Longhorns DOMINATE UTEP!!!

"The horse is prepared for the day of battle,
But deliverance is of the Lord."
Proverbs 21:31

Great game; we don't have the energy for a full write up, but some thoughts:
  • The Longhorns did what they needed to do tonight.  After last week's upset over Notre Dame, they needed to run up the score against an unranked, non-conference, foe. They did it 41-7.
  • Still too many stupid penalties; could have scored 60 with fewer.
  •  It's insane how many options there are on offense; Warren, both Foreman twins, #21 running back, Burt, Heard, and it continues from there.
  •  Jerrod Heard in the open field is a sight to behold.
  •  Tyrone Swoopes is virtually unstoppable in short yardage; beyond that, what a class act for voluntarily accepting a niche position as a Senior.
  •  Three starters on offensive line were out tonight.  41 points behind a patchwork offensive line. Think about that.
  • That being said, three starters being out on o-line didn't phase Shane Buchele in the slightest. Best pocket presence we've seen since Colt McCoy.  He reminds us of Joe Montana.
  •  The defense gets better over the course of the game.
  • Speaking of defense, what superlatives don't apply to Malik Jefferson?!?  What a beast.  We don't know if television does it justice, but he's in the middle of every single play.
  •  Next week against Cal on the road will tell us a lot.

We didn't get good video tonight, but FWIW....
