    I can see UT running the table

    and going to the NCG this season.

    Key games;

    @ BYU
    Ole Miss
    KSU
    vs. OU
    OSU

    Thoughts? Tell me in detail which games UT loses and why.

    KSU. Because Mack Brown can't beat Bill Snyder.

    I never want to see ISU lose, but if Texas beats us, runs the table, and beats the SEC champ in NCG, I would have no regrets about that loss. The SEC needs to be toppled, and if its a Big 12 team doing the toppling, I can live with us losing to them.

    Yeah, I didn't realize it's been FIVE straight losses.

    Yeah, I suppose they should've made the list of key games but I sort of have a "believe it when I see it" attitude about TCU.

    Re: I can see UT running the table

    I don't think there is a game they can't win, but I don't see how they run the table when you combine that schedule with inconsistent QB play. I see them around 8 wins this season.

    I think Ole Miss, OU, OSU, @Baylor, & @TCU are all toss ups. And I wouldn't be surprised to see someone else upset them.

    Re: I can see UT running the table

    Texas handily beat Ole Miss in Oxford last year. I think Texas is better this year and will do the same. I think UT roles until OU. I think UT is better, but it is a pretty big rivalry game so anything could happen. Then UT goes to TCU the next week, who I think will be pretty tough this year with their defense. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if UT lays an egg after playing OU. The game is also in Fort Worth, so I give TCU the slight edge in this one. If UT has one loss at this point, I think the championship will come down to the OSU game. I think this game will come down to how well OSU's offense can score against UT's defense. If Texas can keep the game close, then I think they have a chance. With one loss it is a gamble to make the NCG, but I guess weirder things have happened in college football.

    I guess I don't see UT running the table this year without at least losing one game. I think OSU has a much better chance, because at Texas is their only real test of the season.

    Re: I can see UT running the table

    Do people not realize that much of the Texas hype-machine is driven by ESPN? It's good for business to create buzz over UT being "back." They were 5-4 in the Big 12 last year! They can't beat OU and every team in Texas guns for them. It's like every year the Cowboys are going to be in the playoffs. Saying it doesn't make it happen.

    Re: I can see UT running the table

    I think Mack Brown has hit a coaching wall. I dont see them running the table at all. I would go with 8-9 wins this year though.

    Not me. I would MUCH rather beat Texas this year and have 'Bama repeat. Hell, if we could beat Texas this year I would be ok with 'Bama winning the NCG for the next 5 years. Let's worry about ourselves first.

    I think they end up around 8-4 or 9-3, can Mack Brown, and hire Charlie Strong.
