We demand less defense and more scoring immediately!
Holiday Bowl Open Thread
Cal starting to move the ball fairly well
Edit: Of course right as I say that Cal goes 3 and Out...
Sweet sack by that Texas guy though
Jessie Palmer is really enthusiastic about a guy who's averaging 3.6 yards/pass.
Ed: Why don't the Longhorns just put a couple of those athletes on offense and run a wildcat all game. That'd be good for 14-17 points per game.
Compared to Jessie's NFL career.
S on the chest well earned. I guess that's the 5 star difference.
I must say that Meeeeaaack Brown is overrated as a coach. Not a competent game manager and oblivious to offensive (pun) football. While the last 3 years have not been easy for us, think about Texas for a moment. They have a top 5 recruiting class every year and never have to leave their own state to recruit! They also have their recruiting classes filled two years out.
I remember a national championship game in 2009-10. That's not too bad.
He's proven himself at Texas. Being an injury away from winning an NC earns him the right to the chance to get them back on track. That was the worst injury of the decade (impact on the game-wise), because it led to an SEC addicition by ESPN and probably attributed to the rematch this year. All anyone ever brings up is the SEC championship streak.
Drive still alive for Tejas.
Never mind, penalty killed that.
Wow....great fake punt knocked out by a Illegal Formation
EDIT: MOAR SACKS!
The Raiders 35 yard TD on a fake FG called back because of delay of game.
Score 33 on Cal? WTF Texas?
This could one of the more boring games I've ever seen
Texas is 7-5 yet they're ranked #24. What's up with that?
Big 12 is the greatest conference ever. Just ask the computers.
7-0 against unranked teams, 0-5 against ranked teams (all blowouts.)
Most notable win was a 2 point victory over 6-6 Texas A&M. Somehow, that equals to a top 25 ranking. Most impressive resume.....ever.
You answered your question with your first word.
they're unranked in the polls. It's all computers. Robots have them at 19.
Good point, I forgot they used the BCS rankings for broadcasts. Can we never reference "PREDICTOR" again just because TAMU was ranked 11th in Jeff Sagarin's BCS computer rankings at the end of the regular season?
Is that points?
3 lob passes in a row to get a TD
Tailback throw back to the quarterback. Russel Wilson caught a few passes like that this year.
Nothing screams "we have a solid offense" like running a reverse pass from four yards out.
Aaand Cal gets the kickoff to their own 43.
Is Ricky Williams the guy you want to say "come to our University and emulate"?
So is Texas about to start chucking the ball all over the place now?
Ash or McCoy? No. Statistics say otherwise. Random skill position players? Possibly.
Can Texas break through on 3rd and 2?
Stop committing penalties! All of you! Now!
Nice try on the flop by the texas punter
Two dropped shotgun snaps?
Shocker, on the halftime stuff Lou Holtz picks Notre Dame to beat FSU
Christ I just saw the score, glad I'm not watching.
Texas seem like they just play lazy. Huge and talented with no motivation or fire.
Maynard's dad. Looks like him. Yawn.
Toss is the worst play in football in any level past high school freshman football.
Wow. Cal is TURRIBLE (since this seems to be the meme of the day).
Which qb is worse? I say ash but they're both horrible.
I would say Ash.
Cal must have played some terrible teams or the PAC12 must have had terrible pass defenses if he can put up over 3000 yards passing.
Cal loves turning the ball over whenever they are in a slightly favorable position.
Neither o line looks any good either. I'm not down on the bowls but these teams are not good vs other holiday bowls.
One guy on local radio in socal today were railing on the fact that there are too many bowl games. He said that a team like UCLA doesn't really deserve to go to the bowl game with a losing record (6-7).
The other guy was for it, but watching some of these games I can see why people are becoming negative towards all these bowl games.
I personally love it. It allows us to get more practice time for our young players and give our seniors one last game.
And this game still sucks.
I don't understand why Cal is not in a BCS bowl and Stanford is. Stanford didn't even win their division.
Why is Stanford? They lost to the only put together football team they played, and badly.
USC was a pretty good victory, even if it took 3 OTs. Without sanctions, USC was easily a top 10 team.
I can't look at our VT match up and legitimatley argue with you, so fair enough.
EDIT: Same for Farnn.
USC was a pretty good team this season, they just don't show up in the rankings due to post season ineligibility.
