#HookEm: Defense Gets It Done

"To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily."
Colossians 1:29

ON a day when the Blue politics team seemed to secure a victory over the Red politics team, the Burnt Orange football team did what they needed to do.

The Longhorn defense only gave up one touchdown, while holding West Virgina to 43 yards rushing. T'Vondre Sweat and D'Marion Overshown are studs. Also, the defense came up with two stops on fourth down deep in their own territory during the fourth quarter.

For the record, had West Virgina kicked both of those times, they would have had 19 points.

Which could have been problematic, considering that Texas only scored 17 points themselves.

Offense is a mess. Ehligher's hurt. Playcalling is inexplicable. Likewise personnel rotation.

To which we will add: We were sitting in the upper deck during the first half. We didn't notice and start paying attention until the second quarter, but Jake Smith was wide open every single play. Not coincidentally, Smith caught the only touchdown of the second half.

Might want to do that more, Mensa boy.  Rather than keep him on the sideline.  From the fourth quarter, with Texas on offense, with about five minutes remaining:

Bottom Line: Every win makes $19 million in buyouts to hire Aaron Hernandez's enabler less likely.
