(Longhorns QB Colt McCoy after his unsuccessful first quarter dive for a TD, pretty much the last meaningful action he’d see in a stint shortened by a shoulder injury on the above play)
Yikes. Hello, Holiday Bowl. For Texas, that is. It’s one thing for the likes of Texas Tech to put up crazy numbers in the air against the Horns, but losing Colt McCoy is only part of the story. You wouldn’t figure unranked K-State to put up 45 on Texas, nor would Josh Freeman and his tricktastic backfield be expected to throw for more than 300 yards in a game where they weren’t playing catch-up most of the night. I realize I’m not giving nearly enough credit to the hosts, but I must’ve been completely delusional to think a team so erratic against the pass had a shot, however remote, at repeating as national champs.
The nicest thing I’ll say about this upset is that at least it relegated Bob Huggins to 2nd class status on his opening day.

Texas is still totally in line to win the Big 12 BCS berth. But it will probably be interesting.
ok, so I overstated things. Hello, Cotton Bowl!
Fiesta, most likely. However, a loss to A&M would probably make your first guess right; a loss to Nebraska, your second.
I’ve been to the Fiesta mart, Jason. Great selection and conveniently located right off I-35. terrible place for a bowl game, however.
I’d rather not contemplate a 4 loss campaign….and while saturday’s result was no small surprise, after the way Nebraska and Texas Tech handled the longhorns’ D, maybe this was coming…
to the nameless dope who insists Texas were “outcoached”, yeah, whatever. And they lost their starting QB a couple of minutes in. If you don’t think that’s worth at least a 14 point swing, I’d suggest more time actually watching football and less time spent leaving infantile comments on a forum that makes this one look like the Algonquin Round Table.
