Matt Norlander over at CBSSports.com is a fan of this year’s Texas Longhorns, as he should be. They’re a very good team, no doubt. But with the UK-Texas game only days away, Norlander is saying what Big Blue Nation doesn’t want to hear right now: Texas can beat Kentucky.
If the Wildcats are to lose a game (and they will lose a game), this would be the ideal opponent (though not the right site) to have it happen. Just six outcomes in, Texas has proven what it is (awesome on defense, fairly deep, capable of scoring at all three levels) while showing more than glimpses, but rather sustained evidence, of what it can be.
These guys are long and tall. And experienced. And familiar with each other, and that intrateam understanding has been vital in the past two weeks. Winning without Taylor has been ultra-impressive, given the venues and overt doubts about how the offense would manage without one of the best point guards in the sport. Yet Texas remains on course.
All good points, Norlander, but Shhhhhhhhh. We like to think the Cats are invincible.
But you’re kind of right.
