Texas lost another game same old line could not stop the opposing teams rushing attack. It is kinda of sad when you see the QB run the same play over and over and can not be stopped. The littlest running back around rushed for over 1oo yards.
It will take the new defensive coordinator months to change this defense. Never have seen a team at this level with all of the talent in the world play so bad. Based on stats you would think this defense never ever played the game. I mean poor tackling form,allowing offensive lineman to blow the defensive line off the ball at the line of scrimmage. I label this no heart on this defensive unit. I don’t blame the coaches. I think they are well prepared at game time. They just don’t have that killer nature, need to recruit players like Ray Lewis or Mike Singletary. You would know when the guys show up to a game some leather will be popping. Mike was known to crack a few helmets in his college playing days.
Not gonna just blame it on the defense. I think the offense in the latter parts of the game are playing poorly. I still don’t think they know what they want to do at times. Really disappointed the running game is not as strong as I thought it should be.
So, Texas has decided to change the offense. Went to a hurry up package, the problem Texas is having is they haven’t really recruited for this new system. The players they have in place on offense are set up for a more of a running game. It is going to take at least two more years before they have the right personnel and I don’t think this coaching staff has the time.
Texas became set in their ways after winning National Championship. They fail to prepare for change. If you look at current offensive system they are more pass orientated ad less run game. Many teams have been changing to that system back years ago and know Texas wants to go that way. Again a little to late.
The Longhorns are going through changes and I don’t think the fans are going give them a break . They are already booing the coach. From what I hear players want to play for younger coaches.
This team is in big trouble and do not see it getting better any time soon. Mack’s record against top 25 teams in the past few years is poor. I do not wish firing on any head coach but Texas needs a change. I don’t think Mack can do it
