    Our chances would go up to an even 10%. Still gotta be able to move the ball even if there's no defense on the field or in the stadium or in the city.

    Maryland beat them on the opening game the last 2 years. They didn't make a bowl game either year, and last year, they weren't a good team. Yes, they play in a better conference, but they have not won 5 consecutive bowl games or even made bowl games like we have. I don't say we have no chance. They will certainly overlook us. No one gave Maryland a shot either year. I have already had to start hearing the trash talking from my boss about how badly they will kill us- very few things would make me as happy as winning this game. No, I am not seriously thinking we will win, but people win the lottery all the time that don't expect to- it could happen.

    So we have about the same chance as someone does when they buy a Powerball ticket? 😀

    I'm fairly certain Holtz is not planning the simplest first thing to actually go out and attempt to win this game. The objective is to play it safe, not make too many colossal mistakes and hope by some miracle of the football good fortune that we have a last second chance to get a win.

    Failure to plan is planning to fail.

    Opportunity for Holtz to change his legacy at La Tech. To date he annually produces a competitive team that qualifies for a bowl game and wins but has never won CUSA nor has he had a marquee win against a P5. This is a winnable game and I might be tempted to take the dawgs to cover the 20.5 spread but barely. Texas 31 Dawgs 14

    Texas preseason top 10. Winnable? Not even close. I may watch the first half LHN.

    Texas won’t over look us. Getting bit in the ass by Maryland twice is bad enough, but to lose to us would do serious damage. They are back in the thick of things to start a season for the first serious time in a few years. They are going to come out hot.

    According to Holtz, really all that matters is that we compete and these guys become great men later in life.

    Our attendance over the past 5 years agrees with him.

    Re: So You're Saying...

    Since Vince Young and that Colt guy, UT has sucked at football (for about 10+ years!). It might just be me but why does it seem we only play these big schools when they are good??? the only team we can beat when they are good is Alabama. Why don't we play them more? I hope we go to San Fran east and kick the crap out of the cows but it probably won't happen. Oh well. only 3 more weeks!!!!
