Never realized how important I think Ash is this year. Don't think we can afford to lose him. He's the only true QB option we have. Case can't stretch the field and the young ones aren't ready yet. We lose Ash and we are going to lose games we should have won.
...is not required for direct intervention at this point.

I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Just saying that if it comes out that it is a minor injury to Ash you are going to be a happy man. I predicted with Ash Texas will win 10 games. If we ride McCoy I predict 8-9 wins this year.
Somebody get on the phone and call the Penn State Quarterback!!!!
hope its nothing to bad, but still not nice news to get a week before camps start where he was supposed the coaches the improvements he made over the summer. This program did not need this right now.
8 tops IMO. Case is a good backup but he's not the one that will lead us where I think we can go with decent QB play. He's too limited.
I tend to air on the side of lets just see what happens. I think he will be fine
Simmer down man has anything even been said yet? Jesus.... Let's see what up with him before we start throwing the season away! No offense you kinda sound like an Aggie...just sayin....
The SEC of signatures....
This made me chuckle
OMG! OMG! OMG!
How about we just see what happens, no?
Wasn't it me who warned people about not assuming who the starter would be? We have no idea what tomorrow will bring. Ash may just miss two-a-days and be fine for Sep. 1st. We just don't know. I am almost amused by the histrionics on this thread.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
Yikes. I popped my hamstring my senior year and only took 3 weeks to recover. I'm sure its along those lines. I don't think the gap between McCoy and Ash is as drastic as you make it out to be.

Typical sooner bullshit. The difference is between kicking your ass and having you stack the box making a long day for the horns. Run along. Anyone that can't see what just happened just doesn't get it.
lol good grief man, get a grip. The kid strained a hammy. He didn't blow out a knee. It sucks for him, but I feel moderately confident that the production of 125th rated QB in the country can be accounted for in some fasion, until he's ready to roll.

Jesus was reporting that he was throwing to spots and throwing his receivers open. Chemistry was clicking. I was thinking we really had something. He doesn't need time off. He needs to be getting rep after rep.
I think when I see my first back foot throw from Case, I'm gonna puke. The 1st ridiculous rainbow pass that gets picked off when the receiver was open by 7 yards will likely give me chest pains.
In 2005 we didn't count on Nordgren to win any games for us and that team was pretty talented. Ash isn't VY but Nordgren was better than Case.
The diffrence between McCoy and Ash, is Ash can throw the ball about 20 yards down the field further, and not rainbow the shit outta the ball. Although I am not worried about this minor tweek, make no mistake if we were to lose Ash and have to rely on McCoy we woul be in trouble since McCoy cannot stretch the field like we need to.
Over react much?
Texas quarterback Ash strains hamstring
Texas quarterback David Ash strained a hamstring in an unofficial workout Friday, but school sources told the American-Statesman the injury was not considered severe.
+1 for you sir. Well done.
"I was thinking we really had something."
That's what happens when you get all wrapped up in 7 on 7 reports. Remember last summer UT losing a 7 on 7 game against Texas State? Plus, you're relying on the reports of some jackass who has a well known reputation for throwing random stuff on the wall, hoping something sticks and won't use his real name. Is that really a reliable source?
