What is the pulse out there?
National Director of Scouting & Recruiting Analyst
Texas wins a close one. 63-60
If the defense has one, Texas 21-17. If not could get ugly.
Just not feeling it. Oregon State 38 Horns 28.
Hope I'm wrong, but maybe this will help show Diaz the door if Mack decides to stick around. At least our Athletic Dept is good at making money.
A banged up TEXAS squad limps into the Alamo dome with a big hat and few cattle..
A motivated group of Beavers delights in the south Texas ambiance and displays their joy by covering the line..
Thus another nail in the coffin
My hope is we win the TO & field position battles, plus, Ash needs to regain his confidence & perform like in Ole Miss, TT, Baylor...OK, if that happens we win this one by 31-24...
I look for big games from our playmakers on both sides of the ball...Special teams will be a "wild card" call for this fan...plus performances there could add another TD in the mix...
I fully realize we are playing the #13 BCS team & that most fans do not share my optimism...oh well, we can all hope, right?

This one seems a toss up. Mack is pretty good at getting the troops motivated for bowl play and I believe Ash will benefit from Applewhite getting in his headset. Texas 38 oregon State 24.
I also hope our mods pick Oregon State.
Texas 45 OSU 42.
Mack does well in bowls and I believe Ash will have a good game. Major will get the ball to the speedy playmakers. Here is a bold prediction. DJ Monroe will get 5 touches in this game.
I think Texas can win if the amount of touches from Goodwin + Monroe + Johnson > Bergeron.
The wildcard is Major. Will he be boxed into a 60-65 play a game tempo or be allowed to push it toward 80 snaps.
If Texas can score more than 30 the more I like our chances. If it stays low give me OSU.
Right now lets go 27-24 Beavers
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

I question how much anyone can do in 10 practices.
I really hope that Texas under Major goes back to 15 scripted plays to start games, because you can run those 15 plays at any pace. Then build the in-game adjustments off those 15 plays.
Oregon State 25
As many times as this squad has layed an egg and come out flat, I don't have enough confidence to pick the Horns. Regretfully going with OSU by at least a touchdown.
Sad but I have been reduced to hoping to keep it close and not get our asses kicked on national television.
Texas OL cannot move the Oregon DL. Hopkins being out does not help. No running room. Putting it all on Ash's shoulders won't work. Kid from Pflugerville runs wild on _iaz's abortion.
Tx - 17
Beavers - 38
Oregon state 28
Based on the Vegas spread and O/U it should be close to:
OSU 30 - Texas 27
The kids will try hard and Mike Riley will be given a lot of credit in the post game presser.
