The game was going great for the Terps until they got stupid-arrogant midway through the 2nd and tried for two when they were ahead 27-7. You kicked the karma god in the nads, and he kicked back. They squeaked by, for their first win against a ranked team in seven years.

Still, I'm not going to get too excited. Maryland has run the past couple of seasons this way - a strong start in the pre-conference games, and then they barely make a 6-6 season for a low-end bowl game.

Yeah, that annoyed the hell out of me. Just take the extra point.  But I never expected the Terps to go in there in win.

Well done Terps.
Sheesh, the complaints about going for two...

Good game Maryland. They came out & kicked our butts.

That said, Texas will never return to prominence until they cut ties with the Longhorn Network. It came out in 2010 & it's been downhill ever since. Not just in football, but in basketball & baseball too. Simply put, it's too much to ask the head coach to coach, recruit & be the face of a tv network. It's an impossible task, and that's why for the last  seven years, it's like you see the same mistakes. Terrible defense, lack of execution on special teams, dumb penalties. Texas asked Mack Brown to do the impossible. They asked Charlie Strong to do the impossible. And they're asking Tom Herman to do it too.

My alma mater has to start asking some difficult questions. Right now, they aren't in the athletics business. They're in the entertainment business. They need to decide what they really want to be because right now they suck at both.

As a fellow UT grad who watched Ricky pothead Williams get an easy 2k season the problem is we need to play fundamentals first

Learn to tackle and run the damn ball

Until we do those two things it's like we are trying to be a WAC team

Note to Tom Herman: In between lessons on water bottles and attitude, you might want to teach your players about blocking and tackling.

Stop blaming some stupid network. The network is outgrowth of the outsize, overweening sense of importance that the whole stupid school has. When UT finally gets over itself, period, is when it might finally be a good sports school, because then it might actually do the hard work of fundamentals and working hard. Instead it's pompous and lazy. It's a second rate athletics destination and has been for most of its existence. The network is just another way of constantly patting itself on the back while the rest of the country ignores them.

I respectfully disagree. Take a look at when the network debuted. Then look at the trajectory of the football, basketball & baseball teams.

I know, I know, correlation does not equal causation, but all three went into the tank at the exact same time, and it happened the moment the TLN debuted. My theory is that it's simply too difficult to manage coaching, recruiting & being the face of a tv network. Too much is asked of the coaches, and frankly, it shows.
