Texas Longhorns -Hornfaninbama (BulgyTexas) Texas Longhorns Win Season Opener Dominant Second Half Leads to Rout Austin, TX- The Heisman candidacy of Sr. QB Colt McCoy got off to a rocky start on Saturday. The QB passed for 327 yards and 3 TD but also managed to throw 3 passes to the ULM Warhawks. All three were intercepted by SR MLB Cardia Jackson. The rest of the offense fared well in the season and home opener with Cody Johnson and Fozzy Whittaker combining for 28 carries for 179 yards and 2 TD. Johnson led the team with 17 carries for 113 yards and a TD. Coach Bulgy was not happy with the way his team performed on the field this week, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œIf we play like that against any team in the Big XII we will get beat, and not just beat, but stomped. Our starting SR QB cannot come out and play the way he did in the first half.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â McCoy managed to throw 2 picks in the first half. One of the picks was in the endzone after the Horns had driven the length of the field on their first drive. The Horns redzone worries werenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t all McCoyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s. The Horns also lost 2 fumbles in the redzone. The Longhorns had 9 drives inside the WarhawkÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s 20 yard line only to have 3 of them end in turnovers. Coach Bulgy went on to say that he was happy with the way the runners were able to pound the ball all game long. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWhen we can have 2 guys run as hard as Fozzy and Cody did all day we have the chance to be very successful. But we canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t turn the ball over like we did today. We put our defense in some tough situations.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â The defense played admirably against the run; only allowing 37 yards on 34 carries and also managed to come up with 4 sacks. 2 by OLB Kheeston Randle. They played well in pass defense too, but struggled to make tackles in open space. Warhawk QB Trey Revell only completed 12 passes but threw for 299 yards, a testament to the Horns problems making tackles. They did force 3 interceptions, 2 by MLB Roddrick Muckelroy and one by Chykie Brown. Coach Bulgy was adamant that his defense would perform better this week against Wyoming. He takes the team into Laramie to face the Cowboys. The Longhorns better not take them lightly as last season the dropped the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville. Senior QB Colt McCoy said, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œI will play better next week. I have to, this team looks to me for leadership. If I am not on, this offense canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t function to its full capabilities. When I throw well it opens up lots of lanes for the guys carrying the ball, and I need to be more careful with it.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â McCoy acknowledged he forced some passes last week and that he needs to be less of a gunslinger in the pocket. The Longhorns take on the Cowboys Saturday night at 7pm on cable channel VS.
