WTH?! (What the Heck?) moments are attempts to find the memorable and the off-beat perspective on Longhorns sports. Here are some interesting moments from the Texas’ game against the Rebels.
David Ash had a career game against the Ole Miss Rebels. (Statesman)
Pre-Game (15:00) WTH Hotty Toddy?! Wonder if Kenny Vaccaro liked this loud cheer? “Hotty Toddy, Gosh Almighty, Who The Hell Are We, Hey! Flim Flam, Bim Bam. Ole Miss By Damn!” Some of the 61,797 fans threw their toddy’s from the stands at the Longhorn players.
1st Quarter (9:41) WTH Edmond?! The first of three interceptions that the Horns collected as this INT went for a TD for LB Steve Edmond. Not too many other bright spots for the defense this game.
2nd Quarter (13:35) WTH Semper Fi?! The always Faithful Marquise Goodwin can be relied upon to make the big play. Marquise took a jet sweep 69 yards to the delight of a Marine in the end zone.
Halftime WTH Chicken?! If you’re going to be a “streaker” you need to be more co...
BEST OF MAXIM
Sophomore Quarterback David Ash was named the Davey O’Brien player of the week after leading the Longhorns to a 66-31 victory over Ole Miss in Oxford. The win gave the Longhorns their 3rd straight 3-0 start, Ash has started all three games this season and has quieted the QB controversy on the 40 acres for [...]
The Longhorns should enjoy this, because it may never happen again.
This team is King Tut's tomb. It is the hope diamond. It is a public appearance by David Letterman. Nicky Minaj in earth tones. A can of Surge.
This is the rarest of all specimens, a University of Texas football team that nobody knows is good enough to win the national championship.
This never happens....
Breaking down Texas quarterback David Ash's numbers, by down-and-distance.
On Saturday night, Texas ground Ole Miss into a fine paste, leaving Oxford with a 66-31 win. Much of the postgame chatter from coaches and media types centered around the size advantage Texas held, which they used to disperse whatever red jerseys were standing in their way.
But, was there something more to the dissection of the Rebel defense? Is there anything Ole Miss could...
(Eds: Updates.) By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports Writer Off to a 3-0 start and rising in the national rankings, the No. 12 Texas Longhorns are settling into an off week feeling surprisingly good about quarterback David Ash and a bit unnerved by the defense's habit of giving up of big plays for touchdowns.
Ash proved he can be an effective game manager in wins over Wyoming and New Mexico...
With another week down and several new developments across the college football landscape, let's take a quick run through of each conference's Week 3 performance.
The separation is pretty clear. Florida State and Clemson are at the top while the rest of the conference is lagging behind. Virginia Tech lost in embarrassing fashion to a Pitt team that had been...
Well, hopefully you are still with us as we enter week number 3. Because this is college football, there are always upsets, and last week proved that when Stanford beat USC.
Now mind you Stanford didn't have Andrew Luck or any of the other graduates who went on to play in the NFL or running corporations, but they still won.
We think it's because ESPN picked USC to win...
