The 2OT: Does it even matter anymore?

What impact, if any, will this game have on the overall future of this program?

The thought.

We're down to the last week of the regular season. On top of that it's Texas week yet, after everything, beating the Longhorns seems like an afterthought. The one thought on everyone's mind this week is what happens next?

What a win against Texas means.

The Red Raider’s would end the regular season on a much needed high note and become bowl eligible. Bowl eligibility of course means extra practices and possibly a chance to really break in a new quarterback or work out the problems with Shimonek.

What a loss against Texas means.

The season is over… and that's it. We all await the impending press conference from Kirby Hocutt Monday morning (which we might do anyway even if we win).

So what impact, if any, will this game have on the overall future of this program. Depending on who you ask, this matchup against Texas will be either be crucial, or it doesn't matter because decisions have already been made. What's also interesting is that the people who say the game doesn't matter are divided on what the final outcome will actually be.

The take.

I think if in fact a decision about Kingsbury has already been made, then that decision will be to keep him on another season. Even if Hocutt is currently leaning towards letting Kingsbury go, a win over Texas on the road could very easily sway him back in the other direction. Personally, I believe that if a coaching change is made this off season, I believe it will be in the offensive coordinator position.

What's your take?
