    Tyler Shough ("Shuck") will be the best QB we've faced thus far. Unfortunately for Tech, his supporting cast is a bit lackluster. PK and the D will need to show up strong, as our secondary will likely get their first big test. I think we'll be ready, and our pass rush will rattle him.

    Shough Against FIU:

    Make sure to make a new post with your changes since I don't usually go back through the thread for changes.

    And don't tell me you aren't going to make any changes...I know you.

    I'll rephrase my prediction, this time visually:

    (yeah, I know Doug was actually from San Antonio, but he's so much associated with Austin and the Austin music scene that we named a hill after him...)

    No one is ever as good or bad as they seem after a game. Tceh had trouble winning in Austin until the Dark Year's (Strong and Herman) so can Sark right the ship? Does the defense really understand the new system, and more importantly, can the defense stop Big XII offences? We probably will not start to understand until after TCU.

    Chop,

    Comparing or pairing Doug Sahm with Charles Harden Holley is sacrilege in most parts, particularly the music world, and may be a capital offense in several.

    To my knowledge, Sahm made no revolutionary changes in music, while Buddy Holly revolutionized every part of the music and recording industry.

    How about an update to Chop's comparison?

    Puts Austin in a little better light, at least.

    I have no opinion about Tech. No idea what their record is, etc. So as usual for me, predicting the outcome is like the blind leading the blind. But since that's the name of the game:

    A little help here. I'm not at all familiar with Tech's team so far, but I fear that if I don't make a pick I'll be outed by uh, someone... Most have Tech scoring into the 20's. Their offense, or our defense?

    George Bailey No beans in my chili, thank you

    The majority of my family are Red Raiders. All of them have a deep hatred of all things burnt orange. I'm allowed at family functions if I agree to keep my mouth shut. And they know I won't. The 1-2 times per decade that they beat us are absolutely unbearable. 2008 was the worst ever, I watched it with them. I sat there as they all cried and hugged afterward. I cannot respect this glorified high school on the high plains. [​IMG]

    Please do your jobs, Horns...
