Garrett Gilbert: A Case of Revisionist History

Was Garrett Gilbert just overrated? A look back at his previous year.

Total QB Rating

An interesting, proposed new stats system for rating QB's. The passer rating we're familiar with was not a bad general statistic if one knew what it measured and how it measured it (unfortunately, many did not, leading them to either rely too heavily on passer rating or ignorantly reject it altogether), but given that it was just a summary of basic stats on a per-attempt basis, it could be pretty limited. This new rating system attempts to include more about a QB's play, but it can possibly get pretty subjective since one has to decide how to divide blame or credit on any given play. And if Jay Cutler wasn't already viewed as an erratic QB already, apparently this new system makes him look worse.

Thunderdome apologizes

This blog was never intended to be taken seriously. Rather, the intent of The Tunderdome was to serve as a farce to demonstrate just how absurd and outlandish the claims and statements made by many blogs and websites covering high school football, specifically in Texas, can be. Going a bit further, every claim made by The Thunderdome was something that had already been posted on other websites…we merely were trying to serve as a conduit to bring those rumors and allegations into the light and demonstrates their absurdity. Somewhere between intent and execution, things got out of hand. For these transgressions, I am truly sorry. 1. Nobody took that seriously (as in, believed it), but definitely took exception to the accusations and 2. If that was meant to be satirical, he needs to work on that skill. Ooooooops.

Longhorn Scott Discusses Power O

The QB situation has made us uneasy, but this seems like good news. Or if it's not good news, it's at least interesting to read.

Now that was just totally unnecessary. Oh, and he might go to jail for that. Don't kick other teams' mascots, though I would be amused if someone tried to kick Bevo. edit: Oh, and before you get mad at him, here's his explanation: "I want to apologize to the fans," he said after the game. "I was not trying to hurt the owl. I did it to see if it would fly." Worst. Lie. Ever.

Assessing Greg Davis

Assessing Greg Davis' time at Texas.

"This is the way the world season ends This is the way the season ends This is the way the season...

"This is the way the world season ends This is the way the season ends This is the way the season ends Not with a bang but a whimper." For some reason, I thought of this poem when the final seconds of the clock ticked away as the ball wobbled on the ground.
