124 days til RRR and time couldn't be passing by any slower ...
They should just hand me the $.
Bama-20 @ A&m - easy $
Lsu-8 @ A&m - Really? Wow, $$$
UF pick up vs Aggies - ill take gators.
Texas -11 vs Baylor- good line but I got TX by 13-17. Don't bet.
Texas -7 vs Tcu after a bye, take TX
Texas +3 @ ok St - take Texas $$
Texas -3 @Kst - stay away
Agree with everything. The OSU game I'm betting a lot on. A really dumb line by Vegas.
9 wins or more for four consecutive years will do that.
I expect the line will go down in the preseason as I think a lot of Texas fans will bet on the Longhorns when media previews come out.

I think most fans would be okay with "only" scoring 30 against USF and 21 against their biggest rival.
Texas +3 at OSU
Florida over A&M
OU -8 vs OSU (OSU is extremely overvalued)
Michigan +12 vs Alabama
USC -7.5 at Stanford
Some pretty juicy lines in that list.
Certain amount of truth in this ^^^...I mean I was okay with Texas only scoring 27 pts on Thanksgiving
And a&m is a better/stocked team compared to pitt, albeit that's not saying much for the lot of em
True . . . but said team would not be anointed the greatest offense in football for it either.
WVU was benefited by 4 Clemson turnovers and a team that quit.
Oh I don't really disagree with the your overall point. And I think you'll be proven correct. Just was having fun with those two examples.

-14.5 vs. Kansas State
-5.5 vs. Texas - at Dallas
-11 vs. Notre Dame
-17 vs. Baylor
-4 at West Virginia
-8 vs. Oklahoma State
-9.5 at TCU
Oklahoma will win most of those no doubt, but I bet they don't cover the spread in many of them.
We are going to kick OSU and KSU's asses in.

I would as well. Other than K-State, I would be all over these earlier lines.
Well, the question is how will people react after the first few games for texas? You guys dont really have a tough game in the OOC so the potential is there to look like things are back to normal. That, IMO, will make the line move more than anything. No real test early coupled with a fan base that is used to winning could have people putting out some bad bets. But we will see. OKst hasnt had a bad QB in a long time in that offense.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
Name the last true freshman whose eyes could not move from his first read because his sphincter had a death grip on his brain.
Gosh when I upvoted you for this I noted that someone had down voted you..
If this board downvotes folks for being University fans then maybe I need to moveon.
275-0 scoring margin

RG3 works for me. I googled and found this.
I'm trying to work through this but it's taking a while...

Right. I know. But I said preseason.
Ole Miss is expected to be a gimme game for the Horns, but the last time Texas went to the state of Mississippi in the month of September they got a rude welcome. Ole Miss does not have much offense, but their defense will be a tough test against the run IMO.

I tend to agree with this. Should be a good litmus of how strong the Texas rushing game really is.
Something like Cal without the stud receiver?
Q: Bobby, each time I re-watch that game I come away with the thought that a big part of our offensive problems revolve around inability to hold the line at the center position. We got abused that game . . . and others. I know there has been some board banter about OL lineup changes to resolve the issue, but I'm not sure where we stand. What are you seeing/hearing about what the coaches are doing to shore up that issue? Certainly they have identified it as and issue to be resolved over the off season, correct?
Yeah, each time I catch myself thinking we're going 12-1 next year, I go back and rewatch the Holiday Bowl, and I'm reminded how utterly horrible we were on offense in that game (across the board - oline, QB play, running game, Mike Davis drops - it's a little microcosm of the entire season).....but damn the defense played well!
I thought Ash did pretty well. Key #1: No mistakes. He also made plays when by miracle the center position held up for a moment or the coaches started rolling him out a little to get some time.
Now this isn't all on the center, because Cal's NG was a BAMF. But we play a lot of teams with a BAMF at NG/DT so coming into this year its a problem that must be fixed either through personnel or scheme or we will not meet expectations.
