Most of the focus on last night's screw job in Ames will revolve around the botched call that cost Iowa State the upset, but we need to talk about Mike Davis before he gets lost in the shuffle, because the Longhorns senior receiver dished out the dirtiest hit of the 2013 season last night: How can the NCAA spend an entire offseason writing new rules for targeting to prevent injuries then let that fly with a 15-yard penalty on a kickoff? Isn't the whole point of the targeting rule to prevent people from causing injuries with illegal hits?

The Morning After: Longhorns Aren’t Fun To Watch Anymore

Football is one of those unique sports in America. It’s a sport with a season that is shorter than the offseason. This leads football to be largely based on perception. Every play, every mistake is magnified.

Texas Longhorns Mike Davis Just Became the Most Despised Player in College Football

Big 12 issues statement on Iowa State - Texas fumble ruling

We've all seen the play by now. Texas running back Johnathan Gray plows into the line and goes down except he's missing one thing; the football. Iowa State linebacker, Jeremiah George, happened to have it running the other way. The officials ruled Gray was down by contact and after a review, the booth apparently failed to see enough evidence to overturn the call. Well, the...
