The regular season has come to a close, but there is still plenty of football to be played.
Beginning Thursday the countdown to No. 1 continues as both TAPPs and UIL enter playoff mode.
stakes are raised and the intensity level is heightened. The field of teams has already been cut in half and every week the process will be replicated until champions are crowned, the trophies lifted, and the measurements are taken for those coveted state championship rings.
Records go out the windows at this point. Everyone is even, and anyone is capable of going on a roll.
This week it is win or go home as 18 of the Horns 2010 commitments begin the playoffs and another starts next weekend. In fact the only commit not in the playoffs was a point away in the final game.
All in all it has been a great year for commits in Mack Brown's 2010 recruiting class, and now it's time to go all out, pedal to the medal, as that final goal is in sight.
