By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 4:03 pm

USC regained the #1 slot in the BCS, as was pretty much expected. They lead Texas by 0.0038.

Vince for Heisman
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:58 am

More on the Texas/Oklahoma State game: from the AP:

Young rushed for a career-high 267 yards and passed for 239 yards, setting a school record for total offense in a game, as No. 2 Texas scorched Oklahoma State in the second half for a third straight season in a 47-28 win Saturday night.


Only a week after Missouri’s Brad Smith became the first player in Division I-A history to have at least 230 yards rushing and passing in one game, Young matched the feat and became the seventh player in NCAA history to throw and run for at least 200 yards in a game.

He also accounted for four touchdowns, two on the ground and two through the air.

One would think that this performance would have to have Young firmly in the race for the Heisman.

And, amazing (and what’s up with the first halves of these games?):

In the past three meetings with Oklahoma State, the Longhorns have outscored the Cowboys 118-0 in the second half and trailed at halftime in each game.

Texas came back from a 35-7 deficit last season, scoring 42 unanswered points in the second half of a 56-35 win in Austin. A year earlier, the Cowboys led 16-14 in Stillwater before the Longhorns reeled off 41 consecutive points.

That’s More Like it
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 10:02 pm

That was one lousy first half, but a far better second half (assuming, of course, one isn’t an OSU fan…).

If anything, OSU has been a major pain two years in a row.

Vince Young has a great game, ultimately, running and passing for over 200 yards-as well as passing for 2 TDs and rushing for 2 others.

BlogPoll Week 9
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 10:49 am

The mgoblog: BlogPoll Week 9 is now available.

Two quick College football notes:

1) In terms of the BCS: is there really any substantive difference between being #1 or #2 in the BCS? The only issue over the course of the season is that #2 is at a higher risk of getting jumped by a lower ranked team. However, at the end of the process, 1 and 2 are identical in terms of reward.

So, while it is cool for Texas to be #1 this week, it doesn’t mean all that much. Further, barring a loss, I expect that USC will regain the #1 spot given their remaining schedule v. Texas’.

2) For what it is worth, I voted #1 USC, #2 Texas in my blogpoll ballot.

Horns Smack Tech
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 7:03 pm

(2) Texas 52, (10) Texas Tech 17.

Pretty impressive, given that Tech was #7 in the BCS going into today.

This is clearly the best Texas team that Mack Brown has had.

Also: last year I was not sure that Vince Young was going to be an NFL QB, but this season he has thrown some impressive passes to become a true double-threat and I now do think he will find himself playing on Sundays.


Meanwhile, in the SEC, Bama beats the Vols 6-3-defensive struggle or offensive ineptness (or some of both)? Also, Georgia escapes from Arkansas.

College Football Corner
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 1:37 pm

A few observations about yesterday’s games.

  • USC@ND: Wow. The Irish had them dead to rights at 4th and 9 deep in SC territory and allowed that huge pass play, and Leinart’s fumble with 7 seconds left was the luckiest fumble in the history of college football. Again, I say: wow. And how crushing did it have to be for Irish fans, given that it appeared that they had won?

    Side note on Leinart (who clearly will be playing on Sundays for years to come): is it really legitimate to call a guy taking one class (and that being ballroom dancing) a college quarterback? Seems to me he is semi-pro (I mean really: what else is he doing of substance aside from football?).

  • Penn State@Michigan. While I am pleased that Joe Pa has been having a good season (as it would have been sad from his career to have ended as it seemed was going to be the case), as a Texas fan, I am pleased to see the ranks of the undefeated diminished by one.
  • Alabama@Ole Miss. I think that Bama nation can scale back the national championship hopes, and SI can back off the idea that the Tide is one of the teams that might could beat SC. If you need a last minute FG to beat Ole Miss, you aren’t quite ready to take on the Trojans. Tennessee next week will be an illuminating game, one way or another.
  • Colorado @ Texas. I didn’t get to see the game, but Vince Young had a great day: passed for over 300 yards, threw two TDs and rushed for three more in the process of Texas destroying a ranked team (although granted, not ranked all that highly).
  • UCLA@Washington. Wow. For a while there it looked like the Bruins were going down. No doubt my sister was sweatin’ it.
  • FSU@VA. Wowie. The Noles fall to an unranked opponent (as did Cal).

More Texas-OU
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 4:13 pm

Nifty: (via the Statesman:

The 33-point victory margin matched the largest ever by Texas over Oklahoma, as the Longhorns extended their lead in the series to 56-39-5.

And, nice stats:

The Longhorn defense limited Oklahoma to just 171 total yards — 77 rushing and 94 passing. Texas racked up 444 yards.

And sure, the Michigan-Minnesota game was close and all that, but curses on ABC nonetheless.

Hang on One Darn Minute!!
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 2:57 pm

I have waited FIVE FREAKIN’ YEARS to see Texas hand it to OU and ABC is not going to let me watch the whole thing?

Fumble Fingers
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:16 pm

If Troy actually had the ability to hold onto the ball, they might could’ve beaten South Carolina. As the third quarter, the Gamecocks had 28 of their 32 points via Troy turnovers.
