    Bench Horne

    With Horne dropping at least seven passes and Javis West coming in for him and scoring two touchdowns, Aaron should not see the field in the 2nd half. This is D1 ball and the coaches keep putting him in but his hands are cold. Boo hoo.

    Re: Bench Horne

    His last drop definitely should not have happened. He shouldn't have been in there to drop it.

    Yep, he should never step on the field the rest of the night.

    Hopefully the coaches don't give him a chance to make it a tough second half as well.

    No, that's what you do when someone is injured. In this case, you tell him to have a seat.

    After drop #4 I thought CPR would say "don't put him back in the game".

    Re: Bench Horne

    It looked like he had money riding on Baylor. And it looked like he was benched other than special teams at the end.

    Re: Bench Horne

    I've got to believe something is going on with that young man...he's normally a very good WR. Tonight he was like a drunk Darius Darks out there.

    Hopefully whatever was in his head tonight is cleared by next week. I was about to throw **** at the TV after his performance tonight...I can't afford another TV right now. : )

    Glad we won despite of the WR's efforts in the first half. 8 wins this year baby!

    Re: Bench Horne

    It's funny that he's able to catch punts but not passes. Usually you want a guy with good hands back there.


    Droppin' 3's like my name is Scotty C.

    Re: Bench Horne

    Combine last night's drops with the fact that he has refused to lay out to try to get to at least 3 catchable passes that I can remember this season, and he should not be a starter right now.

    Re: Bench Horne

    Did it scare everyone else to death, after Horne's 4th or 5th drop, when we put him back there to field a punt?

    Luckily it was a bad punt and Horne didn't have a chance to even attempt to catch it.
