    Ingram didn't play much of the game. Richardson, a freshman, ran for 109 yards and two TDs.

    He had 22 carries.


    He averaged 20 per game on the season.

    So maybe Texas learned a lesson about depth the hard way. The kid only had about 30 pass attempts all year.

    They beat Wyoming by 31 points and the frosh only got 3 passing attempts for the whole game. They whooped UTEP by over 50 points and he got 6 attempts. A 31 point win over Kansas and he is 0 for 1 passing? Texas slapped Oklahoma State 41-14 and he got to throw twice, completing 1 for 5 yards. They beat UCF 35-3 and he didn't even play.

    I'll admit that I didn't watch any Texas games, but seeing stats like that makes me wonder if they kept Colt in games longer than he should have been so he could accumulate stats for his heisman run. If so, bit 'em in the arse.

    What I meant was that he was cramping and on the sidelines while a backup ran the ball down down Texas' throats.

    Yeah, but his backup is just as good as he is and has plenty experience. Not so with Texas/Colt.

    Isn't that part of the point? The best teams have depth. That is oversimplifying things because the QB is the most difficult position on the team but I wondered, when it happened, why Texas didn't have anyone but a freshman QB on the roster.

    The best teams have depth? Seriously?

    So a college team's star QB really shouldn't ever matter. Everyone should have a Heisman candidate just waiting to step right in.

    that's hilarious. NO TEAM. NOT ONE would be able to do that.

    Even if you have great depth you can't just get a Colt McCoy off the bench. If Texas had beat Florida in the NC game and Tebow left with an early injury, SEC fans would be saying the same thing.

    Naahhhh. The best teams have depth.

    Look at the Colts. They'd be just as good without Peyton Manning.

    Course on the flip side, the Wolverines would be just as bad without Forcier.
