Here's a comparison of the two team's national rankings in four key categories:
Baylor - 5th
UT - 58th
Baylor - 26th
UT - 83rd
Baylor - 20th
UT - 80th
Baylor - 49th
UT - 33rd
Could the UT defense could show up like they did in Lincoln and stop RG3? Sure, but I doubt it. Have you watched that guy? Wow. Also, go back and look at the dropped passes in Lincoln; if a couple of those are catches - and the receivers were open - that game goes the other direction. Unlike Nebraska, Baylor will be playing loose. That's the fifth ranked passing offense in the country. FIFTH! They may be scoring at will in front of a depressed DKR fan base with a LOT of BU fans showing up for this one and cheering loudly.
Look, whatever happens Saturday, those numbers for UT are so pathetic that it staggers the imagination. Frighteningly bad. I'm hoping for a UT win, but all I really want at this point is for the players to show up and act like they care. Where's the fire? If its a lost season anyway, then give the ball to the players WHO CARE and tell the smug ring-wearing Juniors and Seniors to take a seat. Give some experience to the players of the future seasons who understand that this is TEXAS FOOTBALL we're talking about here, not the Upper Middle Appalachian School of Baton Twirling and Copper Mining.
Sorry, didn't mean to insult the football of the Baton Twirling guys.
