The question Redline is whether YOU even watched the game. We started the UT game the same way we have started every game this year. It wasn't UT and it wasn't because we won last year. You're wrong so just grow up. This team played hard and if it wasn't for the mistakes would have been right in the game with even a chance to win. We lost because of the mistakes not because of any sense of entitlement.
The players came out last night like they were entitled a win. They believed because we beat them in their house last year, that they could just show up and win. CPR needs to clean this up ASAP.
No they didn't. Quit being overdramatic and quit trying to find things that aren't there. Physically, we matched up with them. You can't turn the ball over three times in the first quarter and beat a team like Texas. As far as I could tell, the guys were ready to play. It's not like they didn't try. They just made mistakes.
It wasn't mentality. It was the turnovers and mental mistakes and penalties that lost the game. Texas is a very good team. The refs didn't help but they didn't beat us either. Our o-line was shot which made it even harder to get things going on offense.
The fact is we moved the ball against Texas all night as the 380 yards in offense showed. And 3 late flag and questionable penalties alone took away about 150 yards and two touchdowns we could have had, so this was not a physical mismatch at all as our games with texas often are. Turnovers gave the Texas offense plenty of help and penalties gave the texas defense plenty of help, and that's got to be corrrected.
