That The Hogs were probably overrated with the Number 7 ranking. A&M isn’t as good as advertised. Texas hasn’t been great since Mac Brown left. We have a fine team, but hopefully, expectations aren’t too high.
My fear is that many Hog Fans expect this team to perform like a Top 10 team the rest of the way. When fans get disappointed, they do bizarre things to coaching staffs. That, in turn harms recruiting and makes lives miserable for sensible fans.
