UT loses because of clock

Since if this were about OU/USC/or OSU and Venom would have posted this 1.3 seconds after the story broke, I'll got ahead and post this for him.

Mack says UT lost because of the new clock rules. The game was over before they had a chance to get back in it....well duh.

I would like to go on the record and blame the clock ahead of time for any misfortune that may and emphasis 'may" befall my beloved Aggies, also included in this excuse of future games are OU, TCU, USC, ND, Tennessee, Sam Houston State and any and all colleges accept for UT

The new timing rules do suck, but there is no excuse to not be ready for them seeing as how everyone has known about it well ahead of the season start.

If the NCAA really wants the games to be 3 hours, why don't they use the same timing rules as the NFL? It's been working for them very well.

and not exactly taken in context, although the title of the article would make you think otherwise. If you listen to the interview it makes more sense.



Either way the new rule sucks. I was watching the replay of the Tech/UTEP game and unless your team is reading to go after a punt or whatnot, you lose about 15sec. and that's a TON in college with under a minute to go in the game. I haven't heard a coach yet that has liked this. Hell, Leach was bitching about it earlier this week.

I'm thinking that if there was more time OSU would have won by more. It isn't like Texas played like shit in the first 3 quarters and then poored it on in the 4th. Look at it from OSU's point, they had 22 less minutes to pad their stats.

I think the new rules suck, it shortens the actual time of the game that we as fans get to watch.

Leach is bitching because he will not be able rack up the offensive stats as much as in the past. Maybe there is a clause in his contract that says if he gets a certain amount of offensive yardage for the year he gets an additional bonus. Who the hell knows. A team that runs the ball well and can grind out the game will have an advantage. Should see a lot lower scoring games this year.

That's quite a spin you put on that. He said it hurt them, not that they lost because of it.

Have we found a way to measure "spin" these days? Technology just gets better and better.

OSU was the better team and would have won regardless...

There are some good point made though. Although Mack was filling his team in the blanks, I read it as more of a blanket statement that could be made for any team that loses valuable time during a change of possesion.

I'm personally not a fan of the new clock rules.

The new clock rules do suck. The speeding up of the game only allowed the Aggies to hang 51 points on ULaLa Saturday. But i guess it was a good thing, I was getting tired of standing and WHOOPING that long. But really, they are taking away alot of the game.

I'm not trying to harp on any UT fans but Venom. I route for UT in every game except for games against OSU. It's just giving him back as much shit as possible right now because HE deserves it.

Lol, I can't say I read much of anything he posted. Didn't get on here until AFTER the game. Anyway, if it's just directed at him, carry on

After watching the first 2 weeks of the new rules, I don't like them either. A team loses way too much time that they should be playing. You lose time just from someone touching the ball with their foot and you not even wanting to return the ball . The main bitch was that the games are getting too long. Well here's an idea: Instead of cutting their time short, quit selling so much fucking advertising so you don't have to keep taking commercial breaks, asshats.
