Turn Up The Heat! Flanagan’s Thoughts From The Week

- The football team finished 8-4. Now they head into the Alamo Bowl staring at a potential 8-5 record. Mack Brown use to talk about what Texas has accomplished and the standard it should always hold up. Now anyone who followed this team knew that this year wasn’t championship material. Most expected progress from the 2011 season. Last year we had a great defense and a bad offense. This year was decent offense and bad defense. Now this team is a year older and they have not improved on the win loss record the way many Longhorn fans hoped for. So the Longhorns can end 2012 going 8-5 once again with a bigger blowout loss to Oklahoma than they had last year. Add in that Texas will lose Alex Okafor, Kenny Vaccaro and possibly Jackson Jeffcoat, the future is bleak for Mack Brown at Texas.

- The basketball team is going in to face Georgetown tonight at Madison Square Garden. Georgetown is a very beatable team so don’t let that 15th ranking fool you. They don’t shoot the ball well at all. Texas has been much better on defense and should give the Hoyas a good fight. If the Longhorns win, that will give them a resume win that will help their chances of going to a 15th straight NCAA Tournament.

College Football Thoughts

- Northern Illinois deserves to go to the Orange Bowl. Those are the rules but the Orange Bowl would of rather wanted Oklahoma or Georgia. With that being said, the Orange Bowl went off on Twitter.


I don’t think that was appropriate but then again I think the Orange Bowl has to stand up for their bowl matchup. They were forced to take Northern Illinois but this is a big deal for that school and for the Orange Bowl to not protect their pick would have de-legitimize their bowl even further.

- Johnny Manziel will win the Heisman but if I hear any Aggies that he is better than Vince Young, you are crazy.
