Is truly embarrassing.
...is always taking bad angles
...is never playing the correct gap
(I could go on)
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.”
Tackling is not the issue driving this bus....what can we do to rid ourselves of diaz. I am so tired of seeing people confused
Just me, but I see an improving def...
OU = 677 total yards
BAY = 604 total yards
OU = 63 points
BAY = 50 points
OU = 36 1st half points
BAY = 31 1st half points
Glass 1/2 full...take the positives...Manny made some adjustments this week, the numbers show it
Correct. If they were tackling they'd be undefeated. Missed Tackling is the problem. They do lead the world in those this year.
Are the kids just not able to understand manny's schemes? I don't know enough about xos to understand, but it seems like we have some talented kids? It really is embarrassing and frustrating when nobody even respects us enough to punt on 4th down
You are kidding, right?

This is funny
He is on the record. Bad call says I.
I Think he is trying to be too tricky....lets get 11 guys out there who know what they are doing and play some base defense....no blitzing, no sub packges, no confusion
The Longhorn defense couldn't stop a one legged man from winning an ass kicking contest.
So sick of the Sunshine pumping.
Manny needs to be fired IMMEDIATELY. I don't give a damn who calls the defense other than him.
This is slapstick comedy is what it is.
After last night I'm convinced we should've hired Phil Bennett.
how late the defense lines up and how often they are pointing at spots just before the snap and right after the play tells me they are thinking way too much. Football is supposed to be repetition to the point that something is instinct. Reading your keys that weeks should be learned earlier in the week. Lots of thinking going on, even in the secondary. Byndom especially looks lost. Remind anyone of the Aaron Williams regreesion? I think Akina may be throwing too much at the secondary as well, as I think he did that year. Diggs didn't have the effort either. I think he was just whipped. The D-Line is especially frustrating to watch. Too much trying to swim into a gap. It seems both Tackles are often swimming to the outside and the RB is skating right by them.
Conference opponents on fourth down:
11/11 converting the first
8/10 fg (two of the 12 fg allowed were on third down at the end of the first half)
Not improvement. We just had the ball a lot longer on offense, because Baylor's offense is so much worse than OU's.
mcb0703, do you ever get the feeling your wit is being wasted?
We get the sarcasm. We also remember that he was touting Manny as his choice for our next head coach.
Some do, anyway, and self-deprecating humor is sometimes the best kind.
In 10 years this defense will be legit!
Manny doesn't understand his schemes, because if he did we would stop executing them when the evidence presented to himself shows they don't work.
When you are hearkening for the days of Larry McDuff/Duane Akina defense, you are in trouble.
I think the only logically choice to come coach this defense if he wants to is Greg Robinson based on Mack staying and staff continuity.
I would like to apologize to vahorn for thinking, 6 months ago, that Manny Diaz would be the next head coach at The University of Texas. At the time of this prediction, I was under the apparently illogical thinking that Manny Diaz would be able to improve from last year's defensive performance, based on the quality of returning defensive players, and believed Manny Diaz would take over for Mack Brown in about 2-3 years.
Looking back, I now realize that my initial thought process should've been conveyed to vahorn for his approval prior to posting; how stupid I now feel. In retrospect, not seeing or realizing the amazing intellect previously shown on multiple occassions from vahorn, is a failure I will have to accept, come to terms with, and try to move on with my life.
vahorn, going forward, you can be assured I will forward all posts to you for prior approval before submitting to this board. It's your wisdom, and only your wisdom, that gets me through each day, with the sincere hope you'll be returning tomorrow. And in the end, as you have previously acknowledged about my prior posts, I sincerely hope you are able to "get the sarcasm" of this post.
