Baylor Bears vs. Texas Longhorns 2020

Baylor Bears vs. Texas Longhorns

 The Horns and Bears square off Saturday afternoon in Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium.  Kick-off is set for 2:30 p.m., and the game will be broadcast around the world by the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network.  Mark Jones, Dusty Dvoracek, and Allyson Williams will be in town for the call.  Dusty sound familiar?  He should.  A top recruit out of Lake Dallas High School, Dusty chose to go north of the Red River and seek an education in Norman, Oklahoma.  He played nose tackle and started 28 games (2001-2005).  Craig Way, Roger Wallace, and Quan Cosby will have the call in the IMG Longhorn Radio Network.

The line is Texas by 8.5, and the over/under is 61.

The Horns will be wearing white throwback uniforms to honor the 1970 national championship team.  First time for the Longhorns to wear white uniforms at home since September 30, 1950 (34-26 over Purdue).

Texas leads the all-time series with Baylor 78-27-4, which began in 1901 with a 23-0 win in Waco.  Which means that unless I live to be 112 and Baylor wins 52 straight games, Texas will always have a winning record against Baylor as long as I live.  (The odds of either of those things happening are infinitesimally small, although the odds of me living to 112 are logarithmically greater than Baylor winning 52 straight.)  The only 2 teams we have played more often are Texas Agricultural & Mechanical and the Land Thieves.  Texas is 47-10-2 in Austin, but like many of our long-time opponents, many of their wins have come in recent history.  12 of the 27 wins have come since 1984, and 5 since 2010.  Talk about a dismal decade.  Although I should note that before last year’s loss in the Toilet Seat by the Brazos, Texas had won 4 in a row.

Texas Depth Chart

Baylor

The Bears have only played 2 games, with games against Louisiana Tech, Houston, and Oklahoma State being cancelled or postponed (the Okie State game has been re-scheduled for December 12).  Baylor beat Kansas 47-14 in Waco, then lost at West Virginia 21-27 in double overtime.  14 of their points against the Jayhawks were on special teams (kick returns – take note).  In Morgantown, the Bears managed 27 yards rushing on 33 attempts.  Bear that in mind as you read below.

Baylor’s new head coach is Dave Aranda, who graduated from Cal Lutheran in 1999, two years after Tom Herman.  They were roommates, believe it or not.  This is his first head coaching job.  But he brought a national championship ring with him to Waco, having been defensive coordinator for Louisiana State 2016-2019 (and assistant head coach for that NC team).  His offensive coordinator in Waco is Larry Fedora, who knows a little about the Longhorns.  Joe Wickline is the offensive line coach.

The Baylor offense is led by senior Quarterback Charlie Brewer (#5, 6-1, 210, Lake Travis HS).  Charlie has had a great career in Waco.  With the 371 passing yards so far this season, he has over 8,000 career yards.  Assuming he stays healthy (like Sam, he tends to be an aggressive leader on the field and takes a lot of hits), he will help the Bears win some football games this season.  Let’s just hope that Saturday isn’t one of them (that he wins; not wishing for him to be injured).  In 2020, he’s 38/61, 4 TD’s, 2 picks, and he’s been sacked 7 times.  With the sacks, he’s only netted 15 yards on the ground in his 2 games, and scores.  Last year, he ran for 11 touchdowns.  And he ran a lot on Texas in that 2019 win.

Leading the rushing attack for Baylor is John Lovett (#7, senior, 6-0, 212).  He had 17 carries for 78 yards and a score against Kansas, but only picked up 23 in 14 attempts in the West Virginia loss (no score).  Craig Williams (#20, RS-F, 5-8, 173) has 61 yards on 5 carries and 1 TD.  The depth chart I was able to fine had Trestan Ebner (#1, senior, 5-11, 208 from Henderson) behind Lovett.  Ebner has 15 carries for 25 yards and a score.  He’s also a good receiver, with 5 catches for 70 yards.  A very capable backfield.

Lots of targets for Brewer.  R.J. Sneed (#0, junior, 6-1, 200) has 11 catches, 99 yards, and a score.  Josh Fleeks (#21, WR, 5-11, 192) has 7 catches for 63 yards and a score.  Gavin Holmes (#6, WR, 5-11, 201) has 6 for 44 (21 of the 44 was on one catch).

Leading tackler for the Bears is pre-season All-American Terrel Bernard (#2, linebacker, junior, 6-1, 222), with 21 tackles (16 solo), 3.5 TFL for 12 yards, 2.5 sacks for 11 yards, and an interception.  Jalen Pitre (#8, junior, 6-0, 200, position listing on the depth chart is “STAR”, listed as safety/linebacker on the roster), has 18 tackles (15 solo), with 4 TFL for 11 yards.  Dillon Doyle (#44, sophomore linebacker, 6-3, 235), has 11 tackles (7 solo), and three players have 10 tackles each:  William Bradley-King (#99, senior, 6-4, 248, jack LB), J.T. Woods (#22, junior, safety, 6-2, 190), and Jairon McVea (#42, senior, safety, 5-9, 185).

It appears field goal kicking may be inconsistent.  John Mayers is 1 for 3 (all 3 attempts over 40 yards), and Noah Rauschenberg missed one from over 50.

Given Baylor has only played twice the stats are probably not as informative as they could be.  But we have them anyway.

 If this Texas team can put the distractions and noise behind them for a few hours Saturday afternoon, then I think they can win the game. We are going to need to clean-up the miscues and most especially the penalties that were so costly in Dallas.

While this may be Aranda’s first head coaching job, this is a deep and experienced team that finished the 2019 regular season tied for first in the Big 12 (8-1) and ranked 8 in the AP & 7 in the CFP rankings and lost in overtime to Oklahoma (23-30) in the Big 12 Championship Game.  They played No. 5 Georgia in the Sugar Bowl, falling 14-26.  An 11-3 season, and the 3 losses were to the Land Thieves twice and a good Georgia team.

Keys for Texas, in addition to cleaning up the penalties.  Protect Sam, of course.  Aranda will have a good scheme to go after him, and Herman and Yurcich better be ready with a plan.  Better tackling (I am tired of that being an issue).  Solid special teams play, especially on punts.  It is inexcusable, in my opinion, for that to be a problem area at The University of Texas.

This should be a 2-3 score margin in a Texas win, but I think the 8.5 point line is about right.  I think it will be a one score game, and Texas better be ready.

Eyes of Texas

The controversy continues, but Chairman Eltife’s statement is clear.

Polls Week 8

AP Top 25:  Clemson, Alabama, Notre Dame, Georgia, The Ohio State University™, Oklahoma State, Texas Agricultural & Mechanical, PSU, Cincinnati, and Florida.  North Carolina tied with Wisconsin at No. 14.  Southern Methodists at 16.  Iowa State at No. 17, and K State enters the AP at No. 20.  Coastal Carolina is No. 25.  Texas at the bottom of “others receiving votes”; or in our case “other receiving a vote”.

Coaches Poll:  Clemson, Roll Tide, L’Université de Notre Dame du Lac, Georgia, The Ohio State University™, Okie A&M, PSU, Florida, Texas Agricultural & Mechanical, and Cincinnati.  UNC at 13, Southern Methodist at 16.  Iowa State No. 18 and K State enters the Coaches Poll at No. 19.  Coastal Carolina a No. 24.  Same with this poll for the Horns – near the bottom of “others receiving votes”.

This Week in the Big 12

 A full slate of games this week, all still on as of the wee hours of Friday morning.

Kansas (winless) at No. 20 Kansas State (3-1).  The Sunflower Showdown playing for the Governor’s Cup.  First played in 1902, Kansas leads the series 56-25-2, but the Wildcats are 23-8 in the last 31 games.  11:00 a.m. on FOX Sports 1.  K State favored by 19.5, and the over/under is 48.5.  Might this be the upset that Les Miles is looking for?  Probably not.

Oklahoma at Texas Christian, 11:00 a.m. on ABC.  Sooners favored by 6.5, and the over/under is 60.  Land Thieves to win and cover.

No. 17 Iowa State at No. 6 Oklahoma State.  The two best teams in the Big 12 square off in Stillwater at 2:30 p.m. on FOX.  Okie A&M leads the series 32-19-3.  Cowboys are favored by 3.5, over/under is 52.

West Virginia in Lubbock to play the Red Raiders.  4:30 p.m. on ESPN2.  Mountaineers favored by 3, and the over/under is 54.  Tech looking for their first conference win.  This may be it.

This Week in the Top 25

The Big 10 finally starts playing this week.

Friday night

No. 14 Wisconsin hosts Illinois at Camp Randall Stadium.  7:00 p.m. on the Big 10 Network.  Badgers favored by 19.5, over/under is 51.5.

Saturday

Saturday morning starts with No. 1 Clemson at home against a fairly dreadful Syracuse team.  After hanging 73 on Georgia Tech last week, I am stunned the over/under is 61.5.  11:00 a.m. on ACC Network.  Clemson favored by 46.

No. 5 Ohio State opens at home with Nebraska.  11:00 a.m. on FOX.  Buckeyes favored by 26, over/under is 68.  While I am sure tOSU is just as good as everyone thinks they are, nothing would make me chuckle more than Nebraska rolling into Columbus and pulling the upset.  That would be so fine.  GBR.

No. 14 North Carolina (3-1) looks to rebound at home against No. 23 NC State (4-1).  11:00 a.m. on ESPN.  Tarheels favored by 15.5 (dropped from 17), and the over/under is 60.  Expect Mack to have this team ready to win, but Wolfpack to cover.

No. 25 Coastal Carolina.  Never thought I would write that.  Undefeated Chanticleers host 3-1 Georgia Southern in Conway.  CCU favored by 5.5, over/under is 51.5.  11:00 a.m. on ESPNU.  Bet that’s a big draw.

Florida Atlantic at No. 22 Marshall.  1:30 p.m. on Stadium.  Thundering Herd favored by 16.5, over/under is 51.5.  Marshall to win and cover.

The $EC Game of the Week on the Columbia Broadcasting System features No. 1 Alabama at Tennessee.  The Volunteers’ early success has evaporated after the beating from Georgia (not a surprise) and the thrashing by Kentucky (a surprise to me, anyway).  Alabama favored by 21.5, over/under is 65.  Alabama should take care of business, win and cover.

No. 3 Notre Dame at Pittsburgh (3-3).  2:30 p.m. on ABC.  The Panthers have played as many or more games than anyone else, best I can tell. Unfortunately they will likely drop below .500 after the Irish take care of business on Heinz Field.  Notre Dame favored by 10, over/under is 42.5.

No. 8 Penn State at Indiana.  2:30 p.m. on FS1.  PSU favored by 6.  Go Hoosiers!

No. 19 Virginia Tech at Wake Forest.  2:30 pm on ESPN3.  Hokies favored by 9.5, over/under is 68.5.  VPI to win.  Not sure about the line.

No. 18 Michigan at No. 21 Minnesota.  6:30 p.m. on ABC.  Wolverines favored by a thin 3 points.  Over/under is 54.  Should be a watchable game.

Virginia at No. 11 Miami (Florida).  Tough year for the Hoos, but hoping they can pull the upset in South Florida.  7:00 p.m. on ACC Network.  Canes favored by 12.5, over/under is 58.

Battle of undefeated teams in the American, with No. 9 Cincinnati at No. 16 Southern Methodist.  Both teams undefeated.  8:00 p.m. on ESPN2.  Mustangs are favored by 2.5, over/under is 55.5.  Good luck Ponies.  I think they win and cover.  Big night for Buechele.

Texas State (1-5) at No. 12 Brigham Young (5-0).  9:15 pm on ESPN.  This could get ugly for the Bobcats.  Sorry Trey.  Cougars favored by 28.5, over/under is 59.5.  Brigham Young to win, cover, and hit the over.

Other Games of Interest

Several other games Friday night, including Tulsa at South Florida (6:30 on ESPN, Tulsa favored by 10.5), and Louisiana at UAB (7:00 on CBSSN, Ragin’ Cajuns favored by 3).

Auburn (2-2) at Ole Miss (1-3), 11:00 a.m. on $EC Network.  11:00 a.m. games in Oxford should be banned.  Auburn favored by 3.5, over/under is 70.5.  Hotty Toddy!

UTEP at Charlotte (that would be University of North Carolina at Charlotte, not, as the name might suggest, the University of Charlotte).  11:00 a.m. on ESPN+.  49ers favored by 14.5 over the Miners.

Rutgers at Michigan State, 11:00 a.m. on BTN.  Spartans 13.5 point favorites, over/under is 44.5.

Mercer at Army, 11:00 a.m. on CBSSN.  No line apparently,

Not that I really have an interest in Liberty University, but I am interested that they are 5-0.  Southern Miss in Lynchburg to play the Flames.  Man a Cheesy Western and a Bowl With from the Texas Inn sounds good right now.  Liberty favored by 13.

Houston (1-1) at Navy (3-2), 2:30 p.m. on CBSSN.  Cougars favored by 15.  Over/under is 55.  I guess Vegas believes Holgo is going to get it going.

South Carolina at Louisiana State, 6:00 p.m. on ESPN.  Tigers favored by 6.  Over/under is 55.5.  LSU to win.

La Tech at UTSA, 7:00 p.m. on ESPNU.  Bulldogs are 1.5 point favorites/

The Mountain West also begins play this week.  Some intriguing teams and usually some good late games.  New Mexico at Colorado State, 8:00 p.m. on FS2 is neither.  UNLV at San Diego State, 9:30 p.m. on CBSSN might fit the bill (Aztecs 15 point favorites).  Air Force at San Jose State, 9:30 p.m. on FS1, could be good too (The Academy favored by 7).

Texas Basketball

As of now, the Longhorns tip-off their season on November 25 with a home game against the UTRGV Vaqueros.  Texas is also playing in the Maui Invitational, which is always a treat for college teams and their families and fans.  Although this year, the Maui Invitational is in Asheville, North Carolina, which is a bit different than Maui, Hawaii.  We play Davidson at 11:00 a.m. on Monday November 30.  The only other game on the official schedule (after the Maui), is the just announced match with Kentucky in Lexington on January 30, part of the Big 12/$EC Challenge.  Will have more on the team as we get closer to the season, but I am hoping for a good season.

Last Week in the Big 12 – Week 7

 Kansas actually had the lead at West Virginia after the first quarter, 10-7.  Didn’t last.  38-17 Mountaineers for the 21 point win (line was WVU by 22.5).

Last Week in the Top 25 – Week 7

Southern Methodist went to New Orleans to play Tulane.  I thought the 6.5 point line was low.  I was wrong.  The Green Wave took the Ponies to overtime, but the Southern Methodists prevailed 37-34.  Buechele had another nice game – 23/37, 384 yards, 2 TDs

Brigham Young was a 5 point road favorite at Houston, and I thought Houston and Holgo might have a shot at the upset.  The H-Town Cougars hung with the Mormon Cougars for 3 quarters, entering the fourth with a 26-21 lead.  Brigham Young found divine inspiration (but no tablets) and scored 22 unanswered in the final frame for a 43-26 win. Zach Wilson, BYU QB, passed for 400 and 4 TDs and was leading rusher with 40 yards.  Kyle Porter led Houston with 94 rushing.

Oh Dabo.  Talking all that good ole boy BS about rivalries and how in over 100 years of Clemson-Georgia Tech rivalry, Clemson has never won 3 in a row in Atlanta.  Tigers 73, really Ramblin’ Wreck 7.  Clemson scored 35 in the second quarter.

The first half of the Georgia-Alabama game was competitive.  24-20 Georgia at the half.  However, Kirby and his team forgot to score in the second half and got whipped, 41-24.

Notre Dame 12-7 over Louisvile in a barn-burner.

Miami (Florida) 31, Pittsburgh 19.

North Carolina at Florida State, and I thought FSU would cover.  They did, and they beat the Heels 31-28.

Auburn at South Carolina.  “War Eagle a thin 3.5 point favorite.  Over/under is 51.5.  Muschamp really needs a win.  This will be a good football game.”  Gamecocks 30, Auburn 22.

The Whiskey War between Kentucky and Tennessee was a bit one-sided.  Wildcats all over the Vols and not just upsetting Tennessee, but blowing them out in Neyland Stadium, 34-7.

Texas Agricultural & Mechanical 28, Mississippi State 14.

Virginia Tech with the expected win over Boston College, 40-14

Other Games of Interest – Week 7

Navy with a 27-23 win over East Carolina, covering.

Texas State 20, South Alabama 30.  Another long year for the Bobcats despite the shorter season.

Army 28-16 over UTSA.  First hand report from a highly placed source that it was very poorly attended, which even with the virus surprised me.  Official attendance was 7,887.

Ole Miss fell behind early at Arkansas, trailing 20-0 at half.  Kiffin and his Rebs couldn’t rally, falling 21-33.

Really tough season for Virginia.  Hoos lose 23-40 at Wake Forest, after going in as 2.5 point favorites.

TSLN and Jim Bayless

Billy Dale recently had a nice piece on my friend Jim Bayless.  He’s the one on the far right.

How many of y’all had those Wilson racquets and remember spinning them and calling M or W for first serve?  Dan Nelson, to the left of Jim in the photo, is another good guy.

Jim is a good man and truly a great Longhorn.  Enjoy the story.

Music

The rest of W&L Juke #1.  Side B.

Deeper in Love With You, by the O’Jays.  A great song.

There’s Gonna be a Showdown, Archie Bell & the Drells

Everybody Plays the Fool, The Main Ingredient.  This is a truly great song.

Sweet Virginia Breeze, Robbin Thompson and Steve Bassett.

 

After last week’s deep-dive into Mack the Knife, loyal reader and good friend Mike Godfrey wrote “Good info about Lotte Lenya, but who was Ol’ Lucy Brown?”  Good question Mike.  So, as I wrote, Mack the Knife was written for The Threepenny Opera.  The story itself goes back to 1727, when Captain Macheath first appeared in John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera.  Macheath was a highwayman (robber), folk-hero type, and would bounce around English literature and culture well into the 1900’s.  Bertold Brecht tells the story in 1928’s The Threepenny Opera.  I didn’t clarify last week about Weill’s role is that he wrote the music for Brecht’s play.  Anyway, in The Threepenny Opera, Mack is a bad and violent criminal (murder, rape, arson).  Jenny Diver and Lucy Brown were characters in Threepenny Opera.  All 3 appeared in The Beggar’s Opera, in which Jenny and Sukey set up Macheath for arrest, and Lucy is “Lucy Lockit”, who is in love with Mack and helps him escape.  In Threepenny Opera, Lucy Brown claims to be married to Mack.  Jenny is a prostitute with whom Mack has a relationship.  Sukey Tawdry is a character in The Beggar’s Opera, but best I can tell not Threepenny; just mentioned in the song.

Loyal Forever

The Austin High Maroons keep on winning.  Led by Longhorn commit Charles Wright, the Maroons are 3-0 with victories over Connally (65-14), Bowie (57-56), and Akins (51-14).  Big game Friday night against Lake Travis.

Another young man on the team, Harrison Donovan, son of friends Jacy & John Donovan, plays guard.  He was a pre-season All-Centex pick, and he has committed to go play at a very fine school, Washington & Lee University.  Last week against Akins, Charles and Harrison connected on a Big Man Touchdown.  Good call Mike!

Jim Nicar

A great photograph from 1934. “The Littlefield Fountain was completed in the spring of 1933, but work on the new Main Building and Tower began in late January, 1935. For less than two years, visitors to campus would have seen the fountain and Old Main together.”  @JimNicar on Twitter, 10.19.2020.

Lots more great stuff on his website, The UT History Corner, https://jimnicar.com/

 

Stay healthy folks, and let’s hope the Horns do too!

 God Bless Texas
