Four years in a row and this one was big. This keeps the Longhorn’s in the run for a good bowl game. It is hard to win in Lubbock. Tech’s lost may contribute to the firing of Tubberville at the end of the season. His playing calling and clock management in this game was questionable at times. But, this lose can’t totally be blamed on the coach. Tech left a few points on the score board due to poor executions,penalties and dropped passes. I must give it to the Longhorn’s defense they played well in the red-zone and on third down.
One of the best games, the defense has played of late. Held Tech to less than 25 points. They played better assignment football which maybe due to the defense schemes being simiplified. They cut down on big plays for long gains. And they tackled better and showed more aggression. Ever since the second half of the KU game this defense has played better. Some believe Mack took over the defenses responsibility. I doubt that but he has more input. Texas did a good job against Tech’s running game. Defensive line in the middle did play well in the trenches. Tech ‘s one big play due to a mistake by the linebackers but overall played better. Secondary’s job was made easy due to less pass attempts by Tech which I thought was strange. Secondary did a good job staying in front of Tech’s talented receivers all day. The Longhorn’s defense won this game.
Playing calling by Brian H. was good. He keep the Tech defense guessing. He would set up in pass formation and run the ball or show run and pass. They did a great job running the ball outside with Gray. The offensive line gave Ash time to complete passes down-field. Ash played a good game with all the pressure surrounding last weeks game. He can really keep his composure. He passed the ball well to Magic Davis, which had over 100 yards and two touch downs. The tight-ends did a good job blocking on the corners to open the outside running game.
Overall, a good win. Mack pushed the right buttons this week to get the team prepared for Tech in Lubbock.
