Mack Brown is starting to pull "Al Davis" moves and fact is, he is done and just won't face it.
I think the line stinks and the books are figuring that Brown will platoon Quarterbacks or even start the freshman. A short two score spread has too many flags. Bottom line...Brown is grabbing straws to save his season and his ass. Athletic Director's decision to retire is directly related to Brown falling off the deep end. Program is slowly turning into a joke.Texas could roll tonight, but I think this is a contest where they could just blow up. Line is dropping, but two scores should be enough.

I bought the line when it started to drop yesterday.
Take the advice or leave it.
Vegas book update I was sent this morning...
There was a wide range of opening numbers for this game, as high as Texas -10 at the Wynn – the first Vegas book to post college football lines – and down to 7.5 elsewhere. By Thursday morning, it seems to have settled at 8 at most shops. A few shops were still dealing 8.5 as of this posting.
