2012 opponents: Fear The ThighMaster

Sept. 8 - NEW MEXICO
Sept. 15 - at Mississippi
Sept. 29 - at Oklahoma State
Oct. 6 - WEST VIRGINIA
Oct. 13 - vs. Oklahoma (Dallas)

Some quick thoughts:

  • For Longhorn season ticket holders, the additions of TCU and West Virginia saved what would have been a garbage home slate
  • The season likely hinges on a four game stretch from Sept 29th-Oct 20: @ OSU, West Virginia, OU, Baylor. That run is preceded by a bye week and Manny Diaz will need every minute of it
  • Texas-OU moving from the first weekend in October is sacrilege (no, it's not, I'm an idiot), but I like having five games under our belt
  • @ Tech Nov 3rd and @ KSU December 1 are clear trap games
  • The Sooners face road games @ WVU, @ TCU, @ KSU, @ Tech, @ ISU. Expect one of our new conference mates to inflict a loss on the Sooners
  • The 2012 conference champion won't go unblemished - a three way tie between 2 loss teams isn't out of the question
  • I still think this Texas team can finish the season with double digit wins
