I remember when this was a staple of the UT passing game in the Applewhite and before era. It seems to be very effective the great majority of time, but is something that UT has basically dropped from its repertoire as a primary tool in its passing game arsenal. Any thoughts on why?

Nothing official yet.
I'm sure Mack will say something at tomorrow's presser.

Santos' didn't appear to be serious. Don't know when we'll know publicly on Hicks' injury but I'll see what I can find out.
I heard a bad groin pull from a very good source in the stands at the game.
This thread seems to be a little jumbled up. Am I drunk, again?
Sorry, my fault. The original title of thread was "What is status of Hick's injury?". Then I went all the way down the list of topics and noticed it had already been asked a couple of times. So I changed the topic within 5 minutes of posting, but the Hookem guys are good and fast on the responses !! They are responding to my original question.
My guess is that those pesky rules about only running one play at a time using one ball at a time kind of rule out running every single play in the playbook every week. BTW, I am also a big fan of the crossing routes. My guess is that we'll see both before the season is done.
"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.
Especially with a Shipley on the roster.
I'm interested in this as well. Kind of been on the back of my mind for a while now, actually. Any folks have any educated ideas as to why we don't run it, other than the fact that there aren't enough plays in the game? Seems like a simple route that can help get the QB into the flow of the game.
A slant can be a great route with an experienced QB. But, you are throwing into a fairly congested area and if something goes wrong it will really go wrong. As long as we have plenty of options , the slant can wait another game or three.
Slants are harder to throw if the D has 8 in the box to stop the run. The passing lanes are generally more congested due to the extra guys in the box.
isn't simply a fact that we have changed from the zone read which sent runs outside to an off tackle power game? That changes where the D concentrates. Then we spread them out, hit over the middle, now we pack them in and throw over the top or outs.
(sorry did not read the two guys above, what they said)

We also pass a lot out of playaction which doesn't lend itself to slants.
