umm...I wouldn't be to thrilled with the 3-0...struggling with Maine, beating a team that lost to Vandy, and beating a horrible Pitt team that went 2-5 with field goals...

I was not impressed by Nebraska's offense and Taylor at all, they played horrible all 3 games...But what will keep you in is that D...they've gotten a lot better than last year..the upgraded the speed and barely miss zone assignments...

Your test will come against Iowa State...

Amen, Zac Taylor didn't look horrible... But that offense doesn't look like it's goin anywhere very fast. The blackshirts will keep them in the season, but if their offense plays like that in conferencem it will be a long year in Lincoln.

I like the Huskers, but I am dissapointed with how they couldn't do anything against Pitt. Their offense scored only 7 points. I mean, how the hell is that gonna cut it in the Big 12? With that kind of performance, even CU might be able to beat them.(Sorry bout that, just had to say it :heh: )

LOL since you like CSU and the Huskers, I figured it was fitting..

But if they play that way against CU or Iowa State, they would just eat them up...the game is in Boulder this year isn't it? If it is, you guys have no chance..

The CU - Nebraska game is at Folsom Field in Boulder. So, I hate to say this, but I think that the Buffs are gonna kick the Huskers ass, cause the Huskers are not playing that well on offense.

Nebraska is bad, they have been underwhelming and will struggle when their above average defense cannot support it's lackluster offense. Likewise, in the South, Oklahoma State is bad, and will be exposed by any team with a pulse.

Their D has been pretty solid, though you can't really tell by the competition. I think the O will click more and more as the season goes on and Bobby gets more and more confidence.

It's amazing how similar OU and OSU's teams have been, although OSU has been able to spend more time in the WIN column.

OSU will crumble, just watch. I believe they open up their Big XII home schedule with Colorado and Missouri, two teams with solid offenses and stout defenses. I just don't see how you can win many games in the Big XII with average rushing quarterbacks. I'd like to see Reid throw more, but they seem bent on letting him pounf the ball away between the tackles with his 6'2 230 frame.

Oklahoma is a much better team than OSU, it's just that OSU has played nobody of significance. A solid passing team will torch that unproven OSU secondary. I think that Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech will be the Big XII south leaders this season.

Oklahoma! They're getting things together just in time before the Red River Shootout, scurry thought for Texass....


And come on, of course CU...as soon as anyone else wins the North then they can be considered the team to beat...

I think Texas only struggles against Oklahoma and Texas A&M. Oklahoma's offense will pose little threat to that strong Texas D, but the score will stay low because Texas' offensive weakness will be on display when OU's linebackers attempt to bottle Young. It could get ugly in favor of Texas is OU's defensive ends play like they did in the second hald of the UCLA game, becasue there will then be little containment for Young. Vince may not be quite the prospect people think he is, but he is a helluva college QB that is a tough matchup problem. I still say Texas wins by a touchdown and a field goal, but it will stay tighter than many analysts will lead you to believe.

A&M poses another threat as a rivalry and a talented core of players that could be playing for the South title. They have the closest match to Texas' experienced talent. Again, though, Texas will prevail and I believe they will head into the Big XII title game undefeated. Looking at that Texas defensive line and experienced secondary, this could be the best Texas defense under Mack Brown.

The North will once again be a sacrifical lamb for a South Steamroller. Colorado and Iowa State look much improved, but neither has exhibited a depth of talent to hang with the South's elite. CU's run defense could be gashed this weekend by Tyrone Moss, as it proved leaky against CSU at times. Also, Miami's athletes will outmatch CU's offense, giving everyone a glimpse of what Texas' athletes may be able to do to them. Miami may be down a bit on offense, but this defense may be one of the best Colorado will face this year, outside of Texas.

Iowa State outscored an overrated Iowa offense made worse by the loss of its overrated QB. Iowa State still looked pretty polished that game, and their one-two-three punch of Meyer-Hicks-Blythe may be the best in the Big XII North. They aren't deep, however, and may falter down the stretch, but I don't see how anyone outside of Colorado will contend with them.

The North looks like a complete toss up between ISU and CU, but whoever wins will likely be thrown to the wolves against Texas. North teams should make it an effort to make this year's title game decided within two touchdowns, that in itself would be a mild accomplishment.

While you're pretty much right on with this, I would just caution you to get too high on this 'South is far superior to the North' view. Historically the South is only up 5-4 in the Championship, and things can change dramatically from year to year. And this year, yeah it would be somewhat of a victory to upset a strong TX team, not too much unlike 2001?

Actually, I think the North is more balanced, with 3 or 4 teams who could pull through and win. Colorado looks solid. Missouri....with Brad Smith who know what they can pull off. Iowa State looks stronger than a lot of people expected. Nebraska, well, they always have good linemen...lol. Kansas and K-State, who knows?

The South is top heavy, with the Sooners not being in that top half for the first time since 1998. Texas is the favorite, with 2nd being a toss up in my opinion between Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Looks like OU and OSU will be battling for 4th, unless one of the really starts to jell when Big XII play starts.

Can Texas shut down Texas Tech's offense?

mrsolo
09-22-2005, 08:49 PM
Can Texas shut down Texas Tech's offense?

It's hard to tell. I really just depends on matchups. More than shutting them down, you have to keep them out of the endzone. Let them kick 5 or 6 field goals. That's only 15-18 points. Texas will be able to run on them and that will keep their offense off the field.

OU has has a lot of success either shutting them down or at least containing them the last 5 years. I'm not too confident in how they'll hold up this year though since they have to go to Lubbock. Could be a looooooong day. :mad:

This year nebraska falls.. I dont see them beating CU KU ISU or MU.. KSU is still down so theyve got a shot at them but i wouldnt be surprised to see NU lose to them as well.. The north could very well run the table on the huskers.. As for the north title, its CUs to lose..
Texas, this ones tough.. They will win the Big 12, but i dont think theyll go undefeated.. Im gona go out on a limb and say they get beat by a team they shouldnt, like missouri or ok st.. someone like that.. Without looking at the schedule ill stick with my bold prediction and pinpoint 2 weeks that it could happen.. Either the week before or the week after their date with OU.. The week before they might be overlooking a team, and the week after they could very well get caught up in a letdown..

That may be so, but when the North was winning they had some real talented teams, like Chris Brown's Colorado team. This Colorado team bares little resemblance to the 2001 team. while I won't argue that the talent is better this year than in year's past, look at what that team had up front. I think only Brian Daniels could start on that line, and that group put almost every starter in the NFL. Barnett would kill to have Gurode and Rogers back. I think the backs are a wash, because I really believe, if given the chance, Vickers could be a standout power back, but the "V" back flirtation gives him little looks. Vickers was the best ball carrier on the team last year. I also think that Pesavento might have been better than Klatt, being that Klatt is largely overhyped and was only average last sason and the start of this season. This year's d-line doesn't have any Tyler Brayton's, and the linebackers of the '01 team were very underrated. I also think the secondary was better then as well, with the play of Moorer and Strickland being the difference. This Texas team, however, could be much better defensively than that one.

I really only see a slightly improved Colorado team over last season. I also won't be suprised if Colorado gets trounced by Miami in a similar fashion to the FSU game last season. This is a team that is once again good enough o get by, but not deep enough to wreak havoc. Remember that he '01 team was special in its ability to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, I don't think this year's team has the horses to do so.

Nothing about the North suggests a split from the current trend of South Dominance. The talent inequality is too great at the moment.

Texas should control Tech fairly well because of their dominant secondary and pass rush. I also think they can hang with them in a shoot out. It will take a special performance to up-end Texas this season, but why not let them go all the way. They'll only be the sacrifical lamb to the Trojan machine. The most overhyped game of the weekend is that UO vs. USC game. USC in a laugher, take it to the bank, Oregon is still average.

Historically, Texass has always struggled with teams the week leading up to the OU game......
...and have gone undefeated afterwards.

But that was back when OU was "the big game"......so I'm not sure about this year.

Oregon is very average..probably below average..but everybody wants to hype up USC, but honestly they have a great, proficient offense..an average D..and they play NOBODY all year, so they'll probably go undefeated... I love the Irish, but their D can't handle USC's offense, we'll see..

It's still a huge game...did you know conference play hasn't started yet? That means if they win the Big 12, they're in a BCS Bowl... I was watching the UCLA/OU game on the U today and it looked like everything was coming together, just some things needs to be ironed out...mostly a lot of mistakes on the offense (Bomar holding the ball too long, not throwing it away, center/QB exchance, etc)...

OU's front seven is very good, the secondary is a little shaky at times, but AD and the D is keeping them competetive..

I wasn't there, I didn't see it go down, all I know is that they probably should keep players separate from fans...because players are already geared up on adrenaline and shouldn't have to put up with fans getting in their face.
