    When are they going to go back to full capacity? Last home game looked like they caped at 10%

    I missed most of the game. From what I gather from here, Twitter and elsewhere, it appears that Sark once again failed to make halftime adjustments. If so, that's becoming a trend with him, and a big red flag.

    No idea, haven't watched or been to a game in years. Austin FC does seem to be doing things right from a fan/marketing perspective, I'm sure I'll hit a game at some point.

    I was kidding. No one goes to dynamo games and it’s a running joke in the mls.

    I have no idea what happened with their ownership/management but every time I check the standings in the paper they're always near the bottom.

    Sark is a ****ing idiot.

    up 14 with A Bijan in your backfield….

    Why we don't get that D rest by FOCUSING on BIJAN left and BIJAN RIGHT, and then play action passes, is beyond me.

    And WHY THE **** does the NFL notice how good Tight ENDS are, and we can't get one at UT????

    GET A ****ING TIGHT END TO PUNISH those small defenders.

    Texas had a 14 point lead only once in the game - at 17-3. That offensive drive for Texas had a pair of throwing 1st downs but then ended with a Bijan run for 0 yards, another Bijan run for 0 yards, and then a 3rd and 10 pass that was the INT for TD. It sounds like they tried to do exactly what you suggested. So if Sark is an idiot as a result, then what do we infer?

    In the last 5 drives of the game, Bijan's runs went for 2, 4, 0, -2, and 9 yards. Maybe Okie State figured something out, similar to OU last week.

    Right, that is why you mix in some play action passes - it is simple, but you need a TIGHT END....to make it sing.

    And Bijan is going to get stuffed some times, but most times, he will get you some yards....plus you can hit him with a swing pass out of the backfield....in the flat....

    Just get the ball to your BEST player.

    Or there is contact at/behind the line of scrimmage on basically every play, drop back or run.

    Let me know if I'm wrong, but I don't think I am.

    at one point they were owned by the same group who owned the Galaxy…AT THE SAME TIME! What kind of Mickey Mouse league allows that? They have a new owner as of June of this year, so hopefully that changes things. Neither the Dynamo or FC Dallas draw very well in attendance.

    The play calling after that 9 yard run was mind blowing.
