Where does this Texas football team stand now? It’s an honest question that deserves an honest answer. Photo: Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE The first non-Texas A&M Thanksgiving game couldn’t have gone any worse for the Longhorns. The team played from behind the entire night and was embarrassed on a national scale during a day when the entire nation was watching them self-destruct in the only college football game that was being played on Turkey Day. It’s been a roller coaster of a season and I think the most obvious thing we can take away from this game, if you haven’t already learned it, is that the fans, the media, and even the coaches really never know what Texas team will show up on a week to week basis. Sigh… 1. Recipe for Disaster: The blueprint for Texas to lose was almost perfect. Both quarterbacks turned the ball over badly in a game where they were going to need to be relied on more than most, since TCU has one of the nation’s best run defenses. The Longhorns ended the ...

Leftover Turkey… and Battle Wounds

A House Divided

Photo by Phil Roeder Following an embarrassing 20-13 home loss by the Texas Longhorns to the TCU Horned Frogs, the goodwill cached by Mack Brown and company during a 4 game winning streak all but evaporated. Watching Twitter, Facebook, and the Internet, it was easy to see the vast majority of fans wanted blood, and wanted it now. Even the hard core fans, ones who never wavered after...

McCoy to start at QB vs. K-State

Texas is making a change at quarterback, turning from banged-up starter David Ash to Case McCoy to lead the No. 23 Longhorns in their regular-season finale at No. 7 Kansas State.

TCU 20, Texas 13: Two teams heading in surprisingly different directions

When Texas A&M packed up for the SEC last year, Texas decided it wanted to start a new Thanksgiving game tradition with new teams. Right now, the Longhorns may be wondering if some traditions are best left to run their course. Behind a bruising running game – TCU attempted just 9 passes on the night – the Horned Frogs hammered out a 20-13 win over the error-prone ‘Horns...
