Hookem.com asked Texas fans to “Sound Off” on our Facebook page after they watched the Longhorns get a much-needed victory over winless Baylor.
As you can imagine, we got plenty of responses from relieved and jubilant fans after UT moved one step closer to a bowl game in its first season under coach Tom Herman. Here’s a sample of some popular responses. They have been edited for space and clarity.
Will Cuellar: Great Texas victory! Awesome team effort, notably the defense holding the opponent to 36 rushing yards. Shane Buechele did what I expected of him — he was efficient and opened up the running game, which had 175 yards while he threw for 79 percent. The offensive line was even hurting this game but it appeared to play better. That is what happens when you’re not one dimensional.
Steven Mann: I think they need to stick with Shane (Buechele) at quarterback. He’s more accurate on passing and he showed today that he can run the ball when he needs to.
Raymond Bradley: Offensive line looks decent when ball is handed off to running backs more than quarterbacks. Freshman running backs did an awesome job today. Stop abandoning the running game, Tim Beck.
Dennis Phipps: OK, I have mixed feelings on the TCU game. On one hand I really want the Horns to win the rest of their games. On the other hand, it would be great to see TCU in the playoff as an undefeated Big 12 representative.
