Well, it is that time again. Football season is around the corner. UT kicks off in 31 days. They place Rice at Reliant Stadium at 2:30. I am so excited that we are this close. UT has lots of positive things on their side after losing to Bama in the BCS Championship game.
First great thing is that our new quarterback Garrett Gilbert looked pretty good for freshman in the Bama game. He gained unbelievable experience playing on that stage. That stage will make the OU game seem trivial. Now I am not saying he should not get excited about the OU game but he played on the biggest stage of all and did not have a terrible experience. He almost won!
Another positive thing for this season is that UT gets Tech out of the way in September. That will help the October schedule and they will get an early test. Usually they are never tested in September. They also get another September test with UCLA. I am not sure what UCLA has to offer this year but at least they have been powers before.
OU is in early October and it is followed up by Nebraska. That should be a tough couple of weeks. UT has to play Nebraska in Nebraska. I am sure there will be a lot of scores to settle with the departure of Nebraska from the Big 12. As usual they end the season with A&M in Austin on Thanksgiving Day.
Can not wait for September 4th to get here. Check back for regular updates.
