2011 College Football Is Almost Here

Texas Has Issues

Since Mack Brown came to Texas, he has led them to be a consistent top 10 team that wins 10+ games per season and challenges for national titles–until last year. The wheels fell off and the Horns coughed up a losing record. Mack has to put the pieces back together and it looks to be a little more difficult than he figured. This season doesn’t look to be too promising with the returning players he has to work with.

They still haven’t named a starting quarterback which doesn’t show a lick of confidence in any of them given how badly last year’s returning signal caller fared. Gilbert was lost in the huddle and during plays. A year’s experience hasn’t taught him much. The receivers don’t appear very dangerous, their running backs haven’t panned out and their freshman hopeful may be overrated. The offensive line has a couple of good players but overall, they aren’t difference makers. Some think their defense might be pretty good but they are getting a host of new coaches and they will get tired trying to carry a three-and-out offense all season.

Add to this a bunch of young guys that want to tell the coaching staff how to coach and who to play and who complain about having tight muscles all the time. Here is some of the stuff you get to see if you watch the Longhorn Network. Watch this video and see what Mack Brown has to deal with, with his current team.

Oh well, they are Texas and they have the Longhorn Network wreaking havoc on the stability of the Big 12 conference. Thanks, Texas.

Bye-Bye A&M

Texas A&M is reported to be leaving the conference tomorrow. We will see if this comes to pass. Someone has to want them and the SEC, at least publicly, has been saying they don’t want A&M, at least at the moment. Perhaps there is even bigger news concerning conference expansion than we know about fixing to happen. If this does happen, look for either a quick jump to add more members to the Big 12 or the Big 12 will not be in existence in a year or two.

LSU Woes

I knew there were character issues down in the bayou. Fans who have to travel to that part of the country are often greeted by some of the nastiest hosts on the planet. LSU fans, in my opinion, belong in the foreign soccer world. They have no respect for the game. All they seem to care about is getting drunk and throwing bottles at visiting fans and cussing out the older boosters. On top of that, they  have one of the goofiest acting coaches in all the NCAA. Look at this older OSU video–Let ‘er rip. By the way, he lost this game against Oklahoma.

Now, I am not saying Les Miles can’t coach but he is a weird duck and sometimes he does some very stupid things. Watch this video when he tried to call a timeout during a change of possession where the clock stops anyway. One of his assistants runs over and pushes him back into the sideline hoping the refs don’t see his ignorance and cost them an unnecessary timeout.

Now we see that they will be without their starting quarterback, Jordon Jefferson, and backup linebacker, Josh Johns, for a while because of a bar brawl leading to them being accused of assault just this past week. LSU, you are giving the U a run for their money in thuggery. Let ‘er rip, Les?
