Dear Texas, I Have Some Apologizing To Do

On September 1st, the Texas Longhorns were defeated by Maryland in a game I and so many others thought exposed Texas for once again being overrated. With wins against #22 USC, #17 TCU and now #7 Oklahoma, it’s safe to say I was terribly wrong.

Over the past few years, The Red River Rivalry has been decided by no more than a touchdown. Going into Saturday, I was expecting this to be another solid game between the two. Oklahoma-Texas is one of those games that seems to be close no matter how much better one of the teams may be compared to the other. This years game was everything a fan could’ve asked for in a Red River Showdown and more.

Touchdown after touchdown after touchdown. That’s basically how it was on Saturday between the Sooners and Horns. Both quarterbacks had impressive days. Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray went 19/26 for 304 passing yards with 4 TD’s and rushed 11 times for 92 yards and 1 touchdown. The Longhorns Sam Ehlinger went 24/35 for 314 passing yards with 2 TD’s and rushed 19 times for 72 yards and 3 touchdowns. Both QB’s had 5 total touchdowns but to me, Ehlinger had the better day.

Don’t get me wrong, Kyler Murray had a ridiculous day and brought his team back from being down 45-24. I’m not trying to take anything away from that. The fact of the matter is, Sam Ehlinger played a more complete and polished game. He stayed calm and kept his composure the entire game and I can’t remember him making a single mistake, to be honest. Murray coughed up a couple turnovers and I definitely saw more sloppiness than Ehlinger. The Texas quarterback has made a tremendous leap forward from where he was back in week one against Maryland. Actually, this entire team as a whole looks like a completely different team than they did against the Terrapins.

Overall, I was very wrong about this Longhorn squad. Texas, I’m sorry for having so little faith and so much certainty that you were going to be below average once again. I have to give major props for making improvements I thought we wouldn’t see any time soon let alone in just a couple of weeks. Texas is one of the most impressive teams in college football right now and after this win against Oklahoma, they have all the momentum in the world. Hook ’em Horns.

It’s Time To Start Taking The Colorado Buffaloes Seriously

When the season began, the favorites to win the Pac 12 were Washington, Stanford, USC, and a few others that might be able to sneak into contention. Nobody thought a team like Colorado would be among those listed above but here we are today as the Buffs sit at 4-0 and first place in the Pac 12 South.

Obviously, the season is still young but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be taking Colorado any less serious. CU has defeated every one of their opponents with ease except for their matchup in Nebraska who gave them a little bit more of a fight but CU’s deadly QB-WR with Steven Montez and Laviska Shenault Jr. duo still proved to be too much for the Huskers. Plain and simple, this team looks like it’s getting better by the week and last week’s dominant win over UCLA backs it up.

Quarterback Steven Montez has transformed into one of the most fundamentally sound and reliable QB’s I’ve seen in recent years. His ability to always find the open receiver is something that’s rare to find in a college quarterback. He has the numbers to back it up. Take a look for yourself.

Week 1 @ Colorado State – 22/25 – 338 Passing Yards – 88% Completion Percentage

Week 2 @ Nebraska – 33/50 – 351 Passing Yards – 66% Completion Percentage

Week 3 vs New Hampshire – 14/19 – 166 Passing Yards – 73.7% Completion Percentage

Week 4 vs UCLA – 22/26 – 237 Passing Yards – 84.6% Completion Percentage

As impressive as those numbers are, I do have to mention the fact he has one of the most underrated and overlooked wide receivers in the NCAA catching his passes with Laviska Shenault Jr.

If watching an NFL caliber receiver sounds like something you’d be interested in, I highly recommend turning on a Buffs game the next time you get the chance. Laviska Shenault Jr is a mismatch for nine out of ten corners. He’s tall, fast, agile, and has the hands of a seasoned NFL vet. In three out of the four games that he’s played in this year, Shenault’s had 120+ yard receiving yards. Heading into week 6, the Colorado WR already has 581 total receiving yards and has no sign of slowing down.

This Colorado team has one of the most dominant QB-WR duo’s in the country and it’s incredibly fun to watch. If these two continue to thrive, expect the team as a whole to as well.

Once again, I know it’s early but keep your eyes on that Colorado team down up in Boulder.
