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 Red Raiders.
David Ash runs for a big gain against Texas Tech.
Pre-Game (15:00) WTH Skies?! We owe a big debt to the men and women of the Armed Forces that were in attendance and for those who have lost their life which were shown on the Jumbotron. I thought it was a good sign when the first of the parachute team landed right in the middle of the field on the Longhorn logo. Cool!
1st Quarter (9:45) WTH Academy?! I understand that you need to get the Red Raiders out of rhythm and try to slow them down, but do you really need that performance. Emmanuel Acho apparently was trying to get off the field when the coaching staff told him to stay on the ground.

ScoutTV's Britton Lynn caught up with the former 5-Star recruit to talk about the culture shock, why he thinks its important to be a leader on the team and their upcoming game against Boston University.
… or, “seven minutes in Texas”.
By way of my Facebook friendship with With Leather legend Josh Zerkle comes the story of a Texas family’s attempts to jump a small ramp on bikes that I can say without hyperbole is worth every second of its 6-minute, 58-seconds run-time.
Listing off the funniest parts of the video is like trying to explain the plot of Duck Soup. Hot Rod...
That non-serious knee injury to Texas receiver Jaxon Shipley has turned out to be a lot more serious than many of us probably anticipated. After missing last week’s win over Texas Tech, it appears Shipley will be absent again this Saturday against Missouri. Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com tweets today that Shipley is a no-go for…
The Texas Longhorns return to the road this Saturday to take on Missouri. The Longhorns are coming off a 52-20 win at home over Texas Tech, while the Tigers are coming off of a 42-39 loss to Baylor in Waco.
Running back injuries are piling up for Texas. Despite warming up on the field in pregame, freshmen Malcolm Brown (turf toe) and Joe Bergeron (hamstring) don’t look like they’ll be playing today against Missouri. To make matters worse, senior back Fozzy Whittaker suffered an awkward-looking knee injury early in the first quarter. Whittaker planted his right…
