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. After giving up the most rushing yards in school history against BYU, being embarrassed by Ole Miss and then beating a less-than-good Kansas State team, the Longhorns go on the road after having 11 days off.  After Texas went into Ames on Thursday night on national television and gave such a lousy performance, you have to just say: The Texas Longhorns aren’t fun to watch anymore. I might not be a football coach, but I know when I see a quarterback with limited abilities. I know when I see a defense that lacks discipline. Texas obviously didn’t take Iowa State seriously and it showed. You only play football for 12 days in a 365 day year. If you can’t get up and play your best every game, then don’t play the game. Any common sense football goes out the window when the Longhorns p...

Ash to remain out for Texas, McCoy to start against OU

Texas quarterback David Ash won't be making his return against Oklahoma. Case McCoy will start at quarterback against the Sooners because Ash is still suffering from "lingering effects" of a head injury, the school announced on Saturday. McCoy completed 26 of his career-high 45 passes for 244 yards in a 31-30 win over Iowa State on Thursday. He didn't have an...

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...

Texas fumbles on back-to-back carries on the 1-yard line

The Texas Longhorns were trying to score a touchdown to tie the game against Iowa State when runningback Jonathan Gray put the ball on the turf twice.  On the first fumble it appeared that the ball came out before Gray was down and Iowa State recovered the fumble, but the call on the field stood.  On his next carry, Gray clearly fumbled the ball but was able to recover it before...

Making Sense of the Longhorns quarterback situation

WATCH: Longhorns end first half with Hail Mary against Cyclones

Texas Longhorns quarterback Case McCoy nails a Hail Mary to end the first half of the team’s Thursday night game at Iowa State.

What are the Texas Longhorns playing for?

Photo: Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports Well, until another loss they have as good a shot as anyone to win the Big 12 championship. But, I know as well as you do that the Longhorns are more than likely going to surrender that opportunity in the form of a few conference losses. So, what are the Texas Longhorns waiting for when it comes to the quarterback situation? According to reports...

Video: Texas WR Mike Davis takes cheap shot on Iowa State DB

Texas Longhorns wide receiver Mike Davis took a total cheap shot on the Iowa State defensive back who was covering him during their Thursday night game.

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

Mike Davis is an incredible talent; a definite bright spot on a Texas team that  is lacking. He will be drafted in one of the higher rounds this year, but until then and until someone else does something dirty he will be one of the most despised players in college football. Why? Because of this: From Yahoo! Sports The game of football is a tough one when played right...

Iowa St HC Paul Rhoads Rants on Officials After Texas Loss (Video)

After more than a few questionable calls tonight, Iowa State lost at home to Texas 31-30. Most notably, there was a fumble by Longhorns RB Johnathan Gray that everyone outside of Austin thought should have been called that wasn’t. Rhoads is a pretty excitable coach so we know the rant would be good after this one. He does have a legit gripe here.

Heartbreaker in Ames

As Case McCoy drove Texas down the field in the final minutes, the euphoria that had enveloped the stadium just moments earlier — a six-point leave, with three minutes left — began to dissipate, another feeling rising in: dread

Seconds From Disaster: Texas beats Iowa State

Photo: Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports Things can get wacky on Thursday night football, as we’ve seen giants slayed over and over and over again. This time, there were no giants, just a Texas team led by a coach delusional enough to see an 11-2 BCS bowl winner out there facing off against a scrappy bunch led by a coach who will one day be at a major school commensurate with his...

Texas A&M and The 12th Man. The Story of the 21st Man.

Photo credit: Kipp Jones, Wikimedia Commons After hearing one of the greatest stories in the history of college football, the story of the 12th Man as told by Texas A&M, I began to wonder why the tale wasn’t recited to every school-age boy. A rag-tag team from a farm school in Texas, playing the top-ranked team in the nation. The outmanned farmers suffered injury after injury...

Texas Longhorns vs. Iowa State Cyclones: Odds, Point Spread, Over/Under and tv info

getty The Texas Longhorns (2-2) and Iowa State Cyclones (1-2) will meet Thursday night in a match-up of two Big-12 schools. Things have not been good for the Longhorns this season and head coach Mack Brown may ultimately pay with his job for his inability to bring in a capable quarterback. Last week the Longhorns weathered the storm beating Kansas State after convincing losses to...

Texas survives Iowa State and Mack Brown is excited

Texas versus Iowa State on Thursday was a lot closer then it use to be. The Longhorns would defeat the Cyclones just by showing up but needed some late breaks to do so this time. While most of Texas screamed at their televisions and closed their eyes one man was excited. Mack Brown. Above is Brown celebrating after the Longhorns scored the go-ahead touchdown. Below is Brown and defensive...
