through the end, once almost allowing an INT (in NW endzone), and on the deep ball in the SE corner, he didn’t even get a hand on it, even though it seemed catchable if he had tracked it. Was he the one the INT went off of?
