    Against a good SEC or Big 12 team, he would have had 2 or 3 picks last night. That is true.

    I didn't say they are a good team, but they have been terrible the previous two seasons. Let me correct that. Horrible. At least now they can score points now and have direction. They aren't untalented either as Nutt was a pretty good recruiter, just as bad coach. Not saying there was anything impressive about UT's win, but the line was less than 10, many were calling this an upset special and it was quite frankly even a surprise to many UT fans that they scored so much.

    Texas received a commitment from Ath - Chevoski Collins this weekend. Collins plays DB and WR at Livingston. Same position Phillips plays I believe.

    Caleb Benenoch, OG Katy Seven Lakes has stated that Texas is now 1st on his list after his visit for the West Virginia game.

    we still have a lot to play for, i think we can finish off the season with only 1 more loss and maybe get into a BCS bowl, at least the cotton bowl vs a top SEC team would be nice! id like to see how we measure up against someone like LSU, whom will probably be in the cotton if they lose to bama

    I agree that loss sucked, but I mean we're going up against the best quarterback and argurably best team in the nation. Kinda figured we weren't gonna win that game. Still in all there's some positive things to take away. Ash continues to play well and really the offense in general has played well. Texas's problem was offense it's defense, but then again who can stop Geno Smith? No one on the planet can. You know people say Luck was the best quarterback prospect in the last decade or so, but I think Geno may actually turn out even better.

    Luck is the best Pro QB prospect since Elway IMO. A lot to like about Gino Smith but Luck was a better prospect IMO.

    I have always been a huge Andrew Luck fan. Like you say he is a great QB, and easy to like. Plus his dad Oliver is currently WVU AD, and was our QB in the early 80's under Don Nehlen.

    But it will be interesting to see how Geno does at the next level. He looks ready to me.

    There are plenty of Texas athletes that look great, too bad they play for OU.

    Mack is not going any where.

    January 26, 2012
    AUSTIN, Texas -- University of Texas regents voted unanimously Thursday to extend coach Mack Brown's contract by four years to the end of the 2020 season.

    "It is important to us to have Mack Brown as our football coach as long as we can," Texas president Bill Powers said. "And this is an expression of that."

    "They are weak. They are timid. And they are soft. And we have seen this movie before. It keeps happening at the University of Texas. The only constant is the head coach. If they’re content with doing this, if they’re content with allowing their arch rival to put half-a-hundred on them every-other-year, then stay with the status quo. If they’re not, then there needs to be a change… You need to teach toughness. They don’t do that. This is a soft football team. They got pushed around. They embarrassed the entire alumni base. They embarrassed every football player that has ever played over there. It was sickening to sit there and watch that. And you can come up with every excuse you want to come up with, there’s only one simple solution to this problem: there needs to be a (coaching) change.”--Brian Jones

    manny diaz needs to be exiled from Austin. His defense is non-existent. They can't tackle or cover. They never know where to line up, tonight they look as lost as a kid on his first day in a new school. They also commit way too many penalties. They are the worst team in college football and getting stops on 4th down.

    I absolutely hate this defense and I have less than zero trust in the unit. Diaz is a complete farce. I want Muschamp or Chisik back.
