Default Texas -- Oklahoma game!

I slipped away after this latest touchdown to write this post. If I am wrong, then I will have to eat crow for a while. BUT...I am going to call it, with only around 4 minutes in the game, Texas is going to win it.

I didn't think so at first, but my gawd, I think they are now!

Y'all heard it here first! LOL

Yeah, it really was a good one, ATD. I confess, practically speaking, I really didn't expect Texas to play as well as they did. I just hope they can do the same next week against Missouri....

I don't expect Texas to be voted Number 1 in the next poll that comes out, but they will likely be 3 (with some first place votes) at the least. If they can beat Missouri, then that assures a top spot, I would think.

What worries me though is the "beating" they had to have taken in the Oklahoma game. THEN...to have to recover and play yet ANOTHER top-ranked team. It is not like they are going to have a week off by playing Rice or something...

That too. If nothing else, Texas oughta get the honor of Number One just by virtue of the fact they are playing about the TOUGHEST schedule of any team in the country!

They just knocked off Oklahoma. Now have to face Missouri...and THEN Texas Tech.

I confess to that a lot of my analogies involve Texas/Southern history, but in this case it truly fits. The reason Grant finally prevailed against Lee was NOT that the former was a better general or his troops better fighters. In fact, Grant even admitted such. For that reason, he used a hammering blow strategy. Theretofore, all the yankee generals, after getting their butts tore up, withdrew to lick their wounds...which in turn gave the South -- with our lesser manpower -- time to heal our own...and be prepared the next time.

Grant though recognized this and attacked and attacked again. He lost far more men than did Lee...but he had more men to spare. This was what Lee later said he feared most. A Union general who recognized and acted upon the greatest weakness of the Confederacy. That is, that THEY could replace their men...the South couldn't. So the yankees just kept hammering away, never letting up...

Ok..y'all...I really AM trying NOT to make this a speech in "Civil War" history! LOL Point is, the season Texas faces is somewhat akin. Just as Lee's army easily beat the first army the north threw at them, it became harder and harder as time went on. I will always believe that the North never whipped the South. Rather, our great grandfathers just wore ourselves out whipping them!

Same with the Texas schedule. They just came off a tremendous beating, physically, with Oklahoma. Can they recover enough to beat Missouri? And THEN...Tech?

Other than OU, Texas pretty much owns the Big 12. Especially the north. They know what it takes to beat Missouri -- and at home, it should be doable. Mizzou has half the defense that OU has, so it will simply be another game plan of slow drives & keep their offense off the field. Same game plan we use for Texas Tech EVERY YEAR.

So next week will be a win. Then comes OSU and Texas Tech. OSU has a major revenge factor going, as we've made some embarassing comebacks from huge leads by them. In the end, though, we know how to play them (as we do that every year)... and we have the better talent. So, another win. Texas Tech, same thing... we'll be playing in Lubbock, which will be tough, but in the end it's simply another Tech game. We've got the game plan to beat them, and we will do so again.

I'm actually more worried about the nothing-to-lose aggies we'll be playing the day after thanksgiving! Especially given the last couple of years.

Super game and the Florida Gators taking care of LSU was an added bonus!
