I don't klnow how this game is going to turn out. UT will probably win, but I wouldn't overlook Tech. I just want to know everyones opinion on this.

These are my 2 favorite colleges but I'm gonna have to go with the Longhorns on this one. Tech may have put up large scores like 80 but i don't think they will score morre than 28 points in this game.

havent we had this discussion every year since Tech upset Texas that one time. Other than that Texas has handled the "system" very well. When it all comes down to it its still Texas vs Texas Tech.

Longhorns win though Tech will keep it close

Dang - this vote is pretty close - is TT that good? Who have they played? I just think the UT D line is going to get after Cody in a big way -and the TExas secondary is a bit better than the Huskers - like the bit of distance from Lubbock to Austin. I say Texas 45- TT - 24.

Ok, if someone speaks of the techs schedule again.......
Please take a look at UT's schedule next year....
SAM HOUSTON ST. DII,,,, thats right DII.

Now please hush up on the schedule issue. Tech plays UT this week.

Also, If I remember correctly...

2002- Tech-42, Texas-38
2003- Texas-43, Tech-40 (Austin)

Besides last year.... recently these games have been close. You can speak all you want about how Techs offense is going to be shut out and won't even get into the 20s, but in reality, Texas controlled Techs offense last year. Only one year, and last years is not this year.

Being a Tech student, I know Texas has everything to win. They show up, play their game, they will win.

I also have seen many UT years where everything is going right and people thought it was "the year" to win it all, and they slip up on a game. (Ark, OU, TT)

I will be driving down to Austin thursday night. Careful driving to all my fellow Red Raiders down to A-town, and lets take care of this game. Or atleast make it a game!

Texas Tech-31

At least you are being somewhat realistic in your prediction.

And yes Texas does have Sam Houston on their schedule next year. Why .................I don't know.

But they also have Ohio St. ....so it's not all creampuff.

I just don't see anybody other than the Indianapolis Colts scoring 30+ on the UT defense.

garlandredraider
10-19-2005, 04:50 PM
Sorry, made some changes on the 1st post, cause it was kind of trashy.

And the past 4 years, Tech has played Ohio State (when they won it all) at their place, we have played NC ST, Old Miss, TCU.

Next year Techs schedule is
SMU, TCU, UTEP.

TCU will probably be ranked and we play them in Ft. Worth.
UTEP is not terrible

We also have not filled that last game up yet with someone, so I am excited to see who it is. I heard Nebraska picked up USC.

And I know how great Texas' Defense is great, and I dont dog them when I say Tech will score 31. Tech throws the ball 95% of the game. They will score more than you think. You cant really base it on last years score because you and I both know, Tech was not that bad. Just fell apart.

But here is to a good old fashion Texas Shootout!

Tech has a juggernaut offense that Texas must stop....I think they will, but not without giving up, at least, 17 pts. The task is for Tech to stop Young and that dominant power "O"....I don't think they will!

Texas Tech 24
Texas 49

The game will be within 14, until the 4th qtr...Texas will score 14 more to close out the deal.

um.......................we are talking about this year and you conveniently forgot to mention Ohio State next year. I watched the Tech kstate game and you um were losing up until 3 minutes to go in the half. Let see if we can do a comparison here.
Texas stomps ou + ou stomps Kstate along as does tech = k state sOUx.
Divide by one nebraska lineman holding onto a fumble and you would have one loss already and we would have nothing to talk about.

Texas 55

Ok.... So

Baylor beats SMU, SMU beats TCU, TCU beats OU, so does that mean Baylor will beat OU?..... I hope your players think like your fans.

Yes, you will play Ohio St. again, congrats. Now go beat up on your DII schools. (Sorry had to say it cause tech got it so much this year, lol)

Divide by one reciever dropping the ball in the end zone against OSU, and um we would have nothing to talk about. Yes tech did struggle at NU. Simular environment to OSU, esp. with it being their homecoming.

Its called a game for a reason. You play it. And if I am correct, I did watch the Mizzou vs Texas game and Texas was sucking it up in the first half as well. Both Tech and Texas came back to win by large margins, so who cares.


WRECK EM TECH!!!! BBQ BEVO!

Yep, it's crazy to think Tech can't score on UT. The fact they have a better defense than before means there's a good chance they'll have the ball more this year. UT also has a good offense to counterbalance Tech's defense.

The reason that they scheduled Sam Houston is that the NCAA just approved a 12th regular season game for next year. The Texas AD scrambled to get a game and nobody wanted to play them at home during the proposed week. The only team that they could get was Sam Houston. You will not see many more D2 teams on the schedule in the future. It was a one time deal

You're crazy if you think UT beats Tech like that. OU beat K State 43-21 and Tech beat them 59-20. Any way you look at it, Tech will play UT closer than OU, Colorado, and Missouri.

I guess you have not read my posts.... I know Tech is going to make it a good game, and this is the game Ive been nervous about all year long... UT should win this game, but its not going to be a blowout like other Texas fans are saying... its going to be like the 02' and 03' seasons where it came down to the last drives...

I would LOVE to see UT blow away Tech, but that wont happen IMO...

New Defensive Coordinator who has a great game plan for the spread. You are gonna see a bunch of rotations on the front line, we are gonna blitz a lot!

hahahaha...No. Nebraska is okay. I wouldn't even say good yet. The Longhorns have crapped on that field twice already. Ohio State, on the other hand, had played 6 night games TOTAL before our game. 100,000+ fans.

The two environments don't compare. Sorry.


Tech fans get pissed at us for talking about last year, but then have the nerve to bring up 2 and 3 years ago. Like those are anymore relevant than last year. Come on! I've said it 100 times and I'll say it again...Carl Reese was the DC in '02 and '03. He had no idea how to guard a good spread offense. He never made any adjustments either. Texas got a good DC in Robinson. He made adjustments and Texas stomped Tech. Now we have Chizik, who not only makes adjustments on the fly, but actually gameplans.

Could the game be close? Yes
Could Tech win? Yes
Is it likely? Hell No

Texas - 49
Tech - 21

Have you been to both stadiums? Well from someone who has, I will say the stadiums are compariable. Just because they sit more fans does not mean its louder. I went to the Tech vs NU game and the Tech vs OSU game in 2002, and both were intense. NU was crazy because not only are they trying to build a program... they have sold out over 200 games in a row, they wanted revenge from their worst loss in school history from the year before, and it was their homecoming. Yes they are compariable. I have been to both, and was there when tech played OSU when OSU won it all.... they are very simular. I think Nebraska take football just as serious as OSU.

I hope tech proves alot of people wrong.....

They cant make the BIG 12 play any better. They have outright ran away with every game except Ohio State.

Where was their good opponent? TCU played OU and beat them when they were ranked #7..should that count as much as Texas beating Ohio st when they were ranked high? You are right....it might not be Texas' fault, but then it shouldn't be their credit that they be ranked so high above programs who are playing the contenders. It'll come out in the end...I only hope they don't make it there because they will be taking the place of a team who better deserves it and they'll get rolled and embarrass the state again.

VaTech plays BC and Miami, 2 teams pretty much guaranteed to finish Top 25. Their other two games against tough competition are Virginia and Georgia Tech. Tech isn't even in the Top 25 anymore and Virginia likely won't stay there.

Texas will have played Ohio State and Texas Tech. Both will finish in the Top 25. Texas has also beaten Colorado, who has a chance to finish in the Top 25 if they win out. If they don't, then Texas will have a win over a Top 25 (at least) Nebraska team who could be 10-1.

Back to the game tonight. VaTech held them out of the endzone? Since when? I thought you said you watched the game. Now that is hilarious.

Virginia Tech looked horrid. No matter how you slice it, 7-3 at halftime is damn close. 14-3 through 3 is close. Those miscues by Vick were because of bonehead plays. He wasn't very good tonight. I was starting to wonder if he knew his players were wearing white tonight. They pull that against Texas, they'll be drilled.

Cry about the schedule all you want. They're comparable. If Texas takes care of business, they're going to the Rose Bowl. Know why? Because know one wants to see VaTech vs USC. They want to see history. They want to see Texas vs USC.

Ok moron...I'll try this one more time...at the end of the day who will Texas have played? An over rated ohio state team and ??? A Texas Tech team who has played no ranked opponent.

at the end of the day ALL the top 5 teams will have played MORE and higher ranked teams than Texas..........

at the end of the day the team Va Tech would have played 4 ranked teams a 5th of which was 15th when they played them (if you must keep spouting the ohio state game) Ga Tech, that you are knocking (who plays 6 high ranked opponents).

So on all accounts Va Teh should currently be ranked ahead of Texas....They aren't . Nouf said.....


BUT as I said earlier this isn't about Va.

Let me ask you this...."who has Va Tech played ???" An overrated West Virginia team (Big East joke conference). Ga Tech who has losses now ? Va Tech hasnt played jack for top notch national teams. If you're going to argue that Ga Tech and WV are really top notch competition excuse me while I cough....

Ohio St is a HELL of alot better then WV and Ga Tech... 100% period !! Especially at the Horseshoe on a loud Saturday night.

Dont tell me that the ACC is heads and toes above the Big-12 either. The head to head competition doesnt show that at all.

Nebraska "KILLED" Wake Forest 33-3
Clemson beat Tx A&M on a last play FG - 25-24.
Miami beat Colorado - 23-3. (did you see what Texas did to Colorado ???)

The largest butt kicking of the year for Wake Forest wasnt (Florida St or Boston College).. it was Nebraska !!!

Boston College and Florida St are both "WAYYYYY" overrated this season so far and both will take a couple of more losses before the regular season is out. Miami will most likely get tagged twice more also.

At the end of the regular season both the ACC and Big-12 will have about 3 teams each in the top #25 and the (SOS) for Texas will probably be slightly ahead of Va Tech.

The BCS "experts" have already looked at (SOS) senerios and if all 3 teams go undefeated its going to be USC vs Texas in the Rose. :D

PS. But, dont be surprised to see Texas vs Va Tech in the Rose because honestly I think USC gets tagged by either UCLA or CAL before the seasons over.

I don't know about Earl making Ricky look like a rookie. I saw and remember Earl's entire NFL career...he was awesome...but Ricky ain't bad either.

And yes as a matter of fact Vince is coming back next year to earn his degree...and win his 2nd national title.

And why all the down playing of Ohio St. The Buckeyes are a good team. Their linebacker corps gave Vince fits a couple of different times during that game.
They would totally destroy Baby Vick...I promise you.

No kidding !!!! After watching a weak Maryland team give Va Tech everything they wanted for 3 quarters. I watched that game and knew right there that Texas would beat Va Tech like a drum. Honestly I dont even think that game would be close.

I'm not hating on Ohio wide, they are a good team....top 10? I don't think so. They are the best team Texas has played, and that's what I am trying to tell you....that's ALL that Texas has to hang their hat on. Even you have to admit...TT is not something for Texas to hang their hat on as competition if/when they beat them. So who does Texas have that they can say we belong here because we beat......???? Who wide?

USC already has the Notre Dame game.....that was a heck of a game.... Va Tech if they are there, in the end will certainly have the credentials.... USC still has UCLA .......who will Texas have?

Let me ask you this...."who has Va Tech played ???" An overrated West Virginia team (Big East joke conference). Ga Tech who has losses now ? Va Tech hasnt played jack for top notch national teams. If you're going to argue that Ga Tech and WV are really top notch competition excuse me while I cough....

Ohio St is a HELL of alot better then WV and Ga Tech... 100% period !! Especially at the Horseshoe on a loud Saturday night.

Dont tell me that the ACC is heads and toes above the Big-12 either. The head to head competition doesnt show that at all.

Nebraska "KILLED" Wake Forest 33-3
Clemson beat Tx A&M on a last play FG - 25-24.
Miami beat Colorado - 23-3. (did you see what Texas did to Colorado ???)

The largest butt kicking of the year for Wake Forest wasnt (Florida St or Boston College).. it was Nebraska !!!

Boston College and Florida St are both "WAYYYYY" overrated this season so far and both will take a couple of more losses before the regular season is out. Miami will most likely get tagged twice more also.

Rather than me repeat myself...read the back threads....I've showed several times almost everyone in the top 5 have harder schedules than Texas.... and no......if the 3 teams go undefeated, (and I seriously doubt mack can keep from screwing up...but maybe with this schedule he can) Texas will be the dream team...dreaming they were in it......

We'll see..but the the BCS gurus say your wrong.

Just keep praying that Fla St, BC and Miami run the rest of the table keep hanging in the top #20 (which sorry amigo...aint going to happen).

Like I said.. come Dec.1 the Texas (SOS) will be stronger. But, you allowed to keep dreaming.

ACC is overrated and the truth is coming out more and more each week. The voters saw that last week (especially with Fla St getting beat by a weak Va) team. Shoot.. Texas gained a 1st place vote last week and gained a bigger lead over Va Tech which many thought when the BCS poll came out Va Tech would be ahead of Texas... "OOPPPS".

Sorry the poll aint going to change much. The computer doesnt change much. But, when Florida St , Miami and BC get beat again "Its way over."

Yes, you will play Ohio St. again, congrats. Now go beat up on your DII schools. (Sorry had to say it cause tech got it so much this year, lol)

Divide by one reciever dropping the ball in the end zone against OSU, and um we would have nothing to talk about. Yes tech did struggle at NU. Simular environment to OSU, esp. with it being their homecoming.

Its called a game for a reason. You play it. And if I am correct, I did watch the Mizzou vs Texas game and Texas was sucking it up in the first half as well. Both Tech and Texas came back to win by large margins, so who cares.

Who exactly is the moron? Your synapses don't seem to be firing correctly. Let me try this again. I'll type slower so you can understand it.

You keep saying the top 5 teams will have tougher schedules than Texas at the end of the year. What will Texas have over those teams at the end of the year? Uhhhh...an undefeated season? If Texas wins this weekend, they have the clearest shot of everyone left at an undefeated season. These other teams may have a slightly tougher schedule at the end of the year, but if they have a loss, they can shut up.

You constantly say VaTech WILL have a tougher schedule by year's end. Instead, why don't you rank them based on what has ALREADY happened so far? VaTech will lose a game this season, and then they can choke on their "tough schedule".

I've already gone over each team's wins. Not only are they comparable, Texas has the advantage, as they have defeated 2 (soon to be 3 hopefully) Top 25 teams to VaTech's 1.

You are such a freaking hypocrit. You accuse me of assuming VaTech loses, but then assume the rest of the Top5 will go undefeated. You don't come out and say that, but that is the only way their schedule will have anything to do with who is in the Rose Bowl. If they lose, their tough schedule doesn't mean ****. And if that wasn't your point, shut up. Your point was ******** and didn't make sense.

Some of the worst teams in the nation have the toughest schedules. Do you give them props? No. Why? Because they lose. If these Top5 teams with such tough schedules don't go undefeated, they can suck it.

And stats against lay down teams? Again, can you even read your native language in type? I compared the two teams' opponents. VaTech's opponents are just as much, if not more, lay downs as Texas'. Please prove me otherwise. And try doing so without conjecture. I provide actual facts, and you provide BS spewing forth from your mouth.
