Yeah, I think my takes are getting a little spicier day by day. All offseason, I maintained that Alabama was too good for Texas to beat. I've maintained that this game would be a barometer for Steve Sarkisian and his team to see where they were, but that their biggest focus needed to be on conference play and winning the Big 12. Sark said as much this week, when he "downplayed" the matchup between the Longhorns and his former boss, Nick Saban. When asked about the game, Sark brought up wanting to be in the Big 12 championship game in December and how this game had no bearing on that. The oddsmakers have deemed that Texas are 20 point underdogs to the Crimson Tide. So all hope should be lost right? Wrong. For all the talk about what is supposed to happen, nothing has actually happened. Quinn Ewers, Bijan Robinson, and Xavier Worthy will look to go out at DKR on Saturday and shock the world, to beat Bryce Young, Will Anderson and the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday. With former Alabama coaches such as Sark, Jeff Banks and Kyle Floood, and players like Agiye Hall, Keilan Robinson and Jahleel Billingsley wearing burnt orange, this sure seems to be one for the ages. Even Fox Noon Kickoff and College Gameday are attending the event in Austin so you know it's going to be a good time. The legend Lee Corso. Joel Klatt and Gus Johnson calling the game. The rematch from the 2009 National Championship game where Colt McCoy threw two passes and ripped the hearts out of every Longhorn fan nationwide. If I don't stop now I'll never stop but as I get closer to this game on Saturday. I can't help but to think that team in the burnt orange gon have something to say about it. #HookEm
