There was little doubt that the Texas football team would beat New Mexico State Saturday.
Most of us were more interested to see how the Longhorns beat the Aggies, 56-7 answered a lot of those questions, although UT's slow start did leave some room for improvement.
Monday the Horns turned their attention to the next, and more challenging step of the schedule, the BYU Cougars.
"It'll be a whole lot better. New Mexico State did a good job coaching, but they didn't have depth and they wore out in the second half, and Brigham Young's got depth, they've got really good players, they pride themselves on being a tough team," Mack said at his weekly press conference Monday.
"I think it's good that we're challenged by two really good football team the next two weeks, and both of these teams are as good as we are. So we just gotta play good, and our guys know that, so I'm challenging our team, because I know Brigham Young is as tough as anybody in the country and they try as hard as anybody in the country, and Saturday night leaving there, I want us to be as tough and to have tried as hard as they did."
Baylor and A&M also had big first weeks, Johnny Manziel didn't play even half of his season opener, after receiving a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. ESPN.com writer Sam Khan says even after his fiery performance, teammates and coaches are still behind mister football.
"I think the vast majority are still behind him. The fan-base could not wait to see him until he got out, and the way Kyle Field sounded when he took the field was incredible," Khan noted about Johnny's debut Saturday.
The Bears had a less dramatic display as far as personnel went, and let the score do all the talking, taking the win in their opener against Wofford.
"Over the last few year's [Wofford's] played a lot of football games, won a lot of football games, but [Baylor] should be better, and we were better than they were [Saturday], and that's our job. We play at home and we should win," Head Coach Art Briles noted about the win Saturday.
On the prep level, one Willie Mays lit up on the field for McCallum. The famously-named Mays is earning even more popularity in a new sport than his name-sake, who landed an 88-yard reception for a touchdown in the Knight's season-opener against Anderson last Thursday.
