I want to see hpsluggas grading come out and be very happy in every single category.
A dominating performance by the O-Line!!!!!
It has been a very long time since that's happened, even against inferior talent.
A vertical passing game, even if Davis wants to keep the flavor vanilla. We may not want to show our hand yet but we should at least threaten that we have a hand to show.
Agreed on the O-line dominance. Too many high class recruits to not control the line against a juggernaut like Wyoming.
Of course I want to see our Horns answer the bell and play well in all phases of the game. But the #1 thing I want to see is for our O-Line to come out and establish themselves as a nasty, mean bunch of bulldozing *************. If that happens, this season will go very well for us.
Wyoming is likely going to play D like they did last year, which involved keeping the DB's way the hell off the line to prevent any deep stuff, so don't count on too much from the vertical game. Any verticals Texas hits will be a product of establishing either the run or short passing game (or both) early on.
Regarding WorsterMan's call for more spread O, I'd agree but with one qualification: play a general scheme that resembles what Texas would do against a much better team. Forget this "work on the run game" crap. Good offenses don't do that. When good offenses know they're gonna pass a lot, they pass a lot at the beginning the season. They run as often in week 1 as they do in week 12. You're not gonna see Tech or Houston or other teams of their ilk lining up in their power sets and plunge into the line in their OOC games. And they don't do that for a reason: the WR's need game experience in a capacity other than "wide blocker." When you "work on the run game" and later turn into a passing team, which is what Texas has done many times before, you put your WR's behind schedule when you make that transition. For example, if a team is being that stubborn about "working on the run game" and the season were in week 8, it wouldn't be like a week 8 for the WR's in terms of the passing game. It'd be more like week 5 for them. That can only hurt a passing offense. It certainly doesn't help. Just because such an approach might balance out the stats doesn't mean opponents will see you as a "balanced offense."
Lots of horn points.
No Cowboy points.
Lots of yards running, lots of yards passing, lots of emotion.
A Muschamp/Jeffcoat flying chest bump.
What I want to see and what I expect to see are two different things.
What I want to see is 500+ yards of Texas offense (no matter how it's achieved) with whatever points that produces to win the game.
Practicing the passing game on a team where the running game is regarded by the 30+ year-experienced coaches as weaker than the passing game will simply produce a less experienced running game. You have to pick your poison -- even if you think the passing game does require more coordination and timing. I'll trust Mack to figure out how to start the season. He's betting $5 million on it every year. I doubt anybody on this board has that much at stake.
I want to see a couple of first downs or tds on 3 or 4th and 1 running the ball straight ahead.
I like the mental gymnastics some people go through on this site to justify everything mac and davis have done.
Look, no one is ever going to argue that mack or even davis arent good coaches.
However, taking a team with players from a state that played the spread all throughout high school, with linemen who blocked for the spread all throughout high school, with runners who are used to run with the spread all throughout high school and trying to make them work with a more run oriented "traditional" offense is stupid. Period.
Mack was likely hoping to establish the run this year to take the pressure off GG from needing to be a colt or vince and was hoping the talent of the lineman and the running back by committee would do it. But the fact is, he's wrong. He's been right many times before. But he's wrong this time if he or Davis or whoever things it will work.
A lot of people see the "200 yards" stat and ignore than 65% of our offense or more was forcing the run. With the same amount of effort, we could have had 500 yards passing and 3 more td's on the board. Then scared their DBs off the line so much that our running game probably still would have gotten 150 and would have been able to punch it in at 1 and 10 on the line.
Its ok to critisize mack and still think he and davis are some of the better coaches of this era if not possibly all time. I do. Both have demonstrated that they are (very slowly) capable of change, of adjusting, and even at 60 years old, able to keep up with the game and young guns like meyer.
But this offense, if it does not change dramatically very soon, is a bad idea. And "forcing it" now only takes away game time experience from perfecting what our offense and players have spent their entire football careers playing for: the spread.
I hope we move away form last weeks offense and do what we are more keyed for. I hope gg passes for 300+, has 3 tds, and we have 1 rushing touchdown, no bad mistakes and no turnovers.
Absolute domination by our O-line. everything else will fall into place if that happens.
Unless Gilbert scrambles, he should not hit the turf. Also would love to see 250+ yards rushing. We probably have the most talented O-line in the nation and there in no reason why they shouldnt be able to completely bulldoze Wyomings D-line.
I would love to see OU and FSU, but for some reason Iowa and Iowa St. are on.
